Fun Summer Hair in Minutes.

Fun Summer Hair in Minutes.
Happy Friday ladies! I just love this time of year- summer is just around the corner! Naturally, as weather changes so does my hairstyle. However, I am feeling like I need something new. My usual summer top knot, braids, or loose pony tail is just getting a bit…well, boring. So, this week while I was in the shower (the place where I have most of my revelations) I came up with a fast and easy hair style that can be dressed up for a weekend date-night or dressed down for a day at the beach. I also chose to wear a vintage inspired blue shirt with red tiny polk-a-dots that I thought would look great with this hair style. Let me know what you think about this hair creation! Did you catch that? So how about a short little video tutorial on how to achieve this look. Go here to watch it. Tips that make this hair style even better? -Day old hair is best (not washed) - Add more bobby pins at the end to make sure it is secure -Hairspray helps it stay in place or visit me at xo Related:  Hair and beauty

10 Beautiful And Easy Braided Hairstyles I’ve been growing my hair out for about three years. That’s three summers of saying, “is it long enough yet?” Long enough, of course, to actually do something adorable and exciting with it. It’s the reason a girl sets her sights on mermaid-length locks… that effortless-looking updo, those perfectly undone braids. And this year I think it’s finally there! The Tie-Back. The Downward Milkmaid. The Over-The-Shoulder. The Inverted Braid. The Fishtail. The Tuck. The Fringe-Braid. The Free-Style. The Full Crown. The Traditional Milkmaid. Braids are a fantastic accessory for spring because they’re not just pretty, they’re functional, too. Are you a gal who loves braids?

THE MODERN BRIDE photo: angela+ithyle/ post designed by kristin ess I’ve been getting tons of emails about hair for the do-it-yourself bride. We’ll start off with this super simple chignon and work toward more intricate looks down the line. If you have curly or wavy hair, start by straightening your hair. Often, there is a rehearsal dinner the night before a wedding. TOOLS: 2 clear elastics, 5-10 large bobby pins, tail comb or teasing comb, firm holding hairspray and a hand mirror. TIP: I always advise looking in a second mirror between each step to check your balance. I made this particular photo tutorial printable with instructions next to the photos so it can be by your side on your wedding day. xxkristin Tags: beauty, bridal, bride, chignon, classic, clean, easy, folded, hair, hair do, hair styles, how to, kristin ess, lauren conrad, low bun, modern, quick, simple, the beauty department,, tutorial, wedding Related posts:

You’ll need: A MirrorEasy Off Oven CleanerFabric (enough to cover the frame and the back of the mirror)Mod PodgeA Staple Gun or other framing tool I went searching for a method to removing silvering and came across a great tutorial at Mitzi’s Collectibles.
