I Hate Waiting Around, But These Hair Masks Work in Less Than 5 Minutes

If anyone were to ask me what my least favourite day of the week was, I would say, without hesitation, wash day. To wash, treat, detangle, dry and style my hair is not a quick job. And while I do try to lean into seeing the time as productive and meditative with specific hair-washing playlists to sing along to in the shower and podcasts to ponder on when I’m detangling, I do spend a lot of the time wishing it was over. Anything that can speed up the process is greatly received, which is why I’m a huge fan of quick hair masks.

This Easy TikTok Trick Turns Your Old Tank Tops Into Sexy Miniskirts – But Does It Work?

Another week, another viral TikTok hack that we feel compelled to try. The latest how-to trending on the app has users transforming old tank tops into formfitting miniskirts - absolutely no sewing necessary. We'll be the first to admit that we were skeptical, to say the least. The origin of the hack can be traced back to TikToker @kalechng and consists of three simple steps: 1. Flip the tank top backwards (so the front is facing you); 2. Crisscross the straps; 3. Step into it, as if it's a skirt. That's it, that's the trick. Some adventurous users go a step further and tuck the straps in the back for a slightly more modest vibe. Believe it or not, the resulting look is a chic crisscross miniskirt that's perfectly suited for summer. Pair it with a crop top and an oversize jean jacket, o...

It's been a while since we thought about it.You can never get too much of a good thing, and right now, our thing is denim. After being somewhat cast aside for the first time in recent history thanks to the stretchy waistbands and comfy loungewear of the pandemic, jeans are back on the radar. Searches for jeans and denim trends have been on the up since the beginning of the year, new looks (such as patchwork or criss-cross waistbands) have been well received by shoppers, and the more we look at our friends IRL and online the more we notice denim-centric outfits coming back to the fore.  In the past few weeks alone, the Who What Wear UK team has reported on the surprising rise of printed jeans, pinpointed 12 perfect spring outfits that all revolve around your favourite blues, decoded the ...
