Farewell fussy festive styles. The New Year is upon us and in the world of hair that means it’s time to get back to basics.
Post-party hair often needs tender loving care and the best way to rehabilitate your tired tresses is to keep your style simple.
We caught up with celebrity hair stylist Damien Carney to discover his tips for a sleek and simple hair do.
“After several seasons of elaborate waves and curls, straight, smooth hair feels modern,” says Damien.
“Once the hair is smoothed, it can be gathered into a ponytail, braided, or pulled back tightly on each side.
“Keep the shape low and tight to the head,” he adds.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Apply a few drops of Joico Smooth Cure Leave-In Rescue Treatment to shampooed and conditioned hair.
2. Beginning at the nape of the neck, blow dry horizontal sections, working up to the crown, then around to the sides and up to the front. Point the dryer down along the hair shaft.
3. When blow drying, use a round brush if hair is thick or coarse; a paddle or Denman brush if hair is fine or straight. If necessary, use a flat iron to touch up specific areas.
4. Sweep all hair across the head from a low side parting and secure in a low pony at the nape. Or, isolate a horseshoe section at the crown, brush the sides tight to the head and allow the top section to fall over the sides.
