Glass Hair – The Latest Hair Trend Straight from Hollywood
Do you remember the much-hyped Korean skincare import, glass skin? Well if so you won’t be shocked to hear that it’s mane counterpart is the latest trend to hit the Hollywood hair circuit. Glass hair put simply is a sharp cut styled impeccably straight looking as smooth and shiny as glass.
Not only has the trend gone global but videos showcasing the mirror-effect hair have gone viral online.
If your clients are longing for this achingly cool look Suzie McGill, Owner of Rainbow Room International says the key lies in the right shampoo and conditioner. “To provide clients with super sleek and shiny glass-like hair in the salon, firstly you should wash the hair with a great moisturising shampoo and conditioner (or shampoo and hair mask for optimum care for the hair) that will allow the hair to look in its most pristine condition, healthy and full of shine.”
Then, to finish make sure you’re drying correctly; “After you have washed your clients hair, you should blow-dry it straight using a hairdryer with a nozzle that’s pointed downwards, drying the hair section by section to make sure the finish is straight and smooth. Once you have worked your way through the hair, finish by going over the hair one more time with the hairdryer on the cool setting, as this will stop the hair from being frizzy,” continued Suzie.
You clients also need to be prepared for a cut. “The key to the glass hair trend, is to ensure the hair is all one length and is cut with a super straight, blunt finish. This uniformity in length is what makes this look really fresh and sharp,” said Krysia Eddery, Owner and Director of Perfectly Posh Hair Design.
