No-slick zone.

While glossy, sleek and shiny hairstyles are having a resurgence, there are many who don’t want to join in on this trend. Non-greasy styles are just as good. Think: undone shags, messy lobs and frizzy hairstyles that are, of course, frizzy on purpose.

None of the aforementioned styles involve or need a dose of shine in order to stand out. In fact, the grease-less and matte texture is what makes the look. Read on to find out the styling products you need to achieve the non-greasy hairstyles you love.

2. Matte Styling Cream

If you’re looking for a strong hold without the satiny finish, this waxy formula is your best bet. Use Bed Head by TIGI Manipulator Matte Cream when wet or dry styling for a strong hold and a matte finish. We love this wax for sleek and pulled back pixie cuts or even low bun styles.

3. Texturizing Paste

Forget diffusing your hair. Air-dry and use this paste to create styles like undone shags to mold your hair into the shape you fancy. To apply, scoop a finger-tip amount of Bed Head by TIGI Hard to Get Texturizing Paste from the jar, work it through your hands and distribute into your hair. Use your hands to separate and define pieces of hair until you get your desired look.
