Here’s a conundrum. How to bust oneself out of a hairstyle rut season after season without having to resort to a major cut or colour. For the 99.9 percent of us who are follicly risk-averse, there’s a noncommittal solution: texture. Variations of slicked styles are appearing on runways and red carpets everywhere — good news for those nervous about looking like they’ve just stepped out of the shower, yet who feel that tousled beach waves are too old hat. That’s why we love this new mix of the two; the freshness comes from the juxtaposition of sleek and dry texture. Sound like this should be left to a professional? With expert guidance, it doesn’t have to be.
