While I had heard of Nexxus hair products before, I had never used them before. I received an email from some of their PR folks about these great hair style ideas from Nexxus – all with Nexxus products that you can buy right at your local Walmart!
The options were:
-Elegant Side Chignon
-Smooth & Sleek
-Modern Top Knot
I opted to check out Weekend Chic as I though it seemed the most me. Here’s an image of what products and items you need in your house you should use to make this hairstyle:
I used two Nexxus products to style my hair this way – the Nexxus Pro Mend Split End Binding Mousse ($11.33 at Walmart.com) and they were out of the Styling Spray at the time so I substituted the Nexxus Pro Mend Split End Smoothing Shine Serum ($11.33 at Walmart.com).
Here I am before I started so you can get an idea of what my hair looked like pre-treatment:
You’re supposed to start out with wet hair so you can see that I wet my hair before I went to Step 1, which was to work the mousse through my hair:
After that was done, I used the Serum:
I made sure to really focus on my split ends with the serum, to make sure it would sink in:
I even brushed it through again just to make sure it all applied evenly:
Next, I blew my hair dry. I was supposed to have a round brush, which I didn’t have so I just sort of did the best I could with my usual brush:
Next I added one big curler to the top of my hair, which somehow didn’t end up turning up in a picture. (No really, that wasn’t intentional, not that I want you all to see how ridiculous I look in a curler!) The point of the curler is to give the front of your hair a tiny bit of body.
After that, I pulled my hair back into a half ponytail:
More half pony-tailing:
Before securing it, I twisted the half ponytail:
This is me being all, “honey, did I twist it okay?”:
And ta-da! Weekend Chic all done. What do you think? I kind of love it! Really fun and definitely easy to do. All totaled I think it took me 15 minutes to do all of this (including blow-drying my hair but note that I have super-thin hair and it never takes me long to blow dry!)
