How To Get A Half-Up Half-Down ‘Do, Ala Hansen & Gretel

Cute AND chic.

Hansen & Gretel presented their latest (and littest) collection last night, and can we just say W-O-W!

With fruity patterns, bold stripes, swish double denim, adorable checks, florals and gold glitter garments, the collection made us want to throw out our entire wardrobe and start afresh with nothing but H&G to rebuild it. Let’s just say we were somewhere between cloud nine and the heart eye emoji. Ily, guys!

But it wasn’t just the clothes that lit up the runway. Oh, no! The hair was so chic and cute that we begged the brand to let us in on all their deepest, darkest hair secrets. Turns out it was the masterful hands at KMS that were putting out all these fresh hair #lewks, and they did us the honour of jumping in the hairdresser’s seat to get the full ~scoop~ on how to recreate it at home. If you like looking and feeling pretty, then read on to find, friends. Here goes!

“ 1) Prep the hair with KMS Add Volume Shampoo and Add Volume Leave in conditioner. Use a spray conditioner instead of a cream, it will keep the hair lighter and easier for you when styling.”

“2) Apply KMS Add Volume Styling Foam and two pumps of KMS Add Volume Liquid Dust to the mid lengths and ends.”

“3) Using a hairdryer, blow-dry your hair using your fingers to move the hair around while taking out the moisture.”

“4)  Take a paddle brush or medium round brush and smoothen out and unruly kinks or curls.”

“5) Add in a centre part and begin to form a wave into the hair using a medium size tong. Apply KMS Thermashape 2 in 1to each section securing the shape. We are trying to achieve a wave not a curl.”

“6) Once the hair is wavy and polished, take a section from above each ear to below the round of the head where the nape begins. Place your rope underneath this section and tie in a knot. Wrap the remaining excess rope around the pony tail for 2cm. 3-4cm for a higher impact result.”

“7) Place your rope underneath this section and tie in a knot. Wrap the remaining excess rope around the pony tail for 2cm. 3-4cm for a higher impact result.”

“8) Apply KMS Hairplay Playable Texture to the hair to add definition and hold. Spray your Playable Texture from above allowing the product to sit naturally onto the hair.”
