Earlier this month saw highly sought after hair stylist Anthony Nader celebrate a milestone, with his flagship salon RAW Anthony Nader marking 20 years in business. The go-to hair man for the country’s top magazine and online publications (and yes, Grazia included) and beauty editors, who better to talk us through what is going on in hair in 2017…

Putting Nader on the spot while sitting in the salon chair, we got him tell us just what his number one hair look is for the year: “I’m into ‘hair hugging’ hair that sits around the skin. By that I mean edges that are quite dishevelled, soft – lazy hair that is worn in. A good example of this would be Alexa Chung, of course, she’s my go-to. The ends are clean and healthy but they have a nice dishevelled Parisian lived-in feel about it.

“I’m not into a certain length – I don’t think for this season you should be short or should be long, it’s all about that type of haircut and how you carry yourself.” To avoid a rigid, blunt finish, dry shampoo and texture sprays are your best friend for this look. Best to avoid products that give stiffer locks such as a gel or going OTT with the hair spray.

We take a look at the three products Nader actually uses to get the look.
