Two-Textured Hair That's Not A Total Mess (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

My girlfriends are constantly asking me for advice on how to manage their two-textured hair. And while I can totally relate to breaking out into a frustrating sweat when creating a wavy, yet straight style, the look created for Rebecca Minkoff's spring 2013 fashion show may help us all take a huge sigh of relief.

In the video above, lead stylist Jeanie Syfu explains how she mimicked two-textured hair to complement Minkoff's '70s-influenced collection. The result? A mash-up of straight strands and beachy texture that is quite the sexy mess. Syfu started by applying a foaming mousse and rough blow-drying throughout using fingers to build body. Next, she smoothed out the ends with a Mason Pearson brush. Then she took random sections of hair and created curls through the mid-length with a one-inch barrel curling iron. A flat iron helped to straighten the ends and add a polished touch. Syfu sprayed a bit of dry shampoo for a matte look. To finish, she made a slightly off-center part and applied an anti-frizz creme, raking through the hair from roots to ends.
