Elchim’s Guide to Creating Smooth – Yet Full – Styles

Perfectly sleek, smooth locks is a classic and enviable style. But often smooth styles fall flat as the day wears on. With Elchim’s guide, however, you can ensure your style will be full of body throughout the entire day.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Start in the shower with a shampoo and conditioner that introduces extra volume to roots. After towel drying hair, spray roots with an additional root lifter for extra volume, or rub a small amount of mousse through the mid length of hair while still damp. Comb products into hair for even distribution.

Step 2: Using your favorite Elchim blow dryer, power dry your hair until it’s 80-90% dry to save time and prevent damage to delicate follicles. Then part hair into three sections and clip it securely out of the way.

Step 3: Using your Elchim Thermal Brush, start at the nape of your neck and wrap small sections of hair around the brush. Keeping the tension tight, roll the brush out and down while focusing the air flow down the length of hair away from your scalp. Remember: the smaller the barrel is on the brush, the bigger the volume will be in the end.

Step 4: Once you reach the sections of hair at the crown of your head, create loose curls by rolling the hair on the round brush, and heating it up to create the shape. Before unrolling hair again, blast it with cool air to set the style, then gently unwrap hair in a spiral twist.

Step 5: Spray full length of hair with a light setting mist before flipping your head upside down. Gently shake hair before flipping it back up right. Spray again lightly to smooth the shape and introduce extra hold to the style.
