During my modeling days, we didn’t have a team of stylists for photo shoots. I had to do my hair myself. Here are a few of my favorite hairstyles and the tools that you can use to achieve the volume, hold, or sweep you’d like.

High Style

For such an updo, hairspray is essential to keep strands smoothed back. Look for a formula that offers a light hold, like this one, and an alcohol-free formula to prevent dryness.

Side Swept

Boar-bristle brushes distribute oils to deliver flawless, shiny strands. This one is stylist Kevin Marques's favorite.

Retro Flip

Aerated foams give hair body and help it look and feel thicker. Today's formulas are much softer to the touch and won't weigh fine hair down.

Lift Off

Using a lightweight spray, like this one, at the roots adds both volume and texture. Blow-dry hair with the air focused upward; backcomb for more height.
