How to Get Breezy, Laid-back Leading Lady Waves

What a difference a week makes: Early in her career, Mara Roszak went from giving $5 beauty-school haircuts to styling Sarah Michelle Gellar's hair for a premiere, thanks to an intro from a friend. "I'd never done anybody's hair except my friends and family and beauty-school customers," Roszak says. "After the premiere, Sarah hired me for her entire press tour. " Thirteen years later, Roszak, now L'Oréal Paris's celebrity hairstylist, creates breezy waves on celeb fans such as Emma Stone, Emily Blunt, Kate Mara, and Zoe Saldana. "I never want to put a hairstyle on someone," she says. "I like the person to show through."

You've taken some clients gradually shorter over the past year. Is the slow shift strategic? If you start with a longer bob, just below the shoulder, you can rock that for a couple of months. Then you map out your next style, which is maybe a collarbone bob. Ease your way into it. It's a little bit less shocking.

Does texture affect how short you can go?

I never want someone at home fighting with their hair to try to make it look the way the stylist did. The whole point of having short hair is that you want to be free of the battle. So if you have thicker hair, you definitely need to put texture into your cut. If you have curly hair, you'll need to get a cut with blended layers that will keep it from going too round.

What's your secret to those loose, tousled waves?

When hair is about 70 percent dry, I'll prep it in either one big braid or two pigtail braids. Not too tight, not perfect. You want the braid to start the shape of a natural wave. And then hit it with a dryer to set the hair into that form. Then, before it's totally dry, I take the braids out and rough-dry the rest of the way.

Are certain hairstyles more photogenic than others?

One of the most photogenic hairstyles, and also one of the most difficult, is the perfect old-Hollywood wave. It reads beautifully on camera because the waves are shiny.

Can I do this at home?

Yes, but you have to treat it like sculpture. Wrap the hair around the curler in the same direction all around the head, let it sit, then spray it and brush it out. Then you remold it with the brush, clip it, spray it, then let it sit again. Once you take the clips out, you want it to be almost a fixed structure. You really don't want it to move.

And then to get that shine?

Make sure you're blowing the hair out pretty and smooth first. Shine products help, but trying new ones can be scary for a hairstylist. If you over-oil, you can't get it out, and you have to start all over by shampooing. So I prefer light shine products, almost like hairsprays. I'm obsessed with the L'Oréal Glossing Mist since it just mists out. When the flash bounces off the shine on the hair, it creates a glimmer effect. It's pretty wild.

Road-rage victim unable to walk

A motorist who suffered torn tendons and a broken knee-cap in a road-rage attack will be unable to walk for at least six months, police have said.

Witnesses are being sought by West Midlands Police after the 54-year-old man was assaulted in the Alumwell area of Walsall.

The victim, who has not been named, was assaulted by two men after getting out of his Nissan Micra when a dark green Renault Clio blocked Primley Avenue at about 2pm on June 21.

Investigating officer Pc Davina Thorp said: "This was a vicious assault which has left the victim with horrific injuries, meaning he is unlikely to be able to walk for at least the next six months."

The driver of the Clio is described as white, in his late 20s, around 6ft and of slim build with short, fair hair.

The other attacker is described as black, in his early 20s, around 5ft 9ins and of medium build. He had very short hair and was carrying a drawstring bag.

Anyone who witnessed the assault is urged to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
