    Apply firm-hold mousse, and finger-comb it through your hair. Dispense more product, and massage it into your roots and scalp.

  4. Braid your hair

    Create one tight braid on each side of your head. Secure the ends with elastic hair bands.

  5. Mist your hair with salt spray

    Mist your hair with salt spray, and apply extra product to the lower half of your braids.

  6. Leave the braids in overnight

    Sleep with your hair braided.

    The following morning, remove the elastic hair bands, and separate the braids with your fingers.

  8. Set the waves with hairspray

    Lift the hair on the crown of your head, and spray the roots with volumizing spray. Then mist the lower half of your hair with a final coat of firm-hold hairspray.
