The easiest, most affordable way to make a statement is with a bold hairstyle and we suggest having more than one in your repertoire so you can shift from sleek and elegant to edgy and sexy, depending on the occasion. In this episode, Herbal Essences celebrity stylist Charles Baker Strahan gives us step-by-step instructions for two of the hottest looks going in young Hollywood right now. Take a look, and let us know which one you’d choose.
If you look at shots of stars on the red carpet or models on the runway the hair looks of choice are either glamorous updos or tousled waves. Herbal Essences celebrity stylist Charles Baker Strahan has easy instructions for two attention-getting versions of both.
The pinned-down ponytail
If you’re looking to put the focus on your eyes, this elegant and mod style is a fantastic option. Start by giving your hair a spritz of heat-protection spray, then straighten with a flat iron. Apply antifrizz cream to smooth out strands even more. Pull the hair back into a high ponytail. Wrap the base of the ponytail with a thin section of hair, and use a pin to secure. Flip the ponytail forward, and use two pins to anchor it to the crown. Then bend the tail over on itself and pin down using a hair ornament or a barrette.
Sophisticated, sexy waves
This look can work for a casual situation or be glammed up for a night out. First, create soft waves with a large-barrel curling iron. Twist each wave into a tight pile, and secure them with a clip to set. When they’ve cooled, flip your head forward and brush the waves out. Amp up the definition with a texturizing wax and you’re done.
