Hello babes! It’s not long ago I had this hair do on my instagram story and I got a lot of messages about if I could show how I do it. Honestly it’s my go to look when it’s my 3rd or 4th day of not washing my hair. I’m a big dry shampoo girl! It’s not very difficult to do just takes a few times to get it right, it does for me too! So here is my from bedhead to bunhead look. Enjoy!
After a night of rumbling around on your pillow your hair will need a bit of a pick me up. I love to use a really good dry shampoo and preferably with a little bit of scent added to it. This one from Björn Axén is one of my faves. It’s light and doesn’t leave the hair powdery or white. It smells like grape fruit and the product looks cute (yes it matters)! I spray up and under my bangs, around the crown of my head and right in the front. You can shop the product here and follow the steps below!
Next step is adding some curl product. Because we’re gonna be using a curling iron to hide our bedhead(ness) – a curling product is in order. I use the curl hold from GHD simply because it’s compatible with the curling wand we will be using later in this tutorial. I also love it because it works great in dry hair. Spray it along your lengths and drag it out with your finger tips. Shop the GHD curl hold spray here.
Get ready to curl! But don’t worry – only lightly. Remember this is our lazy day so only do it as you see fit. I like to use my wand to curl my hair backwards and away from my face. That makes it a lot easier to form the bun we will be making later. I am using the curl creative wand from GHD (it’s the effin best!) – shop it here.
The creation of the half bun. One of my favorite techniques to making a succesful messy bun is to divide the hair it into two. Using a small see through plastic band and twist the ponytail around the band. Fasten it with a bobby pin and voila!
Time to assemble your messy bun! Divide the bottom part of your hair (dont worry about it being perfect, as you can see – mine is not even close to!). When you feel ready, take one part and cross it over to the opposite site and fasten it around the bun already on top of your head. Do this with the other side as well and your bun is done! Finish of with curling your hair in the front (only if you find this necessary) and voila! Enjoy babes!

Oh hvor havde jeg set frem til dette længe! Jeg skulle faktisk have gjort det inden jul men længe leve dovenskaben. Jeg trængte desperat til at blive klippet. Mit pandehår var længere end min nabo’s bryster og egentlig så jeg lettere pjusket ud. Jeg får ret tit spørgsmål om mit hår, særligt på instagram så jeg tænkte jeg ville lave et lille post hvor jeg fortæller om hvor jeg bliver klippet, hvad der bliver gjort osv. Jeg bliver klippet af fantastiske Betty Christoffersen. Betty er medstifter af Saco Hair som ligger i Fiolstrædet og hun er den eneste jeg tør lade røre mit hår. I hvertfald med en saks i hånden (lidt hovedbunds nus siger jeg sjældent nej til). Udover pandehår klippede Betty spidser og gav mit meget trætte (over sol eksponeret LA hår) en gloss. En gloss er ikke noget farligt blot et ekstra plejende og beskyttende lag som giver håret lidt ekstra glans og glød. Man kan også vælge at komme lidt farve i hvis man vil prøve det – dog bliver både gloss og farve skyllet ud efter lidt tid. Jeg har krøller fra naturens side men disse på billedet er (desværre) lavet af Betty og blev vildt smukke! Jeg har sat et link ind øverst hvis nogen selv vil ind og blive klippet hos SACO så kan i booke tid igennem der. God fornøjelse!
english: Oh my had I been looking forward to this for a looong time! I should have done this before Christmas but CHEERS to laziness. I desperately needed a haircut. My bangs were longer than my neighbors breasts and to be honest I looked rather shagged (and not in a good way). I quite often get questions about my hair, especially on instagram so I thought I would do a little post explaining where I get it cut, what I get done and so on. My hair is cut by the amazing Betty Christoffersen. Betty is the co-founder of Saco hair located in Fiolstrædet in central Copenhagen. She is the only one I let touch my hair, with a scissor in her hand that is (I rarely pass on hair cuddles). Besides cutting my bangs, Betty also fixed my split ends and gave me a gloss. Betty recommended that we did a gloss because my overly sun exposed LA hair was very dull and needed a pick me up. A gloss is nothing permanent just a layer of care, shine and life to the hair. It’s also possible to add a little bit of color but it’s all washed out after a while. I have natural curls but these were made by Betty! Wish they were mine, I always love how she styles my hair. I have put in a link under the photo to SACO if you wanna check it out yourself. Enjoy!

Hairspray (shop here), Mousse (shop here), Dry shampoo (shop here)
Som i måske har set på min instastory i forbindelse med Københavns modeuge var jeg så heldig at være backstage sammen med Sebastian Professional under Designers Remix showet. Her var der fokus på moderne 80’er hår med lækker sideskildning og uperfekte spidser. Looket blev skabt med en blanding af forskellige typer krøller for et mere “permanentet” look som man ofte havde i 80’erne. Key produkterne i looket bestod af hairspray, en god bouncy mousse og massere af dry shampoo. Dry shampoo er blandt andet også det som giver de “tørre spidser” som er en stor del af looket. Jeg var så heldig at få lov til at stille Sebastian Professional’s global artist, Nina Larsen, et par spørgsmål om looket og hende selv – dem kan i læse nedenfor på engelsk. Så kan alle være med. Rigtig god fornøjelse.
english: As you may have noticed on my instastory, I was so lucky, that during Copenhagen Fashionweek, I got to be backstage at the Designers Remix show with Sebastian Professional. Here, the 80’s had arrived. Chic midtparts and imperfect ends were key to this modern 80’s take on a curly hairstyle. The hair had different types of curls to resemble the look of a perm from the 80’s. Key products to create this look included hairspray, a bouncy mousse and dry shampoo. The dry shampoo, especially, is what creates the dryness and illusion of the “split ends” which is a big part of the look. I was so lucky that I got to ask Sebastian Professionals global artist, Nina Larsen, some questions about the look and herself. Read below. Enjoy!
3 QUESTIONS TO NINA LARSEN, KEY ARTIST, SEBASTIAN PROF.
How do you, as the key stylist, come up with new looks all the time?
As key stylist it’s very important to keep track of the new tendencies. You are either lucky to be able to create and develop looks yourself or you are not. Creativity is a gift. For me to be creative, it’s important for me to have the space and time to reflect. I get this during my many travels where I take the time to reflect but also to gather new inspiration. It’s also important for me to be surrounded by creative minds and create together.
What is your best hair trick? A bun can be hard to style because we want it to look natural and organic. What’s important is the product you use during your blowdry. Add a bit of the Sebastian Texture Maker into damp hair and blow-dry with your head down to create that “fluff” in the hair. The Texture Maker creates a texture that makes the hair much easier to style. If you want a high bun, put your head between your legs and make a high ponytail. Use your hands. Then you twist the ponytail around it’s center. A good tip is to make it tighter than you want it at first, that way you know it’s secure. When the bun is finished you are ready to style it in the front and loosen it in the back. Finish your look with Sebastians Drynamic dryshampoo for that messy finish.
What are you personal favorite products from Sebastian Professional?
My favorites right now are Sebastian Dark Oil and Sharper Fierce. Dark Oil smells amazing and can be used before blow dry but also in dry hair to add some shine. Dark Oil gives a nice soft feel to the hair while it nurtures and add’s shine. The Sebastian Sharper Fierce is a hairspray with strong hold. I love that it’s so dry in it’s consistency yet the hair still feels light.
Hej alle! Så er jeg tilbage med endnu et tutorial – det virker til i er glade for dem så jeg har besluttet mig for at være bedre til at få dem lavet! I dag vil jeg vise jer hvordan jeg laver min go to “low messy bun”. Det bliver rigtig hurtigt en meget fingernem frisure når man har prøvet det et par gange. Jeg bruger denne frisure både mandag morgen og til fest. Jeg har lavet en step by step guide nedenfor. God fornøjelse!
english: Hey everybody! I am back with yet another tutorial – it seems that you guys like theses so I have decided to do more of them. Today I wanna show you how I do my go to low messy bun. It quickly becomes a very easy hairdo once you have done it a couple of times. I wear my hair like this on mondays and to parties. It’s super versatile. I have made a step by step guide down below. Enjoy!
Prepping the hair is one of the most important steps when doing a hairdo. I always used to underestimate this step because “how important can it be?” – well as it turns out, quite. So for this look first what I do is I smooth the ends of my hair. I use Moroccan oil’s hydrating styling creme and just run my fingers over my hair. Second I use a grip spray also known as a dry shampoo. I LOVE using dry shampoo because it kinda gives you the option of molding your hair into place without the stiffness of hairspray. I lift the crown of my hair and spray it into the routs. Remember to let the product sit for a while before you continue. That way it’s easier to work with.
Parting the hair
See through hair ties / Asos (shop here)
Now this step you might not find totally necessary once you have the next step completely down but it’s good for beginners. Part your hair from just over your ears and up. I like to use these almost invisible hair ties, they are easy to use and really keeps the pony in place. If you havn’t tried them yet, please do, they will change your life.
Roll and tug
Now this part is a bit tricky to explain but I am going to give it a go anyway. So the key to the low bun is actually to create “a bun”. So what I like to do is start at the ends of my hair and using two hands, simply roll up. When you have a shape you like place two hairpins inside the roll, one on each side to hold it in place. You might need more than two, so just place them within the roll where you see fit. As long as it’s secure you are good to go on to the next step.
Secure with hairclip
Hairclip / Pico (shop here)
Securing your chosen hairclip just over the top of the bun is how I like to do it. I like these large slender hairclips from Pico, they are easy to use and you can fit a lot of hair in them. Finish the look by pulling out random strands of hair and you are done. Don’t worry about it being too perfect. It’s not supposed to be.
Jeg har været så heldig at få lov at teste og tale om Sebastian Professional’s nye krølle serie, twisted, i min seneste youtube video. Det er en vigtig del af mit job at teste produkter og jeg føler mig meget priviligeret når jeg får lov til at dele mine oplevelser med jer. Hvis du er så heldig at være født med et sæt krøller ligesom jeg, ved du at vi igennem vores liv prøver et hav af produkter. Jeg er kun 24 og jeg føler allerede jeg har prøvet det hele! Vi prøver og prøver og venter på at de perfekte produkter dukker op så vi kan håndtere vores frizz, tørhed, få mere definition eller måske bare et produkt som kan holde på krøllerne. Problemerne er mange, men fat mod. Sebastian Professional’s nye linje, twisted, er baseret på Flexi Alg™ Complex. Nu tænker du “og det er?”. Bare rolig, jeg kommer til det. Sebastian Professional har besøgt det store dybe blå og fundet ud af at alger er super flexible og har en særlig evne til at holde på fugt. Deres nye technologi bygger derfor på alge ekstrakt som giver krøllerne ekstra bounce. I min nye video kan i se mit eget førstehånds indtryk af produkterne og se mig teste dem både på natur krøl og på krøller lavet med jern. Så fra en krølle bølle til en anden håber jeg du vil nyde videoen!
english: I have been so lucky to get the opportunity to test and talk about Sebastian Professional’s new curl series, twisted, in my latest youtube video. It is a part of my job to test products and I see it as a true privilege that I get to share my experiences with you. If you are so lucky to have been born with a curly mane like myself, you have probably searched far and wide for products to help with the many issues we face. The frizz, the hold, the dryness, the definition and omg I could go on forever. Therefore we (the curly haired people) also try out a lot of products during our life until we find what is perfect for our hair. Sebastian Professional’s new line, twisted, is made with Flexi Alg™ Complex. Now you are like, “and that is?”. Don’t worry I will fill you in. Sebastian Professional has visited the deep blue sea and discovered that algae is super flexible and capable of holding moisture in a way that is very unique. This new technology can help curls hold it’s bounce better than ever. In my latest video I film my very first impression of these new products and test them on both natural curls and curls made with an iron. So from one curly girly to another, I hope you will enjoy this video.

Det er ikke så tit jeg bliver klippet. Mest fordi jeg har det lidt med at blive klippet som andre mennesker har det med at gå til tandlæge. Det er smertefuldt, unødvendigt og ikke verdens fedeste oplevelse. MEN – mit hår var virkelig blevet slidt, langt og dødt efter et års forsømmelse. Så jeg tog fat i vidunderlige Moroccanoil som jeg stoler blindt på og de anbefalede mig at besøge Saco Copenhagen. Her blev jeg mødt af salonens ejer Betty Christoffersen som skulle ordne mine lokker. Vi snakkede lidt om hvad jeg kunne tænke mig, hvordan jeg normalt har mit hår og hvad jeg har det godt med. Ikke noget med “du har krøller, så du skal have etager” – en frisure jeg har lidt under mange år fordi frisører bare ikke vil lytte! Men Betty var anderledes, vi snakkede meget undervejs om hvor langt vi var nået og hvad jeg gerne ville have samt hvilke produkter fra Moroccanoil hun brugte og hvordan jeg selv skulle bruge dem for at tæmme min nye frisure. Jeg endte med en kort fortolkning af Brigitte Bardot’s ikoniske 60’er hår og for første gang i mit liv gik jeg fra salonen og følte mig hørt, glad og smuk! Tak Moroccanoil og Saco Copenhagen fordi i lyttede!
english: It’s not often I get my hair cut. Mostly because the way I feel about going to the salon is the same way most people feel about going to the dentist. Painful, unnecessary and not awesome at all. BUT – my hair was seriously neglected, long, dull and dry. I consulted wonderful Moroccanoil who I trust blindly and they recommended Saco Copenhagen. I was met at the door by the owner of the salon, Betty Christoffersen, who was gonna do my hair. We talked for a while about what I wanted, how I liked to look and what I felt comfortable with. I didn’t get the usual “Oh you have curls so we will cut you in layers” – a hairdo I have suffered under for years because hairdressers just don’t listen! But Betty was different, we talked a lot during the cut about how far she had come and also about what Moroccanoil products she used. Just like she told me what Morroccanoil products I should use at home (and how) so I could tame my new locks. I ended up with a shorter version of the iconic 60’s Brigitte Bardot haircut and for the first time in my life I left the salon feeling heard, happy and beautiful! Thank you Moroccanoil and Saco Copenhagen for listening.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.

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.
Min rejse sæson er officielt begyndt! Første stop var Stockholm i går med L’oréal Paris til lancerings event på deres nye hårfarve linje, Colorista! En blanding af forskellige hårfarve produkter, både semi permanent og permanent men også nogle fede sprays som går ud efter kun én hår vask. Jeg var live på L’oréal’s danske facebook side i går hvis i vil se lidt mere om hvordan jeg fik farvet mit hår med blå striber. Det blev ret sejt! Både Sverige, Norge, Findland og Danmark var repræsenteret ved eventet – vi fik en masterclass i hårfarvning, fik lov til at male med spray paint og alverdens andre aktiviteter. Vildt dejlig dag med massere af farve på! I dag står den på lidt arbejde, så frokost og så en tur hjem igen til København! Næste uge – Paris!

All the nordics were represented at the event, we had a masterclass in hair dyeing, got to spray some longboards with spray paint and so many other things I can’t list them all, it was so much fun! Today we are just going to work alittle, then have a quick lunch and home we go again. Next week – Paris!

Jeg har rigtig mange krøller, og særligt et sted som Thailand gjorde virkelig at de piplede frem over det hele. Men også den danske sommer, salt vand og vind kan blæse mit hår fuldstændig ud af proportioner så jeg har testet lidt forskellige hår produkts kombinationer for at se om jeg kunne tæmme det lidt og det er den trio i ser ovenfor som stak af med prisen. Step nr. 1 en god hår olie, den blødgøre og samler håret – særligt denne fra Natura Siberica er helt fantastisk og har virkelig slået benene væk under mig. Den dufter ualmindeligt godt og så fedter den overhovedet, selv i fint hår som mit kan jeg putte i mange gange på en dag uden det fedter. Step nr. 2 et stjerne godt fladjern – GHD er forevigt mestre og slår alle med flere længder, deres styling jern er bare de bedste og så fås de altid i alle mulige seje afskygninger som denne fra deres Azores serie. Step nr. 3 helten som fanger fly away’s og tæmmer vilde lokker, en fyldende voks – jeg ved ikke hvad jeg skulle gøre uden, den samler mine spidser og kan bruges til at glatte frizz med, fuldstændig uundværlig og den var også vildt godt til at bruge i håret den dag jeg fik det flettet. Alt i alt det jeg kommer til at bruge i mit hår hele sommeren, jeg er fan!
english: I have a lot of curls and in Thailand they really came out from their hiding. But also the danish summer can make them pop, salty waters and a heavy breeze can blow my mane out of proportions, so I have tested different combinations of hair products to handle this problem and the result is the trio you see above. Step nr. 1 a good hair oil is essential, it softens and closes the fly aways – especially this one from Natura Siberica has knocked my socks of. It smells incredible and it is not greasy at all – even in fine hair like mine I can apply multiple times and it doesn’t get oily. Step nr. 2 the best flatiron you can get your hands on is necessary, GHD is the undefeated master and will forever be, their styling irons are just amazing to handle and leaves your hair beautiful and you can always get them in fun colors like this one from their Azores series. Step nr. 3 the fly away hero, my liquid wax, I use it to define my curls, to catch frizz (before it gets out of control) and it was also just the best to use before I had my hair braided, kept it all in place. Everything I am going to use this summer in one photo, I am a fan!
