How-To: Artfully Undone Hair
Effortless – artfully undone hair. As seen on models day-off, runway and editorial – artfully undone hair may look effortless, but actually takes a bit of work.
To get that – “just rolled out of bed look” – texture is key. Frizz and flyaways are welcomed (for a change). Use products that will matte the hair for dry texture.
To get artfully undone hair – follow these simple steps:
1. Apply Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam to damp hair and roughly blow-dry with fingers, scrunching hair as you dry.
2. Twist hair up into a bun to set it and mist with Powder Refresh 01 aerosol hair powder/dry shampoo for texture.
3. Take hair out of the bun, spray more Powder Refresh 01 for added texture and a matte finish.

Struck Oil: Moraccanoil
Moroccanoil is an oil treatment for the hair, derived from natural Argan Oil. This brand’s unique formula promises to fortify the hair, improve elasticity and protect against free-radicals.
Moroccanoil instantly absorbs into the hair creating instant shine without leaving an oily residue. It intensely hydrates and conditions the hair leaving it silky and smooth. It speeds up drying time and puts an end to frizzy, unmanagable hair.
Although there are other Argan-based brands that claim to do the same, Moroccanoil is truly one-of-a kind. It smells delicious, like an exotic vacation and never leaves hair greasy or sticky.
Tip: Apply Moroccanoil to damp hair at night, twist into a bun and pin to the top of head. In the morning hair will be soft, wavy and completely frizz-free.
