Celebrity hairdresser to the stars Serge Normant has shared some of his tricks over the last few weeks and now he's breaking down the steps to get smooth & straight locks resembling the model below.
Step 1. Spray Meta Lush Volumizer from root to tip through damp hair.
Step 2: Create a defined side part.
Step 3: Blow dry with a middle size round brush giving a good band to the ends.
Step 4: Using a 1 inch barrel curling iron, curl the bottom half of the hair but be mindful to use larger sections of hair as not to over curl.
Step 5: Brush till you see the shape you want.
