SAY GOODBYE TO BAD HAIR DAYS WITH EXPERT’S AD­VICE

Warwick Daily News - - WEEKEND -

For­get fork­ing out for ex­pen­sive sa­lon blow­dries, there are a num­ber of beauty hacks that can help you achieve per­fect hair for a frac­tion of the cost.

Hair expert Sam Bur­nett, who is the founder and cre­ative di­rec­tor of Hare & Bone sa­lon in London, has re­vealed how to get an en­vi­able mane.

MAKE YOUR OWN WAVES

In­stead of toil­ing with curlers or rollers, why not let your hair take shape while you sleep.

Sam rec­om­mended: “Braid, plait or twist your hair around into a bun be­fore you go to bed when it’s 50 per cent dry.”

LESS IS MORE

Ac­cord­ing to Sam, a com­mon mis­take peo­ple make when try­ing to achieve an un-done look at home is go­ing over­board on hair styling prod­ucts.

He said: “Hair is de­signed to move so in­vest in qual­ity prod­ucts that com­ple­ment its nat­u­ral tex­ture and shape with­out mak­ing it look too struc­tured."

He rec­om­mended us­ing a frizz con­trol lo­tion be­fore leav­ing hair to dry nat­u­rally.

AVOID US­ING A HAIRBRUSH

Nearly ev­ery­one with long hair makes very good use of their brush on a daily ba­sis, but per­haps you should think twice be­fore us­ing it af­ter a shower.

Sam ad­vised: “Bris­tle brushes on wet hair dis­turb the place­ment and struc­ture of the hair, re­sult­ing in ex­cess frizz.

“In­stead, work through the hair with your fin­ger­tips or a wide tooth comb for the most nat­u­ral fin­ish and to en­sure curls and waves stay in place.”

SHAKE HAIR OFF

The hair expert said: “Shak­ing hair up and down can help re­move ex­cess wa­ter within sec­onds.”

He rec­om­mends ditch­ing the rig­or­ous towel-dry, which can ex­ac­er­bate frizz, and gen­tly tou­sling the roots with your fin­ger­tips to aid dry­ing time and re­duce flat­ness.

GET GRITTY

Sam said nat­u­ral hair thrived on tex­ture, which could be cre­ated by mas­sag­ing in tex­ture spray on the mid-lengths and ends.

This cre­ates a soft mal­leable hold with­out the hair look­ing “too done”, ac­cord­ing to the hair pro­fes­sional. – The Sun
