You can watch the following 7 video tutorials, choose one and let your hair do the flirting!
These are my most frequently used hair products and tools. Therefore, I recommend them for creating the hair styles in the below tutorial videos. You can opt for alternatives with similar functions (texturizing, volumizing, taming and so on), but I think many women will find life-changing products from the list of my current favorites:
Color Wow Dream Coat, for shine pre-blowout.
I love to spray this on wet hair before a blowout. I like to use this product if I want to achieve a sleek look in which I want my hair to appear glossy and shiny. This is great for those who have dull hair and want more of a shine to their hair.
Totalee Mist, for volume and texture pre-blowout.
This product is great for those who have slippery hair and won’t hold a curl. I spray this product in before the blowout, and it adds grit and texture to the hair, making the curls last a lot longer. This product is super lightweight, as well! It does not feel sticky at all.
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, for volume and texture.
Who doesn’t love a good texture spray? This is my holy grail. I use this after I curl my hair. I spray this throughout my hair, and it brings it to life. This spray adds volume and texture to give it more of a lived-in look than a regular polished look.
The Dry Bar Triple Sec, for texture and grit.
This is also a cheaper option for a texture spray, which I love as well. This one gives my hair texture and an airy feeling, making my curls look effortless.
The Ouai Dry Shampoo, for volume.
Aside from how great this product smells, I love how well this adds volume to my hair. It just gives it that extra oomph, along with absorbing oils from the hair so it makes the look last longer without getting oily.
The Ouai Matte Pomade, for sleek looks and flyaways.
Love this for any type of sleek ponies, buns, braids, etc. This product is matte, so it does not make your hair look super wet/oily.
Oribe Free Styler Hairspray, a working hairspray for a flexible hold.
This is a great hair spray for flexible hold. It still adds hold, but it is not sticky, unfortunately.
CHI Farouk Royal Treatment Rapid Shine, a lightweight spray for gloss and shine.
Love this product for my sleek looks. After I straighten my hair, I like to spray this all over to give my hair that extra shine and gloss.
These hairstyles are my lifesavers! I believe every woman should master a couple of special hairstyles for special days…. or nights. Enjoy playing with your hair and learning new hair-styling secrets!
I love this hair style because it is super easy to do, yet super cute to wear to festivals, events, etc.
A little edgier than the regular beach waves, this cute party hairstyle is also great for basically any kind of party.
I love this look because it is versatile, you can dress it up or dress it down, and it will go with pretty much any type of event. This hair style is perfect for when you are going out to an event, such as a wedding, date night, holiday party, or even just a night out with some girlfriends.
When you’re exploring a summer festival, and on your Day 2 in the camping tents, I totally feel you. All you need is this hairstyle. It is perfect when you don’t have access to an outlet but still want to do something cute with your 2nd-day hair. This is also great for when you are camping, at a lake, anything outdoors, this cute party hairstyle will come through!
Oh, who doesn’t love a good pony! Ponies can be worn literally anywhere! If you are going to a special event and want hair away from the face, just do a cute snatched pony. Or, going to the gym and want to still look cute? Wear a cute pony. It’s easy to do and can be worn for any type of occasion.
This look is great if you want to show that you put a little more extra effort in your hair. It is more of a glamorous curl and is great for special events, such as a wedding, red-carpet event, date night, etc.
Who doesn’t love the beach waves!? This is my favorite look because I love to wear this as my everyday hairstyle. It is an effortless look that can be worn to work, the beach, any laid-back event, etc. It’s easy to do because, for this look, you don’t have to worry too much about perfecting the curls. Once everything is brushed out, it all comes together as an undone look, which I love.
