Poker straight hair
If your hair is naturally straight, blast it dry upside down to add some shape. Then blow-dry the ends smooth for just a few minutes. For a simple up-do with some volume, try the double pony: pull the top half of your hair into a sleek high ponytail. Then pull the loose hair below into a second ponytail directly underneath the first. Use a brush to tease and gently backcomb volume into the top pony so it covers the bobble below, and you’re done!
Thin and wispy hair
Start by washing with Pantene Pro-V Volume & Body Foam Conditioner to boost fine hair. Once your hair is dry, try a deep side parting and sweep hair over the top of your head to the other side to add volume and lift.
If your hair is long, anything from blow-drying to adding in curls can take a lot of effort. Instead, wash your hair before bed and rough blow dry until it’s about three-quarters dry. Scrunch some Pantene Pro-V Perfect Volume Lightweight Mousse through your hair, then loosely braid it before going to sleep. In the morning, release the gentle waves you’ve now created, teasing them out gently with your fingertips. You’re ready to go!
Thick and heavy
If you’re lucky enough to have lots of luscious hair, why not add in a statement fringe? Not many hair types can wear them well, but thick haired girls suit fringes and they have the added benefit of giving you a ready-made look without the fuss of all-over styling.
If you have naturally wild curls, don’t waste precious minutes trying to convince your hair to be straight. Instead, try Pantene Repair and Protect Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your hair healthy, then spritz a bit of sea salt spray into it while wet and let it air dry naturally. Not only will this save you time and effort, but cutting back on all that blow-drying and heat styling will do wonders for the condition of your hair over time.
If you have afro hair, check out Pantene’s new Gold Series, which includes moisture boost shampoo and conditioner, a repair mask, detangling milk, hydrating oil and butter crème. Designed by scientists specifically for afro hair, the range will help you achieve gorgeously nourished, shiny hair.
The bob is having a serious moment – but gone are the days of sleek and polished styles (lucky for busy mums!). Modern-day bobs are all about looking lived in, even messy, so they’re ideal for those with a natural wave to their hair.
The key is to keep it quick and relaxed. Apply some Pantene Pro-V Perfect Volume Lightweight Mousse through damp hair, tip your head upside down and rough dry, scrunching sections of your hair as you go.
If your waves need a boost, take your straightening iron and twist it away from your face and down the shaft of your hair in big sections. Run your fingers through to break up the waves.
