georgina mollard georgina murphy Fashion L OOK out ladies, the build-up is coming. And we all know what that means frizz. Im already panicked. Even the thought of the wet season has me frantically looking on Pinterest trying to come up with ways to tame my unruly mane. Hairstyles like plaits, fishtails anything really that will pin my hair down to stop the frizz and make it immovable. I still havent got over my first wet season experience here. I spent a full hour curling my hair to perfection and half an hour doing my makeup. I was feeling pretty good leaving the house. Then I got into to Shenanigans, had one drink, then went to the bathroom. I should never have looked in the mirror. My face looked like a melted gumboot and my hair looked like I had put my finger in a socket. The image stills haunts me. To smooth everyday frizz I use two pumps of Wella Luxe Oil but I have really thick hair. If you have finer hair, use one pump on towel dried hair. It is a Keratin based treatment and costs $36 from hair salon. Sebastian Whipped Creme is a moisturising lightweight crme for all hair types. Its great for unruly curly/wavy hair, and costs around $20. But wet season frizz is something completely different to regular unruliness. It seems no matter how much luxe oil I use, my hair could not be managed. But Ive discovered something that will help me fight the frizz this wet season. Turns out I can forget about plaiting my hair every day. My hairstylist has advised me that Kerasilk hair treatment is the way to go when taming my tresses. Kerasilk is a long-lasting smoothing service that leaves your hair silky for up to five months. This keratin-based treatment will not only make your hair smoother, it will also nourish your hair by boosting hair protein levels. This treatment can is bespoke. It can be customised to your hair type. If you have curly hair you wont lose your curls or waves, it will just give you smoother, more manageable hair. It reduces styling time significantly, your blow-dries and styling will last longer. This is exactly what we all want in the humidity beautiful hair without the hassle. Treatment time is two to three hours, depending on length and thickness of hair. And after your treatment, you get to take home a Goldwell shampoo and conditioner to maintain the treatment. It is not a chemical service, more a smoothing treatment. Prices range from $150 to $450 depending on your hair length and thickness. If you are thinking of having this treatment, book a free consultation with your hair stylist. This will allow you to ask any questions and voice your concerns, and your stylist will be able to advise you on how Kerasilk can benefit your hair type. F ASHION perhaps isnt a word typically linked to the job of being a dad, so, after conducting some research*, Ive decided the key word is definitely function. Or maybe, thats just because my dad is an engineer who is into roads, bridges, racehorses and board meetings (amongst other things) and possesses far more practical dress-sense than his daughters. This Fathers Day, if youre planning on gifting dad something for his wardrobe, you may like to consider the below as your guide. ON-TREND DAD David Beckham is the obvious choice for inspiration here, however, I guess he could fit into many a category. If your dad is Beckham-eqsue in his styling, you can get away with buying anything from sportswear to designer duds. If youre in the Top End, think smart T-shirts (there is such a thing) and dress shoes. In the desert, look to puffer vests (for the desert chill, not the ski season). SPORTY DAD This is a safe area to shop. Look for new running shorts, runners or gym towels. HIGH-VIS DAD The tradie version of a handbag: the smoko bag (Esky/chill bag) CASUAL DAD T-shirts sans holes, shorts, pyjamas with crocodiles or Barramundi print. STEREOTYPICAL-TERRITORY DAD A fishing shirt from Fishing and Outdoor World, what else. BUSINESS DAD Cufflinks, tie and shirt combos that actually match, polish for his RM Williams boots. OUTDOOR DAD Sunhat (non-daggy), new Akubra, cargo pants that zip off into shorts. PRACTICAL DAD Socks, jocks, singlets for the wet season, Tshirts for the dry, a croc-skin belt from Crocosaurus Cove for a touch of Territory. NON-NT DAD If your dad doesnt live in the Territory, he might need something a little more wintry, go for shoes that arent thongs. THINGS TO NOT BUY FOR DAD Budgie smugglers. * Googling celebrity dads and asking males who have children Territory rig HAIR-RAISING HUMIDITY Its coming to that time of year when taming your tresses becomes a losing battle but there are some products that can help you fight the frizz emma crilly Beauty DUDS FOR DADS Struggling for what to buy your dad for Fathers Day?
