  • Step 1 – Spray hair with G+ moisturizing spray or your favorite daily moisturizing spray.
  • Part hair and finger comb
  • Step  - Gather back of hair in one hand and twist tightly, pulling upwards
  • Step 3 – Grabs large combs. I’m using the Scunci Upzing Clip.
  • Step 4 – Insert comb on one side of hair.
  • Step 5 – Adjust and insert on other side
  • Step 6 – Re-spray front hair then add oil to seal ends
  • Step 7 – Combing through ends of hair, arrange and let them fall freely. Spray hair lightly to hold the style.

There you have it!

Tip: For straight hair, swoop front hair into a side bang or pin up a variety of different styles.
