Blow dry hair and set it with medium and large-sized Velcro rollers for height and body. Once the hair has cooled, remove the rollers and lightly cover hair with Shaper Zero Gravity to create added texture and separation. Create authentic cowgirl flair by separating hair into two loose, tousled pigtails and decorate them with torn fabric or thin leather ties. Finish with Re-Shaper.

Andre finished the look with the Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray.
