8 Handluggage essentials

Posted on 21st August 2015 by PROinsider

Being swept away to a hot, exotic country is definitely a perk of working in the hair and beauty industry. But before you pack your flip-flops, follow our tips to mastering the hand luggage limit and keeping your model cool…

Hand luggage essentials...

How to use them...

Poolside plait

A plait is definitely the prettiest way to pin up, and with fishtail, Dutch and lace versions of the style appearing everywhere this summer; it’s the easiest way to transform your client to catwalk-ready. Take inspiration from Millie Mackintosh and create a halo braid with some added edge. Work in Innova Texture Volumising Powder to dry hair, to give limp locks a volume boost. Gently backcomb and braid the hair and using the end of the Protip Dress Out Comb, pick out sections of the braid for a messy chic finish.

Travel tales

It’s a classic cool-down look, and now ponies are getting pimped just like Beyonce’s skyscraper ponytale. Work Wella’s EIMI Pearl Styler into dry hair for ultimate shine power and using a BaByliss PRO 25mm Curling Tong create loose tousles. Smooth the hair up into a high (super-high) ponytail and secure into place using a clear elastic band. Finish with a spirtz of Ion Super Hold Hairspray.

Cool-down crop

The most effective way to keep the hair off your neck in the heat is to cut it all off! Thanks to celebs like Lily Collins, the pixie crop is the trending chop this season. The key to mastering this style is to ensure it has potential for versatility; from a 1920s, sleeked down wet-look using Osis Gelastic, to a volume-packed, textured edgy, rock-chick finish with the help of Osmo Shaper Maker.

Heatproof Hun

The new ‘it’ word in hair, hun (a merge of half down hair and bun) is a great way to take the weight out of hair in the heat, to let those tresses flow. JLo nails the look by wearing the bun at the top of the head, rather than the nape of the neck to avoid looking like an extra in an American 90’s teen film. Divide the sections in two halves, ensuring that you allocate more hair to the bun section. Tie the top section into a ponytail on top of the head and using the Wildest Dream Bun Roll Blonde, thread the ponytail through the centre and backcomb for volume. Wrap the hair around the hair bun and pin to secure. Finish by straightening the rest of the hair with these handy Diva Mini Travel Stylers Rubberised Pink.
