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!
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? (:
