When you are looking for a new hairstyle you should always start with knowing your hair texture. A hair texture that is thick and coarse will style differently than a hair texture that is thin.
One of the many tricks that hair stylists use for thick and coarse hair is to get a shorter style that has lots of layering. Layers help the hair to lay smoothly without the bulk.
Be sure to apply a smoothing serum or de-frizz product to damp hair before blow drying. Always point the nozzle of the blow dry down along the hair shaft as you dry. Another great tip is to blast your hair with cold air after you are finished blow-drying. The cold air helps to close the cuticle, locking out any frizziness.
