10 Hair Trends You'll Want to Try in 2012
If you're considering a new cut, color, style, or treatment, make it one of these trends everyone will be talking about this year
Every year there's a new adjective to describe wavy hair: beachy, bouncy, bedhead. This year is no exception -- except the adjective doesn't start with a "b." Pantene celebrity stylist Tippi Shorter is calling this year's trend "straight waves." "It's uniform and polished, but lies flatter -- it's less of a curl," she says.
To get the look, Shorter suggests using a spray gel on damp hair and then sleeping in three or four big braids. "Whether your hair is naturally straight or curly, this will change the texture into waves," she says. "And if you're in a rush, you can always blow dry the braids." Once you've taken your braids out, use a 1-inch curling iron to define each of the sections even more.
