HairSlay for AW17

    New hair, who’s this?
Autumn is my favourite time of year! From the clothes, converting to darker lipsticks, the build up to Christmas and of course my birthday! But one thing that is often not thought of is the type of hairstyles you can experiment with. I especially love going for loose waves during this time of year because I feel as though it represents and reflects perfectly the essence of autumn. Not to get all poetic but I feel as though the looseness of the hair mirrors the gradual change towards the end of the year and how the leaves start to fall away.
One product in particular which has caught my eye is a hair straightener, which has the perfect plate width to create the most enviable loose waves/curls. Having a frontal can be hard work so it’s great to have a product which makes styling easy. Below is a step-by-step guide to achieve a similar look!

1. Begin by placing the middle of a section of hair into a flat iron to create the first wave. Then, feed the piece in between the flat iron clamps in an “S” curve formation, clamping down on the shape to create the bends. Repeat these steps to end of the hair.

2. Alternatively, you can braid your hair and then use a flat iron on your braided hair to seal the waves/curls in place. Remember girls, it’s key to use a heat protector spray before using hot tools on your hair to minimize damage!

3. Using a flat iron like the Panasonic EH-HS95 above, feed a 1-inch section of hair closest to the nape of your neck in between  the flat iron. From there, twist your wrist away from your face, so the hair flows over (not under) the iron. Make sure the hair continues to wrap around the flat iron’s barrel as you push the iron toward your ends, which will create the curl. Think of this technique in the same way you’d curl a ribbon with a scissor. Key tip!:, the smaller the section, the curlier your hair will be. 😉
