Bob Stylin'

Oh heyyyya dark hair! Last week I decided to dye my hair super dark - I used to have it this colour a lot and I forgot how much I love it! I am actually toying with going even darker, but that one would be a trip to the hairdressers, as this colour is about as brave as I get to do myself! Anyhooo, I decided to give some hair styling a go too. I am so low maintenance with my hair, and generally loathe having to style it, but whenever I do I get so many compliments that I feel I should start making more of an effort - so here goes! 

To begin with I will give you a low down on my hair (this is going to be a riveting read!) It's naturally straight and flat - and basically doesn't want to do anything else but be straight and flat! These photos here are taken with day two hair, in the afternoon after I have had it tied back all day. 

I was lucky enough to be gifted a 8 in 1 curling wand from Irresistible Me, which is what has spurred this post on! I had been eyeing up a new hair tool for a while now, but really didn't know what to go for, so this 8 in 1 business is perfect cos I can give lots of things a go! 

I started off by tying the top layer of my hair up, and giving the bottom half a good spritz with some hairspray. My hair is in pretty good condition as I rarely use heat on it, so it's really hard to get it to hold a curl, hence the copious amounts of hairspray I shall be using!

As I said it was mid afternoon when I was doing this, and my plans for the rest of the day just consisted of going out to the pub for some dinner - nothing fancy at all. So I was aiming for tousled waves rather than anything too curled. To achieve this I used the widest barrel wand that came with the iron, and it gave me just the effect I wanted! My technique is very basic and requires no skill - just twisting sections of hair around the barrel in alternate directions.

After curling all my hair I added some salt spray to give it a little more oomph - I would really recommend this one from Bumble & Bumble because it doesn't make you hair feel awful and coated. 

Et voila!! The finished look! I definitely think I succeeded in getting some tousled waves, and I love how it still looks like an effortless style but just give my barnet a little but more volume.

If you guys are interested in purchasing the Irresistible Me curling iron and are based in the UK then you will need to get an adaptor too (I would recommend this one here).
