1. Create Subtle Winter Waves

Winterize your summer wavy hairstyle routine. After washing your hair, use a product like Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Mist throughout your hair while it’s damp. Instead of heading out and air-drying your hair, as you would in the summer, use a diffuser to dry. After drying, tousle your waves with your hands to enhance volume and fullness. Then set your hair with a spray that offers a flexible and texturizing hold—like TRESemmé Dry Hair Texturizing Spray.

2. Add Texture to Updos.

Using salt spray for off-the-neck styles is a great styling hack for those who want to fake fuller hair, or for those who want an updo that’s chock full of texture. Twist your hair then generously spritz damp hair with some Love Beauty and Planet Light Hold & Frizz Control Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Hair Spray to create tousled texture. Release your twists, finger comb to detangle then gather your hair into a loose low bun. Add pins to the base of your bun to secure and you’re done!
