Texturize It-
Great for: Short hair

If your naturally straight hair is being stubborn, Rhys suggests running a flatiron over the ends to make them look sharp; then use a styling wax (try Davines Invisible Paste, $20.50) to define ends and add more texture. Set with hairspray.

Have wavy hair? Add a pea-sized amount of grooming cream (try Bumble and bumble Grooming Creme, $26) to the ends to bring out more wave. Tip: For more drama, pin your hair to the side with a glam barrette.

What's going on?
