Step 1:  Spray the hair with a thermal heat protectant before you begin to use any hot tools.

Step 2:  Start by wrapping the hair half way up the strands with a 1″curling iron and work down to the ends-this creates big, soft, sexy waves and it give your hair lots of added dimension.

Step 3:  When finished curling, take a small section of  hair (1″or less) at the top right side of the head and braid. Secure the braid with a clear elastic band.

Step 4:  Weave the braid in and out of the curled hair, securing it with a bobby pin underneath the hair so it is hidden. There are no specifics in how you weave your braids though your curls, so play with it to find the look you like.

Step 5:  Repeat step 3 on the left side of the head followed with step 4. Mist with a finishing spray, to lock in the style. And, try a spritz of a shine spray for some extra added glamour!
