Gracing the cover of Allure magazine is Miss Moss, she with the most covetable of hair. What’s so good about her style is that it never looks dated, and is always modern and cool. But her style really comes into its own during the summer months when beachy texture is most wanted. How to get The Kate? Sam says: “This look is all about the prep work. Whether you blow-dry it or let it dry naturally, it’s always best to use a volumising product – I recommend Pantene Volume & Body Mousse. It will get volume into the roots and expand hair’s width”. Then onto the tongs: “With Kate we tend to use medium barrelled tongs from half-way down the hair – literally just pop the tongs in and out so it’s just a glance of heat, leaving the ends out so they are a bit straight”. The key to this look though, is that once the bulk of the hair is tonged, the front should be blow-dried flat so it’s very natural and organic looking. “This keeps it looking cooler and less done”, explains Sam. All that is needed to finish is a lighting misting of hairspray – you don’t want it to look too done – and there you have it – cool summer hair à la Kate.
