Natural textures

The inspo: Rihanna and Tracee Ellis Ross

Texture is big this winter, and if you’ve thought about going natural, now is the time. Whether your hair is naturally curly, coily or wavy, it’s time to ditch the straightener and embrace your natural texture.

Reminiscent of the 80s, it’s all about celebrating curls, coils and afros.

Copper brunette

The inspo: Zendaya and Kendall Jenner

Also referred to as “luxury copper”, this is the hottest hair colour of the season, and finally, it’s a colour totally attainable by brunettes! Warm and full-bodied, the colour is rich and luxurious – just what the chilly season calls for.

Box braids

The inspo: Keke Palmer

Protective hairstyles are low maintenance and keep your natural hair away from being exposed to the sun, heat, and other damaging agents. This hairstyle’s timeless appeal and great adaptability are two more reasons to appreciate it.

Sleek ponytail

The inspo: Bella Hadid

A versatile style for straight hair, the sleek ponytail is easy to wear, any time of the day or night.

The key to perfecting it, is to use a fine-tooth comb to smooth out any bumps once your hair’s been pulled back.

Use a gel or mousse over the top for a smooth finish and to flatten any flyaways. It smoothes frizz, protects against humidity and holds hair in place without it drying or flaking.

The classic bob

The inspo: Dakota Johnson

A bob looks fantastic on almost every hair type and texture, which is one of its best features.

It’s a stylish yet subtle haircut for young people that never goes out of style. The secret to a modern bob is to work with your natural hair texture rather than over-styling it.

Accept the contour of your wavy or curly hair to keep it appearing a little “undone.” Allowing your straight hair to air dry will give it some movement and keep it from seeming too stiff.
