French Braid

Prep your hair with Unite Texturiza Spray throughout the head for grip in your braid. Tease the hair around the crown for more volume if needed. Start your French braid with Unite Smooth and Shine on your fingers. Once you’re finished with the braid secure with a clear elastic. Puff Unite Expanda Dust through the braid and slightly pull at the sides of the braid holding the tail on the end. This will make your braid look much more full! Finish with Unite 7Seconds Glossing Spray and Unite GO365 to hold your style.

Half Up Ponytial

With straight or curled hair, spray Unite Texturiza throughout to give you a little bit of grip. Go from the top of each ear and section out the top 1/2 of your hair. If you’re looking for a lot of volume in the front you can use a teasing brush and tease the top around the crown before sectioning. Secure the pony with either a clear elastic or Invisibobble. Pull small pieces around the face to make it look lived-in and not so perfect! If you kept your hair straight finish off by spraying Unite Texturiza in the pony to make it as voluminous as possible. If you curled your hair, spray Unite Beach Day through the ends to give you that separation and beachy look!

Overnight Hairstyles

Sleepy waves part 1

With damp hair at night apply Unite Blow and Set through the entire head. Part hair in your desired part and French braid your hair from roots to ends. Spray Unite GO365 throughout and go to sleep! Wake up in the morning and put Unite Smooth and Shine throughout the ends to tame any frizz and Unite Beach Day through the entire head and you will be good to go with your slept in waves!

Sleepy waves part 2

If you don’t know how to braid and you don’t have a curling iron here’s a trick for you. With damp hair apply Unite Blow and Set to your entire head. Part your hair in your desired part and tightly twist your hair away from your face and secure in a bun on top of your head with an Invisibobble. When I do this style I do 4 buns; two on the bottom and two on the top to create more movement. When you wake up in the morning you can add Unite Beach Day to your hair and you will have soft movement throughout the hair without heat styling or braiding!
