The body positivity movement, which is currently trending, encourages a new self image defined by self love and natural beauty. A positive attitude towards yourself is best expressed through a natural look. If you still want to ooze glamour on a night out, you don't have to forego all styling. Just remember: less is more. Don't wear too much makeup or use too many styling products. Instead, create a glamorous look that accentuates your natural beauty. Natural and glamorous styling are easy to combine. Achieve a jaw-dropping look in a few simple steps, for instance by wearing your hair down in a naturally glamorous evening hairstyle.

Trend nature look: How to wash your hair
First, wash your hair using a shampoo with natural oils, which provides optimal care for your hair. The first step to a naturally glamorous evening hairstyle is the right care for beautiful shine. Your hair needs all the nutrition it can get, such as Schauma Nature Moments with Moroccan Argan Oil and Macadamia Oil, which provides it with nutrients that make it supple. If you have fine, limp hair, a volume shampoo will help. Volume shampoo usually contains proteins and polymers to strengthen hair and make it appear fuller. Stay away from rich oil shampoos if you have fine hair. Less is more: Don't use too much shampoo. A small amount is enough. For short hair, use a cent size drop, for long hair, a Euro-size dab should be enough. Rinse well to remove any shampoo residue, which can leave hair looking dull. Healthy long hair can be worn down and styled elegantly.
Naturally beautiful: How to care for and protect your hair
Use a conditioner after washing your hair. Comb through from the roots to the ends and gently massage it in, giving your hair some extra TLC. Tip: Go for a conditioner without silicons or artificial colourants and rinse thoroughly.
Before blow-drying your hair, use a heat protection spray, which shields your hair from temperatures up to 220°C. This is particularly important if you will be using a curling or straightening iron. The spray also adds natural shine and prevents frizz, helps set your styling and prevents your hair from drying out.
Naturally glamorous evening hair: Our step by step guide
- Blow dry your hair with a paddle brush. Long open hair is quickly transformed into a glamorous evening style. Model Ymre shows us how in the video above.
- A curling iron adds volume to straight hair. This smart styling tool is a true all-rounder, which conjures instant volume. For this look, wrap hair around the wand in sections and release after a few seconds (depending on the thickness of your hair and the heat of the wand).
- For a shining finish, spritz the completed style with hairspray (like taft Shine) and you're ready to wear your hair down for a glamorous evening out.
- Subtle, restrained makeup underlines an elegant evening hairstyle. All it needs is concealer, mascara and nurturing lip balm. Wear your most beautiful smile and simply be yourself!
