Autumn Hairstyle Tutorial


ghd has challenged me to do Autumn Hairstyle Tutorial and I thought that loose wavy hair and delicate curls with a cute floppy hat would be a perfect choice. I love wearing my hair like that, it's perfect for channelling your boho-chic style and it can also hide this third-day-washed-hair look. To create the look I used my trusty BaByliss You Curl Curling Iron which I had for a couple of years (you can also use standard hair straighteners, I like to use You Curl, because it is wide, so I can create the waves much faster). 



STEP 1
I use ghd Style Total Volume Foam* on a towel dried hair - it is great for adding the volume and make my hair looking and feeling fuller. 

STEP 2 
I spray my hair with TRESemmé Heat Defence Styling Spray to help protect hair when drying and use ghd Paddle Brush* to detangle my mane - I love that it doesn't give me a frizz (has wooden sections) and it's big enough for my long hair.

STEP 3
Now comes BaByliss You Curl and I make sure to take my time and cover every last strand of hair, so there is nothing poker straight peeking through. Essentially, I simply clamp and twist the iron 180 degrees, then flip the iron and repeat the process.

STEP 4
I let the curls cool off for a minute or two and gently ruffle it with my hands to make it more natural. I usually finish off with flipping my hair back and forth and then using a hairspray - my current one is Lee Stafford Hold Tight Firm Hold Hairspray.


What do you think of the finished look?
