Hairspiration: Solange Knowles & Paloma Faith
I take inspiration from some very stylish ladies to deal with my hair when I do wear a different hairstyle, and these are two of my favourites.
I love headscarves, especially when I'm having a bad hair day! They are great on day 4 or when I need to dye my roots because they hide a multitude of sins & add a bit of flair & personality to your hairstyle. Solange Knowles is definitely my main source of head scarf inspiration, & I like the turban styles she wears, and all the colourful prints. Rihanna also loves a good headscard & has definitely helped make them more popular than ever before.To get your headscarf into a half-turban style knot just use a long scarf & twist the two ends around each other & tie behind, or try tying a knot into the middle of a smaller scarf & tying behind for a different take on it.
When my hair is maybe on day two or three I sling it into a low side pony & do a pinwheel fringe. This way I still get to wear it long but it's more tame & my fringe is kept off my face. This is one of my favourite ways to wear my fringe because I like it to help frame my face but it can be sort of annoying when it's not pinned back! Paloma Faith is the QUEEN of fringes, and of hair in general, her hairstyles are always a great source of inspiration, and Dita is of course the most glamourous woman on earth so you can't go wrong with anything she does.
