The Fiercest ‘Fro

We’ve got to give it to new music star Elle Varner for serving as the inspiration for a mane move we’re currently loving: the full-blown ‘Fro! With the recent release of her music single “Refill” (and its hot music video) we couldn’t take our eyes off Elle’s stunning spirals.

Here, we’re spotlighting Elle flaunting a high-profile upsweep on her cool curls. Loving the look? Create your own version of the style with these steps:

STEP 1:  Use a boar-bristle brush to smooth hairline, sides and nape.

STEP 2: Apply an edge control product where needed to keep things sleek. Pull lengths taut and upward to shape the silhouette. Hint: Work in sections and use hairpins to secure the hair at the rear crown.

STEP 3: Leave remaining lengths free and pick curls up and out to encourage volume. Short on time? After applying the control pomade along the perimeter of your style, slip on a flexible headband to shape and secure the silhouette!
