First we want to just set the scene before we dive in.  Picture this: a lightweight, multitasking styling marvel that effortlessly adds texture, volume, and movement to your hair without any heaviness or residue. That's exactly what you get with THE MOVEMENT.

Whether you're rocking sleek straight hair, tousled waves, or bouncy curls, this spray has got you covered. The unique formula is specially designed to provide instant volume and flexible texture, giving your hair a natural-looking lift and bounce that lasts all day. 

The best part about it? It works beautifully on all hair types, from fine to thick, making it a must-have staple in your Headcare.t

Styling Technique 1: Instant Volume and Texture

Achieving instant volume and texture can be a struggle for many. We get it.  Whether you have fine, limp hair or thick, heavy locks, getting that larger than life volume and texture can sometimes feel like an uphill battle.

For starters, fine or thin hair tends to lack natural volume and can easily fall flat, especially at the roots. Additionally, heavy or dense hair can weigh itself down, making it difficult to achieve lift and bounce. Even those with naturally voluminous hair may find that their locks lose their oomph throughout the day due to factors like humidity, sweat, or simply the passage of time.

Traditional volumizing products like mousses or sprays can often leave hair feeling stiff, sticky, or weighed down, making them less than ideal for achieving natural-looking volume and texture. Plus, overusing these products can lead to buildup, leaving hair looking dull and lifeless rather than full and voluminous. By providing lift and hold without stiffness or stickiness, THE MOVEMENT allows you to achieve your desired style effortlessly in just a few spritzes:

  1. Prep your hair: If your hair is freshly washed, make sure it's completely dry before applying THE MOVEMENT.
  2. Shake well: Give the bottle a good shake to ensure the product is well mixed and ready to work its magic.
  3. Section your hair: Divide your hair into manageable sections using clips or hair ties. This will help you apply THE MOVEMENT evenly and achieve maximum coverage.
  4. Apply THE MOVEMENT: Hold the bottle about 6-8 inches away from your hair and spray evenly throughout each section. Focus on the roots, the body, and ends to create volume and texture from root to tip.
  5. Zhuzh and tousle: Once you've applied THE MOVEMENT, use your fingers to massage it into your roots and tousle your hair gently to distribute the product evenly. 
  6. Style as desired: Get creative and style your hair to achieve your desired look. Whether you prefer sleek and polished or tousled and undone, THE MOVEMENT will help to create lift and texture throughout your chosen style.

Pro Tip: For even more volume, flip your head upside down when applying  THE MOVEMENT. Use your fingers to zhuzh the product in and flip your hair back for instant lift.

Styling Technique 2: Effortless Beachy Waves

Beachy waves are the epitome of effortless style and have a beautifully-boho, laid-back charm, making them a year round style favourite. 

However, creating those beachy waves can pose a bit of a challenge, especially when factors like hair texture, volume, and the right product come into play. Straight or fine hair might lack the volume and texture needed, then there's mastering the curling technique, and not to mention choosing the perfect product that delivers just the right amount of hold and texture without weighing your hair down! 

With THE MOVEMENT DRY TEXTURIZING SPRAY, achieving enviable beachy waves has never been easier. Here's how you can create them:

  1. Start with dry hair: Begin by ensuring your hair is completely dry before styling. If your hair is still damp, blow-dry it using a hair dryer on a low or medium heat setting to avoid heat damage.
  2. Prep your hair: Divide your hair into layered sections and apply THE MOVEMENT focusing on the roots, the body and then ends, where you want to create the most texture and movement.
  3. Create your waves: Once you've applied THE MOVEMENT, use a curling wand or straightener to create loose, beachy waves. Start by wrapping a small section of hair around the barrel of the wand, holding it for a few seconds, and then releasing. Leave the very ends of your hair straight for an authentic beachy look. Repeat this process until all of your hair is curled.
  4. Set the style: After curling your hair, use your fingers to tousle and separate the waves for a more relaxed look. Do not brush! If desired, you can also lightly mist your hair with THE VEIL HAIRSPRAY to help set the style and add extra hold. 

Styling Technique 3: Textured Updo or Ponytail

Styling an updo or ponytail with the perfect amount of texture can be no mean feat. If you’re finding your hair lacks the necessary grit to hold onto the style, resulting in a flat or limp appearance, you’re not alone. Others struggle with too many flyaways and frizz, making it challenging to achieve that delicate balance between achieving a style that’s textured and tousled yet still put together. However, with THE MOVEMENT DRY TEXTURIZING SPRAY, enhancing texture in updos or ponytails becomes a breeze.

To use THE MOVEMENT for this style, start by spraying it onto dry hair, focusing on the roots and mid-lengths. Gently zhuzh the hair with your fingers to distribute the product evenly and create a natural-looking texture. Then, gather your hair into a ponytail or twist it into an updo, using a paddle brush to smooth the sides and bobby pins or hair ties to secure the style in place. For some extra bounce in a ponytail, spray some additional product on your palms and then shape with your hands until you get your desired level of texture. Pro tip: for an invisible finish go for pins and ties that are either clear or that match your hair colour.
