Does anyone else get tired of the standard
wavy beach hair that we see every summer? I do love the easy breezy look and feel of beachy waves, but every now and then I want a super sophisticated, sleek ‘do that will be perfect for a late night summer party, wedding, or just on a day when I don’t want to combat frizz. Look no further than Max Mara. It’s not only
impeccably smooth hair, but it’s slicked and groomed back from the face (there’s no hiding here!). I LOVE it. It’s polished, and oh-so-chic. I asked Justin German, co-owner of
Shagg Salon in Toronto and
Pantene spokesperson for his tips.
“To me the way this is flat, almost tunnel hair, all down the back is quite a strong look,” says Justin. “It’s a nice departure look from flowy, beachy hair. For a girl that really wants to make a statement and is really secure with slicking it off their face, this is a great look.”
Step 1: Start by shampooing with an anti-frizz cleanser and conditioner. This is a look that really calls for no fly-aways.
Step 2: “On wet hair put the
Pantene Medium-Thick Hair Solutions Heat Protection & Shine Spray,” says Justin. “This will lead into keeping fly-aways and frizz away because there’s an anti-humidity protectant in that.”
