First step: Swain set the foundation for the style with the shampoo, conditioner and styling oil from Sebastian’s Dark Oil line. The products “infuse nutrients” and help “create movement while maintaining luster.”

She then bolstered locks with a dollop of Sebastian’s Professional Mousse Forte and straightened with the Harry Josh Pro Tools Cordless Flatiron. To “began the process of creating perfectly sculpted body waves,” the hair guru “used heat and product to create free flowing shape,” then added definition with the Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Cordless Curling Wand.

The finishing touch? “I placed the sweet finishing curl and completed the look with Sebastian Professional Shaper hairspray,” she says. A spritz of Sebastian Shaper Plus hairspray (“a workhorse of  perfection,” according to the pro) helped lock out humidity and a final sweep of the Harry Josh Pro Tools Cordless Flatiron sealed ends.
