Mizani Educator Ashley Brown shows you how to style textured hair using Mizani lacers. Lacers are the perfect styling tool to create free-formed texture with control and hold. Made with a unique foam exclusive to Mizani, these lacers speed up drying time to get your client styled quickly.

Not only can Mizani lacers be used on Texture Types 8 – 2, but they are also perfect on straight hair.

Check out the below to create loose waves, spiraled coils and added volume into the hair. And don’t forget to keep lacers on your wrist for easy and quick application.

When using a lacer set on wet hair, use a spray bottle to make sure your guest’s hair is evenly saturated.

Next, spray hair with 25 Miracle Milk and gently detangle with a wide paddle brush. Remember to continuously detangle.

Time to section the hair. Part the front of the hair into two equal pieces on a diagonal angle, creating a smaller back section from the nape.

Apply the True Textures Curl Enhancing Lotion to each section as you go. Squeeze out a dime size amount and emulsify between hands, then rake it through the hair. Then, divide the section into two parts. The size of the sections will depend on your client’s hair density, texture and desired finished look.

Slide your lacer onto the hair, and split it into two sections. Wrap the hair around the lacers in opposite directions to add volume.

Wrap the ends of the hair with end paper and secure with a bobby pin for extra smoothness in the hair ends.

Continue these steps throughout the hair using a brick lay pattern. Keep the tension tight so the hair stays smooth and texture is consistent throughout.

To achieve a tighter coil, wrap the hair closer together on the lacer. For a looser wave, space the hair further apart when wrapping around the lacer.

Once your guest is fully wrapped it’s time to dry. Place your guest under a hooded dryer for at least 60 minutes or until the hair is completely dried.

To check if the hair is dry, unwrap a dense section of hair from a lacer and check for any moisture. If any sections are still wet, re-wrap the hair and place under the dryer for an additional time.

To unwrap the hairs, start at the nape where you began lacing. Be careful not to disturb the coil, this can create frizz. Once all lacers are removed, begin styling with the Mizani Styling Collection. Scoop a nickel-sized amount of Lived-In Sculpting Paste and work through the coils for extra definition. Rub the paste between your hands to warm it up.

Place product on the back of your hand to keep it warm and for easy access.

For a variation of texture, use the Lived-In Texture Creation Cream to piece the curls out for a more defined texture look. You can also use the cream to smooth curls and add more shine.
