These touchable curls embody hair that starts with a healthy foundation of care. Try Living Proof's Restore Perfecting Spray which allows you to work the hair without having to worry about the damage typically caused by heat styling, wet-detangling, or heavy products. It does all of the hard work for you!

Inspired by the pop stars of the '80s, these touchable, healthy, frizz-free curls will make your clients want to dance! Here, Living Proof's Global Creative Director Michael Shaun Corby shows you how to execute this style:

Prep: On clean, damp hair, spray Restore Perfecting Spray from roots to ends. Apply Curl Leave-In Conditioner, followed by Curl Enhancing Mousse.

Step 1: Diffuse hair in all directions, making sure not to touch too much with your hands.

Step 2: Once hair is completely dry, lightly mist with Restore Instant Protection for heat protection. Use a ¼” iron in desired sections to mimic the natural curl pattern.

Step 3: Loosen curls using fingers to create separation.

Step 4: Finish with Restore Instant Protection for added polish & UV protection.
