Loop It Like Beckham

If there is one thing I’ve learned in my years of struggling with hair in general is that the easiest, EASIEST hair style is a loop ponytail. Not a regular pony, not twist updos, nothing that requires bobby pins or styling products. For the perfect loop ponytail all you need is an elastic hair tie, hair longer than 10inches and inspiration from fall 2015 runway shows, starting with Victoria Beckham.

Long Live The Brush

Here comes something only people with frizzy hair would understand: there’s a moment after you brush-dry your hair and look at the crazy ass reflection of yourself in the mirror and think “is it just me or do I look so ridiculous that it is actually pretty cool?”. However for most people that moment of bravery ends by the time they leave the bathroom and never see sunlight, like yours truly. Sometimes my hair gets so weird I have to show my husband or whoever is around at the time, usually for fun but maybe deep down to get a validation to embrace my frizzy curls and get an applause for having such enviable, original looking hair – which almost never happens, unfortunately. But I think I found the thumbs up I was looking for thanks to beautiful Felicity Jones in February issue of Vogue UK. Long live the comb, long live the brushed out curls! (Or else I won’t be able to live long straightening my hair every single day).

Ombre is Not Dead

Of all the hair trends that have come and gone, I never thought ombre would be one to stick around this long. Not only it stuck around pretty good and never lost its charm, it actually got way more fun during the journey. Before, I thought that being a dark brunette was a challenge and I found it very hard to look elegant with a blonde ombre – the shade and shadowing can make you or break you. While that fact still is valid, pastel hair tips and dual color options make ombre possible for every hair type. I’m getting mine in two days (check my instagram to see the result, hopefully if it doesn’t turn out to be a disaster) and I encourage everyone to step in 2015 with a bit of hair fun.
