3 x easy hairdos

Maksettu kaupallinen yhteistyö Elnett:n kanssa// Paid collaboration with Elnett

The party season is here, and for me that means more photo shoots, events and gettogethers where I want to look a bit extra glam. In this post, I will share three easy styling tips for the hair.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about Elnett and some of you might be more familiar with it than others, but I’ve personally used it and loved it for many years. It is the perfect everyday/ every look hairspray, because the formula is very lightweight, has a nice scent and doesn’t leave the hair sticky, hard or feeling dry. (Inside information alert! Elnett hairspray, is also one of those products that most hair stylist always have in their work kit at photo shoots/back stage)

Anyways, I will now demonstrate three easy hairdos and the products that were used when I got pampered a couple weeks back. Best of all is that I wanted to get hairdos that can be made three days in a row, because my hair has most volume when it’s newly washed and blow-dried and stays up better after a day or two.

The day started at 10 am at hair salon Blend and let me just say that I love when I get to be part of photo shoots that are arranged by someone else but myself and Juuli. Breakfast at set and the possibility to only focus on being in front of the camera is pure joy. Usually, I’m all over the place ironing, checking the hair and makeup and going through briefs, while trying to coordinate everything at once, hehe.

The first look Style is all about volume. I love volume and feel at my best when my hair is fluffy and big. For maximized volume with a soft feel, we used Elnett Extravagant Volume. I love that my hair moves naturally while it looks thick and full!

For the second day look we wanted to create an Unstyled look that’s still festive and fun. We just brushed out the hair and used a flat iron and styled it with a simple necklace that can of course be any necklace. I really loved this idea, since it’s just a more glamorous version of the tucked in turtle neck hairdo ;). For this look, we used Elnett Precious Oil hairspray. Perfect for dry hair and ends since it contains argon oil and is suitable for blow-drying and hot styling tools.

Last but not least, day three: Restyle. Day three is a hair up must for me. My hair has strong whirls, therefore the dirtier my hair gets, the stronger the whirl in the back of my head shows. Whenever I put my hair up and want a strong hold, I always spray all over my hair first, and then I brush it all back and style it. This way, I get all of my baby hair in place and the hairdo looks sleek and polished. For this last look, my hairstylist of the day Laura created a very festive up-do by using Elnett Extra Strong hairspray. The formula has a very strong hold but doesn’t make the hair hard or wet looking. By the end of the day, my hair still felt natural and soft and was easy to brush out. 

Wishing you nothing but good hair days for the upcoming party season!

Scarf it

hair,15 August 2019

I’ve surprised myself this summer. Remember when I promised to only use paraben and sulphate free haircare products, not blow-dry or style my hair, and put extra effort into my haircare routine this summer? Well guess what, I did it! I removed my extensions in the beginning of summer and after only using these shampoos I wrote about earlier, I feel like my hair is finally recovering. It feels so much fuller and healthier.

Now when my hair feels so much better, I’m so much more excited to accessorize my hair with cool headbands, pins and scarfs! The loosely tied silk scarf is my number one favorite accessory right now, and the best thing about it is, that it’s extremely gentle on the hair too :D! I love to have good and healthy hair, so I’m gonna to try to continue with my new routine. However, life is too short to be good all the time and it’s really boring, so every now and then I’m gonna go completely crazy (hehe) and curl, straighten, blow-dry, tease, die and spray as much as I want to. Just because I want to feel super-hot every now and then ;). Who’s with me?
