The Top 6 Cool Girl Hairstyles Around the World

Iconic cities are known for their culture and cuisine, but they're just as recognizable for their beauty looks. Beachy waves reign supreme in Rio, while Rome is known for big, sexy strands. See which styles the locals are known for, then copy John Frieda celebrity stylist Sebastian Scolarici's tricks for recreating them.

1. Barcelona

Barcelona is a city known for old architecture and modern style. Never afraid of cutting edge, the Barcelona girl is always modern. To get this look, don't over-style. It's about a great cut with a little texture. I love John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion applied all over on damp hair and then scrunched with a blow dryer on low. If you need a little frizz control, use a drop of John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir.

2. Paris

The Paris girl is all about “wash and wear, understated chic" hair. Shampoo and condition at night, adding a little John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse, and then simply go to bed. You'll wake up with that perfect messy bed head. Run a bush through it in the morning and go.

3. Cartagena

Cartagena is the perfect balance of old Spanish colonial and Caribbean jet set playground. The women are put together and always look like they are ready to party 'till dawn. Think Sofia Vergara — the epitome of the Colombian bombshell. On damp hair, spray John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Go Curlier Heat Activated Spray and blow dry achieving volume, but minimizing frizz. Once dry, use a barrel curling iron to create sexy waves, then brush and spray into place. 

4. Rome

Rome is a magical, sexy city with women who equally love sexy hair. Italy is where big hair was born and the women there still embrace it. On damp hair, apply John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion but just at the root and a little mousse on the rest. Blow dry by lifting the root to achieve volume, then use a large curling iron and pin curl each section. Once cooled, give your hair a good brushing and spray hairspray all over to keep the volume in place.

5. Rio

Rio is filled with hard bodies on the beach in skimpy bikinis and endless nights that go until the sun rises. Textured beach hair that goes from day-to-night is the ultimate Brazilian 'do. Wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and spray in a good amount of John Frieda’s Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray. Part your hair in the middle and split into two braids. Enjoy the sun and once dry take braids out and hand comb. If you need a little shine, use a conditioner as a styling aid. 

6. Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is the Paris of South America, so it's no wonder that the women emulate French simplicity and style, but with a Latin twist. The typical girl from BA keeps her hair long, which is almost uniform for woman of all ages. Sleek shiny hair that is typically straight, but not flat ironed, is the look. To create this 'do, use John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz Immunity Primer and with a large round brush blow dry straight. Once dry, use John Frieda’s Sheer Blonde Crystal Clear Hairspray and twist into a bun to help add a little texture. Let the bun stay long enough to create a slight weave, then hand brush.
