Patrick Cameron’s long hair dressing and styling tutorial guides you through a basic heated roller set resulting in a highly commercial, elegant, dressed shape. This technique draws from Patrick's outstanding career in the industry. A simple horizontal roll executed from a ponytail base with texture to lighten the mood.

To achieve the desired effect, Patrick combines barrel curls, pinning, a ponytail and rollering.

The result is a highly commercial, elegant, dressed shape - a fresh and young take on old school updos.
