Polished and pretty

Styling your hair into smooth, polished waves is a surefire way to look put together, whatever the occasion.

1/ How to do it

Step 1: Spray dry hair with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray then use a 1 1/2" curling iron to curl the lengths of your hair.

Step 2: When each piece of hair comes off the iron, pool it in your palm, spray with hairspray, then clip it up to cool.

Step 3: Once all of your hair has been curled and cooled, let it down, gently brush it through and re-spray all over with hairspray to finish.

Magically mussed

For a more natural, bohemian look, try some loose waves. They can be dressed up or down as needed and they look good on everybody.

2/ How to do it

Step 1: Spray damp or dry hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray then blow-dry in large twisted chunks.

Step 2: Once dried, shake your fingers through your hair and part it with a wide-tooth comb.

Step 3: Scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends for added texture then finish with hairspray.

That's it!
