Texture gives you major cool girl points.

Cool girl texture? What’s that? This is a term we use to describe women with hair full of beautiful texture they embrace. It’s not everyone that loves their natural hair texture, or looks forward to creating texture in their styles to enhance the look. We’re here to show you it’s okay to try new things.

Below we rounded up some of our favorite textured looks. Read on to learn how you can quickly achieve the one that is right for you:

1. Natural Hair

Whether you have loose 3c curls or fall anywhere in the type 4 range, there’s a way to embrace your curly hair and get the cool girl texture you want. This afro, wash and go style is one of the best ways to put your curls on full display. Style hair using Suave Professionals Curl Defining Cream to enhance your natural curl pattern. If you want, you can also use this to create twist out styles.

2. Corkscrew Curls

Curls have more fun when the texture is on point. Create with a hair wand, or embrace your natural loose curly texture. The key to this style is making sure the frizz works in your favor.

3. Razored Cuts

Fine, and thin hair can get texture too with cuts with a razored effect. First, its all about making sure you are utilizing a dry shampoo. A dry shampoo helps keep grease at bay. The greasier your hair, the more the strands clump together and the thinner it looks. Refresh hair with a volumizing dry shampoo like Love Beauty and Planet Volume and Bounty Juicy Grapefruit Day 2 Dry Shampoo and tease hair using our teasing technique.

When using heat styling tools, prep hair with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray for optimum heat protection.
