Hair Ideas for Prom - Prom Hair Tips. D I Y on we heart it / visual bookmark #19747021. It's just love on we heart it / visual bookmark #8843333. PIN IT UP, GIRL. Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going!


This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night. I made this a printable tutorial, so all of the steps are next to the photos. Tools you’ll need: curling iron (to prep the hair with waves), sectioning clips, teasing comb or brush, clear elastic rubber band, bobby pins, light to medium holding hairspray (to mist over at the end).

A Beautiful Mess: HAIR + MAKEUP. Whenever I make a mental list of things that I am thankful for, once I get past all the obvious top favorites like family and friends, I always give false lashes a grateful shout-out.

A Beautiful Mess: HAIR + MAKEUP

Now, I realize that false lashes are not a big deal to everyone, but I was given a pretty skimpy set of lashes to work with, so I love being able to throw on a pair of falsies for a special night. Everyone has something that gives them an extra boost of confidence (maybe a favorite outfit, super high shoes, or a fresh manicure) and lashes are it for me. I've been playing around with lashes for a few years now, and here's a few thoughts to consider if you are thinking about getting into the lashes game: What kind of lashes should I get? Good question! Natural Lashes: You can see from comparing these lashes with others that they are much more delicate looking.

Full Lashes: These lashes are obviously much thicker than the natural lashes. What glue should I use? What if I have sensitive eyes? Sea of Shoes: HAIR HOW-TO. I am sometimes asked how I style my hair, and while my method is far from perfect, I thought I'd show you how!

Sea of Shoes: HAIR HOW-TO

My hair is pretty straight and fine naturally and I always let it air dry. Since I go about three days between washes, I like to curl it on the first day and let it mellow out into some nice waves over the next two. Let's get started! If your hair doesn't hold curl very well then you may want to put a palmful of curling mousse in it when it is halfway dry. First I comb out all of the tangles and apply a liberal amount CHI Iron Guard Protection Spray to prep my hair. (though I want to upgrade to one of the fancy new ones from Sultra soon!) When I'm done curling the bottom section, I mist it with Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode and comb through the curl with my fingers. Ahh!! Triple Max Tons: EASY HOLIDAY HAIR.
