On occasions when I do photoshoots or weddings I'm asked to do hair as well as makeup so I have a good hair kit that keeps on growing like a monster.
Hair extensions, hair pieces, fake buns, rats (fillers), clips, brushes, styling products and lots of other accessories are all part of my kit.
However, I wanted to share with you just a few tools that people tend to overlook when doing hair or they don't even know they exist!
Let's start with the list of My Secret Hair Styling Tools.
1-Inexpensive backcombing brush
This brush is such a staple in my kit. I always use it. It's my best friend for when I need to create a tiny bit of volumen but the hair needs to look natural and informal. A few back combs from the back and boom! There you have your textured hair. No fussing with products- this comb will do the job! This brush will normally be around £2.
2-Rat Tail Comb
Every person who is serious about hair will have one of these! It's so useful. I use it to tidy up hair dos, to get all the fine hairs on a pony tail, to do neat end combing and lots more. The end also helps me to manipulate the hair a bit more when the style is done. You can puff a beehive a bit more by sticking the end and using your hand to move hair around.
Yes, a toothbrush! This is your best friend to tame all the flyaways or baby hairs around the forehead. I tend to apply the spray on the brush and not on the hair. Magic!
These are really old school and people forget about them but I love them. I use them to get the hair look around pony tails and get that super pro look. You can also use them to create a romantic looks and other wacky side dos.
5-Clear Hair Bands
These are a must for photoshoots! They look neat and are very easy to disguise.
6-Tan Hair Bands
I love to use these on brunettes, blonds and ref haired girls. It's just that extra touch that makes the look so professional.
These are not any hair pin. It's the ones you can hide so easily! They look like a hook and the technique is to apply them and then push the opposite side. Hope that makes sense. These come in different colours and are a must for everyone doing hair.
Hope this was helpful!
