Seven Days, Seven Hairstyles & One Big Giveaway

Head & Shoulders

*Sponsored Content in partnership with Head & Shoulders

Screw the whole ‘days of the week’ embroidered knickers you wore back in school; seven hairstyles that you can whip out for each day is what you want. Now here is where Head & Shoulders come to the rescue. For the first time since it launched 50 years ago, they’ve released a product for helping to create thicker looking hair – see it isn’t just for dandruff. Designed to dose up your locks with their ‘Triple Active Complex’ – a formula that gives both short-term oomph and long-term hair thickening benefits – the extra hit of volume allows for even more options in your hairstyle repertoire. Together with Peter Lux (professional stylist, full-time babe – can he come and do my hair everyday?), Head & Shoulders have created a collection of 7 looks so that everyday is a good hair day and being a bit of a styling noob I was more than happy to play hair model for Peter to guide me through his creations…

For Monday he suggests the ‘Classic Blow-Dry‘ – giving bounce, a good style foundation for the next few days and a fresh start to the week. Then there’s the ‘Fishtail Plait‘, a side-swept style that’s surprisingly easy to do despite its complicated appearance, for Tuesday. A bit of date night glamour is added for Wednesday with an ‘Elongated Waves‘ look, which was created by a bit of tonging and then adding texture – like a polished surfer gal vibe. For Thursday’s style Peter pinned up my lengths into a ‘Beehive Bun‘, which I loved. He made two buns at the back and gave height at my crown giving it a modern twist.

Things got a little bit higher for Friday’s look which was a ‘Braided Topknot‘. Peter gathered my hair on top of my head before securing it into a plait and wrapping it back round on itself to create a bun, pulling the sections apart slightly to beef it out. For Saturday we went for the ‘Glossy Waves‘ curled, but brushed out look which may just be my favourite of them all (big centre picture). Then finally a brunch-appropriate ‘Volumised Pony‘ was called in for our Sunday look, using the wavy base and adding a bit more lift at the roots.

If you’d like to win the chance to have Peter Lux create your favourite style for you then head over to the Hang Up Your Hang Ups hub to enter and for expert tips and advice on creating the looks yourself. And if you win you must get him to snap a picture of your new do too – he’s quite the photographer. Say hello to your new FaceBook profile photo… 


  • Lovely pineapple Anna 🙂

  • Tarryn B

    Loving your hair!

  • Wow!!! <3

  • You look lovely as always, Anna! 🙂 The Beehive Bun and the Volumised Pony were my go-to dos back when my hair was long. Now that I’ve chopped 30cm off, I’m left with a bob with very limited updo styles. Sob.

  • Lux Veritatis

    ahh, loving all of these !
    I’m new to this world of blogging, so it would mean a world to me if anyone checked out my blog and followed? Thanks:)

  • Your hair looks gorgeous 🙂 I would love to have hair like yours.
    Not tried many head and shoulder products as I prefer much more prettier and vibrant packagings by other brands. want to try out this shampoo now as I need a bit of volume in my hair most of the time.

    Thank you for posting, I hope you have a lovely day! ♥

  • Rachel Merkle

    Beautiful!! Weirdly enough, that thickening spray is marketed toward men in the US but is the exact same as what you have in the UK… it doesn’t even have a smell that would make it “for men,” but it’s in the men’s section here at Target. Very odd. But it’s AMAZING. I love it, and I love you. Stunning hair looks, as always! xoxo

  • le bowman


    The middle picture is my favorite- its so classic and beautiful! Very creative and wearable styles as well! I need to start doing more with my own hair now that you’ve inspired me!! Have a great day!!

  • Adaleta Avdic

    I went through all the hoops and signed up, but then I realized you must be in the UK or Ireland to register/create an account. Bummer! However, I do really love all of the hairstyles on you. You look quite lovely!

  • I LOVE the fishtail plait, beehive bun and braided topknot soo much. This is why I need to grow my hair longer, and not cut it the moment it gets a tiny bit too long! x

  • Wow! Your hair looks absolutely amazing!

  • Your hair looks beautiful! Those hairstyles look amazing on you, Anna! I love the Braided Topknot, it’s like fancier pinapple bun!

  • Anna

    Ah all the styles look amazing! your hair looks so luscious and shiny!

  • Do you have any suggestions/tips on putting hair up in a high bun? I’ve been trying to do it for years (when I had long hair) but haven’t been able to. My hair is always too slippery!

    • Madison Moore

      Try adding dry shampoo to your strands, as it gives the hair my grip, or a texturising spray. Otherwise you can use hair that hasn’t been washed in awhile, as it isn’t as slippery.

  • Allison

    that middle bombshell picture though! So gorgeous and that new background is beautiful love me a bit of exposed brick

    Your hair will always look great if it gets the proper nutrition. It is important
    that hair nutrition is done from inside out. What you eat is vital to support
    healthy hair and healthy body. In order to make sure I am providing all the
    necessary vitamins for my hair I am taking special nutritional supplement,
    which contains the unique combination of herbs and microelements. This
    supplement is HairGain Formula (90 capsules) by Military Grade. This product is
    the only nutraceutical which possesses prostaglandin D2 blocking properties.
    Awesome nutritional product which defends my hair from falling out and enhances
    healthy hair growth.
