Yes, you read that right, TONI&GUY. I’m not going to act like I’m not freaking out because sweet Jesus I most definitely am, and I’m so excited to be introducing you to the first of my four part collaboration series. All the way up until December I will be creating four different looks with four different TONI&GUY ranges, of course styling them up alongside my latest wardrobe picks and some old favourites (it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t find an excuse to buy some new clobber, would it?).
First on the agenda is smooth and sleek, and boy, this couldn’t have come at a better time. With all of the new house rigmarole and regular life carrying on around me, my hair has spent the majority of its time unwashed and up in a messy bun. Whilst this has been great for keeping it out of the way, it definitely hasn’t received the TLC it needs to keep it healthy and happy, and I’ve been noticing the ends becoming frazzled and its general reluctance to do, well, anything that I want it to.
Enter the fail-safe hairstyle that will save you when absolutely nothing seems to be going right, when you’ve only got 10 minutes before you need to be out of the door and when you’re on the verge of a quarter life crisis. It’s easy, it’s sleek, and it will make you look like you actually have your life together enough to plan your hairstyles. I’ve broken down my step by step tips below, plus a few outfit shots in this babe’in Missguided dress.
Step Three: Straighten your hair all over, using heat protector spray before you do so – I’m using TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist. Be sure to pay particular attention to the baby hairs and layers around your face – we want these to fall flat in the next few stages and as few flyaways as possible.
Step Four: Now it’s time to get tying. First define your parting with a brush and smooth your hair down into a low ponytail. Secure with a tie, and then start twisting your hair into a rope. Once fairly tight, loosen up your grip so the ponytail isn’t so taught and it should start curling into shape. Start twisting your hair around so it forms a tight bun, and then secure once more with another tie. Spritz both the front and the back with TONI&GUY Flawless Sleek Creation Hairspray for some extra smoothness, and you’re good to go.
