My Wedding - - HAIR & BEAUTY -

What do you love about Kiwi women’s ap­proach to hair styling?

It’s re­laxed and beau­ti­ful.

What is your top tip for how to make our hair look great with just a minute to spare – think of busy mums?

Mas­ter the pony­tail. It’ll be the best foun­da­tion for a cute up­style or the saviour you need to look slick and sharp in 60 sec­onds flat.

Tell us about your favourite styling trick us­ing VS Sas­soon Curl Se­cret and how we can achieve it?

My favourite thing to do with the VS Sas­soon Curl Se­cret is the Hol­ly­wood wave. It takes the guess­work out of how to curl your hair.

How to achieve it:

Your sec­tions need to be ap­prox­i­mately ½ to one inch, and the aim is to get each sec­tion as curly as pos­si­ble so that when you get to the brush­ing out step there is room for the curl to re­lax. Use heat set­ting num­ber 2 and time for 12 sec­onds to achieve this. Once all your hair is curled and each sec­tion has been al­lowed to cool, sim­ply brush through your hair us­ing a soft bris­tle brush and smooth a small amount of po­made/serum over your hair - it will fall into the waves al­most by it­self.

Any tips for how to best store the prod­uct and help it to re­tain its qual­ity for longer?

This is go­ing to sound sim­ple but the best place to start to en­sure the longevity of your prod­uct is to keep it off the bath­room bench when you’re not us­ing it. This will lessen the chance of it end­ing up on the floor! Se­condly, in­stead of wrap­ping the elec­tri­cal cord around the prod­uct, sim­ply fold the cord up in a cir­cle and then wrap a piece of Vel­cro tape around the cen­tre to form a fig­ure 8 (like how it looked when you first took it out of the box). This stops the cord of be­ing dam­aged or pulling out of the base of the prod­uct.

What is your favourite thing about the prod­uct?

My favourite thing about the VS Sas­soon Curl Se­cret is the fact that there is fi­nally a curl­ing ap­pli­ance that en­ables you to get a beau­ti­ful con­sis­tent curl and doesn’t leave fish­hooks on the ends of your hair.
