I recently spoke to hair stylist Karla Perea and asked her to give me some quick tips on how to rock you hair naturally
This look is about loving your own natural texture and working with it—not against it. With natural curls there are always pieces that are straighter than the other. To make curls to hold their shape, prep hair with a cream such as Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer and blow-dry hair with a diffuser and voila
These piecey waves manage to be pretty and messy. To get started, apply a baseball-size mound of Redken Spray Foam to dry hair, coating it from the roots to the ends until it all feels saturated. Blow-dry the hair roughly until the foam is fully absorbed, then wind sections around a one-inch curling iron, starting at midlength and leaving the bottom free. Make the ends sharp by running a flatiron over them.
Flip your head upside down, sprits your roots with a light-hold hair spray, and think happy thoughts for about 30 seconds. It takes that long for hair spray to dry and set a style. When you flip your head back up, your roots will have a soft, airy texture and plenty of height.
GROWING IT OUT
Let that short layered pixie hair grow out. For a more natural styling look try using Kerastase Nutritive serum on towel dried hair, groom into place with fingers then use your blow dryer with its diffuser to build up a little volume and create natural movement.
VOLUME IS YOUR BFF
Having a lazy hair day? Embrace the volume, Leave it as is.
Match Bare tresses with a bare face. Accentuate the look with a natural face, to really achieve an overall natual look .
Fly aways are not always a bad thing specially when trying to achieve a natural look. Leave them alone and embrace every single one. Let your long straight hair air dry and watch the flyaways start to do their own thing. Bring yourself back to your carefree childhood days with this look.
