“Every Woman Has A Story”

During the recent New York Fashion Week, the hair spotted at fashion designer Tracy Reese SS’18 presentation was inspired by the message that “Every Woman Has A Story”—and featured a mix of models alongside real women. During the presentation, the women each shared what made them unique, what they believed in or what inspired them. The beauty look embraced individuality enhancing each woman’s multifaceted personality. Here an understated blowout, created by show hairstylist Bok-Hee for Cantu, makes use of coif texture while presenting a simple yet wearable silhouette. Here’s how to get the look:

Step 1: Start by spraying roots and lengths of hair with Cantu Refresh Dry Co-Wash for a clean, conditioned base.

Step 2: Next, spray hair with a heat protectant and blow hair out smooth using a round brush.

Step 3: Once hair is smoothed out, use a 1 ½ inch curing iron to create subtle curls at the lengths. When finished, loosen up the curls with your fingers for a subtle wave.

Step 4: Lastly, mold hairline around the part and face to stand up slightly lightly with a strong-hold edge gel.
