Inspiration: Although she was canned from Melrose Place, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz’s (who played Violet Foster on the show), knows how to keep her vivacious red hair from fading and probably uses a powerful protecting treatment.
Editors Note: I absolutely love leave-in conditioners. They hydrate, and, with the right product choice combination, they help protect your colour. On the styling side of things, I love a messed up bun. The classic up-do radiates poise, tousling it up displays a fun side. With a leave-in conditioner and some hairspray, you can achieve this looser, wilder, and scruffier version of a bun at home. To create this effortless look, apply a leave-in conditioner to your damp hair to keep it healthy and prevent breakage while backcombing. Let your hair air-dry then build some texture by teasing random sections of dry hair from the roots. Tip your head upside down, pulling your hair into a loose ponytail on the crown of your head. Pin the ends around the elastic band. It’s key to remember that you are creating structure and then somewhat destroying it. Pull some pieces of hair from the bun and hairspray the ends. Blast the hair dryer to ruffle up the look, while softly using your hand to rub the bun. Keep this style simple; you don’t want to end up looking like an electrocuted bride. If you achieved a lopsided bun, don’t fix it. This look is supposed to be imperfect. You want to leave the frizzies. Use a final spritz of hairspray to finish off the look. This distressed bun is a fine flyaway mess, and it’s what I’ll be sporting this season.
