With the cooler weather comes the desire to stay in bed for longer - think cold mornings under the doona dreaming of summer on a tropical island, sigh! Then reality kicks in and you lose all enthusiasm when it comes to doing your hair for the day.
Let me tell you this, you don’t have to give in to a bad hair day for the sake of some quality shut eye. With a little help from these must have hair accessories, you’ll be leaving the house with the perfect do every day.
First things first, start by giving your hair a good brush, both before and after you dry it. Sounds obvious right?!
Add extra volume – without the product
Whether you’re normally one to use product or not, it’s always a good idea to style and dry your hair using a round brush such as the Freestyle Shape- Ceramic Round Brush. Using a round brush when blow-drying your hair helps to add volume, smooth or curl the hair but they are also ideal for straightening the hair – bonus!
The great thing about styling your hair when blow-drying is that even if you wash and dry your hair the night before, chances are that your hair will remain full of volume giving you extra time in the morning.
Curls get the girls!
Unfortunately in the cooler weather we see more wind and rain, which often causes havoc to our hair. I can hear you all asking, why spend time straightening your hair when the wind or rain will mess it up anyway, right?
Freestyle Bendy Rollers not only look super cool and exciting, but they are super easy to use and create the perfect curl – whether you’re after small tight ringlets or large curls, these bendy curlers are adjustable to create just about anything you want.
The great thing is that they can be applied to wet or dry hair. To apply simply section the hair and start by wrapping the hair around the end of the roller until it reaches the scalp. Then, bend the roller into a circular shape to lock it in – no clips required.
Why not pop them in straight after your morning shower and leave them in until you need to leave the house. To take them out, simply straighten the roller and unravel – voila!
Tie it up!
Ah yes, on the days you just can’t get your hair right or you just cant be bothered (don’t judge, we’ve all been there!) - simply tie it up. A high bun, a low bun, a high pony, a braided do, whatever your style, you’re going to need the right tools in place to make it work and what better way than the trusty bobby pin – or a hundred.
Gliders Bobby Pins come in packs of 36 and are available in both black and brown to blend into most hair colours. For the bobby pin enthusiasts who continually ask “where the hell are my bobby pins going?” Freestyle offer 250g packs in Black, Brown and Blonde. Surely, that’ll get you through.
Lastly – why not throw away your boring ponytail holders and add some style to your Autumn hairdo with Gliders Soft Ties instead?! These pretty girl, soft feel bands are available in fashion colour palettes Candy Crush, Neon Glam and Pastel Party. The best part? They double up as super cute wristbands.
What are you waiting for, beauties? Say goodbye to Autumn bad hair days now!
