By Chandler Rollins | 04/22/2014 12:07:00 PM


Dress up and party down with Paul Mitchell’s Big Night Out ­ finishes. True Romance, one of four exclusive party looks features a half-up half-down style.


1. Begin by prepping damp hair with Paul Mitchell's Sculpting Foam and Extra-Body Daily Boost. Use the Neuro Dryer and the diffuser attachment to dry hair completely.  
2. Once hair is dry, begin sectioning from the top of the head to just behind the ear on the right side. Clip away.  
3. Repeat on the left side, but make this section slightly thicker. Clip away.  
4. Use the Neuro Smooth and the 413 Sculpting Brush to smooth hair from scalp to halfway down the shaft on the two side sections.  
5. Gather and brush side sections into a ponytail on the side of the head. Use Stay Strong to secure the ponytail and any loose strands.  
6. Take the ponytail, tie a loose knot and pin into place. Pull pieces out of the knot to detail as desired.  
7. Spray Stay Strong to secure the style and to expand the curls below.
