1/2 Up, 1/2 Down with Beach Waves

Tools: Bobby pins, 1 1/2" curling iron, smoothing brush.

Step 1: Prep dry or wet hair with Aquage Uplifting Foam or Aveda Confixer from roots to ends on entire head and blow dry.
Step 2: Start on the sides of the head taking vertical sections. Spray each section with Aveda Volumizing Tonic or Aquage Working Spray. Switch the direction of each curl as well as alternate medium and large barrel curling irons. Tip: Let hair fall but don't brush until it's all cool.
Step 3: Choose how large you want your pomp to be on top and section that hair out. Lightly backcomb to create volume. Tip: If you have trouble getting volume you can spray on Kevin Murphy Hair Powder.
Step 4: Pull back and smooth out the top with a smoothing brush or boar bristle brush. Spray and smooth with Aquage Finishing Spray or Aveda Control Force. You may need to repeat the spray and smooth part a couple of times to achieve your desired smoothness.
Step 5: Use decorative clips to pin the pomp into place. Tip: Having decorative pins allow you to have them showing and not worrying about trying to hide them. Make sure you criss-cross the pins so they are as secure as possible.
Step 6: Spray with a finishing spray and comb out either with a smoothing brush or your fingers.
