This week we enjoyed a great live video session with Style Club, showing us exactly how to do the perfect ponytail – for those mornings you’re in a hurry but still want your tresses looking fresh.
If you missed it never fear, you can check it out right here! Unfortunately, due to some hairdryers there is some noise interference at the start -skip to about 1:43 to avoid the worst of it. And don’t forget to turn on the sound after you hit play. Who said “showbiz”, wasn’t glamorous! If there were any product names you didn’t catch, Emily Bolger has kindly listed them for us below too.
If you make it in by Saturday 30th September, you’ll also save 20% when you buy two or more products. See their Facebook page for more info.
Best Hair Care
Emily advises that great styling starts in the shower – your choice of shampoo and conditioner have a big impact. Looking after your hair with the right shampoo and conditioner will make it easier to style, as well as keeping it in better condition overall. She recommends Pureology Smooth Perfection Shampoo and Conditioner. It provides some antifrizz action and has heat and colour protecting ingredients all built in – and all natural.
Best Dry Shampoo
We all know how useful dry shampoo can be when you’re stuck for time, but many of them can leave a residue that you can either feel, or in some cases, and if you use too much, that you can see. We only want that grey look when we’ve decided to go for grey right? So Emily suggests Nioxin’s Instant Fullness. It leaves no white residue, absorbs oil, and adds volume.
Emily recommends Redken Styling’s Iron Shape . Not only will it help protect against heat damage but also helps with holding your style.
Best Hair Spray
Triple Take Hair Spray Mega Hold. It feels light and also provides colour protection and antifrizz. We love a product that can mutli-task! It’s also got a multi-directional spray – meaning it’s not going to spray one direct line of hair spray, leaving some strands clumped or sticky. It’s cleverly designed nozzle helps spread across a wider surface area giving you a more even, more professional hold.
Best Product for Curly Hair
Redken’s NBD – which stands for ‘no blow dry’ is a great product for naturally curly hair. It’s perfect to mould and define curls and there are variations for your hair type – fine hair, coarse hair and medium hair. It also provides antifrizz and even helps your hair dry faster!
Best Product for Texture
If you want to get a beachy, textured effect with hold, Emily recommends Kerestase’s Spray a Porter. It’s salt-free and creates hold and texture through hair.
