Styling tricks

1/ Side swipe

If your hair is behaving strangely, try flipping it all over to one side. It's a simple trick that will change up your style and hide any dirty roots at the same time. Once flipped, you can gather your mane into a side braid, loose pony or pin it back into a low knot.

Whatever style you go for, complete the look with a generous mist of L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray to keep frizz at bay and give you long-lasting, flexible hold.

2/ Get glossy

If flyaways are the problem, go for something sleek. A tight ballerina bun or elegant low pony are great, easy options.

Before putting your hair up, spray it all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to instantly eliminate flyways and add shine.

3/ Embrace the mess

This season is all about disheveled beauty, so why not embrace your misbehaving mop with a textured, volume-filled style? With a little teasing and a few bobby pins you can create a style that looks both deliberate AND chic!

To add height and fullness, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray throughout. Tease with a fine-tooth comb or massage with your fingers to elevate your style.

What do you think? How will you master your mane?
