The Perfect No Fuss Date Night Hairstyle


I don’t know about you, but I’m all for no fuss, readily messed hairstyles when it comes to special occasions. I love enjoying the moment and not needing to think about whether my hair’s running wild. With Valentines Day (and New York Fashion Week) just around the corner, I’ve been perfecting my go to look to make them the most effortless with the most hold possible. Think “I just woke up like this… but all day long. I think I’ve pretty much got the routine down now. Just in time considering I leave for New York with TRESemmé in less than 48 hours (HOW EXCITING!!!) and I’ve complied my favourite no fuss, minimal maintenance hair styles in to one tutorial for you…

This look is all about looking effortless, with minimal product involvement. It’s textured, messy and a little rough around the edges which makes the time old cliché of bouncy curls a little more modern. It sits somewhere between effortless french girl hair and California babe waves. Don’t ask me exactly where, as I haven’t quite decided, but it’s somemwhere on the scale…

Prep tip: 

For extra hold to your hairstyle use the TRESemmé Volume & Life Mousse after washing your hair (pre blow dry) to give your curls the extra hold they need. The Volume & Life Mousse Adds long-lasting fullness and weightless feeling to your hair without leaving it too crisp or sticky



Pin It: Pin two thirds of your hair over the top of your head.

Protect: Project your hair! Today I’m using the TRESemmé Heat Defence Styling Spray which protects your hair from damage caused by heat styling. It also leaves your hair feeling soft, with a sheen that would have you believe I don’t use heat on it daily. Repeat with each section.

Curl: Curl from the root of your hair, leaving a section loose at the end. This will leave your finished wave looking a little more undone. Curl different sized sections of hair to give the waves a more natural look. Repeat with each section.

Fix: I set my curls with TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray. This gives maximum hold with a fast drying finish, leaving hair feeling naturally soft – perfect for keeping your easy, effortless waves in place!

& Repeat: Repeat previous steps with each section and back comb the roots and mid lengths of the final section of hair a little to give more body and shape. Spray the finished look with TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray


Et voila!


Easy, long lasting, “I woke up like this” waves. Like I said, I’ll be rocking these for the next week over Valentines Day (and the foreseeable future) and Fashion Week too! Don’t forget to follow me on social media for all the backstage access where I’ll be snapping away (plus a few shows too!) and showing you more from the TRESemmé #WorkIt campaign, where they aim to inspire and empower you to wear the looks you love with confidence!
