If the poetic bohemian and the sophisticated couture junky spawned a love child, you’d end up with this season’s spring/summer hair trend – a throwback to the seventies peace, love and now, polished hair.
Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion is all about a nod to the seventies; but not the old, super busy, brightly colored, patterned seventies. This season’s look is a retrospective of seventies silhouettes more so than a direct copy of the original. We love it; it looks so fresh and perfect for spring and summer.
A Softer Mood
To keep pace with this look we have softened the look of our winter hair and added movement. Think Veruschka and Lauren Hutton; that sort of polished natural finish that makes you think that perhaps, you would have this hair if you just had a tiny bit more time in the day.
It has an ‘I do not care’ feeling mixed with ‘yes I get my hair done’. Think Boho goes couture. This melding of moods might seem difficult to achieve but is actually quite simple and so sexy when done right. The disheveled wave has gone glamour and is less natural than the last time around. This wave is polished and sexier.
Boho Couture for the Straight Girl
With this look it is better to start off with a bit of extra volume than not enough. Add Instantly Thick™ Hair Thickening Cream to clean, wet hair and use your fingers to add the volume needed. Flip hair over and try to work up as much volume at the crown as you can. Dry as you normally would.
Once hair is dry spray a section with Pro Finish Ultimate Hold Hairspray and, starting at the crown, roll the sections in large Velcro rollers. The larger the rollers the looser the wave. Keep the sections neat but don’t fuss if they are not even; this will help to keep your finished look polished but natural. Leave the rollers in as you prep for work (about 30 minutes).
When ready take out the rollers, add a bit of Moisture Gloss™ Daily Drops to your fingertips, toss your head forward and gently work it through your hair for a bit of polish. When you flip back touch up any wayward bits with the remaining product and give yourself a light spray of Hairspray for hold. Voila! Sexy spring hair.
Boho Couture for the Curly Girl
This will take a bit of work, but it is not overly complicated. Spray Style Straight™ Blow Straight Potion to clean, wet hair.
If you have wavy to loose curls flip head over and dry hair as you gently tug it straighter. You want to use your hands to remove some of the curl as it dries. Once hair is 75% dry use a large round brush to smooth out any frizz your natural curls may have. When hair is finally smooth, spray well with Pro Finish Ultimate Hold Hairspray and begin to add Velcro rollers section by section like your straighter counterpart. Once you remove the rollers, finish with Moisture Gloss™ Daily Drops for a touch of shine.
If you have tight curls blow dry using a comb attachment to stretch out the curl. Once hair is dry curl your hair in random sections using a large barrel curling iron and alternating the direction of each curl. If you end up with too much volume at the crown, use the curling iron to smooth out some of the volume. Finish with a light layer of Moisture Gloss™ Daily Drops and Voila! Curly girls can go Boho Couture too.
