Fake It till You Make It!

Do you want to add a little extra "oomph" to your ponytail? 
Here's a simple DIY to get you going! 



 

 

  1. Divide hair in two to create one ponytail on top of your hair and one underneath
  2. Gather top half of hair into a ponytail, taking special care to neatly gather hair before wrapping it with a large hair tie
  3. Create a ponytail with the lower half of the hair and secure using a smaller hair tie
  4. "Foof" the upper ponytail so it conceals the lower ponytail.
  5. Now that's one superlong ponytail!

A twist on the classic bun - the Infinity Bun

Posted on June 11, 2014 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Sometimes the most simple, clean hairstyles are the most stunning. This infinity symbol shaped bun is no exception.

Here's an easy How-To to help you put this look together! 

1. Grab a fine tooth comb, various bobby pins and u-pins + a ponytail holder.


2. For this one we put the ponytail a little lower, but as you can see in the top photo on the girl with blonde hair, we put it a little higher. Your choice! Secure the elastic– you want it to be pretty tight. Don’t worry about fly aways, we’ll lock those down at the end.


3. You’re basically going to twist the hair into a “circle 8″ shape. Start by pulling it to the left and twisting upward {toward the top of your head} as you see her doing in photo 3.


4. Circle it around as if you’re going to make a regular bun and use large bobby pins to secure as you go. I like to put them in every inch or so. Should take about 2-3 large bobby pins to secure it on the one side.


5. Once you get to the middle add a couple small bobby pins there to make sure you’re not pulling the other side. You’re now going to be twisting the same direction, but you’ll start rolling it downward as you come around the curve {see photo 5}


6. Keep pinning as you go. Use smaller bobby pins as you get to the end. Personally, I find that you really only need the larger ones to secure the first side as it’s SO heavy.


7. Secure the tail end under the bun using another small pin.


8. Now go around and add any extra u-pins you need to lock it all in place.


9. Last, smooth using hairspray and a fine tooth comb.


Keep this one simple. Just think about making a “circle 8″ and you'll get it! Check the balance of your infinity bun in the mirror when you’re done. The great news is, this bun still looks really pretty if it starts to get messy!

Braids Away!

Posted on February 4, 2014 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Braids are a great way to mix up your hairstyle. They offer a look that is easy to do and can be achieved in minutes.


Pro Tip: The trick to good braiding is to keep the tension on the strands evenly.

 

For those new to braiding, the biggest question is, how do you hold three strands with only two hands?

 

What you do is hold two of the strands in one hand and one strand in the other. As you braid, the extra strand is passed between the hands. It takes time to get good at it so don't get discouraged if your braids don't turn out perfect the first few tries. Enjoy!


Still waiting on your hair to grow out for that perfect pony? FAKE IT!!!

Sometimes we just want that extra "umph" in our pony tail. Here is a great way to lengthen your pony tail without much work!


 

Pro tip: Be sure to run your fingers through the finished look in order to blend the layers from the top and bottom pony tail.

Have you heard of Sombre yet?

Ombre has been popular for a couple of years now, but the hottest new trend is Sombre! Sombre is when the hair is a softer side of ombre.
