CHARLIE CULLEN, TONI&GUY INTERNATIONAL ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, TELLS US HOW TO WORK WITH WHAT MOTHER NATURE GAVE YOU




Afro

“For afro hair it’s all about the silhouette and a sculpted cut is really popular. We’re seeing lower tapers with fades, so the shape can still be quite square but it doesn’t have to be high. Try using a heated wand to manipulate the hair and label.m Shine Mist to calm down any static. Set with label.m Extreme Hold Hairspray, which isn’t too heavy so you can still use a comb to pick out the shape.”




Wavy

Make sure hair is texturised but not in a way that’s going to distress the cuticle and cause frizz. It should look groomed but soft. So keep the sides and back neat, but have more of a longer length on top as hair tends to bounce up a little in its natural state. I’d recommend label.men Straight Grooming Cream toadd moisture but very light hold and also the label.m Sea Salt Spray to encourage that beachy texture.”




Straight

“Straight hair can be quite stubborn so use a strong product such as label.men Deconstructor – it has a matte feel but will allow you to tame hair that doesn’t want to sit flat. We’re seeing lots of 90s-style fringes now, which gives extra versatility as you can slick it back. To do this, I’d recommend using the label.men Sculpting Pomade because it has a stronger hold and works really well with straight hair.”




Curly

"Longer length curls are really cool at the moment. Treat with label.men Invigorating Conditioner as it won’t weigh it down, and style with label.m Soufflé so the curls aren’t crispy or artificial-looking. Work through the ends and use hands to manipulate the curl. Let hair dry naturally – too much heat makes it too bouffant. Ask your stylist to remove some weight but keep it looking a little bit outgrown.”
