Su­per silky locks don’t come easily, even if you have straight hair. Start by wet­ting the hair, then ap­ply heat pro­tec­tion and blow-dry sec­tions smooth us­ing a pad­dle brush or large round brush. Hair­styl­ist Saadique Ryk­lief says it ’s im­por­tant to nour­ish your hair be­fore us­ing a straight­ener – use a blob of hair food the size of a R1 coin on African hair, and a smooth­ing serum on Cau­casian hair. Once the hair is com­pletely smoothed out, blow in the ends for ex­tra pol­ish. For an in­ter­est­ing take on the om­bré lip, make-up artist Liz van der Merwe dabs a fin­ger of eye shadow on to a dark berry lip and pushes it in with her fin­ger­tips for a cool matte ef­fect.
