weekend hair: FUN FAUX FRINGE

Created at Prada’s S/S 2013 show, it’s elegant at the back, chic at the front ~ and perfect if you’ve been thinking about getting a fringe, {try before you cut}!
Here’s the how-to-do’s:
1. Start by applying a volumiser to slightly damp hair to give it some body or volume.
The team at Prada used Redken’s Rootful 07. 
2. Blow-dry your hair roughly: do this by using your hands to comb through your hair in slight zigzag motions. 
3. This look has slightly lifted roots and to get this, take some Redken Quick Tease 15 backcombing spray and apply it all over your hair. Make sure you pay more attention to the roots of your hair.

4. Create some lift in the roots of your hair by combing it upwards using your hands. This will look as if you’re pulling your hair.

5. Smooth hair with a boar-bristle brush but still keep your roots slightly teased or lifted.

6. Gather your hair right above the nape and twist is to create a French twist. Instead of hiding the ends and creating a bun, make it go over the crown of your head down to your forehead giving you a nice fringe.

7.  Using bobby pins, secure your twist.

8. Now it’s time to work on your new fringe. Have a play and arrange hair to make it either a full fringe, or a wispy one. Finsih by using a super strength hairspray, such as Redken Forceful 23, to hold it in place.
