I love bows

I love bows

At the moment i find bows really sweet in hair. Try wearing them in different ways, don't tell any one but i recently bought a navy blue velvet scrunchie with a bow on!(90's revival)

I found the perfect shop on etsy...

Heres a few ideas on how to wear your new bows...

 I love the way they can be used in a super cute way but also really stylishly. You dont need to be a really girlie girl to pull this one off.

Hair Envy 23rd January 2014

Hair Envy 23nd January 2014

Personally i think there is nothing sexier than the loose undone look. I love tousled, ruffled up hair and think this deserves the Hair Envy tittle this week.

Hollywood Pixies

Hollywood Pixies

From the advice of Jennifer Lopez Kristen Chenoweth has chopped her hair off into the latest Hollywood trend.... the pixie cut.

Other stars that have also joined the clan are Pamela Anderson (yes that really is her)and Jennifer Lawrence.


What do you think about the Hollywood Pixie, does it make a refreshing change to the long packed full of extension look we normally associate with Hollywood hair?

Hair Envy 9th January 2014

Hair Envy 15th January 2014

This picture gets me in the mood for spring, with its golden filter giving it a summery feel.

Every girl loves the idea of flowers in their hair, and i really like the loose waves and contrast between these two colours.

Jennifer Lawrence

Long or short?!

Jennifer Lawrence is definitely a Hollywood hottie at the mo but which do you prefer, the long or short hair?


 It's such a hard desision to make, she is so beautiful!

I think i'd have to vote short. 

 January is a great time to go for something new.... GO FOR IT!

We love short hair!!

Hair Envy

Hair Envy

To start the new year i'm going to start a new post, Hair Envy!

Each week ill post a picture of hair that makes me smile and feel envy. 

To kick this off i'm going to start with a pretty little pony.
Over the party season there will have been a lot of heat styling so i'm game for any style that looks pretty and is heat free at this time of year!

Let me know what you think and if you have any Hair Envy, send it over to

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everybody, hope you all enjoyed the big celebrations and the hangovers were small.So.... me and many others will have made new years resolutions, hitting the gym, going running, dry january and quitting smoking. Its going to be a tough start to the year but i feel January is a good marker.

A much easier way of creating a new image and getting that feel good factor is changing your hair.

 Have you been considering a change but have just not quite been brave enough.Well now is the time to go for it.
    New Year New You.

January can be a great time for a change, maybe its changing something little like your parting or a huge change, like a new hairdresser. If you feel that your hair dresser isn't paying you enough attention or giving you suggestions maybe you need a fresh pair of eyes to come up with new styles and that perfect new image.

Here at Westwood, a big image over haul is my favourite thing to do, theres nothing more satisfying than a big smile once its done. So be brave, visit your hairdresser and see what they can come up with. Heres a few of my favourite styles for January....

After the party season, we are all feeling a little frazzled and i think it really shows in our hair and skin. From this i really crave glossy simple styles, soft blondes and caramels which really reflect light.

Start using treatments to give your hair that little bit of TLC it needs.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and all the support you have shown. Wishing you all the best for 2014.
