How To Style:

  1. Prep hair with a light hold mousse and smoothing hair lotion.
  2. Blow hair out with a paddle brush and get it as smooth as possible.
  3. When hair is completely dry, part deeply to one side and brush through.
  4. Use a large-sized curling wand and create waves throughout strands.
  5. Start waves from the cheekbone down and direct them away from your face.
  6. Finish off with a little hair lotion to smooth strands out even more.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

All face shapes can wear this gorgeous wavy hairstyle. Medium to thick hair is best to get that nice and full look. Naturally straight to wavy textured hair types would work well for this look.

Recommended Products:

Use Prive’s Shining Weightless Amplifier on damp strands along with Moroccan Oil’s Smoothing Cream for an amazing blowout.

Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan looked fresh and modern with a touch of girlish charm wearing this romantic updo. A messy bun could have looked too casual, but the soft feminine details made it look classy and sophisticated. The most awesome element of this hairstyle is how wearable it is.

How To Style:

  1. Start with clean dry hair and brush through.
  2. Prep hair with a little product. Drop down a small section of hair and spray with a light hold hairspray or texture spray. Continue to drop down sections of hair until your entire head of hair is lightly coated with product.
  3. Use a brush to loosely pull hair up into a high ponytail.
  4. Tease the strands of your ponytail, then smooth out slightly. The teasing is to create volume and a little texture.
  5. Wrap strands into a loose and slightly messy bun, securing with pins.
  6. Use your fingers to pull out a few loose pieces around your face.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round or square shaped faces would look best with this pulled up hairstyle. Straight or wavy hair textures can wear this look as long as you have medium to thick amounts of hair that’s on the long side.

Recommended Products:

Use Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to prep hair strands. It helps build a lightweight volume and creates incredible texture. Finish your look off with their Superfine Hairspray.

Rachel McAdams

Here’s one for all the short haired girls out there! Rachel McAdams killed it with this adorably messy bob. Cut bluntly at the chin with just enough flirty layers to give it some whimsy and fun, this hairstyle is super chic. Be a star by creating this cute hairstyle on your own.

How To Style:

  1. Create a deep side part and flop hair over to one side.
  2. Use a small curling iron (one-inch is perfect) to grab random pieces and curl strands.
  3. Use the iron to curl strands in different directions so the finished look isn’t too perfect.
  4. Spray your hair with a light hold hairspray or a texture spray. Be generous and go through section by section with your sprays to really buildup the texture.
  5. Scrunch hair with your fingers to show off that gritty texture even more.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This haircut would flatter round or square shaped faces. Straight to slightly curly hair textures are good candidates for this look on ladies with thin to thick hair.

Recommended Products:

Big Sexy Hair’s Flip it Over Hairspray builds up volume and texture in a snap. Paul Mitchell’s Texturizing Sea Spray is awesome to use throughout the day for touch ups.
