Hair bends — we tried it
I’ve found it. My dream, go-to,
always-looks-good hairstyle. It’s only taken me 32 years, but it was worth the wait. It’s the hair bend. Not a wave, not a crimp, not a curl, just a subtle bend. According to Mark Townsend, celebrity hairstylist for Dove, “bends” is the latest buzzword for hair texture, and for me it is the best no-fuss, compliment-inspiring hairstyle.
HOW TO PULL IT OFF:
1. Before bed, wash and blow-dry your hair as usual, leaving it slightly damp. Twist it into a bun at the nape of your neck and loosely secure it with an elastic band.
2. When you wake up, shake out your hair and spritz with dry shampoo along the roots for a boost of volume and texture (if needed). It should have a little bend where it was twisted.
3. To frame your face, wrap a few one-inch pieces at the front around a medium-barrel curling iron for five to 10 seconds. (Avoid the roots and the ends; focus on the midsection.) Then rough up your hair with your fingers and prep for your selfie.
