·         First, start with the natural hair texture and smooth Smooth ‘N Shine Instant Edge Smoothing Pomade throughout the hair and hairline for a sleek silhouette

·         Create a ponytail at the crown, leaving the very top portion out and loose

·         Next, create a double strand twist from the left to right of the crown

·         With the rest of the loose hair, give it an under twist and repeat three times in a regal crown style

·         Complete the look with Smooth ‘N Shine Spray-On Polisher for a red carpet finish

·         To start, work Smooth 'N Shine Polishing Instant Repair Hair Polisher throughout the hair to create an intense, healthy shine

·         Next, take small sections of the hair starting at the nape and curl with ¾ sized iron. Make sure to wrap each section in the same direction

·         Once the entire head is curled, establish a  part on the left side

·         After the curl has set, brush the hair out to create synchronized waves

·         Tuck the left side behind the ear and finish with off with Smooth ‘N Shine Spray-On Polisher

·         Next , flat iron the fringe around the face over the left eye

·         Take random chunks of hair and create bends in various directions toward the ends of the hair

·         Once set, shake out the hair and spray with Smooth ‘N Shine Spray-On Polisher for a dazzling finish.
