Afsted igen, så er det i aften jeg flyver afsted mod Paris endnu engang med verdens bedste Laura. Vi skal flyve med lækre Airfrance, det glæder jeg mig ALTID til – selvom det er en kort tur må det gerne være en dejlig tur. Vi besluttede os for at tage slutningen af Paris modeugen denne gang i stedet for hele perioden. Det skal ikke være nogen hemmelighed at det godt kan være en anelse udmattende at være til modeuge og den sidste slæber jeg mig ofte lidt afsted til. Så det har været dejligt lige at have nogle dage her hjemme inden jeg skal afsted igen. Vi ses i Paris (Anastasia pun intended)!

english: Off we go again. I am flying to Paris tonight with the worlds best Laura. We are flying with beloved Airfrance, something I always look forward to! Eventhough it’s a short ride, there is nothing wrong with it being a nice ride! We decided to cover the end of Paris Fashionweek this time instead of the whole period. It should be no secret that it can be exhausting to be at fashionweek, especially the last one, I almost drag myself to the airport. It has been lovely to spend a few days at home before being on the go again. Will be seeing you in Paris (Anastasia pun intended)!

Jeg troede altid at man kun kunne få føntørret hår med en rundbørste hos frisøren. “Der er da ingen som kan gøre det der hjemme” tænkte jeg. Men så prøvede jeg det. Nøglen til at gøre det der hjemme er ikke at gå i panik halvvejs. Det kan godt virke som en uoverskuelig process. Men fat mod! Bouncy, silke agtige lokker er lige om hjørnet hvis du bare tør springe ud i det. Efter jeg startede med at lave den her type hårstyling for ca et halvt år siden har mange spurgt mig om jeg har været ved frisøren. Men nej, det kan snildt gøres hjemmefra! Bare følg de forskellige steps nedenfor, de er skrevet på engelsk så alle kan være med.

english: I always thought that the round brush blowout was a salon thing. Nobody can do it at home was always my statement until I just went ahead and did it. The key is really just not to panic. Yes the brush will get tangled in your hair the first (and maybe the second time) you do it – but be brave! Great, silky, bouncy and beautiful hair is just around the corner. After I started doing this hairstyling about 6 months ago, people tend to ask me if I have just been at the salon. But nope, it’s all do able from your home office. Just follow the steps below, I hope you enjoy! 

Step 1

Always apply some sort of product before blowdrying (I mean ALWAYS). It’s important for the hair to have some sort of “help” when you apply heat. When I blow-dry my hair into a style I like to use a product that is specifically made to shape the hair during heat. Here I am applying the Moroccanoil Blow-dry Concentrate. Made specifically for frizzy unruly hair (like mine) making it easier to blowdry and brush through.

Step 2

I find it way easier to do my hair when I part it. It takes longer yes, but there is no time to be lazy with your hair. A great styling can last up to five days if you do it right the first time. Make it easy for yourself! I part my hair up to 8 times when I do this blow-dry routine and the end result always makes me happy I didn’t take the easy way out. If you don’t part your hair it will be less manageable.

Step 3

Ah yes, the most important step indeed. The blow-drying. First make sure to get yourself a killer brush. This is not where you want to save your money. You can have it for a very long time if you are good to it and it will make your job much easier. I use the 45mm Moroccanoil round brush made with wild boar hairs. It’s easy to use, it looks great and the ceramic center of the brush gives a 360˚ heat distribution. Genius. I always start from the roots and work my way down paying extra attention to the ends of my hair as I like that little swing at the end.

Step 4

Yes we are at that parting of the hair thing again. I always separate the dry hair from the wet hair. If you use a small plastic hair tie like this one it doesnt leave a mark your hair. Tying down your dry hair also makes it easier for you to keep on working on the wet areas.

Step 5

This step also applies if you dont have parted bangs like I do. Framing the face is key to this hairstyle. It’s what really gives that bouncy, beautiful shape to the hair. Part your front hair from the rest and brush it forward. Curl the brush up under it and onto your forehead. Don’t worry you won’t get a big curl in the middle of the face, not with this size brush. Apply heat from the root and out rolling the brush away from your face until you are satisfied.

Step 6

Let your hair loose and give it a break. Apply a styling cream with hydration if possible. The heat is tough on your hair, hand it a drink. I use the Hydrating Styling Cream from Moroccanoil starting at the roots of my hair and working my way down. I have a tendency to flyaways after a blow-dry but this cream really “calms” my hair down.

Step 7

Now this step is totally optional but I don’t think you can get enough volume so I like to tease the roots on top of my hair. Just to give that extra glam a shoutout. I use a fine teasing comb from Moroccanoil that also has a full head of wild boar hairs. Be aware though, this comb can really tease.

Step 8

For smoothing down flyaways and keeping the hair in check I use the Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray in strong. I am really not a hairspray girl I have to admit. I don’t like the stickiness, the smell or the final look of the hair. It’s always almost crunchy. But this hairspray leaves my hair smooth, soft and not on lock down. Finally!

Final look

Voila, the final look! Shake your head (and your booty) and let your hair have it’s own life. What I really love about this hairstyle is that even though it has a very “perfect” finished look, it just gets better and better during the day as it gets a little rough around the edges. I can have this hair for many days, it also looks great in a long silky ponytail. Remember to apply product during the days to smooth down or if you need a bit of a tease. I hope you liked this little step by step guide! Please find all products (with links) down below.

Milano er fuld af de fineste sporvogne, både nye som gamle. De nye er super sleek, køre hurtigt og er ikke særlig kønne i den ellers så smukke by. De gamle er helt helt gamle. Ægte gamle. Med brune træsæder, messing håndtag og meget lav hastighed. Mine yndlings er dem som er indrettet lidt retro som denne. Pastel farvede sæder, 60’er inspirerede vinduer og medium fart. Disse billeder er taget lige efter et besøg hos Gucci HQ som ligger ret langt væk fra indre Milano. Laura synes jeg passede så fint i mit lyseblå til alt det lysegule og kunne slet ikke lade være at fotografere. Det er så tilfredsstillende når en fotomulighed bare opstår af sig selv og billederne bliver fede i stedet for alt altid skal planlægges. Lige nu sidder jeg hjemme i min stue i København og er ved at planlægge Paris modeugen, det bliver så spændende men det er nu også rart at være hjemme.

english: Milan is filled with the cutest trams, both new and old. The new ones are sleek, drive fast and are not a very pretty addition to the beautiful city. The old ones are really old. I mean SUPER old. They have brown wooden seats, brass handles and they are slow. My favorite ones are the ones that are quite retro like this one. Pastel colored seating, 60’s style windows and medium speed. These photos were taken right after our visit at Gucci HQ which is located quite far from inner Milan. Laura just loved the light blue, pastel yellow combo and had to take some photos. Its such a satisfaction when you just bump into a photo opportunity like this, I don’t like to plan absolutely everything. Right now I am just here, in my living room in Copenhagen and about to plan Paris FW this friday. It’s gonna be so much fun but it’s also so nice to be home.

Et lækkert brand som Missoni har selvfølgelig også lækkert hår og lækker makeup. Jeg var så heldig at blive inviteret backstage af Moroccanoil for at fange dette kaos og se det blive til Missoni magi. Jeg tog Laura med mig så vi både kunne fotografere og filme samtidig (video coming right up!). Modellerne var søde, stemningen var afslappet næsten kontrolleret og rummet duftede af Moroccanoil’s ikoniske argan oil. Looket var rent og lod pigernes individuelle skønhed tale for sig selv. Håret var et klassisk, super skarpt, glansfuldt, venstre til højre sideskildnings look som fik alle modellerne til at se sunde og stilede ud. Den glans de havde var for vild. Hårstylisterne tog kedeligt (over ophedet) model hår og gjorde det til lange, silkeagtige lokker kun ved brug af et par produkter og en hårtørre. Jeg anede ikke at man kunne tørre allerede tørt hår? Who knew?! Kollektionen var så smuk. Farverig, legesyg og rigtig Missoni agtig. Det var en sand fornøjelse at være en del af denne oplevelse.

english: A yummy brand like Missoni of course also has yummy hair and yummy makeup. I was so lucky to be invited backstage by Moroccanoil to capture this controlled chaos turning into Missoni magic. I brought Laura with me so that we could both take pictures and film (video coming right up!). The models were sweet, the vibe was calm and the whole room smelled like Moroccanoil’s iconic argan oil. The look was clean, letting the girls’ individual beauty speak for it self. The hair was a classic sharp cut, super sleek, left to right parted look making the models look healthy and chic. The shine was incredible, I was mesmerized as the hairstylists transformed dull (over worked) model hair into sleek, long, shiny locks using only a few products and a good hairdryer. Who knew you can actually blow-dry already dry hair? The collection was absolutely beautiful. Colorful, playful and true Missoni. It was such a pleasure to be apart of this experience.

OH det følelses nærmest som forår i Milano! Temperaturen er helt perfekt – det er strik vejr. Med det her outfit vil jeg gerne demonstrere hvordan jeg bruger både min vinter garderobe og min sommer garderobe. Smelter den sammen om man vil. Min yndlings strik, tilsat de jeans jeg “tilfældigvis” bare hopper i hele tiden og en af mine yndlings sommer kjoler. Det er selvfølgelig alt for koldt til kun at bruge kjolen lige nu men jeg vil SÅ gerne alligevel – så må jeg jo få den til at fungere til denne tid på året. Hvordan gør man det? Jo man sætter det hele sammen! Why not? Det eneste jeg har gjort er at fjerne underkjolen (som jo egentlig er rimelig essentiel når man bruger kjolen alene) men til det her look kan jeg meget godt lide den er helt gennemsigtig. Det giver noget uskyldigt og smukt til et ellers ret uskyldigt look.

english: Ahh it feels like spring in Milan these days, the temperature is just perfect – pure sweater weather. With this outfit I wanted to show how I style my winter and summer items for spring. Just melting it together. My favorite knit pared with the jeans I just happen to hop in everytime I go somewhere and then a summer dress. It’s obviously too cold to only wear the dress yet BUT I still want to pull it out of the closet from time to time. This is how I get the most use of my summer and winter items all year round. I put it all together in one outfit. All I did was remove the chemise that comes with the dress (which is of course is quite essential when only wearing the dress) and threw it together with the rest of the look. I love the sheer effect it brings to the look.
