Word of July: Hair

A couple of months back, I started watching the TV series Hair. For those who didn't see it, it's kind of like Project Runway for hairstylists. My favourite contestant was a woman called Dominika, and I was far more interested in her own hair than what she did to her models'! Every episode, she had the craziest, most wonderful hairstyles and I got real hair envy.

You see, being born with super curly, frizz-prone hair is not great. As a teenager, I had to watch all my friends get awesome pixie crops, fringes and, later, emo styles. All this time, I was stuck with two plain old hairstyles: Long curly or short curly.

Then, in 2013, I discovered the wonders of GHDs and minimal hair washing. I started growing my hair and now it's exactly how I want it: Long, straight and, thanks to fewer washes, smooth! No frizz here thanks.

The problem is, I never had those teenage years of experimentation and now I don't have a clue what to do with it. I have three go-to hairstyles: Loose, ponytail or plait. Woohoo, adventurous! So, this month, I plan to make like Dominika and go wild with my hair!

Just two goals this month, then, and they are:

  • Devise four new (preferably simple) hairstyles.
  • Practise my wedding hairstyle since I'm doing my own.
Wish me luck, and if you have any advice or hints, let me know! 


  1. Her hair is so cool! I'm awful with doing hair! I've never had frizzy hair so don't know that pain, and I'm very lucky that my hair is very long, glossy and healthy BUT it's so so straight and can be too limp sometimes :( if I curl it no matter what I use or try it all falls out within two hours! So I'm stuck with permanently straight hair! And cos it's so smooth and silky it never stays in a style it all falls out and goes stupidly limp wah :( xo

    1. I'm terrible too! I'm thinking about getting it straightened permanently.

  2. I'm excited about seeing you get ready on your wedding day! x

  3. Try a plait around the top of your head. Very pretty and minimal effort. I'm also cursed with frizzy curly hair
