Choosing a hairstyle that makes the most of an ombre look is important. After all, if you've gone to the trouble of dying your hair, you might as well show off your new color(s) in the best possible way! Cue tousled waves.

This simple yet very effective hairstyle is full of gorgeous texture, has a distinctly summery vibe (not just because the model in the photo is wearing a sun hat...) and all the movement really helps to highlight two or more contrasting tones.

If your locks are ombre and you haven't tried this style yet, what are you waiting for?

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray
Wide-tooth comb
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray

Step one: Starting with dry or damp hair, apply Tousle Waves Spray evenly from root to tip. Comb your hair through to ensure even coverage - the spray acts as a heat protectant so don't skip this step.

Step two: Take a section of hair, about 2", and twist it. Hold the twisted hair by the ends and blow-dry it completely. Repeat on the rest of your hair.

Step three: Once dried, run your fingers through your hair to break the twists into loosely tousled waves.

Step four: Use a wide-tooth comb to part your hair then run it down through the lengths. This will fix your part in place without compromising any of the texture you just created.

Step five: For extra hold, mist with Fine Control Hairspray to finish.

Happy styling!
