Description

When she first broke out on the scene, Taylor was known for her long blonde mermaid waves (and catchy songs of course!). Her image was super innocent and sweet, and her tresses always looked fit for a country-singing princess! Fast-forward to today and Taylor is working a much more sophisticated look.

This gorgeous hairstyle flows over the shoulders showing off the perfectly defined curls which adds movement and bounce to the over-all look. This elegant 'do is perfect for any occasion and is easy to re-create on those with naturally curly hair.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Mousse

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.

2. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers

Scrunchdrywavy

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 Curling Iron

Curlingironmed

A medium curling iron is used to create medium sized curls.

4. Use a Curling Iron to Curl the Back

Backcurlingiron

Starting from the back, 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 roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed.

5. Use a Curling Iron on the Front and Sides

Horizontalcurlingiron

Starting at the front, 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 roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until all of the hair through your front and sides has been curled.

6. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

7. Apply Smoothing Shine

Smoothingshinefinishing

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.

8. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

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.
