Now i'm the type of girl who loves the whole messy, i-just-got-out-of-bed 'do, but as many of you may already know - it's not as easy to achieve as it looks! I've tried using crimpers, triple-barreled curling irons, etc. and nothing had given me the effect i've been looking for. I remembered a tutorial i had watched by Thea, xrubyredlips on Youtube, and thought i'd give it a go again - i've tried this method before & really liked it but last night was the first time in months i'd tried it!
These photos were taken when i got home from school so the waves had dropped a bit, but this is the kind of effect this method to getting wavy-beachy hair gives :)
You start with damp, uncombed hair straight out of the shower & start kind of scrunching it with your hands. You then spray it with a bit of hairspray - i used Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly hairspray - before braiding it & putting it in messy buns. You'll have to watch part 1 of the tutorial for that as it's quite hard to explain!
After doing all that, you go to bed, wake up the following morning, take your hair down from the braids & buns, blast it with a blow dryer (with a diffuser on it!), spray it with a bit more hairspray (by a bit i mean a lot) - i used my trusty Tresemme Tres Two Hold hairspray - et voila! You can leave your bangs up or down as well, i just pinned back sections of hair on both sides of my head to give it a bit of volume & also because that's just how i roll :)
It's SO simple, and that's coming from me!
Definitely have a go with this tutorial if you love the bedhead-chic look like i do :)
I'd like to thank those of you who left such amazing comments on my last post, it soo incredible feeling so supported by you girls. Honestly means a lot ♥
Hope you all had a lovely Monday!
