I have coarse-ish, easily styled, 3a-ish hair. I ALWAYS wanted to know how to get my hair to look like this:

Sleek, with side sweeping action, minimum volume, and very orderly. Touchable-looking. I have tried to straighten it, curl it, etc... And I dont think I know what I'm doing, honestly.

Tips? Tricks? Wanna point me in a direction? Is there a name for this style? "Perfectly controlled wavy hair" style? haha

Thanks in advance.
