To get the look, David prepped Octavia’s freshly washed hair with Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse, he blew it dry with a round brush for a full and bouncy look. Using Dove Style+Care Smooth & Shine Heat Protection Spray, he wrapped and curled small sections throughout her hair with a 1 ¼” curling iron. The key he said is to curl away from the face. “[This] allows for an open and effortless wave – you can just run your hands through and it bounces right back.”

He let her hair cool set, spraying with Dove Style+Care Compressed Micro Mist Flexible Hold Hairspray before using his hands to break up the curls. To add even more volume, he flipped her head upside down and used Dove Care Between Washes Invisible Dry Shampoo.
