Want soft effortless looking tousled hair? Herbal Essences has created the perfect products to achieve natural looking tousled hair. In the past, trying to achieve a natural looking soft wave was nearly impossible. Either the hair would get too crispy from using hair products or you'd loose the wave by the end of the day. However, Herbal Essences has developed Tousle Me Softly, six hair products to achieve the no fuss, beachy tousled hair minus the crunch. At the beginning of June I had the chance to check out the new Tousle me Softly Collection at the lovely Winsdor Arms Hotel. Celebrity hairstylist Charles Baker was at hand to demonstrate the new products and offered some of his top secret hair styling tips. Well, not so secret anymore!
-to get rid of fly-aways spray a Kabuki brush with hairspray & run thru hair
-"Building a House technique" the right tools are key in achieving the tousle look. Layering the right products help to achieve the desired look.
-Start the waves at around eye-level this creates a softer & more natural wave
-"Pattycake" waves created by flat ironing pincurls
-"Pretty Dreadlocks" waves created by spinning the hair in sections & flat ironing the spins, with fingers rub the hair section to achieve a messy dread-like wave
Check out the video! My favourite way to achieve tousle hair is the flat-iron technique that Charles uses in the video.
Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly collection will be available in August 2009 at drug, food and mass retailers across Canada. Prices range from $3.99 cdn to $7.99.
