Styling ideas

1/ Waves

Half-up hairstyles look work really well with waves and curls. If your hair is naturally straight, add movement by applying a wave enhancing spray throughout and blow-drying it in twisted sections. You can then add even more texture by scrunching some wax through the ends once your mane has been dried and curled.

2/ Amp up the volume

Whether you want to try a retro bouffant or a more modern quiff hairstyle, volume is the key ingredient. To build height that lasts, spray your hair, especially the the roots, with a volumizing hairspray, then tease your locks from behind. For long-lasting hold, complete your finished look with a generous mist of hairspray.

3/ Sleek chic

For a glossy look, blow-dry your hair after applying a straightening cream to help smooth the cuticle as the hair dries. When you're done, add shine and banish any unwelcome flyaways with a serum. To finish, mist with hairspray to make sure your glossy locks stay just the way you want them throughout the day.
