Get the look
Starting with damp hair, apply some volume mousse evenly throughout and rough dry your hair until it's only slightly damp.
When your hair is approximately 80% dry, then continue the blowout, using a round brush to loosely curl the hair in sections to add body and movement to your mane.
Once dried, brush the hair off your face and loosely French braid it from halfway up the back of your head down to the nape of your neck. Secure the hair with a tie.
Mist the loose lengths of your hair with a volumizing hairspray and tease with a fine-tooth comb to add volume.
Gently take off the hair tie and continue braiding all the way to the ends. Once you've tied the braid, gently pull the braid apart at the sides to loosen it.
Carefully pull a few pieces of hair loose at the front to frame your face and soften the overall look, then finish with plenty of strong hold hairspray to complete the look.
