  1. Prep hair with Soft Curls and power-dry. Create a radial parting and clip away the front. Starting in the back of the head, create a horizontal section two inches above the nape.
  2. Wrap hair away from the face with a 1 inch curling iron. Pull on ends of the curl for an uneven result.
  3. Spray Infinium 3 for shape memory and hold.
  4. Add a headband over the top of the hair. With a hairpin, pick up hair strands and wrap over the band.
  5. Finish with Beach Waves and Next Day Hair.
