Hightower Victory Roll Before

For best results, texturize your hair with the Sam Villa Textur® Iron to create volume and soft, moldable texture making your hair easier to work with. To texturize your hair, take horizontal sections and spray a minimum of 6-8" away with Redken quick tease 15 backcombing finishing spray to protect the hair from heat and for maximum iron results. Use the Sam Villa Textur® Texturizing Iron tapping the plates down the length of your hair to texturize the entire head.

Hightower Victory Roll Step 1

Create a part where you normally wear it using your Sam Villa Detangling Comb. Next, gather the sides and back of your hair into a slightly off-center ponytail. Use your Sam Villa Styling Brush to smooth out your hair into a nice tight ponytail.

Hightower Victory Roll Step 2

Pinch the ponytail with your left hand and use your right hand to roll the length diagonally in (almost toward your right ear) to create a French twist in seconds.
