3 Effortless Hairstyles

Beachy waves, boho braids and hair inspired by Brigitte Bardot, here are 3 everyday hairstyles that are here to stay for the new season...

1. Beachy Waves

One of summer’s favourite styles, waves and curls are here to stay for autumn. The point of difference is a big injection of volume.

Tip

Play around with your parting. Go for a messy middle parting for a boho vibe or a clean side-parting to keep your style lady-like.

Wear it now...

Apply a texturizing spray all over before rough drying with your head upside down for root lift. Next, take random sections of hair – ignoring the very ends - and wrap them around Cloud Nine’s Wand before releasing and allowing to cool. Finish by running your fingers through the curls to break them up into softer waves.

Apply...

Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique Nourishing Care to prevent heat damage from your hairdryer and curling tong. We love how this lightweight cream makes styles last longer too.

2. 60’s TEXTURE

All hail Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin for this trend which is all about tousled hair with lots of body.

Wear It Now...

Now while this look is very glamorous, the desired texture is dishevelled (think also of Kate Moss' iconic slept-in style). Create height at the crown by applying a root lifter before drying with your head upside down for maximum body. If you find root lifting products make your hair look greasy, you can opt for velcro rollers instead.

Once 80% dry, flip your head back over and continue to dry your hair with a round bristle brush to smooth out any frizz. For a sexy tousled finished, take random sections of hair, wrap them around a medium curling iron and allow to cool. Remember this is meant to look more undone than done so don't worry if it's not perfect.

Apply...

Color Wow Pop and Lock Crystallite Shellac . 'I’ve got a lot of hair but it’s very fine and this is one of my absolute essentials because it doesn’t weigh it down or leave it looking like it needs a good wash' Alice Manning.

Tip

Creating this texture and volume can leave hair looking matte. If you like your style to have expensive shine, as seen at Emilio Pucci.

3. MAKING the BRAID

From Fendi to Valentino, a variety of braids featured on the runways. For a quick and easy everyday version, go for a traditional three way plait.

Tip

Follow the hairstylists at Valentino and secure the elastic about one inch from the ends for a cool finish.

Wear It Now...

Start by prepping hair with a smoothing serum before drying, then run straighteners over the mid-lengths and ends to prevent frizz and make hair more manageable. Go with your regular parting, plait the hair and secure with a snag-free elastic.

Apply...

TIGI Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray on mid-lengths and ends before plaiting to create gorgeous wavy texture when you let your hair down.
