Second to the fatal fashion faux pas that is showing up to a party dressed in exactly the same outfit as your sworn enemy, a bad hair day is every woman’s worst nightmare. As somebody who cherishes every blissful moment of sleep, but also likes to make her best effort to look remotely chic and stylish, I am often torn in the mornings. Do I snooze my alarm just one more time*, or do I hop out of bed, jump in the shower and get to work on my locks?
*it is never ever just one more time. Ever.
This morning, I awoke from my heavenly slumber completely and utterly perished. My mum promptly informed me that her car thermostat was reading at -2 degrees (welcome to British winter), and I just could not bring myself to get out of my bed which always seems that little bit comfier of a morning. Alas, I arrived to work with dull, flat and rather limp hair. It was a sure sign that today was going to be a bad day. Luckily, the few female colleagues I have are equally as keen to upkeep a somewhat classy appearance, and are renowned for their well-equipped desk drawers. Cupboards that should contain paperwork and stationary are abundant with hairbrushes, makeup, mirrors and the subject of my most heartfelt gratitude, hair curling wands.
My lovely colleagues quickly got to work on my hair, partitioning my layers as they went to create the perfect balance of voluminous, bouncy curls.
The Remington T-Studio Ceramic PEARL Professional Curling Wand retails at prices varying from £18.75-£30.00 depending upon which retailer you visit, and it is without hesitation a must have for all hair care mavens. I believe that I have discovered the holy grail to perfect curls that even Carrie Bradshaw would be proud of, sashaying through the busy streets of Manhattan, adorned with a tutu and matching clutch. An easy to achieve look that takes approximately ten minutes to achieve, it is the perfect solution for early morning hair styling. Say goodbye to bad hair days forever!
Do you swear by a particular hair curling wand? I’d love to know about it!
