HAIR TYPE: THIN

I wish I had the abil­ity to grow gor­geous long locks, but sadly my hair­dresser pretty much forces me to cut inches off as it breaks eas­ily oth­er­wise. But fine hair comes with a bless­ing – and that, guys, is man­age­abil­ity. So when sum­mer comes knock­ing, air-dry styling is my ev­ery day. Here’s how I do it...

LOOPED Bun

I leave my hair down un­til it’s just damp, then comb some Redken No Blow Dry Airy Cream, £17.50, through be­fore loop­ing it into a bun at the nape of my neck. I wait an hour or two be­fore tak­ing the style out, then once dry I ap­ply some serum – and I’m done.

CRIMPING PLAITS

I love the boho beach wave ef­fect when I’m on holiday. Ap­ply VO5 Beach Waves Styling Foam, £4.39, all over, then plait hair into six sec­tions. Wait un­til it feels dry (su­perquick if you’re on hols), take out the braids and then smooth a serum over.

nat­u­ral CURLS

Af­ter wash­ing my hair, I ditch the towel and opt for a T-shirt in­stead (it’s softer and kinder on curls). Af­ter about 0 min­utes, I ap­ply a pea-sized amount of serum just to smooth the cu­ti­cle, then scrunch my hair up­side down with Bum­ble & bum­ble Surf In­fu­sion Spray, £22. The com­bi­na­tion of oil and sea salt means you get that beachy look with­out the crunch. I then let na­ture take its course. Only once it’s dry do I find my part­ing, by flip­ping my hair around un­til it sits in its most nat­u­ral po­si­tion. Any un­ruly curls can then be tamed with a lit­tle more serum, and that’s it – I’m good to go. Try­ing to tame my hair is still a hit-and-miss job, but with this new rou­tine I’m hav­ing far more good hair days than be­fore.

HAIR TYPE: CURLY

I’ve spent over 10 years bat­tling with (and bleach­ing) my au na­turel curls, which now come com­plete with a lot of frizz. This style works for both holiday nights and muggy city days, so I’m em­brac­ing air-dry hair. Plus it means an ex­tra hour in bed!
