  1. On Second Day Hair, apply dry shampoo to roots then blow dry with the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i to create a thick, full texture.

  2. Run fingers through hair, then divide hair into 1” sections.

  3. Place the first section of hair under the T3 BodyWaver clamp (with clamp remaining open) as close to the root as possible.

  4. Holding iron horizontally, wrap hair neatly around barrel away from face with other hand. Clamp and hold for 3-5 seconds, then release. Very gently unwind hair off barrel. Repeat until all sections have been styled.

  5. Once the waves have fully cooled, use a paddle brush or fingers to create a tousled look. For extra texture and volume, finish with a small amount of dry shampoo on the ends.
