Textural Style Silhouette

This look is equal parts sweet and stylish. Here relaxed hair is styled into an inverted, asymmetric bob. Mermaid-inspired curls are shaped with a flat iron throughout and a defined side part is added. Because the strands are fine, to achieve volume at the crown, hair was blow-dried in the opposite direction prior to styling. For more mane inspiration, check out the Home Styling Guide in the July/Aug ’17 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair (on sale now!).
