For loose curls, use a large barrel curling iron and curl larger two inch sections all the way around your hair.

4. Swept Back Pixie

Pixie haircuts are always a good idea. If you’ve got a pixie cut, switch up your style by changing the direction in which your hair falls. Styling a pixie backwards gives an instant glamorous effect. There are two different ways to get this style depending on the length of your pixie. For the super short cuts, you can blow-dry your hair backwards until it is totally dry and set. If you have a little more hair to work with, use a thin flat iron and twist your hair away from your face. Either way, to keep your style set for the big event use some of the Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Pump Hold Hairspray.
