Look of the day: big curls and blue

This is just a quick post – dedicated to my hair!!  I recently bought some of the TREsemme volume hair tongs.  They were really cheap – £19.99 in Superdrug, plus I got 10% student discount.  I already have some gas cartridge hair tongs which I love, but I really wanted these because they have a large barrel – I would say nearly twice as big as my Babyliss tongs.  This is designed to give big, volumous curls.  It is pretty good – comes with its own special mat, and is pink so matches my bedroom well 🙂  It has very high temperature settings (I’ve not even used the hottest, I think it may be too hot) and heats up really quickly – not as quick as GHDs, but still pretty quick.


Since using the Redken Shampoo I can’t stop touching my hair and so have been styling it quite a lot.  Today I did the big curls, and put on a blue top and a blue turban hat with red lipstick.  I really liked the look – it felt quite 70s glam!
