Get the look: Cool girl waves
Straight from NYFW
The international fashion week shows offer a huge spectrum of hair trends; some involve larger-than-life hairstyles that are done to prove a point, others are more relatable, especially for those of us back home in Oz. One hair look that grabbed us immediately was from Tome’s New York Fashion Week show, which saw models come down the runway with loosely tousled waves that were so quintessentially Australian; just imagine pairing it with a white summer dress, tan coloured sandals and a golden complexion. What also intrigued us was how the hairstyle was created - instead of bending hair back and forth with a straightener, sections of hair were wrapped around a large barrel tong with the tool held horizontally. It was genius and is super simple to achieve if you’re a pro at curling hair already.
Wrap one inch wide sections of hair around a large barrel curling iron (such as VS Sassoon 38mm Ceramic Curler). To form ripples rather than corkscrews, hold the iron horizontally to the head before winding strands around the barrel, making sure to keep the ends away from the heat.
