1. Start with a precision haircut which encourages the natural curls and waves to fall into beautiful textured clumps. Work with a hairstylist who specializes in cutting naturally textured hair and ask them to cut hair so that the individual curl and wave patterns nestle into each other.

Note: If you wish to have a long side-swept fringe like Jennifer wears and your hair is curlier than the singer's then ask your stylist to suggest alternate ways of cutting your hair so that your fringe area does not shrink.  In some cases you may need your the length of your fringe to extend down below your chin by a few inches to allow for the curls and waves to shrink into their natural shape.

2.  Cleanse hair with moisture enhancing formulas in luke warm water.  You may wish to adopt a naturally textured cleansing process of Diluted Shampoo (DS) Low Poo, Conditioner Only (CO) Wash, Water Only (WO) wash, no poo or a combination.  To keep the fringe area free of dirt and oil consider using a dry shampoo for fringe touch-ups.

3.  Once hair has been cleansed, rinse well and apply a rinse out conditioner.  Use fingers or wide-tooth comb to detangle in shower.  Start at ends and work up to roots.  Once hair is detangled rinse well and finish with a cool or cold water rinse to close cuticle and encourage shine.

4.  Towel blot to remove excess moisture.  You may wish to plop hair in a towel to encourage natural curl and wave formation.  If you don't wish to plop then apply styling cocktail consisting of leave-in conditioner, defrisant and/or curl enhancing cream or gel.  The ultimate cocktail should match your hair's individual needs and your ultimate styling desires.

5.  Use a wide tooth comb, create desired part and separate out fringe area.

6.  Use a long finger diffuser and work on small 1 1/2 to 2" sections of  hair at a time starting with the fringe area.  Keep a spray bottle hand filled with water and spritz hair lightly if sections dry before you can diffuse them.   After drying each section of hair roll around fingers and pin to scalp to allow hair to cool and set into a curl formation.

Note: Optionally you can take damp hair which has been prepped with the styling cocktail and roll hair with fingers into ringlets and pin to the scalp to allow hair to air dry into shape.

7.  Once hair has been completely dried, curled around the fingers, pinned to the scalp and completely set, unpin each section one at a time.

8.  Bend over at waist and gently tousle newly formed waves and curls.  If you prefer, simply use fingers to gently arrange new texture.  Do not brush or comb unless absolutely necessary since this may cause frizz to form and hair to blow up and get big.

To fine tune curls or waves separate hair into 1/2" sections and spiral wrap around a 1.25" curling iron in opposite directions.  One section should be curled forward while the other curled backward.  Alternate throughout the head.

9.  Finish by spraying with a shine enhancing light hold hairspray.  If you prefer you can apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of your hands and massage together.  Swipe the serum coated palms over the top of the finished style to block frizz and encourage shine.
