Think of this hairstyle as mermaid waves meets Hollywood waves. It's full of movement, it's smooth, and it's effortlessly chic. If you've made Friday night plans in advance, this hairstyle is the perfect do-all look for heading out straight after work, too.

Styling tip

Spritz your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and curl it with a 1 1/2" curling iron to create big, loose curls. When each piece of hair comes off the iron, clip it up in a loop to cool in order to get long lasting waves that won't fall flat.

2. Long middle parted waves

A sharp center part is a striking detail and when paired with soft, tumbling waves, it creates a classic seventies feel that is perfect for a glam night out look.

Styling tip

After curling your hair, gently brush it through to get smooth, cascading waves, then finish with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for great hold.

3. Half-up

This simple half-up style can be done in seconds and it looks good on everyone. It's essentially just two pieces of hair, one from each side of the face, twisted outwards and pinned at the back, so you could do it en route to wherever you're going if you end up running late!

Styling tip

If your hair is super clean or just a little slippery when styling, mist it with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray beforehand. The dry shampoo formula will help the strands to bind together more easily, giving you more grip.

4. Tousled side sweep

It's casual enough not to seem try hard, and it looks effortlessly cool with a bold lip color.

Styling tip

Add shine and banish flyaways with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.

5. Middle parted mermaid waves
