Step-by-Step Styling

  1. Prep the hair for maximum shine by applying Clairol Professional Jazzing in Clear to dried hair from root to tip. Let the product sit for 15 minutes and then rinse it out.
  2. Using a round brush, blow-dry the hair in sections until completely dried.
  3. Tease the hair at the roots on top of the head and apply clip-ins in a matching hue backwards for added volume.
  4. Spritz the face framing pieces with gold hairspray for temporary sheen and brightness.
  5. Create a deep side part and create a ponytail at the crown. Then twist the hair around the ponytail to create a bun.
  6. Secure with pins, and loosen random pieces to create a more voluminous bun.
  7. Spritz with muze|hair Last Look Hairspray for long-lasting hold.
