First, I wash, dried, and styled my hair.  When blowdrying my hair, I used Got2b® Volumaniac Mousse for some extra overall lift, but concentrated the product at my roots. Then, after I curled my hair, I sprayed it with Got2b® Volumaniac Hair Spray to keep everything in place. These products have root-boosting technology to give your hair some great volume.

Extra Hold While Teasing Your Hair

really like voluminous hair, so after styling, I teased my roots in sections.  After teasing each section, make sure to spray with Got2b® Volumaniac Hair Spray at the roots, then turn the can sideways, press it into the roots, and flip your hair over the can to give it extra staying power!

Temporary Hair Color for Halloween

For temporary hair color, I grabbed Got2b® Trendsformer Colored Wax in both pink and blue.  These colored waxes allow you to express your individual style and are perfect for Halloween! You can use them for all-over color with shorter hair, or to create colored streaks in longer hair like mine.

When working with Got2b® Trendsformer colored waxes, I found it easiest to use a medium-sized eyeshadow brush.  Simply dip the brush in the colored wax and pick up product. Make sure you pick up a small goop of product when working with dark hair, as you’ll be brushing it throughout your hair and it takes more product for the colored waxes to show.

As you’re working with the Got2b® Trendsformer colored waxes, you can apply color in a couple of ways.  First, you can concentrate the color on certain stands of hair with precision.  Second, you can randomly brush the color throughout your stands as your hair lays flat. I used both techniques to get this look.

I love that the Got2b® Trendsformer colored waxes give you instant color benefits without damaging your hair.  The formula easily washes out and you’re right back to your regular hair color without any hassle.
