Jo’s Top 5 Hair Styling Products…
Oribe Dry Texturizing spray…
This stuff is a dream come true and smells divine but at £38 a bottle it’s not cheap. Create sexy tousled hair and volume, simply spray into blow dried hair. I love it for half up styles too that need a bit of oomph! It feels invisible and soaks up natural oils like a very cool dry shampoo. I cannot live without it for the scent alone. Perfect if your stylist has told you not to wash your hair the day of your wedding – Wash it the night before and use this to freshen up or wash it on the day and use to and add grip!. BOOM!’
LOVE this stuff, definitely my go to product for adding texture and without it going TOO crunchy, it gives more of a soft powdery finish and it smells AMAZING Spray through tousled hair for desired effect. If funds don’t stretch to Oribe this is a definitely a close second option.’
You can’t beat Bumble & Bumbles salt spray, simply spray at your hair and watch the beachy texture appear. Magic. Or looking for more waves? Twist into knots, hold the ends and push up with your other hand to create texture, let go and voila! Great for prepping hair ready to pin up too – especially for hair that is ‘fuzzy, fluffy’ and a bit out of control. This will help contain your hair without leaving it too polished looking.
Or just do it properly and go for a surf the morning of your wedding :) refreshing, fun, stress relieving and surf chick hair-afying! Bliss..’
Not a mousse as we know it- Not a bit crunchy nor does it leave a residue. I use it on every bride to prep their hair weather they are wearing it up or down. To prep I brush through dry hair, then blow dry the product into the hair. Perfect if you are thinking of pinning hair up.
It gives awesome volume and shine too. I use it for the ‘double blowdry’ – Apply to damp hair, rough dry until 90% dry, add some more and blow dry section by section using a round brush. Gawgeous results every time!!’
I may be a hair stylist but don’t think i spend loads of time on my own hair! Life is far too short so if I can get away with a quick fix, trust me. I will! This styling cream is fantastic for the summer, you can pop some on the mid lengths and ends of your hair and leave to air dry (See ‘How to be Parisian’)
It kind of smoothes but not totally, adds texture but not really. I don’t know what it does, but I can’t live without it. It’s just good.
Some days, I can get away with washing my hair before bed, putting this through to the ends (important bit!) and going to sleep. When I wake up I have lovely soft waves without doing a thing. So if you’re a wee bit lazy/busy/knackered, this one’s for you!
