Party hair chal­lenge rosie green tries out two style up­dates

W&h beauty di­rec­tor Rosie Green on how to make sure your style is sexy not stiff

Woman & Home - - In This Issue... -

Spe­cial oc­ca­sions call for spe­cial hair, right? But of­ten all that ef­fort (and if you’re go­ing to the sa­lon – ex­pense) leaves us with tired, stiff hair in­stead. Whereas what we re­ally want is Cate blanchett’s ef­fort­less waves, yet we some­how end up with astro­naut’s wife circa 1960. an age­ing look that’s both over-styled and overblown.

as a beauty edi­tor and ben­e­fi­ciary of a mil­lion styles over the years, I’ve learnt that the trick is not to get too fixed on “spe­cial” hair. If it’s over­worked, it won’t look mod­ern – it’s that sim­ple. Keep the “spe­cial” el­e­ment to in­vest­ing in luxe prod­ucts and tak­ing your time over it rather than go­ing for an elab­o­rate style. “Don’t over­com­pli­cate it,” agrees Kiki Koh, cre­ative di­rec­tor of John Frieda’s ald­ford st sa­lon and the man be­hind my styles. “to look chic, it needs to look ef­fort­less. Even if you went to a sa­lon, it needs to look like you could have done it your­self.”

Cate rocks the wave
