Hair texture type: Taylor Swift has baby fine hair but lots of it, with a generous amount of natural curl.
Going curly: First and most important, says Lorraine Massey, co-owner of DevaCurl and author of Curly Girl: The Handbook (Workman, January 2011), replace your shampoo with DevaCurl No-Poo Zero Lather Conditioning Cleanser, which cleans without drying in the shower. According to Kevin Mancuso, Nexxus Celebrity Stylist, who has worked with Swift, "The thing that most women with curly hair want is a smooth surface, which will give your curls better definition." He recommends Nexxus ProMend Conditioner followed by ProMend Split End Binding Targeted Leave-In Treatment Crème, because they add defined shape by repairing split ends and also help hair hold a curl longer. Work the leave-in from roots to ends. "It adds an amazing surface to the hair," he says. Celebrity curl secret: "Curling irons are always used on stars with curly or wavy hair on the red carpet," he says, "to add definition."
Making it straight: "The best thing to do is start with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner to soften hair, detangle, and cause the frizz in your curls to relax," Mancuso says. "That means you'll rely less on styling products to get it straight." Then blow-dry with a heat-activated styling spray. "The styling mist acts as a barrier to absorb heat and helps protect hair from breakage due to thermal styling, up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit!" he says. After misting this onto the hair, he recommends blow-drying and finishing the look by flat-ironing sections.
