Unwashed straight hair is the perfect foundation for this style. Run a little mousse through hair to give it some extra hold and volume. Make a deep side part and tease the front section pulling it loosely back, over your ear instead of tucked behind it. Do the same with the other side. Use a little styling cream on your ends and pull loose hair forward over your shoulder.A combination of blow-drying and air-drying creates a great, balanced style. Use a little straightening balm and blow-dry heavier bangs so they lie straight.Run a little anti-frizz through hair and let the rest air-dry while you do your makeup.
If your hair tends to get frizzy at the roots and flip out at the ends, use that to your advantage and rock a hat-keeping all the visible style in your ends. Take a large dollop of mousse and run it through towel-dried hair.Roughly dry your whole head with a blow dryer. Take a small-barrel curling iron and define face-framing bits. Then, after you put on your hat, rake your fingers through the curls to soften the look.
This is a great look for unwashed, straight hair. Grab the section of hair right at the front of your crown, making sure not to pick up any of the side pieces. Backcomb it so you get some real lift. Then spray that section with a non-sticky hairspray and backcomb a little more. Pull the section back and a little to the side and fasten it with bobby pins so the ends are sticking out but you're keeping the height at the roots.
Mix a little leave-in conditioner and gel in your palm and then apply to damp hair. Use a diffuser and work until hair is mostly dry, but not all the way — it's good to let a few curls dry on their own for a more natural texture. A deep side part gives this style extra sexiness — it's a great way to give curly hair an evening-ready edge without actually doing anything to your hair.
If your hair is on the thin side-and curly, you want shine and control without the weight. Look for stylers without silicone and use leave-in conditioner sparingly on damp hair. Flip head over and scrunch curls lightly with a towel. Finger-curl a few pieces to give definition, but avoid heat styling. Finish off the look with hairspray.
This look is all about beachy ends and lift at the roots. Spray some volumizer all over your roots and quickly blow-dry aiming a nozzle right at your roots. After towel-drying hair, wet with a beachy salt spray so you get a laidback, undone texture. Flip head over and shake out your hair to distribute and activate the product.
Towel-dry hair vigorously and run conditioning styling cream through your hair and let it air-dry as you style your bangs. Blow-dry your bangs with a round brush, making sure they're completely dry. Run a tiny dab of shine serum over bangs to add a little polish to the look. If the rest of your hair isn't close to almost dry, attach a diffuser and quickly dry the ends.
Apply volumizing mousse to the ends of your hair while damp. Work to really smooth the hair at the roots as you dry with a round brush. Then, scrunch and shake from the middle to the ends of your hair as you dry to get that extra texture. Work a little texture cream into the ends to ramp up the piecey effect.
Getting a sexy tousled look with fine hair is a little more work, but definitely doable. Wash hair with a volumizing shampoo — skimp on the conditioner since you want healthy hair but don't want to weigh it down. Spray volumizer all over and blow-dry hair fast and furious without a comb or brush, just shaking your fingers through to rough up the texture. Once it's absolutely dry, use a bit of dry shampoo to ramp up the bedhead-y texture.
