Hair Musing | Love Thy Frizz

Hair Musing | Love Thy Frizz

Autumn hair has its highs and lows. One moment it’s sunny and the next moment you’re running for shade from a torrential downpour. If you live in Auckland, you know exactly what I am talking about [insert my big rolling eyes]. If you live in Wellington, you might want to consider investing into one of these. But, here is a wild thought: Instead of distressing about our frizzies, why don’t we embrace it for Autumn?? After all, Sauce’s intention is never to be a beauty platform that provokes our anxiety; in fact, we want to do just the opposite. So, for autumn, we’re embracing those frizzies! Let Kennedy Montano and makeup artist & hairstylist Alexandra Stanworth show you how to do it right. Editorial photographed by Luke Foley Martin.

“The lovely Kennedy naturally has very curly hair. I loved it and didn't want to change it for the shoot so I only needed a few products. Firstly, I sprayed the hair with Ouai Wave Spray. I then used a generous amount of O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum - this is my hero piece when it comes to hair in my kit. It controls any frizz, but it softens the hair and leaves it looking really shiny and healthy - plus it smells AMAZING. 

Then I use a toothbrush and spray O&M Original Queenie hair spray directly onto the toothbrush and gently brush down any baby hairs or fly aways that I don't want showing on camera. I lightly spray all over the hair O&M Original Queenie throughout the hair to hold the curl” - Alexandra Stanworth.
