This summer I’m taking a new approach to my hair. I’m going to work with my natural texture instead of against it. That means I’m going to accept my
natural, imperfect waves instead of forcing them into curls or a sleek straight ‘do. My main reasons for doing this?
1. I’m tired of spending
way too much time on my hair in the morning – I’d rather some more shut eye minutes!
2. I want to give my over-processed hair a break from styling and products. Jorge Joao,
Redken Artist and stylist at
KOI Hair Studio also got me hooked on this idea. “It’s huge right now to embrace your natural texture,” he insists. “Use very minimal product and it means less maintenance. The humidity can be our biggest enemy, so take advantage your own texture and use what you have. The less work and artificial tools you use, the better your hair will look.” Hmm, ok, so I asked Jorge to give me a cute example of how to do something fun and simple to your hair, without all the product and styling, and we came up with this look from the Charlotte Ronson runway. Here are the simple ways to get this look if you’re letting your natural texture shine through. Seriously, it’s only two steps!
