Vintage Chic

Carly says: "Embellishments in the hair are perfect for this time of year and if you're opting for this look, it's best to pair hair with the undone wave.

How TO GET THE VINTAGE LOOK? Simply blow dry for smoothness and volume,  tonging the mid lengths  leaving ends and roots straight. Using the hot irons, curl, pointing the tongs in lots of different directions to create depth. Leave to cool, then tip the head upside town. Blast with KMS California Hair Play Sea Salt Spray and then KMS California HairPlay Paste Up Spray. Post-spritzing, shake out the locks, combing through with fingers and you're good to go."

Carly Hobbs says: "Pearls, gems, feathers, metallics…oh my! However you want to adorn your tresses for that special night out, you need to ensure your hair is swept up suitably.

A messy side bun is ideal. Tong your hair following the Vintage Chic look how to, then pull all your hair to one side. Separate one piece of hair in the middle and tie into a loose ponytail.

Mist your hair with KMS California Curl Up Bounce Back Spray to give it some guts then take sections of strands twisting them into little waves and pinning them around the ponytail section.

Repeat until all hair, including the strands in the ponytail are casually swept up to form the messy bun. Set with KMS California Hair Stay Maximum Hold Spray."

Carly says: "Super straight locks are The Look for those that want sophistication, and to create this, preparation is key.

HOW TO GET THE STRAIGHT LOOK: Wash hair as normal, then carefully pat off excess water with a towel – never rub hair with a towel this makes it extra frizzy.

Now locks are damp, working a little KMS California Tamefrizz Smoothing Lotion through the mid-lengths to ends will be sensational before blow drying as normal. Once looking sleek, run straighteners over the hair. Finish with a fine layer of KMS California Hairstay Anti-Humity Seal."

Carly says: "Heading for a winter holiday in the sun? Then just go with the flow. Beach hair is fantastic so embrace the natural, salted air look.

HOW TO GET THE BEACH BABE LOOK: Wash your hair with KMS California Freeshape Shampoo. Then, braid your hair into at least six plaits evenly around your head. Ok, so it looks a little school girl to start off with but it’s worth it for the pay off. Your hair will dry in the night. When its time for getting ready, simply press straighteners over the braids. Do it in little squeezes from the top of the plait to the bottom.

Un-do the plait and shake out. Spraying with KMS California Hairplay Makeover Spray is going to be the ideal way to set it in place."

 

Night Do Darlings

Carly's says: "The messy ponytail is the coolest go-to for AW17 and ideal as you can build it up on top of the above look. Give your curls or waves a quick finger comb, then pull back all your hair at the crown and secure with a bobble. Casually pull at the front section to give it a tousled rather than slick finish, securing strands with Kirby grips if necessary. "
