Here we explore the dreamy synergy between easy elegance and free-flowing simplicity at Maggie Marilyn’s NZ Fashion Week show. A range of believable looks was achieved by going with the flow of each model’s natural hair texture yet unified in spirit thanks to the direction of L’Oreal Professionnel artist Zoe Walker and team.

Discover how to get the look, here:

Step 1: Apply a strong hold, heat-activated setting spray to clean hair to encourage body and texture.

Step 2: Use a blowdryer with a diffuser attachment to help set the spray. The trick is to place the diffuser under the hair with a slight head tilt to ensure maximum coverage and speedy drying that encourages movement.

Step 3: A final shake and spray with a firm hold fixing spray is all that’s needed for hold so hair appears to be in its natural state but better, amplified but still able to move and evolve.
