MAKE WAVES… our boho look

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Long-hair lovers, it’s time to dial UP the California dreamin’ vibes with our gorgeous wavy do that’s oh-so perfect for summer. And beyond.

Our Creative Director Luke Pluckrose says: “To create your long, loose waves at home always choose a big tong. The trick is to brush out carefully and use good products to hold your look.”

On colour

Sarah Clarke-Lees of Saks Art Team says: “We added subtle sun-kissed pieces around Emily’s face with our Saks Signature Colours Instalight technique.”
