"Cover your eyes so you don't know the secret"



My hair is naturally pretty straight with a gentle wave if I don't blow dry it and I'm not particularly adventurous with it. So when one of my besties- Olivia offered to curl it for me before our night out yesterday I was pretty excited. With it being our last ever Fresher's Week (sob sob) it seemed the perfect opportunity. It took her a LONG time and I'm now convinced she must have the patience of a saint as there is so much of my hair.

 I felt so glamourous having my hair so BIG. As we were hitting the town I teamed my curls with this new playsuit from Primark which has a gorgeous cream coloured top panel with an embellished collar, cinched in at the waist with a slim belt and my trusty New Look heels- not bad for a highstreet outfit!

What do you think of the new hair 'do? Is it worth me investing in some curling tongs and can anyone suggest any good ones?

  1. Your hair looks lovely! I use a curling wand which sees to work better for me than curling tongs. Lovely playsuit too!

  5. I'd definetly invest in some curling tongs, it really suits you. :) Big hair always adds glamour it an outfit even if you're just wearing vest top and jeans.

  6. You look absolutely beautiful Rachel! I was thinking Topshop when I saw your playsuit, PRIMARK?! That's amazing. Get me one! :)
    Your hair is also gorgeous, you should definitely invest! You could try using your straighteners first? I also have the Hedkandi Twisted Disco tongs which work brilliantly, but starighteners do seem to give my favourite curls :) xxx
