ChickAdvisor How To: Kate Middleton Updo Today I had a bride who wanted her hair in an updo like Kate Middleton's. I've never done this before, but I thought I'd create a step-by-step for the updo while I was doing it. Let me know what you think! 1. Curl all of the hair loosely with a flat iron or curling iron. 2. 3. 5. 7. 8. Amlul 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.

tobi :: Online Fashion Boutique 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! 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. (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!! If you want to dress it up a little, you can do a braided headband look! Find a spot on the opposite side of your head and pin it so that it blends in naturally with the rest of your hairstyle. Well, that's it!

Calico skies: DIY I love just about anything with fringe or tassels, it's just such a fun texture, and it shakes when you move! I've been seeing different versions of this idea online, so I decided to give it a try myself. Here's how I made my fringe necklace. Here's what you'll need: Fringe, you can buy it by the yard in different colors and lengths. All this only cost me 14 bucks! You want to have three strips of fringe that are three different lengths. At first I tried pinning the three strips of fringe together, but this material is just so tricky to deal with, and it unravels VERY easily. Use small beads of glue to attach the three strips at the top seam. After the glue has dried, use a running stitch to sew the fringe together, I did two passes just to be secure. Hopefully your stitches come out tidier than mine. Sew a two inch strip of the velvet ribbon to cover and finish off the two ends of the fringe. Measure how long you want your necklace to be. Hope you had a lovely weekend!
