To give your blowout major bounce, use a round brush to dry two-inch sections at a time, pinning each section into barrel curls while they cool. When you let them down, you'll have big, glam curls! Part hair on the side, and tease the roots to get Rita Ora's flirty down 'do.
Anyone with short or medium length hair knows that updos can be a big struggle, if not totally impossible. But leaving your hair down all the time? That gets boring fast. I recently chopped a few inches off of my longish hair for a lob with choppy ends. I love the new style so much, and am actually considering going a little bit shorter, but at the same time, I miss some aspects of my old cut. Long hair comes with so many options – you can do braids, big buns, long ponytails, and cool updos.
