Opening up your face
doesn’t necessarily mean you need to tie your hair up. Some hairstyles will allow you to do this whilst wearing your lengths loose. Ever tried tucking your hair behind your ears for a neat look? The pros reveal all.
Although this hairstyle is best suited to women with straight hair
, other hair types can give this look a go too. ‘Here, you simply need to keep in mind that the upper section, above the ears, needs to be straight. So, you can either choose between all-over straight locks or simply smoothing over your upper root rea with the straighteners. It’s up to you to decide which suits you best. A word of advice for those of you with thick hair: don’t attempt to straighten all of your hair, as the end result will not appear as neat and sculpted as the original’.
This look also looks great paired with a bob
. ‘The key part of this look is that your hair shouldn’t have too many layers, as you’ll need to be able to tuck everything back behind your ears. If you’re trying out this style with short hair, make sure your hair reaches your chin for best results’.
Creating this catwalk look is relatively simple. ‘Dry your hair straight using a round barrel brush, or go for a Brazilian straightening treatment to ensure a professional finish. Next, you can smooth over any remaining lumps and bumps with your straighteners. Apply a strong-hold styling product such as Fix Ultime
for a long-lasting finish, then comb the front sections of your hair back behind your ears’. Our advice:
