Olsen Inspired Hair

I have always loved Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's hair! Unfortunately my hair just seems to go frizzy when I try to go for that bed-head, loose curls look, but today I managed to tame the frizz and achieve something slightly similar (I think anyway) So I thought I would do a bit of a hair of the day and show you all how I achieved this look...

Products I used - 
Bed head ego boost- leave in conditioner
Schwarzkopf got2b guardian angel - heat protector
Bed head - head rush
Bed head - uptight (heat activated curl maker)

I washed my hair, then towel dried it and applied the leave in conditioner  and heat protector through the ends. I then dried my hair normally and brushed it through (otherwise my hair just turns to a frizzy mess - not pretty!) After drying it, I scrunched it with my fingers to create a tousled look, and then applied some more heat protector and the bed head uptight. I used my Babyliss curling wand and just wrapped random pieces of hair around it to create some messy but loose curls. Then to finish it off I just sprayed my hair with the head rush spray which adds shine and reduces friziness, and it smells AMAZING! That's it for what I did, I hope you liked it and it doesn't just look like I haven't brushed my hair in a few days. 
(p.s - the top picture is before I went in to school for a revision session, and the second picture is a bit later which is why its a little more poofy/frizzy. Also sorry for the bad quality photos but I couldn't get them to look right when taking them on my camera, so I used the webcam)

  3. A large part of what makes this hairstyle work is the texture and highlights to your hair. It's absolutely beautiful! Perfect for the summer, especially if you go without the heavy eye makeup the twins seem to be sporting a lot these days.

    You pull it quite well if I may say so myself.

    Thanks for posting!

  7. Your hair looks lush! I adore the Olsen's and their hair is always perfect, my hair is naturally really curly but I'd love to try this out to get looser curls.

    1. Thankyou :) Yes I would definitley recommend it, its amazing to get really tight curls with, like taylor swift or you can use its thicker end to get looser curls! But it takes a bit of practice to get used to using it :D xx

  14. Sheesh, don't get me started on the Olsens! I grew up desperately wanting their hair, especially around So Little Time/The Challenge/New York Minute!

    Your hair looks gorgeous, I can never get this look, my hair doesn't hold long, so I just don't bother :(
