OK, I'm a little rubbish at blogging. I'm really going to try harder this time.
So much always happens at once and because I am very active on my Facebook Page and Twitter I feel like everyone's already seen it.
For this post however I resisted posting anything until I made a blog!
Due to my love of retro hair styling, as you can imagine I need a lot of product to hold it all in place.
I was fortunate enough to be sent some hairspray and a smoothing cream to try out from an exciting company called Fish Hairdressing co.

At first I thought it was something brand new but Fish have been going since 1987 and you can buy their products in Boots!
Due to the graphic designer past in me, I am very taken with packaging. Anyone who knows me, knows I simply LOVE pink!
|Starting point -My Natural Straight hair|
They arrived just in time for a photo shoot I was about to do for Petticoats A Plenty with a wonderful photographer named Emily Cromarty who I have been wanting to work with for quite some time.
I was in control of my own styling so it was the perfect time to test them out!

My hair is naturally polka straight and for the shoot I was having an up do so I didn't worry about setting it first.

I back brushed and tied it into a Bun at the back and what I call my curly quiff at the front. The hair spray was very light and smelled like holidays. I hate the smell of hair spray so this was very refreshing to have a hairspray that didn't have that chemical artificial smell.
My thoughts were if it's not too great at least I can use it to make my hair smell like coconut.
Turns out it was quite good.
I was a little skeptical of the 'Natural Hold' as I usually need 'EXTRA FIRM' to hold my hair in place.
The shoot was also on location and was quite breezy so I was very intrigued as to how it was going to hold up. (No pun intended)
I used the smoothing cream to 'smooth' my fly away hairs on the sides and fringe and had one last blast of the Hair spray before I braved the outdoors!
As you can see on the last picture I have few fly away hairs but I put that down to my freshly washed hair and not topping up with the hairspray in a few hours.
Overall I am enjoying using the Hairspray and Smoothing cream. They smell great, do their job and they are pink! I will defiantly have these products on my next beauty shopping list.
They are now apart of my everyday styling routine and I used them on the New Miss Fortune clothing photo shoot.
