BIG HAIR IS BACK
Get Anthony’s top tips to get that iconic 70’s Farrah Fawcett blowout in no time at all.
There’s something beautiful about hairstyles being reinvented. As they’re passed down through the generations, each puts their own spin on that season’s style for a look that’s as “in vogue” as it is steeped in hair history. One that stands out most is big blowouts, a glamourously bouncy look that’s once again – taking the world by storm.
STORY CASSANDRA GREEN – BODY+SOUL
Anthony Nader, founder of Sydney’s RAW salon, says his clients can’t get enough of styles that add va-va-voom. “Every woman I have in my chair is always craving more fullness,” he tells Body+Soul. “Women want sweeping, floating curtain bangs that graze over their eyes, and shorter layers around their face as this gives more shape and softness.”
SO YOU WANT TO MASTER THE ROUND BRUSH?
Anthony Nader says one of the main issues he sees when using a round brush is not enough tension. “You need tension to smooth over unruly, frizzy hair strands and to make it last longer,” he explains. He recommends using a boar bristle brush that has two bristle lengths, and to section the hair carefully, working in 2-5cm sections to avoid being overwhelmed.
To avoid the frizz, direct the flow of air in the same direction as the hair cuticle, and try rolling the ends around the brush as you dry, for that glamourous flick. To create volume, always pull the hair upwards, not downwards, while drying.
