Look One: Soft, natural movement
label.m Blow Out Spray and Volume Foam was applied from root to mid lengths to prep the hair for heat, then blow-dried through. A clean centre part was drawn, then using a flat iron, we created an S-Bend from root to tip for a fresh, natural feel. The look was then finished with label.m Weightless Hairspray.
Look Two: Polished Low Ponytail / Sleeked back
For look two, we added label.m Soft Wax through the root area to create a subtle wet-look finish. Hair was then combed back into a low ponytail / or to the nape of the neck for short hair. The polished finish was then enhanced with label.m Fashion Edition Wax Spray applied to the root area however leaving the natural texture from look one through the ends.
