How To Style: If your natural texture is straight, emphasizing the shine and health of your hair is key. How to make the most of your straight hair? Use a deep-cleansing shampoo and follow up with a lightweight conditioner, focusing the product only on the ends. Be sure to avoid using too many styling products, which can have the effect of weighing down your hair and flattening it. Instead, we suggest blow-drying with a nozzle and a smooth paddle brush. Pull the hair taut with the brush and aim the air towards the ends. Finish the style with a straightening iron, if necessary, and add a shine serum to get that light reflecting shampoo-commercial hair.
Bonus Tip: Girls with straight hair should avoid pointing the blow dryer directly into your hair – this will cause frizz! Instead tilt the dryer down and use a low setting to dry.
How To Style: If you wake up with a natural wavy texture that looks like you just came from a beach vacation – count yourself lucky! The best thing to do to style your hair is to let it air dry. Simply brush when wet and apply a little volumizing mousse to the roots in a scrunching motion to accentuate your curls and spritz on a sea salt spray. If you want to apply some heat, attach a diffuser to the end of your dryer and on the lowest setting, take sections of your hair from root to tip and place inside the diffuser and against your head until dry.
Bonus Tip: For a more styled effect like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, take a 1 inch clipless curling iron and wrap large sections around the barrel changing the direction facing away from and towards your face. Spray with a light hold hairspray and you’re done!
How To Style: To get the most out of your naturally thick and curly hair, apply a curl-building serum from the mid-shaft to ends to wet hair and rough blow dry on a medium-low setting until hair is about 80% dry. Roll your hair from ends to root into large Velcro rollers. Pin the roller in and allow to air dry and cool while you apply your makeup or eat breakfast. Once the hair is completely dry, remove the rollers and tousle your hair to break up the curls a bit. Spray with some strong hairspray and you’re done!
Bonus Tip: When applying styling products, don’t use too much! Take the time to apply them evenly and only apply more where needed. Be careful not to overdo it.
VERY CURLY HAIR
How To Style: Apply a detangling mask in the shower and gently comb through wet hair with a wide-tooth comb. Spray in a curl enhancer and twist small sections around your finger and release to get a more uniform curl pattern. Lightly blow dry with a diffuser and apply a small amount of oil to the ends to keep your curls looking hydrated and shiny.
Bonus Tip: Make sure that you’re getting a quality haircut specifically tailored to your curly hair. This will help the style to look it’s absolute best.
