GIRLS WITH SHORT HAIR SHOULD AVOID THIS COLOUR TREND

Everywhere we look, someone is cutting their hair. Kendall Jenner parted with her raven locks, Bella Hadid is now the proud owner of a sleek French-girl bob, even Kate Hudson has taken it to the next level with her fresh buzz-cut—and she looks amazing to say the least. If the above examples are anything to go by, cutting your hair is the best beauty update you can undertake this spring.

Most long-haired girls would agree though, that transitioning from long to short is easier said than done (especially if you’ve had long hair for years—you can feel almost naked without it). All of a sudden, your go-to colour and styling techniques are redundant, and you’re left mystified when it comes to consulting your stylist. So to save the confusion (and the guesswork), we enlisted the help of Anthony Nader of Raw. Working between Australia and New York, Nader has a well-rounded (and global) take on what works for short styles, plus five product recommendations that are sure to change your life for the better.

Byrdie Australia: What is the most requested short hair colours your clients ask for?

Anthony Nader: I find girls with shorter lengths want to push their hair to the lighter end of the spectrum. This is never a problem, but only if their strands are in tip-top condition. The lighter the hair, the more impact it has against your complexion and bone structure, which is fantastic for highlighting the features. There’s nothing more stunning than a beautiful blonde base—your skin will appear luminous and your cheek bones will pop.

B: What is the most requested cut when a client decides to go short? 

AN: Most of my clients want soft and feminine styles. In my books, this works for any person (or season) as not everyone can carry off a hard-edged short crop. Most people request a haircut that hugs the hairline with interior texture. This style is not only fun to create different hair shapes, but it’s also on-tend. Basically, the more texture your hairdresser can cut in, the more your style can move around. It also makes it easy to change it up using different hair products, meaning you’re always one step ahead of the trend.

B: What are the most flattering colour trends for shorter styles?

AN: If you want low maintenance, don’t venture more than two or three shades from your natural base as the upkeep will hurt your purse. Also, you need to think about your makeup if you do go down this track. You might find it’s best to swap out your existing shades and start fresh to match your new colour.

Another great look for shorter hair is to lighten the mid lengths and ends a bit. This is fun as it gives your short hair more dimension and texture, whereas without, your hair length might look solid and round. Even if the texture is there, a solid colour can hide it from everyone, even you.

If you’re afraid of colour, ask your hair colourist to weave in some baby lights on the top area of your head. This will create a very natural halo effect, and it might encourage you to be more adventurous next time.

B: What colour trends should shorter lengths avoid?

AN: Any shade that is too dark needs to be seriously thought about before it’s too late (and painted all through your hair). Dark colour on the hairline and scalp is a dead giveaway that you’ve had a dodgy colour job. By all means, have your fun on the mid-lengths and ends with the colour palette you and your hair colourist have chosen, but always think about how you’re going to manage it between salon visits.

B: What short-hair colour trends will be everywhere this summer? 

AN: I’m really into soft and muted colours—nothing plastic or shiny-looking. French woman are known for having that “I haven’t been to the salon, I don’t know what you’re talking about” vibe. I love that they like their colour and cut to look like it’s worn in—it’s almost secretive in a way. This summer, the colour trend will have more of a French, cool-girl vibe, rather than squeaky clean with bells attached. It will be soft, lived-in, and almost washed out, in a way.

WHY “HAIR HUGGING” IS THIS SEASON’S BIGGEST BEAUTY TREND

Renowned hair stylist Anthony Nader says length is irrelevant.

 

Alexa Chung

 

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.

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO STYLING THIS SEASON’S HOTTEST HAIR TRENDS

SYDNEY SALON SUPPLIES - MTV STYLE ONLINE - MARCH 2017

 

We’re well and truly in the thick of 2017 now, and in an attempt to follow through with your ‘new year, new me’ resolutions of a very hazy NYE, you’ve decided to take the plunge and try and new hairstyle.

You’ve committed to a long bob, a pixie cut or an ~edgy~ dye job and leave the salon feeling (and looking) like a million bucks.

…Then you try and recreate said style one morning in a rush before work and it’s a FKN DISASTER.

 

 

Having personally experienced the nightmare that is post-salon hair styling, we’ve reached out to award-winning stylist Anthony Nader of RAW salon to explain exactly how to nail this season’s hottest hair trends so you ALWAYS look like you’ve just been professionally washed, dryed and styled.

You are very welcome.

The Long Bob

“A MUST for this textured cool vibe is to make sure your shampoo and conditioner isn’t too heavy, as this will weigh down your strands,” Anthony explains.
“At the salon, make sure you ask your hairstylist for some shorter layers through the interior as this will help the longevity of the look.”

“Always use sea salt spray to give your strands more oomph, and don’t be precious about blow-drying but do attach a diffuser to encourage natural movement.”

“If you don’t have time to blow-dry, try scrunch-drying with your hands.”

Long & Luscious

“Invest in a nourishing shampoo and conditioner like Oribe Gold Lust Repair to make you look and feel like a rock star, then soak some R+Co Pomade Aircraft Mousse into the mid-lengths and ends before blow-drying,” says Anthony.
“For a smoother look, blow-dry finer sections with a 100% boar bristle brush.”

“After blow-drying your mane, hit the cool shot button and work in circular movements around your head to lock down the hair cuticle and impart sheen.”

BONUS TIP: “As much as you love playing with your hair, try to do this less for your lush to last the duration.”

Short & Cropped

“If you’ve gone for a style that’s longer on top, make your strands less puffy by using a water-soluble wax like R+Co Continental Gloss Wax or a dry clay on 80% dry hair to keep your shape in control and less Marge Simpson.”
“If you’re blow-drying your hair, don’t go too crazy with the heat as this will make your cool girl crop look like you’re off to the weekly bowling club raffle.”

Curly & Wild

“Let me start by saying here that when you own a hairstyle like Halle’s, you need to treat it like GOLD.”
“This hair type always needs moisture so get your hands on the David Mallett L’Hydration shampoo and conditioner because it’s filled with moisture and macadamia nut oil to enhance sheen.”

“After washing your hair, don’t ever rub your strands with a towel – just blot. This is far gentler on your hair, and your strands will thank you for it! If you can let your hair dry naturally, that’s even better – but if you have to blow-dry, set the heat to low.”

“For even more moisture, try to MUK Argan Oil Repair Mask on the days you just want to wash-and-go.”

Unnaturally Blonde

“Before you take the plunge to platinum, make sure you ask your hairstylist to use the Olaplex Treatment to safeguard any hair breakage and hit your shade without going brassy.”
“Don’t go over the top with styling products as this style will thrive on a ‘less is more’ vibe. To keep strands silky and supple, invest in the David Mallett Hair Serum (3-5 drops max – as it’s super concentrated and the shine factor is high)”
