You know what it’s like: you’ve overslept, haven’t had your morning caffeine fix yet, and are in a rush to an important meeting with your bed hair sticking out all over the place! It’s worse in winter when it’s cold and dark outside – you can barley drag yourself out of bed, and you would give anything for just an extra five minutes under the duvet. At Goody, we’re all too familiar with the feeling, so to help us all overcome our morning panics we’ve devised a few top hair styling tips to have you looking glam and good to go in minutes!
From Boardroom to Bar
It’s a struggle to figure out how to style our hair for work each morning, let alone trying to work out a ‘do during the morning madness that will also be suitable for heading out with the girls straight after work too! Fortunately, our Simple Styles range offers the perfect solution:
For a great office-to-out look, why not use the Spin Pin (£4.99) to create the ideal boardroom-to-bar bun in a matter of minutes. Simply brush the hair back into a ponytail and twist into the shape of the bun. Insert the Spin Pin into the hair – twisting one in from the top and one in from the bottom – and hey presto, you’re ready to go.
Alternatively, the Modern Up-do Pin can help you create a classic chignon knot that’s perfect for going from that all important business meeting to a sophisticated dinner date in no time at all. Simply gather the hair back into a ponytail, twist it as if you are styling a bun, and then insert the Modern Up-do Pin through the base of your hair. Once in place, lift it up and then push it back down into the hair to secure.
Both the Spin Pin and the Modern Up-do Pin offer to do the job of 20 bobby pins, saving you valuable time in the morning, so you can concentrate on adding the finishing touches to your outfit or even sleeping in! What’s more, both accessories require minimal time and effort to put in the hair, so you could even recreate these styles at work before you head out!
De-bedding the Bob
Many celebs, such as Katie Holmes, have been rocking the bob for a little while now and there’s a reason why – it’s the perfect hairstyle for all us girls who like to work hard and play hard! Offering a sophisticated do that has definite wow factor, the bob is really easy to maintain, making it ideal for busy girls who need a professional daytime look that can be glammed up in an instant.
For a sleek and chic look à la Katie, just run your Goody add+shine brush through your bed-head hair to smooth out any kinks and leave you with a smooth, glossy look. Or if you prefer a bit more curl, pop in the Goody Velcro Rollers before you go to bed and when you wake in the morning you’ll have lovely, sassy curls!
Taming the Mane
Girls with longer hair should take inspiration from Drew Barrymore and Eva Longoria. Their poker straight look is easy to achieve and can deliver real impact if you have long locks. Simply use Goody’s Ceramic Ionic Straighten Brush as you blow dry – its quick dry ceramic will help to help minimise drying time, whilst its ionic properties will reduce frizz at the same time! If you have time, finish by quickly running through with your straighteners and you’ll have a perfect, polished, poker straight do that’s good to go!
Glam on the Go
Looking glam after you’ve hit the snooze button three times too many is a tricky art to master. Luckily, Goody’s accessories will have you looking fab in a second and help to divert any unwanted attention from your less than perfect last-minute locks.
Simply pull your hair back swiftly into a high pony tail using one of Goody’s Ouchless Hair Elastics, and you’ll be good to go in super-quick time. Why not add a Goody Headband for an extra chic look that’s an easy remedy for smartening up hair in time for that early morning business meeting?
Alternatively adding a sparkly slide or clip on the way to work will create an on-trend style that will have all your colleagues green with envy.
