Bye Bye Beehive: Braids Do you remember the adorable girl I talked about, named Emily, who sent me the email asking me to do the Holiday Updo? Welp, she's amazing because she sent me another Hey Kayli video and asked me to give it a go. Kayli had titled the video New Year's Eve Updo... but I think it's just more of a braided updo. I gave it a shot, and almost followed her directions to a T (but had to make adjustments because she does a lot of teasing and hairspraying). Would you like to know my version? I knew you would. Begin with brushed hair. So>> want to know something random? What a small world it is, huh? I hope you like it! PS>> PS>> I'm having a GIVEAWAY over at Aunie Sauce.

Braid As Usual Braid your strands regularly three times, beginning from the right strand. Drop the Strand This is where it gets tricky.

Ten Ways to Dress Up a Ponytail Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to spend a lot of time on my hair. But at the same time, I don't want to look like a homeless hairdresser when I go to work, so I try to make my ponytails as fancy as possible. Here are ten easy ways I like to dress up my ponytail: 1. -Put your hair in a ponytail like you normally would. 2. -Put your hair in a ponytail like you normally would. 3. 5. 6. -Flat iron your hair and apply smoothing serum for a more polished look. -Part your hair to one side. 7. -Part your hair to one side. 8. 9. Recommended Products: page 4 To some of you super smarties out there, this may be a really obvious travel tip, but the first time I learned this trick I was like “whaaaat?”. (Yah, that’s how I talk.) I used to resort to just throwing my bottles of shampoo + conditioner in a gallon ziplock and then into my suitcase. Constantly bummed when I got to my destination to see that ziplock full of shampoo. The lid would pop open almost every time, I assume due to altitude pressure. And if you’re a hair colorist, like me, traveling with color it can be extra sad. Use basic kitchen cling wrap. Voila! Hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day! Shampoo + condition in the shower, then detangle your hair as usual. Let us know if you try blowdrying with a twist! A long time ago, we did a post called Brush Class, remember?

Hope you all have a nice Valentine’s Day!
How To Style Maiden Braids 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. Steps 7-8: Pull the rest of the hair into a ponytail and pin it into a cute messy bun. Step 9: Add final pins and spray.

...love Maegan : Fashion, DIY, Home, Lifestyle: Partial French Braid with Cascading Hair ~ Tutorialalso known as the "Waterfall Braid" ~ Los Angeles I’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’m sure this is 100% easier to do on someone else’s hair than your own but it goes pretty quickly once you get the hang of it …I mean, it’s my shortest hair video tutorial to date. That’s gotta mean something, right Enjoy. Note: Apologies in advance for the yelling of “NOOOO” towards the end, where I momentarily fear I’m going to lose my entire braid and have to start over.
