Hair bow! :D
Took me forever, but it turned out beautifully! (:
My animal print nails. (: This is what I do when I’m not doing hairstyles.
Hello followers! (:
Today I decided to do some natural looking curls with a curling wand!
The wand that I used is a Remington T Studio Pearl Ceramic Curling Wand in the large size. I got it for Christmas and I absolutely love it! It’s bigger so it doesn’t allow the curls to get to tight which is a must for a more natural look. I have tried some smaller wands and the results are less natural and more perm like. So if you’re wanting tighter curls then go for the smaller size! (:
But anyway! This style was really easy to achieve. It only took my about twenty minutes to curls all of my hair (and I have a lot of hair so…). I first sectioned off my hair from my ears up and curled that section, then I divided the remaining hair in half and curled that, then I parted my hair and curled the rest.
It’s pretty important that you use a curling wand to get these more natural looking curls. If you used an iron with a clip the curls look flatter.
Never used a curling wand before? Not sure if you want to buy one? Use your iron like a wand and wrap the hair around the barrel (not using the clip at all) for a similar effect! (:
Well I hope you can all try out this hairstyle and that you like it as much as I did! I had already typed all of this out and then Tumblr had some sort of error and deleted my post! And now I have to rush to work so I will proof read later. :p
Have a wonderful day!
Hi everyone. (:
It’s raining! And whether you’re a fan of the rain or not, there’s no arguing that it doesn’t mess up your hair. So I decided to do a rainy day hair style!
This is pretty much just a loose fishtail braid that will get your hair out of your face and will still look nice if it gets wet. My hair doesn’t usually hold braids very well, but this braid has stayed in all day long and still look great!
So here’s how to do this style:
1. Part your hair wherever you normally do and pull it all to the front over one shoulder. If you have any bangs or fringe clip, it our of the way for now.
2. If you have layers, stick a couple of bobby pins in the hair that lays across the back of your neck. This is because as the day goes on the braid will loosen up a little, and if you have the bobby pins there the layers will not fall out.
3. Fishtail braid down the length of your hair. (Don’t know how to do that? Send me a message and I’ll make a tutorial!)
4. Finish the braid with a small elastic.
5. Take your bangs and apply some texturizing wax to give them grip, then twist and pin back.
Tip: If you find that your hair is slipping as you braid and getting too loose, try putting some texturizing wax in first! I didn’t do this because I wanted the braid to start really loose and get tighter, but if you’re looking for a more even thickness then texturizing wax would be the way to go!
Hope you all like this hair style! Message me if you have any questions or recommendations!
Stay dry and have a great day! (:
Woohoo! Ten followers. (: haha
Hey everyone! The style I did today if one that I’ve been doing for a while. I guess I made it up? But it’s really too simple to take credit for. :p All it is is a “pancake” braid (rather than just a normal braid) on the side of my head that is clipped back with a flower! I do it all the time with both curly and straight hair and I think it looks nice without a lot of work.
Don’t know how to do a pancake braid? I’ll help you out!
1. Braid a thick section of hair normally (the section I used here was about three inches thick).
2. Hold it in your hand before putting the elastic on, and gently pull on each strand of hair in the braid to loosen them up. You’ll need to pull each one a few times because as you pull others, the ones toward the end of the braid will tighten up again.
3. Once you’ve got it as loose as you want it, end the braid with a small elastic.
And that’s it!
Hope you’ve enjoyed this very simple hair style and that you try it out really soon! As always if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
Have a great day. (:
Hey Guys! (:
The style for today is beach waves! The nice thing about this style is that it can cut your morning hair styling time in half, so it’s great for days that you know you want to sleep in. The reason the morning style time is so low is because the prep is done the night before.
So here’s what you do to achieve these waves:
1. Slightly dampen your hair with a spray bottle and apply your favorite mousse.
2. Part your hair however you normally do.
3. If you have thick hair or a lot of it, make a center part down the back making two sections and clip one out of the way (That’s what I did!). If you have thinner hair (or want your waves to be really slight), you can probably get away with just one french braid down the back of your head (I tried this and my waves were back to straight within a few hours). Make sure to braid as far down as you can so the texture stays constant throughout the length of the hair.
4. Secure the braids at the bottom and pull on individual sections of the braid if you don’t want the ends to be too crimped.
5. Go to sleep! (:
6. When you wake up, take out the braids and see how it looks! I have some bangs that get a little funky when braided so I twisted them back as you can see, but do what looks good on you!
Any questions? (:
Have a great day!
Happy Easter everyone. (:
Today I tried out a braid that I found on the website thebeautydepartment.com. I found this website one time while scrolling Tumblr at work and I can’t get enough of it. Check it out if you haven’t already!
So this braid is called “One Sided” on the website and I think it’s a really nice look. It’s a great “on the go” hairstyle if you don’t have a lot of time but don’t want to just wear your hair down. It took me about two or three minutes to complete, and all I needed was one small elastic. While I do think this is a pretty simple hairstyle to execute, I do have one small piece of advice: keep it loose. I tried it once and had to take it out because I was pulling the hair too tightly and the braid turned over on itself. Not pretty. :p
But anyway, hope you all like it and find it as easy to complete as I did! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
Have a wonderful day!
Hey! I’m Valerie, and I’m not embarrassed to say that I spend a majority of my free time watching hair tutorials. But like a lot of people who watch these videos, I feel like I never get the style exactly right, it falls out within minutes, I can’t do it all together, or it’s just too time consuming to feasibly do for everyday wear. So I decided to start a blog where I would try out different hair styles I find online (and show you some I already know and love) and see how do- able they really are. I hope to give some advice and let you all know how to best complete a hairstyle with minimal frustration because, trust me, I’ve been there. (:
So! Let’s get started!
I’ve been seeing the waterfall braid a lot lately, both on Tumblr and on other websites I often find myself browsing. I think it’s awesome because it’s really pretty, has a nice styled yet effortless look to it, and you can wear it a variety of ways. I started practicing this braid as a way to pull back my bangs on one side of my face, and after a bit of practice I decided I was ready to extend it a little further. So this is what I came up with! When I do it again I think I’m going to try to keep it a little tighter, especially at the end where there’s a bit of a bump, and slope it further down rather than keeping it straight across. But overall I like this hairstyle! It took me about five minutes for the braid itself (and about twenty minutes to take the picture -___-) and the curls were done yesterday with a curling wand.
How do you like it? Would you try it on yourself? Any questions? (:
