Today is L'Oréal Paris spokesmodel Doutzen Kroes' birthday and, in honor of this, we've got a tutorial for one of her trademark hairstyles. Some might argue that it's so pretty, it's her best hairstyle! We are, of course, talking about her simple tousled beach waves that look great everywhere from the red carpet to the runway and beyond.
While Doutzen - who also happens to be a Victoria's Secret angel - always looks impossibly fantastic, it's actually super easy to recreate her wavy hairstyle for a look that works in the real world. Whether you have a wedding to attend, a date night on the horizon or are just really into easy-chic for every occasion, this 'do won't let you down.
It's also a look that doesn't take up too much time, giving you some extra minutes to work on your makeup/sleep/have a coffee etc. which makes it something of a miracle style!
What you need:
Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray
Step one: If you want to recreate Doutzen's exact look, take a tail comb and define a center part while your hair is still damp. If you want a less uniform look, use your hands to define a vague center or off-center part, whichever you're most comfortable with.
Step two: Apply Tousle Waves Spray evenly, paying special attention to the roots. This will help promote lift and volume. Then, take a section of hair and twist it. Hold on to the twist and blow-dry. Once the twist is dry, finger-comb to break it up into loose waves.
Step three: Repeat step two on the rest of your hair.
Step four: Apply a little more spray and scrunch. For added hold, finish with a generous mist of Bold Control Hairspray and you're done!
It really is that simple to look (kind of) like a supermodel. Thank you for the inspiration and have a very happy birthday, Doutzen!
