Get Your Hair On Trend With GRAZIA's Shades Of Winter

by Schwarzkopf AU

There's no doubt that winter is the most stylish season of them all. But in a season so defined by fashion, how do you keep your hair on point? GRAZIA's latest shoot, Shades of Winter, is where fashion meets hair colour and style. Here's everything you need to know about the hair, and how to get it.

Each hair colour was hand-picked from our Brilliance collection by Schwarzkopf's National Technical Educator, Grant Withnell, while the team at LSG Creative worked to make each hair style beautifully simple, so you can recreate the looks at home.

Hair Colour: Brilliance Sunkissed Blonde

A luscious, neutral blonde that let’s you choose from three expert colouring techniques, ombre, streaks, or splashlights. If you’re looking to go blonde from a darker hair colour, don’t forget to pre-lighten your hair for best results.

Hair Colour: Brilliance Intensive Red

A deep, rich red that exudes confidence. “It’s impossible to not be captivated by anyone who can pull off this colour” says Schwarzkopf’s National Technical Educator, Grant Withnell.

The Style

These loose, textured waves are actually as effortless as they seem - you can recreate them in three simple steps:

  1. Apply Extra Care Push Up Volume mousse to the roots of your towel-dried hair, before blow-drying.
    Using mousse as a foundation product helps to give your hair volume, and if your want some extra va-va-voom, blow dry your hair upside down from the roots.

  2. Using large curling tongs, take thick sections of your hair and wrap around the tongs section by section.
    To create uneven, natural looking waves, alternate the direction of your curls - wrapping some around to curl toward the front, and others to curl toward the back. Once you’ve curled all of your hair, run your fingers through it to pull apart the curls and get that loose wave look.

  3. Apply volume powder directly to your roots and rub it into your hair to create extra height and a matte look.
    Finish off with a lightweight hairspray that will hold your style in place, while still giving your waves movement and bounce.

Hair Colour: Brilliance Chocolate Mystery

A neutral, dark brunette that looks stunning on those with fair skin tones - perfect for those cooler months when your tan’s not up to scratch!

The Style

Create this textured, undone street style in just three steps:

  1. Apply Essence Ultime sea salt spray to damp or towel-dried hair before blow-drying in a backwards motion - upwards from your hair’s ends to the roots.
    This gives your hair that voluminous, tousled texture

  2. Apply Extra Care volume powder directly to your roots and rub it into your hair to create extra height and a matte look.

  3. Finish the look by flipping your head upside down and spraying with a lightweight hairspray.
    This will give your hair the body, texture, and hold it needs to look fabulous all day!

Hair Colour: Brilliance Copper Mahogany

One of our favourite hair colours of 2016, this is a colour that can make a statement while oozing class and is “particularly complimentary on those with delicate, fair skin tones” says Grant.

Hair Colour: Brilliance Smouldering Red

Nothing short of bold and beautiful, this vibrant colour suits the girl whose hair is her everything - “if you love it, wear it loud and proud” says Grant.

The Style

This style is perfect for hair with a long, layered cut. Follow these three simple steps to get it yourself:

  1. Apply Essence Ultime sea salt spray to towel-dried hair and blow-dry, using your hands to ruffle your hair as you do.

  2. Starting halfway down the length of your hair, wrap your hair once around your straightening iron to create a bend.
    Depending on the length of your hair, move further down and repeat to create another bend.

  3. Apply Extra Care volume powder by putting it first into the palm of your hand, rubbing your hands together, and then working through the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair for a matte, textured finish.

Hair Colour: Brilliance Romantic Brown

A soft, neutral shade of brunette that compliments naturally bronzed beauties.

The Style

To achieve these glamorous waves, follow these three simple steps:

  1. Apply Extra Care Push Up Volume mousse to the roots of your towel-dried hair before blow-drying by taking 3cm sections at a time, using a large round brush.

  2. The trick with this style is ‘think big’. Using a large barrel curling iron, take generous sections (2cm wide) of hair at a time and curl around the iron.
    When your hair is heated through, pull the iron out, keeping your hair in a tight twist - continue until all of your hair is curled.

  3. Add a light mist of hairspray before softly brushing the curls out and plumping your waves into position.
    When you’re happy with the look, finish with  Extra Care strong styling hairspray to keep it in place all day!
