Angel Montague Sayers, Brand Ambassador for EIDEAL recommends…
KIM KARADASHIAN- SLEEK PONYTAIL
Ever struggled to achieve the celebrity favorite; sleek high ponytail? Well now is your chance to nail the trend that swishes down every red carpet.
The secret weapon to this look is using a specialist hair band with hooks on either end to avoid any bumps and enjoy maximum holding power. EIDEAL has just launched its ‘TIE ME’ bands which do just that. You’ll get 6 clear and 6 black in a pack and trust me your ponytails will be transformed.
To recreate this look; start by ironing your hair poker straight using high shine irons. I always recommend the EIDEAL Geenie irons, because of their smart technology and Germanium coated plates, which give the hair unparalleled shine in an instant.
Once straight; apply some of the DAVINES More Inside shine wax to the hairline and using a soft bristle brush (I’m obsessed with the Bamboo soft bristle brush by EIDEAL) gather the hair into a high ponytail around the crown area. For extra hold; spray some strong hold hairspray directly onto your bristle brush, which will make sure you get an even distribution of product.
When you are happy with the position and smoothness; hook the first ‘TIE ME’ hook around the base of the ponytail. With lots of tension, wind the elastic around the base and hook the other hook in.
To finish; take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap around the elastic to hide, secure this using pins or grips.
BELLA HADID- FAUX BOB
Is your hair already cut into a shoulder skimming bob? Perfect. To recreate Bella Hadid’s enviable bob ready for EID, all you’ll need to do is invest in a good blow-dry brush (The EIDEAL Natural Wooden brush is always my go-to because it has soft bristles and a ceramic core; ideal for volume and smoothness).
Apply a balm to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair (The DAVINES More Inside Pliable paste gives guts and maximum hold to soft, untamable hair) and blow-dry in; encouraging volume at the roots by directing the air flow of the hairdryer underneath the roots.
Tame any flyaway hairs using the DAVINES Oil non Oil or some shine spray.
Faking it is also an option for those who aren’t ready to chop off their tresses but still want to achieve this look.
Replicate the blow-dry as above and tie the mid-lengths and ends together using a small elastic. Simply roll up the ponytail to the nape of the neck and fix using grips and pins.
Adjust the shape where necessary and finish using shine spray.
LILY COLLINS – EIGHTIES CURLS
Lily Collins is famous for her sleek shiny hair. So it was a welcome surprise this year at the Cannes Film Festival when she totally transformed her look. If you’re looking to have the WOW factor this EID, then this instant transformation would be good to replicate.
All you need is a small curling tong or wand. I like to use the EIDEAL Curlie wand because it’s easy to wrap around and gives the perfect shape.
I also recommend prepping the hair before you begin using a lightweight mousse. My preference for this look is the DAVINES More Inside Volume Mousse Booster, which plumps the hair out and creates a great base for styling.
Take small sections and wrap around the curling wand then leave to curl.
Shake out the shape then tease using a comb or bristle brush for serious 80s vibes.
