It took me a while to think how to do this post, as I am no beauty blogger. I like make up, don't get me wrong, but my routine is pretty generic and same old, same old. However one thing beauty related I am obsessed with is my hair. I get comments quite alot on this blog about my hair, whether that's to do with the colour, or how big it is!
So ghd and me collaborated to bring you a voluminous curly hair tutorial.
I like my hair very big, with loose, textured curls. It's quite natural looking- that whole, 'not too much effort' look, which is why I use a thin ghd straightener, rather than a curling iron or rollers.
I use the ghd V pink diamond styler as the plates have contoured edges which makes it much easier to twist it round the hair and create curls and movement.
So, lets get to it.
You'll want to start with completely dry hair, it doesn't matter if it's not poker straight, as curling it will help smooth out your hair.
First section your hair and pin all but a small under layer up on your head- yes looking very sexy right now.
Roughly divide this into small sections about 1.5 cm wide, and taking one at a time, place the straightener at the top. Whilst straightening down, bend the iron under and curl the hair round the straighter.
Once you get to the bottom, the hair should be a curl.
Keep going all the way round until, big loose waves and curls have formed. They won't be princess curls, but that's OK, this is a natural, everyday look.
Then move onto the next layer of hair, until you get all the way to the top.
Once you get to the top layer of your hair, take a section in between the straighteners, and pull upwards and round about an inch away from your head, which adds height and volume to your roots. My little secret- Back comb a little of the roots now, and hair spray under this section to hold it.
Then, taking a curl balm, scrunch up the hair a little at the bottom, to hold the curls in place.
Finally touch up and sections which look too curled, or perfect or that have curled the wrong way- I make this mistake all the time.
And there you have it, my everyday hair style. A voluminous, curly look. I find that this lasts a couple of days, and I just touch up a few pieces the next day.
If you want to recreate this look, you can get the ghd V Jewel Styler here.
