Today we're talking hair! Specifically how I've been styling mine. Questions have been rolling in over social media recently wanting to know how I've been achieving my go to style - easy laid back waves, so today I'm going to give you a step by step guide to literally the simplest hair look ever!
I've also teamed up with TRESemmé for this post as, drumroll please.. I'll be flying out to New York with them on Friday for Fashion Week! Without doubt TRESemmé are a hair staple these days, and I've used three of their best styling products in todays look. Perfect hair isn't always easy, and this season TRESemmé want to inspire and empower you to #WorkIt with their huge range of products to get the look you love, whether that's laid back and lived in, or glammed up super chic! I'll also be going backstage with them for a handful of shows, so expect to see a lot of NYFW content coming your way soon!
This style honestly couldn't be easier to fit into your routine, as it literally takes me ten minutes to wiz through every morning. Prep is key to a quick style though, so I usually start things off the night before when I wash my hair. Volume is the number one for me when it comes to my hair aspirations, and mousse is one of the best products to use for this.
Starting with damp hair I comb through about a golf ball sized amount of the TRESemmé Volume & Lift Mousse with my fingers, concentrating it at the roots. A quick blast of the hair dryer leaves my hair with long-lasting fullness without the sticky texture of a dry spray, as well as all the weightless volume I could ever need!
Don't forget to run whats left in your hands into the rest of your hair too, as this is going to hold in the waves when we come to using heat.
Next, onto the main part of this routine - adding the waves. My tool of choice is a medium tapered curling wand, but you can also get a similar effect with straighteners if you have those to hand. The most important part of achieving lose falling curls is actually how you hold the wand. With much trial and error I've found pointing it down and at a forty-five degree angle (or thereabouts) gives the best curl formation.
Also the way in which you wrap the hair makes a huge difference too. If you twist as you go, things are going to end up on the 80's side of kinky, so make sure you keep the hair flat and straight against the wand. Try not to overthink it though - with practice you'll have the technique down in your sleep.
