Step 1.

From freshly blow-dried hair, begin. Style hair with a round bristle brush for some added volume and texture and with a thickening finishing spray, polish the look.

Step 2.

Separate a one-inch section of hair from the part after creating a deep side part. From the area closest to the hairline, this section of hair should be pulled.

Step 3.

Braid the hair’s one-inch section. You may choose a fishtail braid or a traditional three-strand braid.

Step 4.

By using bobby pins, secure the braid once you’ve created it.

Step 5.

Curl face-framing layers with a one-inch curling iron to add texture. For an effortless vibe that’s perfect for daytime, run your fingers through the curls. To finish, spray a light hold hairspray.

Night: Braid Leading into Bun

For an added romantic element, this look can be created by bringing the original braid back into a messy, loose bun.

Step 1.

Begin with a texturizing spray to spritzing the roots of the hair.

Step 2.

Gently tease the roots with a fine-toothed comb and brush hair back so the entire braid is exposed.

Step 3.

Into a low ponytail, about an inch above the nape of the neck, gather hair and with elastic, secure the ponytail. Backcomb the length of the ponytail and spritz the ponytail with a texturizing spray.

Step 4.

Coil the ponytail into a bun and secure the hair with several bobby pins to finish.

Day: Headband with Loose Waves

Headbands can easily be casual-cool for day and ultra glam for a night out and are one of the most versatile hair accessories.

Step 1.

To add texture and protect hair from the heat styling tools, begin by prepping dry hair with a styling spray.

Step 2.

Separate the hair into four sections and comb hair into a middle part.

Step 3.

Spritz hair with a medium-hold hairspray and curl each section with a one inch curling wand.

Step 4.

Soften the curls by running your fingers through your hair, for a more relaxed look.

Step 5.

With an embellished look, finish the look.

For a softer, old Hollywood texture, brush through the curls you’ve created.

Step 4.

Secure with a clear elastic after gathering the hair to one side and create a ponytail at the base of the neck.

For a day-date or to the office, sport this sleek and straight style.

Step 1.

Start by brushing your flat-ironed hair back and at the crown, creating a tight ponytail. Secure with elastic.
