Effortless beauty is currently in fashion – and in the hair styling arena this translates to embracing your natural texture. Whether your locks are naturally straight or curly, here's how to embrace what your Mama gave you!
Natural Texture: Straight
The hairstyle: Put down the hot tools! There's a misconception that naturally straight hair needs to be manipulated by a blow dryer, iron or curling wand in order to present as polished. Rethink this mind set because the new end goal is straight hair with natural movement.
The style: The beauty of embracing naturally straight hair is it's a look that has an ease about it – making it the perfect weekend or holiday hairstyle. On gorgeous and healthy hair, this look gives off a sophisticated vibe with an 'I just threw this together at the last minute' finish.
What the editors say: Embracing your hair's natural texture is what Mother Nature intended – but she does need a helping hand! To pull off this look your hair needs to be well cut and maintained with regular salon appointments and hydration treatments. After all, there's no styling for your hair to hide behind!
Natural Texture: Curly
The hairstyle: Women with curly hair are often the worst over-straightening offenders. Stop it! This season is all about embracing your natural curly hair texture – including the way that not every natural curl is the same...
The style: Once you get over this idea that every curl need to be identical and precision-perfect, you'll realise how feminine textured curls can be. This natural finish look is great for any casual occasion – from brunch to after work drinks.
What the editors say: One of the main reasons women with curly hair are often desperate to disguise their curls is because of the dreaded frizz factor that comes with them. There's some merit to that - but it doesn't mean having to overwork your curls with products and heat tools. Instead, tame frizz by simply applying a frizz control cream like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Liss Control to damp hair before drying.
