    How To Style:

    1. Blow dry your entire head of hair to one side. Use a paddle brush or a medium-sized round brush to create a smooth finish.
    2. When hair is completely dry, go in with a flat iron to detail your strands and really make them shine.
    3. Use a soft hair lotion to add some polish and define your layers. Rub the product on your fingers and palms and then through your entire head of hair.
    4. Use your fingers to arrange your bangs the way you want them to lay.

    Recommended Products:

    Redken Move Ability is a hair cream that helps define layers. It is great for thicker hair types.

    1. Apply a styling cream throughout damp hair and scrunch strands with your hands.
    2. Using a diffuser attachment, blow dry until 100% dry.
