A TYPICAL DAY WITH ANTHONY NADER IN COLLABORATION WITH DYSON. Seen GRAZIA

The Insiders x Anthony Nader

As we take you inside Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia ’18, our first stylish stop is to hair expert Anthony Nader…

For Anthony Nader, fashion is intrinsic. The Editorial Hair Director and Celebrity Stylist digests fashion daily; from a near-unhealthy obsession with magazines (he has quite the collection) to blow-drying the manes of the models inside those very pages (and cutting a stylish figure himself), Nader’s sensibilities lie solely with fashion. So as the biggest week in Australian fashion fast approaches, we head to Surry Hills to see what the hair expert gets up to in the lead up to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2018. From his local brew to his trend forecast for MBFWA, we glean a glimpse into Anthony Nader’s fashionable life with Dyson Supersonic.

5 GOOD REASONS TO WEAR BRAIDS OFTEN. Anthony’s latest shoot and quotes seen GRITTY PRETTY

What is it with women and braids?

We’ve never met a braid we didn’t like, but they aren’t exactly an everyday style after your teens – unless you’re Beyoncé. (This needs to change, but more on that later.)

Braids are a lot like romantic comedies. They seem complicated, but most abide by the same format. If you know how to braid, the possibilities are endless. We could look at a milkmaid or boxer braid over and over and never tire and an intricate plot always incites more praise.

Seems to us the only reason why we don’t wear our hair this way more often is because there is no real occasion that calls for it. So we’ve enlisted award-winning hair stylist, Anthony Nader, to come up with five styles and tell us exactly where, when and how you can bring them out

What would you call this braid?

A relaxed or ‘undone’ fish tail braid.

Where would you wear this?

Any event where the dress code is smart casual or a photo of you might end up on Instagram.

Top tips for this style?

Slick hair tight into a low pony just below your crown to start the fishtail braid. When you get to the end, secure with a plastic tie and pull the braid apart gently so it appears soft and ethereal.

What would you call this braid?

Bohemian braids.

Where could you wear it?

A weekend get-together, music or arts festival or when you’re on holiday. This one’s as low maintenance as they come.

Top tips for this style?

The more haphazard and random in size your plaits, the more natural it will look. For this shoot, I braided approximately 15 different sized braids throughout the model’s hair. Another tip is to keep braids tight and clean so they look intentional so it doesn’t vibe too Bob Marley-esque.

What would you call this style?

Bubble braids.

Where could you wear this braid?

To a bridal shower, milestone birthday party or a more laid-back wedding.

Top tips for this style?

There is no need to braid all the way down to the ends for this style, introduce your ribbon anywhere in the braid and wrap it around the end of each section and tie in a knot. The style doesn’t need to be symmetrical, but it should feel and look balanced.

What would you call this braid?

Classic fishtail braid.

Where could you wear this?

Try this on a Monday when you want to make more of an effort, or bring it out on a casual Friday at work. It’s also good for date nights and basically anytime you want to present yourself as someone who’s got life sorted.

Top tips for this style?

Brush the pony smooth before you start. Use a shine spray for extra glam before and/or after you start the fishtail braid.

What would you call this braid?

Lemonade Braid (and yes, you can thank Beyoncé for this one).

Where would a woman wear this?

Take this style to a concert or themed-party, whenever you’re feeling a little bit extra.

Top tips for this style?

Can I tell you that I cheated on this look? I actually went to a wig shop and got synthetic hair pieces (cheap as chips!) and plated about ten of them the night before so I could glue them on with a special hair glue also from the wig shop. I slicked the hair back first into a low bun first, then applied the glue in dots along the braid and positioned them in the curved shape. You can create whatever shape you wish. After we shot this image, I peeled off the braids without a trace of glue in sight and brushed out the models hair without one tear from her! It took me 20 minutes max to put together.

“The model needs 100 percent confidence in you when they are sitting in your hot seat, so handle them with care and be the pro that you set out to be. Being professional and knowing your game will ensure you achieve the best results.”

“In the weeks leading up to the season, models need to take a seat in the hairdressers chair and have a few moisturising treatments with steam applied. It works wonders and remember that we (hairdressers) need a healthy foundation to work with for best results.”

“It really doesn’t matter what hair the model turns up with. If the model loved those beautiful long hair extensions in the previous show and the hair director on the next show doesn’t have the vision for that kind of hair, out they come. More often than not, at this stage the model is crying, but we do our best to calm her down and treat her like a princess.”

“Dont go for a colour change unless your agent has agreed first. In my (cough, cough) many years of doing shows around the globe, I’ve seen girls turn up with a new colour thinking they would be ‘experimental’ and as a result they haven’t worked that season due to them playing hairdressers at home.”

“Celebrity models are just like you and I at the end of the day, so don’t go gaga over them. You will not only look like the new kid on the block, but you probably won’t be asked to work on more shows in the country you are in or want to work in as word really does get around.”

How to: Ralph Lauren Polo polished beach hair

Anthony Nader works backstage on the RALPH LAUREN POLO show at NYFW FAll 2014 as seen in elle.com.au.

Anthony Nader gives us the step-by-step to get cool-girl hair.

Straight from the runway at NYFW, cialis Sydney’s own Anthony Nader, pills owner of RAW Salon, assisted Redken’s Creative Consultant, Guido Palau at yesterday’s Ralph Lauren Polo show, creating laid back glossy lengths for the AW14 collection. ELLE got the exclusive on how to achieve the look.

“It’s a more polished beach hair that is refined and doesn’t look crunchy or brittle.” Nader says.

1. On damp hair, spray a texturizing spray all over and rough dry with hands to promote airiness. Guido used Redken’s Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two-Day Extender ($30.95, 1300 650 170)

2. Grab an extra-large hot tong and wrap 5 cm size sections around the barrel from mid lengths and ends.

3. Be sure that you don’t make the wave too defined, as you want a more tousled and relaxed feel.

4. If time permits, gather your hair to just below the crown area and twist the tail loosely and pop a few pins in to secure the hair.

5. Keep the bun in until you are ready to leave for the day to set the movement. Then brush lightly for that floaty airiness.
