The sunshine is gorgeous and it leaves us feeling sassy and golden, right? Yes! As great as it can make our skin look, because, let’s face it, everyone looks better with a tan, it can wreak havoc on your gorgeous hair. Especially if it’s coloured.

Create A Dark Lip

Dark lips are great for a striking look in the evening – it’s one of my favourite looks. However, with a neutral eye and dewy foundation, you can also pull them off in the day.

Unboxing #BootsBeautyBox: The Hair Edition

The #BootsBeautyBox is here again! This time, it’s a hair styling special and it’s a pretty exciting box.

First of all, I’m a huge Batiste fan, I’ve tried a lot of dry shampoos and I always go back to them purely because the price is great for the wicked job their dry shampoo does so I was excited to try the Batiste Stylist Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray. I’m a fan of texture and volumizing powders so I was interested in this product as occasionally I find I can be a little heavy handed with the powders and things can get messy! I like this spray as it’s easier to control than powders but I don’t think it lasts as long. It definitely adds serious texture though so I might just have to pop a little more in, I’m probably being too cautious!

I get a few questions about how I style my hair occasionally so I thought it’d be fun to do a quick how to post about how I do it and what I use! This ends up looking like my photo in the top right, just if you haven’t seen it.

When I wash it, I always use Wella System Professional Luxe Oil on the ends to keep them happy and then roughly blow dry, sometimes I use a salt spray too but I’m never sure if I really see the benefits of it once I’ve finished my hair. If anyone has any texturising or salt spray recommendations I’d love to hear them please!
