Dos from catwalk to sidewalk

Kate Winslet

 Rene Furterer, the ultra-chic and natural hair nurturing line from France, quizzed celebrity stylists about which hot looks from Fashion Week should be on your radar this year.

 Here is their report:

 
Undone Chignon
From the ballet barre to the ballroom, the classic chignon is the ultimate in sophistication and elegance. The look is open to interpretation. As the chignon moves from the catwalk to the sidewalk it is loosened up. A more textured, softer version of the classic style has been seen on Diane Kruger, Anne Hathaway and Kate Winslet.
 
“The trick is to start by roughing up the texture of the hair,” says celebrity stylist Birgitte Philippides of Sally Harlor. “If hair is too silky, it won’t hold this style.”
 
Here is Birgitte’s step-by-step guide to perfect the imperfect chignon.                               
 
·        To make a loose chignon, begin by misting dry hair with René Furterer Naturia dry shampoo, first at the roots, and then wherever you want to add more texture. Lightly brush through hair.
·        If hair is freshly washed, spritz it with René Furterer Vegetal Finishing Spray instead of a dry shampoo. Brush hair first to roughen it up a bit, spray, then brush hair again.
·        Gather hair into a low ponytail and secure with a coated elastic band. Make sure the hair is not held too tightly. Take sections of the ponytail, and one at a time, spray with more René Furterer Vegetal Finishing Spray.  This creates extra texture.
·        Next, gently twist the ponytail, wrapping it around the base to create a chignon. Slip in hair pins around the entire chignon to hold it in place. 
·        Finally, to gently loosen up chignon, cup it with your hand and try to free up a few stray hairs — the idea is to go for artful imperfection.

René Furterer Naturia dry shampoo is one of favourite dry shampoos. Some dry shampoos make hair look good, but your hair still feels grotty. Naturia leaves hair feeling fresh to the roots! Also, try it for any style, if you have hair that collapses – it really does give very fine hair extra staying power.
 
Jennifer Lopez with long sexy wavesMarvelous manes
Long manes of shining hair rule this season. Did you see Kate Moss’s fabulous hair on the over of September Vogue? Jennifer Lopez, Mischa Barton and Rosario Dawson all love long seductive tresses, too.
 
Here is star stylist Christian Marc’sstep-by-step guide to gloriously glam hair.                                
 
·        Prep damp hair with René Furterer Vegetal Mousse. This creates the support and body needed to give loose waves more hold.
·        Next, blow-dry hair, using hands rather than a styling brush to fluff up hair.
·        Once your blowout is finished, take one-inch to one-and-a-half-inch-wide sections and wrap each one around a medium-size barrel curling iron, leaving the end of each section straight. This helps to break up the waves for a more natural look.
·        After all sections are curled, work a little René Furterer Acanthe curl enhancing leave-in fluid through the tresses. Turn the head upside down and brush the hair with a Mason Pearson styling brush.
·        For extra shine, mix a little René Furterer Modeling Paste with René Furterer Acanthe curl enhancing leave-in fluid in the palms of your hands, and then run them over the length of your gorgeous new waves.
 
 
René Furterer Vegetal Mousse is one of our favourites. It leaves hair soft but controlled, and contains no sulfates or parabens. The scent of lemon, grapefruit, and lily of the valley is so lovely.
