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.
