I have been obsessed with textured hairstyles lately. Whether I’m using a wand or a waver, I’ve really just been loving giving my hair some easy, messy texture style. I have an asymmetrical bob and I feel like this kind of style just really goes well with it. Today, I’m  using my favorite TRESemmé styling products to create a simple hairstyle at home.

This hairstyle is one of my favorites to rock on a daily basis. Mainly because it’s so super easy to do. It takes me less than 15 minutes to put it all together. I grab my favorite TRESemmé products, a curling wand and some bobby pins.

A great hairstyle starts with an awesome foundation, so you want to make sure that you’re washing and conditioning your hair with the style in mind. My hair can get super dry from heat styling and chemical treatments. So I love using the TRESemmé Moisture Rich Shampoo & Conditioner while I’m in the shower. They gently moisturizes the hair and scalp with Vitamin E, which helps to restore softness; aims to produce hydration, moisturization and touchably soft hair with a salon-quality shine that does not weigh you down. This gets my hair ready to go for the style.

To get started after my shower, I usually let my hair air dry while I do my makeup. Once it’s fully dry, I section it and since I’m working with a bob, I only have to do the top half and bottom half.

I use a curling wand and wrap my hair. I do the bottom half first and then the top. After this step I let it cool down for about 3-5 minutes.

At this point I want to add a bit of texture to the hair, product helps with this, it gives the hair something to hang on to so the curls don’t fall limp. And also protection. For this I used TRESemmé Climate Protection Finishing Spray: Climate Control Complex provides hair protection against humidity, wind and static.

At this point, I puff up the bangs area, start to pull the side section back and begin the side braid.

I braid all the way to the end of the strands, and then pull it back and towards the side. At this point I try positioning it in different spots to see what looks best.

Now that I found the perfect spot, I go ahead and grab two bobby pins and pin it back. When I’m done and it’s pinned, I do a little bit of fluffing with my fingers, lightly adding some volume to the root. And then I finish it off with my TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hair SprayWaterfree formula assures humidity-resistance for 24 hours— while gripping polymers freeze your look in a flash.
