Creating Waves With BaByliss Video

It’s been a bit ‘hairy’ round here these past few days – first an updated haircare routine, and now a hair tutorial – I’m on a bit of a roll! A few of you asked what tool I had used to create my wavy locks in my ‘Haircare Routine #3 Video’ so here is a little tutorial on what I used…

So if you watched this video till the end (or have had a sneaky peek at this before even watching the video!), then yes I am doing a giveaway! I have never done one before as I always felt awful that only one person ever wins, but it’s Christmas and all that so I thought it was time to give something back 😉 Here are the boring rules:

– The giveaway is open on my Blog and Youtube Channel
– Open to UK residents only
– Please leave one comment underneath either this video or my blog post about this (or on both) stating your wavy hair icon to be entered
– You must be over 16 to enter
– Giveaway closes at Midnight (GMT) on the 26th December, and a winner will be randomly selected
Good luck everyone! 
Much Love,
Vivianna x

    My hair icon is a bit odd. Rita Hayworth, shes this old actress with perfect curls.

    Great giveaway. Your hair looks great.

  • nataliecleggings

    My wavy icon has got to be Fearne Cotton; maybe not the most obvious choice but she’s recently been rocking the most gorgeous wavy bob!  Real old-style Hollywood glamour, plus I also have shorter hair!

    Thanks for the give away too, happy Christmas!

    Great giveaway 🙂 My wavy hair icon would have to be Sienna Miller. She somehow creates that effortless boho chic look that is well, iconic :p She seems to be able to transform her waves easily to more of a retro 1950’s style for evening looks as well that is incredibly glamourous.
