Release the styler just before the bottom of the hair for a straighter, more modern end.
step six Repeat steps 4 and 5, but curl towards face
On the next section, repeat the technique, but this time rotate the styler towards the face.
TIP: Changing the direction of the rotation creates a natural texture.
step seven: Repeat steps 4 and 6 across all hair
Continue the technique throughout the hair working in sections, always alternating the direction and leaving a straight end.
TIP: On the front sections we want to kick the hair off the face around the eyes.
step eight: Bring one side down and place styler in hair
Bring one side of your hair down over the face and place the styler in pointing towards your nose.
step nine: Glide with no rotation
Smooth the root out with the styler with no turn on it.
step ten: At eyebrow level, turn styler away and pull section back
When you reach eyebrow level, begin to turn the styler away from the face and pull the section backwards.
step eleven: Repeat on other side
Repeat on the other front section, rotating away from the face and pulling the section backwards.
