Gigi Hadid's Beachy Waves

Want to achieve Gigi Hadid’s look at home? Just follow these four steps and you’ll be well on your way to having super model hair.

STEP 1.

Start with hair that is still a little wet (about 80% dry), apply the Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam, focusing on the roots for volume, and rough blow dry.

STEP 2.

Take your 1 in. and 3/4 in. curling irons and alternate irons and the size of the sections you’re curling (Pro Tip: make sure that the curls that frame your face are all curled away from your face!)  “You end up with more of an authentic beach wave than one created by a [/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][single] curling iron.” says Gigi’s hair stylist, Jennifer Yepez, on the set of Calvin Harris’s music video, “How Deep is Your Love”

STEP 3.

Next, gently comb through the waves with your wide-tooth comb, and spray the roots with a little bit of the Davines Hair Refresher for some added volume.

STEP 4.

Finish the look off by lightly spraying the hair with Living Proof’s Texturizing Spray to enhance the beachy texture we’re looking for. “Throughout the day I kept adding more texture using a mix of the salt spray and texturizing spray in the roots,” Yepez says.

Next, grab a 2-3 inch velcro roller and create a somewhat tight curl by placing the roller at the end of your hair, and rolling it towards your scalp, pinning it into place.

STEP 4.

Continue rolling sections into a mohawk fashion starting at the forehead and moving to the nape of the neck. Next, divide the hair at the sides of your head into three sections and roll each new section onto a roller.

STEP 5.

Allow the rollers to air-dry and set or use a hairdryer with a diffuser on a low speed setting if you don’t have time to wait for it to air-dry. Make sure the hair is cool before removing the hair from the curlers if you do decide to use a blowdryer.

STEP 6.

Carefully remove your hair from the rollers and use a wide-tooth comb to gently comb through your curls for a sexy, voluminous wave. Apply a small amount of the Brazilian Blowout Acai Dry Oil for some added shine                                                                                           and finish off by setting the curls with Davines Invisible No Gas                                                                                   Hairspray and you’re all done!

How To: Double French Braid

HOW TO: DOUBLE FRENCH BRAID

Aveda Control Force Hair Spray
$30

 

STEP 1.

Prep hair by applying about a nickel size amount of the Davines Relaxing Moisturizing Fluid to wet or dry hair to eliminate any frizz factor, control the hair, and add some shine. For hair that is coarse, try adding a deeply penetrating oil like our Davines OI Oil.

STEP 2.

Split the hair down the middle using a wide-tooth comb to create two equal sections.

Double French Braid

STEP 3.

Clip away the section that you’re not going to be working in order to create a clean section.

On the other side, grab a small section of hair to begin. Divide the section you picked up into 3 equal sub sections. Begin the inverted French braid (Dutch braid) by crossing the two outside strands under the middle strands. After you make your first few stitches, begin adding hair to the outside strands & continue to braid under.

 

STEP 4.

To tame any fly aways or loose strands of hair, apply some of the Aveda Control Paste. Next, continue to braid all the way down until you reach the nape of the neck & tie off your braid with elastic, leaving the remainder of the hair loose.

Double Dutch French Braid

STEP 5.

Begin an inverted Fishtail braid by splitting your loose hair into two equal sections. Grab a piece from the left strand, cross it under, & merge it with the right strand. Take a piece from the right strand, cross it under again, and merge with the left strand. Continue this process down to the ends of your hair. Simply tie the end with elastic and lightly spray the Aveda Control Force Hairspray to hold any fly aways.

We love the way this looks paired with any outfit. We especially love that it’s another great hair style to help get your hair out of your face & off your neck while still looking polished.

Next, let’s see if you can transform your double braid into a triple braid.

Haircuts for Summer 2016

TRENDING NOW: HAIRCUTS OF THE SEASON

 

Trending Overgrown Bangs

OVERGROWN BANGS

We know what you’re thinking – “bangs aren’t for everyone, plus they require a lot of maintenance!” The best part about these fringe bangs is that you don’t have to suffer through the growing out process & you don’t need to take off too much length! It’s a much more subtle version of the classic bang & it’s not as much of a commitment to the style.

This edgy cut is currently a major trend in the fasion industry. We especially love the bangs to be styled into a less uniform cut so that they fall in a piecey fashion across the forehead.

You can also make this look work whether you have long or short hair, making the look versatile and easy to achieve.

Overgrown Bangs

Blunt Haircut

WE’RE BEING BLUNT HERE

Blunt bobs are nothing new, but they are bigger & longer than ever.

If you have naturally straight & thick hair, then this cut is the one for you. Unfortunately, those with wavy or coarse hair won’t get quite the same effect.

Styling Tip: Keep your hair straight at the ends! Do not flip the ends under with a round brush while styling – this will defeat the entire purpose of the look & ruin the blunt edge.

Trending Kinky Curls

LARGE & IN CHARGE KINKY CURLS

Finding the right cut for naturally curly and voluminous hair can be a real challenge. The key here is to have your stylist cut your hair when it’s styled naturally & dry. Try asking for shorter layers to give a rounder look to the hair if you have a ton of bounce and volume, as longer layers will weigh the hair down.

The cut gives a fresh & flattering bohemian vibe – we love this look!

Large Kinky Curls

Summer Haircut TrendsBABY BANGS

Pairing straight, blunt bangs with wavy hair was once frowned upon – but we’re embracing the textural differences in 2016. If you keep your hair smooth at the roots, the two styles can blend well.

As we mentioned, bangs can be a little high-maintenance, but simply blow out with a round brush to smooth & straighten and leave your hair naturally textured.

MODERN SHAG

“Textured shag is the haircut of the year,” says Dove celebrity stylist Mark Townsend. “Unlike shags of the past, this haircut is all about enhancing your texture – no flatirons or blow-dryers required.”

Just ask your stylist to cut your hair dry into heavy layers. If you want to merge two trends in one, opt for some overgrown bangs.

Play around with your natural texture when you style it at home & use your favorite products to help enhance the look.
