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

The Freckled Fox : Hair Tutorial: The Bouffant Bun Here we are and its Tuesday!! Not only that, but its the second-to-last day of the month, and then its August! Okay what's with all the exclamation points.. Anyways, I have another hair tutorial for you today, and this is one that I've been doing a lot lately! I've worn it out on hot dates and just to run errands with my hoard of children, and no matter where I go people compliment me:) So! Usually I don't stick to just one type of hairstyle for weeks in a row, but one type I've stuck to this summer has been buns! What I love most about this style as I said before is that its effortless enough to wear to a ball game and then on the other hand its so chic and elegant! Step 1: start with slightly dirty hair for grip:) put a finger by your ear and draw a straight vertical line from one ear to the other, sectioning off the front and cliping it up for later. Step 3: pulling the front of your hair down, split it in half, then split both halves in half so you're left with four quarters.

How to Grow Your Hair - hiphopsideproject When I was little, maybe 5 years old, my mum took me to the hair dressers and told them to give me what can only be described as a boy haircut. I’ve been scarred ever since. So I’ve been trying to grow my hair long for years now, I usually wuss out and end up getting a big chunk chopped off (never to the extent of the boy haircut that was surreptitiously thrust upon me!). This time I’m determined to have shiny mermaid length hair!! Over the past 6 or so months I think I’ve added about 5-6inches of hair, and that’s with a few trims in between. For me that’s a good growth rate, I reckon it was about 3inches every 6 months before! Use a good shampoo/conditioner to keep your hair in tip-top condition. How you wash your hair is also important. Use shampoo on the roots only and give yourself a root massage as you apply it to stimulate hair follicles, washing it out through the rest of your hair will clean that part without drying the ends. Lay off the heat styling.

Don’t hide your eyes with what I am about to reveal to you… this is real. Yes, these are how horrible my lips were getting. The solution? So here is an at home remedy to exfoliate and condition your smackers with ingredients you have around the house. Grab some coconut oil, brown sugar, and honey. Combine 1 tsp. of each.

Note: I found these little bead containers work perfect for keeping my scrub in the fridge. And what did I use? xo
