Giving away all the goods in this one from the best products to all the tips and tricks to help your hair look and feel its best.  This tutorial is for when you are feeling a little fancy or have a special event you have to attend.

Keep it classy with polished, well-defined waves.  A retro-glam way to wear your waves is to one side. It’s also a great way to show off a half-shaven head if that’s more your style.  Start off by spraying your hair with a heat protectant, my go-to is  Electric London P4 Preparation Spray- CLICK HERE to SHOP NOW.

Followed by wrapping your two-inch sections of hair in the same direction around your curling rod or a KQC istick Wand and hold until the heat distributes through your hair, usually a couple of seconds.  When you wrap your sections of hair vertically around a curling rod or wand, always wrap them in the same direction so the hair falls in a perfect, S-shape pattern.  Leave out the ends of your hair when doing this.  I like to wrap the hair away from my face however if you are going for old Hollywood Glam then I would recommend wrapping the hair inward toward your face. Whichever direction you decide to keep it consistent throughout your hair. Once all of your hair is curled allow the curls to cool before brushing them through.  After they have cooled brush through the waves with a boar-bristle brush and then mist them for hold with a bit of hair spray, Design Me Hold Me.

Is your goal to gain more lift at your roots? Then do not skip this step, be sure to add some Electric London C-8 Volume Chalk lightly into your roots. Lastly, if you want more shine then finish off with a shine spray like Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray, which smells divine.

I’ve included a 𝐃𝐈𝐒𝐂𝐎𝐔𝐍𝐓 𝐂𝐎𝐃𝐄 at the end of the video for Electric London because the entire line is 𝘖𝘜𝘛𝘚𝘛𝘈𝘕𝘋𝘐𝘕𝘎, so you should get in on it if you’re on the search for great new products. Quite honestly, if I use products on myself and in my kit, then I have to share the goodness with you.
