Direct from the runways of NYFW to your very own tresses, we’ve teamed up with the guys at Prema in Surry Hills to show you how to master the Glunge look.

So what the hell is Glunge?

Glunge is what happens when glam meets grunge, think lived in loose waves. Glunge is essentially a way to look glam, effortlessly, as though you literally #wokeuplikethis.

Which celebs are serial Glungers?

If you follow the likes of Kendall Jenner, Rita Ora or Kate Moss on the socials you would have seen these ladies sporting a Glunge look or two. Most recently at NYFW designers such as Alexander Wang, Tadashi Shoji and Nicopanda sent their models down the catwalk sporting this look.

Why you’ll love it

For anyone who struggles with the doing part of doing your hair, Glunge is pretty much going to become your go to style, so you can thank us for changing your lives later. It turns the undone, into the effortlessly chic, and actually gets better as your day goes on.

One Look, Four Ways

We love a bit of versatility, not to mention longevity, in our hairstyles and Glunge lends itself to some mighty fine creations perfect for whatever your social calendar throws at you and as long as you can scrunch and tussle you’ll be well on your way to becoming a master in no time.

Signature Glunge

  1. Prep hair with Tigi Catwalk Root Lift Spray on the roots and Tigi Catwalk Bodifying Spray on the mid-lengths at ends.
  2. Blowdry hair at the crown with a round brush to create volume, then scrunch dry mid lengths and ends to dry in product and great a messy, uneven texture. 
  3. Create a deep side part and using bobby pins, pin hair back on the temple.
  4. Using Tigi Session Series Catwalk Hair Spray, create more height and texture by using your fingers to separate and pull hair.

Tip: Up your Glunge game and crisscross your bobby pins to create a cool effect.

Glunge Pony

  1. Prep hair with Tigi Catwalk Root Lift Spray on the roots and Tigi Catwalk Bodifying Spray on the mid-lengths and ends, then scrunch hair dry until product is completely dried in.
  2. Using fingers, rake hair back into a ponytail below the crown.
  3. Pull the ponytail in separate directions to create height and width.
  4. Using your fingers, pull out small parts around the face to add texture. 
  5. Finish with Session Series Catwalk Spray.

Glunge Bun

  1. Prep hair with Tigi Catwalk Root Lift Spray on the roots and Tigi Catwalk Bodifying Spray on the mid-lengths and ends, then scrunch hair dry until product is completely dried in. 
  2. Rake all hair back using your fingers, but don't be perfect! Remember, this is the beauty of this look.
  3. Tie hair into a ponytail just below the occipital bone (kind of where your skull ends and your neck  begins) using an elastic. 
  4. Separate hair into two sections and tie a knot as you would with shoelaces. Pull ends of hair to secure tightness. Depending on length of hair you can knot again or for shorter hair just one knot. Secure the knot with U pins. 
  5. Finish with a little shine spray to the ends of the hair to create contrast in texture. 

Glunge Braid

  1. Prep hair with Tigi Catwalk Root Lift Spray on the roots and Tigi Catwalk Bodifying Spray on the mid-lengths and ends, then scrunch hair dry until product is completely dried in.
  2. Using fingers, rake all hair to one side. 
  3. Starting from above the ear, French braid all the way down the ends, trying not the be too tight or perfect, tie off with an elastic or back comb the ends to hold the braid in and prevent from separating. 
  4. Using your thumb and index fingers, rouge the braid to slightly separate and give messy texture.
  5. Finish with Tigi Session Series Catwalk Hairspray.
