If there’s one word to summarize all up the emerging trends for 2015, it’s ‘unfussy.’ Clothing, hair, and makeup all feel a little simpler, paired down, relaxed. When it comes to styling this means less time spent with heat tools and less polished results. The looks shown here are a perfect example of this sort of simplicity. By using a crimper on random sections you’ll add interest and volume, but without creating a big, wild mess. The look is playful, not overwrought. Click the style notes for steps. –– Laura Martin

Step: Mist hair roots to ends with protective thickening lotion and dry with a boar bristle round brush for soft volume.

Step: Mist mids and ends lightly with healing oil. Use a crimping iron to press areas of texture into the hair. These areas should cover 1/4 – 1/3 of the head, and may be created with a regular crimping iron or micro crimper.

Step: Arrange hair as desired with fingers or pull back into a ponytail. Finish with holding spray.
