Trends can be fleeting, but you can always count on the experts at John Frieda to help you achieve timeless yet of-the-moment style with effortless tricks and accessible product recommendations.
The master stylist behind the iconic looks of A-listers like Gisele, Ellen Pompeo and Fergie, John Frieda International Creative Consultant Harry Josh tells Cosmopolitan magazine in its May issue (on stands now) how to achieve the season’s must-have style no matter what your hair type.
Got Fine Hair?
THE GOAL: A natural look that adds volume and movement every time you turn your head.
THE TRICK: Focus on the lower part of strands and stop stressing about all-over waves.
HOW TO: Blow dry the top portion of hair from cheekbones up. Leave the bottom of your hair slightly damp and coil it into a tight bun. Blast the bun with a blow-dryer until its dry. Mist with a flexible hair spray like John Frieda Luxurious Volume All-Out Hold Hair Spray, $6.50.
Got Medium Hair?
THE GOAL: Sleek spirals that twist away from your face to show off your features without crowding them out.
THE TRICK: Hold the curling iron vertically as you twist it clockwise to create coils that fold into your natural texture.
HOW TO: Apply a smoothing spray all over to minimize frizz and protect from heat styling (try the new John Frieda Frizz-Ease Heat Defeat, $6.50) then blow dry. Loosely wrap 1-inch sections around a medium-barrel iron starting at chin level (remember to hold the iron vertically as you twist). Then gently rake fingers through hair and shake out so it settles into piece-y waves.
Got Thick Hair?
THE GOAL: Keep curls weightless and airy to avoid looking droopy or heavy.
THE TRICK: Create diffused waves by brushing them out to add lift and life.
HOW TO: Apply an anti-frizz formula (Josh recommends a drop of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal Serum, $10) and dry with a diffuser, then curl random sections with a large-barrel iron. Leave the ends out so they bend in different directions and create bounce. Finally, flip hair over and lightly brush out to create subtle waves.
