And remember, it isn't just the products you use that will smooth things down up there. Don't forget to blast hair with cool water at the end of your shower (this seals hair cuticles), and the same goes for blow-drying — give your strands a once over on the cool setting to set and relax the hair. You also want to angle the hairdryer downwards at all times, and use a hydrating hair mask once a week. Click through to shop our favourite anti-frizz hair serums.
The forever stylish Brit It Girl is known for her glowing complexion and effortlessly styled beach waves, but it was all about the texture in her tousled up 'do. To try out her look at home start by spraying damp hair with Toni and Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray ($15.99), scrunching your hair as you blow dry. Once dry, section of your front fringe area and finger brush your hair into a ponytail securing with an elastic. Use bobby pins to loosely style your fringe strands and then twist your hair around the base of the ponytail into a loose bun and secure with pins. Set with a spritz of Morrocan Oil Glimmer Shine Spray ($34.50). To fnish of Sienna's look try adding well-lined lids with a flick of liquid eyeliner like Nars Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates ($44).
With the humidity on the rise outside of her Spring 2014 show, the look at Rachel Zoe was more than appropriate. "We're going on safari," Antonio Corral Calero, artistic director for Moroccanoil, said with a laugh. And the braid he created for the look? Safari glamping gone gorgeous. A huge, fuzzy plait with loads of texture was the centerpiece of the look.
But the makeup was just as gorgeous. Charlotte Tilbury, using Maybelline, wanted the girls to look gorgeously sun-kissed. She swept bronzer down the nose, under the cheekbones, and across the forehead to achieve that gorgeously golden look. "It's about embracing your inner golden goddess," she quipped. To create the pretty pink pout, Tilbury mixed three different pinks together and lightly patted the colour on the lips with her fingers. Nude manicures completed the look.
"I'm flashing back to when I first met Narciso at Calvin [Klein] in the early '90s, and we used to joke that every season we had to come up new ways to do nothing," said makeup artist Dick Page of the look at Narciso Rodriguez's Spring 2014 show. To achieve a no-makeup facade, Page mixed multiple mediums. For cheeks, he created a custom shade with Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Metalrose and Hellebore (launching this Spring). He also blended out the eyeliner with moisturiser and diluted brown mascara with clear gel to achieve a more transparent feeling.
The hair was meant to mimic a second-day blow dry with very little curl or wave. Lead hairstylist Paul Hanlon finished it with Moroccanoil Treatment Light ($55) to give a piecey feel (but not grunge). Deborah Lippmann used only one coat of Pretty Young Thing Nail Colour for a subtle hue, followed by a matte topcoat to take away any prettiness.
Of the look at Badgley Mischka's Spring 2014 show, lead stylist Peter Gray for Moroccanoil said, "Well, the designers kept talking about Jacque Henri Lartigue's seaside photography and the city of Atlantis, so we all agreed on mermaids. "Gray set the models' hair in pin curls before brushing them out and twisting them into a low roll.
The secret to keeping the 'do in place? A tiny braid at the nape of the neck was used to anchor the pins. "We're only using four to five pins in each of the girls' hair!" Gray quipped. Tom Pecheux for Mac Cosmetics focused on watery blues and coral lips for the makeup look. "Coral is a great colour for Spring," he said. "It's fun, it's friendly, and it looks good on everyone." Even the nails, by manicure leading lady Deborah Lippmann, kept with the mermaid theme. Two coats of Blue Orchid were topped with one coat of La Vie En Rose (both out Spring 2014), creating an iridescent manicure that was reminiscent of fish scales.
Vibrant shots of red were seen throughout the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2014 collection, and the theme also followed through to the beauty look. Val Garland for Mac Cosmetics created the chic makeup style that featured clean skin with a hint of highlight on the cheeks. The focal point was the cherry-stained lip. Hairstylist Bob Recine for Moroccanoil made sure the face was on full display with his sleek, half-wet/half-dry hairstyle. "This gives the hair a fresh, clean feeling, much like the clothes," he said.
The nails, by Katie Hughes of Butter London, also had a pop of red. "I was inspired by the sheer elegance of the collection," she said. She opted for Pink Ribbon ($22), a sheer pink, on the nails and Pillar Box Red ($22), a bright red, on the toes to pop against the shoes coming down the runway.
To finish the look, she set everything with Elnett Strong Hold Hairspray like Elnett Extreme Hold Hairspray ($9.99). "Once the hair was all dry I unclipped the hair and gently brushed out the bottom of the hair for a soft waved look and sprayed with hair spray again." Roszak added a modern element to the look with pins. "With long black bobby pins, I created a slightly staggered look around the head, allowing the style to stay flat to the head, and also [created] a modern accessory with exposed bobby pins." She gave the hair one last does of shine with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray ($34.50) all over her head. Lily finished the look with flirty lashes and a bold red lipstick that matched her dress.
