How to: Burberry’s tousled flowing hair

A flowing hair-out look is so perfect for cooler days. Make it a deliberately dishevelled and textured look and it’s even better – you don’t have to worry about a bit of wind or rain, it’s all part of the bed-hair routine.

But rolling out of bed and having the perfect tousled wave isn’t necessarily going to happen, so a few quick steps helps to engineer the right effect. Backstage at Burberry Prorsum’s autumn / winter 2012 show, Neil Moodie for Bumble & Bumble created exactly the kind of easy flowing hairdo that’s perfect for those chilly days.

Ideal for mid-long hair, be sure to add this one to your list of fall 2012 hairstyles.

First you need product to create some thickness and texture in the hair. Backstage Neil Moodie layered Bumble & Bumble’s Prep Spray and Thickening Spray into the hair from middle to ends.
Dry the product in using a diffuser for maximum texture.
Pick out random sections of hair and curl tem with a large barrelled iron. The overall effect should be of messy waves haphazardly through the hair (not so curly that they sit obviously apart from the rest of the hair).
Finish with a styling cream to keep it in place and stop the hair from falling flat. The team at Burberry used Bumble & Bumble Brilliantine.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
