1. Flirty Updo
Flirty meets elegant in Emily Ratajkowski's simple updo that a busy girl could take from work to date night with no problem. Follow this topknot tutorial for a similar style.
2. Supermodel Blowout
A voluminous blowout starts with OUAI Volume Spray, our weightless pre blowout mist that adds long-lasting lift. Re-create VS babe Behati Prinsloo's by applying Volume Spray at yours roots then blowing your hair out with a round brush. Finish the catwalk-ready style with statement hair clips.
3. My Lady-Like Ponytail
There are two things a polished ponytail can't thrive without: a very romantic velvet bow and OUAI Leave In Conditioner. Apply the healthy hair detangler on damp hair before drying and straightening to ensure a super-silky finish and healthier hair long after you've used it.
4. Half-Up Waves
Short-haired girls can't go wrong with half-up textured beach waves à la silverscreen star Margot Robbie. Use rice protein-infused wave enhancer OUAI Wave Spray on damp hair then head out the door or use a diffuser for added wave definition.
5. Sleek 'n' Sorta Wavy
Take the guess work out of getting a glass hair look like Adriana Lima's and use OUAI Memory Mist Heat Protectant before straightening each section. Our high-octane heat protectant uses memory technology to lock in your style, shape, and texture until your next wash.
6. Baby Bouffant
Make a short haircut look whimsical by adding body to a petite bob or lob. To lift the crown and add thickness, massage in 1-2 dollops of OUAI Dry Texture Foam near the roots then pin half the hair up with a French hair pin. Set the Ashley Tisdale-inspired style with more volume via OUAI Volumizing Hair Spray.
7. Double Bun Updo
Another charming option for short-haired girls—Kristin Cavalallari's easy double bun updo, ideal for girls heading to date night with day-two hair. Refresh greasy roots and instantly lift locks with a blast of OUAI Dry Shampoo all over. Next, rub a dime-sized amount of OUAI Matte Pomade between your fingers to emulsify it then go over flyaways or strands too short to stay tucked in the buns.
8. Flat Iron Waves
Take it from the ever-sultry Rosie Huntington Whiteley on how to execute supermodel waves that'll steam up your date's glasses. Our go-to combo to create her flawless flat iron waves are OUAI Volume Spray to start, and OUAI Dry Shampoo Foam to finish.
9. Modern Old Hollywood Curls
10. Soft, Feminine Curls
For an ultra-feminine 'do on Valentine's Day, sample Jenna Dewan's subtle side-swept curls. Apply a nickel-size amount of OUAI Finishing Crème to smooth dry ends and imbue the hairstyle with a healthy, light-reflective shine.
11. Sleek and Shiny
The biggest hair conundrum is making a straight hairstyle appear glossy without reverting the sleekness. To solve the problem, use OUAI Memory Mist Heat Protectant before flat ironing tiny sections then once finished, spray more Memory Mist. Turn up the shine with OUAI Hair Oil from roots to ends. And don't forget to pack OUAI Anti-Frizz Hair Sheets in your clutch in case you need to touch up mid-date.
12. Wet-Looking Beach Waves
No comfort zone-shattering hairstyle is more zesty than wet waves, the key to which is glow-giving OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil. Use Jen Atkin's tips to fake the wet look without weighing down your hair.
13. Snatched Ballerina Bun
Pull the hair back into a low bun and securely tighten with an elastic. To get a sleek coat, as seen on Ashlee Simpson, spray OUAI Medium Hair Spray on your brush and gently glide it down the length of the look. This will tamp down any flyaways or frizz while also protecting the style against humidity and rain.
