1. Apply GKhair Leave-In Cream. Set hair with 1½-inch barrel iron. Then manipulate curls into desired wave pattern, gently pull hair away from face, place all hair into hand and gently twist once to keep hair loose.

2. Form hair using GKhair’s Light-Hold Hairspray. The spray allows you manipulate hair and set the style in place.

3. Take a small elastic band at the bottom of the hair while maintaining a soft twist in hand. Once elastic is secured, hold a few strands in the center of the banded hair and gently push the rest towards the scalp.

4. Place a few bobby pins in to secure the hair.
