Once you have the entire area of your head in question tightly curled, part, clip to the preferred side and begin to blow dry on medium heat to set the part while using your fingers to scrunch and break up the unwanted curls. Complete using finishing spray, removing the part. Clip and once again scrunch. What you need: If you're curly. Mousse or wax, dryer plus diffuser, defrizzing spray, lotion, or serum, and finishing spray. If your locks are straight.

Blow dry in sections starting from the bottom. Use a small paddle brush for the bottom part. As you move up sections, begin using a round brush. Using a round brush, pull sections from the root perpendicular to the scalp and work the blow dryer over it.

To get the color correct but causing the least amount of damage (more likely if you're starting from a dark color) going to a professional will give the best results. Go to a stylist who specializes in coloring. Maintenance is key and requires unwavering attention, using a purple/blue toning shampoo and conditioner is essential to protect the tone. If you need to mollycoddle your crowning glory for any aiments, quirks or general willfulness, alternate with your normal regime. Don't be afraid to splash out on a toning session (not as expensive as an initial color, and you know it'll get done correctly), or if you're all about the DIY, purchase toner and a low volume developer from a beauty supply store.

When blow drying, use a paddle brush. Once dry use fingers to distribute a very small amount of wax to the ends. Then section off starting at the bottom and work up. Using a paddle brush, blow dry each section in the direction you'd like it to set. Resection and work up, use a flat iron on each individual section. Employ gentle strokes and turn the iron outward for the pieces you would like to stick out. Use a light finishing spray.
Maintaining the red will take a little bit of diligence, for the vibrancy of that color, it's worth it. Red, unfortunately, has an inevitable fade. Use a red shampoo and conditioner, these will deposit red color into the shafts during the shower routine to help cover the fade, when not using a color depositing shampoo and conditioner use shampoos and conditioners for colored locks. To be extra diligent at maintaining the red, once a week use a matching red color depositing cream, using gloves apply even amounts for the time suggested on that particular product, then rinse and dry.
An enigma of living contradiction, sexy but sweet and hard but soft.
Cropped to be longer at the back and front. A few spikes and a dash of texture using the razor technique gives that dual look, perfect anytime and anywhere. Ever wonder how the ethereal wispiness of certain haircuts is achieved? Well, it's the razor technique. Using scissors usually gives a blunter slice whereas the razor gives texture, uneven cuts give the illusion of volume too. Limp and flat tresses are a no-no for any length and are definitely more unsightly on locks this long. Limp tresses make the face appear bigger and the head gets odd-looking. Blonde styles are a great remedy, this one has both volume and texture achieved through the cut and added highlights and lowlights.
Before blow-drying use a thermal protector (professional brands for best results). Thermal spray or serum helps protect from heat-related damage and prevents static. When it comes to heat styling, protection is a must. If your locks have natural curls or waves try a straightening serum, lotion, or spray to give that sleek and polished finish the style calls for. For fine strands use a volumizing product to give some extra life and texture.
Start off by sectioning going from the bottom to the top is an efficient and easy way to begin this process. Then blow-dry section by section, using a stiff bristle brush, ensuring you angle the blow dryer downward. A large round brush is also a beneficial tool to start setting the shape. After blow drying, section off, again starting from the bottom and working up. Next, section by section, cautiously work the flat iron giving light turns to the iron at the ends. Hairspray your entire head and smooth down any wispy bits around the hairline.
