If you are living in Cape Town, you will understand the pain of washing your hair with buckets at your feet and having to turn the water off while lathering (and freezing in the process now that it’s getting colder). Well, we have a solution to save you time in the mornings and, most importantly, help with the dire water crisis we are experiencing.
1. Messy bun
This is a go-to for most moms on the run and trendy teens. It is super easy and perfect for any event or even couch lounging. A bit of hairspray goes along way.

3. Halo braid
Calling all angels… from wedding upstyles to classic dinner date do’s. This requires a bit more technical experience but the messier the better so give it a go. The more texture your hair has the better.
