2. Apply Moroccanoil Root Boost throughout the entire head to create a foundation for volume and texture. Then use a comb to create a deep side part. Rough dry with hands.

3. Next, section by section, blow dry hair using Moroccanoil’s 35mm Boar Bristle Round Brush for a soft and smooth finish.

4. Once the hair is fully dry, section off the hair at the top of the head and set in Velcro rollers.

5. Alternating between 1”and 1 ½” curling irons, wrap 1” sections of hair around the barrels—leaving the ends straight—to create a modern, natural wave.

6. Once completed, I removed the Velcro rollers and use the Moroccanoil Classic Boar Bristle Brush to smooth hair into place and sweep the hair across the forehead.
