Creating your waves

we are going to do this a bit differently today. After you add your set of Cliphair extensions divide your hair into vertical sections from your crown to the nape of your neck. You are going to add a very light layer of hairspray and texture spray or cream to the midsection and ends of your hair. Heat up your curling iron and add a little heat protecting hairspray. Hold each section up vertically whilst you curl it. This encourages you roots to gain more volume. Once all your curls are cooled run your fingers through them and shake your head upside down to get some air through it.

Forming your bun

This but may look relaxed but don’t let that fool you. It is created with absolute care and detail. Divide your hair in almost half, use the top of your ears as a guide. Tie the top section out of the way for now. Gather the rest of your hair into a low ponytail. Don’t brush it at this point as you don’t want to make the waves that you created a drop. I actually teased my roots a little before I gathered my hair into the low ponytail but that is totally optional, if you want your whole look seem fuller it is a good idea.

 

Forming your front section

The front section looks undeniably understated and what makes this look a total gem. Divide your front section into thin rows (I always feel like I have more control of my style and intricate work when the rows are a little bit thinner). You will be working with the bottom row first so divide it and clip the rest of your hair away. This front half of your hair is where the texture will be the most noticeable, so make sure that it is the most prominent.

Like your back section, you are going to gently backcomb the roots of your bottom row and add some more texture spray, working it in with your fingers. After you have repeated this process with a few rows of hair gently bring your hair together just on top of your ponytail and fasten it into place with your bobby pins. You want to keep a slightly pinched look in the hair this creates a bit of intricacy in your hair design. Gather the ends of these sections and twist them before you wrap them around the base of your ponytail. Fold the ends of your ponytail up and over (like a donut) and pin it in the back. You can now release the front sections to frame your face. If they are too long to incorporate them into you
