Hair Roundup…

As this week is coming to a close I thought I would share a few styles I have been wearing since the heat has decided to stick around for..so…damn…long! I am most definitely an Autumn/Winter girl that’s for sure, saving me from that awful “soaked hair on neck” situation I have been throwing it up in either a Gibson Tuck or Chignon Bun, which are both so easy and quick to do, then I decided to wear a bunch of flowers in my hair and lay on the floor too…which is perfectly normal…right?

I am thinking an easy video tutorial for the Chignon Bun is in order so I will get on to that soon!

On a similar note I am so happy to announce I will be styling tresses at this amazing event at the Flyby in Fremantle, you do need to buy tickets but once your in the doors there is a free swing dancing class, live jazz bands and of course you can get your hair styled by me!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend, I will be stopping by Fringe Festival for a show tonight and then lots of projects to conquer! Xx

Rolled and Ready…

I thought i would do a small post today about one of my favourite hairstyles this week, i knew i was going to be heading out on a boat all day for my work christmas party so i made sure it was up and solidly hairsprayed, just so you know it was even still in place enough to teach a lindy class afterwards so..huzzah!!

Just a slight description would be a vintage fringe roll and Lucy rolls, its such an easy style i think i even may have to do a video tutorial for you all! I also wanted to show off my amazing magazines my love came home from Melbourne with, they are so hilarious to read i just love vintage articles!!

I hope you all have amazing plans for this weekend, i have lots of dinners and dancing and im sure lots of gin to be drinking too!!

Floral Swirls…

At times this week i could have sworn Summer had been long forgotten about, aside from a few moments of sun and warmth we have been having the most incredible thunderstorms it almost feels like a tropical island, steam rising from the ground as the cold rain splatters the dreary looking plants! The smell of rain always makes me think of when i was young, growing up on a farm in the hills..when it would rain my sister and i would run outside to our verandah and listen to it hitting the tin roof and watch it pour down our long winding driveway, it would always move the rocks apart so driving back down it the next day was always an (seriously bumpy) adventure).

This is today’s outfit one of my favourite op shop finds, a handmade 1950’s dress with the most incredible collar. I was also having a pretty good hair day too (at times it just drives me nuts) so much swirly goodness!!!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend planned, my love is finally home so im sure our few days off will involve christmas tree decorating and a few adventures!

French Roll With A Twist..

A cute interpretation of the classic French Roll today which as most of my hairstyles are was a complete fluke. I had previously curled hair and did a simple roll at the back sectioning a piece from the left hand side to sweep backwards to join the roll, as it was already curled the little pin curl made its own formation to which then i just tucked in a few little flowers! Viola!!

A perfect little number for about third day hair as it has a little more grip and staying power, no need for hairspray really as a fixing spritzer should do the trick!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend planned, im hoping to cram in quite a lot even a trip to this is on the cards! Happy Friday! Xx

Products of Choice…

I have had a few lovely readers ask me what products i use on a daily basis both on my face and hair, i have a very select range as i try not to overload my body too much and i always try and pick brands that are either organic or shy away from chemical content. This of course is just a personal preferance but i figured i would share my picks with you!

Face Products 

I wash my face with a soap free product, but sometimes i even just use bi-carb soda and a little water, it makes an amazing face scrub and lifts the day off your face easily. I then swap between the two products below on my face after i have washed it so one day oil, next day moisturiser.

It smells divine and absorbs amazingly i also use it as a hand moisturiser too. Plus they only use essential oils and 100% natural botanical extracts which means its Paraben free!

I cant express my love for this product enough, all i can say is get it and put it on your face, you will love me for it!! I had such a fear of slathering oil on my face before bed thinking my pillowcase would absorb it all, but take the plunge i urge you! It absorbs quite quickly and has an easy applicator it clears your blemishes, fixes dry patches and balances your oily sections too. It quite literally is a fix-it oil for your face and you will never look back!


Hair Products 

 As i am lucky enough to be surrounded by hair products every day it took awhile but o eventually found a cleansing set that i really do love and feel good about putting in my hair, i stress to you all its not just about the delicious smell your shampoo provides the nutrients and repair agents are so important too especially if you are using heating tools and putting your hair through rough elements on a daily basis!

Its quite a concentrated shampoo so you only use a small amount (which means it last longer hooray!) but it really clenses the gold tones out of your hair and cleanses it thoroughly too!

I dont go too crazy on the conditioner, i just use it on the ends of my hair and sparingly through the roots, i find if my hair is too soft after washing my sets wont work as well and its difficult to style for a few days, this conditioner is great for that as it does wonders with a small amount.

Once in a blue moon i treat my hair to a masque, it helps my poor disheveled ends with some nutrients and i usually leave it in for a good half an hour. You can almost hear my hair singing in glee, this one smells incredible too!

 CEDEL HAIRSPRAY 

This is the only hairspray i use, its a strong hold and dosent get all up in my throat and chest when im spraying, its a tried and tested brand that has lasted the years. I have attempted to use others but i always come back to this one! Its also great for keeping those pin curls in place.

After my pin curl sets i will always spend time brushing out the curls, in the final stages of the brush out i apply an amount of pomade to my hands and work it through the sections, it tames the fly aways and frizz that always comes with a set and always gives it a beautiful shine. There are many pomades out there but i do like this brand in particular as it holds well.

The setting agent that i love the most..da da dahhh!!! I love it…it won’t turn my hair crispy, it holds without being too obnoxious and it smells pretty too. When applying it to my set i spray from roots to ends and roll the pin curl. It also lasts quite well, i go through a bottle once every three months which is pretty good considering!

I always love reading what everyone else uses, so if you have any recommendations feel free to pop them in the comments! Xx
