How to: Nina Ricci’s soft volume

Start by prepping your hair using a heat protectant spray. Apply this from root to tip to protect your hair from the heat of the blow dryer. For the Nina Ricci show Redken pillow proof blowdry primer was used.
Next, create a clean center part. Then to get the straight and frizz free hair needed for this look, apply blow dry lotion like Redken satinwear 02.

Blow dry your hair straight with the help of a natural bristle brush.
Once you’ve done drying your hair, take the top section or the crown of your hair and wrap it around a pin curl. Once it has cooled, you can take it out.

If you want more volume on the top of your head, you can backcomb it then rake the ends of you hair with your fingers for a natural finish.
