Learn How to Get the Coolest Hairstyles From Davines


Just because we are in the colder months doesn’t mean we can’t daydream about the hairstyles we’re yearning to rock once the flowers start blooming once again. Hair expert Joseph DiMaggio for Davines partnered with KUHO and KITH for New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018 and it has inspired us to try something unique here at Cliché. Read on for hair inspiration and tips on how to achieve these looks directly from the master himself.



Inspiration: Multifunctional lifestyle brand and progressive retail establishment KITH is bringing sleek to a whole new level. KITH thinks outside the box for both men and women by providing streetwear style with influences from soccer, skiing, basketball, and various high-impact sports. Looking both cool and stylish has never been easier..

Look 1: Sleek Through the Streets

  1. Starting with dry hair, apply vigorous amounts of Davines Your Hair Assistant Blowdry Primer to the roots, and then swipe and feather out from the midshaft to ends. The swipe and feather technique means not spraying in a concentrated area, but making sure to swipe from right to left or from roots to end, spraying to ensure the product is distributed evenly.
  2. Blow dry hair straight off the center part and finish with Davines Your Hair Assistant Definition Mist.

Look 2: Sport Braid

  1. Repeat steps in Look 1.
  2. Pull hair straight back into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic.
  3. Apply vigorous amounts of Davines Your Hair Assistant Definition Mist and a little bit of Your Hair Assistant Blowdry Primer through the lengths of the ponytail.
  4. Create a tight three-strand low braid, leaving out a 1” section of hair, and secure with an elastic on the end.
  5. Wrap the 1” section around the ponytail base to cover elastic and pin in place.
  6. Finish using Davines This Is a Medium Hairspray to lock look in.

Get The Look: KUHO SS18

Inspiration: In a fast-paced and hectic world, we need a moment or two to pause, relax, and enjoy life. That’s where KUHO comes in. KUHO’s Spring/Summer 2018 line derives meaning from the art of slowing down, a perfect match for this hair look consisting of various textures such as an edged crimp and relaxed waves giving off care-free vibes.

Look 3: Lived-in Leisure

  1. Prep clean, wet hair by lightly misting with Davines Your Hair Assistant Blow Dry Primer. Blow dry smooth with a round brush; it doesn’t need to be perfectly straight or even.
  2. In 1-2” sections, apply Davines This Is A Medium Hairspray throughout the length to add body.
  3. Use interchangeable techniques with a flat-iron and assorted curling irons to add in texture. Various techniques include:
  4. Vertical twisted barrel curl (option to flat iron out or not)
  5. A flat “S” wave that is created by weaving the hair section through a flat iron in an “S” pattern and moving/twisting the length as the flat iron moves down
  6. Crimping, using the hard edge of a flat iron, in alternating motions
  7. Wrapping the mid-section of the length around a curling wand and combing out
  8. Finger-comb all hair and finish with a light misting of Davines Your Hair Assistant Definition Mist, followed by Davines This Is A Dry Texturizer.

Recreate These Runway Looks by Cutler Salon


Spring/Summer NYFW 2018 is undoubtedly a time when all fashion lovers rejoice, but this time we have our eyes on those gorgeous locks models are sporting down the runway. Hairstylists for Cutler Salon show us how to recreate some of these looks and we couldn’t be happier to try these looks ourselves. One thing is for sure: hair has never looked this good before.

Cowgirl Side Braid at Anna Sui x INC
Linh Nguyen shows us how to take our side braid game to the next level this season. Not only does the cowgirl side braid look glamorous on just about anyone, but this tousled ‘do creates a look that’s effortless and sexy at the same time.

  1. First, prep hair using the Cutler Protectant Treatment Spray. Blow dry and set hair using Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Hairspray.
  2. Depending on your hair’s natural texture, take horizontal sections of hair using either a 1 ¼” or 1” iron and curl hair vertically. When done, top it off with Redken Fashion Waves 07 for a more collapsed looked or Redken Wind Blown for more body and volume.
  3. Add a touch of Fatboy Sea Salt Pomade to break-up pieces of hair for long lasting curls.
  4. Once you’re done curling and ready to make the braid, sweep hair to one side and create a deep side part on the opposite side.
  5. Start at the nape of your neck and loosely braid hair into a three-strand braid. Bring it forward so that it’s sitting at the front of your chest.
  6. Time for final touches! Start pulling out some pieces, and as needed, spray them with Redken Wind Blown 05 and Fatboy Sea Salt Pomade for piecey strands and extra hold.

Naughty Knot at Badgley Mischka
Reminiscent of the 1950s and 1960s bouffant, Peter Gray’s playful spin on a classic hairstyle serves as a reminder that hair can dress up any casual outfit to be a tad more polished.

  1. Start with damp hair and spray Cutler Protectant Treatment Spray and Redken Full Frame 07 evenly throughout locks.
  2. Apply a small amount of Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray around the crown area at the roots. This will add volume, necessary to create a bouffant.
  3. Turn head upside down and blow dry hair while finger combing. You’ll achieve maximum texture by using your fingers instead of a brush.
  4. Starting at mid-length, curl hair all the way to the ends in 1-2 sections using a 1 ½” curling iron.
  5. Then spray Redken Wind Blown 05 over the surface of hair to add body.
  6. Part your hair down the middle and then pull back hair over ears and tie a double knot (single knot if hair is shorter). Leave ends loose and tousled.
  7. Pin the knot low and use your fingertips to add a small amount of Redken Powder Grip 03
  8. Take a comb and use the end of it to pull pieces at the crown. This will create a more modern take on the classic bouffant style.
  9. Use Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Hairspray for maximum hold.

Optimized-Step 1
Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow primer to your eyelid and blend it up to the crease of your eye. This will create a smooth surface for your lid and allow the eyeshadow to go on evenly.
Optimized-Step 2
Step 2: Use a flat eyeshadow brush and apply a dark taupe shade to your eye.
Optimized-Step 3
Step 3: Apply a matte black or dark brown shadow in the outer corner of your eye. Less is more, so just add a small amount of color to achieve the depth you want. You can always add more, but you can’t take it back once you’ve gone too far. Blend a soft matte peach or nude shade in the crease of your eye with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Pick up the shadow color with only one side of the brush to avoid applying too much eyeshadow all over your eyelid.
Optimized-Step 4
Step 4: Smudge black eyeliner just above your eyelashes on the top of your lid and line your bottom waterline. Smudge the liner into your lash line with a fine-pointed smudging brush.
Optimized-Step 5
Step 5: Finish the look with your favorite mascara on your top and bottom lashes.

The Easiest Knotted Updo Tutorial You’ll Ever Try


We’ve all had those days where we’re looking for a hairstyle that’s cute for those jeans and a t-shirt type of day, yet, a hairstyle that is also a functional transition from day to night. “Having a hairstyle that can transition from day to night is always a must-have in our beauty regimen. This can literally be worn nearly anywhere and is the perfect everyday hairstyle!” says Melissa Cook, a contributor from Latest-Hairstyles.com. As of late, we’ve had the privilege of being introduced to the easiest knotted updo tutorial you’ll ever try thanks to Cook.
“I am excited to share this ridiculously easy knotted updo tutorial with you today. For once it pays to have your hair all knotty because this hairstyle is done by actually tying it,” says Cook.
Step 1:
Knotted 1
Begin with a part on the right side, then separate off a square section of hair from the part down to eye level.
Step 2:
Knotted 2
Pick up a small section of hair next to the part and divide it into two halves.
Step 3:
Knotted 4
Cross the back half over the front so it creates a small space between the two strands.
Step 4:
Knotted 4
Wrap the tail through the hole created so the hair forms half a knot.
Step 5:
Knotted 5
Pull it tight so it lays against the head and pick up small sections of hair, adding them into each strand.
Step 6:
Knotted 6
Create a second knot by crossing the back strand over the front, then looping the end through the hole before pulling it tight again.
Step 7:
Knotted 7
Repeat step 6, bringing in hair and tying it into knots.
 Step 8:
Knotted 8
Continue tying knots until it reaches the end of the strands, then tie it off with a clear elastic band and pin it against the back of the head.
Step 9:
Knotted 9
Pick up a two-inch section of hair at the center of the back of the head and wrap the strand around your fingers. Twist the fingers counter-clockwise so the hair forms a little knot.
Step 10:
Knotted 10
Secure the knot in place with hair pins.
Step 11:
Knotted 11
Next, pick up another two-inch section of hair to the right of the first knot in step 9.
Step 12:
Knotted 12
Wrap this hair into another knot and pin it in place.
Step 13:
Knotted 13
Next, pick up a section of hair below the second knot and create a third knot, securing it against the head with hair pins.
Step 14:
Knotted 14
Then take a section of hair to the left of the first knot and wrap it into another knot, securing it with hair pins.
Step 15:
Knotted 15
Finally, pick up the last section of hair and create one last knot, securing it with pins.

This year’s collection was an epitome of Patti Smith’s memoir “Just Kids” — showcasing bohemian inspiration from New York from the late 60s to early 70s. Elements of the rock n’ roll epic era are seen within being inspired from Smith’s own personal style and other idols including Grace Slick, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin. Mix and matched prints, velvet, stud and fringe details, leather jackets and pants, chiffon dresses and more create a beautiful collection that all of us have to admit we want in our wardrobes.

Sherri Hill Fashion Week Hair Tutorial


Sherri Hill‘s new 2015 Collection has been getting rave reviews since its presentation at The Plaza Hotel on February 19, 2015. From pink and red sweetheart ball gowns to mermaid flared skirts and white, lacy evening dresses, there was much to be coveted. Perhaps what pulled the whole collection together flawlessly was the hair, inspired by classic Hollywood glamour to compliment the romantic designs.
“I wanted to create a romantic updo using braids with a soft swirled rosette,” said Lead Stylist Tammy Mixon for BioSilk Haircare. “It was the perfect look to compliment Sherri’s 2015 collection.”
SherriHillTutorial2To get this look, begin by applying BioSilk Silk Therapy Lite to the ends of your hair, then sectioning off the fringe area in a triangle with a center part, clipping it back. Next, spiral curl the top of your head using DURA Chi 1″ Curling Iron and backcomb the crown area, making sure to spray the roots with BioSilk Natural Hold Hairspray for added volume.
Next, direct your hair on the left side of your head back loosely and braid a three-strand braid adding hair from the nape only. Continue through to just the center of your nape, then do the same on the right side, leaving 1-2 inches braided.
“[Be sure to] turn the braid backward in circling form, creating a rosette shape,” instructs Mixon. This step is very important to achieving that romantic look!
After securing this with pins, loosely curl the fringe area backward with the DURA CHI 1” Curling Iron, top with BioSilk Firm Hairpsray to hold, and finish by lighting spraying BioSilk Shine On for a fine polish. Then you’re set!
Be sure to shop the BioSilk line at Farouk.com.

How to Get Gwen Stefani’s Grammys Hair


Gwen Stefani turned heads last night at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, and not just because of her intricate black Versace jumpsuit or her flawless skin (seriously, does this woman age?), but because of her rocker-chic up-do!
“[Gwen Stefani’s] disheveled French twist can be as casual a look as you like, to dress up or simply wear slightly disheveled to tone down your evening wear,” said Cutler/Redken Styling and Grooming Expert Jenny Balding. Gwen Stefani’s hair tied her look all together and really made her stand out on the red carpet amongst a sea of loose, wavy locks and bobs!

1) Start with day old hair as you’ll have some texture in your hair and it will be easier to manage
2) Use dry shampoo to really boost the texture of your roots (Redken Pillow Proof dry shampoo is excellent). Spray throughout your roots and even the mid-lengths to create body and texture. Shake through with your fingers.
3) Use a light hairspray for a little hold–Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Hairspray works best, as it is a versatile spray. Mist over all and shake up with your hands to really create body and movement.
4) Section out the crown and front area and pin to one side.
5) Sweep the sides and back together and then twist upwards and pin. Make sure to use hairpins (U shaped pins) so they can really anchor the hair.
6) Take the top section , brush lightly, then let it drop gently to one side
7) Loosen the hairline a little with your fingers to work suits your face shape.
8) To finish, add a little shine by misting Redken Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over–this is very light, but gives just the right amount shine you need.

Snake Braid Hair Tutorial


Bored of your usual hairstyle and want to add a little bit of pizazz for the new year? Well, you’re in luck! Latest-Hairstyles.com guest contributor Jennie Kay has the perfect braid for you that’s super chic but also super easy to replicate: the snake braid. “If you can do a basic three-strand braid, you can master this chic braid in no time,” Kay says. Read on for step-by-step instructions on how to create this beautiful hairstyle!
The Snake Braid Hair Tutorial
1. Create a large diagonal forward section of hair behind your ear.
2. Split the section into three equal subsections. Apply a bit of pomade to your hand (about half the size of a dime) and smooth out each section. This will help make a smooth, clean braid. Begin braiding (a basic, three-strand braid) this section, keeping medium tension on the braid. You do not want this braid too tight or too loose.
3. Braid almost all the way down to the ends of your hair, leaving one to two inches left below where you stop the braid.
4. Take two of the sections and combine them to make one larger section (you will now only have two sections, one small and one large).
5. Take the smaller section and carefully slide it up the braid.
6. Keep sliding the smaller section up to the top of the braid.
7. Now slide the section back down to create a looser “s” pattern braid.
8. Wrap the snake braid around the back of your head and pin in place. Spray with a medium hold hairspray to add extra hold and tame any flyaways.
*TIP* Lift a small section of hair up and pin your snake braid below it. Drop the hair down so that it conceals where you pinned the braid in place.
