Neptune Waves 

Neptune Waves, as the name suggests, are all about channelling an ethereal, sea-kissed vibe to your hair. This style is perfect for those who appreciate the beauty of relaxed, flowing waves with an air of natural elegance. Celebrities like Beyonce, Gigi Hadid, and Serena Williams have been spotted rocking this chic look, which has garnered a considerable fan following. 

How to Achieve Neptune Waves with the Bellissima Beach Waves Styler 2 in 1: 

  • Prepare Your Hair: Start by ensuring your hair is clean and completely dry. Neptune Waves work best on fresh, textured hair. 
  • Section Your Hair: Divide your hair into manageable sections. Smaller sections will create more defined waves, while larger sections will result in softer waves. 
  • Start Styling: Take one section of your hair and clamp it with the Bellissima Beach Waves Styler 2 in 1, starting closer to the root and working your way down. The Beach Waves Styler has a unique, wavy design, making it perfect for creating Neptune Waves effortlessly. 
  • Twist and Release: After clamping your hair, gently twist the styler as you move it down the length of your hair. This twisting motion helps create the fluid, stretched-out waves associated with Neptune Waves. 
  • Repeat: Continue this process for all sections of your hair until you achieve the desired look. Remember to alternate the direction in which you twist the Beach Waves Styler for a more natural, beachy appearance. 
  • Set and Finish: Once you’ve waved all your hair, let the waves cool and set for a few seconds. Finish with a light-hold hairspray to ensure your Neptune Waves last all day. 

The Veil 

The Veil hair trend is all about sophistication and minimalism. Much like a timeless tailored jacket, this style features XXL-length hair immaculately straightened on both sides of a precisely centred parting. It’s a classic, yet versatile look that never goes out of style. As seen on the likes of Naomi Campbell, Olivia Rodrigo, Beyonce, and Selena Gomez. By using the Bellissima Creativity Infrared Straightener, you can effortlessly recreate this look. It’s a timeless hairstyle that’s versatile enough to complement both casual and formal outfits. 

Recreating the Veil Hair Trend with Bellissima Creativity Infrared Straightener: 

  • Prep Your Hair: Start with clean, dry hair. Ensure your hair is completely straight before beginning this style. 
  • Create a Centre Part: Use a fine-toothed comb to create a precise centre part in your hair. This is crucial for achieving the signature Veil look. 
  • Section Your Hair: Divide your hair into manageable sections, securing each section with clips. This will make it easier to work through your hair systematically. 
  • Straighten in Sections: Starting on one side of your head, take a small section of hair and use a straightener such as the Bellissima Creativity Infrared Straightener to smooth and straighten the hair. Begin at the roots and slowly work your way down the length, keeping the straightener parallel to your head. Repeat this process for all sections. 
  • Repeat on the Other Side: Mirror the same straightening process on the other side of your head, ensuring that both sides are immaculately styled straight. 
  • Final Touch: After you’ve straightened both sides, apply a light, anti-frizz serum or hair spray to maintain the sleek and polished look of The Veil. 

Voluminous Birkin Bangs 

The Voluminous Birkin Bangs hair trend is a revival of a classic, timeless look that exudes an iconic, effortlessly cool vibe. Inspired by Jane Birkin, the ultimate influencer of the ’60s and the muse behind the legendary Hermes Birkin bag, this trend celebrates her signature swishy fringe. These bangs are the epitome of chic and have made a triumphant return, gracing social media feeds across the seasons. 

To capture the essence of Voluminous Birkin Bangs, the key is to embrace the natural, undone charm. You can achieve this look using the Bellissima Air Wonder 8 in 1 Hot Air Styler oval brush.

Recreating Voluminous Birkin Bangs with Bellissima Air Wonder 8 in 1 Hot Air Styler: 

  • Prep Your Hair: Start with clean, dry hair. Make sure your hair is freshly washed and completely dry before you begin styling. 
  • Create the Bangs: Use a fine-toothed comb to part your hair to the side, just like the iconic Birkin bangs. This deep side part is essential for achieving the signature look. 
  • Begin Styling: Take sections of your bangs and start by wrapping it around Bellissima’s Air Wonder 8 in 1 Hot Air Styler oval brush. Hold for a few seconds to add volume and shape to your bangs. Repeat this step for all sections of your bangs. 
  • Fluff and Swish: After styling, use your fingers to gently run through your bangs, creating a bit of movement. This step is crucial for achieving that effortless, swishy fringe reminiscent of Jane Birkin’s signature look. 
  • Set and Finish: Once you’ve achieved the desired volume and movement, finish with a light hold hairspray to maintain the shape.
