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 In 2009 I did a quick video demonstrating how I twist my hair into the little buns whilst singing to Lady Gaga – but I only did a photo tutorial of how to get the finished look. So the other morning before I left for the gallery I filmed it for you and hopefully answered all the questions I’ve gotten about this easy little tutorial. ...love Maegan: No Heat SJP BIG CURLS w/ Twisted Buns ...also known as Bantu Knots Fashion+Home+Lifestyle

How to- Pin Curls |

Pin curls are one of the easiest most fuss free ways to get curls and they are a personal favorite of mine. They take very little time to put in and can be styled in many different ways. There have already been a whole lot of tutorials on the subject, Super Kawaii Mama did a great pin curl video here: http://www.superkawaiimama.com.au/hair-parlour/perfect-pin-curls/but after a lot of requests I thought it was about time I did one too ^_^ *edit* I have added a video which includes me taking them out at the bottom too. What you will need for this particular pin curls tutorial:

She created a beautiful, textured, easy hairstyle that will work with almost any hair type.

"If you want to gather honey, don't kick over the beehive."~ Dale Carnegie We all have hair -- some more, some less. (Some of us even have it where we don't want it!)
Last month I did a makeover story with Kelsie and had many requests for a maiden braid tutorial. Yesterday she came in and we photographed these simple step by steps. Kelsie has extremely long and thick hair, but anyone with shoulder length or longer can do these braids (see my photo below for an example). Steps 1-2: Braid two strands on each side of a center part. Steps 3-5: Wrap braids around the crown of your head and pin in place with one pin each. Step 6: Arrange braids so that they cover the front of your head like a headband.

How To Style Maiden Braids

Over the weekend I recieved an email about how to get the look of the metallic hairpieces used at the Carolina Herrera Spring 2010 RTW show (original post ). Since the pieces were custom made for the show the only way to duplicate the look is to create your own, but luckily that's not too hard. These are the supplies that I used for this prodject. Headband comb (a headband with teeth) - $4 from targetFire Line or another durable thread - $12Beading needles - $4Needle threader - not necessary but very helpfulTape measureCraft glue - optionalMetallic round beads - one package should be enoughMetallic bugle beads - the amount needed will depend on your hair length and the number of threads you want to make. I paid $10.5 for 240" (enough to make about 20 strands for my hair length)Scissors (not pictured) Carolina Herrera Inspired DIY Hairpiece
