VALENTINE’S Day may have come and gone but there is no excuse not to have a sexy look the other 364 days of the year.
FeMail has teamed up with the experts at Vidal Sassoon to bring you romantic hair all-year round.
“When you’re working with sexy clothes and high heels you want your hair to complement your perfect outfit for that all important night out,” says Bruce Masefield, UK creative director at Sassoon
“That’s why Sassoon Salon has put together some looks to help achieve romantic hair which will not be forgotten. Romantic hair is all about ‘effortless movement, and healthy shine’.”
TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY ROMANTIC
“A deep side part that starts past the crown of the head and sweeps across the forehead is an easy way to be on trend,” says Bruce.
Apply Wella Professional Ocean Spritz to damp hair and rough-dry. Using the tail of a fine comb, push over the front section of your hair, creating a deep side sweep. Pin the rest of your hair into a bun high on your crown and use your fingers to tease out strands and loosen your up-do. Finally, spray a light mist of hairspray such as Sassoon Professional Motion Hold to secure your look. “Fingers are your best tools to rub and tease the hair, the undoneness is what makes it sexy,” says Bruce.
“A ponytail pulled low and neat at the nape of the neck, exudes chic, ladylike elegance,” says Bruce.
Spray a fine mist of Sassoon Professional Spray Shine onto the undersides of your hair, which will reflect the light as you turn your head from side to side, making your hair look expensive and immaculate. For a modern, luxe option, take a small section of hair out of the ponytail, wrap it around the band and secure with a pin.
SWEET & CHIC
“A chignon is an obvious chic style but it is the ‘little touches’ which make it modern and sexy,” says Bruce.
Play with the shape and leave the hair soft and teased in places for some simple elegance. Don’t over think things when creating the look, the hair does not need to look perfect, yet should have the feeling of delicate femininity.
“Wisps of hair that escape around the hair lines only add to the simplicity and flirtatious feeling of the look,” he says. “Use a minimal amount of product – it’s more sensual. Sassoon Professional Motion Hold is perfect to hold your loose twist in place all evening.”
