Sleek and Straight
Shiny, straight locks make for a classic look that you simply can’t go wrong with. It may sound unachievable given the humid weather, but with the right tools and products, you too can mimic Diala Makki’s sleek style. Use a smoothing serum and blow-dry your hair with the nozzle pointing down the hair shaft before carefully ironing it out with a straightener. Set with smoothing cream et voilà – chic, sleek hair.
Rocking some serious curls with an old-school 80s vibe, Yalda Golsharifi’s latest hair look is one we love. To get big, bouncy hair with tight curls, be sure to use a good mousse to add volume and lift when drying your locks, and style dry hair at night so the curls can set whilst you sleep. Run a styling cream through your locks and twist small sections before making mini topknots on your head (aim for about 12), securing them all with bobby pins. Sleep with these in place and untwist them the next morning. They’ll be tight at first, so use your fingers to loosen them up and brush out, if necessary. Use a touch of curl serum to finish, and you’ll have cool curls to rival Golsharifi in next to no time.
