Get the Jessica Biel Look:

STEP 1: The hair was freshly washed with ECRU New York SEA Clean Shampoo.

STEP 2: Add ECRU New York Volumizing silk mist only to the top crown and length of hair, not in top front.

STEP 3: Section a sharp 3 inches long middle part, gently brush the hair to the sides while drying it downward with a flat small paddle brush, make sure it stays flat and close to the scalp all the way to the ears, no volume whatsoever in the whole front. Clip in place to maintain flat shape and move to top crown area.

STEP 4: Using a Mid-Size Boar bristle Natural round brush start at the top crown and section a 2 inches wide section, wrap the section around the brush and start to blow dry hot & slow air flow, release and spray the section with ECRU New York Sunlight Styling spray.

STEP 5: Wrap the section around 2 fingers in a wide pin curl type, then clip the section firm close to scalp. Continue the same exact way all around the head, about 8 to 10 sections let it set for 20 minutes or use a hair drier diffuser to dry heat the hair while it set for 10 min, let it cool down for 5 min.

STEP 6: Release the pin curls gently and using a fan brush and brush the hair downward combining it with the middle part section.

STEP 7: At this point take Aria Beauty Infrared Flat Iron and gently pass the iron ONLY around the back and sides 3 inches from the scalp Not to Remove the volume and 3 inches from the ends to keep roundness at the bottom.

STEP 8: Do not pass the iron in the front near face, keep the soft waves that were created by the pin curls set around the face only.

STEP 9: Now brush once more gently all around then use ECRU Texture Balm Silk texturizing balm only in the middle part to enhance the shine. Finalize with a light hold Hair Spray.

TIP* Make sure that the front part stays flat only from hair line down to ears and from top crown on down the rest must maintain a flowing soft volume.
