A couple of weeks ago I went to see Olly Murs in concert and thought it was the perfect opportunity to get out my Babylis Curling Wand (I got it for Christmas) and give it a whirl. I have completely poker straight hair, which some may consider a blessing, but to me, although I can wear my hair natural without it looking crazy, its so boring! In addition to it being straight- its flat and persistent. It is extremely reluctant to hold a curl or pretty much any other style.
My hair woes aside, I thought I'd tell you about my current hair routine for when I want a hairdoo that's a bit different from my usual.
First, I give my hair a little bit of a tease with my Primark Back Combing Brush. After spritzing my hair with Lee Stafford's Heat Protectant (which is actually intended for straightening hair, but I thought it'd do the job all the same), I use the highest setting (210 degrees) of the wand and curl about two inch sections of hair away from my face. When I'm finished, I give my hair a bit of a shake and set it all with Bed Head Maxxed Out Hairspray, the only hairspray I've found that holds my hair, and has the bonus of smelling like oranges and not being an aerosol.
The effect is casual, kind of beachy curls which last a good few hours (probably longer if I wasn't running out of hairspray). The whole process takes about 20 minutes which I think is fair, though I wouldn't do this on a regular basis as it seems like so much more effort than usual.
What's your current 'oomph' hairstyle?
