Gemma Arterton | Hansel & Gretel | Hair Inspiration

I went to see ‘Hansel & Gretel:  Witch Hunters’ at the cinema the other day and loved Gemma Arterton’s hair in it. It was a twisted, messy and out of the way style .
('cause she lives an active lifestyle, killing witches and all)
The film was pretty good too, even though I read some bad reviews, I really liked it. It was kind of like the first 'Underworld' film, but with witches not vamps and wolves. Oh, and the witches in it are really creepy too, but so much so that they're amazing! I particularly liked the crazy, conjoined twins. Genius.
It's just all round awesome :] go check it out if you like that kind of thing. I saw it in 3D and I think it was one of the best 3D films I’ve seen, as it didn’t disappear half way through!
But back to the hair.
It changed a little throughout the film, from braids, to curls from what I can remember. There doesn’t seem to be that many pictures floating about of her hair either. Anyway, I took inspiration from it and created a tutorial! I decided to do it on straight hair, because it obviously works on hair with a bit of texture, and it turned out great – it stayed in all day with a touch of hairspray.
Let me know what you think :]

So that bungee hair tie post... | DIY Hair bungee

So, forget that post about the bungee bobbles! You can make them yourself, you just need 2 bobby pins/hair clips and a bobble of your choice.
1. Take bobby pins and loop onto bobble
2. Your done
Yep, that simple, cheap and easy. I almost feel foolish for parting with money for the bungees. Never mind, such is life. The best thing about the DIY is you can choose different bobble thickness for your hair type, customisation is always a winner!
Gem :]

Macadamia Hair Oil | Review

Macadamia Natural Oil for the hair? It's bloody awesome. Go try it.
The End.
That’s the top and bottom of it, but I guess you probably want to know why, so I shall expand on the magicalness below...

*Warning! May cause hair flipping and flicking('cause your worth it)*
So, I have long, thick, coloured hair, that’s definitely prone to a curl and wave on a regular basis, or a blast from the hair dryer, and tumble with a hairbrush. Sorry Hair. In other words, it gets a tad abused, but Macadamia oil sorts it all out for me, so my hair looks pretty and doesn’t fall out with me/off my head.
- It can be used on all hair types, on wet or dry hair and as a deep treatment or everyday control and shine booster
- When you pop it on damp hair, the oil pushes out the water because, obviously, water and oil don’t get along. So this makes your hair dry quicker, and if you leave it to dry naturally it’s also healthier
- On dry hair it not only tames the frizz and hides split ends, but it also gives your hair a natural shine
- You only need about a 10p size, at the very most, so it lasts a very long time. I’m only just at the end of my 30ml bottle that I’ve had since around October, which I’ve used it at least 3 times a week, so it’s great value for money
- Application is easy peasy. Pour out onto your hand, and always rub into palms before smoothing it evenly over the lengths of your hair. Never near your scalp because shiny roots aren’t a good look
- Also, it smells good. I would say it’s a nutty masculine smell, but not overpowering or that noticeable when its on your hair
I got my little pot of joy here, but you can get it on Amazon too and no doubt a tonne of other sites.
I’ve tired argan oil, which I found wasn’t anywhere near as good, but I’ve not had a chance to get my hands on the Moroccan oil. I’ve read/heard that the latter has a strong scent and is much heavier? Any thoughts?
Gem :]

P.S I'm all well and mended now - Yay! x
