While Natalie's hair was wet, Mancuso worked Nexxus Lavish Body, a volumizing spray gel, from roots to ends. He then blew her hair dry with a paddle brush, lifting at the roots. While her hair was still warm, he transferred one-inch sections onto Velcro rollers. He let the rollers cool completely, then took them out and tousled her hair with a bit of smoothing lotion.
Next, Mancuso took out a one-inch front section of hair, pulled the rest back into a ponytail, and used bobby pins to create a soft chignon. To polish the look, he used a flat iron to smooth the front curl and help position hair around Natalie's face. Finally, he set the style with a light misting of Nexxus Comb Thru ($11) hair spray.
