OSiS | Rough Rubber

Hello Ladies,

I have tried to create a boho winter look using the Schwarzkoph OSiS+ Rough Rubber Texture Paste. I love a boho look, but I always associate it with the summer months and I want something I can wear with all the gorgeous rustic and khaki coloured chunky knits and dipped hemmed shirts I've been seeing!

To create this look I have used everything in the top image. It's such a simple look to create and doesn't take too long with it being a 'messy' style - it's not meant to look perfect!

Firstly, my hair is naturally curly and even after a straight blow dry it manages to kink itself back into some sort of wave as you can see in the third picture! This can sometimes be annoying but in this case it was doing what I wanted (for once!). If you don't have this type of hair I would suggest plaiting your hair, either from wet or dry and applying extra heat with a hairdryer on the plaits. However, if you are looking for instant waves, you can use your straighteners by sectioning off pieces of hair and running them down the hair making an 'up and down' movement which creates an instant wave in the hair.

I then used my back comb to back comb the root of my hair all over the top and crown to create extra volume, I haven't used hairspray this time but I would advise it to keep your hair intact for a long time and maintaining the volume!  Next up I used the Schwarzkoph OSiS Rough Rubber Texture Paste by applying a pound sized blob on one of my hands, rubbing my hands together then scrunching my hair all over. I must say, it smelt absolutely delicious- so fruity!It keeps those waves in place and makes your hair smell super yummy - bonus!

I then made a messy plait across my hair line. It literally is a case of just pulling bits of hair in and not doing it to perfection! I then just clipped this underneath the side of my hair with a hair pin. Simples!

Then of course adding some feathers...I love this feather clip I picked up in Topshop. All the gorgeous coloured feathers work great in Winter or Summer in my opinion! I just clipped this underneath the plait and voilaa :) 

How do you create your messy hair look?
