Today’s Tip: Do your hair

I’ve recently discovered an amazing piece of advice. If your hair is clean and well done you look pulled-together, no matter what you’re wearing.

Do you ever stare at everything in your closet and think you have nothing to wear? I do! My new strategy is this: when I think I have nothing to wear, I have discovered I can combat this feeling by washing my hair and giving it a really good blow-dry before I get dressed. Once I have done that I feel like I look amazing, so it doesn’t matter if I’ve owned that piece of clothing for years – it suddenly looks great!

One of my favourite outfits to wear at the moment is a white t-shirt with jeans and a black blazer. I especially love this outfit when my hair looks good because it pulls together the whole look. I like to call it my MOD (Model Off Duty) look.
Note: As opposed toMod to mean Modernist, the subculture from London in the 50′s & 60′s.

I have to admit, I stole this look from Victoria Beckham, Miranda Kerr, Elle MacPherson and other models who wear it around town.

Next week I’ll put up instructions on how to best wash your hair in order to have the best starting point for your look.

    Fab advice! Blow dried hair always looks “done”. And what’s not to love about the classic jeans, white shirt, black blazer?? That look NEVER goes out of style. I remember 20 years ago reading an interview with Elle Macpherson in Dolly magazine where she described this as her staple outfit for travel.

      It’s the best outfit in the world.

      A good blow dry covers a multitude of sins.

    That’s so cool that she has plastic hair! It’s even better that it’s
    cool for the breeze and lasts for months! If I had really thick hair
    then I would really get that hair style, that way I wouldn’t have to
    bother with thick short hair if I had it. My hair is thick but not
    really like hard thick and it’s long so I wouldn’t really have to wear
    that plastic hair unless I had really short thick hair. I would prefer
    that people with thick short hair should read this article though:).
    Thanks for posting this article:D.
