Hopefully most of you have been practicing with Lauren’s help in this video, but for those of you who just can’t make friends with the curling iron clamp, this project is all yours.

We women adore fashion and style. Fashion comes in clothes, shoes, makeup, fancy accessories, styles the way we carry things and hairstyles. We enjoy dressing up, getting ready and styling our hair. Hair is the part of fashion and beauty and Hair-styling is an art, to carry your hair according to your style statement and your physical appearance is a really tough job. Working girls got a small amount of time for their hairdos and hair-styling in their daily routine. Here are 100 different and amazing hairstyles.
No Heat SJP BIG CURLS w/ Twisted Buns ...also known as Bantu Knots
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. Enjoy…

How To Use A Sock To Get Beautiful Curly Hair Without Heat

How To Make Hairspray
I was so excited to share this recipe for homemade hairspray that I had a hard time conducting an adequate test phase! I’m happy to report that after using it every day for over a month, I’ve been thrilled with the results. (UPDATE: I’ve been using this formula for over two years now, and won’t ever go back to store-bought!) Here’s how and why I make my own hairspray. My Issues with Commercial Hairspray Nowadays I have very thick, curly, long(ish) hair and need to use a generous amount of hairspray no matter how I style it.
Braid Wrapped Ponytail
This is another version of the French Braid into a Braided Ponytail that I posted yesterday. It’s basically just the complete opposite (you’ve got 2 braids to wrap instead of one – and minus the French!) Once again, this isn’t anything too difficult and you can change it up by making rope braids, or uneven 3 strand braids to start with & you’ll also get a very pretty result. I didn’t take step-by-step pictures, as this is fairly self-explanatory.
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.

It’s amazing how a little flurry of snow or a tiny bit of drizzling rain can completely ruin your good hair day. We’re going to kick off a list of tips and tricks for minimizing frizz in the winter and then we want you guys to submit your own in the comment section below. We may be the “experts”, but you guys teach us new things every day and sharing helpful tips is what TBD is all about.
