A hot AUSSIE makeover...


* I'm warning you guys, you're about to witness an awful lot of my mug!
  Guess my camera spared me this time and captured me in a presentable state ;) *

Right, back to the point of this entry. As the title suggests,
a couple of months ago me and some fellow bloggers took part in a fun meet-up held by Aussie, including a hot yoga class and a hair makeover. Needless to say, my transformation gets an A+: it was frumpy hair turned to sexy locks in a matter of minutes!

So, the event took place in Hot Yoga Athens, an out-of-the-ordinary workout place where you can attend hot yoga or hot pilates classes. I should inform you though, the "hot" aspect of the story is not referable to the instructors' looks (heck, they might be hot but I can't confirm it!); it merely indicates that the classes are practised in a heated room
of 40C. It's said that the hot, humid air during a hot yoga class helps the body to release more toxins and heal its injuries faster- which is great news, right?

Yet, it didn't lure the exercise hater in me to give it a try (too hardcore, man!), so I shamefully stayed outside watching the rest of the girls stretching and posing to yoga postures :(

     The heated room. You can tell it's hot in there by the foggy windows!

Now, for the fun part: the hair makeover!

The Aussie team offered to treat us with a hairstyle of our choice, using the new Aussie Take The Heat range that is the perfect companion to blow-outs, hot tools, anything that damages the hair with heat. My flat, boringly straight hair called for only one option:

Boy, did I get some wave in my hair, weee!!!
See for yourselves:

     After: my sexy new hairdo! The loose waves added some (much needed) life and
     movement to my hair... I can't stop touching it!

Here's also a vid from that day, click "play" if you want to see me smiling really awkward at the camera... Blogger won't let me upload it in a bigger resolution, if you prefer a larger format you can watch it at my Facebook wall:


So there, my hair makeover was a hit. Will I be able to replicate it at home? Probably not, only because I'm such a lazy **s, snif... Anyhoo, watch this space as there will soon be more about the Aussie Take The Heat range!

Anyone been in a hot/Bikram yoga class?
Also, if you happen to know a quick&easy way to style loose waves, let me know!
