This Is the Only Hairstyling Tool You’ll Ever Need

If there ever comes a time when you find yourself underneath my bed, you’ll find two hair tool boxes. One filled to the brim with tongs that couldn’t hold a curl, rogue hair brush drying tools and hairdryers purchased on a whim that never lived up to my expectations. In summary, the box of disappointments. 

Then there’s the other box that now only contains the Dyson Airwrap Complete Hair Styler, and this is the only box I’ve been going into. When Dyson launched the Airwrap they changed the hair game with the multi-styler that uses air to style hair instead of the extreme heat, that our hair has fallen victim to in the past. 

With Dyson, you can always expect some rather fancy tech and the styler has something called the Coanda effect that attracts hair to the attachments for a smoother finish. It also dries hair at the same time by making the most of your hair’s moisture. 

Sounds great, right? Well, the excitement continues, as the Airwrap now has two brand new attachments. The 20mm Barrels (£30) for tighter curls and those with fine hair, and a Small Round Volumising Brush (£30) for fringes and very short hair. So, all hair types can get it on the action.

Keep scrolling for my thoughts on this do-it-all tool.

I Know Good Bags, and These 13 Independent Brands Are My Favourites

Here at Who What Wear, we believe in the power of accessories. That’s why we’ve dedicated an entire series—Successorise—to it. After all, nothing has the ability to overhaul your outfits quite like a well-chosen sparkly hair grip or an elegant pair of earrings worn with a messy low bun. The same, naturally, applies to handbags.

Handbags are covetable—this we know—and while my own personal wish lists will always include the classics (think Chanel, Gucci, Hermès—the dream), nothing gives me quite the same thrill as discovering a new It-bag brand. When I started researching the best new bag brands for this piece, I consulted both Instagram and the trend reports of Matches, Net-a-Porter, and MyTheresa. And now, after hours of searching, I can confirm that these are the handbag brands to know now.

From the coolest bag I’ve seen (that costs just £38) to the year’s defining label, keep scrolling to discover the best new handbag brands that dominated 2020, and that we fully intend on carrying with us through to 2021.

Hailey Bieber Singlehandedly Kept A-List Street Style Alive This Year

After the last few months, it’s hard to remember the time when celebrities huddled together on the FROW, embraced one another on the red carpet, or popped to Balthazar for lunch. And my how we took these sighting for granted. Now that mask-wearing is mandatory, outfits are incognito, and events have been put on hold, only photographers blessed with 20/20 vision seem to have a chance at capturing the stars (and their attire) as they go about their day. However, there is one A-lister who has remained sartorially consistent throughout the year, and whose looks have filled the celebrity street style hole in our lives: Hailey Bieber

Unlike other famous faces who have leaned into the casual dressing vibe, Hailey’s looks have been just as chic as they were pre-lockdown; if not, even more so. The model, who tied the knot with Justin Bieber in a gorgeous ceremony last year, has been serving up some of the best looks we’ve seen in 2020. Striking the perfect balance between high-end and low-key, every outfit she has worn has aspirational, but not unattainable. So we decided to hone in on our favourite examples of Hailey Bieber’s style, breaking them down, so they’re easy to re-create. Featuring pieces you likely already own, keep scrolling to see Hailey Bieber’s coolest outfits of the year, then shop any items you need to complete the ensembles.

A Definitive List of the Shoes Taking Over in 2021

Shoes—remember those? Alright, so we may be being a touch dramatic, but there’s no denying that, over the past year, shoes (and bags for that matter), have taken a back seat and, instead, we’ve developed some new shopping habits. In lieu of treating ourselves to a new pair of heels to wear with your elegant wedding guest dress, we snapped up loungewear, knits, and candles in numbers never before seen. 

Still, that was last 2020 and right now we’re focussed on being optimistic; optimistic that our daily outfits in 2021 will call for something other than a slipper (don’t worry though, they’re not completely obsolete). 

So, which shoe trends are we kicking 2021 off with? We’re sure you’ll be pleased to hear that comfort is still very much a priority as far as footwear is concerned—as is durability. Without further ado, scroll below to see the shoe trends 2021 has to offer.

These 4 Women With Amazing Skin Told Me Which Products Actually Work

There’s more than one secret to good skin — it just takes some time to find the answer suited for you. And, while the journey to healthy skin can sometimes be frustrating when you’ve been steered in the right direction, it’s an amazing relief when you finally discover products that actually work. Luckily, these days, skincare enthusiasts are more than happy to share their favourite skincare products, failsafe routines, and dermatology treatments—as opposed to just thanking their genetics. To help start the year with a fresh new skincare regime—or at the very least some new products to play with— I asked four women with amazing skin which products they love the most.

I’m Most Often Complimented on My Soft Skin, Brows, and Nails—Here’s Why

One of the major perks of being a beauty editor is the abundance of products at my disposal. I’ve slathered my face in serums that cost more than a steak dinner, adorned my curls with the most luxe oils, and played with just about every liquid eyeliner there is. While I consider myself a humble queen who doesn’t rely too heavily on external validation, I am human and certainly take notice when certain features of mine rack up compliments. And when I post selfies to my Instagram Stories, or even sometimes when I’m out walking the dog, the areas that seem to attract the most praise from friends, family, and passersby are my skin, eyebrows, and nails.

As someone who’s got more beauty products than I can even fit in my house (I had to build out a whole organisational setup just to house them all), I do sometimes get product ADD. But I guess I’m passionate enough about soft skin, bushy eyebrows, and pretty nails to have cultivated go-to routines around those areas, stacked with products that keep my interest despite all the shiny distractions. Interested in the reveal? Keep reading for the 20 products that deserve all the credit.

I Love Finding Brands No One Else Knows About—and These Are My New Favourites

A year with as fresh a start as this one calls for new names to add to your fashion radar. Allow me! As we embark on a new year with the hope of not only getting dressed again, but getting really dressed up, there is nothing better than adding a meaningful wardrobe addition to your collection. And when I say meaningful, I mean an independent brand or designer.  

2020 made one thing clear for me: support small designers as much as possible. This is something I have always felt and could wax poetic about forever, but the impact of shopping small (but mighty) now feels far greater in light of the events of the last year. Not only is it a more sustainable way to shop, but to me there is nothing better than wearing something when you know who made your clothes and how they were made. Not to sound overly romantic but this year, when so much human connection feels lacking, receiving a handmade shirt with a lovely note from the person who made it feels like… magic. And recently, I’m finding other people feel this way too and are seeking deeper connections to the clothes they wear.

The Beauty Report: the 13 Products That Shaped 2020

At around this time every year, the beauty industry starts looking back. Brands analyse sales data and marketing successes, retailers and buying teams look at growing trends, while beauty editors and influencers trawl through the past 12 months’ worth of content to see what worked and what didn’t. The aim, of course, is to create some sort of yearly overview that will help predict the trends for the following year and essentially form some sort of plan. And with heaps of figures, data and research, it’s safe to say that more often than not, things pan out as expected, with the industry running like clockwork year in, year out, based off its forecasts. This year, however, beauty got a reality check.

For many moons, the industry has been composing a particularly lucrative narrative: The elixir of youth is always just around the corner. Whether it be in the form of a potent retinol serum, a gloss-enhancing hair mask or a glow-boosting highlight, our quest for eternal beauty is what keeps us, as consumers, trapped in a cycle of buying. But 2020 had different plans, and for the first time in decades, the founding core of the beauty industry was challenged.

While beauty trend reports usually point us towards frivolous new-gen textures and ancient undiscovered ingredients, like snow mushroom and cica, this year, you can expect to see no such thing. There’s no doubt that every industry has been drastically impacted by the events of 2020, however the beauty industry has been totally flipped on its head, but in a rather different way. For starters, while other industries faced plummeting sales during lockdown, beauty retailers faced mass shortages as sales of beauty products boomed.
