...love Maegan: Messy Rope Braids and Low Bun Hair Tutorial Fashion+Home+Lifestyle Blog - StumbleUpon
These little rope braids are a fun way to add a little style with your own hair, creating a sort-of headband of sorts. Your hair doesn’t need to be extremely long, but you do need some length to cover the top of your head with. If you have layers, you could instead create a tiny French Braid where the hair is shorter and closer to your head, if that makes sense. But it’s a fun and cute braided hair style that’s just a little different. I originally wore this style last Summer with two slightly larger braids Watch and Enjoy… * Notes: Instead of one large bun, create two or three little buns at base of your head OR swap the bun for a clean pony tail. Wear it Up… Wear it Down… * Just bobby pin them in place or use a pretty barrette * Click Here for my DIY Tassel Earrings shown above * Have Fun! Find all my Hair Tutorials here!

A Beautiful Mess I love using cloth napkins to dress up our dinner table, and through the years I've grown even more fond of their sustainability and cost effectiveness. Though, I'm not sure how cost effective it is if you keep buying more and more cloth napkins each year! This holiday season I thought it would be fun to look at how I could dress up the napkins I already own to give them an extra festive vibe. Check out three simple ways you can give new life to your table linens. And hey! Two of them are even no sew! Ten Amazing Things You Can Do With Coconut Oil - Health If you've read No More Dirty Looks, or our blog, you know my co-author Alexandra and I are fond of oils, and coconut oil in particular because it’s an amazing and cost-saving multitasker that has lots of qualities to recommend it. It’s a rich moisturizer, it’s cheap, it’s versatile, it’s antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial, has a decent amount of antioxidants, and it smells like baked goods. What’s not to love?

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).

PIN IT UP, GIRL Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night.

Renaissance Beauty Hair Style, Romantic Feminine Hairstyle Ideas I love romantic, feminine hairstyles from times past, and this simple Renaissance hair style tutorial is super pretty. It’s a beautiful braided updo using a reverse S braid technique, and can make any woman with a few moments to spare into a Renaissance beauty. You need to be able to make a french braid or reverse french braid to achieve this pretty, feminine hairstyle. Here is our braided updo hair tutorial in both pictures, and explained underneath as well…have a great hair day! What I really love about this romantic hair idea is that if you don’t have time to wash your hair but still just want it to look pretty and feminine, this is a great style until you have time to give yourself a proper hair wash and blowout. (follow the pictures like a backwards S- just like the braid!)
