Summer Hair Trend: The Textured Twist
Published Jun 07, 2011
This summer, we embrace the frizz, the fuzz, and the fly-aways! The dry, texturized waves that we've seen on the runway and the red carpet are a perfect low-maintenance hair style for summer. Curls and waves get a grungy-chic finish that's easy to style at any length. "They're simple and effortless, but totally on trend," according to Gisele Bündchen's celebrity hair stylist and John Frieda Creative Consultant, Harry Josh. We gave you the breakdown for Elizabeth Olsen and Scarlett Johanssen's frizzed waves, but here are some extra tips from Harry to perfect your summer waves this season.
"Mousse is a total must-have for waves. It gives this amazing texture once dry—essential for this look! While hair is damp, apply a golf ball size amount on shorter hair and a baseball size on longer hair, working from scalp to mid-section."
"Once your hair is dry, coil hair in sections around a one-inch curling iron," advises Harry. "Hold the iron vertically and wrap your hair around the barrel like tinsel on a Christmas tree. Curl the hair for few seconds and then let it loose. Repeat for the whole head."
"This step is pivotal for texture," explains Harry. "Brush the curls out with a flat paddle brush and give the style a messy and undone finish. Spritz with a light hold hairspray, give your waves a tousle, and you're good to go!"
