Here are my five go-to looks:
I’ve recently rediscovered my love for headbands. They remind me so much of my childhood, when I was growing my fringe out and I would wear headbands all. the. time. I had an all-time favourite one and can still picture it in my mind today. A headband is perfect for everyday wear, especially for me while travelling, as it’s a super easy, quick and cute style to put together in a hurry.
I’m completely obsessed with braids and have been for quite some time. I learnt to French braid at a young age by watching my mum braid mine and my sisters’ hair and I’ve recently mastered the fishtail braid too! The best part? A braid is such a versatile style to wear, never looks boring and gives my hair a wave that is perfect for the following day!
I’m a big proponent of the top knot or bun when I want my hair out of my face. It still looks great even when my hair is a day or two old and not freshly washed and I can wear it messy or neat, depending on how it turns out on any particular day!
I used to think ponytails were the epitome of boring on me (mainly because we HAD to wear our hair like this every single day to school – it was a school rule and part of the dress code) and I’ve struggled to embrace them since, even as an easy style for work. However, I’ve really changed my mind about ponytails since travelling. I love that I can wear it sleek, high, messy or low. The versatility is great and oh so easy to style!
While I rarely go to the effort of properly sectioning and straightening my hair, I often run my GHD quickly over the top layer of my hair and the front sections that frame my face. If I’ve actually gone to the trouble of properly straightening it, then I usually like to wear it down, and my sleek, straight hair lasts until the next wash!
