Every now and then, we have a hair style that completely takes us by surprise. One of the most recent and exciting ‘wow’ moments was the discovery of the Robert Pattinson ‘do. If you haven’t heard of him, he’s the British actor who played Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter films. His hair is definitely unique enough to be recognised, but it is so well-executed that it completely takes the ‘wow’ factor. He’s since gone viral and his hairstyle has been copied by many, including ourselves. Let’s take a look at how we too can steal his fabulous hairdo.

The Hair Diet

If you want to copy the look, you need to first make sure your hair is conditioned and moisturised enough to withstand the weight of multiple hair accessories. A good hair diet can also help with the styling process. Starving your hair of nutrients will make it weaker and more prone to breakage. It’s best to eat natural, healthy foods that will provide your hair with vital nutrients and boost its condition. One of the best meals for conditioning and strengthening your hair is the avocado toast. Not only does it provide good fats and nutrients that are essential for hair growth, but it also supplies vitamins C and E, which help to protect your strands from damage. When you have a diet plan in place that supplies your hair with nutrients, it’s easier to keep styling it as you please. Conditioning your hair and eating healthily goes hand-in-hand.

Use Products Carefully

It’s never a good idea to use too many hair products. Trying to work out which hair products are suitable for your hair can be difficult. Some hair products are only suitable for certain hair types, while others are completely useless and a complete waste of money. When you overuse hair products, it can lead to serious hair damage. The trick is to use the right products for the right reasons. When you have a specific issue you want to address – be it lack of shine, curl definition, or overall radiance – it’s best to try out a product that is known to work for that particular need. As a general rule of thumb, it’s best to stick to hair products that contain oils. For example, shea butter is a wonderful natural source of oil that can be both protective and restorative for your hair. Its rich, buttery texture helps to create the right atmosphere for styling. When you use oils and butters, it means your hair will stay shiny and in good condition for longer. The key to keeping your hair damage-free is to use products that are not overly processed and contain as few toxic ingredients as possible. Always look out for those hair products that can be trusted to be both effective and safe.

Start Small

When you’re starting off, it’s always best to go easy. You don’t want to overload your hair with multiple accessories, especially since you’re just learning how to style it. When you get the hang of things, you can add another hair piece or two. Just remember to start small and take it easy. If you feel like your hair is struggling to hold all the extra weight, it’s best to add accessories little by little. For now, try out some lightweight scarves or flower crowns. When you add more detailed hair or makeup accessories, your hair will appear more weighed down and less ‘lifelike’.

Play Around

There is no rule book when it comes to styling your hair. We have all the ingredients, tools, and knowledge needed to create any kind of hairdo, but sometimes the results are unexpected. When you’re styling your hair, there are various things you can do to give yourself an additional edge. One of the best tips is to experiment with different ways of wearing your hair. Sometimes a simple way of wearing your hair can change everything. For example, putting your hair inside out can make all the difference. When you wear your hair like this, it will completely change the way people perceive you. Experiment with different ways of wearing your hair and you’ll soon find a look that works for you.

Vary The Hair Accessories

Adding too many accessories to your hair can make it look messy. You don’t need to add another scarf to your already overflowing scarf collection, nor do you need to wear your jewellery too often. Instead, try adding in pieces that are on different occasions. If you feel like your hair is lacking a touch of glamour, adding in a stunning earring can help. Or, if you want your hair to look more like a sculpture, then try out a bold necklace. As a general rule of thumb, it’s best to stick to hair accessories that are neutral in nature. For example, rose-shaped clips can work for any occasion, while chandelier earrings are only suitable for special events or night out attire.

Stay Scared

Adding in a touch of scary makes for a very interesting hairdo. You can start out light, adding in a few spider webs or snakeskin patterns, before gradually increasing the amount of scary stuff. When you go too far, it will eventually break the magic of the ‘wow’ factor. So, be careful not to overdo it. For an entirely different look, you can even create a terrifying clown mask and wear it on your head. The choice is yours!

Do you ever wake up in the morning just to find your hair all over the place, even though you had it completely styled the night before? You might want to consider taking a closer look at how you sleep, because there is a good chance that the root of the problem is in your pillow. When you sleep on your stomach, your hair will get sucked into the pillow and cause you a headache in the morning. Try out a different sleeping position and see whether or not this problem goes away. There is also the option to get a silk pillowcase, which is known to improve the quality of your sleep. When you use good quality silk pillowcases, it means your hair will stay put and won’t end up in the pillowcase in the first place. This alone can sometimes solve the problem. Remember: always choose silk if you want to keep your hair looking healthy and shiny.

The Final Touch

Hair is a fantastic way to accessorise. It can add that extra touch of glamour to your outfit, even when it’s not directly attached to your head. When you master the art of styling your hair, there are many cool things you can do with it. From adding in a colourful accessory to add some punch, to using a scarf to hide large parts of your hair, there are endless ways to wear and style your hair. Do take your time and do it right. You’ll be able to pull off anything once you get the hang of it.
