Some girls have it all. With her Trop Rouge blog, Christina Caradona is the acme of the New York fashion blogging scene. She’s incredibly beautiful. She has an innate sense of trends and beauty and style. She’s got the most gorgeous, naturally textured tresses. And she knows when to mix it up with a hot straight look. (Oh, and she spends half her time sunning in the South of France!) The blown out version, cut by Zeph O’ Hora for ARROJO NYC, is designed to support textured tresses. Concave layering creates space and support for curls, while making it easier to blowdry hair straight. The long fringe adds versatility; it can be center-parted when worn curly, or swooshed to the side when worn straight. We love the personality of Christina’s textured locks, and she should keep them like that more often than not, but for a dynamic change, we adore this softly tousled straight style –– it’s so street tough! 

Step: To take similar textures into softly tousled straight styles, apply lots of hydro mist and lots of defrizz serum to damp, towel-dried hair.

Step: Use boar bristle road brush to blowdry with smoothness and shine. The combination of boar bristles, hydro mist and defrizz serum is my favorite way to turn naturally curly hair into straighter looks while keeping frizz away.

Step: After blowdry, use some Refinish dry shampoo to create a more lived-in look. Spray into hair, brush out, shake and tousle hair.

Step: Going radially around the crown, use a curling iron to create soft ‘C’ shaped waviness in indiscriminate places. Wind small sections onto iron, hold for a few seconds; release. Be creative and have fun tailoring to your own aesthetic.
