Who says bangs can’t be edgy? Shanel defies that assumption perfectly with this blunt-edge asymmetrical bang that easily shaped with the CHI ceramic flat iron and maintained by wrapping at night.

Glamorous hair doesn’t have to be time-consuming—a long, basic bob can take you there. Wrap hair at night and undo it just before you’re ready to walk out the door. Style it with a rake comb or paddle brush. Use a large-barrel iron on a cool setting to create cute flips.

Large, defined, springy curls created with a good old-fashioned roller set. Make sure every inch of the hair is dry before releasing the rollers and don’t forget to apply a good mositurizer like Mizani Moisterfuse Moisturizing Conditioner.

Loose curls are excellent for those who prefer a look that doesn’t scream “salon.” You can achieve the allure of touchable hair with a medium-barrel curling iron and hair spray.

After sectioning off a bang, brush the top portion bacj with a hard-bristle brush and apply SoftSheen Carson Megahertz Hi: Shine Gel Pomade to smooth the sides. Secure the hair in a elastic band, then repeat the process on the lower ponytail.

Avoid overuse of flat irons and megawatt blow dryers, especially when the weather heats up. Stregthen hair from the inside out with essential vitamins and minerals with supplements like Perfectil Tablets.

The trick to achieving these waves is the direction of the roller set—every strand needs to be curled upward, from the nape toward the face. A soft bristle brush will unite your strands to form one curvy mass.
