LARA BINGLE CLEO COVER GIRL! How To Get Her locks!


After much demand, here are my hair notes to get Lara’s beachy locks on her latest cover with CLEO Australia!

 

I wanted to keep Lara’s traditional dishevelled & sexy hair feel, but also give it a slightly 90’s super model edge.

To start Lara’s hair  I sprayed KMS Root & Body Lift onto her roots and mid lengths. I tend to blow-dry more with my fingers to add volume to Lara’s hair rather than a brush ,for this particular look. You want to have volume, but you also want to start building a texture and brushing can make the hair to fluffy. What I love about the KMS Root & Body Lift is it’s got a fantastic hold and texture to the roots but is super light weight on the hair. It won’t weigh the hair down.

A little Tip; If you have fine hair or hair that tends to go flat, try  flipping your head up side down and blow-drying your hair up side down. Allow it to cool before you flip it back over!!

Once her hair was dry and I was happy with the amount of lift, I sprayed in KMS Sea Salt Spray from the Hair Play Range into the mid lengths and ends of her hair. The trick to adding the Sea Salt Spray to dry hair is you want to work it through with your hands in a crunching-like motion, clumping all the hair together. Once you have a nice texture tuck the hair loosely behind your ears, this creates the natural bend you see in the front, and then allow to dry. Tip; Do Not Touch till its dry!

Once it’s dry you can pull the front pieces out and give it a loose shake. I little KMS Control Creme in the ends to stop them from going too fluffy and there’s how you get Bingle’s sexy beach locks!

I’d like to thank Lara and the team at CLEO Australia for a wonderful day!

Enjoy x MM

    Love this! Can this work for thick hair? My hair is very thick and i find it hard to get a beachy effect. Thankyou x

  3. max says:

    yes it can. You may wan to use a little more of the curling balm thro the ends to stop the hair from breaking up and becoming big and fluffy!! x MM

    Love how you do LB’s hair! I try to do this look but, as I have curly hair I blow dry, straighten, beach curl which seems harsh for my hair. Any tips Max?? X

    We always want what you cant have, You should concentrate on making your hair the perfect messy, curl….
    Rough drying curl hair with sea salt and sleeping on it could be a the way for you! x MM
