my hair is the bane of my life most mornings. whatever way i sleep, i end up with a lions mane of hair matted to my face (or seaweed hair as jennie likes to call it…) it is often (spuriously) claimed (in magazines) that matted-bed-hair can resemble the wonderfully volumised, surfer-chic style; a style i envy…but it’s all LIES. my morning hair takes a nightmarishly long time to brush through and is more electrified than volumised. and i just don’t have the time or the interest to be up washing and styling my barnet every morning. many a day have i just given up and relied on the ‘aul faithful – the messy-bun-on-top-of-head style – not really a good look on anyone – as Kate Moss repeatedly demonstrates… so on mornings that i just can’t be arsed to wash my hair, (but not looking for the Croydon Facelift), i say hurrah for dry hair shampoo, bobby pins and some easy-to-do-plaits. a plait brightens up any dull hairstyle. whether it be one at the front ( hiding that greasy fringe you just didnt get a chance to wash ), a full plait up do, or a side plait, you’ll look like you put effort into your bouffant. see below for how-to and how-not-to…
