3. Wavy Volume

We mentioned that you’ll cut your styling routine (at least) in half, but we think you’ll be amazed by how quickly you can get your hair done. Use a hair straightener to create soft waves for an extra voluminous look. Just don’t forget to protect your strands! Spray Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist before styling to keep your hair healthy and strong.

4. Play With Color

If you’re ready to make two bold changes at once, then you should consider dyeing your hair at the same time you cut it. A pinkish silvery hue will make a major statement.
