Riawna Capri Uses UNITE for Julianne Hough Step-by-Step

Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon used UNITE to create Julianne Hough's look for the 2015 American Music Awards.

Start with dry straight hair. Create a deep angled part, in the shape of a V. The key is to brush that piece forward and smooth it down with UNITE TRICKY Spray Wax to keep the part clean of fly aways. Next, do the same thing by creating another deep V, brush that piece forward, and smooth down with UNITE TRICKY Spray wax. Continue to do the same until you have created the size you want. 

Next tie all the hair from behind your ear into a ponytail, that way you don't mess up the parting. Then take each side and add it by rubberbanding it to the pony very carefully. The trick is, you want to make sure to have all the hair brushed forward to disguise any scalp lines. This is the key to NOT having it look like the 90s zig zag part.
