toni&guy hair meet wardrobe : classic

This post is sponsored by Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe

Inspired by the super sleek glossy hair at the Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe sponsored show - Matthew Williamson - For today's look we decided to go with a really straight sleek 'do. Mark Hampton created a look that was a real departure from the usual Matthew Williamson hair style (think super sleek blow dry). Instead opting for a ponytail to add a little twist, all the while being super wearable. I'll go over the hair look in full in a few days though as a round up post of my backstage experience on the Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe shows. As my hair is pretty short, we tried a ponytail but it’d just look like a little tuft! So we went for a super sleek straightened out bob with plenty of Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Classic Shine Serum for a high gloss finish!

Now, I can count the times I’ve worn my hair super sleek on my hand since becoming and adult. After spending most of my life straightening the shizz out of my already poker straight hair, it’s become a rare sighting for me to have such smooth hair. I am the Queen of lived in texture. I’ll admit I’m not a huge fan of the sleek look on me. Bedhead is my thing, but sometimes it looks really lovely and timeless. Somehow it conjures up a real 70’s look on me. Which went really well with my outfit today. Although I dressed super casual, the paisley was a nod to the decade and the pink coat added a really retro twist to a classic item.
What do you think of this look?

  12. I love the super straight look with your haircut because its such a blunt cut with a really straight edge it makes you look so high fashion! (it makes sense in my head)
