SMOOTH PROFILE

It’s All In The Technique

smooth profile

This silky smooth style profile relies on methodical styling with a blow dryer and careful maneuvering with a flat iron. Here thick, freshly shampooed tresses were first primed with hair serum. Then, starting from the nape, hair was sectioned off and blown-dry using a large paddle brush. This step was repeated until hair is completely dry. Using a rattail comb, create a center part. Taking small sections, lightly spritz the hair with a heat protectant spray then use a flat iron to straighten out strands. Repeat this process throughout the entire hair.
