NYFW Street Style Hair Trend: Texture Play Hairstyles

It's all about fun texture this season. 

Another day, another hair trend. This time it’s a look many of us have come to love as it’s one of the most effortless ways to style your hair whether you’re in a hurry or intentionally going for the look. As the fall season hits, when it comes to our wardrobe, we transition from light weight fabrics to heavier knits and textured pieces. In terms of our hair, many of us transition from updos that were perfect for the summer heat, to fun and textured hairstyles for the fall season. From short air-dried waves to long textured wash and go’s, the most stylish hairstyles for the fall season are those that pile on texture and embrace every ounce of frizz.

1. The Textured Fro Hawk

For this style, the bigger, the absolute better. The key is finding products that helps with curl definition and volume. Wash hair with TRESemmé Flawless Curls Shampoo and Conditioner.

2. The Stretched Textured Wash and Go

This look is ideal for those that see shrinkage as a struggle. After washing your curls, hold the ends of your hair taught while applying your blowdryer from root to mid shaft of your hair to stretch your curls. Another easy method is the banding method. By section, apply hair ties on your hair from the root to ends, then allow your hair to dry before removing.

3. Textured Loose Curls

This is the perfect carefree style for busy mornings.  Wash hair the night before, detangle, then allow your hair to air-dry until its about 80% dry. Apply Dove Absolute Curls Supreme Creme Serum all over your hair to add shine and moisture then gather your hair into a low loose bun. The bun will help enhance the loose effect overnight. In the morning, release your hair, fluff and go!
