The Ultimate Faux Hawk March 20, 2014 Disclaimer: This hairstyle is for the bold, brave and ultra glamorous! It also takes a tad bit longer than most tutorials I have posted. If you’re up for the challenge, check out the steps below for the Ultimate Faux Hawk! Step 1: Curl your hair. Step 2: Divide your hair into three sections: The top section needs to be clipped up out of the way, the Middle section needs to be a sleek, tightly secured ponytail, and the bottom section needs to be a low ponytail. Steps 3 & 4: Once the bottom section is secured into an elastic, take your middle section and make sure it is tight and sleek on both sides (this is the part of the hairstyle that gives the necessary ‘faux hawk’ impression!). Step 5: Here is the fun part! Steps 6, 7, and 8: Do a once over and secure any loose pieces in place, then spray with hairspray! Voila! A Sweet & Simple Updo February 13, 2014 Step 1: Begin with your hair in either it’s natural texture, or curled.

Sea Salt Spray DIY A blissful day of summer for me is playing on the beach with sunkissed cheeks and wind-swept beach hair.

So, I wanted to come up with just the right recipe for my hair. I decided to do a little research and experimented a little to come up with my perfect mixture for a sea salt spray.

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.
