workin with THICK hair
🌸 I have thick blonde hair that is made courser by the fact that it is very processed and chemically damaged 🌸 my hair has volume on its own, and it weighs a significant amount. Keeping it up too long results and headaches and a bad pulling sensation. 🌸 My go to hairstyle is a bun at the nape of my neck secured with a scrunchie. keeping my hair centered in weight really plays a role in what hairstyles I choose 🌸 for workouts, I do a high ponytail or a triple button. I try to balance it so I don’t get any pulling sensations

✨Fav Braided Hairstyle! ✨
My hair is straight and super thin. If you want to hear more backstory to my hair go check out the previous post on Cute Effortless Hairstyle! I promise it’s super easy😉. So braids...we all know how to do the regular 3 strand down braid so I decided not to post about that. However not everyone knows how to do a waterfall braid (promise it’s easy too). I have a sister but she never let me touch a single strand of her hair so I had to test things out on my own hair since I was small. Soooo I don’t know many braids. I do know how to do the waterfall braid though. And I feel like it looks so nice on long hair. It’s like a cascading waterfall and it’s super pretty🥺! Too bad I chopped off a long portion of my hair so here’s what I have😬 1. Start off with a chunk of your hair in the front and split it into two. 2. Twist the twist the purple and the blue parts once (doesn’t matter which ones on top) 3. Without letting go of these two strands, grab another section of hair to the side of the two strands. Make sure it’s the same amount as the blue and purple sections. 4. Overlap the red in between the blue and purple twist 5. Twist the bottom strand, in my case, the purple with the blue, leaving the red in the center falling down. 6. Repeat! ♻️ Kinda complicated in words but trust me just try it out and it’ll be great! Takes some practice but I’m sure you’ll get it afterwards! Do you know how to make waterfall braids? If not try it out and tell me how it goes! 🤗
My favorite cute (and easy!) hairstyle
Two things about me: one, I am very low maintenance when it comes to doing my hair. Two, I love anything and everything vintage, especially when it comes to clothes and accessories. Thus I love using a vintage hair scarf like this to accessorize! This makes such a statement and adds so much to just a standard ponytail. My hair is naturally wavy and pretty thick, though it tends to lack volume at the roots. This style works best for longer hair (though there are plenty of other ways to wear head scarves even if you have short hair!) What you’ll need: a hair elastic a lightweight scarf, preferably a rectangular one (not square) made of lightweight material like silk. This one is silk and measures 18” long and 12” wide. dry shampoo or volumizing spray First, use some dry shampoo or volumizing spray to add volume to your roots. I absolutely adore the SACHAJUAN - Dark Volume Powder . It adds volume and texture to my roots like I didn’t even know was possible—way more than other products or dry shampoos I’ve tried in the past. It’s pricey, but a little goes a long way and since I don’t do my hair super often, this can should last me a long time. Next, use the hair elastic to pull your hair into a high ponytail. Last, tie the scarf around the base of your ponytail, and there you have it! This is such a quick way to add some vintage flair to any outfit.
SACHAJUAN-Dark Volume Powder
A quick braid to juje up my hair on a busy day!
Hair type: curly/frizzy/kinky/3C I don’t braid my hair often as a hairstyle that I rock on a day to day basis; however, when I’m busy and running around all day but still want to juje up my hairstyle I throw in a braid at the front of my hair just to feel like I’m having some fun with my hair 😊 1. Separate the bang part of my hair 2. Start braiding it 3. Throw my hair in a relatively loose ponytail to preserve a little “fun”
❓Spiral Hair Ties Worth the Hype❓
❓I'm pretty sure you have seen these spiral hair ties floating around here and there🤔. These things always looked funny to me and I saw them more like keychains people used to use. I saw these cute heart 💕shaped pastel colored ones on sale at Ann Taylor and was like why not? So I impulsively bought them and tested them out. ❓These claim to not leave any kinks or creases in your hair like what regular hair ties do. Being how I am, I was super skeptical when I tried it out the first time🤔. I have naturally thin straight hair so hair ties don't really like to grasp onto my hair. Hair ties usually fall out pretty easily if they are not brand new and tight. ❓I started off by washing my hair and letting it air dry before I went to bed. I put my hair up in a ponytail with one of the spiral hair ties and went to bed for about 8 hours and took the hair tie off when I woke up. ‼️I was SO SURPRISED😳. There was little to no crease in my hair and my hair basically looked the same! Except being slightly messy from sleeping, my hair pretty much stayed the same! 🤭 ‼️Therefore, I would highly recommend trying these spiral hair ties if you are someone who ties their hair up for short periods of time outside and lets it down often. I don't know if you noticed but the pink one that I tried out did become bigger after one use. I did hear that if it gets stretched you can leave it out under the sun ☀️ or put it in hot water and it'll scrunch back up? Not sure if that is true yet. I will be testing that out. Another thing is I feel like this hair tie grips onto my hair fairly well since the hair strands gets "stuck" in between the coils. I did notice some shorter hairs slipped out after I woke up from sleeping but I feel like the hair tie did pretty good considering I slept in it for 8 hours. 🛏 ‼️Go try one out!
Cute Everyday Bun for Long Hair
My hair type is thick and super long as you can see! I’ve spent so long trying to figure out how to do a high bun on my hair but this method works for me. The great thing is all you need is a hair tie! ✨ Tools Necessary: Hair tie (1-2 depending on hair thickness) Steps: 1. Gather hair into high pony 2. Smooth flyaways with hands 3. Begin to tightly twist hair 4. Wrap the twisted hair around itself 5. Secure with 1-2 hair elastics 6. Pull out pieces for a more effortless look I know this is super easy but I’ve tried a countless number of different bun techniques so I hope this one works for you too!
My Go-To “Cute” Hairstyle - Add a Headband!
Want to elevate your look from basic to cute? Only have a minute or less? Add a headband! Headbands are the perfect way to accessorize and add a bit of your personal style to your look. Headbands are widely available and, generally speaking, affordable. I haven’t purchased any in a while, but my go-to places to purchase headbands are Amazon, Forever 21, and Target. I *think* the one I’m featuring in these photos is from Forever 21 (it’s a few years old). It’s burgundy, has a velvet texture, and has a knot at the top. Burgundy velvet is my JAM. I have a burgundy shirt, bodysuit, scrunchies, etc. anywayssssss.... What you’ll need: A headband and a ponytail holder Steps: 1. Pick a cute headband. Match to your outfit, go with something bold, or whatever speaks to you. 2. Gather all of your hair into a ponytail. Mine between medium and high on my head. This look would work with any kind of ponytail height. 3. Use your preferred type of ponytail holder (elastic, coil, scrunchie, etc.). 4. Rock your day! About my hair: thiiiiick, wavy/curly, frizzy My natural, same-day washed hair is shown in the before photos. Try this style with curls, waves, or straight hair for different effects!
