DO sport un­done tex­ture

Glamour Hair - - Glamour Hair Hairama -

Tex­ture is such a big trend, and it ap­pears ef­fort­less. Back­stage hair guru Guido Palau, global cre­ative direc­tor for Red­ken who has worked on Prada, Ver­sace and Dior shows, says, “A lot of women have great nat­u­ral tex­ture and they don’t even re­alise it.” Try Guido’s three-step guide for rock­ing yours.

Step 1 Start in the shower

If your hair is thick, wavy, kinky or curly, be­gin with a rich con­di­tion­ing mask to smooth it out. But if your hair is fine and limp and needs more body, opt for a tex­ture-boost­ing sham­poo in­stead.

Step 2 Ap­ply a leave-in

“Towel-dry your hair a lit­tle more than usual,” says Guido, then comb through a leave-in con­di­tioner, like Red­ken Cur­va­ceous Con­di­tioner For All Curl Types (R369). It can be washed out or kept in to tame fly­aways and de­fine your tex­ture.

Step 3 En­hance it

If your hair is nat­u­rally straight, add move­ment with braids or a strate­gic tuck: put al­most-dry hair in two or three loose braids overnight for beachy bends, or tuck loose, damp hair be­hind your ear while you get ready for work. “When you un­tuck it, there’s a wave be­hind your ear that’s re­ally soft­en­ing to the face,” Guido ex­plains.
