Tangle Angel’s Date Night Looks







Look 1
The Chelsea Blow Dry

Richard Ward’s (creator of Tangle Angel) top tips.

A Chelsea Blow Dry is a perfect date night look! It’s soft and feminine and all about bounce and lashings of gloss, with lots of volume and movement through the ends. Products are important, but having hair that’s in good condition thanks to regular trims, as well as a decent hairdryer with a nozzle and real bristle round brush are essential to making it look fabulous!

Here’s how to get the look:

  • Apply a golf-ball size amount of volumising mousse to damp hair and brush through for even distribution.
  • Start rough drying hair in a controlled way, lifting and heating roots with your fingers – don’t shake the hairdryer about.
  • Use a medium-size round bristle brush to blow dry the hair smooth, then section and roll up into large heated rollers.
  • Allow the hair to cool for about 15 minutes and remove the rollers, raking through with fingers to break the curls up.
  • To finish, run a lightweight serum through the mid-lengths and ends for extra shine.

Hair essentials:

  • The Richard Ward Chelsea Anti-ageing Argan Elixir (£5.99, Waitrose.com)

Romantic Undone Waves inspired by Gigi Hadid

Richard says – Soft, undone waves are the ultimate date night look – they’re effortless and pretty while still looking stylish, and work well with practically any outfit!

To create gorgeous loose waves:

  • Spritz damp hair with Richard Ward Chelsea London Anti-ageing 10-in-1 Styling Spritz for added body and shine, and blow-dry smooth using a medium-size round brush.
  • Once hair is dry, start at cheekbone level and wind random-sized sections of hair away from the face around a medium-barrel tong; hold in place for a few seconds and release.
  • Once finished tonging, rake your fingers through the waves to break them up for an undone, loose feel.
  • Finish with a blast from the cool shot on your hairdryer to set the style in place, and lightly mist hair with Richard Ward
  • Chelsea London Argan Hairspray for light hold.
  • For a more textured, beachy look, once hair is dry spritz in L’Oreal Professionnel tecni.art Beach Waves Texturizing Salt
  • Spray and lightly scrunch in to the hair.’

Middle-Parted Milkmaid Braid, Inspired by Nicole Richie

Richard says – Braids are a huge trend and add a romantic, flirty twist to the most low-key of styles – they can also be a lifesaver if you just haven’t got time to wash and blow dry your hair!

  • Prep damp hair with a spritz of Richard Ward Chelsea London Keratin Bulking Spritz for extra volume, and blow dry with fingers to encourage natural movement.
  • Use fingers to create a rough centre parting and split the hair in two. On one side, take three sections from the front of the head at the hairline and begin French-braiding backwards towards the nape of the neck, adding pieces of hair to each section as you braid
  • Repeat on the other side of the parting; where both braids meet at the back, combine into one plait and secure the ends with a clear elastic
  • Roll the plait up and tuck under itself, securing in place with a pin
  • Finish by massaging the braids lightly to release flyaways, and spritz with L’Oreal Professionnel tecni.art Beach Waves for a slightly dishevelled look.
