What’s Hot In Australia

joan1Stylist and fashion designer Joan Dellavalle, of Ebony & Ivory Hairdressing in Perth, Australia, visited the Sophisticate’s Black Hair offices today to give us the style scoop on what the sisters down under think is so haute

“Long, fabulous thick hair extensions with color,” tells Dellavalle of Perth, Australia’s most-desired coif profile. “We’re still playing around with color and ombre—browns and auburn browns are hot.” The mane guru, who flaunted ombre teal-and-turquoise lengths during her visit, describes the ladies of Perth as “classy, fabulous divas.” (We’re not surprised!)

Her best tip to give long tresses gorgeous volume: blow-dry your mane upside down. Once waves have been crafted with a large-barreled curling wand you can then “push it back and just blow-dry the front section smoother. It’ll take you from a day at work to an evening with cocktails.”
