Volumous Curls

This is my absolute favourite way to wear my hair, big and bouncy curls! I want to say 'Victoria's Secret' hair but it seems so cliche and clearly, I'm no VS Angel.

To achieve this hairstyle I spritz a bit of dry shampoo into the roots for volume (backcomb for a night out) and then I curl my hair with my wide paddle GHD straighteners, because these tend to give a bigger, looser curl. Although you can get the same curls with a thinner straightener but not twisting as much. I always make sure I curl away from my face because it's much more flattering. I also make sure that the curls aren't to uniform... starting from different parts of the hair and alternating between looser and tighter curls. I then brush through the hair with my fingers, spray some hairspray et voila!

What is your favourite way to style you hair?

Project healthy hair

I've been such a bad blogger recently. It's been just over a week since I last blogged properly! I've hit a bit of a slump and haven't really had anything to blog about! I've been trying to save lots of spare pennies which means I haven't really buying much stuff (although I had a bit of a splurge recently so there will probably be a haul soon) so yeah, I'm sorry guys!

Annnnyways. About a week ago I went for a long overdue trip to the hairdressers. I'm definitely not someone who sticks to the 6-8 week trim rule. To be honest I hadn't been in a bout a year :/ if any hairdressers are reading this - I apologise! My hair was pretty much frazzled, split ends galore. Here's the before...

Now I'm not gonna lie, the 'results' are not that much different, as my boyfriend so nicely pointed out. Purely because I'm happy with the style and length I just told the hairdresser to keep as much of the length as possible and make it healthy!

Split ends gone! She gave me a nice blow dry and now me and my hair can start a fresh. From this day forward I pledge to do weekly deep conditioning treatments, put the straighteners down from time to time and give it some TLC.

Not a very exciting post, admittedly but I tweeted about going to the hairdressers and someone said I should blog it :)
