Whether it’s party season, you just have lots to celebrate, or you’re after some special occasion inspo – make sure your “desk-to-drinks” beauty routine is en pointe. And who better to ask for expert tips than hairstylist to the stars, Dario Cotroneo? Here are his best tips for celeb-worthy hair that will take you from the office to the dancefloor with ease.
Braids and plaits hide a multitude of sins. You can disguise anything from regrowth to split ends with a cute braided updo. Spritz hair with dry shampoo, braid your fringe loosely and secure with bobby pins to the side of the scalp.
Everyone wants a professional blowout but sometimes time doesn’t allow for that. Blow-dry and straighten your locks in the morning before work and tie a ponytail at the base of the neck. Twist the ponytail into a tight bun and secure with bobby pins and hairspray. When you’re ready to head out later on, take the bun out and run your fingers through your hair for a natural, breezy wave. Set with hairspray.
The perfect ‘do to hide a stressful work (or hair) day. Spray hair liberally with dry shampoo and pull back your fringe to the middle of your hair. Securing with pins, push the section forward to create a small quiff and retro rockabilly cuteness in a flash.
