The Downtown Wave Autumn/Winter 2016
The Downtown Wave was the perfect cool-casual hairstyle to complement the
deconstructed feel of the Monse AW16 show for New York Fashion Week. Orlando Pita, TRESemmé New York Fashion Week Ambassador, described this style as “celebrating individuality through natural texture and soft lines,” a sentiment echoed in the ruched
crushed velvet, puffball pinstripes and satin shirt-dresses sent down the Monse runway.
Tailoring with a twist was a key theme running through this collection – where workwear
and eveningwear merged to unique effect – and The Downtown Wave, worn with a side-
swept side part, kept the look edgy and imperfect.
Messy movement through the length of the hair makes this an easy hairstyle to take from catwalk to casual, and we spied it on the street worn with an effortlessly cool ‘running
around town’ leather jacket thrown over a shirt combo. We saw our street style spot wear
her Downtown Wave with a slightly off-center part, showing you can rock this wave
whichever way you prefer.
Forget perfect and polished hairstyles Open in new window – a sassy Downtown Wave is a quick and easy route
to hair that looks effortless and amazing. All you need is a blow dryer and a flat iron to wave goodbye to try-hard tresses. Here’s how it’s done:
