Cloud Nine Ambassadors Talk Trends for Spring/Summer2014
Just like the changes in weather, the trends for the upcoming season are often difficult to predict. Fortunately, we’ve got our Cloud Nine ambassadors on hand to fill us in with their style secrets for Spring and Summer 2014 as well as give us some tried and tested advice on how to achieve them in the comfort of your own home.
Smile and wave
Waves are in! And the good news is it’s easy to achieve the shiny sun kissed curly look with our range of Cloud Nine products. The multi award winning Wand from Cloud Nine Wand can give you a wide variety of curled styles from vintage curls to retro waves!
Leigh Keates, Global Creative Ambassador had this to say “The big trend for SS14 is the loose and natural, raw but beautiful waves, like those seen at Blumarine, Mulberry, Narciso Rodriquez and many more.”
For a loose, natural wave, wet your hair and spray it generously with some Cloud Nine magical potion before giving it a blast dry. You can brush your hair out with your Blow Dry Boar Bristle Brush, which will also help to control the frizz. Next, separate your hair into different sized sections and wrap them around your Wand to achieve a mix of tight and loose curls. Finally, run the Dressing Brush through your hair for a natural finish.
Angel Montague-Sayers, UK Creative Ambassador commented saying “Gone are the days of strict, head pinching ponytails because this Spring/Summer it’s all about the loose and low version. The key to perfecting this look is to keep texture to a minimum and not over-fuss with added curls and waves. An array of designers showcased this trend including Helmut Lang, Roksanda Illincic, Christopher Raeburn and Jackie JS Lee.”
To get the most out of your C9 Touch Iron start by smoothing out your hair before lightly backcombing a section of hair at the crown to give it an extra lift. Loosely secure your hair at the nape of your neck with a stylish elastic band or bobble. This will give your hair a light and bouncy effect perfect for a night out on the town.
For an even softer finish, tip your head upside down and gently shake through your ponytail with your hands. Complete the look with a sprinkling of UNITE Expanda Dust and use the tips of your fingers to blend it into the mid-lengths and ends for a more textured, matte finish.
