My Friend Is An Actual Mermaid (Long Crimped Hair Details)

Just a quick one before tomorrow's post about The Vamps concert, I want to do something a little different because hair posts aren't all too common on my blog. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty jealous of Leanne's long locks. That's why I ended up messing on with her hair on the way home from our trip to London... 

We had been talking about the 80's themed party she went to when she was younger because I took out the braids for it during PE... It was one of our reasons to skive. We took out the braids to reveal a frizzly bushy style but things turned out differently this time. Of course, the circumstances were different. 

Last time she slept in wet braids, this time I did them at about 1am on the train with some Frozen hair detangler and no brush. I tried to get the braids as even as possible but because her hair is slightly layered so they got gradually thinner. 

The detangler was from Poundland and the spray wasn't really a spray, it was more like a squirt so I had to put some on my hands and run it through each individual braid. It turned out to be quite a lengthy process to be honest. Though, it did make her hair look glossier and it made braiding it without a brush a little bit easier too.

Last time it was more Hermione Granger, this time I think it was more of a Coachella sort of festival look. I will say though, this wouldn't have worked on shorter hair, the length and weight of Leanne's hair stopped the crimped locks from looking more like an afro. 

If I was to do this to my hair it wouldn't have a festival vibe, it would be a bit more... "I'm going through an awkward phase" because it would just stick out. Then again, my hair is still at a weird stage anyway because of last years pixie crop that I'm still growing out. 

Anyway, that's it for today's post! I'll get straight onto writing the post about The Vamps concert that I went to last week. Until next time, bye!
