Get The Look: Nomaid Gypsy Locks by Eugene Souleiman X PREEN SS19
Loved Eugene Souleiman’s Nomaid Gypsy look for PREEN SS19? He used minimal product in the hair to begin, and instead starting by using a low heat and low power setting to create the base texture for the look. Here’s how to recreate it.
Step By Step
- “Start by drying the hair using the ghd air hairdryer (£99) without any wet product to begin with.
- Twist the hair into a slight S shape to add fuller body and firm texture to the hair, using the hairdryer without a diffuser or nozzle so airflow is sporadic and less precise in airflow.”
- “Next, take a medium sized section of hair above the ear and add a rope braid.
- Use black hat elastic to criss-cross along the top section of the braid, keeping hair tight and working the elastic into the hair.
- Take the rope braid with elastic only half way down the section of hair and then braid the rest of the hair in a simple plait. Tuck the excess hair in front of the ear to create more depth to the look.”
- “Then, scrape the hair back into a low pony – don’t use a brush and instead comb through the hair using your fingers in a rigid motion to add cob-webby and rugged appeal, reminiscent of the travelling gypsy.
- Once the pony is secured, press the ghd platinum+ styler (£175) along the ponytail so hair appears more rigid and stiff.”
For Girls With Longer + Thicker Hair
‘We added a criss-cross with black elastic to the top of the ponytail before flattening out the bottom half of the hair, gently pressing the ghd platinum+ styler across the width to replicate the squashed texture seen at the top of the hair.” – Eugene Souleiman
Using the ghd Platinum+ styler (£175), the world’s first smart styler which contains ultra-zone technology, allowed Eugene to flatten the end of the ponytail without jeopardising the shine or finish of the ends.
