Apply Sculpture Lotion
Apply a sculpture lotion to the palm of your hand and then smooth evenly through your hair.
Sculpture lotion can be used as an alternative to mousse for messy hair, as a styling aid when blow-drying for volume, and for a stronger hold in fine limp hair.
Add Your Part
Use the corner of your comb and stand in front of a mirror to find the center of your left eye, now slowly drag your comb straight until you reach your hairline carry on dragging the comb back to create an even left part.
Use a side part if you want to create the illusion of width for a longer face shape.
Section By Section Styling
The best way to style hair is to work in sections, it is faster and easier. Comb hair and place up into four equal sections starting from ear to ear, create 2 sections in the front and two sections in the back.
Hairstyle tip Use A Small Radial Brush A small radial brush is used on shorter hair types to add more body or in longer hair types to create curl. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
Use A Blow-dryer To Kick Out The Back
Start at the back/nape of your hair, placing your brush on the top section and blow-dry your hair down, start from your roots using tension as you go. Place your blow-dryer underneath your hair continuing to blow-dry your ends out. Follow your brush with your blow-dryer in an outwards direction. For fuller flicks hold your ends out and then roll them up into your brush and apply the heat longer.
Use A Blow-dryer To Kick Out The Sides
Blow-dry your sides by taking out the first sections from your front and then secure the rest of your hair up using a clip. Placing your brush on top of the first section and start from your roots, blow-dry down again using tension as you go. Place your blow-dryer underneath your hair continuing to blow-dry the ends out until all of your hair has been dried.
Blow-dry The Top Under
Taking up a section of hair no wider than the diameter of your brush and placing your brush under and at the roots of your section with your blow-dryer above, drag your brush up through you mid-lengths and your ends following with your blow-dryer and pull your hair gently to the left. Repeat this until your top hair is completely dry.
Blow-dry The Top Under
Take a section of your hair no wider than the diameter of your brush. Place your brush under and at the roots of your section. Then with your blow-dryer above, drag the brush up through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair following with your blow-dryer and pulling the hair to the right. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.
Blow-dry Your Bangs Forward To The Right
To blow-dry bangs to the side, section hair up and clip hair back leaving only your bangs out. Blow drying will be more effective if your bangs are damp. Take your brush and place underneath your hair blow-drying from your roots and add tension as you do. Slowly pull the section down to your ends and continuing until bangs are dry.
Blow-dry The Crown
For your crown area blow-dry the top crown sections by taking a section of your hair no bigger than the diameter of your brush blow-drying your hair by placing your styling brush beneath the section of hair.
Keep your blow-dryer in front of your brush following your brush in an upwards direction at your roots and an outwards position at your ends to add great volume and softness.
Finish Using Styling Wax
Wax The Back Of Your Hair Out
Use wax and your fingers and take the mid-lengths of your hair and drag out and upwards to achieve a full and messy result.
Style Your Sides Out
To create sides that kick out apply a small amount of styling wax to your fingertips and then work on your ends pinching ends and dragging your hair in an out and upwards motion.
Lift Your Roots
To add more lift at your roots apply hard wax to fingertips and then rub wax into your roots as you lift strands to create soft volume. To create a soft texture in bangs apply a small amount of wax to fingertips and then drag through your bangs pinching at the ends.

Optional Styling Steps
Apply A Smoothing Shine
If your hair needs more shine apply a tiny bit of a smoothing shine to palms and then lightly go over your mid-lengths.
Be careful not to apply smoothing serum to your roots or large amounts anywhere as a smoothing shine can be very heavy on fine hair making it look oily and heavy.
When you apply any styling or finishing products to fine hair, use the golden rule of less can be more.
