Whether it’s loose waves or subtle crimps, the edge in Fall’s hair trends is in its touch and feel. Zang Toi gave new meaning to the term “crowning glory” where ringlets were placed high atop the head like a halo. The key is to not aim for perfection. After curling, use your fingers to separate the curls for a more natural look. A spritz of hairspray will do the trick in securing it.
If you’re bored with your long straight hair, then the crimping as seen at Ruffian is the thing for you. Focusing from the midsection downwards, the subtle crimps instantly give volume and shape to limp locks. Got more time on hand?
