Comb hair through to ensure you begin with a tangle-free base.
Section the hair into a low deep parting. Then using the occipital bone as a guide create another section around the head. Pin this top section up.
Wind the wand
Gently mist the hair with texturising spray. Gauge the thickness of the hair and take sections (large sections if the hair is thinner) then wrap around the wand right down to the ends. If you are looking for more volume, wind the hair under the barrel rather than over the top of the barrel. Hold for 10-15 seconds and then allow the hair to fall.
Continue this process around the bottom section – three of four mini sections wound around the wand should be enough. You are not looking for a deep set curl – you are just adding a soft texture.
Release and repeat
Take down the top section of hair and repeat this process, taking care to maintain the deep parting you created at the beginning.
Take your dressing brush and spray with hairspray then gently work through the hair pulling right from the roots down to the ends.
On the larger side sweep section use you dressing brush and plenty of hairspray to work texture into the hair.
Spray, spray, spray
Then, take your hairspray – lift sections of hair and spray as it falls through your fingers – this gets the product into the hair and adds plenty of foundation and a lovely textured finish.
Smooth it down
On the low side use a comb and a little spray to comb the hair down around the ear – giving contrast to the bouncy textured sweep on the other side of the head.
The finished look
A fine mist of hairspray all over and your sexy side-swept style should stay in place all night!
