DO sport undone texture
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.
