With cooler temperatures settling upon us in Sydney, you’re better off not trying to control the flyaways and curls with pin straight hair, but embracing hair texture in all of its glory! Even the straightest hair has body and the cooler months are the best time to flaunt it.

A woman is at her most beautiful when she embraces what Mother Nature gifted her! Embrace tousled waves and extreme curls alike whilst the weather has its own plan for your hair. And a haircut with one of our talented Sydney hairdressers can finally show you how beautiful your hair can really be.

Relaxed and easy to do upstyles like messy top knots and textured buns add a touch of style and texture to Autumn hair that’s easy to achieve.

Let’s take a look at some great winter styles and how to keep your hair nourished and protected so it looks lush in its natural texture through the colder, drying weather…

Tousled Waves

We are seeing some beautiful relaxed curls on both bb’s (blunt bobs), lobs (long-bobs) and flicky pixie cuts alike. The soft texture on the former two is created generally by blowdrying the hair and following with curls created by curling tongs or flat irons, that are then brushed through and separated to create a more natural texture.

Embracing texture through your waves or curls means you don’t have to be trying to keep every hair in place and frizz free, which is perfect for this windy rainy season. A quick running of your fingers through your hair once out of the weather will tame any flyaways and help curls maintain their shape as long as you’ve prepped your hair with the right styling aids.

Prep and Frizz Control

Great professional hair care products to tame frizz and create a wave or curl that will stay put are:

1. Prepping on towel dried hair with a leave in hair conditioner (a spray or a cream, whichever you prefer – a cream is more likely to provide extra mositure for your hair),

2. Drying off the hair with a versatile styling product like KMS Free Shape Styling Creme – which keeps your style for longer and is heat activated – so once you’ve curled your hair – the curl will have great longevity.

3. Finishing with a serum, such as KMS Silksheen Polishing Serum, which will ensure a glossy healthy finish that will keep your hair looking lush!

1, 2 or 3 products is all you need. If you are a more is less kinda-gal, then opt for the leave in conditioner…

Easy Upstyles

If your hair isn’t curly and you don’t want to fuss with heat styling, a textured upstyle is a great option to give you a lift from wearing your hair out and change-up your look!

1. After washing and towel-drying your hair, add a touch of leave in conditioner to the lengths of your hair and blowdry upside-down to add volume and dry-off quickly.

2. With your head still facing downwards, tie into a pony and try either a loose plait or twist and pin hair into a bun close to the ponytail tie with a couple of bobby pins that match the same shade as your hair colour.

3. Once secure, begin to loosen and pull to create a more rounded shape, with some strands looser than others so that the hair texture is visible; there is perfection in the imperfection. Take a look at these relaxed updo’s…
