Pisces

Choose something that creates an effortless glow but also provides you with the right amount of heavenly hydration for your skin! Try the Nuxe Dry Oil, you won’t regret it.

Aries

The Aries symbol is of course the fierce and fantastic horns of a ram, so no doubt you love a strong, contoured complexion! Become bronzed to perfection with this Max Factor Contour palette and thank us later…

Leo

Leo’s are super duper confident, you don’t mind standing out from the crowd, and you certainly wouldn’t say no to a statement makeup look. Leo’s should try to create a bold, bushy brow with the SOSU brow kit, this way you certainly won’t be missed!

Effortless Autumn/Winter Hairstyles

Effortless Autumn/Winter Hairstyles

The summer nights are no longer and these darker nights are beginning to make us wonder… will we ever leave the house with more than just a half-dried hair look? Luckily we have rounded up a selection of quick and easy hairstyles you can replicate at home with the use of just a comb! 

Don’t get yourself in a muddle, just follow our small guide to autumn’s hottest looks. We’ll make sure that styling your hair will never be a struggle again! 

1. Clip It Back

Go to town on your accessories with this functional and affordable look. Not only is it simple, it’s also the hottest hair trend this year, with every catwalk filled with pretty pearl clips, it’s a must-have addition to your lookbook. We recommend using the funkiest clips you can find, style your hair and then go wild! Don’t be afraid to mix and match with different sizes and textures, this will help to add a touch of personality to an otherwise casual look. 

2. Mermaid Waves

Defeat the heat and use a sock to create effortless mermaid waves. Yes, you heard it right, using a pair of socks to wave your hair is so on-trend RN. Following a viral trend on TikTok, beauty fanatics have been curling their hair with the help of a little bit of water and a pair of their fave socks! So, save yourself and hit the snooze button  tomorrow, because you won’t need to spend 30 minutes trying to salvage your bodacious bed-head, just separate your damp hair into a few sections, then weave each section of hair in between each sock in a crisscross motion. Finish the look off in the morning with the texturizing salt spray to maximise volume and create a long-lasting effect. 

3. Half Up Half Down

If your hair tends to get greasy, oily or frizzy, this look is the perfect way to deal with those extra oils. It works best on those days where you just can’t be bothered to wash your hair. Whether your hair is short, long or curly, just section the front of your hair and tie it back with a cute clip and a bobble and hey presto you’re all done! 

4. Low Bun and Scrunchie 

Hairstyle trends come and go, but the low bun is timeless. Whether you prefer your bun to be sleek or your bun to be slightly tousled, this classic look has you covered. Use a brush and either gel or pomade to pull back the hair into a bun, creating a clean, fresh finish. If you’re going for more of a relaxed feel, spray your hair with dry shampoo to create a lightweight texture, then, tie it back loosely and pull out a few strands to shape your face. Don’t forget to pop a cute scrunchie around your bun to really make your hair stand out from the crowd. 

5. Scarf It

Say goodbye to wasting time in front of the mirror and hello to lie-ins this season with the trouble-free scarf look! Wear it on your head, tie your hair with it or even wear it around your neck for an oh so chic look. The scarf is a versatile way to turn that basic pony into a playful ponytail in just a few simple steps. Autumn is here, so be sure to match your scarf to the colours that appear this season…
