Like the rest of my beauty routine, I’ve always been low maintenance when it comes to my hair. Regular haircuts from a great stylist are key, and a good hairbrush is a necessity (I use the AERIN Large Gold Hairbrush, with natural bristles). The same goes for makeup—the better the tools, the better the results—but I’d never thought of applying makeup techniques to my hair. Recently, I’ve noticed Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, and others using a technique called hair strobing. Contrasting light and dark shades are used to contour or highlight sections of hair in the same way you would accent a cheekbone to amplify the light on your face. It creates a glowing, youthful, and illuminated appearance. The technique, developed in-house by the Andrew Jose team in London, is brilliant, and I think the results are beautiful.
