Bad Hair Day? not any more!

We have all experienced those days when our hair just does not cooperate the way we would like it to be,  don’t deny it! Whether it’s bed hair, second day hair, or a simply just a bad hair day – here are 6 simply easy and quick tips on how to fix it! Dont worry you will not need to do a Britney moment and shave your head!

1. Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo absorbs excess oils and adds a volumizing texture to your hair. If you don’t have dry shampoo handy, try this simple trick: take a small amount, about a teaspoon size of baby powder and gently massage it into your scalp at the roots. This will also absorb excess oils and make your hair appear fresher but this method mainly works on lighter hair as dark hair will have a grey look on your hair.

Tip: use little by little of the dry shampoo, make sure not to use too much, or otherwise it will be noticeable.

2. Braids, braids, braids

I just love braids anyway but not only will they cover up that second day hair, they also look so much better on second or third day hair. For some ideas on what kinds of braids you can try out:

 

 

3. Tease your roots

For flat hair, backcombing the roots will instantly lift the hair and give it a lively, fuller look.

4. Embrace the frizz

Your hair doesn’t need to be perfectly smooth at all times. Why not go with your frizz rather than against it by lightly braiding or putting your hair in a boho hairstyle , and just be confident with it?

5. Wash half your hair

This one may sound a little strange, I know, but for a lot of us the process of washing and drying the hair can take a long time and is just complete effort. When you’re in a rush, take the front part of your hair and wash that section only (maybe even in the sink). If you have a fringe, just go ahead and wash the fringe. This will give an illusion that you have freshly washed hair and take the attention away from what you’re trying to hide!!

6. Rock that cute hat or headband

This one is a major one!! If you have tried all of the above and your hair is still annoying you or your just too lazy to even try attempt to fix it, than throw on a hat to disguise it all! Try rocking a cute hat with a side braid, or tease your hair at the crown and put on a thick headband. Ta-da what bad hair day?

It’s only a bad hair day if we allow it to be one. You are beautiful no matter what, stay confident and smile lots. If you do not attract attention to your not so perfect hair on those bad hair days, I am telling you, nobody will even notice a thing about it!! 🙂

Hair for your Halloween Costume!

Halloween is just around the corner and if your like me and Halloween is your favourite holiday than you tend to go all out on your costume!

Todays post is all about the best hair products for your Halloween look. Halloween hair can be the reason why your costume stands out! If you’re looking to temporarily colour your hair, add a frightening amount of volume, or keep your hair in place, then this post is just for you! Keep scrolling to see to see what needs to be achieved to perfect your Killer hairstyle!

  • Temporary Hair Colour: I know Crazy colours are quite a “no no” in some jobs but that’s why having temporary Hair colouring is great because when shampooed it washes out!

Hair chalk is the perfect way to add temporary colour to strands of your hair.If your hair is dark, wet your hair in the areas that you want to colour. If you have lighter strands (that’s you, blondies!), skip this step or else the colour will remain for a few more washes. Strand by strand run the calk up and down your hair until you’ve reached your desired colour.

Hair colour spray works perfectly on dry hair and comes in the prettiest of colours. It also washes out after one shampoo so don’t worry about scaring your coworkers when you return to work!

  • Wigs: For costumes that the hair plays the major part in, think Ariel, Cleopatra.  Cruella De Vil, rather than changing the whole colour of your hair a wig is best off for those kind of looks. If you really wanting to keep the wig in place and make sure nothing goes away, a wig cap is the best for helping to style your look.
  • Accessories: Compared to years ago, there are so many fun ways to accessorize your hair using items like plastic spiders and spider webs. Hairbands or chains are another great way to dress up an outfit!
  • Extra hold Hairspray: If your costume requires amazing big hair, Extra hold hairspray will be your Best Friend!  This will keep your hair in place for the whole day and night! Schwarzkopf Silhouette hairspray is the best!
  • Glitter: In my opinion all costumes can be made better with a hint of sparkle! If your looking to add that sparkle to your costume there is either loose glitter or hairspray glitter.
  • Hidden Props: Are you wanting to be a character that’s hair goes to a new level of height? First think of what you can use in your hair before backing coming your hair for dear life!! To achieve a Unicorn look you can use tin foil to shape the horn and than once sliped into place all that’s left is to wrap the hair around to cover the foil! .

A great site to buy off of is Party World. This shop is in Waterford but also delivers  around Republic of Ireland. Here is some of the hair items:

Signs you NEED A HAIRCUT / NEW LOOK

IF YOU’RE CONFUSSED WHETHER YOU NEED A NEW HAIR STYLE, TAKE SOME INSPIRATION FROM KIM KARDASHIAN…

4 signs you needs a new look

 

The internet went into meltdown again this week when we seen a picture of Kim Kardashian with her hair chopped into a blunt lob but matter of fact turns out the new look  – ITS A WIG!!

At this point I think if we see any Kardashian/Jenner change there hairstyle – Its not real..

A lot of people this year have gone for the chop and got a complete new hairstyle (Like you may know I myself got a few inches off my hair) But I got to say I have loved my hair since I got it done.

Here are questions to ask yourself that may help you make up your mind if it’s time for a change, and do you need a haircut…

* Did your hairstylist cut layers the last time you got your hair cut, and now your hair is nearing one length? It’s time for a trim at the very-least.

* Have you had the exact same length for the past five years, and to ensure your dead ends are gone, you only get a few cm chopped?

* Is your hair looking thinner? The longer fine hair grows, the thinner it looks. A shorter cut can give you the appearance of thicker, healthier hair.

* What sort of maintenance is involved in new style and can I handle it? Are you ready for high maintenance?

* What is the growing out process going to be like?

I know it seems silly to put so much thought into getting a haircut, but as anyone who has ever had a bad haircut knows, it’s best to really be sure about these things!

                                     Are you considering cutting your hair?

Any more questions, Let me know, and if you do get the chop Make sure you tag me in pictures 🙂
