One of my favorite looks from London during LFW consisted of this tough yet feminine look wearing one of my go-to hair dos, the messy fishtail braid. It’s the easiest hair-do I can do when I’m in a hurry and I always get complimented no matter how messy it is!

These amazing moto Nicola J brand leather pants have the sickest knee details. They make for the perfect fall item and I love how cool they look with whatever; heels, boots, converse, knitted sweaters or in my case, a metallic blazer for a more put together look.

The fishtail braid definitely eased up the overall look to give off a bit more of a romantic feel. Love finding a right balance between hair and my wardrobe! #hairmeetwardrobe

While in London, it was only right I had a little impromptu photo shoot with the iconic phone boxes! They’re just so fun and the bright red complemented my sweater and skirt so well, it was hard not to keep taking photos! Wish we had things like this in the states!

Looking at these photos is making me miss London now…but it’s getting me excited for fall weather outfits in LA.

Dear London.

So I’m talking to you guys a little after my trip from New York to London to share my experience during London Fashion Week with the TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe team.

As a newbie to the beautiful city of London, I didn’t know what to expect especially when it came down to what I should wear or how I should do my hair. I decided to check out the scene and vibe the first day and thought I would go from there. Being that my style is already super laid-back as it is, I wanted to style my hair according to my wardrobe choices and the event I was attending that day.  For me, it’s important to really think about every aspect of getting ready. From the styling of my hair down to the shoes to makeup and the little details like accessories/bag because every little detail counts.

I try to keep things rather simple even if it’s just my hair. I like for my hair to match my style that I’m portraying that day! So for example, during LFW I wore a messy fishtail braid (extra texture thanks to the Sea Salt Texturising Spray from the Casual Collection!) and paired it with a pretty pair of shiny chandelier earrings to glam up a silver tailored blazer I wore with leather skinnies and boots which gave off a cool feminine glam look! On another day, I waved out my hair more than the usual and added the TONI&GUY Sculpting Powder from the Casual Collection to help add extra volume & texture. This loose wave look is the best look to style your hair when you want to wear a beanie… so I threw one on to match my casual hipster look for that day!

Working with the TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe team made me realize how important the philosophy of Hair Meet Wardrobe is. Hair has always been a huge part of my look but after being in New York and London for Fashion Week, I realized how key having your hair styled according to your look is… I think it’s not just about what you wear but how you wear it. It’s not about what you do to your hair, it’s about the confidence it gives you. I think you should be able to tell a story with your overall look and hair definitely has a big say in the story you want your audience to read. Since TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe has 4 fashion-inspired hair styling product collections – Casual, Classic, Glamour and Creative, you can style your hair to go with whatever you are wearing. Like I always say, you hair is your biggest accessory so why not use it to help complement your wardrobe?

After my first day in London, I realized that the style there was impeccable. There was something really special about how the people in London dressed and carried themselves that I found so endearing! It has been the best street style I’ve seen anywhere by far. I saw different trends on hair styles & haircuts in London that went so seamlessly with what they were wearing from boho-grunge, to classic preppy and even glam rock, there was a little bit of everything! I left feeling like chopping off my hair because I saw so many girls rocking short hair dos! Ah! Perhaps that’s my next haircut? I definitely tried to bring a little bit of their swag down with me…needless to say, I left inspired.

Next time you’re putting your outfit together, make sure to think about how to style up your hair too because it’s definitely dressing from the head down kind of situation! Have fun with it!

Take a look at some of the looks I rocked from my hair down to what I wore to a little diary of London! Be sure to follow TONI&GUY on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and you can shop the TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe products now at Target stores.

It was definitely beanie weather in London; but I definitely used my favorite hair products (Sea Salt Texturising Spray to get these texturized waves! )
