Lyndsay Happy Friday! What’s your drink of choice? Coffee or Tea or Wine? 

Coffee Coffee Coffee, I just loooove coffee. My favourite thing to do on a day off is to get up early and drink multiple cups.

Describe your style? 

Well it’s a very rare sight to see me without my heels on. I just love them, all day everyday, even to the park.

How do you relax? 

Usually when I get to spend time with my friends is when I have the time to relax. Laughing is always a great way to unwind after a busy week.

What are your non-negotitables with health and beauty?

You need to have a great foundation so for me, great skin care and quality shampoo, conditioner and treatments are a must have. Also I’m all about drinking lots of water. Water fixes everything.

Favourite current hair style?

Pixie Hair is basically a new take on braids. Braids will always be festive and fun and the Pixie Hair braid is a show stopper and we will show you how to create it at home.

How to Create the Pixie Hair Braid

  • Prep the hair using Volume Mouse and brush through
  • Part the hair down centre
  • Using a comb take a triangle section at the front hairline of one side
  • Spray hairspray on the section to give the hair grip
  • Divide the triangle into two sections and make a knot

  • Using the ends of the first knot, pull this hair under the second knot and knot together with the third repeat horizontal section

  • Using the ends of the second knot, pull this hair under and third knot to make the forth knot
