Living in los Angeles, if I don’t say so myself, I think I have THE PERFECT Cali car! The 2018 VW Beetle Convertible!

Its the perfect car because with perfect weather 11 and a half months of the year aka ALL the time, I have the top down 90% of the year…its like we have only one season in LA… SUMMER?! #notcomplaining

I actually got so confused whilst talking to family in South Africa the other day because they were telling us how hot its been lately in Cape Town and I was like huh? how? we have opposite seasons to SA and we’re in summer? no?.. But then I remembered, our  ‘Cali Winter’ is actually ALSO a summer 😉

However, with a pro, theres usually a con… the pro being my awesome car but the con being my constant hair dilemma. Wind and hair aren’t a great fit but I’ve had to learn to make it work, because if I wanna look cute with the top down, I just gotsta make the hair work! So if you have the same situation as me, don’t worry, I got you! This hairstyle works like a bomb! Its quick, its easy and it doesn’t allow for the wind to blow your hair in your face to obstruct vision. #winning


  1. Soothing Balm – thats the bright orange product! How cool?! It contains both Biotin and Coconut Oil which is great for conditioning prior to styling. You just need to nourish the ends of your hair whilst damp after washing and towel drying.
  2. Hairdryer
  3. Heat Shield – you know how much I love this stuff. I think I’ve included this product in every post as it’s a step necessary to include with every hairstyle when using a styling tool to protect your hair against heat damage and split ends.
  4. Hair spray – keeps the loose strands down and assists with keeping hair in tact against the wind
  5. Curing wand – 25mm because I wanted tighter curls as apposed to the loose waves I aim to achieve when my hair is down.

All done! Lets head out for a drive!

This hair style is not only perfect for a day in your convertible but also best when you’re in a rush for any occasion. It takes only 5 mins to put this hairstyle together yet you still come out looking like you’ve gone to Dry Bar! Whoop!

Let me know if you have any other hairstyle suggestions for another windy day!
