Inside NYFW: Hair tips to know now!
Last season was all about individuality. What trends are emerging now?
In fashion, there is a real regalness to the trends: rich colours, statement pieces, textures like velvet, lace, mesh and fishnets.
Any tips for how you can adapt a look from the runway for real life?
Have fun with it! Don’t take it too seriously. Experiment with hair products and get creative – you can always wash it out if you don’t like it.
You’ve worked with the Kardashians and Kerry Washington. What is the easiest red-carpet look to achieve at home?
Shiny, healthy, straight hair with a middle parting. Simply wash your hair, spray on a heat-protectant and blowdry smooth with the dryer nozzle aiming towards the floor. When you’re done, create a clean centre parting and then use a ghd platinum flatiron to smooth the hair from roots to tips. Add a serum and hold with hairspray.
Is it better to have a signature style, or to shake up your look each season?
Beauty and fashion are impermanent, so it great to experiment and have fun with it! I used to be very daring and creative in what I did with my hair and makeup and what I wore, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve found that I love having more of a simple, signature look. It really just depends on your personality and your lifestyle.
What are the biggest hair mistakes you see women making?
One of the biggest hair mistakes women make is not using a heat protectant on their hair or the right styling tools. I love using TRESemmé Heat Defence Styling Spray before heat styling to prevent damage but using high-quality tools are equally important.
