Hair of The Day: Wash 'n' Brush

First post Of July...I was hoping to do another 30 day challenge, but have been ultra-busy as of late, so it will have to wait :-(

In the interim, I've kept my hair routine rather simple.  Even so, there's something to be said for simpler styles.  I really like the wash 'n' brush style I wore recently.  I don't think it gets simpler than this!

Hair Of The Day: Curl Curl Curl

He-yo!  Wore a curled style yesterday.  Stayed bouncy and curly into today as well.  Next time will probably emphasise the curls above, as they are definitely more pronounced as you go down.  What do you think?

Hair of The Day: Up and Down

A little bit of wave action, can go a long way.  I think this is true for the photo of the back, especially with the highlights.   Donned my favourite bow, and went out to enjoy the afternoon sunshine!

Hair of The Day - 3 Styles

The past few weeks I've had a number of dramatic hair changes.  It all started when I decided to say goodbye to my previous style.  I removed my extensions and flaunted this for a little while.

One of my favourite hair accessories is that ankara bow - I seem to save it for the sunniest of days.

The next week I got my hair relaxed.  That was a drama in itself, only because the place where I had originally booked, never actually opened, so had to travel across town for an walk-in appointment somewhere else.  This is the second time this has happened (different salons) to me.  If you are running late, please let the customer know, and don't just leave them hanging.   That aside, had my hair like this just shy of a week.

Then this week, got extensions fitted in for the summer...

The highlights are more pronounced than last time, but I figured summer would be a good time to change tones.  I drew inspiration from dip-dye and ombre styles, but didn't want it to be so uniform in terms of colour gradation so I dyed the bundles with various tones and spread of colour.  Also, never usually wear styles this long so it's a bit of a change in terms of length, but I'm liking it so far.

Bank Holiday Hair

Last weekend was a Bank Holiday Weekend, and what a wonderful weekend it was.  A bit of time to recharge, beautiful weather and fun hairstyles.

I went to the Afro Hair and Beauty Show for the first time in a 3 years and had a great time taking in all the hairspiration.  Of course, in true Hair Of The Day style, the weekend also marked a time of hair experimentation, where I was trying out a particular type of hairdo.  The mission?  Perfect the sideswept 'do!  The outcome?  A work in progress...

This is the look I tried out on Saturday.  Simple, loose waves, with the hair slicked down on the other side.  

I liked it, and was able to find a a way to ensure the hair stayed on that side.  On Sunday I wanted to something similar, but with more curls, so it was inevitably shorter.  Same idea though.

I thought I preferred this style when I did it on Sunday.  I thought it was an overall cuter style with the small curls, but in hindsight, I can't really choose!  I guess part of wearing a style is how it feels on the day too.  

On Monday, I decided to let loose with the sideswept and added some voluminous curls to the left side of my hair.  Ran my fingers through it a few times and BAM!  Big hair, shoulder length hair. Oh big hair, how I had missed thee.

What do you think?  Which look do you like best, and why?

Birthday Hair Of The Day

Hey you (yes, you)! Last week was my birthday, so in true Hair of The Day style, my celebratory hairstyle was on my mind. Prior to what can only be described as the  Red Velvet Cake Consumption of 2013, I perused my file of styles (an actual paper file - yes I've gone analog).  and eventually decided to go for defined spiral curls, as you can see below!

New Hair Update

Hello people, it's been a while, because I've been super super busy, and therefore unable to blog:-( Nonetheless, here's an update! Woot *celebratory fist pumps ahoy* After wearing my last style for about 3 months, decided I needed something fresh and a little different. What did I do, then? I added some more volume and length, with honey brown highlights. Let's see how this goes... What do you think?
