To style, use a 1” curling iron, grabbing vertical sections of varying size. Alternate the direction of the curl and left the ends out. Then finish the style with a simple fishtail braid. Apply Oway Thermal Stress Protector, Oway Sea Salt Spray, Oway Flux Potion, and a little Oway Glossy Nectar through the ends.

We love these messy waves for that fresh off the boat look. With the use of just a few products, you can create this style to add some texture to your client’s balayage.
For the color, do a balayage/foil combo using O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener with O&M CØR.color 30 vol Activator and O&M CØR.color 40 vol Activator. Tone with O&M (25g O&M CØR.color 9.6 Very Light Violet Blonde + 10g O&M CØR.color 10.16 Lightest Ash Violet Blonde+70g O&M CØR.color 5 vol Activator). For styling, use the Oway Volumizing Root Spray at the root and Oway Flux Potion throughout. After the blowdry, flat iron waves and spray with Oway Sea Salt Spray for texture.

Effortless, yet elegant. You can add some volume to your client’s hair while also maintaining a natural style. Try out this process to achieve this loose wave look.
Use O&M Rootalicious Root Lift Spray at the roots and a bit through the mid lengths. Then, O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum through the ends. Blow dry with a round brush. Then working in sections, start at the nape and curl with a 1.25” curling iron. Take vertical sections within the section and curl one to two inches away from the root and leave out one to two inches of the ends. Then pull the ends straight. Alternate the direction of each curl. The sections around the face do away from the face. When it’s all finished lightly comb it out with fingers and scrunch with O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Texture Spray to get a little more volume. Then finish the look with the O&M Original Queenie hairspray.
