Each step is listed with the professional tools and products that George used underneath.
Wash hair and leave wet. To prep, George sprays Hella's hair with a detangling spray and combs through.
Now, George puts about a golf ball sized amount of volumizing mousse in his hand and combs through the hair, focusing on the roots, heading to the crown. For the ends, George combs a bit of straightening serum into her hair, to get rid of frizz.
Using a Rake Comb, George separates the front hairline section from the rest of Hella's hair and combs it flat onto her face.
George turns the blowdryer on at a high heat and gives the hair a loose blow dry lifting at the roots for body. Blow dry the front section, parted separately flat onto the face. Keep drying until 80 to 90 percent dry.
Choose a side and start by pinning the top layers of your hair on top of your head, so you can straighten the bottom layer upwards.
George uses a round brush and measures a section of your hair that’s about as wide as the bristled section of the brush. Place the brush under that section of hair, close to the roots and coil the hair around the bristles.
Turn the dryer on and give a quick puff to the roots from underneath. Now, holding the dryer’s nozzle right on the brush, move the dryer and brush together from roots until you reach the tips. When you reach the ends curl the brush giving them extra attention by going over them more than once, removing frizz and curling them slightly under.
Use the same principle to straighten the hair at the back of the head, but when styling yourself, pull the brush and dryer toward the front, as it’s hard to reach otherwise.
Keep releasing more hair from the top and straightening. Now dry the other side, pinning the excess hair to the opposite side of your head.
When you’re left with just the hair on the top of your head to straighten, start by straightening the front section out toward the mirror in front of you. The very front section should be flat to the forehead to smooth out any growth patterns around the hairline. Next, with the very front section, flatten the two sides over the temple areas. You might want to use a hair iron to get the frizzy areas around the temples.
Section by section, add more hair from the center of your head and pull forward toward the mirror. It should all go down in one direction with no indication of where it will be parted.
George smoothes a few drops of hair oil on the hair, especially on the tips, for shine, moisture and to get rid of frizz.
When finally through with straightening all the hair, for added volume and movement, give it a quick loose blow dry all over.
Use your fingers to place the hair where you want it and in the desired parting.
Hella has natural and yet very put-together straight hair for the day or a night out.
