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!! 🙂

Summer Festival Fashion

It has been festival season a while now but with Longitude being on this weekend I thought I would do a festival style post. Being festival season means bring out the tents and heading to the field for 2/3 days of music, drink and sunshine (maybe not in Ireland though…) This post is going to be filled with festival outfits for inspiration! I love seeing other peoples outfits and going about putting my own style onto it.

Festival Hair Ideas!

My most loved time of the year is Festival Season. With Coachella over but more music festivals to happen during the summer this is the perfect time to try these looks out. What I love about festival looks is you can be unique and go crazy!!

My favourite looks would have to be ; Space buns, coloured hair, double dutch braids, glitter roots and middle parting braids. With festival looks don’t forget to accessories! This year there is way more accessories that just a flower crown, even though I do love that! Try adding hair charms to your braids, weave some coloured wool through your hair, head scarf or even fresh flowers.

The person I look to for hair inspo is Sophie Hannah Richardson;

Some hair inspiration from Pinterest:

 

For anyone that wants a different colour in your hair but also want it to wash out, well Loreal Colorista Sprays, is what you are looking for! I have black hair and they even show up in it which I was delighted about! Spray in and wash straight out 🙂

Red Leather

You have no idea how long I was looking for a red leather jacket for!

New Look – Red Leather Jacket €49.99

I used to never wear red, hated the colour and now I love it.. I fell in love with the jacket Michael Jackson wore and had to have one. Its a nice twist with a colour and far away from black. As I wear too much black it is nice to have a colour to make it pop.

Get your fishnets on

Fishnets are the trend for this season.

This trend has quite the modern chic feeling to it. It’s quite a tricky piece to style as you could get it completely wrong!  It’s not a trend for everyone but I love it! Here is a few images that will help you style them if you are like me and want to master this trend.

Seeing this on blogger Dominique Nugent (Love Fashion and Fros) instagram just set me off to love this style!

Advanced Style Documentary!

I watched the documentary “Advanced Style” which is about a man, Ari Seth Cohen, who set up a blog that he photographed and interviewed stylish older woman that he saw around New York. Ari started the blog to inspire people to look at aging in a new light, he has beautiful images showing strong stylish senior citizens. His blog has also been made into a book and also the documentary film I watched. Ari said that young woman could also learn from the documentary “the Advanced Style ladies are confident, bold, expressive and incredibly vital. I hope younger woman are inspired by their freedom and individuality” which I agree with!

These woman have grown old and glamorously which sounds like the way I would love to. These woman tell their life stories and it’s great to learn there wisdom. The woman know themselves which is the key to style! This documentary shows there’s always something to look forward to at any age.
