How to style it

Step 1

Starting with clean, damp hair, spritz Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray all over. Make sure you cover the hair from roots to ends to prevent heat damage.

Step 2

Rough dry your hair, using your hands instead of a brush. This will create a slightly mussed, natural looking texture.

Step 3

When the hair is almost dry, twist a section of hair and finish drying it in that position. Repeat at random intervals around your head.

Step 4

Once dried, don't brush your hair. Simply use your hands to part it in the middle or slightly off center, then gather it at the back.

Step 5

Before creating the knot, gently pull a couple of pieces loose at the front. Then, tie your hair into a low pony an inch or so above the nape of your neck.

Step 6

Twist and pin pieces of the pony to the back of your head to form a textured, slightly messy knot.

Step 7

When all your hair is up, gently tease a few small wispy pieces of hair loose around it, then complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
