If you have relaxed hair, add a little Jane Carter Condition & Sculpt setting lotion and twist your hair in several two-strand twists from the hairline to the nape of the neck before taking a dip. Once you’re out of the water, let your hair air-dry before removing the twists.

Ponytails are instant glamorizers. The difference between the perfect ponytail and a “phony” tail is the texture and the color you select.

A layered bob allows more versatility in styling. Spritz Ellin LaVar Textures ThermaMist spray throughout the hair to protect it from the heat and add Ellin LaVar Textures InstantShine for a smooth finish.

Keep it simple and easy by razor cutting the crown and tapering the sides. Then wash and wrap the hair and apply Jane Carter Nourish & Shine on the sides and back for added shine.

Layered bangs were enhanced with a track for thickness and color. Use a ceramic flat iron to create this face framing finish.

Go for the gold with warm blond highlights that aren’t too brassy. This short bob works beautifully with Mizani Beyond-Conditioning Creme Permanent Haircolor in Lightest Warm Gold Blonde.

Achieve this look with a large curling iron or by setting hair on large rollers. A bodifying conditioner, like L’Oreal Professional Volume Extreme Conditioner, will give more bounce.

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.

Dress up your bun with a pretty satin headband or vintage barrette.

Give lengthy tresses shape with a blunt cut. Sharp bangs instantly add life to simply styled hair. Use i/m Beauty Nylon Paddle Brush and dab on Soft & Beautiful Moisturizing Complex to keep flyaways grounded for good.
