THE HAIRCUT YOU’LL BE OPTING FOR THIS SUMMER ACCORDING TO YOUR FACE SHAPE

1235429-1_og

 

Going in for a chop or change isn’t as simple as pointing to a picture and wishing your way to stardom status hair. In fact, your face shape is the true determinant when it comes to picking the perfect hairstyle. But what works best for your face shape? Vogue sought out to answer your every hair query from celebrity hair stylist, Anthony Nader, ahead of summer to ensure your next chop is your best one yet.

The tip? “Because of its symmetry and balance, the oval face shape is your ultimate goal to reaching when thinking about your new haircut,” says Nader.

Click through to discover the style you’ll be opting for the next time you hit the salon.

 

 

Round shaped face 

“Go for side swept bangs as this softens around the edges,” says Nader. “The angle of the bangs create more length in your face and provide a more oval shape – which is key.”

Longer hairstyles: 

“Long hair is totally a goer here, however, ensure to have a few chunky pieces cut in and around the face,” says Nader. “This opens up your tiny features, rather than closing them in and hiding them away.”

Shorter hairstyles: 

“Shorter hair shapes work a dream – and have fun experimenting with them,” says Nader. The trick? “Steer clear of the jawline otherwise the roundness of your face will only be enhanced,” he confirms.

 

 

Square shaped face 

“Bangs are all about illusion and this is key for square face shapes which tend to be wider at the cheeks and more angular around the jawline,” Nader shares. “A soft A-shape cut works best for women with square faces. The textured ends create angles, which help to soften the jawline and draw attention to your eyes.”

“No matter the length you choose to wear, from here on in, keep your hair strands with movement and not perfectly straight,” he says. And why? “Because having straight strands will only showcase your angular features.”

Nader recommends those with square faces to style a bend or a haphazard wave throughout hair to soften the overall look.

 

 

Oblong shaped face 

According to Nader, “Opting for a layered fringe and creating an A-shape look will help soften and balance your features. Actually, any strong angular features will be taken down a notch and softened,” he adds.

Nader’s tip? “Keep the length in your hair here and make sure you add some layers around the jawline as to allow the oblong shape to appear more symmetrical and balanced,” he says.

 

 

Heart shaped face 

“Heart shaped bangs for a heart shaped face as these will soften your look,” says Nader. “This means your bangs will be longer on the outer edges and slightly shorter in the middle.”

“The beauty about these bangs are that they are ideally overgrown and wont need a lot of upkeep due to the natural shape which blends beautifully with shorter, skimming layers around your face,” he shares.

He continues, “You can keep your hair length from medium to longer here, keeping your layers textured and not just one length.”

Why do heart shaped faces want to achieve textured layers? “Having one length will only emphasis your cheeks and small forehead,” Nader confirms.

 

 

Long face shape 

“Longer face shapes allow for more experimentation around the higher forehead region,” says Nader. “This is where you and your hairdresser can be more strategic about which parts of your face you wish to highlight or soften.”

For example, Nader tells us, “Creating a diagonal angle on your face will help keep people’s eyes focused on your centre features – like your eyes, and lips – rather than on your forehead or lower parts of your face.”

“This summer think 60s Woodstock era. Keep your tresses long and at one length.”

Alternatively, “Shake it up and make sure you create shorter triggers around your face, allowing for the overall style to blend through to the base line length.”

HOW TO MAKE YOUR HAIR HOLD A 24/7 CURL

If your hair will not hold a curl to save its life, join the club.

When done professionally, it doesn’t look half bad, but when you try to do it yourself, it doesn’t stand a chance. It’s frustrating. All you want is what you don’t have, waves! We get it, we see you, we know.

Here to share all his tips to stop your curls from dropping like it’s hot is award-winning hair stylist and owner of RAW salon, Anthony Nader. No longer will your hair be a timestamp for the night; the goal here is hair that looks the same from the first Instagram picture to the last. Sound good?

THE SECRET TO A GOOD CURL

Contrary to popular belief, more product does not a longer-lasting curl make. Nader says you don’t need to “layer” on several styling products as residue can have the opposite effect of weighing hair down. Moreover, it’s an indication that your product is filled with silicones. “Less is more,” he claims. Use only one or two targeted products. For longevity, apply a medium to long-hold hairspray or mousse. (We love: Bumble and Bumble Curl Conditioning Mousse, Kérastase Discipline Mousse Curl Idéal and Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong Finish.)

PRIME, PRIME, PRIME

If you’re not a fan of hairspray or mousse (something about the texture), Nader says “a curl-enhancing shampoo and conditioner is an excellent start to vamping up your limp hair strands”. (Try: Bumble and Bumble Curl Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Curl Custom Conditioner.) Any good hairstylist will tell you that styles that last start in the shower, and they’re right.

“I think the most beneficial product is a curl defining cream (or a sea salt spray) on damp hair. It all has to start when your strands are damp so the ingredients can more thoroughly absorb into each strand than when applying to dry hair,” he adds. (We love: ELEVEN Australia Keep My Curl Defining Cream and Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer)

STYLING TIPS

To create the incredible hair look featured in this post, Nader dampened the model’s hair and then misted it with sea salt spray (we love: Sachajuan Ocean Mist and Beach MUK Sea Salt Spray). Following this, he blow-dried hair with the diffuser head attachment to separate strands and encourage natural movement.

Ensuring the hair is heat protect, when dry, Nader started curling at random. “I just picked up chunky sections, from 3-7cm and wrapped them around a hot barrel tong,” he says. “You’ll notice some ends I left straight and others I added a slight curve. Some roots I curled and some I left out,” he adds. For longevity, finish with hair spray (or prep hair the night before with a curl-enhancing shampoo, conditioner or balm – see above: ‘prime, prime prime’).

RESTARTING A CURL

To “restart” second-day curls, Nader suggests quickly running the irons/tongs over some of the curls again. Then, “give the roots ignition by spraying them [with a styling powder or dry shampoo], massaging in and you’re good to go.” If waves are part of your uniform, “ask your hair stylist for some shorter layers to be cut through the interior of your next haircut, which will keep your curls lasting longer and not flopping,” he adds.

HOW 3 STYLE QUEENS ARE HARDENING THEIR JEWELLERY GAME THIS SUMMER

Make like Jesinta Franklin, Jaime Ridge and Yan Yan Chan’s and polish your bling game. 

It’s true that most fashion lovers dress to suit their mood, but jewellery flips that notion on its elegant head. More than any other fashion-related item, the fine jewellery you put on every day literally transfers feelings, memories and emotion, by its own kind of exquisite osmosis.

It’s indulgent – even fun – to have statement pieces for special occasions, but for the most part, the jewellery a woman chooses to wear over and over is an insight into herself. Is it minimalist and classic, layered and bohemian, perhaps cheeky and subversive? Look at the metal-wear she’s donned that day and odds are you’ll know the status of her current mood.

“Style is art. Style is self-expression. It’s inspiration…”

So says actor, singer and jewellery aficionado Zoe Kravitz, who is one of the six famous faces of Tiffany & Co.’s current HardWear collection campaign shot by high-fashion creative duo Inez and Vinoodh. (She is joined by fellow actors Janelle Monae and Elle Fanning, along with musician Annie Clark (aka St Vincent), supermodel and activist Cameron Russell, and Bolshoi and American Ballet principal dancer David Hallberg.)

Given the solidarity and can-do mood currently electrifying women on a global scale right now, it’s hardly surprising the mood for jewellery trends is hardening up. Fuss-free materials, flowing geometric shapes and layered metal on metal are having their moment in the modern trend sun. Likewise, the celebrity ambassadors for fine jewellery, a la Kravitz and St Vincent, are getting tough too.

Earlier this year, New York-born luxury jewellery brand Tiffany & Co. was on the front foot with this new movement when it released its street vibe HardWear collection fronted globally by pop juggernaut Lady Gaga.

Described as both elegantly subversive and embodying the spirit of the women of New York City, the strong solid gold and sterling silver range of rings, necklaces, bracelets and cuffs shows the 180-year-old Manhattan-based brand is clearly just as tapped into the style mood on the street as it is the tastes of elegant women on the Upper East Side.

“Elegance – I think it represents class,” says a tattooed, pixie-cropped Kravitz in the HardWear campaign video when asked what the name Tiffany & Co. means to her. “It’s an amazing thing to see a brand that can stick around for such a long time. It just becomes a classic.”

On the same theme, GRAZIA spoke to three Australian style mavens – Jesinta Franklin, Yan Yan Chan and Jaime Ridge, who are all friends of the Tiffany & Co. brand too and known for their fashion flair – about their favourite jewellery trends right now, style tips and how they’re hardening their bling game.

One of Australia’s best-known millennial media personalities, 26-year-old Franklin (nee Campbell) is a regular fixture on red carpets, fashion week FROWs, high-fashion parties and our television screens. The former Miss Universe Australia turned top model and social commentator is now just as well known for her polished-but-edgy personal style and bold fashion choices as she is the inspirational wellness philosophy and regime she champions on her website and Instagram.

HOW WOULD  YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN JEWELLERY STYLE? It’s quite minimal. I like pieces that I can wear every day and that pair back with any outfit. I like pieces that can be worn between day and night too.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE JEWELLERY LOOK RIGHT NOW?
I’m loving the Tiffany and Co. HardWear collection, I love its modern edge and twist on the more classic styles.

CAN YOU SHARE A GO-TO STYLING TIP YOU’VE ADOPTED RECENTLY? For me, it’s about choosing a statement piece and working around that. Whether it’s a watch, chunky bracelet or some earrings, don’t try to overdo it. Pick the piece you want to stand out and make sure everything else you wear compliments it.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES FROM THE NEW HARDWEAR COLLECTION? I love the Ball Hook Earrings in gold, the Ball Dangle Ring in gold, and the Ball Bypass Bracelet. Today I’ve changed it up a bit and am currently wearing the Wrap Bracelet in silver.

JAIME RIDGE 

While outdated Wikipedia describes her as New Zealand socialite, 24-year-old Jaime Ridge has stepped past her high-profile upbringing (her father is a famous sportsman, her mother a television personality) to forge a successful career as a model, stylist, producer, brand consultant and social media entity.

Her digital passion project Dillon Dot is a fashion, travel and lifestyle platform described by the street style star as “a place where collaborations and creative aspirations are brought to life.” Her aesthetic, which is obvious on her Instagram feed, could best be described as tailored maximalist.

HOW WOULD  YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN JEWELLERY STYLE? I’d say modern and clean, but I also love a touch of layering every now and then, especially at the moment – I’m going through a bit of a layering stage. It totally depends on the outfit and the occasion though. Sometimes I love paring it back and simply wearing my tennis bracelet and diamond band. Other times I love to layer necklaces, rock my cuffs, and I do love a clip-on earring now and then.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE JEWELLERY LOOK RIGHT NOW? I have two: the monogram trend and the mixing and match jewellery trend.

WHOSE JEWELLERY STYLE DO YOU LOVE? I don’t have a particular person’s jewellery look that I love; I’m much more inspired by the looks I see on the runway. Jewellery styling is such a treat. I just love to mix it up and keep it fun.

CAN YOU SHARE A GO-TO STYLING TIP YOU’VE ADOPTED RECENTLY? Of course, although I don’t know how unique it is. I use jewellery to complete an outfit, so whenever you put on a piece and question it, ask yourself, ‘Does this make total sense, or am I just adding it for the sake of it?’. I also wouldn’t hesitate to mix together different metals. It can look so right when gold and silver are paired together.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES FROM THE NEW HARDWEAR COLLECTION? Oh yes, I absolutely love my Tiffany & Co. collection. My favourite piece would be the Graduated Link Necklace – love! It’s just such an easy piece to dress up or down.

YAN YAN CHAN 

What began as a place to channel her visual creative ideas during her student years has become a wildly popular fashion and lifestyle blog for stylist, snapper and social media star Yan Yan Chan.

The 23-year-old Chinese-Australian is best known for her candid photography style mostly captured through 35mm film cameras, layered with mixed media like paint and collage. Her signature fashion style, well-known to her many Instagram followers is just as synonymous with her work: edgy, cool, cute street-luxe.

HOW WOULD  YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN JEWELLERY STYLE? I’m generally a sentimental person, so when it comes to jewellery I have my few special pieces that have either been gifted or passed down from my parents, which I wear every day and refuse to take off. You’ll see them close to my skin, in the shower, or in the ocean. I love mixing metals, wearing old with the new, the fine with the bold. Anything goes really, but I definitely have a less-is-more approach.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE JEWELLERY LOOK RIGHT NOW? I’m really drawn to the heirloom-inspired look and that ‘vintage Parisian market piece you would find on a Sunday afternoon’ type of vibe. I think people are [more conscious of] making pieces that can create an emotional attachment for the buyer and hold longevity via style and quality, instead of a ‘trend’ piece you’ll wear once and forget about. Those are the pieces you want to invest in and keep for a long time, and also wear over and over again.

WHOSE JEWELLERY STYLE DO YOU LOVE? Erin Wasson & Zoe Kravitz. They also both have sick taste in tattoos, which complement their jewellery.

CAN YOU SHARE A GO-TO STYLING TIP YOU’VE ADOPTED RECENTLY? I love layering earrings: double hooping or wearing the same pair of earrings on the one side. I really want to make pendants a thing as well, I started collecting them at the beginning of the year and kind of forgot about them. I have this little Tiffany & Co. gold crab pendant that I’ll loop in with my earrings from time to time. I should get some more.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES FROM THE NEW HARDWEAR COLLECTION? Hands down the Graduated Link Necklace. I keep this gem safe for special occasions, or on days when I’m not feeling my outfit. It’s perfect as a choker with an old tee, or worn a little longer with a crisp button-down shirt.

HACKS FOR MANAGING HAIR HUMIDITY THAT ACTUALLY WORK

Does it all really start in the shower? Anthony Nader sets us straight……………well kinda……as seen on Vogue Australia

 

Hacks for managing hair humidity that actually work

 

Looks like we got off on the wrong foot.

We’re officially in the transeasonal time of year where, although bare skin and beach visits are revving up, there’s one woe we just can’t sidestep: the dreaded combination of humidity and hair.

So before attempting to tackle romantic waves for a day at the races or straightening your strands ahead of a night out, Vogue spoke with celebrity hair stylist, Anthony Nader, for every humidity hack from his book of hair secrets to ensure your styled tresses aren’t compromised between seasons.

According to Nader, it all starts in the shower. “Reset your [shower] temperature down to the coolest you can withstand by running the water down your hair from roots to end. This closes your hair scales tight, maximising glossiness and manageability, leaving your hair shape polished,” Nader shares.

Once washed, another key step to prevent hair from fluffing and frizzing comes in the technique of drying. Nader says, “When drying off your hair, rather than rubbing your strands up and down, blot hair.”

“Rubbing your hair will only aggravate each hair strand to become fluffier, whereas if you blot, you’ll beat off the humidity ahead of the day,” he finishes.

As for styling, Nader says the key to avoiding humidity from wrecking your look lies in taking smaller sections when it comes to styling. “If you’re ironing your strands straight or even wanting to apply a wave, make sure you take finer sections, rather than thicker ones,” he shares.

“By taking smaller sections,” Nader continues, “It allows you to have more control of moulding your hair, combatting the day ahead with frizz-free hair.”

And when it comes to picking the perfect humidity-battling hairbrush? Nader swears by a 100 percent pure round bristle brush, sharing, “They really do smooth over the hair beautifully and I tend to bevel the ends as well so they look finished and not entirely dead-straight.”

So once you’ve styled your hair to perfection, it’s time to “seal the deal” Nader shares. “Anti-humidity sprays aren’t a gimmick and are far from it.”

“An anti-humidity spray is the holy grail of fighting frizz,” Nader shares. He continues, “Once you have finished styling your hair, give your entire head of hair a spray and you’ll be set for your day ahead.”

But when it comes to beating humidity long term, rather than just day-to-day, Nader confirms, “Moisture is the key for protecting your strands and building a barrier to seal out the natural elements, like humidity.”

To conclude, Nader tells us, “Your strands can’t get enough moisture over the next few months, so keep on hydrating and you’ll have top performing hair from the boardroom to drinks with the girls in the evening.”

On that note, we’ll both hydrate and cheers to that.

ANTHONY NADER REVEALS HIS TOP TIPS TO GET YOUR HAIR BACK TO LOOKING ITS BEST

Hey hair mid-life crisis………..we’re talkin to you! As seen on Dailymail.co.uk

As we age, our locks undergo many changes. For women, this is often related to stress and hormones; and while grey strands and hair loss might be the major concerns for women, loss of volume, dullness and dryness can be all signs of your hair’s unhealthy state.

Celebrity hairstylist Anthony Nader says his female clients often complain about grey and lacklustre hair that is dry and without volume.

‘They all come down to basically each hair strand becoming dehydrated and losing it’s plumpness which, in turn, becomes like an autumn leaf,’ he says.

 

Celebrity hairstylist and owner of RAW Salon in Sydney, Anthony Nader, says many women experience hair loss, dullness and dryness in their 30s and 40s.

Celebrity hairstylist and owner of RAW Salon in Sydney, Anthony Nader, says many women experience hair loss, dullness and dryness in their 30s and 40s.

 

‘You need to keep each hair strand plump and full of life so it performs.’

Mr Nader, who has worked alongside Kendall Jenner and Gisele Bündchen, says stress and hormones can affect a woman’s hair throughout her life.

‘Breastfeeding, menopause and stress can be huge contributors to losing your hair and dealing with calming down your over active hormones,’ he explains.

‘Hormones will wreak havoc and you need to be always one or even two long steps ahead of them.

‘While your body is going through any of these transitions that occur at some point in your life, this is where you need to take extra care in treating the cause of the problem,’ he adds.

 

Keeping your hair one colour will make it look flat and dull. Grey strands can be given new life with 'dimensional colour', says Mr Nader

‘Going grey can be dealt with by colouring to suit your complexion, the pregnancy thankfully is a time when you need to balance out the supplements and add more nutrients in your day to day diet.’

However, Mr Nader says menopause is particularly ”trying” for women.

‘I’ve seen this stage on many of my clients, and with the right shampoo and conditioning products and styling you can create the illusion of thicker hair and fool the crowd confidently,’ he says.

‘You need to take extra care of maintaining and treating your hair to always feel supple and beautiful.’

Mr Nader recommends getting six-weekly haircuts, avoiding too much bleach and adding layers.

TIPS FOR HAIR LOSS

* Sweep your hair over to the opposite side. It will give you more volume

* Use a dry shampoo to achieve more hair texture

* If you want extra height on the crown area, use a brush, not a comb

* Opt for a thickening shampoo and conditioner

Mr Nader regularly shares images on social media with celebrities like model Kate Upton

‘Layers are always a fabulous idea when you want and need to bring life back into your hair and especially around your face,’ he explains.

‘Go easy on the bleach and other heavy duty colour treatments as this can over time put stress on your poor hair strands.’

THE 4 HAIR COLOURS YOU’RE GOING TO SEE EVERYWHERE THIS SUMMER

ha-karlie

 

If you’re anything like us, as the weather gets warmer and summer approaches, you start thinking about changing up your hair somehow. Usually, that means going lighter. And in 2017, there are so many lightening options that trump the tried-and-tested half head of foils.

Here, we round up three hair colour trends that are just starting to take off now—meaning, they’re likely to be everywhere by Christmas.

PEROXIDE BLONDE

See you tonight @Swarovski 💎✨ #BrillianceforAll

A post shared by Karlie Kloss (@karliekloss) on

Style muse: Karlie Kloss

For the woman who doesn’t do anything in halves. If you’re going to go blonde, take a leaf out of Karlie Kloss’ book and really go blonde.

Recent advances in hair colouring systems minimise the damage bleach afflicts on the hair and the scalp. “New technology provides amazing results,” says Shari, Colour Director at Barney Martin. “These include lipid rich on-scalp bleaching and lightening products to lift whilst protecting the hair and scalp, as well as Olaplex treatments to repair and smooth the surface of the hair.”

COLOUR POP

Blorange

All-over pastel colouring was a trend in late 2016 and apparently, it’s not going anywhere soon. “Pink and grey are the new neutrals in hair colour,” Shari explains. “At Barney Martin, we bleach and lighten, then tone using bespoke formulas to achieve the look.”

TASSELLING

Style muse: Olivia Palermo

According to Aleks Abadia, Director of Hair at Esstudio Galleria, tasseling is the updated version of balayage: “It differs to balayage and hair contouring as it is applied closer to the root for a longer lasting result, with a soft transition of colour between dark and light.” This freehand method is hard to master, but when done right, stylists can seamlessly blend highlights throughout your natural colour. The trick, Aleks says, is to “make sure you feather the colour towards to roots to create a soft effect, rather than a hard line.”

COOL-TONED BRUNETTE

Thank you @jasonwu for having me open your beautiful show today❤️You are so special 🖤🖤

A post shared by Bella Hadid (@bellahadid) on

 

Style muse: Bella Hadid

According to Anthony Nader from RAW Anthony Nader, this year, brunettes are getting a cool-toned makeover, a la Bella Hadid: “and yes, I mean cool.”

“Forego the warmer tones of reds and copper and ask your hair colourist to put a dash of violet or deep midnight blue in the base,” Nader says. But be warned, you might need to update your makeup kit to include cool shades of bronzer and eyeshadow too.

THIS IS THE COOL GIRL HAIRCUT FOR SUMMER

Get our major cool girl haircut crush for summer as seen on ELLE Australia

 This year’s go-to cut just became more effortless.

 

coolgirlhair_hero

 

The cool girl cut has undergone a bit of a transformation: from bobs with bangs trending earlier this year, to ‘rich girl’ hair in the recent past, a clear move has been made towards less layering and a look of effortlessness. This summer’s go-to cut is even simpler: shaggy with focus on ease, wearability and minimal maintenance, perfect for the warm months when the last thing you’d want to do is take a hot blow-dryer to the scalp.

According to Sydney-based hairdresser, Barney Martin, this summer’s preferred cut is focused on versatility. He recommends asking your hair stylist for “a shag cut that works with [your] hair’s natural movement and texture”, and references British it-girl and model Edie Campbell shoulder-length cut as a prime example of this kind of style in action.

This low-maintenance cut will work for those who love an ‘undone’ look, and a style that you can wash-and-wear, but still like to have the option of upping the glam if needed.

Fellow Sydney hair stylist, Anthony Nader, has also taken hairspiration from a British model, citing Ruth Bell as his “absolute go-to for short hair”. Nader has noticed many of his clients bringing in pictures of Bell’s cropped cut, meaning he’s not the only one that loves her ‘do. “I think…that her choppy cut is super feminine and soft, which is workable when creating different hair shapes, and grows out a treat.”

A post shared by Ruth Bell (@ruthnotmay) on

For those who aren’t willing to go the full chop this summer, Nader also suggests a cut for longer hair that is equally as low maintenance. He finds “American model Kaia Gerber is a draw card for many… you can’t go past a beautiful classic haircut that works day in, day out”. To achieve this look for your next cut, ask for a few longer layers throughout the interior of the haircut. This way, your hair won’t appear layered but will still have a slight “swing” to it.
