The hair honcho is always one step head of the latest trends, techniques and product launches. So, when we spotted a snap of client Em Rata on Jen’s Instagram grid, we asked GLAMOUR’s columnist to give us the lowdown on the ‘tendril updo’ look, which she says is set to be major this summer.
As any avid Kardashian fan knows, the famous family won’t go anywhere without their go-to hairstylist, Jen Atkin.

“I am constantly looking to the past for inspiration. The 90s play a huge role in that, especially with the tendril pieces in the front. So many movies I love have championed that exact look – especially two of my favourites, She’s All That and Pretty Woman.
I believe less is more in a lot of cases. I love when hair looks effortless, natural and somewhat undone. I would say clients are great about collabing with the whole glam squad. I like to find out what the outfit and makeup look is going to be before I decide on the hair.
Tendrils are absolutely back for this season. I think they’re flirty, sexy and frame women’s faces nicely. You can either go a little heavier with them like I did in Emily’s look by grabbing larger pieces right at the part or you can be more playful and grab random pieces right above the ear and further up the hairline.
