Since LotR fans really take their alternate universe extremely seriously, there's a million resources on and about the LotR looks.

I've decided I've been a closeted Hobbit hair fan all along, since I saw the first movie. I like the natural wavyness and cool behind-the-ear-tuck look of it.
It looks like wash and wear at its best. Or second day hair at its best. I enjoy the natural texture, however light or intense it might be. It probably requires very light creme hair products to just give it that unkempt-minimally styled look.
Love everything about it.
I'm hoping my hair keeps growing out as it's been, since the last nasty chop I suffered at my last hairdresser. I've found an Ouidad certified salon where I went to touch up my highlights and toner, and I'm sure I'll be able to trust them to do a good job...whenever that next haircut might happen. Blame it on the economy, or blame it on the bossa nova, I'm going Hobbit for a while ;)
If you have a wavy or curly texture to your hair, scrunch a product appropriate to your texture and allow your hair to air dry, or give it a light once-over with a diffuser-tipped hair dryer. The curly texture can be enhanced, of course, using a variety of styling tools ranging from hot rollers to curling iron. A final mist of medium-hold spray can help keep things where they should be, particularly the bangs, whisps around the ears, and crown area if you like a little more volume.
