Loose spirals cascading in a seemingly haphazard fashion create an ageless result. This particular example is mousy brown with contrasting ash streaks but any color or combination would be equally delightful. Ladies of a certain age might not get away with it but violets, lilacs and especially denim dyes would be perfect for the young girl about town. Probably a touch on the short side for an effective ombre but balayage is less about transition and more about strategic splodges that blend at all points, not just the ends. Ombre isn't impossible at this length it's simply much more likely to shine with more length to allow the transformation to be gradual rather than a distinct, abrupt line.
Ride the Keratin Waves.
Waves seem to just flow in this design. With the messy part and the long bangs, this is perfect for work or playing on the weekends. Notice how her eyes shine! Another winner for waves! Adding to the fun here is a super conservative leopard print sweater which only adds to the charm. Tossed and flipped, this freestyle lets your curls make up your mind for you! Not for those with very straight locks, this needs natural texture to pull off.
Chic, barely contained energy is the theme of the waves here. Try adding a headband or a ribbon sash for a slightly more dramatic result. Having this kind of style, with everything swept away from the face is a great opportunity to play up your eyes as we notice on the model. We love this style because it creates the illusion that you TRIED to tame yourself, but you are just breaking free. Who wouldn't want self-expression like that?!
Frizz can hamper luscious curls that come naturally, if you insist on curls, this is probably the way to go. Avoid frizz and flyaway's, a shag cut creates all-over volume and loosens up any natural curls that you may have been hiding under long hair. Finger blow-dry while adding bursts of spray.
Flicked and Flopped
Almost a grooved effect on the flicked and flopped edge of the longer front section of this sloppy undercut. Throw in a touch of gel or putty, creating a ruffled, crispy texture.
Kristen Stewart once sported a similar design in a darker color. Adventurous if a bit impractical.
Celebrities are choosing this sort of thing for the red carpet this year and you can too! This short and pin curled combination gets a perk from a dash of vintage! Retro gives added dimension and interest to an otherwise simplistic idea.
Golden and Hot.
You'll love the easy-to-copy fashion sense as much as we do without a doubt! To duplicate this yourself, shampoo and condition your natural texture. Add a leave-in conditioner to help relax and smooth out your curls, giving waves as shown in the picture. Amplify volume at the roots with holding spray. We'd like to draw special attention to one tiny lock that nearly touches the eye on the left.
Class style is a cinch to copy with hardly any work. "Adding gel while your hair is still damp is the secret," our go-to hair expert told us. The off the forehead look is helped along with a touch of smoothing cream applied at the hairline to hold it back. We are so glad to see freedom of curls again! We see the proof in this no-fuss mass that is very flattering and easy to maintain.
Especially perfect for oblong faces, this will have them drooling over you for sure! Add wild coils and an ultra-serious wardrobe and watch them combine to create a statement that truly shows that you mean business. Upscaled curls are first pinned back, then loosened forward to create this dynamic finish. Of course, with less serious clothing and a smile it would look good too, but the dominatrix feel is refreshing.
Create your own take on this shock of fifties revival this spring! Layers upon layers are the key to unlocking the flow. Would be awesome with natural curls, it also looks great on man-made, as we see here. The options are endless as you imagine adding pretty flowered pins or bunches of red highlights to this glam effect. Locks that graze the neck are particularly stunning. Can't wait to give this one a try?
The near chin-length adds a whimsical touch to this fantastic sandy design! Artistically brings out the best in both straight and curves! This fantastic result maximizes your natural texture in the back while tolerating straighter bangs. This high-on-style creation is best worn by women with diamond-shaped faces since the bangs and longs wisps create symmetry and balance. A stunningly bold first impression!
Featuring compact coils left not totally finished at the ends, contributing to a perky, fun statement. We love the flexibility and sway that this offers, and it's a great option if you're the 'always on the go,' type of girl. Create this for yourself by using a thick curling iron and wrapping the ends back into the iron. Waved Bangs add a splash of flare to this interesting idea. Fling in a pair of Audrey Hepburn shades to boot.
Make sure you have a hand full of pins and plenty of hairspray to help you along here! Natural curls adapt well to this rolling and pinning. Start with long vertical chunks and roll them towards the scalp to create this fantastic finish that could be straight out of "Pride and Prejudice". Make sure to give it a finish by pinning all of your hair up off of the neck, as we see here.
The faux finger wave in the fringe is created using simple bobby pins tucked out of sight. The tight rings in the back are helped along using styling cream and a curling iron. If you want a different look for your next date night, give this retro-inspired look a chance. We think it looks great! Superb for a night on the town!
