This is the last of the my series with TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe. Looking back, despite the slight stress in getting the post out on time and creating impactful visuals, I must say that I really enjoyed the journey. The creative process each week is very fun - challenging myself to take on a new hairstyle that I've never tried before, pairing up the right hairstyles to complete my look for the theme... It is only after this whole series that I realize how much I, as well as so many other women, neglect to style our hair! How many of you are guilty of waking up, giving your hair a rough comb and then going out to town or to work/school just with your hair let down or tied up in a ponytail? After all, hair is one of the most important things which affects the way you look and how people judge you.

I had fun playing with the various TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe ranges and I must say I especially like the Sea Salt Texturizing Spray from the Casual range as it creates texture and natural movement within your hair easily, while the Spritz and Shine Liquid Mousse from the Glamour range is great for giving your hair some healthy shine.

For this last creative look, I have chosen to pull all the hair away from my face by creating tiny twist braids from the crown to the sides of my head. This hairstyle is very easy to create and is great for girls on a weekend out to town, or even when you want to look good while hitting up the gym! (Side note - I really need to do something about those roots growing out, my hair is now caught between black and copper red-brown.)

I offset this hairstyle with some contrasting elements in my outfit choice. Hannah, the runched bust strap camisole, from In Good Company is really very comfortable, with a suede-like treated fabric. It's very understatedly chic, and I paired it here with a pair of ripped denims for some street cred. The designers behind In Good Company are the same creative force that used to be behind alldressedup, and I love their designs for their functionality (comfort) and versatility (from day to night) with the pairing of the right accessories. Their designs offer today's working women with simple, yet chic classics and is flattering on the body, with subtle draping done at the right places.

Shot at National Museum on a cloudy Sunday morning, that's how I like to spend my weekends. Wait - I guess that's how I'd like to spend the rest of my life - with art, fashion, good wholesome food and my own space and freedom to do some creative work that can preferably help some other people to better their lives at the same time too.
