Materials
- Heat protectant spray
- Brush or comb with tail
- Aligator hair clips
- Flat iron
- Hair oil
Instructions
1. Apply heat protectant spray to hair.
2. Part hair down the middle using the tail of a brush or a comb.
3. Clip hair to the right of the part out of the way using an alligator clip.
4. Clip the upper section of hair to the left of the part out of the way using another alligator clip, leaving only the bottom layer loose.
5. Clamp the flat iron over a small section of loose hair at the front of your face. Move the flat iron down the hair slowly, all the way to the ends.
6. Softly curve the flat iron when close to the ends of the hair. This will cause the ends to curve slightly inwards, giving a bevelled appearance.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 on all remaining hair, working from the bottom layers to the top layers on the left side and repeating the same process on the right side of your head.
8. Add oil to the palm of your hand and rub your hands together. Gently work your hands through the ends of your hair to distribute the oil. This will give the hair added shine.
