Country singer Kimberly Perry has a great head of hair. Her wild waves are a breath of fresh air amongst the super-polished vintage hairstyles we have been inundated with on the red carpet lately - it's great to see this starlet embrace her waves and let her personality shine through. However, as anyone with wavy hair will know, humidity and frizz can sometimes make it impossible to have a good hair day. If you need a good standby look for bad hair days, check out Perry's easy hairdo which looks trendy while keeping unruly waves at bay.
This is fun and fancy 'do perfect for those with naturally wavy hair looking for a style with plenty of funk. The back is pinned or tied to the base of the head leaving out random strands through the front and sides to soften the over all style for a great finish. Kimberly has short layers around the crown of her head that add loads of volume to this style. Her side hair part keeps her fringe out of her eyes while flattering her face shape. The sides and back are just as cool, with the hair pinned at the nape of the neck on the left side. This is a great way to keep the hair around the face, without having it in your face! Just remember to use a strong finishing hairspray to keep it all in place.
Kimberly has worn this hairstyle with a black vintage-inspired gown, but this edgy hairstyle would work just as well with jeans and a t-shirt. This is a versatile hairstyle that virtually every face shape can pull off.

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.
Use your hand to scrunch the hair as you blow-dry. Remember to keep the blow-dryer on a low speed and heat setting and to leave some moisture in your hair.
Take your section of hair and pull it tightly across to the opposite side and pin it securely into place.
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.
Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.
To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
