Shave or Style Beach to Bar Thumbnail

Holiday hair is all about easy-going, easy-t0-do effortless style so taking it straight from beach bar with minimal effort is the order of the day.  Hardly any styling, a couple of well placed pins and  a few braids scattered in for good measure are all it needs to go stylishly from your day beach look straight through to the evening.

This follow-up video to How to Get Perfect Beachy Waves (which you can see here) is a quick and easy how-to for a little half updo with all these elements that will have you reaching for the kirby grips in a second.

As with the previous video, this styling tutorial is here to raise awareness of Macmillan Cancer, the incredibly important work they do and to help raise funds to help them continue to help anyone and everyone who hears those devastating words when the diagnosis is made. So it’s time for us to get involved and show our support. The week of 19th – 25th July is officially Shave or Style week. If you’re brave enough, shave your head, but first, sign up to to set up your fund-raising page, get sponsored and get shaving!

If, like me, shaving’s not your thing, try a new style. I spent a morning with the very lovely Imran at the fabulous michaeljohn salon in Knightsbridge to try a new style, (learning how to do it myself), so I thought I’d make a couple of videos for you guys.

Copy my attempt either at this evening look or the daytime beachy look, (which you can see in this video here), or do something completely different, and post a selfie on your social media channels. Mention @shaveorstyle, and make sure to donate £3 to MACMILLAN CANCER by texting STYLE to 70550 to help this utterly necessary charity to continue the indispensable work they do. Don’t forget to tag your friends to do the same! If you want to see my Shave or Style selfie, it’s here on my Instagram page and here on my Facebook page.

Stay tuned and subscribe to my channel here, and make sure to check out the daytime easy relaxed look as well as this easy evening look – both looks are perfect for that laid-back summer holiday feel.

Oh, and don’t forget to tag me in your pics – I’d love to see your styles; I’m always looking for hairstyle inspiration!
