Styling Trick - Super Lazy Ironing

This is an incredibly lazy styling secret I learned on a recent fashion shoot.  I often wear a headscarf wrapped around my hair at work to keep it out of my face whilst doing make-ups. Think, the image below but with my hair all pulled back into a quiff.

It was really early (as it always is when a make-up artist gets to a shoot) and my headscarf was shoved in my bag and still in a knot from the night before.  I untied it to wear and it was a crumpled mess.  

The stylist who I was working with nonchalantly offered "Just straighten it", Huh?, "Use your GHD's and flat iron it".  What the what?.  Light bulb moment!

It worked a treat! 

Now, I'm not saying you should use this tip to iron almost anything (you can!) but I am saying if you are just dashing out of the door and your favourite top or whatever has a crease in it give this trick a go (just read the garment label to make sure it can be ironed obvs!), it is a lazy quick fix and I love it!

  2. Ha, I always do that to my button-down blouses! I have a long commute, so cotton gets wrinkled by the time I get to the office, but at least I can look semi-polished by ironing the collar, cuffs, hem, and button placket.

  3. I never thought of that... thanks for the idea!

  4. funny post and great tip! thanks!
