How To Style:

1. Tease horizontal sections of hair above the occipital bone with a teasing brush.

2. Set the teasing with a firm hold spray.

3. Repeat this process until you’ve reached the hairline in front.

4. Lightly comb the surface of the hair to give it a smoother look.

5. Comb and set all the hair sweeping away from the face.

6. Spray a firm hold spray and set by clipping the hair on the sides in place to hold the hair swept back. Use business cards with the clips to prevent any creasing or bends on the hair.

7. Once the hairspray has completely dried, remove the clips.

8. Set the entire look with a flexible hold spray.

Recommended Products:

Aquage Freeze and Hold Spray holds the hair firmly, but can be brushed out and still leave the hair soft.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Wider face shapes with hair that is medium in density and texture will suit this hairstyle.

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa’s fairytale, bohemian-inspired hair looked amazing with her beautiful gown! We love this style most because it can stand out even on its own.

How To Style:

1. Apply a thermal protection spray to the hair.

2. Wrap sections of hair around a large barrel iron in different directions.

3. Apply a product for texture.

4. Pull the hair back into a half ponytail, but secure it with bobby pins that match the color of your hair.

5. Put braided hair that matches your hair color on your head like a headband.

6. Set the hairstyle with a flexible hold spray.

Recommended Products:

Matrix’s Texture Builder is perfect for achieving and holding texture and volume in a style like Vanessa’s.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

All face shapes with hair that is high in density and medium to coarse in texture will suit this hairstyle.

Tip:

You can purchase headbands made of braided hair, or create your own by buying hair at a beauty supply store and braiding it yourself. If your hair is long and thick enough, braid the hair from the half ponytail, wrap it around your head and secure it with bobby pins.

Kat Graham

Kat’s chic asymmetric bob was styled into classic old Hollywood waves. SWOON!

How To Style:

1. Create a deep side part.

2. Curl sections of hair to one direction. The hair on the lighter side of the part will curl towards the face and the hair of the heavier side of the part will curl away from the face.

3. Wait for the hair to cool completely.

4. Gently brush out the curls until they form into a wave.

5. Set the hairstyle with a flexible hold spray.

Recommended Products:

Paul Mitchell’s Hold Me Tight is a flexible hold spray with long lasting hold that works perfectly to hold these waves in place.

All face shapes with hair that has long to no layers at all and is medium in texture and density will suit this hairstyle.
