Summer Beauty With Leonie Barlow - Hair

HAIR & ACCESSORISING THIS SUMMER

Hair this summer is all about loose natural waves. The great news is they are super-easy to achieve with the right tools. My all-time fav tool for curling is the Cloud Nine Micro Wand. It’s going to set you back a cool $250 but it’s money well spent. This wand is easy to use and has two temperature settings to cater for different hair types. The Cloud Nine is the wand the professionals swear by and once you get hold of this bad boy you’ll know why it’s a firm favourite.

There’s nothing lazy about scraping your hair up into a pony this season but make sure you finish it with a cool hair tie.
