The Lob – long bob – is the hair style of the moment. All the celebrities are opting for the chop, or ditching their extensions, in favour of this ultra chic, versatile style. I have a Lob by default; i’m growing out a crop and after 6 agonising months it’s finally reached chin length, but as I’ve discovered it’s not the most low maintenance of styles.
Whilst I could get away with lazily blasting my pixie crop with a hairdryer and using my fingers to give it volume and texture the Lob is much more demanding. My hair has an annoying tendency to flick out at the ends, especially if I let it dry naturally, so unless I’m going for the Miss Hoolie look (if you’re not a parent or regular viewer of CBeebies you’ll have to Google her) I have to carefully blow dry it using the right brushes.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company Round Blow Dry Brush (RRP £13.50)* is a definite must for sleek, well behaved hair and has saved me from many potential bad-hair days. Using this brush to finish off your blow dry will result in smooth, frizz-free hair that is full of long lasting volume and shape. I’m not the most accomplished person when it comes to styling my hair but even I manage to get a finish that comes as close as I’ll ever get to a salon blow-dry!
The brush has a soft touch handle and is fairly lightweight, which makes blow drying your hair really easy and comfortable. On the back of the beautiful floral print box are some top tips to ensure you achieve the perfect blow dry. The mix of baby blue and cream give a vintage feel to this professional styling brush and it looks great adorning your dressing table top. Once again The Vintage Cosmetic Company proves you don’t need to compromise on looks to get professional quality beauty tools.
