How To: The Looks-Good-On-Everyone Hair Style

The trick to gorgeous hair is making it all look natural: the color, cut, style. We women know that SO MUCH WORK goes into such a “natural” feel but we continue to work it and strive for sensational strands.

Ryan Crupi of the Chris McMillan Salon – who has tamed the tresses of Kate Beckinsale, Selma Blair and Marissa Tomei – divulges his secrets for maintaining effortless hair year round. One style that works on all manes.

“This style is easy and lasts. It’s seasonless, not a hassle to reproduce at home. And it can be done on long hair or longer bobs,” says Ryan. Think: Elle Macpherson, Giselle, Kate Hudson.

Here are his tips to creating the beautiful stringy loose waves, looks-good-on-everyone look:

TIP 1: You’ll need one good haircut and three maintenance cuts a year.

TIP 2: Make your own beach spray (ocean water, filter out the sand) and use a little serum on the ends. RYAN’S PICK: Kerastase Serum Oleo-Relax – it eliminates frizz and gives it a smooth sheen.

TIP 3: Creating Volume: Apply hairspray at the root and blow-dry up. RYAN’S PICK: Shu Uemura Spray. Curl with 1 1/2 inch brush. The trick is to make sure that the curl sets.

TIP 4: For naturally wavy hair, blow dry front section and air dry the rest. Apply serum to the ends. When it dries completely, use fingers to separate and blend the waves.
