Byrdie Editors’ Hair How-To: A Texture Takeover

At Byrdie, we’re obsessed with all things beauty, inside and out. We’re self-described product junkies, and we’re always testing out the latest stuff to see what actually works. Take note: We have a nose for gimmicks. Keep an eye out for our guest posts, where our editors will share everything from what’s worth buying to celeb looks, step-by-step tutorials, and more.

While sleek hairstyles are super-chic and have their moments, we can’t get enough of textured hair these days. Maybe it has something to do with not wanting to fully let go of summer, but in general, textured styles are more laid-back and look best when every strand isn’t perfectly in place. Striving for imperfection? Now that’s a strategy we can get on board with. Also, these gorgeously—and thoughtfully, we should add—messy styles often embrace our natural texture, which is always a good thing.

We’ve chosen three texture styles and mapped out exactly how to achieve them. We like to call them style all-stars because they’re worthy of adding to your arsenal of signature looks. Plus, they’re easy and fun, and only require three products to nail. From the perfect pony to beachy waves, you’ll have these textured styles mastered in no time. ’Do you.

Take note: We have a nose for gimmicks. Keep an eye out for our guest posts, where our editors will share everything from what’s worth buying to celeb looks, step-by-step tutorials and more.

As beauty editors, we’re bombarded with new products (we know—it’s a tough life). We’re always giddy to try them, but as autumn approaches, we’re finding ourselves reaching for a few of the same creams and foundations that we used this time last year. They’re our fallbacks because we know they work. In order for a newcomer to make it into our daily rotation, it has to be good. We’re talking how-did-we-ever-live-without-this good. So in the spirit of replenishing our beauty bags for fall, we’ve sought out the latest launches that we can’t stop talking about. From hydrating face creams to stay-put foundations, these essentials will take you through autumn, winter and beyond. Find out our new favorites—plus a few old ones too good to let go of.
