  4. Apply a small drop of Blowout Smoothing Balm to fingertips and smooth the front section to bring back to a low ponytail below the occipital bone under the clipped section. Drop the clipped-up section and use Blowout Finishing Spray to create soft hold to your front section.

  5. Using a 1 ¼” curling wand, take vertical sections the same width as your iron. Curl each section back away from the face. Let hair cool before final step.

Pro Tips:

For extra smoothing and shine, add another drop or two of Blowout Smoothing Balm to your fingertips and smooth through the ends after brushing. For extra glamour add a clip or hair piece just behind the ear.
