When you are up for experimenting with your wardrobe this month, why should your hair be left behind? Mark Hampton – Global hair ambassador for TONI&GUY HairMeetWardrobe, gives us a few tips on styling your look to perfection and adding a bit of bling for that showstopping look!
The Twisted Updo
Its twists and curls may look pro-level complicated, but this intricate updo is surprisingly simple to create. This style puts a formal spin on the basic bun without compromising its simple elegance. Hair is swept completely away from the face, so it’s perfect for an outdoor occasion.
Mark Hampton’s Hair Tip: Secure every one of the small hair elements with tiny bobby pins and then drape the next element over the bobby pin. This is a nifty way of hiding the pins. Finish this off with a spray of a casual sea salt texturising spray.
Accessorise: Natural flowers like spray roses, tulips, daisies, carnations and alstroemerias.
The Faux Bob
First spotted on the catwalks, faux bobs are in vogue everywhere. Women with long hair, especially, love this look, as it allows them to create the illusion of cutting their hair without actually going for the chop. The faux bob works with long hair that is tied at the base of the neck. The hair is tied very discreetly and folded up onto itself to create the classic bob-shape.
Mark Hampton’s Hair Tip: If your hair is long enough, you can also create a faux bob by first gathering your hair in a ponytail and then sliding the scrunchy down to the hair ends. Apply a dab of Glamour serum drops by TONI&GUY HairMeetWardrobe to help you fold the hair inward and secure the ponytail end with hidden bobby pins.
Accessorise: The 1920s-inspired Wavelength Rhinestone Headband.
The Sleek Chignon – Bows
This fresh, easy style is as modern as it is timeless: low-swept curls recall a classic chignon, while an asymmetrical silhouette lends a flirty vibe. “It’s young and coquettish and the sleek and well- organised looking chignon is the ideal hairstyle for festive events of any kind.”
Mark Hampton’s Hair Tip: This chignon is low at the neckline and is beautiful if your hair is coloured with a rich red lustre. A moisturising shine spray will add that glitz to add even more glamour and interest to the look.
Accessorise: The silver barrette.
