1. Apply Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer Spray or another thermal protectant to towel-dried hair, followed by DESIGNLINE Root Boost Volumizing Foam for volume and hold.

2. Blow dry using a large barrel brush, focusing on lifting the hair at the roots up and away.

3. Braid 4-5 sections of dry hair. They can be loose, messy braids that are randomly placed around your head, just make sure to braid all your hair.

4. Run a flat iron over each braid.

5. Unwrap the braids and gently shake them out with your fingers.

6. Rub a small amount of molding paste between your palms and then run them through your hair, scrunching the ends to give some hold to the perfectly imperfect waves. Finish with a medium hold hairspray like DESIGNLINE Hold Everything Spray and a light spritz of DESIGNLINE Shine Mist or a similar shine-infusing spray like Kenra Artformation Spray 18.
