1. The Party Wash and Go Hairstyle

Go girl, it’s your birthday! Birthday or not, turn a wash and go hairstyle into a fancy look with the help of a bold lip and dressy jewelry pieces. To achieve the hairstyle, wash hair with TRESemmé Flawless Curls Shampoo and condition with TRESemmé Flawless Curls Conditioner to help detangle hair and frame frizz while cleansing and conditioning. Use TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel to smooth throughout small sections of your hair, then diffuse to dry it. Once you’re finished with the drying process, use an afro pick (or your fingers) to pluck the roots of your hair for volume. And for the record, if it is your birthday, it’ll never hurt to rock a cute party hat!

2. The Festive Poof

If you’re into updos with massive volume and loads of texture, try your hand at this simple poof hairstyle. Prep clean hair with a styling oil, like Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oilthen slide a large elastic hairband over your hair. Use hairpins to fasten the hair band and prevent it from sliding. Then use your hands to spread out your curlicues and to add volume. Throw on a fancy party number and you’re ready for a night of fun. If you’re rocking this style to the office opt for a more work-friendly outfit.

3. The Disco Fringe Updo

The perfect weekend night out updo for natural hair. Pair it up with a fun discotheque-inspired makeup look for an 80s themed party or forgo the makeup and opt for a clean and classy day look if you’re wearing it just to hang out. To recreate, section off your bangs with a hair clip, then use a boar bristle brush to gather the back of your hair into a high ponytail (a la the pineapple ponytail method). Release your bangs, fluff, set with a shine spray, like Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hairsprayand you’re good to go.
