Great news ahead for low-maintenance ladies. We had the chance to meet with celebrity hairstylist Tyler Colton last night and he had one solid piece of advice: Put your flatirons away! “We’ve been really obsessed with straight hair for over five years,” says the pro, who has worked with Charlize Theron, Jessica Biel, Eva Longoria Parker and more. “It’s time to bring back natural texture.” If you have natural waves or curls, Colton recommends using a curl-enhancing cream on damp hair and either diffusing or scrunching as it air dries to boost texture. Straight manes can get the look by applying mousse before blow-drying and adding texture with a curling iron. Not only is this fresh style easy to achieve and a mega timesaver, but Colton points out another benefit: “It’s a really great way to get healthy hair again.” Looks like we have a winner!
