Step 2: Use the Flex Dry Paddle brush and a wrap dry technique to remove excess moisture from the hair.
Step 3: Working from nape to crown use the Tension Shine Blowout brush to curl each section on-base. Allow each section to curl slightly, then remove the brush while twisting the hair to release the curl.
Step 4: Run your fingers through the hair to create loose, tousled curls.
Step 1: Brush through wet hair with the EPIC Professional Deluxe Detangler brush.
Step 2: Remove excess moisture with the Epic Professional Quick Dry brush, using a wrap dry technique.
Step 3: Beginning at the nape and working to the top of the head, use the EPIC Professional Helix Graphite brush to complete the blow dry. Work section by section with substantial tension and avoid creating volume at the base.
Step 4: Create a Mohawk section from temples to crown and clip away. Secure the temple areas below the Mohawk section with bobby pins.
Step 5: Release the Mohawk section, use the EPIC Professional Deluxe Detangler brush to lightly backcomb the hair, then direct the section back to conceal the pins.
