This shade shines most in the sunlight and looks beautiful when styled in easy loose waves. Use a flexible-hold hairspray to keep the waves intact without making them look and feel crunchy. Use a curling wand to create these long waves and mist them with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Smooth Hold Level 2 Hair Spray for a smooth finish!

4. Darker Hues
