“Natural” wavy texture is all the rage, but there’s only a small percentage of the population that gets perfect beachy undulations from air drying alone. For the rest of us, “natural” texture is achieved through products, braids, diffusers, and curling wands. But the looks paired with Hilfiger’s Fall 2015 collection actually feel natural. These styles are mostly straight, accented with cowlicks and lightly flicked ends. And it looks fabulous. Make the most of your own natural texture; learn how in the notes. –– Laura Martin
Step: After showering, apply a handful of cream whip, flipping head upside down and squeezing in to the ends.
Step: Flip hair back and comb through with a wide tooth comb, then use the edge of the comb to carve in a clean center or side part.
Step: Apply a dime of hair gel to fingertips and massage into roots, working up from the nape, along the scalp. Repeat, starting at the front hairline and working back toward the crown.
Step: Allow hair to dry naturally. When moisture is gone, mist with holding spray.
