Proof That a Center Part and Loose Waves Will Give You Instant Bombshell Status

Think of this as an instant makeover -- achievable with the snap of your fingers.

One of the most exciting parts of starting a new season is all the fresh outfit and beauty inspiration. Getting your fall Pinterest board started brings back the magic of that first-day-of-school fresh start feeling. We like to think of seasonal sartorial and hair inspiration as an opportunity to revamp our looks and give ourselves that same kind of clean slate. This season’s instant makeover is more simple than trends of seasons past – the center part and loose waves hack is your secret to instant bombshell status.

Insta-Makeover: Center Part and Loose Waves

The edginess of a center part paired with the softness of loose waves allows you to capture that intersection of masculinity and femininity so many trends inspire as of late. Think floral dresses and combat boots, a flowy midi skirt and classic dad sneakers, a billowing blouse paired with structure jeans.

The formula for this look is pretty simple. You need a rat tail comb for definition and a sea salt spray to give your hair some texture. Reworking your part is a process best executed on freshly washed damp hair. Use the tail end of your comb to draw a new part and let your hair dry. If you’re looking for some extra insurance, grab a hairdryer and a brush. Use these tools to guide your hair in a new direction.

We recommend using Love Beauty Planet Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Salt Spritz Texture Spray to add some body and movement to your hair.

Spray this product on your damp strands and allow them to air dry for maximum texture. Once your hair has dried, you can use a 1-inch curling iron to give your waves some extra definition. Finally, mist your hair with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1. This hairspray gives your hair the texture you want without that dreaded crunchy feeling.

This foolproof combination will have you feeling sexy, edgy and feminine—what could be better?
