My Everyday Hair


WARNING: PHOTO HEAVY POST


After the #bbloggers chat on twitter last night (arranged by the lovely Fee) I felt inspired not only to blog, but to do something slightly different so here is my everyday hair. What makes it 'everyday' for me (its quite a lot of effort) is that it lasts for three days in my hair making it incredibly low maintenance. If your thinking of recreating this look bare in mind, my hair is dry to normal and very rarely gets greasy. Its medium to long length and VERY thick. I also recently had it cut so its a little shorter, with soft layers :) Loves it!


Before
Step 1:
Wash hair thoroughly. I like to shampoo twice and I only wash my hair 2/3 times per week. I also put my Umberto Giannini Curl Friends Silky Curls Intensive Mask on for 30 minutes. After rinsing I apply Charles Worthington Hair Healer Leave in Condition. Leave to dry naturally. 

Step 2: 
Generously apply heat protection. I use Charles Worthington Front Row Heat Defence Spritz. I use loads to make sure my hair stays shiny. Brush Through and leave to dry. I like to add a zig zag parting with a rat tail comb. Just pull the hair back, away from the face, make a zig zag motion with your comb.
Step 3:
Divide hair into sections. I also like to turn down the heat on my straighteners (babyliss ones) to give a softer look and hopefully preserve my hair! Start to curl hair by wrapping sections around the straighteners, I'd say about 2 inch sections,(yes thats a lot)and pull the straighteners through the hair. My sections tend to get smaller at the top but I dont curl the fringe area, I just flick it out. 
Step 4:
Once all your hair is curled gently brush through, to create a softer look. Tease the roots at the crown to add more volume. If you like the messy look you can also tease the lengths of the hair, but your style won't last as long. Use John Frieda Stain Shine Finishing Creme to tame frizz and fly aways. Finish with Hairspray. I use Vo5 Strong Hold.

Much Love,

Beautiful hun, I tend to do mine like this, nicer than simply straight as my face is quite long, so it adds a bit of volume. xxx

Your hair is fantastic! I need to learn how to curl or wave my hair with straightners properly!

Love it! I have a very similar cut, although my hair gets greasy roots and dry ends :( I will have to try this though :)xx

Your everyday hair far surpasses even my snazzy "I'm going out" hair. Jealous.

Holy God, its gorgeous! I'd love to have the patience to do something like that, but always get bored and leave the back straight! You look gorgeous! x

Looks gorgeous! I usually do the same thing if I wear my hair curly but the style never lasts long since I have pin straight hair naturally.

@Tat thank you :) x

@FromGemWithLove thanks :) Yeh, its such a flattering look right? I hate it when my hair is straight and flat!

@Hayley thank you :)

@EllysMakeupbag its really easy, you just need to practise! Try watching some youtube tutorials

@Computergirl if you get greasy roots just use dry shampoo on day too :) I use it to lift my hair and it tends to go flat!

@daisychain haha I love you for saying snazzy, its my favourite word!! you should try this out, it doesnt take too long and then we can both have snazzy hair!

 
At May 16, 2011 , Blogger Onna said...

@Julie because I do it in such big sections it doesnt take too long... I also lack patience but I've got better :) x

@Elodie have you tried scrunching your hair first as its drying. Or try pinning the curls until your finished the whole head, leave for 10 minutes then remove - the curls should hold better x

Oh hun this is lovely! Such wonderful hair you have sweety! :) Mightily jealous! ;) The Charles Worthington Hair Healer sounds fab, I just worry that too much conditioning will make my hair look lank :/ What does the Umberto Giannini Curl Friends Silky Curls Intensive Mask do hun?

Love Aysh xoxo

stunning hair, you've mastered the 'tousled look'. Can you doing this look with straighteners or would you stick to curling tongs? x

You have literally perfected the 'lauren conrad' curls, very jelous :-) x x
