Well this one is a bit long overdue isn’t it? Seeing as my long to short lock transformation happened last year and I’m now in pretty desperate need of a trim there’s probably been more appropriate times to do this, but I’m kinda liking the mid-length for now and there’s a small, but perfectly formed edit of products that I thought I’d better get round to sharing. It’s parred back, but my hair’s been lapping it up and while we’re on the subject of my mop I’d thought I’d beef it up into a ‘101’ episode, also giving you the low-down on three ridiculously simple styles that I like to whip up, all using just one styling tool. Easy peasy, you know me…

    OOh, you’ve got some lovely shiny locks there!! I know what you mean about feeling like a ‘grown-up’ with shoulder length hair – after a trip to the Vidal Sassoon hair academy recently I came out 4″ shorter (follicle-wise) and felt like a new woman! All for a bargains £12 – best hair cut I’ve ever had.

  • Josie

    I’ve always been a head and shoulders fan, even though I don’t need it for the dandruff control! Great video, I love how you style your hair. You have such shiny and healthy looking hair.

    I loved this video, Anna! I can toot my own horn about my makeup skills, but I am quite lazy/clueless when it comes to hair. I really do need to use my straightener more often and you’re tempting me with both the Head & Shoulders thickening spray and the Bumble&Bumble leave-in! xo

  • Lauren S

    I’m amazed you got such awesome waves from straighteners, I can’t get to grips with it !
    Your hair is so amazing, it’s mad how fast it grows

  • nueyork

    Your hair looks so magical in the picture! I use the same technique to curl my hair, I love not having to worry about bringing tons of styling tools with me on the go.

  • ladyporter

    You have the most perfect hair I’ve ever seen, and I really like the ombre on you :)

    oh Anna, you have wonderful hair! and if you want more volume at your roots you could change your routine to overhead blow-drying :)
    I’m always about the easiest hair styles as well.. messy bun at home, straight with a bit of volume on the top when I’m out and about. curling with a straightener is something that hasn’t worked for me though. but I’m a bit of a hair styling noob I must admit… 😉

  • Mika

    I enjoyed this post but I felt part of it felt like an ad for Head and Shoulders. Were you in way asked to promote those three products?

  • Hannah Moseley

    Seeing what lovely condition your hair is in is making me itch to have mine cut! I’m 20 and in that ‘I want long Rapunzel hair’ phase (on a student budget which means I have split ends for days!) Fab video though, will definitely give your curling technique a whirl :)

  • Cherie Amour

    Love the quality of your video and your beauty tips!

  • Blushing Betta

    I love your wavy hair trick with the straightener! Dying to try it out :)

  • Bella

    You have the best hair ever, seriously. And it’s “pared back”, not “parred”. (Only mentioning because it’s the second time you’ve used it.)

  • Kate Wilson
  • CassandraMyee

    Your hair is always looking gorgeous! I feel like it has grown so much over a very quick period of time!!
