Monday Hair….*

Most mornings I wake up with a messy, not- so- cute – mop on top of my head and wonder ‘what the eff am I going to do with my hair?’ Aggressively hitting snooze for the first hour might be my first problem, however beauty sleep is cardinal so I snooze it out. Thank god for bobby pins and a few of my trusty hair products that tame my tresses and assist with getting my ass heels out the door on time.

I like Monday hair, better known as Saturday evening leftovers.  It’s the lovely barrel curls or silky sleek blow out you took so much time to do on Saturday that gets you right into Monday. Unwashed hair is so much easier to work with when you’re throwing it up or trying to get that messy bun or pony look, the perfect Monday no fuss hair.

Being a ‘hair down’ type a girl I have to be creative and find ways to mix it up and be the opposite of boring. Today I had great Monday hair, I swept my caramel locks off my face, added a little volume and out the door I went!.
When there’s no time to wrap sections around a barrel iron or spend an hour on a sleek blow out give yourself a top knot, pin it back in a messy bun or rock a fun pony, you could be really audacious and throw on a head band….

My top products for the looks above:

1. Re Shaper by Sebastian Professional –  strong-lasting, re-shapable spray.

2. Texture Touch by Wella Professional – Reworkable Clay that you can work your style and re shape. Defines, separates and builds volume.
Start by melting a small amount across your fingertips, then sculpt into dry hair.

3. Simmer Delights by Wella Professional – mist on finished hair for a shiny appearance and enhance your style.
If you think there’s nothing you can do with your hair, it’s all in your head!
And there you have it, Monday Hair….*
Happy first day of five!

That extra half inch….

Contrary to popular opinion, my favorite phrase is not “Happy Hour”. Nor is it “Shoe Sale at Holt’s!”. Or even, “Anybody want to go shopping?”  No, my friends. My very favorite phrase, the sentence that makes me start dancing on the spot for joy is: “Friday!!”.

This Friday means two things, a) The count down for cocktail time has started (I haven’t sipped wine for an entire week) and b) I’m only 8 hours away from being 4 inches shorter. The heels are checking out at exactly 5pm and I’ll be in flats most of the weekend, unless of course I head down to some TIFF wrap up parties –  in that case for a few hours I’ll need that extra half-inch.

I have no real agenda for the weekend, I’m simply going to wing it. Occasionally I like it that way. However, if I plan to go cocktailing with the stars I will need to plan my outfit….

What would I wear…

 

A little chevron party dress…

The perfect YSL shade on my lips…

I’ll have to wear a fabulous pair of heels…

and draw on flawless wing tips….

And maybe mess my bun up a little…

Cheers to the freaking weekend…

Happy Friday!
