Sometimes it feels like looking good is a full time job…and we’ve already got one of those! So check out these tips to help you look stunning at all times, even when you’ve got a deadline looming.
1. Master the up do.
Washing, drying and styling hair everyday really eats into your precious time so become an expert in creating a stylish do in 5 minutes flat. Dry shampoo is key to this look: spray it into the roots of your hair, massage it in and then brush it out to instantly refresh your hair. This wonder product (how did we live without it?!) will boost volume and will give your hair that on-trend “bed-head” look, as well as making it far easier to style. Next, lightly back comb hair at the crown to add height and pull the hair back into a loose chignon, teasing out tendrils to frame the face. Pin the hair at the back, spray with hairspray to fix in place and there you have it: a sexy and stylish do and you’ve not even had to plug in the hair-dryer!
2. Regular maintenance.
On average, hair grows 1.5 centimetres every month, so if you have shoulder length hair, the ends will be about two years old. That’s why it’s so important to get regular trims to keep your locks looking lovely. It might feel frustrating if you’re trying to grow your hair but a visit to the stylist every 6-8 weeks will keep your do looking neat and tidy and will save you time when you’re trying to tame it. After all, a mane of dry split ends is never a good look! For the UK girls is also worth to consider services from a Mobile hair stylist in London that will save you time and money.
3. Do the prep.
When it comes to make-up, a great primer is a real investment. These products will help to disguise fine lines and keep you shine-free all day, so no need to re-apply on your lunch break. Look out for primers with light-reflecting particles to give you an instant youth- boost and to make you look radiant, even if you’ve been for after-work drinks the night before!
4. Beautify while you sleep.
Apply a nourishing hair mask before you go to bed and wake up in the morning to a gorgeous, glossy mane. Seems too good to be true, right? These intensive treatments are great for limp locks: while you snooze they work hard to condition and repair damaged hair, add shine, volume and bounce. No wonder they call it beauty sleep!
5. Get lippy.
Get on board with one of this season’s freshest and most eye-catching trends: a bright lip colour. Hot pink, coral and classic red lips were one of the hottest looks at this year’s Paris Fashion Week and, don’t tell anyone, but it’s also the simplest to recreate! The key to this look is to keep the rest of your make-up minimal: tinted moisturiser and a slick of black mascara are all you need. Then, apply a slick of bright lippy to instantly look pretty and polished: so easy you can even do it on the morning commute!
