6 Avant Garde Hairstyles for Your Next Photoshoot
1. “Bird’s Nest” Updo
We’re calling this one the bird’s nest because of its messy texture and extreme volume. This style serves drama and can be created haphazardly. For this ‘do, hairspray is going to be your best friend. Use a healthy amount of Bed Head by TIGI Hard Head Hairspray. This hairspray dries instantly so you can layer it on as you build up “the nest.”
2. Bold Bangs
Create bangs that take your look to the next level. You can style these bangs by parting your hair in the middle of your head and pulling the section closer to your face forward to create faux bangs. You can also add in shorter extensions for volume and to create the illusion that you always rock this style.
3. Faux Roller Curlers
This style is totally fab, it gives off a ’50s” roller curlers before bed” vintage aesthetic but amped up and extra glam. When pinning your hair up into the curl, add in Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel to give extra hold to your curls, prevent any frizz, and add shine.
4. The Tease
This hairstyle is simple to create but can take a while to perfect. The goal of this avant-garde look is to tease, tease, tease, and then tease some more. This style might require hair extensions if you are going for an over-dramatic look. Take your brush and begin to tease, you can even take your front layers and keep them straight to frame your face and contrast the extra-ness of your tease.
5. The Wet Look
A wet and glossy finish is perfect for a last minute, avant garde photoshoot. This look is incredibly easy to achieve and looks bold and sexy in photos. Achieve this wet look by applying a generous amount of Suave Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil throughout your hair, then comb through with your fingers to separate your strands.
6. Brushed Out Curls
Brushed out curls add so much drama to any look and will take any avant garde hairstyle to the next level. Use a curler to get the curl size you want, then use a paddle brush over your styled curls to add volume and body.
