Beach Babe Bridal Hair and Bold Black Lashes

This soft and effortlessly gorgeous bridal hairstyle really draws attention to the eyes and keeps long hair tamed during a summer wedding. Teamed with a flawless complexion and soft pink blush, these beach babe curls look amazing.

Creating the curls

To get the look, section the hair off from ear-to ear and tie the top into a knot ready for later. Take the lower section and tie it into a bun at the back of the head, securing it with pins.

Then take the top section of the hair and create some beach waves with a curling tong. Twist and fix it with spray to set the curl. Take the curls and secure them around the bun at the back, making sure to leave a loose curl to frame the face and that the bun is concealed.

Fix with spray and keep the curls relaxed and slightly tousled for an effortless look! You can add flowers and gems for more sparkle! Check out my short-hair-rescue tips for some more ideas: https://kelliwaldock.co.uk/2018/05/22/short-hair-rescue-three-styles-for-any-occasion/

Try it…  How does it look?

Timeless Beauty – ciao Bella!

I love this picture of Hannah Bella from a photoshoot we did three years ago, so you can imagine how pleased I felt when I saw she reposted it just recently.

Hannah still loves this look too- it’s timeless and as show-stopping now as it was back then!

Hannah’s eyes are really attention-grabbing in this picture. I used an intense black kohl liner on both the upper and lower lids and then used a lash curler and some additional lashes, then emphasised the look with lashings of black mascara on the upper and lower lashes for a totally hypnotic effect.

The black brings out the warm brown tone in Hannah’s eyes. I’ve created a totally air-brushed finish for Hannah’s skin, so she has a soft-focus finish, and rounded off the look with a bright and slightly shimmery tropical pink lip colour which perfectly suits Hannah’s porcelain skin tone, not to mention that flower in Hannah’s naturally tousled hair! Gorgeous Hannah! Have you got any timeless make-up looks that you love as much now as you did when you used to wear them?

Best #hair-related stocking fillers for #Christmas

Christmas is the time of year for fun, frolics and present giving. It’s a time when we all seem to be wracking our brains for ideas about what to buy. Whether it’s for your fabulously fashionable friend or the girl who has everything, it’s always nice to get some inspiration. With that in mind, check out some of the best hair-related stocking fillers that your hair-loving loved ones might well love!

Mini gift set: 

It’s Christmas and what would Christmas be without a gift set or two. It may be a shampoo and conditioner, hair styling, travel size or maybe even a luxury treatment set. Christmas mini gift sets always seem to always come in a nice presentation pack too – perfect!

Detangling brush: 

A detangling brush is an absolute must for any hair care fan and one of those gifts that will get constant use all year round. Get someone a detangling brush and although they might not be immediately overwhelmed, they’ll certainly be very appreciative in the long run! Depending on who you’re buying for, your budget and their tastes, there’s a lot of different styles and brands to choose from, and some pretty cool colours too. It’s also a handy item for anyone to keep in their everyday bag!

Hair bands: 

Yes, there are some really stylish hair bands out there but this is also a time to go for something a little funkier. After all we are talking about a stocking filler so there has to be an element of fun. How about a festive-themed Christmas decoration hair band? A novelty band that fits in with the personality of the person you’re buying maybe? There are so many hair bands to choose from and they should garner a laugh.

Clips, slides and pins: 

You could approach this stocking filler as a stocking up exercise and be practical by going for plain accessories. After all, you can never have enough accessories to hold your style in place, and they do go missing from time to time. Or you could be a little more creative and go for more stylish clips, slides or pins; the sort of accessories that compliment an outfit, rather than simply stop your hair from losing its shape.

Hairbrush and comb set: 

Rather than a brush or a comb, why not combine the two? Look out for gift-wrapped sets, products that can conveniently fit into a handbag or ones that you can add a special touch to with personalisation.

Hair chalks: 

Hair chalks allow you to temporarily alter the colour of your hair and are great fun. Packs usually come with an assortment of colours, are really easy to apply and should wash out with shampoo. Given that Christmas is party season they can make a perfect gift for the girl who loves a night out and a different look each time.

Hopefully that’s given you plenty of food for thought and some inspiration for your Christmas shopping. From gifts sets and pretty accessories to hair chalks and a detangling brush, you’ve now got plenty of hair-related stocking fillers to choose from.
