Styling your hair is one way to change your look and express your creativity. Unless you’re a professional hair stylist, though, learning how to do cool hairstyles can be a process of trial and error. The first step in creating a new hairstyle is to get a proper haircut. Then you need to be aware of the styling tools and hair products out there. With a little practice, you can get the hairstyle you want.

Things You'll Need


Get a stylish haircut. The haircut you get depends on the type of hairstyle that you would like to create. Some ideas are layers for long hair or an asymmetrical bob haircut.

Look at magazines and websites for inspiration. Keep in mind your hair type when doing so. For example, if you have curly hair, choose hairstyles that will be easy to create.

Practice using different styling tools on your hair. Some examples include straightening irons, hot rollers and curling irons. Become an expert at using them to create just about any hair style.

Use pomade, mousse and hair gel. Don’t use them all at once, though. Practice using them and find out what works best on your hair.


  • Ask a hair stylist how to create a specific style.
