I have to say I have absolutely loved the gorgeous weather this weekend, and it reminded me that the wedding season is only just around the corner.
If you’ve been invited to share someone’s special day this year like I have, it’s not only the dress you are going to wear that you need to think about – what on earth are you going to do for wedding hair?
Messy Up Do
I love the messy up do that all of the celebrities are wearing right now. It’s so easy to achieve, it’s bang on trend and best of all because it is supposed to look messy you can’t go wrong! Here are my tips on how you can get the look for wonderful wedding hair:
1. Wash your hair a few hours before styling to ensure your pins won’t slide out of your style.
2. Brush hair to the side with your favourite Finish brush from Goody’s Start, Style, Finish range, smoothing the front.
3. Tease hair at the back of your head from above to create texture as well as volume, back-combing with a Goody tail comb toward the scalp.
4. Pull hair back gently, lightly twisting it and pulling it sideways as you go. Create a loose loop around your fingers at the end and pin it into place using Goody Bobby Pins, then blend any loose pieces of hair into the loop and secure with Bobby Pins that match the colour of your hair. For extra secure style, criss cross pins to hold in place.
5. Finally finish with your favourite Goody accessory for perfectly finished wedding hair.
And hey don’t be afraid to play with your hair. It’s bags of fun trying new styles!

Now, with Volcanic Ash clouds and Bangkok riots causing havoc with holidays, I don’t want to tempt fate by talking holiday hair….but at the same time, it pays to be prepared, right?
Nothing beats that tousled look on the beach – but oh, if only our boyfriends knew the time it took to create that “natural” style! And as if it’s not hard enough to get good summer hair in the first place, we’ve got to battle UV rays, chlorine and salt water to get hot holiday hair. Aaagh!
Here’s my top tips for a style that’s hotter than your bikini – be sure to add yours too by commenting below:
• Stash Goody StayPut (RRP: £3.99) elastics in your beach bag to keep summer hair styles covered from the strong holiday sun. The StayPut elastics are woven with a special tread meaning they have 52% more hold than a regular band, even staying in during a swim in the sea!
• The Goody StylingTherapy add+shine brush (RRP: £8.99) is one summer hair essential I can’t leave home without. Vitamin E and jojoba oil seals in moisture to protect hair from further damage whilst adding shine.
• Alternatively for those beach blondes amongst you, try the Goody StylingTherapy protect+colour brush (RRP: £8.99) – colour matched boar bristles, infused with cermaide, smooth and protect.
• Tuck in! I don’t know about you, but I never need an excuse to eat! However, if I did, here it is: foods rich in anti-oxidants are great for nourishing summer hair. Pig out on avocados, pomegranates, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries as well as seaweed, salmon, and kidney and pinto beans for hot holiday hair which will leave you so confident you’ll forget you’re wearing a bikini!

When it comes to beauty regimes, nothing is more familiar to us girls than the daily three step ritual of cleansing, toning and moisturising. It’s often the first beauty technique we’re taught and probably the only one we religiously stick to throughout our life – or at least try to anyway!
Yet, for some unknown reason, when it comes to our hair care, which for many of us is our crowning glory, this logic seems to go straight out the window. Most of us commit countless hair-don’ts on a daily basis without a second thought, such as dragging a brush through wet hair or using whatever styling tool we have to hand to create some kind of ‘style’ that we pray will last throughout the day.
However, you’ll be pleased to hear that Goody’s come up with a simple three-step programme that will help you create the latest on trend hairstyles at home with ease. It even helps you embrace hair care without doing anything!
All you need to do is follow our three top tips below:
Always make sure you detangle your hair when it’s wet with a wide tooth comb. Start by combing at the ends of your hair and gradually working your way upwards towards the roots. This helps to avoid damaging your precious locks and prevents your hair from breaking when it’s at its most vulnerable – the ultimate tip in hair care.
Once your hair is about 75 – 80 per cent dry, you can begin styling. And the number one rule to remember here for hair care is to always choose the correct brush for whichever look you are trying to achieve. For example, for curls, use a round brush with a ceramic barrel to help evenly distribute heat, or for super sleek straight locks, select a larger round brush which offers a lightweight grip and is ion infused to fight frizz.
Last but not least, after styling with hot air, give your hair a quick blast with cold air to set your style. Finally, use a finishing tool, such as a paddle brush with anti-static technology to reduce fly aways, to keep your hair looking shiny and smooth all day.
It’s as easy as 1,2,3!

I know we’re only in April, but in my world, it’s time to start planning for summer! From holidays and hair-dos to wardrobes and warm weather, there’s so much to get excited about. And nothing’s going to be hotter this summer than the Dannii Minogue inspired crop, which is so versatile that you’ll be able to achieve all this season’s super styles, without having to make the scissors your new best friend.
So if you want to achieve Dannii’s cutest accessory (apart from her baby bump!) then follow our simple three-step process below that will teach you to Start, Style and Finish your look:
- Using your hairdryer and the Ceramic Ionic Vent Brush, blast your hair until it’s around 80 per cent dry. Then pull your hair into three sections, and loosely clip two up using Sectioning Clips.
- Select a portion of hair one to two inches thick from the unclipped section to blow-dry. Using your hairdryer and So Smart Small Hot Round Brush, start at the roots and gently pull the brush through the underside of your hair to the ends whilst blow-drying. Make sure to pull the hair away from your head, holding it taut and straightening as you go.
- Then once the underside is mostly dry, switch to the top of the section, and continue until your entire head of hair is perfectly straight.
- To finish, pop the So Smart Mini Brush in your bag for mid-party touch ups. To add versatility to your crop, pin back sections using Goody Bobby Pins to create either a sleek coiffure or plaited fringe.
