L'Oréal Paris spokesperson, model and Victoria's Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes knows a thing or two about using her hair to it's full potential. One of her best styles happens to be one of her simplest: tousled waves.

The loose curls show off the many different tones without any complicated styling methods.
Get the look: Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray by L'Oréal Paris evenly throughout. Take a large section and twist it then blow-dry while holding onto the ends. Leave the large twisted piece of hair alone once it's all dry and repeat this drying method on the rest of your locks. When you're done, shake your fingers through your hair and fix with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
Blake Lively is another great source of blonde hairstyle inspiration, as her gorgeous fishtail proves. The L'Oréal Paris spokesperson is very adept when it comes to all kinds of pretty plaits but this is definitely one of her best efforts, not least because it's so easy to imitate!
Get the look: Brush your hair through then part it messily on one side. Gather it all over one shoulder and shake your bangs loose. If you don't have bangs, leave some other pieces loose at the front to frame your face. Split your hair in half then fishtail braid it all the way to the ends. Secure with a small hair tie then finish with a mist of Bold Control Hairspray.
Just like a wavy look, a loose, textured updo is another great way to showcase the multi-tonal beauty of strawberry blonde hair. This simple side-swept style is easy to style and, like a little black dress, it goes with everything.
Get the look: Part your hair on your favorite side then comb it through. Gather it all on one side and tie it into a low side ponytail. As you do this, make sure you let some hair fall loose at the front, using bobby pins to pin down any major pieces that fall out. Loosely twist the pony into a bun and pin. Again, spray with Bold Control Hairspray and you're done!
Pretty as a princess
If you want a hairstyle that's as pretty as it is practical, a braided headband is just what you need. It keeps your hair off your face, leaving you with the option to put the rest of it up into a pony or bun, or just leave it down.
Get the look: Part your hair in the middle with a tail comb then braid a small piece from behind each ear. When you reach the ends, secure each braid with a small hair tie then pull them up over your head to form the band. Secure with bobby pins and finish with Bold Control Hairspray.
