CarboSilk® Comb, Style-up™ Combo Teasing Brush & Ceramic+ion™ Thermal Brush

Section hair & tease all around back of crown with a CarboSilk Comb to create height & volume. This is the foundation for bump at back of updo.

Use the rat tail of the Style-up Combo teasing brush to lift & gather hair.

Take some hair sections in front, pull to back & anchor hair with 2 bobby pins. Always double anchor crossing pins over, one pin in one direction & other in opposite direction. Repeat on other side.

Working down towards nape, continue to gather sections on each side & secure at the back with bobby pins. Lock these into pins already in the hair. Use 2 pins for each sections to hold hair firmly in place.

Take remaining hair at nape, twist, & tuck in ends. Pin it at back with rest of the hair. Lock the new pins into pins already in the hair. Use enough pins to firmly secure updo in place.

Create soft curls to frame face by rolling loose hair in front with small Ceramic+ion Thermal brush & blowdryer with nozzle. Use hairspray to lock in shape.
