There wasn't a Trend on Trial in this week's Stylist magazine, so I made a last minute decision to enter Beauty Junkie's ghd blogger competition. And when I say last minute, I really mean last minute...the competition ends tomorrow!!
So to enter, you have to create your holiday hair style and explain why and what you used. For me, holiday hair is all about relaxed styles that are easy to create. You never want a severe hairstyle while you're enjoying yourself in the sun, for me it's all about the boho beach look.
To achieve this look using ghd products, I would start by spritzing my hair with Hair Protection Spray (obviously very important to protect your hair before you blow dry!), and then rough dry my hair using the ghd hair dryer. You definitely don't need your hair to be perfectly styled for this look, and you can even leave it to dry naturally.
I then used straighteners over my fringe just to keep it looking sleek, and started on the upside down french plait going from right to left. A final coating of Final Fix Hairspray and ta-day there you have it.
I then pulled a few strands of hair loose to soften the look around my face, and added to gold hairband to give it a bit of holiday bling, and that's my holiday hairstyle.
The whole look probably took me about 20 minutes, and if you're hair is already dry then it would take just a couple. Perfect for holiday, because the last thing you want to do is spending half an hour with a hot hairdryer attempting to achieve the perfect blow dry.
So what do you think? Good enough to win the competition? I hope so, I forgot to mention there's £250 worth of ghd goodies up for grabs so I'm keeping all my fingers and toes crossed.
What's your go-to holiday hair style? And have any of you entered this competition? I'd love to see your entries!
all about the girl
P.S. I took these photos myself as the boy wasn't round, hence why some of them are at really dodgy angles! Also, I am wearing clothes...honest!!
