Taming longer curly or wavy haircuts can seem more difficult than it needs to be. There are a lot of guys out there who just throw on their favorite hat every morning, rather than styling their hair (often because they don't wake up in time... but still) but getting your waves to look just how you want them is actually really easy when you know how.
The key to making a longer textured style work is investing in a product that gets the job done with minimal hassle. You need something that is easy to work with and gives the desired finish.
When styling your hair, you want to make the most of all that natural movement without letting it overwhelm your face. Emphasize the waves, just keep them out of your eyes and take care not to overload the hair with product.
Step one: Take a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum and warm it. Scoop it out with your fingertips and rub your hands together.
Step two: In quick, sweeping motions, work the gum back through all of your hair evenly. Add more as needed and stop once you have just enough hold to keep individual sections back off your face. In this instance, less really is more.
Step three: Wind sections of hair around your index finger all over your head to define individual curls. Finger-comb and scrunch the curls afterward to keep them natural-looking. You can also twist small sections then break them up to create a tousled, piecey texture.
Step four: Shape the hair with your hands however you want it. For extra volume, massage the roots then gently smooth over the top.
