Tried and Tested- no heat waves/curls. 

I am enjoying having shorter hair but where as with long hair you can just tie it up I have found my shorter hair requires styling to look passable! 

  

My lob (long bob) is ombre so does tend to look better with some shape and to be honest my hair straighteners are on there way out! So I was desperate to find an easy way to style my hair! 

Now one way I have found that creates a lovely volumous look is popping large rollers in for a few hours for body and bounce. I have tried sleeping in them but I find I don’t get as good an effect so I tend to dry my hair 3/4 dry then pop them in for an hour or so while I get ready. 

  

  
 I think lobs, particularly ombre look great wavy and waves are a perfect summer look however I cannot be bothered to use a wand or curler on my hair every day to achieve this look, so I thought I’d try out the no heat required waves/curls technique.   
Basically you wrap sections of you’re hair around a hairband so you look like this! I did mine in freshly washed and dried hair- I just spritzed with a little salt water to slightly dampen. I then left just over an hour for hair to dry and gently removed the headband. 

  
I was super pleased and left with beautiful loose be achy waves. Remember the longer you leave this the tighter the curl will be (I’ve tried wet hair over night and ended up looking like a poodle!) 

I’m so happy with the result I plan to rock this look over the rest of the holidays! 

Have you tried this method of curling?

Facing my Hair Fears! 

For as long as I can remember I’ve had long hair. Long hair is great, you can tie it up, curl it and hide behind it! Long hair became my safety blanket! 

 

Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t say my hairs led a boring life. I’ve experimented with colour and styling a lot. I’m very lucky having a sister who’s a hairdresser but she knew better to ever suggest cutting my hair shorter! I was the sort of girl who had nightmares where I had my hair cut and cried because I hated it so much!
  

  
After being red, dark brown, blonde, purple, trying highlights and ombré I fancied a change. Flicking through Pinterest the long bob or “lob” caught my eye. The problem with my long hair was that it was often a bit flat and lifeless. The Lob on the other hand looked full of bounce. Should I go for it?
  
Before I could analyse the idea too much I sent a pic to my sister asking something like would me face look fat with this style?! She was quick to respond with “not, go for it.” Before I knew it I was sat on a chair my hair falling at my feet! I was very excited and nervous to see the finished result but I loved it! 

  
 

My hair feels like it’s got so much more body and bounce. It’s easy to style and I can still curl it. I feel like I look more stylish and classy too. 

  
As I’m getting older I’m definitely  happier in my own skin. 
Hope you enjoyed reading about my hair restyle,
