Hollywood Old School Glamour
Step 1: Using your brow as a guide, make a diagonal parting to just in front of the crown.
Step 2: Take a triangular section half way up the parting and comb across to the top of the brow of the opposite eye – this is your fringe section.
Step 3: Apply Nicky Clarke Classic Compact Rollers. For the front fringe section: bring hair out at 90° from the forehead and wrap the hair around the roller ensuring its flat, then keep on wrapping to the ends. Use the clips to hold in place. Leave in for at least 15 minutes.
Step 4: Gently remove the rollers, mist with hairspray and follow with a gentle comb through. For a different look, clip your fringe back a la Lily Collins.
Lovely Low Ponytails
Step 1: Create a middle or side parting and blow dry your hair in sections using the SuperShine Dryer and large round brush to add volume.
Step 2: When all the hair is dry, take out the rollers and back comb the top section of the hair to create added volume.
Step 3: Gather the hair into the nape of your neck and secure with a hairband.
Step 4: Smooth some serum down the ponytail and fix with hairspray to keep in place.
Step 1: Create an off balance centre parting and create sections of hair – starting at the face and working backwards.
Step 2: Take each section, comb through and wrap around the Nicky Clarke SuperShine Tong to ear level.
Step 3: Keep the wand horizontal at all times as this will give the look more width when waving.
Step 4: Leave the waves you have created loose in order to cool down.
Step 5: Run your fingers through and fix with hairspray.
