hair tutorials After many requests, I finally made a tutorial on how to tie a simple head scarf. It's really, really easy. I did this without looking in the mirror, so that should tell you how easy it is. Let's get started! Start with a large, square scarf. I like my vintage silk scarves because they're soft and not bulky. Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle. Fold the corner down to about the middle, and then fold over again (but not all the way to the edge, because you want it to be a little thicker). Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the wrong side of the scarf (the part where you can see the folds) is against your head. Tie it in a loose knot at the front. Tuck the ends behind/underneath the scarf. Done!

Cute Indie Clothing & Unique Clothes ...love Maegan: Messy Rope Braids and Low Bun Hair Tutorial... - StumbleUpon These little rope braids are a fun way to add a little style with your own hair, creating a sort-of headband of sorts. Your hair doesn’t need to be extremely long, but you do need some length to cover the top of your head with. If you have layers, you could instead create a tiny French Braid where the hair is shorter and closer to your head, if that makes sense. But it’s a fun and cute braided hair style that’s just a little different. I originally wore this style last Summer with two slightly larger braids Watch and Enjoy… * Notes: Instead of one large bun, create two or three little buns at base of your head OR swap the bun for a clean pony tail. Wear it Up… Wear it Down… * Just bobby pin them in place or use a pretty barrette * Click Here for my DIY Tassel Earrings shown above * Have Fun! Find all my Hair Tutorials here!

Bad news for stomach sleepers. The average head weighs 7 to 8 pounds—that’s a lot of pressure to be putting on your face night after night. If you just can’t sleep on your back, try sleeping on your side with a body pillow. For those of you who are fortunate enough to be back-sleepers, try throwing an extra pillow under your head. 2. Long gone are the days of sitting around waiting for sticky strips to whiten your teeth. 3. What better time to sleep with comfy socks than winter? If you’re a deep sleeper, you can also apply lotion to your hands and wear gloves while you sleep. 4. Wearing Frownies—which you would never wear in public—while you sleep helps prevent lines and wrinkles around the eye and mouth areas. 5. Piling hair on to the top of your head with a soft hair tie (scrunchie, anyone?) 6. 7. 8. 9. You heard us. 10.
