If you're coveting a sexy, swept back style like Angelina Jolie's at the premier of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, there's no need to fret. If your hair is at least a little longer than your shoulders, you too can get this sexy style.
First, run some volumizing product though damp hair and blow dry upside down. Once dry, set straight hair on large hot rollers or force naturally curly hair to loosen up by curling all over using an iron with a 2" barrel. Naturally wavy hair should not need either. Next, section out the front of the hair framing the face and tease the crown section behind it at the roots to provide fullness on top. If you don't automatically get enough lift, use a little hair spray as it will make teasing easier. Then smooth the front section back over the freshly teased areas. Next, using a little texturizing product on your palms, apply to the dry hair, this will help it stay out of your face in front, and set the waves by scrunching in the back. Finally, use some shine enhancing hair spray all over, to maintain the swept back style.
