First Form by X-presion

With X-presion
Duration22 minutes
Skill levelAdvanced


X-presion's tutorial is an innovative, pioneering form using an X-presion structure, which is moulded to suit the head shape, then placed onto the head and secured. Hair is then passed over and under the structure to cover with a smooth and sleek finish. The lower ponytail is wrapped around a chignon base, fashioned and continued into the higher structure creating an ensemble of beautifully balanced curves and swirls.

Members can also find below a detailed step by step guide to a first form hairstyle.
