Fast, easy, carefree - Undone hair is a hot trend and it is easy to see why.
On my last trip to NYC for my haircut I observed two things; bright red lipstick and messy, undone hair.
My amazing stylist, while giving me one of my best haircuts ever, also encouraged me to let my hair dry naturally and to not style it so perfect, as I am prone to do. It was hard for me to get used to at first, but...she was right on. It is so freeing!
A couple weeks after my trip, I started noticing undone hair on the cover of almost every fashion magazine. It all looked so good. I was sold.
I started to think about it, this is nothing new, of course. Think back to Janis Joplin's hair - talk about undone! It was awesome. And here it comes again, only now on all lengths and textures. Don't get me wrong, I am a "every hair has its place" type of person at heart, and that has its place with precision haircuts. But this is something that can look good on everyone. AND it takes so much time off your beauty routine. What used to take me 30 minutes, with round brush, flat iron, etc,. now takes me 5 minutes - a quick blow dry of the bangs, the proper product application and leave it alone!
Of course, this all works if you have the proper hairstyle, cut with skill and worked to your individual features. That is KEY. Then you can shampoo, condition, apply your styling products and either rough dry with your hands or simply air dry and maybe fine tune your fringe or face frame, if they are uncontrollable like mine.
So don't limit yourself - give it a try! Come Undone and you could find you are looking at a whole new you!
