The best hairstyles to give you an edge in school

The best hairstyle that’ll give you a casual yet tough-girl edgy look is a textured cut with highlights. You can rock this look with either long or short hair since achieving this look is all about enhancing texture and creating that messy-lived-in look in your strands. After washing your hair with products that tame frizz (like Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo & Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Conditioner); then it’s all down to the styling! All you need is a texturizing product (we love the TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray), a bit of teasing and hair scrunching, and you’re out the door!

If you really want to make a statement when you enter the room, this Edgy Blunt Fringe Cut is the cool girl hairstyle to rock. First, pull your hair into a tight ponytail and spritz dry shampoo along the roots of your fringe (we love the TONI&GUY Matte Texture Dry Shampoo). Then, flat iron your fringe to ensure it stays smooth and straight through the day.

This type of fringe adds that fashion-girl vibe to your look and easily draws attention to your face. To keep your bangs looking fresh through the day, give it a few spritz of dry shampoo along the roots right after you flat iron them straight. That way, the roots won’t get oily and the texture from the dry shampoo will add a bit more body and hold to the bangs without weighing them down too much.

To protect your hair from the heat of the flat iron, we recommend using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray as it  helps to seal in shine and reduce frizz.

If you really want to make a statement with a stylish haircut, then take a trip down to the salon and request for a Pixie Cut With Full Side Bangs. If you have naturally straight hair, this cut is easy to maintain in the mornings when you’re rushing out the door. All you need to do is give it a quick blow-dry in the morning (focusing on the side bangs) and applying a coin-sized amount of Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream to keep the frizz away.

For a low-maintenance look, opt for a shag bob with wispy bangs. Get a bob-cut a few inches below your ears with soft bangs. Give it a quick wash in the morning and towel-dry your hair. Then, scrunch hair mousse along the ends of your hair and through your bangs. Give it all a quick blow-dry and head out the door! We recommend the TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse to give the style a bit more lift.

So which hairstyle will you be rocking in school? Remember, think of this time in your life as that moment to re-invent yourself. Start school with a renewed spirit and the drive to not only do well in your classes (of course!) but to also break through the school crowd and get yourself noticed.
