Now that you’ve got major volume at your crown, it’s time to smooth things over. Atkin suggests taking a medium-hold pomade or wax (try the Molding Cream ($28) by Moroccan Oil) and applying it to your crown using your hands. If your roots are still too high, comb through with your fingers.
And there you have it—gorgeous, romantic waves perfect for any occasion!
