Get Model-Off-Duty Hair

Loose, un-done hair with a carefree vibe is defiantly the trend for SS15 and seen at every catwalk from Chanel to Chloe. This is the hair uniform of the fash pack, with everyone from models and IT girls to editors and also low-key tresses offset casual summer outfits and works amazingly well during the hotter months as it requires very little styling and time to achieve.

The Cut and Colour
Ask your hairdresser for a long layered cut that also frames your face. For the colour, go for naturally-blended balayage around your face and if you want to add a little brightness, go for an ombre as this suits layered hair.

Pat dry freshly washed hair with a towel before rough drying with a hairdryer to give a natural lived-in look. Add waves using a large barrel tong/wand (I use the Tresemme Volume Hair Tong) but leave around the last 2 inches so they look straighter. Remember to curl your hair in both directions to give it an un done effect. If your hair looks to 'done' blast with the hairdryer to separate the curls.

Get model off duty hair
Must have product
Shiny hair jus wont cut it for this look so add a little salt spray (I use L'Oreal Paris Studio Line Matt & Messy Salt Spray) for a matte effect and give the model-off-duty vibe.

Fight the frizz
Frizz is a big no-no so make sure your hair is well conditioned before you start. If there is still frizz after you have styled, spray a little hairspray (I use Fudge Urban Iced Raspberry & Vanilla Hairspray) into the palm of your hand and run it over your hair to calm frizz and keep flyaways at bay.
