Beauty trend: Get me bod­ied

Say farewell to your heat stylers

Good news: this sea­son’s big­gest hair­style is your own, but bet­ter. The key is to en­hance those in­built curls, waves, twists and fly­aways. “It’s amaz­ing when you let your hair dry nat­u­rally,” hair stylist Guido Palau said back­stage at Akris. “A lot of women don’t know what their nat­u­ral tex­ture is re­ally like. They’re so used to blow-dry­ing and styling, that they might have amaz­ing tex­ture and never know it.” His re­sponse: a se­ries of styles that cel­e­brated each girl’s nat­u­ral hair, with only a whis­per of hair oil dis­pensed to con­trol frizz.

For your own model-on-duty look, cleanse with a tex­tur­is­ing sham­poo. If you must use con­di­tioner, pick one that im­parts a lit­tle grit. While still wet, use a small amount of oil to lock in mois­ture, then leave your hair to air dry. Pull slightly damp hair into a messy, loose bun and se­cure with pins, leav­ing it in while you go about the rest of your makeup. When you take your hair out, loosen the waves and gen­tly set with a light, matte spray. Seek­ing some­thing bolder? Look to Bar­bara Casasola’s free-spir­ited, raw beauty. Aveda’s Jon Rey­man gave models or­ganic ex­ag­ger­a­tions to their nat­u­ral waves or straight hair, which was boosted with vo­lu­miser be­fore be­ing twisted into de­fined curls. If you’re al­ready blessed with curly locks, sim­ply ap­ply a vo­lu­mis­ing spray from root to tip, comb­ing through with fin­gers. Take this nat­u­ral raw­ness into the skin with mois­tur­is­ing balm ap­plied as high­light.
