Last month I spent the weekend at Lovebox festival in Victoria Park - where I spent a lot of my childhood before we moved out to Essex territory - those were the days! As a guest of KMS California, I was shown the ropes when it comes to getting that festival hair down. For the festival season KMS have created three signature looks; the Rope Pony, the Halo Braid and Relaxed Boho, the latter of which spoke to me straight away. To be honest it's not a far cry from my everyday textured beachy waves, just with a little twist!
First the HAIRPLAY Sea Salt Spray was applied all over the hair, followed by random sections being twisted throughout to create natural waves which were loosened once blow-dried. Various sizes and styles of braid were created through the hair - I particularl loved the miniature fishtail you can see in the photo which really helped to open up my face - and HAIRPLAY Dry Wax was applied to give texture to the style. Finally, a good spray of HAIRSTAY Anti-Humidity Seal ensured my hair looked its best all day.
Since the festival, I've been playing around with a few other KMS California products, namely the FREESHAPE 2-in-1 Styling and Finishing Spray which is great before and after curling the hair, the HAIRPLAY Makeover Spray, which is everything you want from a dry shampoo without the grey, powdery leftovers and HAIRPLAY Dry Touch-Up, which works as more of a dry conditioning spray.
In partnership with Bora Aksu, three different cuffs, inspired by the SS15 collection palette, are available as a GWP on two or more KMS California products. Need some inspiration? Check out KMS ambassador Sam Burnett in action here.
