The quickest way to turn a great look into a terrible one is by overloading your hair with too much product. Too much hair product will weigh down your locks, make your hair strands look oily, dull your hair color and cause your style to become clumpy and messy.

Stick to first adding the smallest amount of product possible, and then only add a little more if needed.

Limp locks can ruin any hairstyle, so if you know you're prone to them, make sure you invest in some volume injecting products.

Shampoos and styling products that aren't oily or heavy and will add volume into your lackluster locks will help, as will a hairstyle that had plenty of volume in it.

A hair part that isn't flattering for you won't do your hairstyle or your face shape any favors. It might seem simple, but ensuring you incorporate the right part into your hairstyle will make a world of difference.

If you have a long face or wide forehead, opt for a flattering side hair part. If you have a smaller face, then a centre hair part that opens up your face is the right option for you.
