How I do Voluminous curls without curling tongs / straighteners
You’re probably sick of spending ages in the morning curling or straightening your hair before school/work, right? I’ve been there, trust me. I’d much rather spend the extra 30 minutes in bed – but I’m also not a fan of the way pin straight hair looks on me. At one point, I was curling my hair almost every day (awful I know) – and even with heat protecting spray, my hair was slowly starting to dry out and getting frizzy at the ends. That’s why I’m going to show you a very simple way of adding volume to your hair without any curling tongs/straighteners – and it only takes a minute to prepare. Sounds too good to be true right? This trick will work best on medium to long hair and for those with thin to medium hair thickness. Step 1: Wash your hair as normal I like to use my standard everyday shampoo for this (your go-to regular shampoo will work fine). I sometimes find that certain richer shampoos made for intensive moisturising can weigh my hair down a little – so use an alternative if you want to see the best results. Step 2: Pat your hair dry and follow up with heat protection The best kind of leave in treatment to use for adding volume is with something quite lightweight, thin in consistency and of course provides heat protection. Be generous with it! Step 3: Blow-dry your hair upside down I know this sounds like a weird one – but trust me on this! Position your head so that your hair is falling towards the floor, place your hairdryer 6 inches away and start drying from the roots and work your way to the ends. Blow-dry in this position until your hair is almost completely dry. Step 4: Twist your hair into a low bun This is the important part: once your hair is 95% dry, take all of your hair and twist it all the way down to the ends tightly and wrap it around itself to form a low bun. If you have thicker hair – divide your hair into two sections and form two low buns. Twist your hair to one side and then wrap it around to form a bun Step 5: Just sit and wait All the hard work is done - now you just have to sit and wait until it’s completely dry. If you want to speed up this process, you can blow-dry your hair whilst it’s in the bun until it’s fully dry - or do this hair hack first thing in the morning so by the time you’ve put on your makeup and picked out an outfit, your hair will be ready! Step 6: Take out your bun and you’ve got bouncy fluffy curls! The longer you leave it in, the better the results! I start to see volume and curls after having my hair in the bun like this for an hour. This makes it perfect for those who have a long commute - leave your house with your hair in a bun and get to your destination with gorgeous curls. Enjoy this fool- proof simple hack for healthy voluminous hair.

GO TO CUTE HAIRSTYLE: THE LOW MESSY BUN!
So naturally I have very straight, silky smooth hair and I love a good messy look. Although everyone’s go to is throwing their hair up in a top messy bun, I swear it takes me much longer to create that then this look! 💁🏽♀️ I also feel like your hair stays a lot more secure the entire day with this look and can be dressed up from day to night, and all you need are 2 hair ties! 😊 I would go for stretchy, good hold hair ties and preferably the same colour as your hair👍🏽 STEPS I love a middle part for this look so start by determining your part. And then I gather all my hair to the back like I’m about to make a pony tail! After this, my other hand with the hair tie comes in and starts creating a very simple, messy, quick bun (thus really doesn’t need to be perfect) I then grab another hair tie just for the added security. Again since my hair is super silky, it tends to fall out but with the extra hair tie, I like to fix up any lose ends as well Once that’s done, I play around with the bun, tuck in any long piece of hair till I’m happy and that’s it! **Pro tip: throw on some hops and you can even pull out a few strands around your face to elevate the look for night time! 💕
Easy and quick buns for lazy days with the wrap-up
My hair is incredibly easy to deal with most of the times. But in summer, things get really bad. Well, the same happens if I go to the gym (hence me trying to avoid it most days!) And it’s all because I tend to sweat. Like a lot. Just imagine sweat pouring down like in the movies. That’s me! Luckily, it doesn’t smell. Unfortunately, my hair tends to look terrible after 5 minutes of walking in the heat or after an hour at the gym. And it starts smelling too. And this you can’t sort out with dry shampoo, trust me, I’ve tried. The only thing I can do is to wash it each and every time. But if you have long hair like I do, the dry blowing and styling takes forever. It’s like a part time job that I hate. So, I had to come up with solutions to look great even if I don’t have the time, the energy or just not in the mood to do my hair. After lots of testing and research, I discovered that it’s a casual bun that I can wear to work and everywhere else, and it doesn’t even matter if I wear a sporty, casual or smart outfit because it looks good with everything. At first I was using hair ties, then hair pins to secure the bun, but lately I’ve got very good with the wrap-up bun tool (my daughter was using it for her ballet lessons, so it was always there, just in front of me!). So, what I do now is wash my hair when I shower and let it dry naturally or use the dry blower. To make sure the hair doesn’t get frizzy, I apply a few drops of Nashi Argan Oil on the damp hair. The hair treatment helps with untangling the hair, which is really great! And in the morning, when I want to leave the house, I just wrap the hair in a bun and I’m done in like under 2 minutes. It’s like the perfect solution for me and I tend to do it more and more often (even when I’d have the time to do something with my hair!)

BEGINNER: DIY HAIR TRIM✂️✨
I love trimming my hair once a month for the benefits such as hair growth and split-end removal. I’ve noticed these trims allow me to wear my straight hair naturally which allows for less time being spent on it in the morning. The tools used to give myself an at-home trim include: hair scissors wide-tooth comb Choosing these 2 tools allows for little to no damage during the process. To start: on damp to dry hair, I part my combed out hair how I normally style it. next, I gather one side of the hair and alternate between twisting and combing out the segment of hair. then, I take the scissors and trim away at the split ends sticking out of the twist.repeat on the other side, and you will have a trim that leaves you with soft, knot-free hair. Disclaimer: I am not a professional hairstyle, this is just works for me. Also, I have only tried this on straight hair and not sure how it works on other hair types.
Don’t do this - Using the hair curler on wet hair!
I love curls, but for me it takes a while to get them as they don’t just happen to me. The silver lining is that once I get them, they usually last for at least 4 days, which is a dream come true. However, it’s not always been very easy to get the wavy hair of my dreams. It’s been a long road of trial and error until I got it right. I used to try the curling iron as soon as I got damp hair, which resulted in a very long process and lots of burnt hairs. Not to mention that I can’t say I was over the moon with the results. It took me a while to realize that damp hair was a definite no-no. Actually, it was my hair stylist who insisted I never use a curling iron or straightener on wet or damp hair. Since then I always blow dry the hair before, and, more often lately, I wash it in the evenings and do the waves next morning. When I first started with the Philips Style Care Prestige, I felt like I’ve found my way to the perfect waves in a fraction of the time I’ve used to spend on this. The automatic hair curler is not on the cheap side, but it’s very easy to use, you just need to put little strands of hair in the opening and it sucks the hair in. Also, it gets warm in a matter of seconds and I’ve noticed that it doesn’t burn my hair at all. You can curl the hair in different directions, and for different amounts of time. It’s customizable depending on your needs and I totally love this. However, I was doing another mistake when using it – applying styling products before using the automatic curler. I’ve stopped doing this after I realized how much better it looks if I apply the styling foam when I’m done. So, what I do now is just use the curler on dry hair, it takes me about 20 minutes with my long hair. I don’t curl all the hair, just hair strands here and there. After I’m done, I put my fingers through the curls, so they look a bit messy – I love this fresh and casual look. The hair styling foam or spray is optional, sometimes I used it, other times not, my waves are good either way.
