Out There With Ruth: The Power of Finishing

This week Ruth demonstrates the power of finishing by styling one model with naturally curly hair three different ways.  

  1. Diffusing to create a different shape and define the curls
  2.  Back off the face for a clean look
  3.  Blown straight with a Denman Brush for smoothness and a round brush for a nice finish on the ends.  

Change the finish, change the look!
