Hair I love: more than a little rough & ready


Ever since I cut my hair off into a long, 70’s style bob – complete with heavy bangs – I’ve been having a lot more fun playing with different looks on a more than daily basis. I’ve discovered that sleek and shiny isn't the only way to play things straight when it comes to my hair, and that a slightly dishevelled, carefully ‘undone’ finish is super cool and super low maintenance. This look works on quite a few lengths too, but always start by spritzing roots with a volumizer (try the Sebastian Volupt range for volume and care), then blow-dry using a paddle brush or just by pulling hair straight with your fingers if it’s already half way there. For a real touch of rock n’ roll, don't dry it 100 per cent, as a little moisture left in the hair to air-dry will coax some movement and natural curl. Use your fingers to tousle your roots and then finish with a shine spray if you’re so inclined. Think effortlessly cool French it girls like Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Lou Doillon and add a careless slick of kohl and a touch of pouty self-assurance and you’re good to go.
