1. Fun & Flirty
-To get this flirty look, apply a texture spray to damp hair. -Roughly blow-dry, working hair through your hands.
-Take a mini flat iron and straighten sections for definition and shine.
2. Teased Tendrils
-A roughed-up, teased-out texture is so sock-hop-meets-punk-rock. Spray hair with hair spray and backcomb the back section.
-Pull a few pieces forward to frame your face. Twirl around your fingers for a tendril-ish effect.
-Throw a few haphazard bobby pins in to keep the messy, quickie beehive texture.

-For a modern-looking bob, keep hair well-moisturized and massage your scalp gently even when you don't wash your hair.
-Place small sections of hair into large rollers and sit under a drying hood.
-When your hair is nearly dry, remove the rollers and blow-dry on a very low heat.
-Flat iron your bangs for the finishing touch.
4. Va-va-voom Volume
-First thing's first: Get shiny sideswept bangs. Run a styling cream through and dry immediately, making sure you pull the brush down and to the side as you go, training the bangs to stay put.
-Comb an anti-frizz through your hair (use a brush to make sure you really distribute the product).
-Blow-dry sections in back with a round brush to smooth out the look. Then, dry the front pieces by combing them through with your fingers so you get that great, sexy wave.
