It’s no secret that the team at SalonCapri loves creating elaborate updos and braids, but we also know the importance of perfecting the simple, chic and versatile styles that we rock everyday! Whether you’re sporting a blunt lob, or long layered locks, we believe soft romantic ringlets and sleek, straight strands will never go out of style. We asked Senior Stylist Cameron Ryan of our Newbury Street location to share her pro tips, products recos and step-by-step instructions for getting these two simple (yet chic!) looks down pat for spring.
Soft Spring Ringlets:
- Comb hair and apply apply 2-3 pumps of Kérastase Cristaliste Cristal Sculpt to dry hair for shine and manageability.
- Section hair into 3 layers, clipping the top two layers up so that you have room to work.
- Using a flatiron, curl hair in 2-inch sections by placing the flat iron about 3/4 of the way up the strand and twisting it away from your face while slowly moving it down the rest of the hair strand.
Cameron’s Tip: Want the look but no time for the styling process? Cameron recommends getting a set of heated rollers as “they are perfect for busy mornings - you can let them set during your morning routine!” Apply rollers on 2-inch sections of hair and secure. Once they have cooled, gently unroll and looses ringlets with your fingers. A light spritz of hairspray will ensure your ringlets stay intact throughout the day.
Sleek and Straight:
- Comb hair with a fine-toothed comb to ensure all tangles have been removed.
- Apply 1-2 pumps of Kérastase Fibre Architecte to the ends and mid-lengths of hair to seal split ends and add shine.
- Working in small sections, use a flat iron to straighten strands first near the nape of the neck and then moving upward until the entire head is pencil straight.
Cameron’s Tip: Cameron recommends creating this look on freshly washed and blown-out hair as “unwashed hair often has additional oils that can weigh down sleeker looks, making them appear flat and dull.” If you don’t have the time to wash and dry your tresses, a dusting of dry shampoo near your roots to soak up excess oil.
