Taylor Hill: Glamorous Curls vs. Relaxed Waves

Glamorous Curls vs Relaxed Waves

Which will it be?

Supermodel and L'Oréal Professionnel brand ambassador Taylor Hill is a constant source of hair inspiration, so it's only right that we analyze (and recreate!) her most eye-catching styles. Ahead, we're sharing the scoop on two gorgeous hairstyles donned by Hill down the runway to discover which one reigns supreme. If you had to choose between glamorous curls and relaxed, textured waves, which would you pick? Decisions, decisions!

 

Glamorous curls

 

Looking for a "wow" style for a special event? This look may be right for you! Ideal for extra long locks, these curls are glossy, bouncy, and oh-so gorgeous. We recommend upping the shine factor by smoothing the curls with a serum or styling oil before heading out the door. The shine will catch the light ever so slightly, helping to add a soft finish to the voluminous style. You can also opt to sweep the curls over one shoulder to show off a slender neck or chic jewelry.

 

Editor's tip: If you have natural curls, all the better for this look, but if not, we recommend investing in a high-quality curling iron. Before curling your strands, apply a heat protectant product and ensure the tool is set to the lowest temperature setting. Pair it with a high-shine spray, such as L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Shower Shine.

 

Relaxed waves

 

One of our favorite everyday looks for long hair, these high-volume sideswept waves look laidback and carefree. Thick, textured, and full of attitude, we recommend pairing this style with edgy eye makeup and chunky accessories.

 

Editor's tip: If you're hair isn't naturally voluminous, use a volumizing mousse, like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Volume Envy Extra, on your strands prior to styling. Once your hair is curled, create a wave-like effect by brushing the curls out gently with a comb or running your fingers through them once they've cooled. Top it all off with a volume-enhancing hairspray.
