spray-bobby-pinsDo your bobby pins tend to slide out? Try hitting them with a quick spray of hairspray or dry shampoo before you use them. This gives them a little extra grip so they actually snag the hair and helps prevent them falling out, this is especially helpful on fine, straight or thin hair, So why not try this;

1.Place your bobby pins on a paper towel or tissue

2. Give them a light spray, and then allow them to dry for a minute or two

3. Insert them into your hair. .

Emma Watson came out sporting a new Long concave bob (Lob) this Christmas. This is such a popular cut at the moment and why wouldn’t it be? It’s elegant, simple and versatile being great from everyone from a fashionista to the wash and wear

Since her shoot to stardom in the Harry Potter movies playing the role as “Hermione”, this A-lister has seen many different styles from the long luscious locks of her early teens, the pixi cut and of course her messy styles of 2014.

If you are looking to go a long bob remember that longer oval face shapes suit the style best but a great hairdresser can cut it to suit your hairs shape and texture. Come in and see our hairdressers at Taigum, Toombul and Strathpine for consultation and quote for more info.

33-lily-collins-textured-bob“This is ‘cool-girl’ with a little bit of a ’90s feel,” says hairstylist Mara Roszak, who gave Lily Collins the style seen here. To get it, apply Volumizer Spray to damp hair and rough-dry it, smoothing just the top and front pieces with a medium-size round brush. “You want to make sure you’re keeping the volume and not blow-drying hair straight,” she says. The next step is to randomly curl sections around the head using a one-inch curling iron, making sure to keep the ends straight. Roszak then suggests spraying a volumizer. Spray a sea salt style tonic all over for added texture, before adding a soft moulding wax through the ends only for a piecey, less polished feel.

After flatironing your hair, smooth Argan or another light Hair Oil over the bristles of your brush and use it to smooth the hair into a side ponytail. “It imparts a tiny amount of product and gives shine,” he

31-badgley-mischka-spring-2014-hairstyleThe ’20s-inspired look from the spring 2014 Badgley Mischka
show would feel perfectly at home on the red carpet. Start with a
small, hidden horizontal braid at the nape of the neck. Then dab a lightweight defrizzing serum, onto the ends and mist in a
volumizer, such as Moroccan oil Root Boost, for texture. After a
rough blow-dry, wrap sections of hair around a one-and-a-halfinch curling iron. Then comb out each section with a skinny brush to achieve soft waves. Twist your hair into a small, loose roll and use U-shaped pins to attach it to the braid underneath. Finish with a shine spray.

sleek—and incredibly easy to replicate. To get it, flatiron your hair and secure the top section, combed to the exact width of the clip, with a barrette. “It’s about gorgeous American beauty,” says hairstylist Eugene Souleiman, who created the look.

27-banded-braidMake a simple braid look special with an amped-up version of the headbands and prim braids models wore at the fall 2013 Valentino show. First, smooth hair with a styling cream and blow-dry it with a flat brush. Create a low ponytail at the nape of your neck and secure it with an elastic, then make a loose braid and add another elastic at the end. Finish the look with a one-inch headband (bonus points if it’s sleek and black).

25-perfect-ponytailWhen you want a smooth, sleek style like this one, place a flat nozzle on your blow-dryer and blast the strands at your hairline straight back, using your fingers as a guide. This helps the roots lie flat, says Guido. To keep the pony in place, try a bungee, says hairstylist Yann Varin. This kind of elastic has a hook on each end, meaning you can adjust the tightness before you secure it.
