The hair flip: a flippin' good hairstyle!

Over-worked beauty is a thing of the past. Current trends, from make-up to fashion to hairstyles, all revolve around natural-looking, effortless style. Meet...the hair flip. But don't be fooled, sometimes there's more than meets the eye to seemingly uncomplicated looks.

So where do you start, and how do you make it stay?

Loose, natural-looking lengths


It all starts with using the right shampoo and conditioner. We recommend the anti-breakage Inforcer shampoo and conditioner from the Serie Expert collection, which strengthens your locks and leaves you with shinier, detangled hair after every wash. Use a soft-bristled brush to avoid damaging the lengths before styling. If you feel your hair needs more intense help, ask your hair stylist about Powermix by Serie Expert - tailored masks that are formulated according to your needs, from nutrition to repair, strength, color-protection or smoothness.


Invisible, textured hold on top


Next comes the hair flip. On half-dried hair, take a pea-sized amount of a styling gel like Fix Move by Tecni.ART, rub between your palms and sweep the front section of hair up and over your head towards the ear using one hand, while using the other to lightly flatten the opposite side. A comb can help give more definition to the flip. Finish off this effortless look by blow drying to 90% to prevent moisture loss. The great thing about the Fix Move gel is that you can play and re-sculpt your hair as much as you like, ensuring you get exactly the hair flip you deserve!


Styling the whole look


If you're working the hair flip, why not embrace its roots, and showcase your own, with a Nineties-inspired outfit contrasted with a contemporary beauty look? We love this vintage sports jacket worn with a chic blouse and barely-there make-up to highlight a simple blush rose lip: perfect for a multi-seasonal, go-anywhere look that's bang on trend.
