As it gets cooler we layer on more clothes. Not only will this keep you warm, but it re-invents old clothes to give you a new look and create interest.
Let’s take this concept one step further and apply the same principle to your hair products; have you ever thought about layering them? This is a perfect way to combine your summer styling and treating rituals with your winter hair needs.
My favourite products to layer are treatments. For argument sake, Hydra Therapy could be more suited to winter weather due to its elevated level of moisture, perfect for hair that’s been in a heated room all day. Ultimate Treatment suits the summer lifestyle perfectly because of its quick repair time and Aromas Oil is your all-rounder - anytime is a good time.
For the treatment addicts out there, you’ve probably got all three of these products in your bathroom already; so try combining all three to get a super hydrated, ultra-softening, glossy result.
Step 1: Prep the hair by cleansing with your desired NAK Shampoo.
Step 2: Gently towel dry, squeezing out excess moisture.
Step 3: Apply a tablespoon of Hydra Therapy to the roots and mid-lengths of the hair.
Step 4: Apply a generous amount of Ultimate Treatment to the ends of the hair.
Step 5: Using a wide tooth comb, gently comb through.
Step 6: Using approx. 6 pumps of Aromas Oil (depending on hair length) apply globally from roots to ends and leave for 5 to 10 minutes.
Step 7: Rinse hair thoroughly in lukewarm water, towel dry and apply Ultimate Potion to finish.
Step 8: If blow-drying, be sure to use a cool temperature and a nozzle.
If there’s one thing we know in this industry, it’s that volume never goes out of style. This tried and tested technique has proven itself time and time again. Create simple, sassy and amazing fullness that will last for days by adding double the volume.
Step 1: Prep the hair by cleansing with our Body.n.Shine Shampoo and Conditioner.
Step 2: Scrunch in a generous portion of Body.n.Shine Volumising Foam and using a paddle brush, blow-dry product into the hair.
Step 3: Spray High Volume Texture Spray into the root area and paddle brush dry into the hair again (hair must be completely dry.)
Step 4: Style with curling tongs/wand taking 2 inch sections; leave curls to cool down completely. To finish, gently brush through with a paddle brush.
Beach waves are one of the most requested styles in salon but this natural, tousled look isn’t just for the summer months. Re-create this effortless look all year round with our winter waves technique.
Step 1: Spritz Surf Styler evenly throughout your roots, mid-lengths and ends. Using a paddle brush, blow-dry the product in, ensuring you remove all tangles and knots.
Step 2: Put your hair into a high ponytail; taking small sections of the ponytail, use your curling tong/wand and create curls in all different directions. Leave it to cool for a few minutes.
Step 3: Remove ponytail and shake curls loose, using your fingers to mess it up. Sprinkle Done.n.Dusted at the roots and complete the look with Fixation Finishing Spray.
Until next time…
