BED HEAD: Cure it or Own it?

August 23, 2014

Morning loves!

I have a confession to make now that I am a mom with 2 'lil babes- I have been finding it hard to take care of me.  I mean, I am suffering from seriously crazy bed head, make-up from the night before, and (I hate to admit it!), but my teeth may or may not be brushed. It is not pretty folks...

I don't know about you, but if I have a shower before bed, I have to make sure my hair is thoroughly dry- which is a pain! If not, I suffer the consequences of SEVERE bedhead, and I am not talking about the 'cute beachy look' of pretty misguided waves of hair.

Imagine more like: I've just stuck my finger in a socket!

So I texted my fabulous stylist Yuko and asked her "what is the best way for me to wake up with stylish no fuss hair...?"

I'm good with all the basics:
  • Wash hair
  • Towel dry so that is is a little bit damp 
  • Place in braids/or buns
  • Sleep
  • Wake up and take down hair 
  • Hair cascades down Potia de Rossi's in Ally Mcbeal (did I just date myself?)
but after talking to Yuko, I realized I was missing a very important step.

Once you towel dry, add a curl enhancing cream.  I had no idea about this,
(If you have fine hair, this cream might be a little too heavy for you.)

VOILA!!! Beachy no-fuss waves...

Beat the Bed Head: Step 3

Own the bed head... throw you hair into a pony and then wrap a pretty scarf around your head.

These Beautiful Scarfs are created by Leah Reena Goren

Or throw hair in a high pony, tease hair, wrap it around itself into a bun, and secure it with bobby pins. Finish by spraying with a strong hold hair spray.

Here is an awesome video tutorial by the lovely Anna from the Blog Tulip Louise
