Hey, curl-friend!

1. Make your curls stand out.

Want to celebrate the beauty of your curls with a friend? Grab her and find a fun backdrop to take your picture-perfect selfie.

3. Catch the light on your hair.

There’s nothing wrong with a good indoor selfie but make sure your lighting is on point. If you’re lucky to have natural light, it’s the perfect opportunity to put your sleek, and shiny straight hair on full display. No need to add more product to your hair for shine, allow the sunshine to beam on your strands. However, if you want to tame any stray hairs before taking your picture, spray with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 to smooth frizz and flyaways.

4. Work your second-day hair.

Lived-in waves are just as good as freshly defined waves. Prep your hair with a dry shampoo like Love Beauty and Planet Radical Refresher Citrus Peel Uplifting Dry Shampoo to remove any excess grease before taking your selfie. No one has to know that you really didn’t wake up this way.
