In case you haven’t noticed, textured hairstyles are having a major moment in the beauty world right now. It started with the French girl hair trend and now everyone who’s anyone wants effortlessly dishevelled, bedhead hair — isn’t that right, Meghan Markle?
Have we got your attention, now? Great! Here are 8 ways you can make the most of this hot-to-trot trend this season and beyond.
8 textured hairstyles from Instagram that'll up your mane game
1. Textured ponytail
We love ponytail hairstyles (erm, who doesn’t?), but if you really want to make yours worthy of a double tap, you’ll need to take notes from this gorgeous example, above.
This Insta-babe has given her go-to pony a textured upgrade, choosing to also complete her undone curls with a classic bandana scarf. So, why not take a leaf our her hair book? Credit: @tezzamb
Editor’s tip: When it comes to creating textured hairstyles, like this one, the VO5 Dry Texturising spray is all you need to give you the roughed-up texture this look requires.
After you have used this wonder product in your mane, use a medium-barrel curling tong to add extra movement, and then you’ll be ready for your close-up.
2. Mermaid curls
How adorable are these mermaid-inspired curls? Instead of wearing your long lengths straight this season, freshen them up by adding in a few loose curls to make them exude It girl vibes. Easy, peasy! Credit: @nyane
3. Short loose curls
4. Textured half-up, half-down hair
Hair up or down? Don’t spend a second more pondering over it, because this textured half-up, half-down hairstyle is the perfect solution. Not only will it stylishly keep your hair off your face, but it’ll also look amazing with your favourite hair accessory.
