In homage to the 40s rolled curl look I decided to create this three twist ponytail updo. It's a bit softer than the more structured rolled curls of the past, with more volume. This is how I did it. Step 1) Brushed and ready to go. Step 2) Pull up the middle section of hair on top of your head. Back comb at its base.
We love the look of fishtail braids! This trend is incredibly easy to style, even on your own hair. Kinsey and I photographed the steps so you can try it out for yourself... Here's how to style a fishtail braid... 1. Part your hair into two even sections. 2.
First, a little back story: I was on Pinterest (I know, big surprise) awhile back and Ms. Ez from Creature Comforts pinned a fun messy hair-do , and mentioned she needed to learn how to do it. So I piped in that I should show her how. I have been wanting to do a hair tutorial for ages now, so this was the perfect reason to get it done. I was a hairstylist in my first life, and I am not too shy to say I was a pretty good one – I can’t say that about everything, so I will take it where I can ;). So here it is, my first hair tutorial, wahoo!
all photos: Kristin Ess + thebeautydepartment.com post designed by kristin ess Lots of emails this week asking for a tutorial on Lauren’s temporary bright colors. Here I’ve replicated the process for you in 7 steps on an extension. While I never recommend bleaching out the ends of your hair at home, if you want to do the fun colors yourself, maybe get the tips bleached out by a pro + then play with the temporary colors on your own. The best things about this color– you’re able to hide it in a bun for work if you need to, AND you’re only doing a couple of inches on the bottom so it won’t kill you to cut it off if you get over it quickly. TOOLS : highlighting comb, clips, foils, color brush, hair bleach with the appropriate volume ( always seek a professional when using bleach), light pink color, dark pink color, light blue, dark blue, clear gloss.
I know I said I would post this hair tutorial yesterday, but obviously I'm a no good liar because today is not yesterday, it's today. This hairstyle is basically the same thing as milkmaid braids, only modified to up the volume and lessen the big part in the back. Pigtails or regular milkmaid braids make me look like I'm balding, as I have a wicked scar in the back of my head. I would recommend doing this in a mirror and checking the back to make sure it's all neat and tidy as you go, because I did not and it's a little (or a lot) messy in the back. I redid it before heading out and it looked much better, so make sure you use a mirror! For full instructions, keep reading after the jump.
...love Maegan: * Partial French Braid & Cascading Hair Tutorial *also known as the "Waterfall Braid" Fashion+Home+LifestyleI'm not the originator of this hair style but I've gotten so many requests for it, I thought I'd give it a go for you. I don't know what it's called either so I haven't researched it and/or found any other tutorials for it ...thus, this is my version of it, and I've dubbed it the Partial French Braid w/ Cascading Hair. The photos I've seen online show the braid a little more straight across the back of the head and mine sort of braids at an angle, similar to my side/low french braid up-do .
I wore a more relaxed version of this hair style in an outfit post in June of 2009 but for reasons unbeknownst to me, I never did a tutorial for it. Recently though, a few of my lovely readers have asked for it ...so here it is. Enjoy
Lindi took these photos of her newly discovered pretty hairstyle, and I immediately said, 'We have to put this on the blog!' So, here's Lindi, explaining how to do this sweet and easy hairstyle yourself. I have been looking for an alternative to the ponytail for a while. When it comes to managing dirty hair on those mornings I don't want to immediately hop into the shower, I still want to look presentable if someone stops by. This style is really easy and works best with slightly texturized hair.
So the long awaited post is here! Time to “Do it Yourself!” No need to pay the steep prices for getting feather extensions in. Feather extensions can be washed curled and flat ironed.
If you follow me on Instagram you already know about this because I shared it there see photos below but the other night I slept on twisted buns to get these BIG CURLS just to switch it up a little which the husband LOVES. In fact he said "You know, you could do that MORE OFTEN if you wanted to" . Big curls are a BIG hit around here ;)
As a single girl, I look to Valentine's Day this year for a release of "cheesy" energy. Sometimes you just want to be a dork. So... what better way to celebrate than by getting all dressed up in the holiday's signature colors! Here you will find ways that Casey and I have incorporated the good ole red and pink into our routines! We have separated everything into one of two categories- subtle or extreme.
Ideas, ladies; ideas. This season’s down ‘do is all about movement – and what could be more in-motion than this covetable blow-dry style? Similar to The Classic, it’s all about adding a fresher feel to the hair with a ton more bounce. Created by Luke Hersheson.
