Rule #1: Say Sayonara to Stiff Styles
"Take a look at today's it girls: Cameron Diaz, Kate Moss, Drew Barrymore," says Harry Josh, a celebrity stylist and Suave spokesperson. "They always leave their hair loose, wavy and unstyled, even when they're on the red carpet draped in Dior. They wouldn't go near a bottle of hairspray." In other words, kick the can: A softer, less traditionally "finished" 'do is sexiest now. For tantalizingly tousled tresses in a flash, slick a bit of gel or creme (if your hair is thick) through freshly washed locks and allow to air-dry. (Try Suave Naturals Aloe Vera Extra Hold Anti-Frizz Smoothing Gel or L'Oréal Professionnel Freshstyle Featherweightcreme.) Don't brush or touch hair while it's drying, or you'll induce frizz. If you feel that your hair lacks definition when dry, wrap ends in small sections around a medium-barrel curling iron for a few seconds each.
