For many seasons now — whether the style is curly or straight — the finish has fallen into one of two camps: sleek and polished or matte and textured. But for Spring '11 we're starting to see a blend of the two. A polished look that features flyaways. On purpose. It's rich girl come undone. We spoke to Barney Martin, Pantene’s Expert Stylist and Director of Barney Martin Hairdressing, in Surry Hills to talk getting the trend right . . .
Tip #1: The most effective way to get this look is to actually rub a balloon on your head. No joke. It creates that perfect static-like look that you see here.
TIP #2: Not feeling that adventurous or don’t have a balloon handy? Apply mousse liberally to your hair and then dry completely with a hairdryer. Either leave down or loosely pull back in a low pony at the nape of the neck and rub your hair lightly upwards against the hair shaft with the pads of your fingers. Then lightly spray with hairspray to hold the style.
