spring hair trends 2014

 1. Shiny Waves

 To get smooth, shiny waves like these, “you need a styling product that encourages the curl and holds the set,” says hairstylist Garren, who suggests mousse (we likeJohn Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Building Mousse). “It thickens the cuticles and alters the texture slightly, so hair responds better to heat.” Curl sections all over, then deconstruct them. “Use a wide-tooth comb to break curls into waves,” says hairstylist Morgan Willhite. “If you want softer curls, use a brush.”

2. Soft Framing Wave

 This is a soft face-framing wave that shouts casual chic with just the right amount of polish. Tip: Don’t over apply product or overuse the heated styler – it’ll look too “done”. Use a straightener to curl, by wrapping it round, once that builds in shine it will give that playful young finish.

 3. Random Waves

 5. Side-Swept Layered Bob

 Product Tip: Keep long locks in order with a brilliant Tangle Teezer Long & straightAchieve spring/summer ’14’s long and straight looks by blow-drying locks rather than straightening hair. Always opt for a centre parting for that model off-duty vibe.
