Antonina Ilchenko - Hairstylist & Global Styling Educator:

“I would like to show you a closer look at a styling done in 10-15 minutes on short, dry hair. Iron, temperature 190 degrees Celsius, I work very quickly, I apply large strands over the entire head, curling in different directions. Next, I treat all the hair from bottom to top with styling (texturizing spray) and lightly comb it with large teeth. I comb the bangs area and lay it on its side, fixing it with the same texturizing spray 💁🏻‍♀️”
