This red carpet season, I loved seeing the variations on wearing hair up. I think there are ways to bring the look home, and try it for a more casual look. Braids are a great way to dress hair up a little. Having texture in hair is important, so after washing, I love spraying Charlotte Ronson’s A Perfect Mess Beach Spray in while the hair is damp. After it dries you can try a side braid, fishtail, or pin one off to the side.
I have always loved a chic ponytail, be it sleek or textured. I recently discovered Cyndi Bands to tie hair up and love them! The don’t leave dents on your hair, so your hair looks great when you take it down. Cyndi Bands also don’t put strain on your hair like other hair ties do, which can cause breakage.
I tell my clients to have fun and don’t think about it too much. Texture is key in keeping the style modern, so don’t worry about it being messy!
