Perfect for spring, the vacuum ring set is an easy way to get a tousled, fun look for a wide variety of natural textures.

Upon review, let me know if you intend to feature this styling technique in an upcoming editorial or video tutorial. Design Essentials® Natural products are available upon request and availability to assist you in trying out this style. Thanks much for your consideration!
The critical item needed for this style is
rubber vacuum cleaner rings, found at any home goods store. If you want to dry hair using a hooded dryer or overnight, be sure to purchase enough rings to set the entire head. Deshonica calls this a “dry set,” meaning hair doesn’t have to be soaking wet to achieve. First, comb through hair to eliminate tangles. Dampen the hair with Design Essentials® Natural Twist & Set Setting Lotion. As you work through the hair, section off 2″ square partings to work with.
Before unwinding the hair from the vacuum ring, Deshonica coats hands with a mixture of Design Essentials® Nutriment Rx Creme Hairdress and Herbal Complex 4 Hair and Scalp treatment for moisture and conditioning. Begin unwrapping hair from the ring and separating into smaller subsections for fullness. The more times you separate the section, the more full the style will be. You can polish the look with Design Essentials® Diamonds Hair Sheen and Form Hair Spray for hold. Finishing products listed above may be purchased online or at local area salons.

WHAT THE STYLIST/INNOVATOR SAYS:
“This style gives you tons of movement with a soft to medium hold,” says Deshonica Kerrie. “For straighter textures that want to create a curly look with this method, use Design Essentials® Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse lightly to avoid hair being weighted down and be sure to use end papers to ensure the hair wraps to the ring.
