Whether they’re swooped to the side, slicked down, or gelled over, your look isn’t complete unless your baby hairs are together. Just ask the 2014 winner of the Allure Beauty Blogger Awards, Alyssa Wallace, a.k.a. Alyssa Forever — sis knows how to lay down a baby hair in a way that instantly polishes and upgrades her look. “I feel like they are more vital for updos and styles with the hair pulled away from the face, because they help minimize the size of my forehead,” she said. The key to getting those baby hairs perfect? Water, a small brush, and a little gel. Spray water on a boar-bristle brush (or toothbrush) and brush baby hairs forward. Then use a drop of gel (Wallace likes Eco Styler Moroccan Argan Oil Styling Gel) and brush hairs so they’re curling toward your hairline, not straight down your forehead. “Once I have everything in a good formation, I like to use Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste, which helps keep the hairs in place,” says Wallace. Now that you’ve got the lowdown, take a peek at these baby hair styles to inspire your next look.
