Meet The Vlogger: Jade Billington
From cute braids to fun twists and messy buns, vlogger, Jade Billington, is giving us serious festival hair inspo this summer. The how-to video is landing soon, but in the meantime, read on as we talk YouTube, go-to styles and why the Kaleidoscope Compact Styler should be in every girl's festival hair kit!
Tell us a little bit about you and your YouTube channel
Hello, my name is Jade Billington and I’m a twenty-something newlywed who loves to ramble to my camera about all things girly, fashion, lifestyle... and then post it on YouTube!
What are your favourite videos to film?
This is such a hard question because I love filming all types of videos! But I recently honeymooned at Disney World in Florida and vlogged the entire trip and had such a blast capturing everything so I think that has to be a winner right now.
What other blogs do you tune in to?
I’m a big fan of watching day in the life videos however YouTube being YouTube, I often find myself ending up watching videos of dancing cats, old John Lewis Christmas adverts and how to cook a roast dinner using only your toaster! So… in answer to the question a bit of everything really, but that’s the beauty of YouTube and I love it.
Who would you happily swap hair with?
Sarah Jessica Parker for sure, her hair is bloomin’ beautiful! She totally rocks the messy bed head look and it’s my absolute fave.
How experimental do you get with your hair?
I work full time and have quite a long drive to work in the mornings so weekdays I flit between the messy bun and ‘you’re lucky I brushed my hair this morning’ look. However, on weekends I do like to mix things up with some fun braided updos or big curls.
What's your go-to hair style?
Beachy relaxed curls is always a go-to for me.
Do you have any top festival hair tips?
Dry shampoo and of course a Tangle Teezer Kaleidoscope Compact Styler is an absolute must!
What's your instant beauty pick-me-up?
A freshly-washed face followed by a coating of rich moisturiser. Not the obvious choice I know, but I’m a big fan of skin care and a bit of a clean freak so it always perks me up if I’m not feeling my best.
We know it's hard to pick, but do you have a favourite Tangle Teezer?
Ahhh, I LOVE all of them, so this is a hard one! But if I had to choose I would go for The Original because I’ve been using it non-stop since 2012 and if I’ve ever gone away and stupidly forgotten to take it with me I really notice the difference. Normal hair brushes just don’t cut it anymore! I also love that you can get such fun and colourful designs. I recently went to Disney World and obvs took one of the Tangle Teezer Disney hairbrushes with me. It definitely made me feel like I was one step closer to becoming a Disney princess whilst battling the monster Monica Geller frizz the humidity gave my hair out there!
What's up next for you in 2017?
Honestly, I really don’t know what 2017 has in store for me right now, but I’m very excited to see and embrace whatever crosses my path.
Thanks Jade! Watch her brilliant How-To: Festival Hair video in action below.
