“A tendril is ideal for softening any up-do,” explains TONI&GUY international artistic director, Philipp Haug. “Hair pulled off the face can look severe and strong, but adding some tendrils round the face gives it a soft and feminine finish. It makes hair up a lot more wearable for people of all ages. And the great thing is, it suits everyone.
The key to making it modern is to leave a good amount of hair out – you want it to make a statement rather than be wispy. It’s best on short and mid-length hair – long hair can look limp and doesn’t flatter the face. A soft wave or kink is also important so it doesn’t look like curtains and appears to be part of the overall look.”
Philipp’s tips for wearing 2020 tendrils
1 The key is wearing them with a centre parting so it gives the style some asymmetry and a strong look.
2 If you want something softer, move the parting to the side.
3 Don’t overload the hair with product – a simple spritz of hairspray is enough. Otherwise it will start to look crunchy and dated.
4 Tendrils can be dressed up or dressed down – soft and wavy is perfect for a feminine finish, while stronger sections are ideal for those looking for something more directional.
