Byrdie Editors’ Hair How-To: A Texture Takeover

At Byrdie, we’re obsessed with all things beauty, inside and out. We’re self-described product junkies, and we’re always testing out the latest stuff to see what actually works. Take note: We have a nose for gimmicks. Keep an eye out for our guest posts, where our editors will share everything from what’s worth buying to celeb looks, step-by-step tutorials, and more.

While sleek hairstyles are super-chic and have their moments, we can’t get enough of textured hair these days. Maybe it has something to do with not wanting to fully let go of summer, but in general, textured styles are more laid-back and look best when every strand isn’t perfectly in place. Striving for imperfection? Now that’s a strategy we can get on board with. Also, these gorgeously—and thoughtfully, we should add—messy styles often embrace our natural texture, which is always a good thing.

We’ve chosen three texture styles and mapped out exactly how to achieve them. We like to call them style all-stars because they’re worthy of adding to your arsenal of signature looks. Plus, they’re easy and fun, and only require three products to nail. From the perfect pony to beachy waves, you’ll have these textured styles mastered in no time. ’Do you.

Celebrity Hair Stylist Jen Atkin on How to Get Shiny, Red-Carpet Tresses

Ever wish you could touch Chrissy Teigen’s pony? Or run your fingers through Gigi Hadid’s tendrils? That type of stalker behavior is totally acceptable if you’re celebrity stylist Jen Atkin. (Otherwise, it’s a huge no-no, like possibly prosecutable.) Atkin is friend and hair adviser to some of the loveliest manes in Hollywood. In addition to Teigen and Hadid, she glosses the locks of the Kardashians and Jenners, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry.

Atkin is also the founder of the game-changing hair line OUAI (a collection of no-nonsense products for ladies who don’t like fuss but want beautiful hair) and a spokesperson for the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer (a timesaving tool seemingly sent to us from the future).

Jen Atkin

She’ll be taking over our Instagram account on April 22 with hair tips and trendy styles for you to try. In the meantime, we asked her to demystify hair care and tell us how we can get celebrity tresses of our own right now.

Che Bella: Milan Fashion Week Beauty

Some of the most advanced style in Milan this week came via the makeup and hair on the runway. While there were still shows that embraced the no-makeup makeup trend that has been prevalent in recent seasons, this is Italy, and glamour has rarely been barefaced on the Boot.

For the shows, the beauty must never compete, but cannot be so subtle as to seem casual next to the evening gowns. To create the stunning hair and makeup that complemented Fall 2017’s Chinese-inspired sheaths, Marchesa turned to Moroccanoil and M·A·C.
