Mane Attraction

Mane Attraction

The date is booked and you have picked out your outfit – now to tackle those tangles! Keep things contemporary and opt for a flirty low-maintenance style that won’t require bathroom check-ups so frequent that your beau wonders if the lobster was off; our list of four ultra-seductive ‘dos below ought to do the trick, no matter the texture of your hair.

A bit of sparkle

Glittering hair accessories are your best bet if you want a touch of glam in exchange for minimum effort. Toni&Guy Beetle Jewels look perfect on pixie cuts or flowing tresses, and the pairing of soft pink and gold is especially fitting for a romantic evening. But if you prefer your romance with a bit of edge, switch it up with a Stud Up Hair Grip or leather-style Biker Bow.

The Shag

The ‘just-got-out-of-bed’ look never wavers in its sex appeal, though it has to be done just right. The key is making sure that your hair is clean and well conditioned. Prep hair with label.m Gentle Cleansing Shampoo, nourish with label.m Daily Shine Conditioner and finally tame flyaways with Redken Diamond Oil Glow Dry. Finish by giving your hair a good tousle for easy elegance.


Natural curls only need a few holy-grail products to keep those spirals in check. Comb Label.m Curl Cream through damp hair, then diffuse or air dry for shiny definition and healthy bounce. Those with straighter hair textures will find the label.m Advanced Pro Curling Tong 19mm a godsend. With a maximum temperature of 210 degrees, you can achieve frizz-free curls that will take you from desk straight to dancefloor.

Smooth Operator

A slicked-back style is sure to awaken your inner femme fatale. All that’s needed to channel your inner Sharon Stone (Basic Instinct, not Total Recall) is a few spritzes of water to dampen and a generous helping of label.m Gel for maximum hold. Brush back from root to tip, don your favourite red lippy and work your magic.
