Aussie virtual styling class... (PICTURE HEAVY)

On Wednesday night, myself and other Aussie Angels had a virtual styling class with the wonderful stylist Eugene with the opportunity to ask questions as the session progressed. I was unsure how well this would work but I actually really enjoyed it and it was good to see how the hairstyle could be adapted to suit different hair types. The style I was attempting to follow was a textured side plait and I took pictures as the class progressed . Please excuse blurry pictures/gormless expressions... 

MAJOR hair envy. Picture c/o Aussie. 

Au naturel hair after a day at work...


I decided to brush out my curls (a very rare occurrence!) in order to make my hair a bit easier to work with.


Newly smooth waves!


Aussie curl defining and shine mousse. I have always been a bit wary of using mousse, memories of crispy haired girls at school always put me off but this smells amazing (like all Aussie products) and actually sank into my hair nicely...

WHAT.A.GORM.
The amount I used for my hair. 

Softly defined curls...


A quick spritz with the Hi-Hold, Hi-Shine hairspray to keep the curls in place... I HATE the smell of hairspray so the smell of this (kind of fruity?)  is a welcome change from the usual synthertic smell and it manages to tame my unruly mane...win win!


Sweep your curls over to one side...


Plait your hair into a chunky side braid...


Secure with a bobby pin...


Despair at the amount of hair that has fallen out on the one side...


There was plenty of texture in this bad boy!


Twist it up and pin it underneath for an interesting textured bun. 


TA-DA!

I loved the idea of the styling session and I found it very easy to follow even if the finished product didn't look half as good. Thank you Aussie for another fab event for us Angels to try!

Would you wear a chunky braid? How do you style your hair?
