Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

BaubleDo you have friends or family that are hairstylists? Or maybe you are just grateful to your own stylist for that amazing party hairstyle they did for you the other day or for all the fab hair cuts they’ve given you this year. Show them your appreciation buy getting them this quirky Christmas gift! Or maybe if you run a salon you could decorate your tree with these, they are sure to make the customers smile!

Make your own chirstmas hair accessories!

Chrimbo Hair AccessoryI found these adorable hair clips online and thought they would be the perfect hair accessories. I was really disappointed to find out that you couldn’t buy them but then I discovered instructions on how to make them! I used to make my own jewellery and hair accessories all the time so I thought this would be a really fun thing to do.

You can get the instructions from Girly Things. You will need an alligator clip which you can get from boots or any hair shop, some green, brown and red ribbon and some strong glue. The instructions are really easy to follow and there is a step by step picture guide too.

You could do the same thing with a brooch pin if you would rather make a brooch than hair clips. I found making these clips great fun and I think they would make a really thoughtful Christmas gift, so give it a go!

50s Christmas Glamour

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

Hair StyleWe know that hair bands are hot at the moment but how do you wear them this party season to create a sophisticated look. Chloe Rhodes at the telegraph.co.uk visited top London hairstylist Carla Farrugia at Hari’s Salon and she showed her some glamorous party styles using an alice band a elastic hairband, curling tongs and some bobby pins. I love the bouffant half up-half down do. So often people think that the have to either have hair up or down for a party style and this style often gets neglected. The tonged curls look great and the hair at the front sweeped to the side gives you a whole new look by creating a 50s style fringe. I think this style would look fantastic with many of 40s and 50s inspired dresses that have appeared on the high street this Christmas.

Remington Wet2Straight

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

Wet2StraightMy trusted straighteners that I have had since I first realised that frizzy hair was not cool have finally given up on my this week. However its actually been a blessing in disguise because my replacement straighteners have halved the time it takes me to do my hair when I get out of the shower. I’ve bought a pair of Remington ‘wet2straight’ straighteners. This fantastic time saving device allows you to straighten your hair from wet so where I would normally spend half an hour wrestling with a blow dryer to get my hair dry and in a condition ready to straighten, now I do not need to bother.

The wet to straight straighteners have holes along one side of the ceramic plates so steam is directed safely away from your face as the hair dries. They can reach 230 degrees so are hot enough to give you a perfect result and they work just as well on dry hair. There are wide and slim varieties available. I bought the wide ones because my hair is quite long but they are useless for straightening my fringe so if you have short hair or a fringe I recommend the narrow style. These straightens are less pricey than Ghds and a must have if you have lots of hair to manage and not much time. At Boots there is currently a 1/3 off so a pair will only set you back 39.98.
