If you want to make a statement with your hair this season, why not consider a maximum impact, minimal effort style.

After all, a bold hairdo is all well and good but you don’t want to be spending hours taming your locks before you can leave the house.

We caught up with celebrity hairstylist Damian Carney to find out his tips for low-maintenance, statement locks.

“I always think that a fringe is the fastest way to make a change without committing to a full-on haircut,” says Damian.

“They can be soft or choppy, straight or beautifully curved – but no matter how you cut it, the emphasis is on shine,” he adds.

If you’re not keen on updating your look with some fringe benefits, you could also consider perfecting a textured, undone look.

“There’s something charming and youthful about hair that’s fresh, clean, and intentionally undone,” says Damian.

“Work a dollop of mousse into freshly-shampooed and conditioned hair, then blast it dry upside down, using hands to create texture and volume.

“If your hair already has wave, just let locks dry naturally,”

But if you’re looking for a less tousled look, it might be time to make an impact with super-shiny, poker straight glossy locks.

“There is nothing more luxe-looking than gorgeously sleek, blunt-cut hair –strategically tucked behind the ears to show off your face,” says Damian.

“This look requires a thorough, straight-as-an-arrow blow-dry – plus a once over with your straighteners.

“Five minutes with K-Pak’s Reconstructor – a powerful treatment that provides moisture, shine, and strength – will also do the trick.

“And the result will be serious shine and swing,” he adds.
