Damage, Other,
It’s time to shine with a fresh twist on red-carpet ready hair. Step out in true star style without damaged hair concerns stealing the limelight.This season’s on-trend twisted side-sweep is the perfect choice for your hair type. The twists and bobby pins do the work for you, so you don’t need to risk further damage with the use of high-heat styling tools. Here’s how to go for glam without waking up with post-party damage.

Step One

A special event or big night out is no time to force your hair to be something it’s not. Use Full Repair® Style Revival Heat-Activated Styling Spray on wet or towel dried hair to help protect against breakage from high-heat styling and blow-dry hair as usual. Once dry, make a dramatic side part. Then pull forward two sections of hair—one on each side of your face. Let this hair rest over your ears as you move on to Step Two.

Step Two

Sweep the remaining hair at the back of your head over the shoulder of your choice. Lightly twist and use bobby pins to secure your hair at the nape of your neck. Think of it as a side ponytail without elastic tying it in place. Use bobby pins in the same colour as your hair and don’t worry about making it perfect. This look is simple, elegant and best of all, forgiving — so you never have to force it and risk further damage.

Step Three

Now comes the fun part — twisting! Take 2-inch sections of the remaining hair hanging over your ears. Twist this hair in sections and pin the twists over to the side, mixing it in with the rest of your hair. Repeat this step until all hair is securely in place and you’ve achieved your star-inspired look. Now you’re ready for your close-up with hair that looks smooth and shiny.
