How To! Slept in Pompadour Color + Style by Karen Cunningham

KMS National Artistic Team Member, Karen Cunningham (@_karen_cunninghamhair), created a loose, slept in and undone pompadour look with a modern twist. Learn HOW TO!

Step 1: First, apply 40ml Topchic 6% (20vol) lotion + 40ml Elumenated Naturals 7N@BP onto roots
Step 2: Then, apply 35ml SilkLift 9% (20vol) lotion+ 1 scoop SilkLift High Performance Lightener for Balayage
Step 3: After, apply 60ml Colorance lotion + 25ml 10BG + 5ml 10BS for the overlay

Step 1: Start by prepping hair with KMS HAIRPLAY Sea Salt Spray and rough dry.
Step 2: Next, set back and side sections of hair with KMS THERMASHAPE Hot Flex Spray. Following, use a flat wave technique starting at top sections of hair using a VARIS 1” Curler. For the vertical sections, set hair on each side starting at the top of the head, directed towards the middle.
Step 3: After, lightly brush through to release set. Then, add KMS HAIRPLAY Liquid Dust to hands, emulsify into a tacky texture and apply to roots for instant volume.
Step 4: Following, brush hair around the parietal ridge back and secure with a bobby pin in the back.
Step 5: Finally, set the style with KMS HAIRSTAY Firm Finishing Hairspray.
