“Carry your centre part from your forehead down to the nape of your neck and pull the hair over your shoulders – this way you can blow dry your hair from the front and will find it easier to manage your brush and control the air flow of your hairdryer for a smoother finish” – Orlando Pita, TRESemmé New York Fashion Week Ambassador.

STEP 1: Start with a smoothing shampoo, that contains keratin, followed by a smoothing conditioner for a super smooth starting base.

STEP 2: Apply a volumising hair product from root to tip, applying in small sections, and using your fingers to work in the product.

STEP 3: Create a centre part and blow dry in small sections with a round bristle brush, working from the nape of the neck up to the forehead – make sure you angle the air from the blow dryer in the opposite direction towards your hair for a smooth finish.

STEP 4: After you finish each section curl the hair around your fingers and pin in place with a bobby pin. Allow all the sections to cool completely before releasing.

STEP 5: Spray a soft bristle brush with the TRESemmé Firm Hold Hairspray and brush through your hair to tame any flyaways. Tuck your hair behind your ears and allow the hair to fall behind your shoulders.
