    Step 1: Prep 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 to texturize the entire head of hair
    • After you have texturized the hair, brush through thoroughly with the Sam Villa Styling Brush to smooth the hair
    • Once this is completed you will be able to create amazing looks for a minimum of 4 days!


    • Purchase a quality shower cap - doing so will allow you the experience of a full shower and keeps your texture set intact
    • Use a dry shampoo such as Redken Powder Refresh 01 to deodorize your hair and remove excess oils
    • You can create amazing new looks every day with three times the volume and minimal styling time -- The Sam Villa Textur® Texturizing Iron is a must have if you are a hair fashionista (or even if you are hair-imparied)

    Step 2: Create Your Part

    • Set in your part where you naturally wear it
    • Use a Sam Villa Detangling Comb to separate the sides by combing hair off the face and letting it naturally split - this approach will give you a straight part every time

    Step 3:  Twist & Secure First Section

    • Begin the design on your left side
    • Start with a small section twisting up and away from your face, only adding sections from the front side of the twist – this will keep the front looking controlled
    • Keep adding more sections until you arrive behind your ear on the opposite side of the head
    • Keep twisting the length until it buckles into a bun at your nape
    • Secure the section with a large hairpin

    HOT TIP:

    • When securing a shape with a hairpin begin by placing the pin thru the shape in the opposite direction, then secure it back toward the desired shape using a hook movement
    • This will allow for maximum tension and security

    Step 4: Adding Second Section To Your Bun

    • Take your front section on the opposite side and gently fold it towards the back bun
    • Pin the section into the bun area
    • Twist the remaining ends and tuck into the back of the bun – secure with a medium hairpin
