We love this casual, chic and youthful style from Jhené Aiko. Part of shoot to promote a capsule collection collaboration with Lovers + Friends, this shot perfectly illustrates the singer’s quirky, individual style. Worn with beautiful natural texture, the hair ‘do also benefits from a wonderfully girly accessory. Part antlers, part cat ears, part mini pigtails, the decorative pieces lift up the whole look with a sense of kooky beatnik fun. Get tips for your own unique look in the style notes.

 

Step: Towel-dry hair to damp. Cocktail texture paste and curl enhancer in palms and work the mix through hair, roots to ends. Comb hair through for even product distribution.

Step: In half-inch sections, use hands to wrap hair into tight twists. Allow the twists to air dry. When hair is 95% dry, release twists. Make a side part and comb hair to the sides and back, opening the face frame. In you feel your hair needs more texture, use a curling wand to make a few indiscriminate, arty swirls.

Step: Find antler and pigtail inspired hair accessories from Jhené’s own collection, and in trendy high street retailers like Urban Outfitters and H&M; alternatively, try your beauty supply store. Place them on the highest part of the head for maximum effect.
