Hot hair for hot weather
Q: Wet hair still happening for this season – but it’s not dripping like you just stepped out of the pool. What makes it new?
A: “There was a minute there on shoots where all I was using was dry shampoo and products for beachy texture. Now it’s definitely more like shine products are back – you want to add polish. For the wet look, it’s not clinging to skin where you can’t see the face – it’s swept back. Hair shouldn’t look soaking wet but shiny. To achieve, I would put Pantene BB Crème on wet hair and let it air dry.”
Q: We’re moving on from beachy waves. What’s next for curls?
A: “We did so much of this where we only curled half way down or curled hair and left the end out, but real curls are back! Like a proper spiral curl from root to end. And then of course you’re going to mess it up too – it still can’t be perfect. I see it on someone who has curly hair already – and they’re trying to make it a little bit like, dare I say, Flashdance.”
Q: What’s the new summer updo?
A: “I’ve seen a couple easy-peasy knots – pieces hanging out, tucked back behind the ear. Really easy.”
Q: It seems like every celebrity has hair so long and straight they could almost sit on it. Without extensions, how do you achieve this look?
A: “I did three or four shoots a while ago and people weren’t ready for straight hair but I feel like it’s the freshest thing. It’s not flat iron stick straight like we were doing early 2000s – it’s more luxe, still blown out it still has a bit of weight and bounce. There’s something that’s so simple and chic about it again. It’s super-duper luxe, glossy and straight. I feel like the difference is with the stick straight hair last time around, it was so broken up at the ends, all of the hair was point-cut to death where everything was spindly and wispy at the bottom. While this straight haircut isn’t neccesarily blunt cut at the bottom, but there’s more of a weight to it. The flat iron is used more as a finishing tool rather than fully pressing the hair. Again, we are looking for product that give you a little bit of sheen. You don’t have to be ashamed if your hair is a bit shiny!”
