Michelle says, "Hey Outblush! I'm a huge fan of you guys, and wondering if you might be able to help me out. Summer's approaching, and one of my favorite things about it is the effortless, beachy hair style that's seen everywhere. I have super straight hair, and while I've tried a bunch of products, nothing seems to give me that beachy effect. Can you guys recommend some stuff that might work, and won't break the bank? Thanks!"
Never fails, right? Curly girls want straight hair, straight girls want waves & ringlets. We've been there. A few tips for starting, before you ever style your hair: Wash it the night before, then towel dry, apply product & braid your hair in a bunch of random-sized braids for a natural look. In the morning, undo your braids & shake your head to lightly separate the waves. Add some extra product, scrunch, hairspray, and go!
