Fast, Fantastic Style

 

 

Who has time to spend over 30 min on their hair? Not many people! We’re always running off to work and sometimes to meet friends afterwards, which makes hours-long glam impossible! Here are some quick tips for getting a 1-2-3 ¬†step style!

menscut8For men, the types of cuts pictured that are longer on top and extremely faded down to skin are very popular! But even if you have a medium length haircut, there are 2 go-to products you can use quickly for n easy yet refined look.

-If you want texture, hold and/or a matte finish: use the beeswax based Night Rider by Kevin Murphy. Its great for creating hold on medium to thicker hair types or densities.

-If you want light hold and a soft sheen finish: use the featherweight Undressed by Kevin Murphy. Its great for finer hair types and creates a shine finish that mimics slight wetness.

shortIf you have short to a longer pixie cut, you can play with different finishes and texture for variety.

MoroccanOil’s Texture Paste and Kevin Murphy‘s Bedroom.Hair are both great products for adding¬†definition, texture and medium hold. It can be very helpful for holding a swoop bang like in the picture to the right.

-For a sleeker look, try Molding Cream by MoroccanOil. The argan oil in it is conditioning and helps create some of the slicked back looks that are so popular on the runways.

If you have medium to long length hair, try creating a soft beachy texture.

-Try Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray (fine hair) or Hair Resort gel (medium to thick hair) to your dry hair from mid-shafts to ends. These products create hold with minimal effort.

-Blow dry into damp hair using a slow speed, medium heat dryer. Use a curling iron and wind the hair around the curling iron (2″-3″ diameter) in alternating directions, taking 2- 3 rotations. ¬†This creates movement and slight volume. Or, curl all pieces away from the face to create soft waves. ¬†Make sure not to curl the last 1-2″ of the ends for a tousled look, and do not use the clip on the curling iron.

Once the hair is curled and cooled completely (17-20 minutes ideally), use your hands to stretch the curl out a bit by grabbing big sections and smoothing your hands down the curls. This will soften them up and make them look more natural. To finish, use Session Spray by Kevin Murphy lightly, from ¬†12″ away from your hair to hold the curl and protect it from humidity.

Once you have done this a few times, you will become quick like QUICKSILVER! Going from day into night should be simple and almost effortless…
