How I Tame My #MorningMane (*)
My Hair can sometimes be a struggle in the morning, its thick, long and does what ever the hell it wants to. So for those days when my hair just isn't playing game yet I still want to wear it down I have two 'go to styles' One is to throw up my fringe in a half up half down style and the other is this simple Spring double braid.
In collaboration with LeoVegas.com and their #MorningMane competition to win £75 hair salon vouchers by entering your before/ after photos of your morning mane. Here's the products and techniques I used to go from a bed head mess to a tamed sleek lose curled style.
I already washed my hair the night before using the John Frieda Luxury Volume 7 Day Treatment which lifts your hair at the roots and thickens the overall look. As my hair is long it can get weighed down so this little bottle of glory works a treat!
However after throwing it up over night it's guaranteed you'll wake up with a cave woman-esque style. So to begin to tame my mane I use my trusty Michael Mercer de-tangler with a spritz of dry shampoo to give your hair 'grip' in order to make it easier to style.
I then took two 1.5inch pieces from either side of my hair (one side just behind my fringe and the other from the front of the hair) and messily braided both pieces. I secured them with two small black elastics and pinned them together at the the back of my head with bobby pins that I'd spritzed with a little hairspray.
Taking random pieces of hair, i then used the Mark Hill Curling Tongs to create loose curls which I eventually brushed out (to turn into waves) using the the Lee Stafford Argan Oil that tames frizz and adds a healthy shine.
To finish the look and secure the style I used a mist of hairspray from a distance and that's it! A super easy, quick and effective style that looks effortlessly put together.
