Since cutting more than 10″ off my hair, I’ve been looking for the perfect style. Today, I’m going to share with you how I get a silky, textured lob!

pcWhat you’ll need:
-Shampoo
-Conditioner
-Brush
-Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
-Oil (I use Moroccan Oil)
-Texturizing/Dry Finishing Spray
-Hairspray

STEP ONE: Wash hair. This time around, I tried TRESemmé’s reverse wash shampoo and conditioner*. The idea is that instead of weighing your hair down with conditioner after using shampoo, you reverse the process for more volume and softer hair. I used this the other night on its own without adding any other products and my hair felt so soft and didn’t have any frizz, which is a win in my book! Did I mention it smells amazing?

STEP TWO: Brush out hair. I use this brush to get out all of the tangles and then towel dry my hair.

STEP THREE: Apply texturizing sea salt spray. After my hair has been rung out with a towel, I then spray this texturizing sea salt spray (this spray smells exactly like Hawaii!) throughout the lengths of my hair (be sure not to spray it in your roots otherwise your hair will be greasy). Once my hair has the spray all throughout, I scrunch my hair with a towel. The spray will add some texture to the hair overnight and be perfect in the morning for styling.

STEP FOUR: Go to bed. I take showers at night, so I let my hair air-dry overnight and then it’s ready for styling in the morning!

STEP FIVE: Style. I use a 1″ Hot Tools curling iron and section my hair out by top and bottom. I first do the bottom half of my hair and then move on to the top-half. To make effortless waves, I wind up my hair with the curling iron and once at the root, I pull the curling iron straight down. I don’t leave my hair in the curling iron for any longer than it takes to wind my hair up.

STEP SIX: Apply oil. Once all my hair has cooled off, I apply one pump of Moroccan oil to my fingers and rub it in. Then, I start mid-way down my hair and loosen up the waves dragging the oil through the ends of the hair.

STEP SEVEN: Add texture. I spray the Rusk texture dry finishing spray all throughout the ends of my hair and make sure they are nice and texturized.

STEP EIGHT: Spray it. The last step for me is to spray hairspray the ends of my hair. I’m not a huge hairspray girl, but you don’t want the waves to fall out too much. I focus the hairspray towards the ends of my hair while holding the hairspray a little less than a foot away from my hair.

  • These are such great, high-quality photos Carrie! Really gorgeous. I love loose waves so much, they’re such an easy/gorgeous style. I’m not a hairspray person much either, but I find that when I curl my hair with a clip-less wand vs. anything else they stay for a long time!
