make waves

MEDIUM-LENGTH HAIR Model and TV personality Tyra Banks STEP 1 Apply a heat-protectant product to your hair and make a side parting. Secure the small part to one side to keep it out of the way while curling the rest. STEP 2 Comb through a small section of hair at the front. Bend this section of hair slightly from the root backward to make a C-shape. Put a heated hair straightener over the indent of the C and tap it (by opening and closing the tongs). STEP 3 Fasten a hair clip over the indent to keep it in place. STEP 4 Make another C-shape further along the same segment of hair, but this time make it face the opposite direction to the first C (in effect creating a wave shape). Again, put the straightener…

TIP Protect your scalp by maintaining a healthy cleansing routine. Scalp issues are extra exposed when your hair is super short. TIP Make sure your hair is well moisturised before tying it up in a puff to protect it from breakage. TIP For curl definition – detangle clean, conditioned hair; moisturise; seal with oil and style in sections. ALL PICTURES: GALLO IMAGES/GETTY IMAGES AND GREATSTOCK UNLESS STATED.

TIP Blow-dry with the nozzle attachment facing down to get super-sleek tresses. Finish with a few drops of shine serum. TIP Dry shampoo is great for absorbing excess oil on bangs. They lay on your forehead and have a small surface so they tend to get greasy fast. TIP Apply conditioner from the ends first so the scalp does not get as much product which can strip its natural oils. HAIR & COLOUR: RUBI HAIR CREATIVE TEAM. SALON: RUBI HAIR @RUBI.HAIR.

porosity and why it’s important

WHAT’S POROSITY? Porosity is the hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture. Hair with low porosity has a tightly bound cuticle layer with overlapping scales that lie flat and don’t absorb moisture or products easily. High-porosity hair has gaps and holes in the cuticles. It absorbs moisture, but can’t retain it and is prone to frizzing and tangling. Medium porosity has slightly open cuticles and is the ideal. It’s important to know what kind of porosity you are dealing with as this will help determine your hair care routine. Try either test below to do a quick check on your hair. POROSITY TESTS Test one: Place a strand of hair in a glass of water. If it floats at the top it’s low porosity, if it stays in the middle it’s medium, but if…

style throwback

FLAT-TOP FADE Supermodel, actress and singer Grace Jones was the embodiment of fabulous self-expression in the ’80s. Her daring fashion and unisex crop – a chic flat-top fade – emphasised her androgynous charm on the stage, magazine covers and the silver screen. Miss Jones wasn’t the only one to rock the look, which rose to popularity among men in the 1950s. Queen Latifah also flirted with the fade at the start of her rap career – with a softer ’90s version. The modern fade is versatile and can be easily adapted to suit your hair type, face shape and personality. It’s also a great option to consider if you’re thinking about going for the big chop or want to mask disappearing edges. CORNROWS In 2001 we were introduced to multitalented songbird Alicia Keys…

new ’do just for you

THESE TWO TRENDY STYLES ARE GREAT FOR TYPE 3C CURLS Bouffant faux hawk STEP 1 Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to gently remove knots and tangles and apply a holding or curl cream. Brush your hair up on the sides with a detangling brush or a soft boar-bristle brush. This will smooth down the hair. STEP 2 Use hair pins to secure the sides you’ve just brushed up. You’ll need a few pins on each side. Leave the front and back sections loose. STEP 3 Use a finer comb to tease the front section of the hair at the roots. This will create volume and structure your hair so it supports the style. After teasing, pin the rest of the hair back to form one big section at the back. TIP Different types of hair pins can…
