Step 1 / On freshly washed hair, begin by working a small amount of the Beyond the Zone Keep It Together Braid Cream from the mid-shaft to the ends of the hair. This will help control flyaways and frizz to create a smooth and touchable style.

Step 2 / Next blow dry the hair with the Ion Whisper Quiet Lite Blow dryer. Use a paddle brush to follow the dryer down small sections to help create an even smoother style.

Step 3 / Section the hair above the ears, clipping off the top portion. Pick up the Ion Titanium Platinum Pro Curling Iron and divide off a 1” section of hair. Curl this section away from the face by clamping it in the middle, rolling it up to the roots, holding for 5 seconds, then dropping the iron to the ends, wrapping it up a second time and holding it for 5-8 seconds before releasing the section.

Step 4 / Repeat the precious step curling all the hair from this bottom layer, alternating the direction of the curl either towards the face or away from the face.

Step 5 / Use the Ion Titanium Pro Multi-Styler to go back and smooth down any wavy pieces around the hairline.

Step 1 / With a part on the right side pick up a small section near the part on the left side.
Step 2 / Divide this section into three equal pieces for the braid.
Step 3 / Begin a french braid by crossing the side strands over the middle.
Step 4 / Start incorporating hair into both sides of the braid until it reaches the temple.
Step 5 / Now stop adding in hair to the top of the braid and continue bringing in hair to the bottom until it reaches the left ear.
Step 6 / Then braid the rest of the section to the bottom in a regular braid.
Step 7 / Gently pull on the edges to loosen the braid and wrap it around the back of the head, securing it with 1-2 bobby pins.
Step 8 / Now repeat the same steps on the the right side, creating a second french braid, adding in hair until it reaches the left ear and braiding the section to the end in a regular braid.
Step 9 / Wrap the braid underneath the first one and pin it in place with 1-2 bobby pins.
Step 10 / Gently loosen the bottom of the second braid to make it a little fuller as the last step.
