  3. Clean eye shadow brush

Step 2

Set hair on a large curling iron holding horizontally so hair falls into waves instead of curls.

Step 3

Once cooled, smooth over with a brush and a working hairspray like SESSION.SPRAY to add hold and shine. You want to concentrate SESSION.SPRAY wherever you want the foil to stick. Determine where you would like to add your foiling.  It looks amazing along the part line or in the hair is tucked behind your ear around the hairline is another option.

Step 4
