I am rather terrible with hair. It’s just not my thing. I never use curling tongs or flat irons, and the one time I attempted giving myself a proper ‘blow out’ I managed to blow all my makeup off the counter (and did not achieve sleek glossy curls in the process).
My ineptitude with managing my locks does, however, mean I’ve become expert at spotting genuinely fool-proof hairstyles. Here are three of my favourites:
1/ The braided up-do is a classic. Simply part your hair down the middle, plait the two sections, cross over your head and pin into place.
2/ A top-knot is a great way to look more elegant. Pull your hair into a high ponytail, split into sections and backcomb them to add volume. Wrap around the ponytail to form a bun and pull it out to form your desired shape.
3/ Wearing your hair half up, half down is so easy, but if you add a pretty ribbon it adds a touch of youthful whimsy to your look.
Finally, my favourite way to do my hair when I’m having a bit of a bad hair day (or I’m in a rush) is to put it up in a messy bun. This look is incredibly easy to achieve, but it always gets complimented. In fact, after my Pidgin, Hackney post, a few people asked for a tutorial on how I do my hair this way, so here it is! I hope you enjoy it! Press play on the video below or follow this link to view my messy bun tutorial:
