How would you describe your relationship with your hair? The GLAMOUR Hair team responds.

Editor Michelle Brownlee Smith Tumultuous. I keep trying to change it (the texture, the colour, the style) and it keeps fighting back (with frizz, greys and split ends)! Art Director Ziyaad Bassier Content. After battling my receding hairline for years, I’ve finally accepted going bald, and I’m loving it. Managing Editor Staci Lazarus Undemanding. I’m lucky that my hair is pretty low-maintenance and I just let it do its own thing. Senior Copy Editor Karen Tennent Love! I’m lucky to have gorgeous, natural curls, and I embrace and look after them every single day. 

Designer Zulpha Meyers Appreciation. I have naturally curly hair, but I often wear it straight, so I appreciate that it’s so versatile and allows me to change my look. Beauty Assistant Lesley Mathys Daring. I believe in trying everything at least once. Over the years, I’ve had my hair super long and very short, in braids, weaves and more. It’s all about having fun! Syndication and Editorial Executive Micarla Lucas-Kadir Complicated. We have a lovehate relationship: some days my hair is great and does exactly what I want, other days it’s the enemy and either frizzes up or lies flat on one side and is poofy on the other. The struggle is real. Junior Copy Editor Tumi Moletsane Temperamental. My hair is always giving me mixed messages. It can go from looking like it could trend on Tumblr to looking like it

ADVERTISING Advertising Sales Directors Kerry Costa

Junior Designer Sam O’Dowd Safe. I don’t do much with my hair at all. I experimented a lot in high school, but now I keep it simple – long and straight.

Content Producer and Social Media Executive Danica van der Veen Unstable! One minute we’re madly in love (usually right after a visit to the salon), and the next minute, it cheats on me with frizz (usually right before an important event).

Promotions Assistant Lauren Williams Complicated. I have really thick, curly hair, so I have to use the correct hair products to eliminate frizz and to add smoothness and shine. And most days, I just straighten it.

Beauty Work Experience Luzanne Möller Spontaneous. I change my hair when it’s least expected. Now, after experimenting with colour, I’m enjoying a blue-black hue. But I’m always open to a trendy new ’do.

Tress friends

was 12 years old when I met my best friend Nadette. She was the pretty girl in the brown bubble skirt and matching crop top, with the glossiest, thickest and longest hair I’d ever seen. I was a little star-struck. Over the years, as our friendship grew, we had many things in common: a well of useless information about ’90s supermodels and a desire to work on a magazine (she as the photographer and me, the writer). We also shared the same chocolate brown hair. But my wispy, fine and frizzy lengths never quite compared to her mane, which was never shorter than her bra strap, sometimes layered, sometimes with a fringe, but always lush and thick. Nadette jokes that she was born with long hair, and I almost believe her. Not all women are blessed with that lushness, and experiencing sudden hair loss can be confidence-busting. That’s why we spoke to a trichologist about strategies to pamper your scalp to get your healthiest head of hair in ‘Scalp truths’. And if chemical treatments and excessive heat-styling have caused breakage, we’ve got help in ‘11 Rules for healthy hair’. When it comes to our friendship, I can chart our history through new hair technologies: Nadette was my biggest cheerleader the first time I had a bionic straightening treatment, waiting

to see if my hair would still come out straight after a shower (it did). She was the first person I knew to request ombré colour long before it was fashionable, and she told me about keratin treatments before they hit our shores. Sometimes, the relationship with our locks is not as clear cut as our friendships. SA stars describe theirs in one word in ‘Coiffure confidential’. How would you define yours? Hopefully, after you’ve worked through this issue and found inspiration to try a new colour, a great cut or a desire to embrace your own texture, only one word will spring to mind: love!

f there ever was a time to switch up your hairstyle, it’s summer. And what better way to do that than with the latest addition to the Frika family? Low-maintenance, versatile and able to work on its own without the use of any heat-styling tools, the Mpume Galaxy weave is a short and trendy look that exudes style and elegance. To ensure that you get the most out of your weave, use a moisturiser to keep your scalp healthy and apply silicone-based serums to keep the rich blend of colours glossier for longer.

DO embrace chrome It’s all about the shimmer as fashion, accessories and hair go metallic. Do you dare try the silver strands seen on runways? 5

DO ask for snowlights Get a frostier colour with this cool new highlighting trick.



DO attempt the wob

First it was the bob, then it was the lob. Now A-listers are going crazy for the wob (wavy bob). Here’s how to get the look in four steps. Run a R2 coin-sized dollop of lightweight waveenhancing cream through damp hair, flip your head over and rough-dry your roots. Flip your head back up and blowdry the rest of your hair until it’s almost dry, twisting random 5cm pieces

1 DO meet your new brush BFF Tangle Teezer wowed us with their detangling brush. And now their latest version, the Tangle Teezer Thick & Curly (R240), is perfect for women who love their naturally curly hair, but loathe brushing it. With a bigger body, you’ll have a much better grip, and the different bristle lengths help tackle any knots.




This is the latest hair colour technique: your stylist adds tiny highlights two shades brighter than your usual highlighter, just to your crown. This gives the appearance of light being cast of your head.


from your hairline around your fingers to “encourage piecey waves,” recommends hairstylist Angela Soto. Let your hair air-dry the rest of the way, then redefine the waves around your crown and hairline with a 3cm curling iron, holding


it vertically (alternate the direction so that the waves aren’t perfect). Pull on the curls to loosen them while hot. Blast your roots with a dry texturising spray, then mist all over with an oilinfused spray, concentrating on your midlengths to ends.


DO smooth your hair with keratin Your hair is made up of a tough protein called keratin, and boosting your locks’ keratin levels with salon treatments can result in super-sleek and shiny lengths. Micro Keratin, a unique in-salon treatment that uses nanotechnology to help the keratin penetrate deep into your strands, replenishes any protein that may have broken down during chemical

processes and heat-styling, and from harsh weather conditions. A 90-minute session costs from R1 200, and your hair will stay frizzfree for up to six months. Plus, the athome aftercare products help extend the treatment’s efects and minimise time spent heat-styling, giving you a healthy and glossy finish. Find your nearest salon at

DO amp up your side part Side partings flatter everyone! Now modernise yours with a pretty and edgy braid or a twist like the celebrities below.

DO spray violet dry shampoo


Step 1 Start in the shower


Texture is such a big trend, and it appears effortless. Backstage hair guru Guido Palau, global creative director for Redken who has worked on Prada, Versace and Dior shows, says, “A lot of women have great natural texture and they don’t even realise it.” Try Guido’s three-step guide for rocking yours.


DO sport undone texture


Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo for Light Tones (R397) is the latest hair saviour for blondes. With purple undertones, it helps balance out brassiness and banish yellow tinges. Spray on your roots from 20cm away to keep your style a day longer, or spray on your ends to give your lengths some texture.

If your hair is thick, wavy, kinky or curly, begin with a rich conditioning mask to smooth it out. But if your hair is fine and limp and needs more body, opt for a texture-boosting shampoo instead.

Step 2 Apply a leave-in “Towel-dry your hair a little more than usual,” says Guido, then comb through a leave-in conditioner, like Redken Curvaceous Conditioner For All Curl Types (R369). It can be washed out or kept in to tame flyaways and define your texture.



Step 3 Enhance it If your hair is naturally straight, add movement with braids or a strategic tuck: put almost-dry hair in two or three loose braids overnight for beachy bends, or tuck loose, damp hair behind your ear while you get ready for work. “When you untuck it, there’s a wave behind your ear that’s really softening to the face,” Guido explains.

of the rod inwards. Then let your hair air-dry or keep the rods in overnight. The tightness of the curl will depend on the size of your rod: the thinner the rod the tighter the curl. Gently unwind the rods and pull the curls apart to create volume. Apply a shine spray once you’re done.

Flip it and reverse it

Embrace the drama

Get on up

This reverse chignon shows just how versatile braids are. Cornrow your hair from the nape of your neck to the middle of your head for some edge, and twist the loose braids up high for an elegant feel.

Take your cue from Blake Lively to amplify your updo. First, pull back your hair into a sleek ponytail, then curl the lengths before teasing and pinning them under to create statement-making volume in the back.

Apply a shine serum after flatironing your hair. Create a side part, then pull your hair into a high ponytail. Twist and fold the lengths so that the bun is almost as wide as your crown. Let your fringe frame your face.


DO meet cover girl Barbara Palvin This Hungarian beauty graced her first magazine cover at just 13. Now a runway regular, the L’Oréal Paris ambassadress shares her lustworthy tress and beauty tips. GLAMOUR Hair What’s your most important beauty secret? BARBARA To look after yourself on both the inside and out. I eat healthily and make sure to get enough rest. I also try to keep my mind calm… even on the busiest days! What gives you confidence? I love music, so when I need a confidence boost, I’ll think of a favourite song and sing the words. Singing makes me feel powerful! My favourite musicians are Kings of Leon, Maroon 5, Rihanna and Adele. What do you pack when you travel? My notebook, cell phone, clothes, toiletries – just like any woman! And I always have something belonging to my boyfriend or that he gave me. And a book by sci-fi author Leslie L Lawrence – he’s one of my favourites. What are your handbag must-haves? A bottle of water to stay hydrated and my cell phone to keep in touch with my friends and family. How do you keep your hair so glossy? I’m addicted to L’Oréal Paris Elvive Nutri-Gloss Shine Shampoo and Conditioner (R49.95 each)! It makes my hair so shiny and exceptionally soft. AGNÈS B

DO don a hat Hats are practical, protecting your scalp and colour from the sun as well as hiding frizz – and they make a bold statement. But what to do with your hair when wearing one? Try this.


Tucked away

Forget about hat hair with a sleek style. Start by creating a deep side parting. Gather the lengths at the nape of your neck, twist and pin into a low chignon with U-shaped pins. It’s a great look to take you from pool to party.


Side braid

Sweep all your hair to one side. If pieces fall forward, leave them for a casual result. Divide hair into three sections and plait a classic three-strand braid. Pull on it to loosen once you’re done for an effortless, beachy effect.


Loose waves

Whether you’re running errands or going on a date, this look is flattering for all face shapes and occasions. To give your hair hold, apply mousse then curl with a curling iron in random-sized sections for a sexy and undone result. 9

Tie at the nape with a bungee elastic, like Evo Mister Fantastic Hair Bungees (R150 for set of six).

Try a DIY hair mask 1

Amp up your shine factor

Product build-up is one of the biggest contributing factors to dull hair. The easiest way to remove it? Aspirin! Crush an Aspirin tablet, add the powder to a small amount of your usual shampoo, apply to your hair and build up a lather. The salicylic acid in Aspirin will clarify your strands – great if you’ve been using a lot of styling products or dry shampoo. Do this once every two weeks for super clean and shiny locks.



Say sayonara to split ends

The best remedy for split ends is still a trim, but you can achieve smoothness until your next salon visit with an egg mix. Eggs contain lots of protein, which helps rebuild and strengthen damaged hair. Mix one egg yolk with two tablespoons of honey. Add three tablespoons of olive oil, mix well and apply generously to damp hair. Leave for 30 minutes, then rinse out thoroughly. Hello, strong and smooth strands!


Revive with a deep condition

Stock up on beer. Yes, beer. A great deep conditioner, the hops in beer are rich in proteins that help revive volume and create shine. After you shampoo, pour flat beer into a spray bottle and spritz onto damp hair from midshaft to ends. Allow to sit for two to three minutes, and don’t rinse it out. Have no fear – the brewery scent will disappear once your hair dries, and the result will be beautiful volume and shine.


Get rid of dryness

A good old-fashioned mayonnaise mask is one of the best ways to treat dry hair thanks to the inclusion of oil and eggs, which will nourish and hydrate your tresses. Take a cup of mayonnaise (add a few drops of essential oils or vanilla essence to get rid of the smell) and apply it to dry hair. Cover with a plastic shower cap or a warm towel, and let it penetrate. Leave on for 30 minutes. Shampoo as usual. FOR OUR FIVE MUST-HAVE RETAIL MASKS, CHECK OUT GLAMOUR.CO.ZA.

Ingredients your hair needs now Bonus: they’re locally sourced and make your hair look lovely, too.


hen there are so many shampoos, conditioners, masks and styling products to choose from, the task of washing your hair can feel overwhelming. Luckily, local ingredients are standing out from the crowd and promise glossy, strong and revitalised locks. Take your strands to the next level with these ingredients.





What it is Oval in shape, the ximenia fruit contains a single seed that’s enriched with unsaturated fatty acids and oils. Why it’s great “The unsaturated fatty acids in ximenia help nourish, moisturise, soften and revitalise hair,” explains Meagan. TRY [2] Biosense The Ultimate 12 In 1 Leave-in Treatment (R160).

What it is Thought to live up to 3 000 years, the baobab tree can create its own ecosystem, and the San people thought of it as a magic tree because it provided shelter, food and water. Its superfruit contains anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and soothing properties. Why it’s great “Baobab helps to smooth, moisturise and strengthen hair, meaning less breakage,” says Meagan. “It reinvigorates damaged hair and calms frizzy locks.” TRY [3] Biosense Hydrate Shampoo (R150).

Get back to basics





For best results, you need to know how much and how often to use your products.

Shampoo and conditioner


Heat protector

Preserve those tresses

Enhance your shine

Start well

“Apply a hair mask weekly. Use a finger-sized scoop on short hair, two on medium and three on long,” says Meagan. “Rinse after the allocated time – your hair won’t absorb more product after.”

“If you heat-style your hair, divide it into sections while its damp. Starting at the nape, spray two to three pumps on each section to make sure all your strands are covered,” she says.

“Before styling, use one to two pumps of oil on damp hair, or one pump onto dry hair for shine and manageability. Always apply from the midlengths to the ends first,” recommends Meagan.

“Professional hair products are highly concentrated, so only use a R5 coin-sized amount for each. Condition after you shampoo to help close cuticles,” says Meagan. 14

What it is This egg-shaped fruit from the manketti tree has a thin layer of edible flesh around a hard, pitted shell. Inside the shell is a nutrient-rich nut that releases oil when pressed, similar to an almond. Why it’s great “Mongongo is rich in omega-6 oil, which aids hydration and cell renewal,” explains Meagan Smith, product manager for Biosense, a professional and locally produced haircare range. “Thanks to its high amounts of vitamin E, mongongo has excellent antioxidant properties, and the alpha-eleostearic acid present acts as a protective barrier when hair is exposed to UV rays. This ingredient is especially great for colourtreated hair.” TRY [1] Biosense Finish Creamy Dreamy Pomade (R150).

hair flash volume tricks


Apply a 20 cent-sized amount of volumising blowdry cream, like TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Hair Maximiser (R85.99), to add some volume. Focus on your roots to mid-shaft.


Release the curls and gently brush them out from top to bottom using a boar bristle brush. Work them into waves as you brush, keeping the side smooth with volume at the parting.


Apply mousse and blowdry with a round brush. Create a deep side parting. Using a curling iron, start curling 2.5cm-wide pieces at a time. Pin in place. 


For added hold, mist each tonged section with hairspray before you pin. Then let each curl set in place while you curl the same sized sections all over your head. Make sure to curl in the same direction. Allow your hair to cool for 10 minutes.


To sculpt the waves into place, use the end of a tail comb. At the curve of the wave, add a duckbill clip to keep the shape. Now get dressed.

Katie Cassidy’s retro side wave The ultimate bombshell look, a side wave works well on long, layered locks, wigs and weaves made of 100% human hair. For this style, keep your lengths elegantly smooth, but not lank or stiff – fullness is key. You’ll need Blowdry cream, mousse, curling tong, clamps, a boar bristle brush, a tail comb, duckbill clip and hairspray. Time 40-60 minutes NOW WATCH THE HOW-TO VIDEOS OF THESE LOOKS AT GLAMOUR.CO.ZA.


Avoid steamy bathrooms which can cause your waves to fall flat. Finally, remove the clips that were holding your waves in place. Liberally spritz your hair with a strong-hold hairspray from 20cm away to make your style last all night. 17

y Italian genes might have meant that I was born with dark brown locks, but I love changing my hair colour; it allows me to convey something about myself without saying a word. I first tried dyeing my hair in high school. It was beyond my control that I was constantly labelled “different”, but when I went jet black, I took “different” into my own hands and owned the label along with the new look. And from then on, hair colour

Lusher lengths As you age, your hair loses bounce and shine. But for many women, those changes can be more severe: a widening path, thinning ponytail and excessive hair loss. Get a growth plan If you can pinpoint the reason for your hair loss with your doctor, you can take steps to do something about it for good.

Genetics is the most common cause of female hair loss

Before you go down a google hole of home remedies, know that “the only topical treatment with evidence-based efficacy is minoxidil,” explains Dr Neil Sadick, a dermatologist who specialises in hair loss. Be patient: it takes at least three months of daily use to yield results, so stick with it.


Stress and crash diets are the next most frequent culprits

“Three months after a major trauma, like surgery, you may have temporary hair loss,” says Dr Sadick. Biotin or zinc supplements can strengthen the hairs you have (so they look fuller) until the rest of your hair grows back in about six to 12 months.


Inflammation is a factor


Hormonal changes – from menopause or birth control pills – can mess with your hair

Scalp inflammation is present in a majority of women with hair loss,” explains Dr Sadick, who suggests coupling a topical growth treatment with a prescription steroid solution. Weekly sessions of lowenergy laser therapy can also help.

Spironolactone, a prescription drug that controls androgens, or a new birth control can put hormones into check to normalise.

How to bulk up fast It takes time, about three months, for growth treatments to work. While you’re waiting, bring in reinforcements: volumising blowdry creams and lightweight mousses. Apply your blowdry cream to damp hair, working well from the roots to the ends. Comb it through with a wide-tooth comb. Flip your head over and blast dry, using a big round brush to add volume. Work through the mousse and set your hair in Velcro rollers to smooth frizz and add fullness. Finally, spritz with hairspray.

Stop colour fade now!

Your hair colour is amazing right after you leave the salon, then it dulls. To keep it looking richer for longer, try this! Wash gently

Brighten up Highlighted hair can turn brassy because of UV exposure, overwashing or minerals in your shower water, reveals Kyle. Apply a leave-in spritz that nourishes hair to make it more manageable, like [2] Schwarzkopf BlondMe All Blondes Spray Conditioner (R262). If you find that colour too warm, use a violet-toned shampoo “to neutralise yellow tones and keep those lighter streaks sparkly,” recommends Kyle. Developed for blondes, [3] Gary Rom Blonde Brilliance Shampoo (R335) restores vibrancy without stripping your hair of moisture. 20

Treat weekly Regularly nourish your hair with a mask. “A deep-conditioning treatment will seal your cuticle so it retains colour longer,” says Kyle. [4] Redken Color Extend Magnetics Deep Attraction Mask (R455) helps keep your colour vibrant. Or use Kyle’s DIY trick: supercharge your conditioner with a few drops of coconut oil so it’s even more hydrating. And always layer on protection before heat-styling. [5] ghd Heat Protect Spray (R210) is lightweight, making strands gleam. The result: colour that’s good as new.

Heads up: every time you shampoo, some of that gorgeous colour goes down the drain. “Anything that removes dirt and oil is also going to remove colour molecules,” explains hairstylist Kyle White. He suggests doing just a water rinse post-gym to give your strands a break. When you do wash, use a colour-depositing formula a few days a week. TRY [1] L’Oréal Paris Pure Colour Dazzling Colour and Volume Shampoo (R139.95). Scared it’ll be too much? “Dilute the colour shampoo with your regular shampoo or conditioner,” says Kyle.

Find your ideal parting Bring out your best features with the right style for your face shape.


HEART-SHAPED The defining feature of this face shape is a pointy chin, and wide forehead à la Kourtney Kardashian. To flatter your shape and make it look less sharp, go for a deep middle parting. “This lets hair brush softly against your face to give this illusion, and softens your cheekbones as well,” Mika says.

If your face is




Like Tyra Banks, the length of your face from your hairline to your chin is longer than its width from ear to ear. Try face-framing layers: “They work well because they help shorten a longer face shape,” says celeb hairstylist Mika Fowler.

If your face is

If your face is



For a perfect example of someone whose cheekbones are the widest part of her face, look to Victoria Beckham. Stay away from short fringes and stick to a flattering side parting as this “really complements strong cheekbones and bone structures,” explains Mika.

Jennifer Hudson’s forehead, cheekbones and jawline are equal widths. If that describes you, a middle or deep side parting will be the most flattering. “Both partings give the illusion of length, and create symmetry around the face,” says Mika.





If, like Kate Bosworth, your temples and your jawline are an even width, go for a side parting and long layers that help softens the angles. But be careful: “You don’t want to make the parting too deep, as this will accentuate the angles of a square face, which can be harsh,” advises Mika.

CAPE TOWN Spending peak season at the coast is great for the buzz and the beach, but wind and heat are hair foes. Keep your style polished by tightly pulling back your locks. Calm flyaways with a little pomade and plait. Finally mist with a light hairspray.

This one’s easy – enjoy a glass of wine, grab some tasselled string and get creative. You may not want something this fancy, but weaving a black ribbon through a simple braid is a fresh take on retro. Use a matte or velvet ribbon at least twice the length of your hair.

Island holidays are great, but the downside is serious humidity. Contain the chaos with a printed headwrap – fold a scarf into a 7cm strip and knot casually at the crown (your hair should be down, but not tucked behind your ears). To keep your hair off your neck, loop a low ponytail (place the elastic 5cm from the ends of your hair) up to your crown, and pin it beneath the scarf.

In a city where you can truly be yourself, it’s time to express your individuality! Dramatic braids are perfect while you travel. Just take care of them by washing once a week, and pamper your scalp with moisturising spray two to three times a week. Finally, sleep in a satin scarf to prevent friction and breakage.


ATLANTA This urban spot is where the young and trendy musicians gather: the perfect place to rock natural curls! Keep your locks well moisturised with coconut oil-based products, and amp up the gloss factor with a shine-enhancing spray.

AMSTERDAM When you have almost 900 000 bicycles whizzing past, you need a style that won’t get windblown! Use a fine-tooth rat-tail comb to make a sharp middle parting, then create tight double Dutch braids, misting the sections with lightweight hairspray as you work for hold and added grip.



Out with the blah, and in with the aah! Summer styles to try tonight.




Uber volume Studio 54-inspired curls were a huge hit at the Diane von Furstenberg and Sonia Rykiel shows. Hairstylist Orlando Pita says, “I’m so happy that people are embracing texture. It’s beautiful.” At Diane von Furstenberg, he prepped hair with gel before taking a curling iron to it and pinning the curls in place. Then, 30 minutes before the show started, the curls were brushed out with a paddle brush to create bouncy, imperfect rings. Sonia Rykiel was all about a flat crown and large, flowing waves in the lengths. Gorgeous for party-goers!

Long and Low Sophisticated and easy to do, the low ponytail is staging a comeback. Keep it fresh by tying it at the centre of the nape of your neck as seen at the Stéphane Rolland show. Wear it in a sleek centre parting, side parted like at Salvatore Ferragamo or with no parting at all. For a point of interest, add a headband or thin gold or silver bands.




Short story The short cuts spotted at Burberry, Versace and Moschino have us wanting to reach for the scissors. Summer’s crop inspiration: piecey bowl cuts, ’60s-inspired chops and textured pixie trims.

Texture takeover







Gone are the days of models having cookie-cutter hairstyles on the runway. Designers like DSquared2, Jean Paul Gaultier and Antonio Ortega are staying up to date with voluminous textured hair and natural coils – proof that it’s time to embrace what your mama gave you! Hair was brushed out and teased to create a curly halo, which could be the perfect summer look for you if you struggle with frizz. It’s on trend, showstopping and super easy to manage.

Path perfection The quickest way to make over your style: change your parting. This season, it’s all going down the middle, making centre partings the go-to look. From soft waves at Elie Saab to flowing locks at Emporio Armani, the centre parting has transformative powers.

Things got really glossy on the runways, and we’re not talking about lips. Hervé Leger and Cushnie et Ochs embraced this trend full-on using wet-look gel to keep hairs on the crown flat, with flowing lengths down the back, while Jason Wu and Yigal Azrouël kept it tied up in a tight bun in the middle of the head.



Wet-look wonders




Knot news The elegantly chic chignon has been, and always will be, a classic on the runway. However at the Ashish and BCBG Max Azria shows we saw it reinvented. Models had semi-dried hair sectioned into six parts. Each was twisted into a small bun and pinned down with a bobby pin, and multiple knots around the head gave the hairstyle a playful edge. For even more drama, Vivienne Westwood went vertical, adding a streak of bright yellow hair to the models’ sky-high knots, giving them a vibrant pop of colour.

Beautiful braids Whether whimsical or intricate, plaits aren’t going anywhere – and they’re getting more versatile and creative every year! Get inspired by these braided locks seen at Cristiano Burani, Desigual and Pascal Millet. From lounging by the pool to hiking, they are practical and cool for every day.


’80s Revival These oldies became modern goldies on the runways, and each with its own twist: Jean Paul Gaultier revamped the Mohawk with blunt edges at the crown combined with a pixie cut, while Shiatzy Chen brought messy fringes into the mix. At Stella Jean (not pictured), the business-in-the-front, party-at-the-back mullet was given a romantic upscale, with added waves at the neck and pinned curls on top. Who knew a mullet could be so elegant?

Snip decisions Celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan makes over your style for summer.

A sleek fringe “An A-line bob with a fringe is a good way to update that beachy lob that’s been popular,” says Chris. And even though the new style ends above the shoulders, it behaves much like a longer one. “You can still pull it back without a thousand bobby pins,” he notes. The blunt cut does require some effort; thick hair poufs up easily, and thin strands tend to deflate. For the former scenario, use a leave-in conditioner and pull the ends downwards with a paddle brush as you blowdry upside down for lift. Then, run a flatiron over the fringe to keep the ends from curling underneath.



highlights cool cuts


Big, healthy curls Curls are passionate about their anatomy, at least according to Chris: “Don’t try to tame them – just shape them a little.” He first brushed out the model’s curls before snipping off the damaged ends in dry, 3cm sections. “Even a small trim can give natural hair a completely new look, and this circular shape feels cleaner for the new season,” he says.



Chunky layers No, we’re not suggesting you cut a fringe like mutton chops (though hey, more power to you), but we do like the idea of layers – lots of them – and the thicker the better. “Sharp, geometric lines are really popular right now in clothing, and hair is starting to reflect that,” says Chris, who recommends cutting “long, blunt layers that start at your jawline” to make this trend something you’d actually wear. “The layers are long enough to slick back into a bun, but short enough to fake a sideswept fringe,” he adds.



highlights cool cuts

A short(er) cut Hair this cropped can veer into GI Jane territory if it isn’t balanced. “A wash of apricotblonde dye gives the gamine style some femininity and keeps it from looking severe,” explains Chris. “I loved the golden tones in her original hair colour, so we just amped up the lightness to contrast with her dark brows.” The result: a soft, modern pixie with androgynous appeal. Mix light-hold hairspray and a drop of hair oil between your hands, and rake it through the hair for subtle definition, suggests Chris.

SCALP TRUTHS Hair loss? Dandruff? Not sexy conditions, but a reality for many women. To help you get your bounce – and black shirts – back, trichologist Trevenen Bam answers your scalp-saving questions.



ardiologists know everything about the heart. Neurologists are experts on the brain. And when it comes to shedding light on the secrets of your scalp and hair, no one does it better than a trichologist. Trevenen Bam from the Cape Town Trichology Centre is one such expert, specialising in scalp and hair problems – think hair loss, baldness and scaling issues, like dandruff – and their non-medical treatment. Read on for everything you need to know about the science of keeping your follicles healthy and flake-free.







Excessive hair loss, thinning and breaking hair, patches of baldness, scaling concerns – either in sections or over the entire scalp – and excessive oiliness or itching of the scalp.  

Possibly. Not using the right products is the biggest mistake women make, so invest in a quality shampoo, conditioner and treatment. And never skimp on a heat-protecting spray when using a hairdryer or flatiron – without it, your hair is left vulnerable.

It provides the foundation for healthy hair. People tend to focus a lot on their hair, which is OK, but what’s not OK is forgetting that your scalp is what truly needs the attention. Without a healthy scalp, you’ll have issues with hair growth and health.

Dandruff “WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRY SCALP AND DANDRUFF?”  Dry scalp is characterised by small, white flakes. It can be caused by severe dehydration of the scalp, using poor quality shampoos and conditioners that strip your scalp of its natural oils, overwashing, washing with hot water or even just a change of season. Dandruff, on the other hand, is usually characterised by larger, greasy or waxy flakes or clusters of skin cells, which are typically yellow or grey in colour. 

“WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO TACKLE DANDRUFF?”  Use shampoos and conditioners that contain tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is great because it has natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Cut down on using styling products as well, and whatever you do, avoid scratching! This can damage your scalp, making it vulnerable to infections. Use Philip Kingsley Flaky/Itchy Scalp Shampoo (R270) and Philip Kingsley Flaky/Itchy Scalp Toner (R270). The shampoo acts as a mild keratolytic (softening and releasing excess skin) and astringent properties in the toner alleviate itchiness.

Growth “CAN I DO ANYTHING TO MAKE MY HAIR GROW FASTER?” There are products that promote faster growth, but in reality, the speed of hair growth is determined by your genetics. You can make your hair grow stronger through your diet and good haircare, but not faster.

“WHAT CAN I EAT TO ENCOURAGE GROWTH?” Include adequate amounts of protein, omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins. If you’re going vegan or are fasting for extended periods, you may experience shedding. This may be due to inadequate protein intake. Also, feed your hair from the outside by using shampoos and conditioners that target the scalp while hydrating the hair at the same time. And condition after every shampoo to strengthen, smooth and increase the resilience of your hair to protect it from stressors.

“HOW MUCH VITAMIN B AND OMEGA-3S DO I NEED TO TAKE TO GET MY HAIR TO GROW?” There’s no official recommended daily allowance of omega-3s, but most health organisations agree that 250-500mg a day of combined EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids is enough for an adult. The recommended amount of vitamin B depends on your age, but 2.4mcg is suggested for adults.

“WHAT SHOULD I EAT TO GET VITAMIN B12?” Vitamin B12 boosts your metabolism, helping to deliver nutrients to your scalp. It can be found in a variety of foods, including beef liver, clams, fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk and dairy products. Some breakfast cereals, nutritional yeasts and other food products are also fortified with vitamin B12 – check the label to find out if it has been added. 47

TIP! Your scalp could benefit from an exfoliation, too. Add a tablespoon of sugar to your regular shampoo, massage in, then rinse thoroughly.

Care “CAN TYING MY HAIR TOO TIGHT DAMAGE IT?”  Traction alopecia is a form of hair loss due to traction or pulling. It’s caused by putting the hair under constant strain or tension, leading to areas of thinning hair, usually around the temples or behind your ears. Your parting might also look wider than usual.

“WHAT CAUSES IT?” Very tight ponies or pigtails; tight braids or cornrows; dreadlocks; single-strand extension braids; weaves or wigs attached with glue, clips or tape; certain hair clips or slides that hold the hair tightly and are worn in the same position every day; headbands – even fabric ones – worn daily; headgear like cycling helmets, which are worn frequently or for long stretches of time and rub or pull repeatedly on the same area; repeated use of hair rollers; constant pulling of the hair with your hands (a condition called trichotillomania).

“CAN TRACTION ALOPECIA BE REVERSED?” Yes, and no. If you spot the warning signs early enough and put a stop to whatever’s causing your traction alopecia, then your hair will stop falling out and should – with time, patience and TLC – be completely restored to its former glory. But if the hair follicles have been so badly traumatised for such a long period of time that they’ve scarred over, then the hair won’t grow back by itself and the affected areas of your scalp might look shiny. If this is the case, you’ll need to consider surgical restoration, which essentially involves transplanting hair from an unaffected area to the affected area. Contact a trichologist to find out whether or not you need surgery and to discuss the options open to you.

“What must I avoid to keep my scalp as healthy as possible?” Prevent dryness or oiliness by washing your hair frequently using good-quality, deep-penetrating shampoos. Avoid harmful chemicals that may remain on the scalp or cause any sort of abrasive reaction. As a guideline, steer clear of the following ingredients: t Alcohol (when listed as one of the first four ingredients) t Ammonium lauryl sulphate t Diethanolamine (DEA)  t Dimethicone  t Formaldehyde t Lanolin t Mineral oil t Parabens (like methylparaben or propylparaben) t Petroleum t Polyethylene glycol FIND SIMPLE TRICKS TO PAMPER YOUR SCALP AT GLAMOUR.CO.ZA.

Hair loss “What are the main causes of hair loss in women?” HAIR SHEDDING AFTER PREGNANCY, SURGERY, WEIGHT LOSS AND STRESS


Known as telogen effluvium, this causes sufferers to lose large amounts of hair daily, usually when shampooing, styling or brushing. It can also occur as a side effect of certain medications, such as antidepressants, beta blockers and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Symptoms You’ll typically notice hair loss six weeks to three months after a stressful event. At its peak, you may lose handfuls of hair.



This is the most common form of hair loss according to dermatologists. The gene can be inherited from either your mother’s or your father’s side, although you’re more likely to have it if both of your parents did. Symptoms Thinning at the hairline, which develops slowly and may start as early as in your 20s. In some cases, the hair loss may be spread across the entire scalp.



Women who have heavy periods or don’t eat enough iron-rich foods may be prone to this, which causes a shortage of red blood cells. A blood test to measure ferritin, the protein that stores iron in your tissues, is usually needed to diagnose iron deficiency anaemia. Your doctor may

also check the haematocrit, or ‘thickness’, of your blood, which gauges how much of it is made up of red blood cells. Symptoms Extreme fatigue, weakness and pale skin. You may also notice headaches, difficulty concentrating, cold hands and feet, and hair loss. Any type of exertion may leave you short of breath.





As many as five million women suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It can begin as early as age 11, and is caused by a hormonal imbalance in which the ovaries produce too many male hormones. PCOS can often cause infertility. Symptoms Cysts on the ovaries, facial hair growth, irregular periods, acne and possible hair loss on your scalp.

This is an autoimmune disorder in which your immune system attacks your hair follicles. It occurs equally in men and women. Unfortunately, the cause is unknown, but it is thought that it could be triggered by stress or illness. Symptoms Round, smooth patches of baldness on your scalp, eyebrows or legs. Total hair loss on the head is known as alopecia totalis, while hair loss that occurs all over the body is called alopecia universalis. Some patients have said that before the bald spot occurred, they felt a tingling in that area.


Love your texture! To say that we’re completely obsessed with singer Esperanza Spalding’s curls would be an understatement. Her number-one rule for making natural curls look great? Let them do their own thing!


speranza Spalding is our current music icon and hair crush. We’ve watched this classically trained jazz singer and bassist rocking those curls everywhere from the Grammy Awards to the White House – and how she embraces her hair’s natural texture is the ultimate beauty inspiration. “I let my curls do their thing – when my hair is wild, that’s when it’s doing its best thing,” says 32-year-old Esperanza. She especially likes it big and brushed out: “I feel I can pick up more inspiration – you know, like my antennae are up.” With her fifth album, Emily’s D+Evolution, out this year, the Portland, Oregon native put down her bass to talk beauty and self-esteem.

When did you start to love your curls? At 15, I decided to bleach my hair, relax it, colour it – I did everything. At 17, when I left home [for Berklee College of Music in Boston], I shaved my hair to less than a centimetre on my head. As it grew into an

Afro, I liked that look. And it’s pretty much been growing out like that ever since. I like to let it be completely wild; it forces me to face people not knowing how I’m being seen. I don’t know what it’s doing and I just have to be cool with that – especially if I’m around somebody new. I’m like, “All right, let’s go. This is it, unfiltered.”

Your brushed-out ’Fro is your signature look, but it wasn’t always. How did you deal with your hair growing up? Growing up, my hair was no fun at all. My mom never let me flatiron it or put relaxer in it; she wanted me to embrace what my hair did naturally. I was allowed to brush it and let it dry, but that was it. When I was 12, my hair was really thick and super curly – so dense and impossible. I went through a very embarrassing few years there. I just wanted to get my hair out of my life, out of the way, out of people’s sight and away from everything because it was so crazy.

For your new album and tour, you wear your hair in uncharacteristic braids. Why did you depart from your usual style?

Emily, which is my middle name and what I was called growing up, is my on-stage alter ego. She’s also the inspiration for Emily’s D+Evolution. Her look reflects who she is and what she’s about, and draws from my childhood. Her hair is different from how I usually wear it: she has long, twisted-down braids, soaking up the energy of her world.

A sculptural shape “It’s a bit romantic; there’s a softness around the face,” says hairstylist Ben Skervin of this pulled-back style. To get the look, first add a tiny drop of oil to subtly define airdried strands.

New styles  Curly hair wonders.  Your look, your way.  Insider tips and tricks. 55


From loosely bent and wavy to tightly coiled and springy, five women tell us how they master their hair’s every twist and turn. TORI KELLY

Body builder “My hair is actually pretty flat and wavy,” reveals singer, songwriter and producer Tori Kelly, whose (seven-step!) routine – and diffuser – help her fake a fuller, curlier style.


Only shampoo your locks every few days

Comb a mask through midlengths to ends

Tame fuzziness with oil

After rinsing out her conditioner, Tori applies a hydrating hair mask.

Blot your hair dry, don’t rub it

Tori uses a cotton T-shirt to absorb the water and avoids using a towel.

Apply products while your hair is still damp

“I smooth on a putty for definition, and then I spritz my head all over with sea salt spray,” Tori says.

Before drying her curls, Tori adds a texturising spray. “I also spray it on throughout the day if I need to add more volume,” she explains.


Tori coats her ends with the “tiniest bit” of oil to combat frizz.

“My hair looks better when it’s dirty,” says Tori, who shampoos and conditions with an oil-rich shampoo and a colour-protecting conditioner.

Rule model Singer-songwriter Kandace Springs swears by these rules. Ditch your hair brush

1 2 3

“My mom used to brush my curls when they were dry, and the brush would always get stuck,” reveals Kandace.


Work with your texture

“I once tried to straighten my hair for a wedding using a really cheap flatiron, and my curls got caught in it,” says Kandace. “I got them out, but a few days later my hair started breaking.”

Pop and loc “If you have curly hair, the LOC (Leave-in conditioner, Oil and Cream) method will save your life,” says Transparent actress Kiersey Clemons. The leave-in conditioner provides muchneeded moisture, while the oil and cream create a layer that prevents water from evaporating – and your hair from frizzing. Layer all three products for perfect natural-looking texture.

Have fun with your hair

“When I cut my hair short, suddenly I had a boring brown circle of curls,” says Kandace. “I’m an artist, and I love to paint, so I wanted some colour.” The solution? Kandace decided to bleach her ends a coppery caramel shade. “It gives my curls more definition.”


Laugh lines The best way to handle curls? Embrace them. “People would make fun of my cotton-candy hair,” says Broad City star Ilana Glazer, who grew up surrounded by girls with “silk curtains” of long layers. “Even now, people think curls represent a joke, like, ‘She’s the wacky one!’ – which I don’t think is true.” Ilana’s attitude towards her hair didn’t change until university, when she found confidence through comedy. “I started doing stand-up – and that’s when I really accepted my hair,” Ilana explains. That acceptance grew to love: “My curls are dope,” she says. “They’re one of my strengths. I want to nourish them, not change them.”

Curls we love


“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Technically, Charles Dickens was referring to tensions in 18th century Europe, but he could just as easily have been describing life with curly hair. (The man did have a spiralled comb-over, after all!) Curls can frizz and flop, but they can also bounce, tumble and look angelic, as seen on runway models the world over.


Colour code Photographer Olivia Bee’s fine, loose curls reflect how some dye jobs work well – while others, not so much.

Pink “I was going for pastel, but instead I looked like a Pokémon.”

Platinum blonde


“I loved the blonde, but my scalp was so sensitive from the bleach that my head felt like it was on fire. Bleach kills curls!”

Orange “The pink faded to a cool orangey pink. My curls were stretched out into waves, and I felt very ’70s sexy.”

honest, I’m quite scared to go back down that route after restoring my hairline.

What tips do you have for maintaining a healthy hairline? 

Take care not to overwork your temple and nape area. If you’re a braid lover, take breaks in between changing your braiding styles. If you’re relaxing, the very last thing you should do is apply a styling cream as the chemicals will overwork your hair and weaken it. And when wearing it natural, don’t ever pull your hair too tight.

Ask your hairstylist not to braid or pull your hair too tight along the hairline when prepping for a protective style. Stylists tend to pull so hard that strands start breaking off, and it’s important to be gentle. Also use a hair-strengthening balm, like Dr Miracle’s Temple And Nape Gro Balm (R112.95), every day.

The beauty blogger Cynthia Gwebu With more than 150 000 YouTube views and a love for all things beauty, this writer and video blogger knows about locks. What’s your haircare routine? When I’m not wearing a protective style, I wash my hair about once a week and blowdry. Then I oil my scalp with antidandruff hair food to keep it healthy.

Do you have the same care approach with a weave or braids? Yes, just like my natural hair. I co-wash my extensions once a week and leave them to airdry. When they’re just damp, I go over them with my favourite hair serum Kérastase Resistance Sérum Thérapiste (R470).

How do you care for your natural hair while wearing protective hairstyles, like braids and weaves? My go-to protective style is a weave, so my 60

How do you save time with styling? I’ve learnt to embrace the ‘wet look’. I don’t always blowdry my natural hair after washing. Sometimes I just towel-dry it and leave it damp, then I spray on lots of Mizani Miracle Milk (R169) and secure it in a top knot. I smooth down the curly edges with Dr Miracle’s Temple and Nape Gro Balm.

What’s your favourite special-occasion style? I love the no-fuss appeal of a weave: I don’t stress about getting my hair done for special occasions as I normally keep it wavy which can be casual and formal, depending on my outfit. For my natural hair, however, I like to add clip-in extensions for evening, and for day, I opt for my signature top knot.

Have you experienced any hair nightmares? During my first three years of university, I used to braid my hair quite often, which totally butchered my hairline. Of course, it happened over a long period of time, but it felt as though I woke up one morning and the hair along my hairline had disappeared! I haven’t braided my hair since, and if I’m

What’s your absolute hair DON’T?

What’s the biggest misconception people have about ethnic hair? Strangely, some people think that women with ethnic hair don’t wash it. We do!

What’s your must-have product? My Sunsilk Anti-Dandruff Scalp Moisturiser (R21.95). I have a dry and itchy scalp, so this soothes it enormously. I freak out if I realise I no longer have any left!

What’s your favourite ethnic haircare brand? Dr Miracle’s. They’re incredibly innovative when it comes to ethnic haircare, and I adore the quality of their products.

Do you have any hair icons? Actress and TV presenter Pearl Thusi. While we don’t have the same curl pattern, she still gives me #hairgoals. I mean, have you seen that volume?

Your top tip? Don’t neglect your natural hair when you go for a protective style. If anything, you need to be more attentive and make sure that it’s receiving all the nutrition it needs. Many women make the mistake of ignoring their natural hair when wearing weaves, and breakage and matting (when your hair clumps together) occurs.

“Ethnic or curly hair tends to be dehydrated, so locking in moisture is key.” – Hanson Ndabeni

What tips do you have for maintaining a healthy hairline?

The professional Hanson Ndabeni For expert advice, Hanson Ndabeni, Dark and Lovely national field and education manager, is your go-to guy!

The hairline is a delicate area. Make sure that neither you nor your stylist pulls on it, as this can cause traction alopecia, gradual hair loss caused by constant strain at the roots. And a resting stage between weaving or braiding is a must to promote growth.

Wash your hair at least once a week with shampoo and conditioner. It’s also important to do regular

What’s your haircare routine? Once a week, I pre-shampoo, shampoo, deep condition and apply a leave-in conditioner or treatment, then I seal it with whipped shea butter. My styles are mostly low-maintenance, and I prefer 62

What’s the biggest misconception people have about ethnic hair?

What’s your must-have product? Definitely hair moisturiser. Ethnic or curly hair tends to be dehydrated, so locking in moisture is key.

Natural hair can take a very long time to wash, so always do it in sections. Wash, condition and detangle each section, then move on to the next. Knot-free hair is also easier to style.

to finish. I often apply deep conditioner, leave it on overnight and then rinse it out in the morning. You don’t have to do everything at once! I also like to use heat when doing treatments, as it speeds up the time in which the product penetrates.

How do you care for your natural hair while wearing protective hairstyles like braids and weaves?

The writer shares her tips for natural, healthy locks.

You should definitely avoid products that have bleach in them. Never keep your braids or weaves in for longer than six weeks, and don’t apply dyes on the same day that you relax. Your hair will break from the over-processing.

I prefer products that have gone through a scientific process, which promises top results.

Yes. I wear synthetic extensions and wash them once every two weeks. Then I use serums to tame flyaways.

I make sure to coat my hair and scalp with a moisturising spray. I also do weekly scalp massages with a castor oil mix, which I’ll use on its own or blend with deep conditioners for an extra boost. 

Do you have any DIY treatment recipes? My whipped shea butter mix is a lifesaver for locking in moisture! Just mix the following ingredients together and store in a tightly-sealed jar: 90g shea butter 2 tbsp jojoba oil 1 tbsp Jamaican black castor oil 10 drops lavender essential oil

How do you save time with styling? Washing hair can take time from start

Follow a strict maintenance routine. See your locks as an extension of your skin – you need to look after it just as much as you would your skin.

What’s your absolute hair DON’T? Don’t use products that contain paraffin, petroleum or petrolatum. Products with these ingredients claim to act as barriers for locking in moisture and adding shine to hair, but all they really do is coat it in oily minerals, which can lead to breakage down the line.

What’s your must-have product? A weekly, protein-rich deep conditioner. My hair is prone to dryness and the deep conditioner provides a deeper, more intense hydration to calm dry and brittle ends. And it’s much more effective than moisturiser and leave-in conditioner.

What’s your number-one care tip? Find products that work for you and stick to them. Most products take time to show results, but if you’re consistent, your hair will get healthier and look gorgeous.

Solange Knowles

What’s your absolute hair DON’T? Try not to use shampoo. Ethnic and curly hair already lacks moisture, and you should be adding moisture instead of stripping it out.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about ethnic hair? That natural hair isn’t as beautiful as a weave. It’s really empowering when you embrace your natural locks.

Rules for healthy hair

In the age of blowdry bars, extreme dye jobs and perms (yes, they’re back!), it’s not a question of if your tresses are damaged, but of how bad the situation really is. Before you start feeling hopeless because you’d sooner sell your soul than give up your flatiron, consider that even wrecked locks can be revived with a few sneaky little adjustments to your routine. According to scientists, shinier, healthier-looking hair is just a few tricks (and one roll of paper towels) away. Rule 1 Wet your hair less

Water makes hair swell from the inside, which forces the cuticle up. “When that happens over and over again, you get frizz and breakage,” explains cosmetic chemist Randy Schueller. “Don’t wash your hair more than you have to. Whenever you can, skip a day.” Instead, embrace a dry shampoo that absorbs hardcore oils and odours, like [1] Hask Revive & Refresh Daily Hair Mist (R149.95), which removes grease and unwanted smells.

Text: Elizabeth Siegal; Photography: Patrick Demarchelier

Rule 2 Rethink your shower routine On those days when you do wash your hair, add a pre-shampoo to your routine. Yep, that’s a thing! (See our ‘When did shampoo get so tricky?’ feature in the Products section). It works like a sealant, “smoothing the hair’s cuticle before it gets wet so that there’s less damage,” reveals cosmetic chemist Ni’Kita Wilson, who recommends using one no matter your hair type. “When your hair rubs together, the edges fray,” she explains. We like [2] TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner (R96.99).

Rule 3 Be smarter about your shampoo Don’t worry about sulphates vs no sulphates. “We tested sulphates against other cleansers and didn’t see any difference in terms of damage or fading colour,” says Randy. “All shampoos have detergents that strip oil and colour from your hair.” And don’t even think

of touching a clarifying formula – they’re meant to strip your hair of anything and everything. What you want is a shampoo that says ‘damage repairing’ on the label, and has proteins to strengthen your hair, or a cleansing conditioner, which has the lowest concentration of detergents. TRY [3] Matrix Total Results So Long Damage Shampoo (R99). One word of warning to fans of hairspray, silicone serum or mousse: you’ll need to alternate a conditioning shampoo, like [5] Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo (R265) with a regular shampoo like [4] Pantene Repair & Protect Shampoo (R33.95). “Conditioning shampoos can’t remove the product residue that makes hair less flexible and leads to breakage,” explains Ni’Kita.

Rule 4 Make conditioner a must-have We all know that they smooth frizz and make your hair softer and shinier, but if you own a blowdryer or flatiron, you should also know that conditioners are critical for heat protection. “It’s just as important as heat-protectant spray, if not more, because conditioner is better at coating the hair,” says Ni’Kita. Skim labels for ingredients that won’t rinse off – words with ‘methicone’ or ‘polyquaternium’ in them – or just get one of our favourites: [6] Dove Nutrive Solutions Intensive Repair Mask (R45.95). Leave it on for at least five minutes, and then rinse with cool water. “This allows for more residual conditioner to be left on the hair,” she says.








TIP! Bleached hair is like a sponge – it’s porous, so it soaks up water, but loses that moisture just as quickly. Look for hydrating products that encourage moisture hold.

lessons damage control

Rule 5 Spritz on layers of heat protectant

Rule 8 Cool your head

Since heat is the worst thing for your hair, double down with a heat-protectant spray. But recognise that if it’s going to work, you’ve got to apply it the correct hairstylist way: grab small sections of damp hair and mist each one up and down the length (two or three spritzes per section). When you’re finished, comb your hair to distribute the formula – heat protectants are pretty useless if they aren’t applied all over, reveals Ni’Kita, and getting there takes only a few seconds. We recommend: [7] Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection (R365) and [10] ghd Style Heat Protect Spray (R210).

Rule 6 Move things along Anything that speeds up a blowdry is good – less heat means less damage to your locks – so humour us with an experiment. The next time you’re drying your hair, blot (don’t rub) your tresses with your usual bath towel. Then, do the same with regular kitchen paper towels. “You’ll be shocked at how much more water comes out of your hair and how it makes your blowdries take half the time,” says stylist Adir Abergel. Add a quick-dry hairspray, and you’ll be watching your favourite show again in no time. We like [9] L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Hot & Go (R84.95), which contains ingredients that help wick water away from your locks for a faster blowdry.

Rule 7 Save your shirts We kid you not: your cotton T-shirt is gentler on your hair than a towel. It’s why top hairstylists, including the man behind MaryKate and Ashley Olsen’s signature waves, Mark Townsend, keep them on hand. “They don’t rough up the cuticle as much, so you don’t have to work as hard to smooth the hair and make it look healthy,” Mark explains.

If your hair feels hot after you blowdry or flatiron, it means that it’s still frying. “If you remove a steak from the braai, it continues to cook, and it’s the same thing with heat retention from a blowdryer, flatiron or curling iron,” says Ni’Kita. Hit the cold-shot button on your dryer. We recommend [8] Vidal Sassoon Volume Brilliance Dryer (R299).

Rule 9 Get creative If you air-dry your locks overnight, you can minimise damage and free up time for snoozing, coffee or whatever in the morning. One trick that works for all hair types: sleep with damp hair in two loose braids. “It smooths frizz, loosens curls and gives straight hair beachy waves,” explains Emma Stone’s hairstylist, Mara Roszak.







Rule 10 Treat your scalp Weekly scalp treatments make a bigger difference in the long run than you’d think. “Keeping the hair follicles clean prevents the blockage and inflammation that leads to thinning hair later in life,” says dermatologist Dr Neil Sadick. “Look out for salicylic acid, which is better at cleaning the scalp, even if you don’t have dandruff,” says Dr Sadick. We adore shampooing with [11] L’Oréal Professionnel Sensi Balance Shampoo (R225).

Rule 11 Add shine factor Sure, you could use shine sprays and serums, but they’re like fake breasts – they change the appearance, but sometimes they don’t look so natural. Dry oils are the way to go. They contain the lightest silicones and oils, and create the most believable shimmer. “They smooth the hair’s cuticle, which is the hallmark of healthy hair,” explains Ni’Kita. We like [12] Marc Anthony Oil Of Morocco Argan Oil Dry Styling Oil (R169.95).

Aura is the master of extreme hair colour – and of minimising damage along the way. Try her tricks and follow her advice on saving your strands when you dye.


Head to the kitchen

“Coconut oil is the best DIY treatment for moisturising hair – apply it to damp hair and leave it on overnight every other week.” In the morning, rinse.



Detox your locks

“Chlorine and minerals in water can oxidise blonde hair, causing it to look yellow or even green. Treat the hair before you remove material build-up.”


Do your homework

“I’m really careful about extreme colour changes. I mix Olaplex into the hair colour, bleach and lighteners. It bonds to the broken sulphur-hydrogen links.”


Try the trends

“Pink hair, pastels and rose golds and strong grey-silvers are really making me happy. Soft, cool strawberryblonde is also a favourite.”

Quality wigs and weaves make changing up your texture and length easy, as demonstrated here by catwalk sensation Sessilee Lopez.


t 27, model Sessilee Lopez is a global style star. And having walked for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Armani and modelled for US, Italian, French and Japanese Vogue among others, she’s been able to learn from the best stylists in the business. “My own weave takes commitment and investment, starting with professional application that can’t be rushed,” Sessilee explains. “I sleep in a silk headscarf at night and then in the morning, I touch up the style with a flatiron on a low setting and apply a little wax to the baby hairs on my hairline. When you have a long weave like mine, you’re married to the look!” But what about the days when she feels less committed? Well, that’s where wigs come into the picture, reveals Kiyo Igarashi, the hairstylist who created the looks here. “Wigs are a great accessory because they can transform you instantly,” explains Kiyo. “And if you want, you can refashion your hair on a daily basis.” Thomas Tsheola, the technical centre manager at Darling and Frika, adds that wigs are also great for adding length or changing texture. “And a good quality one lasts for years,” he says. “Of course, they are also the perfect solution for women who are suffering from hair loss.”

Look 1 ’70s Waves This wavy, layered wig is a classic. “But consider your face shape before investing,” recommends Thomas. “Oval-shaped faces can wear just about any style, curly wigs are great for oblong faces, and chin-length wigs suit heart-shaped faces as they add height.” Got a square face? “Balance it off with longer layers,” he suggests. 80

Look 2 Romantic layers Are you considering a weave like Sessilee’s? Look at your natural hair first. “Check the colour and texture, and choose a weave length that complements that,” advises Thomas. “If you want something easy that doesn’t need styling, go synthetic. If you want to heat-style, try human hair, but remember to use a heat protector.”

Wanting a supermodel finish? The pros share their tips! “How should I care for my wig to make it last?” “Don’t wash it too often and avoid heat where possible,” explains Kiyo. To wash, “Add moisturising shampoo to a basin of cool water. Soak your wig for five minutes, then rinse thoroughly in cool water. Don’t rub. Dab gently with a towel. Don’t squeeze or twist and never brush or comb your wig while it’s wet. Then hang it to air-dry, or use a hairdryer on a low setting,” says Thomas. Don’t let it dry flat or the hair will dry in that shape.

“Which is better: a real wig or a synthetic one?” “Consider your budget and needs. Human hair looks like natural hair, but also has the same downfalls – it needs to be styled and treated just like your own hair. Synthetic hair holds the style, but it’s heat sensitive, so you won’t be able to add heat to it or it may melt,” reveals Thomas. Avoid synthetic hair that’s too shiny – it looks fake.

“How do I know whether a wig is real or synthetic?” Do this test, suggests Thomas: “Remove a single strand from the wig. Hold it with a pair of tweezers, then bring it to a flame. Note the smell. Human hair is a protein that flickers with a quick burst of orange, then chars, leaving a dark ash. Synthetic fibres are made of Kanekalon or Toyokalon. They melt slowly and continue to burn, even when removed from the flame. The ash becomes a hard plastic bead.”

“How often should I replace my weave?” “At least once every eight weeks,” recommends Thomas. “Any longer and the lengths become knotted and matte. Remember, you want your hair to shine!”

“How often should I wash my weave?” Be gentle, explains Kiyo. “But wash at least once a week with a moisturising shampoo and conditioner.” Remember that your weave picks up bad odours and 82

debris in the same way as your own hair does. If you work out a lot, sweat will also settle on your locks, as well as oil from your scalp. If you’re worried about washing yourself, go to a pro who will make sure that the roots are completely dry, as damp roots can cause mildew.

Look 3 Sleek fringe To keep the ends of the wig smooth, gently remove tangles with your fingers or a pick comb. “Avoid brushing it,” advises Thomas. “And only wash when there is build-up from styling products like serums, waxes and texturisers.” For a comfortable fit, “cornrow your hair first,” suggests Kiyo. “It helps the wig fit the shape of your head.” Then, consider the hair type: “Human hair wigs are thicker, while synthetic hair is lighter – ideal for when it’s hot,” reveals Thomas.

PLATINUM Soo Joo Park Model

How I got this colour I’m Korean – it’s who I am, how I look and dictates my personal style. But I moved to the US when I was 10, so I’m also American. I speak English, I understand Western traditions and I’m obsessed with rock music. In fact, I was a child who didn’t believe in conventional ideals of Asian beauty, and Debbie Harry and Karen O were my beauty icons. Personality wise, too, I think that I’m a blonde – free-spirited, easygoing and chilled. Growing up, I was that girl who got bored and did stuf to her hair. In high school, I experimented with diferent styles: a super-blunt fringe and a wacky bowl cut. But it wasn’t until I started modelling six years ago that I began bleaching my hair. It took over eight years to go from jet black to white blonde, and ever since, it’s stuck. While the response to my hair has been mostly positive (even my grandmother loves it!), one casting director once told me he wished I’d never dyed it. I said, “This is me – take it or leave it.” My hair doesn’t define me; it’s just a part of who I am. Sure, blonde hair sets me apart, and has helped me get a foot in the door, but the rest? All me. 84


My maintenance strategy I’m not going to lie, keeping my hair looking good is really hard. I see my colourist Dhaniel Doud every four weeks to touch up my dark roots. I like to leave a little bit of root showing because it looks cooler, and the process doesn’t burn my scalp as much. Also, I always put some coconut oil on my scalp before I bleach, to prevent irritation and itchiness. At home, my shower routine is no joke. It takes an hour and a half to use all of my products: Redken Extreme primer, shampoo, conditioner, split-end sealer and mask.

My styling tricks I’ve definitely styled my hair to death, usually during fashion week or for events and photo shoots. But in real life, my favourite look is Beyoncé’s ‘Drunk in love’ hair, which I achieve with just conditioner. I put a small blob in my hair when it’s still damp, and it air-dries all sexy. At the end of the night, I’ll rinse it out, and boom – it’s a nourishing treatment, too.

OMBRÉ Carly Cushnie Designer

How I got this colour When I was younger, I used to chemically straighten my hair, so I couldn’t relax and dye it or I would have no hair left. When I finally decided to leave it natural (in 2003), it was my first opportunity to experiment with colour. I started with some very subtle lowlights, and then I progressively went lighter and lighter. Sometimes even too light: once I had someone besides my regular colourist do my hair, and it went horribly wrong – it was so patchy that I looked like Dennis Rodman! But it helped me get to my current shade, which has a lighter base and highlights. I like it to look as naturally ombré as possible. Because my hair is curly, it needs diferent tones of gold, otherwise it doesn’t have any dimension. But it’s funny – even though I’m blonde, I don’t think of myself that way. If I were filling out a form, I would never describe myself as having blonde hair!

My colour upkeep My hair has a lot of red tones in it, and I don’t want it to come out looking orangey, so colouring is a really long process at the salon, which I have to visit every two months to maintain it. As soon as I start seeing roots, it annoys me and I want it fixed immediately. And I use a lot of Moroccanoil products: the shampoo, conditioner and mask. My hair is naturally really dry anyway, and the continuous colouring makes it even drier. Adding super-moisturising products counteracts this and makes it super shiny.

My new makeup MO Having blonde hair changed the way that I started doing my makeup. I don’t wear any grey or smoky tones on my eyes, as I think that it looks weird with my hair colour. Now, to complement my hair shades, I stick to flattering gold and brown hues. FOR 10 HAIR COLOUR DOS AND DON’TS, VISIT GLAMOUR.CO.ZA.

RED Christina Hendricks Actress

How I got this colour I was 10 years old the first time I coloured my hair. I had a very cool mom! I really wanted red hair, so she thought that it would be fun to put on a colour rinse. When I was young, I was very much into Anne of Green Gables, and Anne had red hair. I also watched Gilligan’s Island, and of course I loved Ginger. And even though I Love Lucy was in black-and-white, I knew that she was a redhead. There was just something about her… something sparkly! In high school, I started to dye my own hair, and I never turned back. I tried almost every colour of the rainbow: pink, purple and bright red, but also a really deep brown, and then for a while pitch black, much to my mom’s chagrin. I went back to red while modelling in my 20s – and I dyed it for a Clairol advert. I’ve actually maintained a similar red for the past 20 years. Red has always felt like me, but it was also very intertwined with my character [Joan Holloway] on Mad Men. I had red hair before I got the role, but because I was a redhead, Matt [Weiner, the show’s writer-producer] started making nods to it in the show’s script. Roger Sterling (played by John Slattery) called Joan ‘Red’, and it became a thing. But when the show ended, I finally had the freedom to play around. I found an inspiration photo of the old French singer Sylvie Vartan, and I just loved her style and blonde colour. Going blonde was my way of saying goodbye to Joan and 86


stepping into a new phase. People really have a big reaction to my hair colour changing. I enjoyed the blonde, but in the end, I went back to red. Others have a lot of opinions about me as a redhead. I think maybe more than with other colours.

My salon-free MO I’ve been doing my own hair colour for ages. I’m not particularly fussy, and I definitely don’t like sitting in a salon for hours. If you’re doing your own colour, you must – must – follow the instructions on the box! Don’t ever leave it on for too long, and as a precaution, pull up your bath mat before starting, in case you splatter.




My dye maintenance I’m pretty easy about products. I’ll use a colour-safe shampoo and conditioner because it’s milder, and I’m obsessed with the conditioner that comes in the dye box; I love that stuf. Also, going a couple of days without washing my hair helps keep the colour fresher for longer. And I always wear a hat when I’m in the sun, because it bleaches my hair and fades the colour so quickly.

TIP! Colour fades in the sun. Wear a hat or spritz on a UV protector.

lessons home care

Home hair colour A subtle hair change with at-home colouring can be hugely transformative. A little extra gloss here, the right shade of highlight there – knowing how to make the most of the 30-45 minutes at the mirror can make a big difference. See that? It’s not just your highlights that are looking a lot sunnier.

Hot highlights

Hair-colour hacks

Forget a full head of balayage (too tricky) and go for a few face-framing pieces instead.

There’s a cheat for everything in life, and hair colour is no exception.

Choose your dye Highlighting kits bleach your hair. “They’re great if you’re blonde, but if you’re a brunette or redhead, you’re better off with a permanent dye that’s two shades lighter than your colour,” says colourist James Corbett. “Cool” is the magic word in colour descriptions. Anything in the warm or golden category turns out redder on brunettes and yellower on blondes than you’d think. (Test the dye on an inconspicuous strand near the back of your neck.) Grab a new toothbrush “It gives you feathery highlights,” says James. Paint the dye on three small sections on either side of your face, using a light touch near the roots and more pressure as you pull the toothbrush through to the ends. “Natural-looking highlights are finest near the roots, and give that effect,” James explains. Keep it down If your highlights wind up looking more obvious than you’d like, tone them down with a tinted gloss that matches your base colour or is slightly lighter (wait a day first to let it develop). TRY L’Oréal Paris Casting Crème Gloss (R124.95).

Use oil to your advantage Having a little grease at your roots protects your scalp from the itchiness, tightness and redness that dyes can cause. So if your scalp is sensitive, shampoo two or three days before you colour your hair. (Don’t use styling products in between shampooing and dyeing, as they can block the absorption of hair colour.) Keep petroleum jelly nearby The goal here is to dye your hair, not your skin. You can prevent stains on your hairline, upper neck and the tops of your ears by applying hair wax, rich body cream or petroleum jelly to those areas first, recommends celebrity colourist Justin Anderson. Go for Vaseline Blue Seal Pure Petroleum Jelly (R35.95). Add water to your ends If you’re applying dye from your roots to ends, “the ends can get way too dark if they’ve been coloured before,” reveals James, who suggests smoothing water over your hair from the midshaft to the ends for the last five to 10 minutes that the dye is on. “It dilutes the hair colour just enough to make it look more natural,” James explains.

Bright, happy hair

“Oh no! ” moments

These steps will help you nix brassiness, dullness and overall blahness.

We’ve all made hair mistakes, so here are some common mishaps to watch out for.

1  2  3  4 

Avoid the orange If your brown hair colour is looking more like orange, “You need a semi-permanent dye that’s a little ashy to neutralise it,” recommends James. Look for “cool” browns (code for ashy). Blondes, beware Blonde is even more susceptible to turning orange or yellow, but fear not! All you need is a purple conditioner, like Nak Colour Masque Violet Pearl Conditioner (R440), to get your colour back. Refresh your red If your red hue is fading, a coppertinted semi-permanent dye will make your hair vibrant again. The same goes for reddish brown. Restore radiance with a spray If your ends are looking light – and not in a cool ombré way – or your colour is dull, add shine with a gloss spray like Goldwell Diamond Gloss (R210). FIND OUT HOW TO KEEP YOUR HAIR COLOUR FRESH ON GLAMOUR.CO.ZA.

Covering your greys has made you look older If this is the case, you left the dye on too long. “Brown hair can darken around the hairline more quickly, and it washes you out,” advises colourist Tracey Cunningham. “Face-framing highlights correct that.” Next time, rinse the dye from the front pieces first after a few minutes. You’ve been the same shade of blonde since you were 16 “Skin gets more sallow as you age, and paleblonde hair exacerbates that,” says James. Switch to a warm blonde with “golden”, “honey” or “caramel” in its name. You redo your entire dye job whenever your roots show This can result in breakage, so squeeze the dye along just your roots and smudge it in with the brush from the box. If you don’t know your colour, “err lighter,” recommends James. “It’s easier to fix.”

When did shampoo get so tricky? Co-washing, pre-washing, not washing at all – experts decode the best new strategies for your hair. Before you buy, read this to find the technique for you and your tresses!


nce upon a time, a shampoo was simply a shampoo. Its purpose was straightforward, and using it was pretty simple: lather, rinse, repeat if necessary – done! Today, we can’t stop talking about shampoo. Experts consider the humble hair cleanser to be the top dog of your styling regimen, with a unique formula and technique for every hair type. “Your shampoo choice really dictates [how good] your end style [will look],” says celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger. “Bad shampoo can leave your hair limp without any styling power.” Other pros, like hairstylist Michael Gordon, assert that if you have the right formula, you can actually cut a lot of styling products out of your life. This all sounds very promising and enticing. But how to know which techniques and tools will work for you? Your road map starts here.

First, know your terms Co-wash Co-washing (also known as washing with conditioner) became popular about 20 years ago in the natural-hair community. If you have curly, kinky or colour-processed hair, all of which are inherently fragile and dry, it’s worth a try. Here’s why: conditioners have small amounts of cleansing agents – significantly less than traditional


products shampoo savvy

shampoo, but still enough to clean the hair while preserving its natural oils. “Don’t be put off by the lack of lather, and remember to fully work the conditioner into the scalp with your fingers,” advises hairstylist Ana Paula Cota. “The motion of your wet hands is what really gets the hair clean,” Ana explains. Rinse, and follow with the same conditioner, like [1] Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner (R585), from the midshaft of the hair down to the ends. You can co-wash instead of shampooing daily – or if that leaves your hair feeling less clean than you’d like, try alternating co-washing with traditional shampoo.

Pre-wash Pre-washing means applying a treatment before shampooing to help cut down on styling time later. If your goal is volume, we recommend a reverse-wash system, like [2] TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre-Wash Conditioner (R96.99), designed to soften your hair without weighing it down. If extra detangling is what you need – or if your hair is super damaged – try a preshampoo mask with nourishing coconut or olive oil. Simply apply to dry hair 20 minutes before you shower, then shampoo with a formula that won’t weigh down your locks.

Spot wash Spot-washing, in which you shampoo only one area of your hair that needs to be degreased, has been a go-to technique for women with fringes for years. Now women are zeroing in on the hairline or crown in order to extend a blowdry. Simply section the area that needs attention from the rest of your hair, carefully shampoo in the sink, and restyle.

But which shampoo works for my hair?

one reason, explains Anabel Kingsley, a trichologist for Philip Kingsley, is that “weak points form along the hair shaft where it twists or curls”. Not surprisingly, shampooing too frequently, especially with products that contain lathering agents like sulphates, should be avoided. Instead, opt for gentler formulas created especially for curly hair. TRY [3] Redken Curvaceous High Foam Lightweight Cleanser (R346.62).



If your hair is fine Wash it every day. “People with fine hair have more oil glands on their scalp, so it easily becomes infuriatingly limp at the roots,” says Anabel. Or, as Sally puts it, “like a string on your head.” Anabel suggests shopping for a shampoo specifically made for fine hair, like [4] label.m Thickening Shampoo (R284). As a rule, avoid heavy silicones (anything on the label that ends with ‘-cone’, like dimethicone).



If your hair is colour-treated Shampoo gently and less often. A colourprotecting shampoo, like [5] Nak Aromas Colour Shampoo For Coloured Hair (R320), is the place to start; add a colour-depositing formula or gloss a few times a month to temporarily brighten the colour. Minimising heat exposure, with both the water temperature and styling tools, also helps to extend the life of your colour. But washing with cold water – a frequent suggestion for colour-treated hair – is unnecessary, according to celebrity colourist and salon owner Rita Hazan. “It’s unrealistic to take cold showers – I’m not doing it! And neither should you,” she says.



If you have dandruff

If your hair is curly or kinky Treat it delicately. Curls might look hearty, but they are the most fragile hair type;

Use a shampoo with pyrithione zinc, coal tar extract or piroctone olamine which targets the specific yeast that causes flakes and itchiness. TRY [6] Head & Shoulders Cool Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (R79.95).

Are you washing incorrectly? Some DOs and DON’Ts DON’T worry about the ‘repeat’ step. If you shampoo your hair daily, once is enough. You don’t need a double shampoo unless you’re shampooing less frequently – say, once a week – or have a lot of styling products building up in your hair.

DO concentrate your shampoo on your scalp – that’s what needs a good cleaning. The rest of the hair gets clean enough during the rinse process. And while you’re at it, avoid piling your hair on top of your head; that just creates masses of tangles.

DON’T fret if your shampoo doesn’t lather much or your hair feels limp after washing. You probably have mineral-rich hard water. Install a showerhead filter, or do a vinegar rinse between shampooing and conditioning your locks.

DO go easy with the towel: wrapping your wet hair into a turban might look glamorous, but it’s the fastest route to frizz. Instead, gently squeeze the water out of your hair with an old T-shirt; the smooth fibres won’t frazzle your strands. 93

Understanding the ‘free’s on your bottle Gluten-free These are ideal for the 1% of the population with celiac disease. (Some shampoos with gluten can cause a reaction.) TRY [1] OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo (R169.95).

Paraben-free This assures that the formula is using an alternative, less-controversial preservative. (Once linked to breast cancer, parabens are now deemed safe.) TRY [2] Davines Minu Shampoo (R250).

Sulphate-free “Shampoo’s main ingredient is an exceptionally harsh detergent,” says Michael. So ‘sulphate-free’ means the formula doesn’t contain the lathering and cleansing agent found in most shampoos. “Sulphates can dry out your scalp, create dandruff and pollute the water system,” agrees backstage and editorial hairstylist Orlando Pita, who also avoids traditional sulphates in his shampoo line. TRY [3] Marc Anthony Volumizing Collagen Bamboo Shampoo (R119.95).


Shampoo diaries How often do you wash? “I have long, thin hair that looks oily and greasy by the end of the day. I’ll try anything to make it look clean, so I wash daily, alternating between a detox shampoo that’s meant for weekly use – and dishwashing liquid. It makes my hair surprisingly soft!” – Amanda, 25





“Once a week. I’ve got a head full of long, coarse, frizzy curls that can take up to 45 minutes to detangle in the shower. I delay because the thought of washing my hair is pretty daunting. The water helps give my hair more slip and, while it’s wet, I finger-comb it, section by section. This also helps reactivate the softening effects of the conditioner. At times, I may use more oils and rich creams, then I up my wash to twice a week if I notice extra product build-up.” – Lyndsay, 27

“I wash my colour-treated hair two or three times a week, and use lots of dry shampoo in between. When I do shampoo, I only do the crown – never the rest – and I rotate three or four hydrating shampoos. I rarely condition. Occasionally I’ll apply hair oil to my ends. I sometimes go ombré, and my light parts get tangled!” – Sheila, 39 “I haven’t shampooed my tresses in over a year! My hair is naturally insanely dry, plus it’s coloured to within an inch of its life, and I find shampoo even more drying. Instead, I co-wash once a week and follow with a traditional conditioner. It really feels like cowashing cleanses my hair without stripping out its moisture. As an added plus, it’s all very conditioning.” – Tia, 40 FOR THE DOS AND DON’TS OF DRY SHAMPOO, VISIT GLAMOUR.CO.ZA.

Characterised by its ‘pudding bowl’ shape, it is usually sleek, but instead of turning all of the ends in, textured ends makes it modern. “A wig is a great way to make over my style instantly,” explains model Gina. To start, put a stocking over your own hair. “Pin your wig so that it doesn’t move,” recommends hair and makeup artist Bernice Dodd. “Flatiron the fringe forward (a thin iron works best), then scrunch in some texturiser for definition,” she adds.

Punk shave When model Amy went for this shave, she looked to Rihanna for inspiration. “It makes my look more interesting and I can change it up,” she says. To get height, hair and makeup stylist Sebastine Pepler towel-dried Amy’s hair before adding volumising mousse. Taking small sections, she tonged the longer pieces with a wide-barrel tong, working from the front to the back. “I gently separated the curls with my fingers, then teased for height,” Sebastine says. Hold in place with hairspray. [1] Schwarzkopf Osis+ Freeze Strong Hold Hairspray R265 [2] L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Crème de Mousse R89.95 [3] BaByliss Nano Curling Tong R284

Volumised waves “With a short cut, you already look striking – even before you’ve done anything to your hair,” explains our model Michelle. To enhance her natural curls, Bernice prepped the hair with mousse: “Used on wet hair, mousse holds your style. On dry, it creates texture.” Spritz your hair with hairspray as you blast curls with a diffuser to keep it in place,” explains Bernice. Finally, add a little wax to build shape.

Teased ’Fro “My hair suffered when I continually relaxed it and wore weaves,” explains Gina, “so I decided to embrace my natural coils.” To care for them, Gina uses coconut or castor oil after washing. “Then, to protect my hair from heat, I wrap sections around flexi rods to create defined curls. Once they’re dry, I separate them with my fingers.” To enhance her texture, Bernice added a conditioning cream for shine.



Textured bob “I adore wigs for their convenience,” explains model Bianca. “They are always prepped and ready to go – meaning I don’t need to fuss!” Advises Sebastine, “Never use heat-stylers on a synthetic wig like this one, and keep your hair products to a minimum. Here, I used pomade and my fingertips to create texture.” Remember that the better you care for your wig, the longer it will last. “A wig stand is your best investment to keep its shape,” she says.
