Hollywood curls

Step 1: Using your brow as a guide, make a diagonal parting to just in front of the crown.
Step 2: Take a triangular section half way up the parting and comb across to the top of the brow of the opposite eye – this is your fringe section.
Step 3: Working in sections, but keeping the fringe separate, take the hair and wrap around your tongs. When you have done the whole of your hair then do your fringe but bringing the hair forward as you go.
Step 4: When all the hair is done, brush through and add serum to sweep the hair over the face then set with hairspray.

Low ponytail
Step 1: Make a middle parting and blow dry your hair in sections using the Diamond Shine Pro Salon Blow Dryer and large round brush to add volume. Start with the top section of your hair and when dry, leave in rollers to cool as you dry the rest of the hair.
Step 2: When all the hair is dry, take out the rollers and back comb the top section of the hair to create added volume.
Step 3: Gather the hair into the nape of your neck and secure with a hairband.
Step 4: Smooth some serum down the ponytail and fix with hairspray to keep in place.


Bouncy waves
Step 1: Create an off balance centre parting and take sections starting at the face working backwards.
Step 2: Take each section, comb through and wrap around your wand to about ear level.
Step 3: Keep the wand horizontal at all times as this will give the look more width when waving.
Step 4: Leave the waves you have created loose in order to cool down.
Step 5: Finger through and fix with hairspray.
