Let your clients make a statement this Christmas with head-turning texture from Paul Mitchell.

Shampoo and condition the hair using Instant Moisture Daily Shampoo and Treatment. Quickly blow-dry the hair for extra texture. Begin by spraying Hot Off The Press and crimping the whole head with a crimping iron to expand the texture. Apply Gloss Drops throughout the hair. Use a soft bristle dressing brush to brush out the crimped sections.

Create an oval parting at the crown area of the head and secure with an elastic band about two inches from the head shape. Apply Soft Spray and twist the hair to the right, securing the base of the twist to the head with bobby pins. Use Soft Spray to secure.

Take the remaining hair on the top front panel, combine it with the hair in front of the ear and pull to the centre back. Clip to hold and repeat on the opposite side. Secure with an elastic band about two inches from the head.

Place two fingers in the middle of the hair and pull the tail through. Hold the elastic and gently pinch and pull the crimped hair to expand the shape on both sides. Spray with Soft Spray once you have achieved the desired shape.

Pick up the remaining hair at the sides behind the ear and pull together underneath the previous ponytail. Create another ponytail and repeat the ‘pull through’ of the ponytail.

Pinch and pull the crimped hair gently to expand the shape. Detail as necessary and finish with Soft Spray.
