Braids

\r\n


1. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo and conditioner like head&shoulders Smooth & Silky, before blow drying on a medium heat setting.

2. Start by making a centre parting and sectioning a 1 inch wide section to the left.

3. Start braiding at the front and work your way back adding small sections to the braid as you move towards the crown and then down the back of your head to the nape of your neck.

4. Next, take another 1 inch section to the left and braid in the same way, from the hair line to the nape, and repeat until you have completed all hair to the left of the parting, before doing the same to the right, in 1 inch sections. You should have 8-10 braids at the end.

5. When you get to the ends of each braid, secure with a small hair elastic leaving you sporting a modern, sexy, beach look. Just remember to spritz your scalp with SPF before venturing into the sun!

Half-up Half-down

\r\n


1. Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo and conditioner and blow dry – the best end-looks start with clean hair!

2. For this look, you need to saturate your hair with hair serum.

3. Once you have serum throughout your hair, from root to tip, separate the bottom half and the top half of your hair, parting from ear to ear passing just underneath the crown and gather in a tight ponytail.

4. Pull some thin strands of baby hair from the front hairline and add a small drop of serum to it to get a super-glam wet look.

Top-knot

\r\n


1. Firstly, hold your head upside down, gathering all your hair in a tight ponytail at the crown, and secure with a hair bungee. (Rake the hair together with your fingers to achieve a slightly undone result when creating the ponytail)

2. Next, spray a texturizing spray liberally throughout the ponytail and dry the product into the hair with the hairdryer on a medium heat setting.

3. When your hair is dry rub the ponytail a little between the tips of your fingers to create some texture.

4. Now, wrap the ponytail loosely around its base and secure the ends underneath the created bun with a few pins.

5. Finally, shape the bun carefully with your fingers and hold in place with some hairspray, and you’re done!

Tousled Waves

\r\n


1. After washing your hair with a shampoo and conditioner suited to your hair and scalp needs like head&shoulders Smooth & Silky, spray a little texturizing spray throughout the hair and start to blow dry on a medium heat setting.

2. When the hair begins to feel semi-dry separate it into six to eight chunky sections.

3. Take one section at a time and twist them between your fingers in a backwards motion whilst drying with the hairdryer. (Take care not to twist the section tight, just let each section glide between your fingers to achieve the perfect twist).

4. Once all the sections are dry, unravel each one carefully with your fingers and finish with some hairspray for some extra va-va-voom gloss and hold.
