Apply a dollop of a foaming mousse to your wet hair. Before blowing hair dry, add a pea-sized amount of a heat protectant spray to your strands.
Dry hair with a hair dryer set on medium heat. Starting at the crown, lift the roots with a bristle brush and dry a 3-inch to 4-inch section of hair.
Wrap a 2-inch section of hair around a ghd scarlet hair styler to create a finger wave curl.Move the styler down your hair to create waves from the roots of the hair to the tips.
For larger waves wrap a 3 to 4-inch section of hair around the ghd styler. Curl the ends of your hair with large Velcro rollers. Let the rollers remain in your hair for 30 minutes.
Release the rollers from the ends of your hair. Shake your hair using a side-to-side motion to let the waves fall down naturally. Add gloss to your hair with a mist of shine-inducing spray.
