Hershesons; pins, ties & spray

I've always struggled with my hair.

And by that I mean, when trying to style it I become all cack-handed and whatever I try do with this fuzz on my head - it just fails. So when I was contacted by Hershesons and asked if I'd like to try out some of their hair products I figured I would spend a bit of time trying to create some kind of style with them!


Hershesons aren't a brand I've heard of before, if I'm being completely honest, but their website & product range instantly impressed me and has made me wish I did more with my hair!
The products I tried out are their hair pins (£6) hair bands (£6.50) and Hershesons ♥ Batiste dry shampoo (£5.50)

Now, I've never used hair 'pins' before, hair grips on the other hand are my best friend, however I was pleasantly surprised how easy they are to use and how well they hold your hair in place. They also kindly coloured matched them to my hair so they blend in nicely! The pins (and bands) come in very cute little tins that are so handy! I'm a nightmare for leaving grips & ties all over the place so these will stop that problem.
The hair bands (not used in this 'style' its all thanks to the pins!) are great quality and I'd struggle to see how they'd ever snap. They're thick & tight so hold your hair in place all day very well, plus again there are a few colour variations, which is always nice. 
As for dry shampoo, I've never seen it as a necessity, but then I'd never really tried a good one, until now. I think this collaboration is great and can we just say; how cute is the packaging? Very chic but yet girly so it doesn't look out of place on your dressing table (which is quite the opposite of most of Batiste very bright, patterned bottles). I used this on 'second day' hair and it worked a treat and added a bit of extra volume which was needed with this hair style!
Overall I'm very impressed with what Hershesons has to offer and I'll definitely be looking out for more of their products! Oh and if you're wondering, I tried to copy this hairstyle, although with a bit more of a 'messy' edge! 

What do you think? Have you tried Hershesons before?

  2. The packaging is so cute! Thats a much nicer looking can of batiste, wish they normally looked like that!

    Your hair looks very pretty pinned up loosely like that. Might put a little more effort in to mine tomorrow, you've inspired me! Normally just messy bun it, which takes less than 10 seconds, haha!

  4. You are so beautiful Samantha - like, breathtakingly beautiful, wow. These Hershesons bits look awesome, I love their blow dries so I should really get my mitts on some of their bits and pieces. Especially the grips, I have zero idea how to make that work!

    Great post lovely.

  10. You look gorgeous with your hair pulled back like that! I too have never been the best at styling my hair, but a few months ago I discovered the Goody Spin Pins which have made creating a cute top knot beyond easy :)

  11. Honestly, after my spending ban I am going to buy some of the pins and hairbands. I am fed up of Primark hairbands that stretch after one use and snap! And my current bobby pins just don't get the job done :) plus the tins are so cute!

  12. I love how your hair turned out. So pretty! I usually pull my hair up with a thousand bobbi pins because I hate how damaged and color-treated it is right now x

  15. These products look great and sound like they worked a treat. I don't do much with my hair either but the pins sound really easy to use so would be good to try different hairstyles with - I love what you have done with your hair too.
