Simple Summer Hair

So lately I have been doing very basic hair that gives it a lot of volume and still looks put together! In the video below I was on day two hair so I did miss out a few of the steps I mentioned below.. I don’t have the patience nor the time to play around with my hair to make it look perfect and I just did this hairstyle randomly one day and I’ve worn it like it ever since! So in this post I’m going to give you a step by step guide how to achieve an effortless summer hairstyle!

STEP ONE: Wash and condition your hair! (if needed)

It doesn’t matter if you’re on day 1,2,3 day hair you can still achieve this look easily! However if it is my ‘hair wash day’ (which is every two days) then my current routine is the TRESemme 24 Hour Body shampoo and conditioner and as an extra treat for my hair I use the Loreal Paris Elvive Triple Resist deep conditioner. Both conditioners I leave on my hair for 2-3 minutes so they really nourish my hair.
STEP TWO: Add volume and texture!

So after I get out of the shower I wrap my hair up in my towel and leave it for about 15-20 minutes so as moisture is absorbed into the towel then I go ahead and add my volumising mousse which is by Pantene PRO-V as an extra boost I spray in some of the Nick Chavez Plump ‘n’ Thick Thickening Mist which works a charm with the mousse!
STEP THREE: Protect your ends!

The last thing you want to do is damage your hair especially the ends as the more you damage the ends of your hair the more frizz you will be left with. So to keep those frizzy ends at bay I do three things to help. First I spray my hair with V05’s heat protect, this helps protect my hair when I dry it with the hairdryer and add the waves into my hair.
STEP FOUR: Dry your hair!


This is completely optional how you dry your hair but to get the best volume I always dry my hair upside down so it helps the hair lift from the root. You could always let your hair air-dry but it won’t be as full looking.

STEP FIVE: Grab your straighteners and wave! (unless you have proper crimpers)


If you watch the video above then you will see how I wave my hair with straighteners, its very simple I just twist the straighteners from one side to the other whilst slowly going down my hair, the slower you do it the bigger waves you will get.

STEP SIX: Now to get even more volume!


On one side of your head (or both if you want) split the top section of your hair leaving a few strands at the front. With the hair you’ve sectioned back-comb the base a few times then twist the hair around then push it forward and you should end up with a little ‘poof‘ then clip it in place with some bobby pins or with a pretty clip. Now for the sides that we left out, I back-comb these a little too just to fill any gaps and make my hair look fuller! I also wear my fringe to the side and back-comb that too! If you‘re lost then watch the video!

STEP SEVEN: Add the finishing touches!


Then simply add hair spray and any more bobby pins to be sure everything stays in place!
