2. Textured lob

Say goodbye to flat and lifeless hair by creating a textured ‘do. For this hairstyle, imperfections are welcome. You can simply brush or finger-comb your hair to get rid of tangles. Then, spritz hair wax or texturizing spray, and scrunch to style hair and distribute the product evenly. If you have bangs, blow dry them so they stay in good shape all day long, but leave the rest of your hair as is.

3. Wavy hair

Blessed with natural waves? Good for you! If you have straight hair, however, make it wavy if you want to add volume and bounce. You can create a tousled hairstyle by putting small sections of your hair into buns and pinning them. Once your hair has dried, unpin all the sections, and you get wavy hair. You can also use a blow dryer to make waves.
