Having A Go At ... PPQ AW12 Hair With Schwarzkopf Osis+

Tuesday 13 March 2012

I was recently sent a couple of cool products from the Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+ range; Body Me Fullifying Volume Serum and Glamour Queen H2O Free Volumising Hairspray, the idea behind the gift was to see if I could transform my hair into a London Fashion Week style using these products!

Never one to shy away from a challenge that involves a bit of glamourising I quickly chose the gorgeous Veronica Lake side-parted waves seen on the PPQ runway.

I applied the Body Me serum to my towel dried hair (no greasiness, no stickiness) and blew my hair into my usual bob with a round brush but instead of turning it under, I flicked it out and instead of my usual 'anywhere' part, I made a distinct side part. I have to say, my hair did feel a lot thicker yet more manageable, which must've been totally down to the serum. Now most of the models had glorious long locks like the chick above, but I have a fringed bob which made it a tad trickier to negotiate something vaguely resembling this style, especially with the fringe. However, with a bit of persuasion from the Glamour Queen hairspray my fringe was happy to blend and sat to the left quite happily, allowing me to crack on with getting my sultry wave on, yey! So I took my heated curling tongs and took wide sections in 2 layers and curled them using a diagonal direction to create loose waves. The Body Me serum also protects against heat damage so I could do my curling guilt free :) And here is the result!

It looks really different to my normal style, especially the fringe, but I really like it! I set it with the Glamour Queen hairspray and it feels really bouncy, not hard and icky like some freeze sprays. Overall, I'm really impressed with both of these products, especially the Body Me as I'm ALWAYS looking for bigger hair!

You can buy the Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+ range from Feel Unique, prices start at £7.40 raising to £13.60 for the gift sets (the 2 products I used for this style actually come together in the Get Volume set!). I'm definitely impressed by the quality of the products I tried and I can see myself checking the other products out when I'm in need of a new hair boost :)

J - PPQ me!

    1. Aww thanks so much, I have to say, it did feel pretty glam, especially with the red lips!

  2. I use "Soft'n Straight" by Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+, it's gorgeous.


    1. I'll have to remember that for when my hair grows long again, it has a natural wave to it. Thanks!
