This afternoon I went to check out Toni & Guy's pop-up Blow Out Bar at Somerset House, set up especially for LFW. There were plenty of fashionistas getting their hair whipped and blow dried into all sorts of styles - Some of which you can check out on their Twitter page here, which I have been religiously following! Having always opted for a big & bouncy blow dry I decided to go for a half-up, half-down style with a little bit of loose braids on the side for good measure.
My gorgeous stylist, Sam from the Toni & Guy Teddington salon, began by creating small, tight-ish curls with label.m straighteners. Sam then started backcombing the top half of my hair, to create plenty of volume at the top, before gently teasing small sections of my hair and braiding it onto the sides.
I really liked the end result but couldn't help but think that it didn't suit me as well as it could. Later in the evening I tied up the loose curls (last picture) which I think suited me better but hey I got exactly what I asked for and it was great to experiment. All in all it is a wonderful concept and if you get the chance you should make a visit as they all have skilled hands and can do nearly anything you ask for! Ps. They do amazing braided hairstyles.
Thank you TONI&GUY and label.m for the complimentary treatment :)
