Summer trends and the red carpet

by KATKA FERRARO @ Clay Hair Salon

1. Inspiration behind the style and the look:
My inspiration for this look was summer trends and the red carpet. Beach waves look great in the summer every year and are perfect for clients that want a subtle change from long straight hair.

2. Does it have dress down/dress up options?
Yes. You can texturise the hair to create thicker and more voluminous curls for a more dressed up look, or simply brush through the hair a little and add a little sea salt spray to give dressed down beach waves.

3. Which hair types does it work for? ie fine/thick, etc
The cut can work for all types of hair texture; it is great for giving volume to finer hair. I would recommend this look for normal to thick hair. It can look great on both long and short hair; with short hair you can create a choppy layered look which looks great in the summer months and on longer hair it brush it through to create beach waves.

4. High or low maintenance?
Low it is a very easy cut and the style can be created through heat styling and products that give texture.

5. What face shapes best suit this style?
This style can suit all face shapes. With long hair it will elongate the face so it is ideal for a round face and with short hair it looks great on a heart shaped face.

6. Any important blow dry/styling tips?
Always use a thickening spray before blow drying and dry the hair from the roots to ends as this will create the volume needed for the style. This is the best way to get maximum volume and trains the hair to flow outwards rather than downwards, which would leave it straight and flat.

7. Best products for the style and colour?
Milk_Shake Volume Solution is perfect for adding volume. The style relies on volume heavily so a good volumising product is key. In order to keep the blonde from fading, use Milk_Shake Colour Maintainer or Oribe Shampoo for beautiful Colour. Spritz this style with hairspray to hold the look.

How to style:

1. Before blow drying, run a few drops of Milk_Shake Glistening Serum through the hair to keep the curls smooth. Once dry, separate the hair into small sections and begin to curl with tongs

2. Brush through each section gently to loosen out the curls

3. Finish the look by spraying Oribe Superfine Strong Hair Spray all over
