SUMMER FEELS

 

 

One of my favourite looks is beachy hair, a gorgeous pair of sunnies, with denim shorts and a simple top paired with either heels, sandals or ankle boots, depending on where I'm going.

I’ll be armed with my gorgeous new pair of MiuMiu sunglasses, which I'm still totally obsessed with! 

Having recently been to Europe, I’m sticking around this summer, enjoying the beautiful New Zealand summer and heading to beaches in and around Auckland.

Not to mention plenty of long lunches with the girls in the sun!

I’ve been collaborating with Sunglass Hut(http://www.sunglasshut.com/au/new-zealandontheir #ELECTRIFYSUMMER campaign, so keep checking my Instagram for summer inspiration and the hashtag for others!

ghd curve - creative curl wand - CHIC WAVES

This look is reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour with a red-carpet feel. Perfect for those extra special occasions where you want to get a little more dressed up, like New Year's Eve parties.

1: Create volume in towel-dried hair by applying a couple of pumps of ghd total volume foam into your mid-lengths and ends. Then create a side part as desired

2: Blow-dry your hair using the ghd air hairdryer and a round ceramic brush to give extra volume at the roots and mid-lengths of the hair. Make sure you blow-dry your hair by pointing the nozzle of the hairdryer down the hair shaft and lift the hair cross the brush in an upwards direction, rather than just straight down

3: Once dry add ghd curl hold spray through mid-lengths and ends, which includes heat protect in it. To curl, take 4cm sections, hold the wand horizontally and wrap the hair away from your face from the roots to the ends around the wand. Hold in place for approximately 10 seconds

4: Once all hair is curled and cool, lightly brush out the waves with the ghd oval dressing brush from the mid-lengths to the ends

5: Finish with ghd final fix hairspray and a little ghd smooth & finish serum into the mid-lengths and the ends. For even more glamour, add a light mist of ghd final shine spray all over
