Hit Refresh With These 3 Hairstyles

With the new year momentum still pushing us through February, we are thinking through the attainable ways in which we can refresh our look this spring. Our findings? We discovered three foolproof hairstyles for all our moods that aren’t too difficult to master. Follow along for tips on how you can create them yourself and the tools to help you get there.

Undone Waves 

There are few better looks than those that appear effortless yet polished, like undone waves. They're a crowd favorite and work on almost all hair lengths. Here are a few pointers to consider for your own attempt at undone waves. First, make your hair manageable. We suggest the R+Co Waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion for softer, glossier hair that will be easier to style. Next, grab your curling iron or wand and pull away small sections of your hair. A great tactic for amplifying texture and movement in the hair is by changing the direction in which you are bending it—alternate between forward and backward facing waves. Pro tip: avoid curling all the way to the bottom by keeping the last two or so inches of hair straight. This will help to create an “undone” look. Finally, run your fingers through your finished waves. If they are slightly more curly than you had hoped, don’t be afraid to comb through with a brush. Complete the look with a little extra moisture cream on your ends for added shine. 

Sleek and Straight

Straight hair will always be in style, no matter the season. Give the evergreen ‘do a spring-inspired refresh with these quick tips. Post shower, while your hair is still damp, run some moisture through your mane. The R+Co Waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion helps to add moisture and primes the hair for heat styling. Second, you can either blow dry or, if you have more time, let it air dry. Either way, make sure your hair is completely dry before you begin using a straightening iron. While you are straightening, we suggest curling the bottom tips of your hair under. Not only does this make the hair look more polished, it also helps even the most damaged hair appear healthier. 

Slicked Back Ponytail or Bun

Whether you’re trying to achieve a professional look or you’re running on day three of dry shampoo—slicked back ponytails and buns have been deemed as it-girl hairstyles (especially when paired with gold jewelry). The best way to make this ‘do work for you? Prep your locks well in advance. Apply some R+Co Waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion after the shower to cut the frizz before it starts. Once you are ready to tie up your hair, apply the lotion to any remaining flyaways—this trick works on both damp and dry hair!
