Getting this cool style requires two things – longer hair and a blow dryer. A blast of heat gives this pomp plenty of volume and that curved bend. Combined with product, using a hair dryer also provides added staying power. Try ADH dry for texture without hold for touchable hair you can run your fingers through.
