This Season's Best Polished Hair Looks: #shinyhair

It's already the holiday weekend, and just like that summer is over and fall is just around the corner.  The major fashion weeks are about to take place and that means back to business.  I am actually looking forward to this season’s more polished, pulled together beauty looks inspired by the 90's fashion spotted on the runways, in fashion editorials, and on celebrities. One of the first things I want to do is trim my hair and work on its overall condition, as this season’s best looks are sleek and smooth no matter the length or amount of curl or wave.  I’ve consulted with some of the top hair stylists on sets who are creating new styles for editorials and celebs, and asked them for the key products and tools they use to achieve these looks. Whatever your length or type of hair, the top trend is hair that moves but is controlled, shine and gloss are key, and condition is paramount.  

90’s Blunt Bob:  sleek precision cut bobs of any length are classic and dramatic at the same time.  Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, and Kim Kardashian have all been spotted with this edgy cut.  The key to this look is controlling frizz for a sleek, smooth finish.  Try K√©rastase Discipline Anti-Frizz Smoothing Spray for its weightless formula and shine.  

Gamine Crop:  short hair is having a major moment, flirting with androgyny in the most feminine of looks.  Nothing shows off the neck and cheekbones quite like an eyelash grazing cut.  Try Shu Uemura Blow Dry Beautifier Thermo BB Serum that smoothes and softens hair for controlled movement and defined texture, while protecting it from heated styling tools.

Great Lengths:  this season’s long hair looks have soft waves with a center part.  Think of your beach waves toned down a bit, with more definition.  Try Rossano Ferretti Parma Favoloso 18 Natural Defining Mousse, a light-hold styling and volumizing mousse that adds shine and is airy enough to allow hair to move.

Volume:  need a little glam?  Time to practice back-combing and using hot rollers to achieve sculpted, glossy,  glamorous waves. Movement is key and the goal is to avoid stiff or un-touchable hair.  Try Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Body Builder, a volumizing formula that creates a shiny, airy hold.  

Center-Part Straight:  Channel this 90’s favorite style for a versatile look that draws all the attention to your face, in a look that works 24-7: ponytail grip for the gym, ultra-chic for going out, sets off dramatic, smokey eyes just as well as a clean, natural look.  Try the Dryer Brush Crush Heated Straightening Brush which smoothes hair with a paddle-shaped brush that has the heat of a flat iron while being as easy to use as a regular hairbrush, leaving hair shiny and frizz-free.  

Glossy Straight:  thin straight hair needs a great cut that has face-framing soft layers.  Try Ouai Hair Oil for a high gloss, smooth finish.  The lightweight formula won’t weigh fine hair down.

It’s time for a fresh new look to go along with the fresh air creeping in.  I’m off to make an appointment with my stylist asap.

“Glass Hair” - Get the Hottest Celeb Hair Style

“Glass Hair”:  It’s all over our instagram feeds and one of the standout beauty trends of late summer, and is surprisingly flattering for most women. Celebs and their hair stylists are cutting, straightening and flat ironing to achieve hair that shines, literally, like glass.  The style is not simply a bob that has choppy ends softly framing the face and sitting right above the shoulders like seasons past.  The new bob is cut to be blunt with sharp edges that are straight across without an angle, falling between the jawline and collarbone and parted in the center.   

“Glass hair” works for all hair types and the level of effort needed depends on whether you have curly or straight hair since flat ironing in small sections creates the most smooth and shiny surface of the hair that reflects the light.  Straight-haired beauties are the lucky ones who can usually skip the flat iron and get a shiny look using a brush and blow dryer. 

Hair stylist to the stars Justine Marjan -  @justinemarjan - has created some of the best versions of glass hair on her star clients such as Khloe Kardashian, Olivia Culpo, Ashley Graham, and Brittany Xavier, proving that this style works for so many hair types and face shapes.  It’s an updated classic that channels the early 90’s while being completely 2018. 

Choosing the right products to get the ultimate shiny surface to your hair is key.  Apply Kerastase Discipline Anti-Frizz Smoothing Spray section by section to towel-dried hair before blow drying to add shine and fight frizz.  It protects the hair shafts from damage from heat appliances like driers and flat irons while creating a smooth finish.  Ouidad Shine Glaze Serum can also be applied before drying or to finish the look by applying it to the bottom half of the hair to avoid weighing the hair down while eliminating frizz.  It’s reflective properties add luminosity and shine.

For those who don’t want to commit to either the effort or the actual cut, hair extensions can give you the same look and add a bit of volume and weight for maximum hair swing-ability, which is so gram-worthy.   If you have ruled out a blunt bob for yourself or your hair is too fine or short, try a topper to add volume to fine hair, or crown clip in extensions for length.  Either way it skips a haircut and flat ironing, and is an easy way to play with the look without committing to scissors or upkeep.  Try Hidden Crown Hair Extensions to find the exact color and type of extension to suit you.
