Have a cute dress with a bit of edge? Celebrity hairstylist Angelo David of Angelo David Salon recommends this rad, rock and roll ‘do, which looks ridiculously awesome (particularly on girls with short, razor edge layers!).
Step 1: Prep freshly washed hair for styling using the Angelo David Premier Volume Spray.
Step 2: Divide hair into the desired deep part, and blow-dry section by section using a large, round brush.
Step 3: To create a drastic, side swept bang, take the front section of hair and sweep it away from your part.
Step 4: Apply Redken Maneuver Working Wax to random sections of hair to give it that “piece-y” appearance.
Step 5: Finish off your style with L’Oreal Tex Infinium Professional Hairspray for a strong hold sans the stiffness.

Balance out the glam of your short dress with an undone, boho fishtail braid a la Blake Lively! Hairstylist to the stars Jorge Luis of Prive Salon shows us how.
Step 1: Apply Prive Root Amplifier to damp hair.
Step 2: If you have curly hair, use a round brush to blow-dry. If you have straight hair, just use your fingers.
Step 3: Once your hair is completely dry, pull it over to one side and section it into two sections (making sure to leave out any fringe). Spray on a light texturizing spray.
Step 4: Now, create a messy, undone fishtail braid, and tie off the end with a clear elastic hair tie. Pull out random strands here and there to “rough up” the look a bit.

Pair a vintage-inspired strapless dress with curls that are sure to sparkle just as much! Okay, maybe not as much, but you get our point. Here’s the how-to courtesy of Redken stylist and salon owner Mary Chan.
Step 1: Depending on the length of your hair, use a ½” to 1” curling iron. Take small sections of hair, and wrap them around the curling iron, starting at the top and going down to the bottom.
Step 2: Continue to curl your whole head, making sure it’s wavy from roots to ends.
Step 3: Spray with Redken Forceful Finishing Spray, and you’re ready to roll (pun intended!).

Step 1: Prepare washed hair for styling using the Angelo David Premier Volume Spray.

Step 4: Slightly run your fingers behind your neck to break up sections and create a softness.
Step 5: Put your hair in a half up, half down ‘do, and complete the look with a spritz of Redken Shine Flash 02 for hold and shine.
