Taylor swift is a pop icon that is always blowing us away with her stylish new hair and makeup trends. She flaunts a cool and casual hairstyle here that compliments her face shape and hair texture perfectly. Layers are cut through the sides of the hairstyle as well as throughout the back to create volume and shape to the look. The wash and go wave hair looks really nice with this cut as the layers makes it look like you spent hours drying your hair to create the perfect waves. A natural air dry works well with this wash-and-go hairstyle that lets wavy hair do its thing. This is an ideal look for people who live by the beach or people who have the natural wave in their hair.
This casual hairstyle is simple yet chic, yet this sassy 'do is perfect for those with medium to thick hair and best suited to frame an oval or oblong face shape as the layers will open up your face a bit more and give your cheeks a natural contour. You do not need a lot of highlighter on your face when you have this specific cut and shape. The only downside to this gorgeous look is the fact that it is not ideal for people who wear glasses. Your face and glasses will get lost in this sea of curls and layers.
You only need 20 minutes to complete this hairstyle with a bit of product to highlight the waves, keep them in for longer and create texture in the finished style. You might want the wash and go look but you do not want the 'hurricane' look at the end of the day. Finish off this casual look with a bold lip and a natural eye.

2. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers
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.
3. Use a Medium Radial Brush
A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
4. Blow-dry Bangs Forward
When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.

6. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron
Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.
7. Scrunch Moulding Cream Through Hair with Fingers

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then using your fingers, rake through your bangs to the ends for hold and texture.
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.
