We've been enjoying a number of red carpet looks that showcase Glass Skin which presents perfectly glossy, poreless complexions. This fall, beauty experts are noting that it’s all about Glass Hair: a smooth, ultra-shiny lob made popular by on-trend celebs including The Kardashian-Jenners, Lucy Hale, Vanessa Hudgens, Olivia Culpo and more. Although the name is a perfect companion to Glass Skin, the concept of this hairstyle is better and originally known as The Silk Press (a la Kelly Rowland, Rhianna etc). Regardless of the name or when you have been looped into it, you can get this look with tips from IGK’s co-founder Leo Izquierdo.
1. Cleanse and condition with IGK BAD & BOUGIE Amla Oil Deep Repair Shampoo & Conditioner ($25 each) to revitalize the scalp and add moisture and enhanced shine. The restorative formula contains Amla Oil, Coconut Oil and a Patented Vegetable Protein Complex.
2. Prep your locks with a leave in conditioner, we suggest Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream ($52) mixed with the new Oribe Power Drops Damage Repair Booster ($58). Just a few drops of the powerful elixir improves hair health and combability by smoothing the cuticle to enhance softness and restore elasticity.
3. “For a super sleek, high-shine look spray GOOD BEHAVIOR Spirulina Protein Smoothing Spray ($32) in sections on damp hair and blow dry in. The product is heat-activated and uses spirulina and keratin proteins and innovative bonding polymers to mimic the very shiny, smooth look of a keratin treatment.” – Leo Izquierdo, Co-founder of IGK Hair Care
4. “To maximize glassy results, spray again on dry hair (the product has 450*F heat protection) and flat iron in. Do small sections for best results.” – Leo Izquierdo, Co-founder of IGK Hair Care
