How-To: Loose Texture

ECKHAUS LATTA beauty for the AW16 Collection plays around with the idea of how “messy” can be beautiful. With ease and confidence, the hair goes wild with gritty, textured curls.

Hair led by Michael Forrey for SASSOON, starts off by creating homemade pins with paper size sheets of tin foil which are hand crinkled into long .25 inch wide rods and then bent back, forming an extra large hair pin. The larger size is desired to create a wider, erratic curl. Next, pull the hair in random triangular sections while wrapping the around the pin until no more hair is left. Be sure to fasten with a bobby pin. To secure  the curls, heat is applied by using a flat iron and reinforced with Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity Spray. After releasing the hair from the pins, brush the texture out to loosen the curls. Take sections from the bottom up using Sebastian Professional Texture Maker and spray the curls down pulling them out with the fingers making them appear rough and reckless. To create a slept on look, twist some pieces of hair to resemble a dread lock shape. The Sebastian Texture Maker spray creates a dry matte finish while bringing down the curls. Finally, scrunch hair to encourage careless cowlicks and imperfections.
