We think that creating a gorgeous hairstyle shouldn’t tie you up in knots. But that said, it’s perfectly okay to include a few in your ‘do. Which is why we turned to Joico Advisor, Kasia Milon, for some of the hottest new headgear creations coming down the pike—looks that require nothing more than a simple tie or scarf, plus a few great styling products to keep it all in place. Here, the easy how-to’s that will make you leader of the band…
Flower Power: A tiny, bloom-bedecked headband turns a humble hair accessory into something beautiful and bohemian with this wavy take on the Sixties. Simply work a few dabs of JoiLotion Sculpting Lotion into slightly-damp locks; twist into two French braids; and allow to air dry until set. Then, unwind the braids (finger combing to release texture); wrap the band around your forehead; and spritz with Design Works Shaping Spray for hold and shine.
Pony Up: This sexy, edgy take on a ponytail elevates a classic style in seconds. Start by spraying Joico’s Instant Refresh into roots for volume (avoiding hot tools, which cancel out the messy dimension you’ve just created); then gather hair into a high pony, spritzing loose hair with Power Spray for extra texture and holding power. The final flourish? A simple black ribbon tied into a bow around the base of the ponytail.
Band Stand: The fringe takes a step forward with this Eighties-inspired rocker chic that stars sleek tresses and the most basic of hair accessories. For the prep, work a bit of K-PAK Color Therapy Restorative Oil into damp strands and blow-dry until smooth and straight, parting hair to the side. Next, clip bangs out of the way while you slip a wide headband directly over the forehead. The final set: Joico’s new IronClad Thermal Protectant Spray (due to hit the market in September); a few passes with a flat iron for extra sleekness; then unclip those bangs and allow them to hang out for the night.
