Leading Australian hair stylist and colourist Jaye Edwards, of EdwardsAndCo, on his top styling tips

HE’S THE MAN BEHIND THE EFFORTLESS, INSTA-FAMOUS WAVES YOU’VE PROBABLY DOUBLE-TAPPED MORE THAN ONCE: JAYE EDWARDS IS AUSTRALIA’S LEADING CELEBRITY HAIR STYLIST AND COLOURIST WITH SALONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. WE SPOKE TO HIM ABOUT WHAT’S TRENDING IN HAIR, HIS TIPS FOR BUILDING VOLUME AND HOW HE’S BOTTLED THE SECRETS FOR PERFECTLY TEXTURED HAIR AT HOME.

What you can expect from the Jaye Haircare range

“The range is your secret weapon to creating signature EdwardsAndCo textured waves at home.”

On his top tips for more voluminous, fuller-looking hair

“For me it’s all about knowing how to get the most of your products. I recommend spraying Volumising Sea Mist directly onto th e roots to create the foundations for volume; I then use the Defrizz and Fatten Cream on mid-lengths and the ends to plump the hair. Always finish off with the Dry Texture Spray all over for volume and grit."

The product he’s most proud of

“It changes all the time, but at the moment I think I am most proud of my newest product, the Defrizz and Fatten Cream. It’s a nourishing cream that fends off flyaways while boosting body and protecting hair from thermal damage,” he explains. “The humidity-resistant formula also works to increase hair volume, promote moisture retention and leave hair smoothed but never flat.”

A hard-working line-up of hair essentials

“Every product in the range has been designed to have a dual purpose, meaning you’re getting more from every product and can use it in multiple ways to achieve your desired effect.”

On what’s trending in hair

“2021 is the year to embrace the natural beauty of your hair. With all the uncertainty that came with 2020, people are working with their natural hair type and texture, rather than against it. We are seeing a lot of shaggy hair styles, with choppy layers and 70’s inspired curtain bangs. These super textured styles have amazing longevity and minimal styling maintenance.”
