How to style naturally straight hair

/ 08.27.2015

Styling naturally straight hair involves a little more than a standard DIY blowout if you want to really make the most of it. Even though stick straight strands often get a bad wrap for lacking volume, there are a couple of ways to create a full-bodied look with a little texture and movement.

When you think of straight hair, more often than not you probably think about a layered cut, but heavy layers can actually end up making the roots look flat and lifeless. Instead, opt for something more structured that allows the hair to fall into place. A classic bob, lob or chic blunt cut with a few layers to frame the face will work much better.

With damp hair, apply a texturizing spray or curling mousse before leaving it to air dry. This will bring out any natural movement, and you can further enhance it with a curling iron once your locks are totally dry.

When blow-drying your hair, scrunch in some volumizing mousse then dry your hair with your head flipped upside down. This will lift the hair at the root, adding height and volume as the hair dries.

To elevate lackluster roots and add volume to second day strands, spritz your hair with dry shampoo. Not only will it absorb excess oil to make the hair look cleaner, it'll add some texture and movement, too, leaving you with a light, airy finish!
