THE ULTRA-CHIC PONYTAIL

Spotted on the runways at fashion shows by Chanel, Lanvin and Mansur Gavriel, a low wrapped ponytail is feminine, original and sensual. Whether you’re at work, the beach or enjoying an elegant evening out, this look goes great with both casual and glamorous styles.

The ideal hairstyle for: long hair without much layering.

The necessary tools:

  • Two elastic bands
  • Hair scarf
  • Flat iron
  • Anti-static hairbrush
  • Light hairspray

Step by step:

First, separate your (completely dry) hair with a central part, then straighten your hair strand by strand with the flat iron.

Use an anti-static brush to tame frizzes and control flyaways. Make a low ponytail and tie it with an elastic, then tie the second elastic about halfway down the ponytail.

Next, insert one of the ends of the scarf into the upper elastic.

Wrap the entire scarf around the ponytail, then tuck the leftover end into the lower elastic. Finish by spraying your ’do with a light-hold hairspray.

L’EFFET MOUILLÉ AVEC (OU SANS) BANDEAU

THE WET LOOK WITH (OR WITHOUT) A HEADBAND

If you’ve been watching the runways of Emilio Pucci, Etro, Prada and Miu Miu, you’ll have noticed a new take on the “wet effect” for a style that’s beyond cool. While its “holiday in Ibiza” look is delightful, you’ll love its practicality, since this trend is actually made up of two hairstyles! During the day, wear it with a hair scarf that’s not only a beautiful accessory, but will help set your wet look so you can proudly wear it out at night without a headband. It’s the perfect two-in-one style if you’re always in a rush!

The ideal hairstyle for:

shoulder-length hair, with no bangs or too much layering.

The necessary tools:
  • Curling iron
  • Hair dryer
  • Hairbrush
  • Headband
  • Extra-hold hairspray

Step by step:

Start by drying your hair while brushing it back to prepare the shape of your wet look.

Curl your hair with a curling iron. For a more natural look, vary the size and direction of your locks: curled to the left, and to the right, half-half.

Apply a good dose of extra-hold hairspray to your tresses, from the ears to the top of the head, then brush the hair back. For a wet look that goes the distance, make sure your hair is soaked in the styling product, right to the root.

Tie the headband over the “wet” area by making one or two knots at the top of your head. The ends of the scarf can be placed loosely to the left or right side. This is your day look!

At night, simply remove the headband and you’ll be good to go. Hello wet look!

SUPERCHARGED
WAVES

We spotted these wild, ultra-voluminous, high-watt tresses at fashion shows by House of Holland, Nina Ricci, Kenzo and Off-White. Waves, curls, spirals, ripples, crimps—a lion’s mane is all the rage this season! But careful! This pumped-up hairstyle that’s reminiscent of the ’80s is less sculpted and has looser curls than back in the day. Rather than go for a fully crimped style, you want your look to be fairly natural.

The ideal hairstyle for:

all hair types, but women with longer, thicker hair will have an easier time pulling off this trend.

The necessary tools:
  • Curling iron
  • Small curling iron (3/4 in)
  • A few hairpins
  • Hairbrush
  • Texturizing spray or medium-hold hairspray

Allow your hair to air dry.

Next, curl all your hair, varying the width of the strands and alternating between the two irons.

03

Curl each strand and fasten with a hairpin. This step allows you to properly define your curls.

Once your tresses are fully curled, remove the pins and tilt your head downward. Use the brush to lightly undo the curls and generously backcomb your hair, starting at the ends and making your way to the root. Set your style with a texturizing spray or medium-hold hairspray. XXL hair guaranteed!

THE PULL BACK
WITH CASUAL
CURLS

In this style, curls and pulled-back tresses join forces for one of the season’s hottest looks. If you like to wear your hair loose, but hate having it in your eyes, you’ll love this casual-chic hairstyle spotted on runways by designers like Dior, Gucci, Anna Sui, Alexander Wang and Victoria Beckham. It’s a style that goes great with every look, whether bohemian, sophisticated or rock star!

Step by step:

The ideal hairstyle for: shoulder-length to long hair.


The necessary tools:
  • Curling iron
  • Flat iron
  • Hairbrush
  • A few hairpins
  • Hair elastic

Separate your dry hair into three sections: above, centre and under. Curl each section differently: the first with curls to the left; the second with curls to the right; and the third with half-half waves. This technique will give your tresses a casual look. Depending on the effect you’re going for, you can also decide to lightly undo the curls with a brush or your fingers for results that are less sculpted and more natural.

TIP

What about your bangs? For a beautiful wave, start by centrally parting them. With the curling iron, curl the left portion to the left, and the right portion to the right. Next, comb your bangs to the side for glamorous, voluminous ripples.

Using the flat iron, straighten two large sections of hair on top of the head.

Fasten the hair behind your head with hairpins placed two by two to form chevrons.

Variation of the pull back

You can also take a thin section of hair on each side of the head, then simply pull them back and attach them with an elastic for a simple, elegant look!
