My favourite hair styles and tutorials

Wednesday, 4 September 2013

I wanted to attempt to do a hair tutorial for you guys as I am busy doing some work with Toni & Guy and loving experimenting and playing around with their products but, truth be told, I am very average when it comes to hair styling. I am OK when it comes to basics that can be achieved with my usual styler but it would be a bit silly doing a hair tutorial on something that I’m pretty sure you all know how to do. Anyway, that’s where The Small Things blog comes into play.

I have been following Kate from The Small Things for a while now and it’s purely for her hair tutorials. She is a hair stylist by trade so really knows what she’s talking about and does tutorials of hair styles you would want to wear on a daily basis and that don’t look too over-styled. Below are a few favourites that I have tried, as well as a few hair products from Toni & Guy that have helped me achieve the look.

The 'hair-down'/casual Sunday look

 The tutorial:

The products:
The Sea Salt Texturising Spray (I gave a full review here). Amazing for the natural beachy waves and keeps everything in place with great volume.
The easy-to-achieve pony-tail look:
The tutorial:
The Product:
Classic Shine Gloss Serum to tame unruly fly-aways and give the pony-tail that sleek look.
The slightly smarter/loose bun look:
The tutorial:
The product:
Firm Hold Spray is great for keeping all in place without making your hair feel too stiff. Add some Sea Salt Texturising Spray too. It works wonders.

  2. I wish I had discovered this blog post before I cut my hair! I was growing it to do exactly this kind of thing but ended up just leaving it loose most of the time and then got fed up :(

  4. I love her hair tutorials too! If only my hair did what I want it to. Another hairdresser's blog to try if you don't already know of it is http://blog.hairandmakeupbysteph.com/ She doesn't do videos that often, but her step-by-step tutorials are easy enough to follow.

    1. Cool - thanks so much for sharing. I know. It often depends on my hairs mood as to how it looks. Plus I am useless at doing plaits!
