Take a look at this transformation I gave Dawn-Lyen Gardner of Queen Sugar to enhance and show off her natural curls! Chopping off over six inches of hair and adding bangs might seem like a daring transition, but after working with an extensive list of A-list clientele which includes big names like Lilimar Hernandez, H.E.R.,   Lizzy Greene, Skylar Diggins, and Taraji P. Henson, you can bet that Dawn-Lyen was in perfect hands for her big chop. Sporting her new cut on her Instagram, Dawn-Lyen traded in her longer than shoulder length hair for bob-length curls that were defined with the use of the Ouidad Advanced Climate Control System.

Before styling, I used the Advanced Climate Control Detangling Spray to protect against damage and prevent frizz. Creating small sections, I used the “shake and rake” curl technique using the VitaCurl Define & Shine Styling Gel Cream and the Heat and Humidity Gel to provide control and definition without heavy product buildup. Afterward, I defused Dawn-Lyen’s hair with my BabylissPro SteelFX blowdryer, finishing everything off with a few spritzes of Ouidad’s Mongongo Oil to ensure that Dawn-Lyen’s hair stayed frizz free and hydrated as I loosened and picked-out curls to add volume.
