If your hair type leans to thick, textured, corkscrew curls then 2011 is the perfect time to embrace them; to enhance them. Forget the straightening irons and chemical treatments, the influence of 70s fashion means there’s no better time to go with the ‘fro. And if there’s one lesson learned from this beautiful shoot by Vivienne Mok its that a voluminous, textured ‘afro’ hairstyle doesn’t have to be accompanied by flares and platforms, rather it can work just as well with soft, romantic chiffons and lace.
Model Myriam Averlant’s halo of bushy spirals are faded through with caramel highlights for an even more striking effect; a perfect colour variation to try for summer 2011 and one that will carry through easily to the cooler months as well.
