Find out how the blonde beauty achieves her own hairstyles, what inspires her boho-esque festival fashion choices and why her motto is “go hard or go home!”
What do you love most about Coachella festival & who do you want to see perform?
I love how Coachella has got such a chilled out and fun vibe, plus the setting is incredible and the sun is always shining. The music acts are always amazing too and the fact that when you walk into the festival and see the iconic Coachella wheel, you know that you’ve arrived. I was most excited to see Lady Gaga! And then DJ Snake and Martin Garrix as well. The line-up was great this year!
Blonde or brunette? Have you ever, or would you ever, go brunette?
I am definitely a blonde! I once tried on one of the girls in the band’s dark extensions in the front of my hair and it looked terrible so I wouldn’t try it again – unless I tried low lights so that it was dark underneath but still light on top. I definitely wouldn’t go dark all over.
What’s your favourite go-to hairstyle?
My two go-to hair looks are a relaxed wave or sleek and straight; both can be easily done using the ghd Platinum Tropic Sky Styler which is my go-to for styling my hair. Finish with a spritz of the ghd Final Fix Hairspray too for ultimate hold; it keeps hair in place all day and all night.
What’s your day to day hair styling routine?
I am good at styling my hair myself, apart from ponytails, I am not good at doing ponytails! My two go-to hair looks are a relaxed wave or sleek and straight; both can be easily done using the ghd Platinum Tropic Sky Styler which is my go-to for styling my hair.
Best haircare tip you’ve been given?
For the perfect wavy hair, leave the ends out so that the waves are more beachy than bouncy. I use the ghd Platinum Tropic Sky Styler to create beachy waves and use the ghd Root Lift Spray for added volume and texture. And for keeping blonde hair healthy I make sure that I have a good hair treatment mask put on so that my hair doesn’t dry out – I always do this at the same time as when I have my highlights done, to nourish and repair my hair.
