Piecey texture is the stuff a lot of hairstyle dreams are made of, especially for everyone who is still dreaming of warmer spring weather. It creates a relaxed yet sultry look that can either coordinate with a casual ensemble or contrast with something a little sharper for work or a night out. With naturally quite straight, fine hair, however, getting the perfect piecey texture can seem more difficult than it needs to be.

Fortunately, there are a few things that can make achieving this look super easy!

The cut

A great piecey hairstyle is easiest to achieve with a layered haircut. Lots of small layers help the hair to retain plenty of body, without appearing weighed down. The layers don't have to be radically long or short. You just need a few different lengths to work with as the contrast is what will make the hair look piecey once styling gum is applied, especially on the ends.

The product

Low-shine or matte styling products with strong hold are perfect for creating piecey hairstyles. Advanced Hairstyle TXT Deconstructing Gum will enhance natural shine, keep your hair where you want it, and look totally natural. It doesn't dry hard either so you can reshape your locks during the day/night, too.

The technique

When applying Deconstructing Gum, start small. Place a minimal amount on your fingertips and rub your hands together, then run your fingers through the lengths of your hair – start at the bottom and work your way up. Twist and tousle small individual sections, and finger-comb to give the hair a slightly disheveled, unkempt feel.

Top tip - Apply more gum if you need it, but be careful to use only the bare minimum; you don't want to overload your hair!

Et voilà, your new piecey 'do is complete!
