Exhibit a: an extremely rare photo, i.e. an image capturing Australian beauty blogger of mildly well-read blog swatchgirl dot com z-grade fame with her hair out. I never wear my hair out. It’s always up in a ponytail or topknot, to the extent that I shaved out a big chunk of hair on the back of my head to make my noggin look marginally more interesting when my hair is up. I don’t do down. I don’t do out. Pins and hair ties and my neck bared to the sunlight, that’s more my style.
I never wear my hair out. Yet, thanks to Taft and their new Full On range of hair styling products, my hair is both out and in loose curls. By golly, what a moment.
My hair was combed out of its usual messy topknot and spritzed liberally with Guardian Angel (AU$6.99), a heat protection spray without any hold factor that’s designed to handle temperatures of up to 220oC, or as hot as a GHD iron. My hair was then curled with a GHD into the most bridesmaid-y tight ringlets you’ve ever seen, a look I haven’t sported since I got my hair permed at the tender age of 8 in time for my cousin’s wedding.
Mercifully the curls were separated and tousled into loose waves, with a little Styling Powder added at the roots for more volume (I don’t have this at home, but I do have a faithful little canister of Schwarzkopf Extra Care Volume Powder – improvisation, etc) and finished with a generous spritz of Freeze It (AU$5.99), a firm hold hairspray without any crunchiness.
Nice! The day I learn how to curl both sides of my head with a GHD – am I the only person who can only do the left side? anyone? Bueller? – I’m going to recreate this look, scary bridesmaid moment and all.
