Looking for more style inspo? When it comes to choosing a hairstyle at the salon, we often get inspiration from what we see on Instagram, TikTok or our favourite idols. We base the style that we want on similar photos, such as different celebrities with the same laid-back waves or curtain bangs. But besides going for a certain look, versatility should also be a factor to consider.
Whether it is a day in the office, a night out or brunch with friends, our hairstyle should easily transform into different styles, while still looking great and fresh all day everyday. With this in mind, the team at Hairwerkz has created a collection of 6 looks with a youthful edge that can be adapted for various face shapes and textures (check out the collection’s feature on Singapore’s Women’s Weekly here too!). Want to dress up or down your hairstyle? The looks have been specially made in a way where you can effortlessly use styling products to transform them. And boys, don’t fret, there are styles for you too.
Before we share with you the looks, Hairwerkz Creative Director Ted Ng shares that hair in Singapore should be prepped with good foundational products – namely a volume mousse, heat protectant and a blow-dry spray. Read on to find out the Goldwell products that he recommends.
Introducing Hairwerkz’s Your Everyday But Better series:
1. Low modern ponytail to long sexy waves
Want to get bangs but hope to be able to style it in different ways? A style perfect for date nights, this curtain bangs cut looks amazing in a low ponytail. Unlike usual ponytails that tend to make your face look round and bald from the front, strands of your curtain bangs are left untied to flatter your face shape. There is also still volume left in the hair at the top of your head.
Have the option to wear your bangs in a casual yet chic way with your hair down too. The layered strands add more volume and movement to typical asian hair. To tame potential frizz, Hairwerkz Creative Director Ted Ng recommends personal Goldwell StyleSign collection favourite Diamond Gloss Protect & Shine spray. With the low-maintenance soft ashy colour, this practical hairstyle is definitely one to follow.
2. Sleek straight hair to half-do textured hair
If short hair is more of your thing, this hairstyle draws inspiration from K-pop idols with its reddish brown shade which compliments Asian skin tones well. Wearing the hairstyle straight gives you a more sleek and chic look. To enhance and maintain the style all day long, Goldwell’s Diamond Gloss Protect & Shine Spray tames frizz and gives your hair an intense shine while the Magic Finish Lustrous Hair Spray provides the style better longevity (especially useful in Singapore’s humidity!).
If you’d like to opt for a more youthful and cute look, easily style it into a half updo and add some volume with Goldwell’s StyleSign Creative texture range to add waves. It serves a totally different and fresh vibe!
3. Formal clean look to a casual wavy style
For the guys, there are also ways you can effortlessly change up your look. This style has a longer fringe to help keep things versatile. Ted recommends his personal Goldwell StyleSign favourite Roughman Matte Cream Paste to provide all-day control for all hairstyles. Swipe your hair to one side and hold it down for a more clean style suitable for work and formal events, and style the fringe forward with some volume and waves for a more playful and casual look for the weekends.
