Mark Will:
. Cut the model's hair into shape.
. To prepare the hair, he will wash the hair with a shampoo and conditioner duo, either be Volumising or De-frizz and Mark will tell us what he has used and why.
. Mark will blow-dry the hair smooth using Straightening Balm which he'll run through the hair and will also spray with Root Volumising Mist to generate lift and body as he is blow drying.  He'll use a Thermo Ceramic Hairdryer and a round barrelled brush.
. When the hair is 90% dry, he will create extra lift at the crown area by applying three to four Velcro rollers, spraying each section with Finishing Spray for hold.
. The hair will then be French-polished by gently skimming with Thermo Ceramic Straighteners and Heat Protection Spray to prevent damage.
. Mark will let down the rollers and style the hair into place.
. To finish he will use De-frizz Shine Serum and Ultimate Gloss Mist.
