Amp up the curls this season, with styles that work texture and spirals.
SALON-LIKE LOOPED FISHTAIL
STEP #1 This textured look is a casual and effortless updo for out- ofcontrol curls. Start by washing and conditioning with the Smooth & Shine range to keep the frizz under control, and shape the curls instead of turning them into one big mess. Blow- dry, and scrunch hair to add texture.
STEP #2 To make the most of your texture, do not comb your hair. Combing breaks up the curls, making them look frizzy. Then create a fishtail plait by braiding two sections instead of three into each other, right till you reach the very end. Secure this plait with a rubber band.
STEP #3 The final step is super- easy. Just roll the plait into the underside of the hair and secure it in place with bobby pins. Leave the front loose and textured to keep the style looking current. Too much neatness in this style will make it look stiff and without any movement.
SALON-LIKE TWISTED BRAIDS
STEP #1 This classic milkmaid style has been modernised with curls and texture. To keep the strands in control, wash and condition first with the Smooth & Shine range. The last rinse after shampooing must be with cold water as that closes the cuticles, controlling frizz and adding shine.
STEP #2 Once hair is dry (air dry or use a blow- dryer), scrunch to enhance the curls and part hair into two sections. Make a braid on either side of the head starting one a bit higher than the other so that the braids can eventually be crossed over and pinned above or below each other.
STEP #3 Take each braid and pin it on the other side making an X-shaped cross. If the braid is too long, loop it back along the cross and pin it so it looks like a single strand of braid. While pinning, ensure that you slide the pins under and not over the hair so that they don’t show through. Finish with shine spray.
