Style File: Kim Murray
This year’s Wimbledon is well underway and while most eyes are on centre court, we’re more interested in the hair inspiration to be found in the audience. Kim Murray can usually be found courtside cheering on husband Andy, and her glossy locks always get just as much attention as her (sometimes explicit!) reactions. We take a look back at Kim’s hair history, and give you the tips you need to recreate her classic style.
As the saying goes: if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. This is certainly a mantra that Mrs Murray seems to follow, as her hairstyle has remained largely unchanged over the last few years. Her long layers are often worn loose and slightly tousled, giving a laidback edge to her chic outfits. While Kim’s appeared blonder at some Wimbledons than others, she generally opts for a natural sun-kissed bronde shade, complementing her neutral makeup and tanned skin perfectly.
Along with the gorgeous shade and flattering cut, it’s the bounciness of Kim’s hair that often gets people lusting over her style. A professional blow dry will get you this sort of volume and shine in no time, so for a big occasion (if your husband happens to be playing in Wimbledon, for example) we would recommend booking into one of our blow dry bars.
If you’re going at it alone, though, then there are a few blow-drying must-haves you need. Firstly, a large round brush such as the ghd Ceramic Vented Radial Brush when drying will create unrivalled volume and bounce. Next, the Redken Pillow Proof primer helps to cut down on blow drying time and also keeps your blow dry in place for 24 hours. For the gloss that Kim’s famous for, we also recommend a light misting of label.m Complete Shine Spray to finish the look.
If your hair needs some extra styling to look as effortless as Kim’s, you can use your ghd styler to create loose, flowing waves. Start halfway down your hair for a relaxed look, and brush through once cool to avoid looking over-styled. Take a look at our video tutorial below to get the look. A centre parting is the final touch for Wimbledon-ready hair like Kim’s. Now, where are the strawberries?
