THE LOOK Soft waves with swooping bangs HOW-TO Stylist David Babaii says to start with beach spray on wet hair and then blow-dry with a diffuser, using your hands instead of a brush to create texture. Use a large-barrel ceramic curling iron (Babaii likes FHI), alternating the direction of the curls. “To finish, run your fingers gently up each strand to create a soft backcombing effect,” says Babaiil. “This creates volume and added texture.”
INSIDER TRICK Style the bangs while blow-drying by blowing down on them; and don’t use the curling iron them. BUY ONLINE NOW FHI ceramic curling iron, $195; folica.com.
