Give hair some volume.

Use a small, rounded brush to brush your hair back while blowdrying it. This way, you start off with more volume. Your hair then becomes nice and fluffy—perfect for styling!

Make those Korean waves.

Part your hair into left and right sections, with more strands on one side for an asymmetrical look. Take a small section of your hair, and roll it backward with your small rounded brush while blowdrying it. Create Korean waves by repeating this on all sections of your hair. 

#HairHack: apply styling putty on your hair to make the waves last longer. Try using Dove Men+Care Control Gel
