Just like in our Spring/Summer 2016 Trend Report, one of the Fall/Winter 2016 runway hair trends is to embrace natural curly texture.

We love this  because it means far less damage is caused to our clients hair from the over use of curling irons, flat irons, & blow dryers. Of course we believe in using all of those things. However, it’s great to give your hair a break every now and then. Plus it’s currently on trend so why not give it a go?

Instead of blowing your hair out straight, if you have some natural wave to your hair – shampoo & condition at night, apply a little volumizing mousse (ie. the Davines Volumizing Mousse) and let it air dry over night.

Trust me, you’ll wake up with voluminous toussled hair from sleeping on it over night. This technique has been truly life changing for my own hair and I’ve been able to drastically reduce the damage to my hair over the years by embracing my natural texture.

Coming from a girl who religiously straightened her hair for years, I assure you that you start to get used to & even love your natural hair texture after a little while. I suggest investing in some high quality styling products to help bring out the natural wave or curl. This will help to make sure that it doesn’t look like you just rolled out of bed (in a bad way).

Check out the Be Curly line by Aveda – which is especially great for bringing out the curl in your hair. The line includes everything from shampoo, conditioner, a curl controller cream, serum, hairspray, & more which are all specifically designed to strengthen & intensify your curls.

MAKE WAVES

This trend is essentially following our “embrace your natural texture” theme. Curls can be styled with curling irons with those that have naturally straight hair, but sometimes the best & most natural looking waves come from sleeping with braids & adding a little moisturizing serum (ie. The Davines Curl Building Serum) for some added slip.

Imperfections are accepted on the runway this season. In fact, hair stylist Orlando Pita added them in at the at the BCBG show where he used a flat iron to create fake cowlicks near the part on one side of the head.

What a lot of the shows had in common was pairing the more natural textures with a center part. Why part it in the center? This gives the hair a softer, cooler, and much more easy going vibe.

Think french style simplicity.

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.

[/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”]

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.

Gigi Hadid's Beachy Waves

Voila! You’ve created your own, Gigi Hadid inspired, beachy waves! Now you can rock this look all summer long. Plus, you can easily dress this hairstyle up or down depending on your outfit.

What Is Eyebrow Threading?

MTMH: ALL ABOUT EYEBROW THREADING

Eyebrow Threading

WHAT IS EYEBROW THREADING?

The art of threading is an ancient hair removal technique with origins in Asia.

A thin (cotton & polyester) thread is doubled, twisted, and rolled along the surface of the skin to quickly lift the hair from the follicle.

Threading is the most precise hair removal technique for getting rid of unwanted facial hair. It allows for more control over the shape of the eyebrows and is great for anyone with chemical sensitivities. Threading is also an excellent option for removing unwanted hair on the upper lip & entire face, as well as eyebrows.

Eyebrow Threading

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THREADING?

Threading removes even the finest and shortest hair with ease & doesn’t leave the area swollen or red since it’s such a gentle process.

It allows for the sharpest eyebrow form & definition – much more so than you could achieve with tweezing!

Threading is quick, inexpensive, lasts 3-6 weeks, & the hair grows back finer than before!
