Some people just seem born with perfect hair, but those people are few and far between (and are probably a product of Mattel!). For the rest of us, good hair days and bad hair days are just part of life — but it’s totally possible to shift the balance in favor of those good hair days, even if it’s just a wee bit unfair! Mwahahaha!
Aussie is running with the concept of “Unfair Hair” for their latest ad campaign and it’s super cute. Their premise: Aussie has such a large range of care and styling products that make getting great hair so quick and easy, it’s almost unfair. (And yes we have TEN prize packages to give away! Details below!) To get the point across, they’ve created some really funny, tongue-in-cheek videos like this one called “The Aussie Advantage: Sexy Beach Waves.” Check it out:
Totally funny, right? I love it.
But though the video is tongue-in-cheek, the reality that Aussie has such a great line of excellent and affordable haircare products is no joke. They make it really easy to turn a bad hair day into a great one! One of my favorite tricks — if I wake up with flat, blah hair but don’t want to wash it — is to lightly mist some Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner over it, run the blow dryer for 30 second or so, and then pile it up into a messy but pretty bun. Voila! Cute, easy hair in no time at all.
Aussie believes that getting great hair doesn’t have to take a lot of time, effort, or MONEY — and I totally agree. Aussie Celebrity Stylist Sarah Potempa shared these easy peasy but excellent tips for achieving great hair in just a few quick steps with us:
-To refresh hair that‘s been up in a bun or ponytail, lightly mist Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner and blow dry with a paddle brush to smooth any kinks.
-To create a quick and polished pony, spray Aussie Mega Hairspray directly onto a flat brush and smooth strands back for a sleek ponytail that stays put.
-For a quick and stylish braided bun, smooth hair back into a low ponytail with the Aussie Miraculously Smooth Tizz No Frizz Gel. Then, braid the low pony and secure with a clear hair tie. Wrap the braid into a bun and secure with a bobby pin.
-To get a boost of volume, spray hair with a bit of water to get it damp and apply Aussie Aussome Volume Spray Gel at the roots to lock in lift.
If you have time before bed:
-Spray Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner onto damp hair. Braid hair and go to sleep. Once it’s dry in the morning, gently separate the braids with your fingers for beautiful, loose waves.
-Apply Aussie Sprunch Mousse + Leave-in Conditioner to dry hair. Separate hair into three sections, twisting the hair away from the face into three loose buns. Secure with one long two inch bobby pins. Remove the pins in the morning and loosen the curls for a soft, easy style.
I’m a big fan of that last tip — do it all the time!
