First, apply Argan oil on the ends of your damp hair.

You may even opt to add in some texturizing spray.

Second, with a comb, brush your hair forward as opposed to just straight down.

Third, with a blow dryer and a round brush, round out your hair inward. Afterwards, you may style it in any way you want.
