Go bold and beautiful with hairdos this monsoon
New Delhi, June 27 (IANS) Go all out with experimenting and revamping your hairstyle this season. A little hippie, a little bold, a little too classy, a little too sassy — try out some funky looks this monsoon, says an expert.
Audrey D’souza, educator at international luxury hairstyling brand TIGI Bed Head, decodes some hairdos that you can flaunt this season.
Shampoo and condition your hair. Once done, rinse your hair with cold water for a minute. Rinsing it with cool water adds shine and reduces frizz.
Apply a quarter-size amount of serum to your damp towel-dried hair to keep your strands smooth.
Comb your hair through and pull back as low and high you would like it to be and fix it with a rubber-band (depending on the density you can fix it as tight or lose you want).
Then place a segment of hair on the rubber-band to hide it and secure with u-pins.
Use a finishing product to fix the look.
* Fishtail braid:
Shampoo and condition your hair.
Use a quarter-size amount of serum. Rub the serum over your hands, and then run your fingers thru.
Divide the hair in two sections, add a segment of hair from the left to the right and the make it as tight as you can, feed a segment from the right to the left keeping the grip tight.
Make sure the section is at least one inch so that you can see the definition of the braid more clearly.
If braided too tight, use your nails to pull out the strands and give it a softer look.
* Messy bun:
Shampoo your hair for a clean scalp and shinier mid-lengths.
Starting at the roots, back comb using a tail comb and then mid lengths and ends to create extra texture and volume.
Brush your hair and secure the top section in the middle or at the side depending on your face shape, to create a bouffant or leave it as a side sweep depending on your preference.
On the mid-lengths and ends, either with your fingers or a curling wand, create texture and definition depends the curl you want to achieve as tight or loose as possible.
Take random sections and pin them up depending as low or as high, side or middle you would like your bun to be created.
* Sugar shock waves:
Cleanse your hair with shampoo and then condition your hair.
Use two to three pumps of a volumising product on damp hair for the waves to be formed.
For better definition, you can also let your hair dry naturally post applying the product and use a curling wand from your mid lengths to ends.
If you have very straight hair, or even if you are looking for a bit more hold and definition, twist and clip it loosely till your hair absorbs the product.
In the end, hold your hair tight so that the waves last for much longer (just use the scrunch technique).
