When you have naturally straight hair, working up any kind of texture can seem like an uphill struggle sometimes. This is especially common with fine hair but, fear not, it is totally possible to get your tresses looking and feeling a little different. While using different sized curling irons and teasing your locks can help you change up your style, learning how to make some of your favorite products (or soon-to-be favorites) do the work for you makes the whole process really, really easy.

Hairspray & lots of it

With a volumizing hairspray, it's really easy to get an artfully disheveled look. Simply spray your hair evenly throughout then tease at the roots. Spray as you go to ensure great hold, then fix with a veil of regular hairspray when you're happy with your look.

Similarly, when you're curling your hair, use hairspray to set each piece as soon as it comes off the curling iron, and mist your finished style generously to make sure it all stays put.

Pomades, pastes, putties & wax

To achieve subtle strand separation for a disheveled, piecey finish, all you need is a low-shine or matte styling product. Warm a small amount of your chosen putty, wax, paste, pomade or gum on your fingertips then scrunch it through the ends. Twist and tousle individual sections then shape with your hands to finish.

Wet look

Finally, if you're feeling brave, a wet look hairstyle could be another great way to switch up your regular style. It's guaranteed to alter the texture and you can rock a wet-look finish in a whole bunch of different ways. Whether super-slick, messy or just a subtle sheen, you can get your hair to do pretty much anything with enough product!
