Contributor | Essential Hair Tools 101

Hello! My name is Jo and I blog over at Lost in the Haze. Today I decided to do something a little different.. This may have been partially (or slightly more!) influenced by the fact that both myself and my partner/photographer are slightly under-the-weather this week, but who am I to let that stop us posting ; )

Today I'm here to talk about hair. Or more specifically - the essential tools for creating good hairstyles.

1. Bobby pins.
Every girl knows this. Bobby pins are an essential to creating gorgeous hairstyles and preventing flyaways. Hey, even guys like them too - mostly for their other uses though, including picking locks or pushing that tiny little button that removes your iPhone sim card. You can use bobby pins to create pin curls, or even to hold braids in place - like I did for my last tutorial on twist Heidi braids.

2. A teasing comb.
A teasing comb is my go-to tool when I want bigger hair. I find that my hair grips quite well, so I usually don't even have to use hairspray! I'll reach for my teasing comb whenever my hair is looking the slightest bit flat. I'll backcomb it for that perfect amount of volume - and even more so when I'm creating one of my signature beehives (see above!)

3. Blowdryer.
A good ol' blow wave is the perfect way to get salon ready hair! I'll admit - my blowdryer skills are definitely not the best, though I'm determined to practice! Use a round brush and gently turn it in as you dry, and you will get the best curls you've ever seen.

Thanks again for reading! Hopefully I'm feeling in better shape before my next contributor post - I love creating hair tutorials to share! P.s. Be sure to come and visit me over on my fashion blog!

  3. What lens have you used in this post? Pretty pics!

  4. I've been trying to learn how to blowdry my hair properly too, and it's so hard isn't it?! I find it such a juggle using the brush and hairdryer at the same time! It's one of those 'real adult' life skills, I think :) Lovely post!

  5. Loveee that braided hairdo! Amazing.
