I love Shakira's hair. Can you tell me how to get my own version of it?

Shakira: The Hairstyle Chameleon

Never one to tie her hair down to one style, Shakira's hairstyles runs the gamut from soft and wavy to wild and sexy.

Shakira's hairstyle is cut into a past the shoulder style with layers placed in the last few inches to add volume and movement. This cut works well with her natural curl by helping to tame it with its weight, yet gives lots of styling options.

To get Shakira's hairstyle in the curly version add a styling cream to naturally curly hair and either let you hair air dry or blow dry with a diffuser attachment. To finish off use a pomade or hair wax to define and de-frizz curls. For naturally straight hair apply a hair gel to damp hair and twist small sections of hair tightly and roll up to the scalp. Secure with a large bobby pin and let air dry. When the hair is completely dry carefully unwind the curls and separate them with you fingers, which have been coated with a light styling wax.

For a wilder version of Shakira's hairstyle try a glammed up pony tail. First, apply a styling cream or volumizing mousse to damp hair and blow dry hair straight while flipping your head upside down for extra volume. When hair is dry lightly back comb the roots of the top of your hair for extra lift. Place a zigzag part on one side and pull hair down and to the nape of your neck, so it's covering your ears, and place hair in a low lying pony tail. Be sure to leave out some layers around the face to perfect the wild look of Shakira's hairstyle.

I'll give one of these hair tips a go and see what it does. I've heard one before already, and I think I'll try both to see which I like best. It sucks for someone with flat, straight hair but I'll see what happens.

Thanks for the tip!
