The Rio carnival is in full swing, and we're once again being wowed by the glittering costumes, lively music and ever-higher hairstyles! However, in real life, what are the hair trends that Brazilian women love the most? Let's take a look...
Long and curly
Natural curls? Make the most of them by maximising the volume and keeping your hair long and curly. Apply a wave-enhancing shampoo and conditioner, then scrunch in some curl-defining cream or spray, and use the diffuser to dry hair without losing the bounce.
Sleek and frizz-free
Forget the heat and keep your look glossy and flyaway-free with the help of the Steampod by L'Oréal Professionnel. A pro-keratin cream is applied first, then the pod's anodised ceramic plates deliver an even blast of high-pressured steam and push the pro-keratin into the fibers.
Practical but super feminine, the high ponytail looks at its best when slicked back and smooth. A treatment with the Steampod will get you the sleekest locks you've ever - you only need to use a comb to pull the hair up and back, then secure in place with a separate section of hair for a creative extra touch.
Brazilian girls know the power of good beach hair! For a tousled, just-back-from-the-sea hairstyle, even if you live in the inner-city metropolis, apply a beach hair spray right after washing. A diffuser will give normally-straight hair some light beachy waves, but those who are after a more defined look should use a curling iron then separate the curls with their fingers to create a messy finish.
