Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well! Today was my first day back at University and i would be lying if i told you i wasn't stressed out already. We are having some induction about dissertations and we have to pitch ideas this week and i totally feel under pressure and i cannot wait until it is over and i can get started on my dissertation. The summer has been absolutely amazing but unfortunately all good things must come to an end at some point and it is back to reality - the next 8 months are going to be insane! On a more happier note, Wednesday is the #CosmoBlogAwards and i am literally full of emotions - i am so excited but so nervous at the same time. I am really looking forward to finally meeting some fellow bloggers on the night though!
Any whooo, enough of my rambles and back into the post. I was recently introduce to a hair brand called 'Leonor Greyl'. I always get excited when i hear about new brands as i do have a lot of hair and sometimes it needs some extra TLC and miracle esk products. I always love when there are extra added meaning behind and brand and their story so i will briefly fill you in on Leonor Greyls...
Leonor Greyl has some simple ingredients of success: the expertise of more than 45 years in hair care, products made from 100% natural ingredients, a passion for healthy glamorous hair, and, most importantly one family's passion for profession. In 1968, Esthetican Leonor Greyl, with future husband and amateur naturalist Jean-Marie Greyl, created the Leonor Greyl brand from a simple but sweet idea: healthy, natural products = healthy beautiful hair. At the time of creation 'natural' was not yet established, however, with humble beginnings in a single salon in Paris, their unique products; Magnolia Oil, Honey Shampoo, Wheat Germ Oil and Cream of Flowers; are today some of the most popular and sought after treatments by prestigious hairdressers and top models in Paris and all over the world. Leonor Greyl is a brand specialising in hair treatments using only high-quality, environmentally safe, natural ingredients; Honey, Bamboo, Sunflower and Chamomile - with also blends of delicate aromas and plant extracts - the products give hair brilliance, glamour and beauty...and health! Leonor Greyl was the first brand to incorporate essential vitamins like A and E in their shampoos. Their signature, vitamin-rich Wheat Germ Oil was the first oil developed that foames on contact with water to revitalise limp hair, tp purify the scalp and fight against environmental factors - it is gentle enough for everyday use.
Leonor Greyl is popular with hair stylists and celebrities alike, so much that it was recently used in a number of stunning red carpet looks, such as Jennifer Lawrence and Samantha Barks at the Baftas. I don't know about you but I will sometimes look at a celebrity hairstyle at an big event when they are walking down the red carpet and be like 'How Can I re-create that myself...easily?!' Don't worry girlies we have you covered, Leonor Greyl have put together a super easy guide on how to create some fabulous looks and i will be sharing one with you all today! Follow the below steps to create the beautiful 'Samantha Barks 2013 Cannes Film Festival Hairstyle'.
Products Used - E'clat Naturel, Lair Luminescence, Gel A La Keratine, Huile Secret De Beaute (Which has won a 2013 Cosmopolitan Beauty Award), Serum De Soie, Laque Souple.
Step 1) Apply Lait Luminescence to dry hair layering on Serum de Soie for an extra soft, nourished feel. Using a paddle brush, dry in the product into hair using a hairdryer with a nozzle attachment.
Step 2) Once product is fully absorbed, use a tooth brush and gently brush hair back sleek and smooth. Pull hair into a ponytail and fast with elastic. Smooth over Huile Secret de Beaute over the tail.
Step 3) To create the bun(chignon) split the ponytail in two and create a rope braid to wrap around the base to create the bun(chignon).
Step 4) Twist the ponytail, then pin into a bun. Finish the look using Laque Souple, lock down any fly-
away using Gel a la Keratine mixed with Ecat Naturel which can be applied using a tint brush for an accurate application.
