For the perfect, laid-back and low-key spring style, we’re looking to the recent Tommy Hilfiger AW18 show with Gigi Hadid for inspo. Collaborating with the designer on the collection, Gigi was the epitome of cool-girl chic as she hit the runway to open and close the show. Matching the Formula One-theme of the show, ghd Fashion Week ambassador Eugene Souleiman created a super speedy style for the star-studded model line-up.
“People don’t have the time anymore. Hair needs to translate to the modern woman,” says Eugene. Weaving tiny plaits into the hair, Eugene added a simple detail that can fast-track any look to festival season spring style. He continues, “[the look has] been done with haste but still appears styled but natural. It’s a beautiful look with lots of texture created using the new ghd gold® professional styler. It encompasses the Tommy lifestyle, too – young, fun and free but with a bit of an edge.”
It’s so simple, your clients will love it. Find out how to get the look:
- Comb the hair into a center parting – a flattering look for everyone.
- Then, roll the hair into two soft buns (one each side of the head) and diffuse for a couple of minutes using ghd air® hairdryer. Leave hair to cool for a couple of seconds before unravelling.
- To enhance movement, use ghd gold® professional styler to bend random sections of the hair. Eugene explains: “What we’re doing is something quite different, to get a looser, more natural feeling to the hair we’re bending hair around the styler and as we’re taking the hair away we’re stretching it so that it’s more of an “S” curl – less opulent, more understated. It’s more of a modern style, you’re still adding a bit of structure to the hair but it’s more relaxed.”
- To finish the look, add micro braids to random sections of the hair and gently clamp along the end of the braid with the ghd gold® professional styler to secure the braid without using an elastic and to give a lightly-crimped, dual texture.
