Use the GLOSSIE hot brush to straighten hair

STRAIGHTEN & SHINE


Press your tresses with the GLOSSIE Ceramic Styling Brush. Comb hair before gliding GLOSSIE through hair from root to end. Hello polished perfection. Spritz hair with SHINE Refining Mist.

Section hair and start your inverted braid with these how to instructions

SECTION & BRAID


Part hair. Section a small piece of hair into 3 pieces to begin your inverted braid. As you braid, cross new strands under the middle piece of your braid, not over. Once the braid gets to where your head starts to round, stop drawing hair from under the braid (closest to your ear), take only vertical sections from the top.

Hair idea inverted braid, repeat braid on both sides of hair

TIE & REPEAT


When your braid gets to the center of your head, stop drawing hair and braid all the way down, leaving a couple of inches of hair before you tie off. Repeat the inverted braid on the other side.

Fatten your braid and for volume and hair texture

FATTEN BRAID


Slide your hair tie half an inch down – fatten the braid by pulling out on the outer pieces, moving from bottom to top. Pro Tip: go over braid with volumizing powder or spray before fattening for extra hold.

Pull your inverted braid through the other inverted braid

CROSS


Pull open a piece of the right braid and pull the left braid through the loop you’ve created.

Pin inverted braid into place and follow the hair tutorial

FOLD UP & PIN


One braid at a time, fold up and fold on top of one another. Pin into place. *Pin Hack: the bumpy side goes into hair for better grip.
