Catwalk hair alert! It's time to bring your style into A/W...

04 September 2008


Unplug those straighteners now! We're officially in September and it's time to bring your hair into A/W with the new Gucci blowout. It's a new-season version of S/S's beachy look. Think big roots, volume and a touch of a romantic wave.

Key points to achieving the Gucci Blowout:
1.Centre Parting - no explanation needed!
2. Volume from the roots - try L'Oréal Professional Volume Lift, £9.25, which is specifically for root volume. Dry your roots first but tip your head upside down for extra root lift
3. Soft waves - twist sections of your hair whilst drying. Prep hair beforehand using Bumble & Bumble's Does It All Styling Spray, £10.50

This look is a rougher, rock chick version of the usually sleek Gucci wave, we're thinking more along the lines of hippy lux meets fierce fashionista.  

Top Tip: Don't worry about fly-away bits at the roots, the more the merrier!
