Parks’ emphasises the incredible versatility of this up-to-the-minute look. “With braided styles, we’re stepping up the effect of traditional braids with everything from braided updos to ballerina crowns,” she said. “Depending on which braid style is used and how it’s placed, you can go from boho-beachy to elegant-chic.”
“Lustrous, sleek bobs have been popping up all over the place, from Hollywood to Fashion Week Australia,” Parks said. “The trick to pulling off a bob is to work with your stylist to get the right cut that frames and flatters your face.” Parks suggests a middle part to keep your hair on-trend and using a shine-enhancing hair oil to calm frizz and give it an ultra-sleek finish.
“The ‘80s are back with all stops out,” Parks said. “We’re seeing this with full blowouts and lots of hair accessories.” To get the look she suggests applying a volumising product such as Kérastase’s Mousse Bouffante Volumising Mousse on washed hair before blow-drying it out with a round brush.
Au Naturel Textures
“This season we’re embracing beachy mermaid hair with natural tresses that are loose and wavy,” Parks said. She recommends spraying your hair with a texturising spritz such as Kérastase’s Matérialiste Spray Gel before gently scrunching. After it’s dry, you can use styling tongs to create soft, natural waves, alternating the direction of each curl.
