Anyone who knows me knows I'm a fan of spinning and when I heard AG hair was doing a pop up shop at Eastwood Cycle, I was all in! Sweat it out for 45 minutes (the Icon is my favourite), shower then head over for a blow-dry. Proceeds from the blow-dry go to the Women Leading Change Foundation who build schools for young girls living in impoverished areas in Africa. Cost of each blow-dry is $25.
I asked Ora from AG Hair to share some tips for styling and latest trends. First, think beyond one function that each product serves. For example, you can use your dry shampoo as a texturing spray. This will give you a better hold when you're trying to get volume. Simply spray near roots of hair and backcomb. You can also use your fingers if you like. This will keep your hair from sliding and keep it in place a little better.
Keeping things as natural as possible is always on trend. The effortless look is easy to achieve with a few simple products. As for long versus short hair for fall? Ora says the Lob (long bob) is holding strong. It's a refreshing style that can really transform a look. Not quite ready for a short do? You can always layer your hair and put your hair back in a low bun. Soft waves on the shorter layers will give a "lob" look.
I chose the relaxed beachy wave look which is great from day to night. All you need are 3 products:
- AG's spray gel-Put a little in hair before blowdrying.
- AG's Deflect-Defends hair from heat styling.
- AG's Plastique-Volumizer
