Part the Waves

Defined side and center parts were all over the runways at the recent spring 2013 fashion shows in New York. Why wait for spring to try this look?

“Hair this season is healthy and shiny but still reflects a do-it-yourself attitude,” said Benjamin Mohapi, L’Oreal Professional session artist and owner of Salon Benjamin in Los Angeles. “The defined, clean part gives any style an air of sophistication while a deep pull to the side gives a more youthful, energetic feel.”

Mohapi created the runway look for the Alice + Olivia fashion show, and it’s an easy style to steal. He suggests starting with L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil for a sleek, frizz-free look.

First, apply the oil. Then create a clean center or side part. Pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and curl with a large barrel curling iron for a ’70s style. For some glamour, create a defined, deep side part, leaving hair down with loose, full waves. The Ion Style Team is so going to rock this look during the holidays.

And don’t worry about oil turning your hair into a hot mess. “Oils can balance and restore nutrients for all hair types if you choose the right formula,” Mohapi said.

L’Oreal’s Mythic Oil comes in four formulas: Nourishing Oil for all hair types; Reinforcing Milk for fine hair; Colour Glow for color-treated hair; and Rich Oil for course and unruly hair.
