Finally, pin the style in place with a bobby pin and secure it with a texture spray if you want to add more volume.

Previously, a top hairstylist revealed the five bad hair habits she has seen in years of treating clients and how to correct them.
Faith Williams, from Brisbane, said she has ‘seen it all’ when it comes to people’s hair, and often men and women develop bad habits that they don’t realize cause long-term damage .
The first bad habit Faith listed is to avoid regular cuts because you want to “grow” your hair.
“If I had a dollar every time someone thought about it, I would win,” Faith told Daily Mail Australia.
“When you have split ends, they continually divide higher up the hair shaft, leaving you with fine, wispy ends that will eventually break.”
The second bad habit to remember if you ever use a hair dryer, straightener, or heater is that you have to use a heat protector.
“Heat can be one of the worst things we can do to our hair, but let’s face it, we all love a good curl or straightening,” Faith said.
“Hot tools dry out your hair, which can lead to a lot of split ends, as well as discoloration and discoloration of your toner. “
The hairstylist said using a heat protector is like “using sunscreen when you go out in the sun.”
“This minimizes damage to your hair from hot tools, but should also protect your strands from sun damage, including harmful UVA and UVB rays,” she said.
“The thermal protector creates a barrier, trapping moisture and helping to smooth the cuticle and fight frizz.”

If you’ve fallen into the trap of washing your hair every day because you think it will get greasy, it’s time to think again.
“You might like that feeling of frequent washing, but it’s not always a good thing,” Faith said.
“This dries out both your hair and your scalp, your hair will usually start to overproduce natural oils to compensate for washing your hair so much, and you will still feel like it is oily: a loss scenario. and loss “.
Dry shampoo is your savior here. It will allow you to get extra days from your “dirty” hair
Finally, if you’re someone who pays a lot of money at the salon to get your hair done, but you don’t follow up at home with the right items, you need to stop.
“When you go lighter, you really have to make sure that you are using the right combination of strengthening treatments and that you also add extra hydration into the hair, like a leave-in moisturizer,” Faith said.
“Add a leave-in moisturizer to your hair care routine when you step out of the shower and have freshly washed your hair. ”
