1. Gently mist ROOTFUL 06 Root Lifting Spray onto the hair and finger dry creating a natural workable texture.

2. Spray WIND BLOWN 05 Dry Finishing Spray through hair and blow-dry. Create a loose centre part and create two side sections, giving you 3 sections in total… left-side + right-side + back.

3. Tie the back section into a pony tail at the crown of the head using your hands to give the base natural movement. Then arrange the front two sections back into the same pony.

4. Pull out the bottom of the pony near the nape to create subtle movement.

5. Wrap the ponytail hair in a long hair net and pin up into a chignon.

6. Sprinkle POWDER GRIP 03 Mattifying Powder into the hair framing the face and pull out a few fly-aways.
