Get the look:

“I applied CHI Magnified Volume Finishing Spray and CHI Twisted Fabric to each section of hair before curling with a 1” CHI Orbit Wand. After curling we rolled each sub-section up with our fingers and set the curls with clips. Once all curls are set, we applied a little more finishing spray. One hour later, we removed all clips and brushed the hair. I used CHI Magnified Volume and CHI Shine Infusion to finish the look."
