Expert Advice: How to Get Model Hair

Expert hair stylist Alan White tells us the secrets behind the model’s hair from the coats shoot in our most recent issue.

“I like to first prep hair by washing it with SachaJuan Hair Cleansing Cream, which will refresh your hair and scalp while leaving it with that second-day feel. This is especially ideal for men’s hair to achieve that worn-in look.


Depending on your hair texture, a different prep product may be required. For medium to thick hair, apply SachaJuan Ocean Mist spray to towel-dried hair for natural movement and volume; it will give you the texture you’d get after spending a day at the beach. If your hair is fine and difficult to style, try using SachaJuan Hair Mousse, which has a medium hold and is the ultimate styling aid to give great volume, body and shine.

Once product is applied, finger dry hair with a blow dryer, pushing it forward and upward so as to maintain any natural movement. At this point we’re trying to create volume through lifting the roots and texture.

Once hair is about 90 per cent dry, use a smallish round bristle brush like the YS Park Tiger series and smooth over the hair texture to give a hint of a curl and a touch of polish.

Leave a little moisture to your hair: don’t over dry it! Hair always looks more natural if you leave it to finally dry on its own, and it allows your hair a moment to develop its own “character “ – the key to modern styling. What you don’t do will give hair its edge!

To finish apply SachaJuan Spray wax to the palms of your hand then work the product through your hair, grooming it into a more exaggerated shape, applying more wax as you need. SachaJaun Spray Wax is an ideal styling and finishing product that imparts texture to any hair type while leaving a lived-in separation and just the right amount of shine. The result is that perfect done/undone look we all strive for.
