Scrunchie Tutorial: Half Up Hair

Hi guys!

Wow, I know it has been a long while – a whole week from my last post! I hope you missed me as much as I missed you! I’ve been experiencing some technical difficulties last week so I haven’t been able to provide you with “guidance” on some of my latest trend and product discoveries, but I’m back now and have acquired several things that I would love to tell you about and one of them is my second scrunchie tutorial which, if you follow me on Twitter / Facebook / Instagram, you would have seen me wear all of last week. In my last post I showed you how to wear the scrunchie in a messy bun, but if you prefer your hair down this is the perfect look for you.

I prefer to wear this style on the second day hair as I find when using products that give your hair texture it’s easier to style on day two. Just me? Ok, so I originally washed my hair with the VO5 Give Me Texture Shampoo* and Conditioner*, which I love the smell of, and the bottles last for absolute ages. Wash, condition, dry and straighten (or leave wavy if you prefer – the style works both ways!)

Before styling, I always brush my hair to ensure there are no knots as I find brushing knotted hair, which has got products in it possibly one of the most unpleasant experiences ever. I remember when my mum or grandma used to brush my long hair for school and they caught a knot it was like torture – so from now on I never let my hair get tangled if I can help it.

I then use the Give Me Texture Dry Texturising Spray* and spray in the middle of my hair, best done when you flip your hair back and forth (que the ridiculously annoying but catchy Willow Smith tune!) as the product catches on strands and gives it a really nice, structured yet messy effect.

Gather your hair and separate halfway up the head, I don’t really worry about the parting being inch to inch perfect, as long as it’s relatively the same then it works! Depending on what your hair is like, you might want to give it a quick brush through on the top just to get rid of some flyaway strands.

Grab your scrunchie* and secure the half pony quite high up on the head. You want the top of the scrunchie to be seen, so fluff it up!

The next step is to add a little more texture to the look so use my all time favourite Tousled Style Spray* and spritz on the ends and the middle of your hair. A little goes a long way with this product! Scrunch up the hair and tousle it about with your hands, this will give the look it’s final kick of texture.

Place any out of place strands where you want them to be and you’re done. Hairspray isn’t a necessity, as you would have secured most of the hair with the Style Spray. I love this style to wear when I’m having a lazy hair day as I think it covers up any imperfects such as frizzy hair or greasy roots (don’t lie to yourself, you know there are always days when we just can’t be bothered to topknots and dry shampoo come in hand!) and is best worn with a baggy vest top, denim shorts, Wayfarers and a funky backpack to channel the 90’s!



  1. I love this! It's so 90s ;) haha I'm definitely going to try rock a scrunchie now.


  2. I wish I had your hair *_* I know it sounds creepy, but your hair is so amazing ^_^
