Before Kim Kardashian’s waist-length glass hair and Selena Gomez’s ultra-short bob, the ultimate hair goals were just a channel click away on Boy Meets World. On the ’90s ABC and Disney Channel show, Topanga Lawrence (played by Danielle Fishel) wowed the world with her perfectly imperfect voluminous waves. Who would’ve known that decades and about a million hair trends later, Fishel’s mane would be the center of our hair-spiration. Her styling du jour, a windblown look that’s not too rigid, not too messy, has also been worn by stars including Madelaine Petsch and Gigi Hadid. Think this lazy-girl ‘do is for you? Keep reading to find out how to nail the trend straight from Fishel’s stylist, Laurie Heaps.
Now it’s time to add movement. Spritz it with a multi-purpose protective thermal spray, like the White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Styling Spray ($15), then use a flat iron, like the CHI 1″ Volcanic Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron, to add a slight bend to one-inch sections across your head. To achieve the kink-free curvature, Heaps says to move your wrist back and forth as you work the tool down each section. The result? Soft bends that look naturally windblown, not heat-made.
To finish, use a flexible hold hairspray like BioSilk Silk Therapy Finishing Spray – Natural Hold to seal in the look. Don’t be too concerned about flyaways, as that’s part of the airy effect. However, if you aren’t a fan of wisps surrounding your crown, there’s a pro trick that can help tame them without disrupting your hard-earned hair movement. “Mist the palms of your hands or even a clean toothbrush with hairspray and run over the trouble areas,” Heaps says.
BioSilk Silk Therapy Finishing Spray Natural Hold is a uniquely designed hairspray developed to maintain your favorite looks with pliable hold while using silk botanicals to provide brilliant shine.
