A unique touch is perfect for date night!

Maybe a stroll in the park on a cool summer night is more up your alley for date night. Show off your shoulder-grazing length by adding a unique unicorn braid. Start by taking three pieces of hair at the crown of your head and begin doing a dutch braid, crossing pieces under the middle section instead of over. Once you reach the middle of the back of your head, secure the braid with a hair elastic. To make sure everything stays in place, spray TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Smooth Hold Level 2 Hair Spray all over the braid. We love this hair spray because it will lock everything in place without making your hair feel crunchy.

6. Glamorous Curls

Wear this style to a jazz concert or have your curls blowing with the wind while you’re cruising around town. Be sure to use some mousse, like Suave Extra Hold Shaping Mousse to help you achieve full, bouncy curls.
