  • After shampooing and conditioning, work our AQUA PRIMER through towel-dried hair to protect against heat damage.  
  • To start adding raw texture and prepare hair for future curls, mist our iconic SALT SPRAY onto your hair. 
  • If you have naturally curly hair, spritz our CURL REVOLUTION MIST onto your tresses, then blow dry with a diffuser until it’s roughly 90% dry.
  • If your hair is naturally straight, blow dry as normal, then use straighteners to curl your hair using the twist and pull method: place an inch-wide section of hair between the tongs, then twist the iron away from your face while gently gliding it down your hair.
  • Repeat all over. 
  • Loosen those luscious curls with your fingers then set them in place with our SKYSCRAPER light to medium hairspray, ready for a night of dancing. 

Fudge Tip: Add sparkling hair jewellery to your locks for the ultimate New Year’s Eve hairstyle.

  • Prep the hair for some serious volume and protect it against heat damage with XPANDER Foam. Work it through your tresses to visibly increase hair density, for hair that looks and feels fuller from root-to-tip.
  • Blow dry hair using a big round brush to achieve full, bouncy locks.
  • When dry, clip the front section of the hair (from the top of the crown) away from the back.  
  • Focusing on the back of the hair, shake our ELEVATE POWDER onto your roots, and tease through with your fingers to create a backcombed effect.  
  • For more volume, backcomb individual sections of hair 
  • When you’ve created that beehive effect, gently brush back the backcombed hair and secure in place with bobby pins.  
  • Unclip the sections at the front, and drape them over the beehive. Secure in place with bobby pins.  
  • Set the look in place with our SKYSCRAPER hairspray.
