Between the months of May and August, so many brands and editors tell us that our gloriously fuzzy hair ought to be tamed. The message is clear: Frizz is a problem and must be fought — fast.
But there's an alternative narrative, one in which girls who have coarse, curly, fuzzy, wavy, natural textures get to celebrate the gorgeous hair they've got. With this in mind, we tapped Jeanie Syfu, a hair extraordinaire and Tresemmé spokesperson who is a mainstay backstage at fashion shows. Syfu is a fan of frizz — just take a look
at some of the incredible hairstyles she's created.
And since frizz isn't reserved for one hair type, we picked two girls with completely different textures; Djenice has a head of coarse, natural curls, while Alexa has thick, looser waves. We asked Syfu to create three styles on both women and the results are nothing short of spectacular.
So if you're sick of people telling you to fix your frizz (or just want to try out some beautiful, volume-packed styles), click through. As Carrie Bradshaw once said, maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed
