Overview

John Vial's hair styling tutorial guides you through a classic tong set and sectioning pattern as if in an editorial environment - quick and accentual. As a bonus we have included a second look. John works with a simple ponytail base fitted with a curl body and a 40's round reverse fringe section to give this impressive updo the deliciously necessary polish.

This educational video provides essential hairdressing techniques for session or editorial hairdressers, including tips on back combing, pin curling to give volume, ponytails, tonging and winding point to root.
