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.

STEP 2.

Remove a two-inch chunk of hair at your front hairline, and clip the rest of the hair at your crown & out of the way. Spray the section with the Davines Invisible No Gas Hairspray.

STEP 3.

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!

Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Hair Trends

TRENDING NOW: S/S 2016 RUNWAY HAIR

Runway Trends SS2016

Hair Trends SS 2016EMBRACE THE NATURAL YOU

One trend that we’ve noticed on the runway and in the magazines is embracing and playing around with natural texture. The Stella McCartney fashion show “celebrated the individual” by leaving mass amounts of styling products on the shelves and opting for last-minute haircuts only when needed. Models are embracing their natural hair texture!

What we love about this look is that it’s ridiculously low maintenance & easy to ‘achieve’. Plus, it’s a style that’s pretty much become part of my daily routine for the past few years. But, make no mistake – I was seriously guilty of over-straightening my hair (every day) for a good chunk of time there. In fact, I was so uncomfortable with my naturally beachy waves, that I ended up damaging my hair pretty badly from overusing heat styling tools.

I knew my hair needed some serious TLC when it started air drying perfectly straight after a shower. I’ve embraced my natural texture for years and it’s the best thing I could have done!

Anyone can rock this look, just get comfortable in your own skin!

Hair Trends SS2016


Hair Trends SS2016GET A GRIP

 

Gone are the wispy & loose bohemian braids we’ve come to love over the last few years – Spring/Summer of 2016 is all about sleek and tight braids. Of course you can still rock loose braids if that’s your thing. But we still recommend  trying out this modern chic twist to your classic braid and keep your knots edgy.

These braids are all about keeping your hold on the hair extra tight while you’re braiding. It’s pretty easy, really, but you can get as creative as you want with it.

Louis Vuitton chose to work with smaller peek-a-boo braids to add subtle texture in their S/S 2016 show, while Valentino opted for cornrow-esque braids for an edgier look.

Learn How To Style Your Hair Based On Your Natural Texture

Learning how to accentuate your natural hair texture means keeping your styling time to a minimum and your hair at it’s healthiest. Here’s how to do it…

STRAIGHT HAIR

Straight Hair Natural Texture

[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][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”]

Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine
Aveda Brilliant         Spray-On Shine                   $28

How To Style: If your natural texture is straight, emphasizing the shine and health of your hair is key. How to make the most of your straight hair? Use a deep-cleansing shampoo and follow up with a lightweight conditioner, focusing the product only on the ends. Be sure to avoid using too many styling products, which can have the effect of weighing down your hair and flattening it. Instead, we suggest blow-drying with a nozzle and a smooth paddle brush. Pull the hair taut with the brush and aim the air towards the ends.  Finish the style with a straightening iron, if necessary, and add a shine serum to get that light reflecting shampoo-commercial hair.

Bonus Tip: Girls with straight hair should avoid pointing the blow dryer directly into your hair – this will cause frizz! Instead tilt the dryer down and use a low setting to dry.

WAVY HAIR

Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse
Living Proof              Full               Thickening      Mousse $27

How To Style: If you wake up with a natural wavy texture that looks like you just came from a beach vacation – count yourself lucky! The best thing to do to style your hair is to let it air dry. Simply brush when wet and apply a little volumizing mousse to the roots in a scrunching motion to accentuate your curls and spritz on a sea salt spray. If you want to apply some heat, attach a diffuser to the end of your dryer and on the lowest setting, take sections of your hair from root to tip and place inside the diffuser and against your head until dry.

Bonus Tip: For a more styled effect like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, take a 1 inch clipless curling iron and wrap large sections around the barrel changing the direction facing away from and towards your face. Spray with a light hold hairspray and you’re done!

THICK/CURLY HAIR

Davines Curl Building Serum
Davines Curl Building Serum $26

How To Style: To get the most out of your naturally thick and curly hair, apply a curl-building serum from the mid-shaft to ends to wet hair and rough blow dry on a medium-low setting until hair is about 80% dry.  Roll your hair from ends to root into large Velcro rollers. Pin the roller in and allow to air dry and cool while you apply your makeup or eat breakfast. Once the hair is completely dry, remove the rollers and tousle your hair to break up the curls a bit. Spray with some strong hairspray and you’re done!

Bonus Tip: When applying styling products, don’t use too much! Take the time to apply them evenly and only apply more where needed. Be careful not to overdo it.

 

                                            VERY CURLY HAIR

Natural Texture Curly Hair

How To Style: Apply a detangling mask in the shower and gently comb through wet hair with a wide-tooth comb. Spray in a curl enhancer and twist small sections around your finger and release to get a more uniform curl pattern. Lightly blow dry with a diffuser and apply a small amount of oil to the ends to keep your curls looking hydrated and shiny.

Bonus Tip: Make sure that you’re getting a quality haircut specifically tailored to your curly hair. This will help the style to look it’s absolute best.
