Hair Of The Day – Tousled Curls!

I recently got even more cut off my hair and am loving it! It’s so easy to style and maintain. Today I decided to sport some soft, barely there tousled curls! Stay tuned for more hairstyle posts in the coming weeks!

All I did was wash my hair with my Alberto Balsam ‘coconut and lychee’ shampoo which I absolutely love as it works so well and is really affordable at £1! Then I sprayed on some of my Dove ‘oxygen moisture root lift spray’ which gives my limp my hair a lot of volume and I applied some argan oil to the ends. After this I took sections around one and a half inches wide and used my GHD straightners to curl the hair in varying directions for a more natural look. After around 5 minutes of letting the curls set I tipped my head upside down and ran my fingers through to loosen them up and sprayed some hairspray to help the style last. Quick and easy – perfect for everyday!

What do you think? Do any of you have any tips for styling short hair?

How To: Easy Overnight Waves/Texture

When searching the internet for easy ways to get curls in my hair overnight I came across this extremely easy trick to add gorgeous curls into any hair type! My hair is long, straight and flat so it can be a challenge to get any sort of texture in it without using hot tools – which takes forever! However, since I started twist braiding my hair while it’s damp I haven’t had to curl my hair for weeks and just wake up with amazing natural volume and casual soft waves.

All I do is part my damp hair into two sections and then tightly twist braid it and put it into two buns at the nape of my neck. If you aren’t sure how to do this, follow this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsGuWokn47A

The next morning all I need to do gently undo the braids and buns and add some hairspray, brilliant if you’re in a rush!

The waves also look amazing thrown into a high ponytail (as seen below).

Weekly Favourite

Each week I’m going to tell you about my favourite thing; whether it be a person, product or something else.

My favourite this week is Charles Worthington Front Row Rough and Tousled Salt Spray.

When I was abroad I loved the effect the sea had on my hair, so when I returned back to England I wanted to find something that would do the same thing. After searching through a lot of reviews I came across Charles Worthington’s Front Row Rough and Tousled Salt Spray and thought I would give it a try.

I’ve been using it almost every day since; all I do is spray it through damp hair, tie it up into a messy bun and wait until it dries. Then viola; gorgeous, wavy, natural looking hair.

It also only costs £5.49 at Boots which is great as you don’t need to use a lot.

Have any of you tried it? What are your thoughts?
