With the festive season well underway, it’s important that our hair-game be as on point as possible. But with dry winter air, comes an onslaught of hair problems. One way to fix them: add texture!
Adding layering into your hair is one of the key ways to add dimension and texture, but that doesn’t have to be the only way. Adding texture to your hairstyle will give your hair bounce and dimension, and it makes your hair look more lived-in and effortless. Texture brings structure and movement to your everyday hairstyle, and is ideal for those who want to add life back into their hair without doing a huge makeover.
Hair stylist Janet Jackson shows us ways to create fabulous texture this winter season.
LOOK 1: SOFT TEXTURE
Your flat iron is not just for straightening hair, it’s actually a really great tool to add texture! Next time you’re curling your hair, try leaving out the ends.
- Grab sections (2-3) inches of your hair.
- First start in the middle of your hair strand, curl away from the face. Twist it once, slide down and let it go!
- Continue throughout entire head, curling away from your face.
BRAID FLAT IRON
This is the ultimate cool-girl look.
- Put your hair in a braid or twist.
- Braid/twist hair into small sections and then add bobby pins to end to hold it together.
- Use your flat iron and slide down the braid/twist a few times. Give the hair some time to cool before taking it out.
- Once it’s cool, then pull out the braid/twist, and use your fingers to comb through your hair.
This ‘do brings the drama.
- Grab small sections; twist the flat iron all the way around, then slide the flat iron all the way down the hair shaft.
- Rotate the direction that you slide your flat iron.
- Once you’re done, run your fingers/brush through your hair.
