Are you still on the fence about how to style hair accessories? We're guessing that might be because you're still figuring out to wear hair accessories and make them look super cute. So, we tapped our fave celebrity stylist Chad Wood to us styling tips for how to style every chic hair accessory. Watch the video below and read on for all of our best tips.
PREP YOUR HAIR WITH BABY BLONDE SHAMPOO FOR BRIGHTNESS.
“[Baby Blonde Shampoo] going to add sparkle, shine & luster to the hair to make your blonde look even better in the light,” Chad advises. Our blonde-boosting shampoo is powered by Provence Chamomile Extract for natural brightening and helps gently highlight your hair over time.
BLOW DRY TO SMOOTH BEFORE YOU STYLE HAIR ACCESSORIES.
Using a round brush, section your hair and blow dry for smoothness. And If your hair is wavy or curly and you want to keep it that way—hair accessories look amazing in every texture, after all—then you’ll want to skip this step!
APPLY BABY BLONDE AIR-DRY WAVE PERFECTING CRÈME.
“This is a multi-tasker so you can do so many things with it,” Chad says. Rub the flyaway-smoothing crème between your hands to warm it, then tilt your head sideways and apply it to stray hairs.
START TEASING HAIR A ½ INCH FROM THE ROOT WITH A SMALL COMB.
HOLD YOUR HAIR FLAT WHILE YOU SLIDE IN YOUR ACCESSORY.
You’re done and gorgeous!
