2. Undone Hair

Unfinished hairstyles add a nice elevated and grungy feel to any look. Less defined spiraled waves and more lived-in textures are a total vibe and so easy to do. Backcombing your strands after styling is an easy way to achieve the look.

Since “glass hair” is a buzzword at the moment and all, we do expect to see some shiny heads out and about. Add shine to your style with the help of a lightweight shine spray like Bed Head By TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hairspray.

4. Pinned Up Curls

During the summer seasons, many naturally curly gals opted for wash and go styles and big ‘fros. As weather approaches, cute pinned up curly styles seem to be the look of choice. Whether it’s pinning hair up into a frohawk, or using bobby pins to accessorize your curls.
