When it comes to hair, I prefer a low-maintenance look over one that will leave my wrists sore (waterfall braids be damned), so when I got my hair styled at TRESemmé during New York Fashion Week, I was content to know that I could easily emulate the airy blowout that’s sweeping the runway. As seen above from the Alice + Olivia show, the hairstyle consists of a smooth top part with a messy or airy lower half. Here’s a less exaggerated example from yours truly:
1. The look works best on day old hair. Spritz TRESemme volumizing dry shampoo on roots and blow dry on low heat. Remember to use a heat protectant spray before heat styling. I like Beauty Protector’s Protect & Detangle.
2. Curl hair with a 1″ – 1 1/4″ inch iron (keep the top part smooth and straight).
3. After curling, gently brush curls with a round brush to create an airy, voluminous effect.
When my stylist started brushing my hair after creating sleek, soft curls, I was confused. But afterward, I decided it looked more timely and effortless than a cleaner blowout (sooo last year). For a sportier option, tie your hair in a low messy ponytail as seen at the Noon by Noor fall 2014 show.
