Easy Beachy Wave Tip🏖
Today I want to share a few tips on how to make sexy bohemia wavy hair withs salon finish.parting your hair is something you do everyday. To start curling, begin with clean towel -dried hair. Apply a coin size of heat protection on the hair. Remember we discussed how important heat protection is. AVOID SCALP! It’s not just the chemicals that is not safe to touch the scalp. We are only applying on areas to prevent from heat damage. (Im assuming you won’t burn your scalp with iron hah) Then just use fingers to run product from root to end. You can use comb to apply it more evenly. Normally I like to start up with 180℃, I try not to go to maximum temperature to burn my hair. Then next step is to pull the hair half way up. Section is just gonna make your curling easier and a better finish look. Tip #1. Start with small portions. You want the hair get evenly heated and you don’t want to spend the whole day doing your hair. Normally a good practice is try to get the bottom half of the hair in maximum 8 portions Tip#2 Start off with the root with the iron, then twist it around the iron and slide it down (curl up) and works the way till the end slowly and smoothly. In this way you will get entire strand from the iron. remember to do it all the way to the end. No hooks girls. We want springy curls. Tip# 3 Let the curl set on your iron no more than 15 seconds and let it cool down. And don’t forget the root! Tip#4 Wait till you finish the whole curling process, pray with hair spray, and brush it out in the end. It might look too curly at the moment but no worries it will go back through out the day (just like when you curl your eyelashes) the final step is to keep the curl a little big longer and when you brush it out together, it kind of put everything together for a more natural finish.Schwarzkopf - Osis+ Freeze Pump Spray 200ml

How to get a Perfect Bun in under 5 min
You will need a comb, hairtie and hair spray (Use dry shampoo if your hair is oily, cause that what I do during workdays when i don’t have time to wash and style my hair) To start, normally i would smooth my hair out. If you have straight hair like me, I would recommend DO NOT USE A COMB unless you want a more polished sleek ballet dancer bun then that’s another case. If you have big hair or thick hair with big volume, you can use some water to smooth your hair off and go with a wide tooth comb. By using your hair to run through the hair, you get the a natural cozy bun. Moving on we gonna need a smoothing brush that you can get in any drugstore with fine bristles and working on both sides. You gonna comb your hair to the other side where you will be securing the hair and the backside of your hair up towards your hand. This process is to make sure that your hair is smooth back with no bumps. Finish up with a pony tail. Then twist the tail and wrap it around the base of the pony tail. You can start shaping your bun as you go during this process. Your hands should be holding the bun all the time to keep it in place. Last, secure the ends with another rubber band or bobby pin whichever you find easier. “TIP” if you don’t have long hair, don’t put if all the way through like a ponytail, instead, pulling the hair about half way through. Stop and twist the hair band and secure it. Use another hair band to secure the remaining hair along with the other half and secure it as a bun. tuck away any out of place strands back under the band, or use bobby pins (same to your hair color) to secure. “TIP” I like to pull some baby hair down around my face to make it more natural and “no so perfect” L'ORÉAL - Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold UV Hair Spray Finally finish it off with a hair spray. and Voila, here is your perfect bun.

Soft Romantic Curls
There’s probably multiple tutorials out there explaining the best ways to curl your hair. Whilst I can’t guarantee that this is the ultimate method to achieve curls – this is the way I’ve found to work best for me to achieve a soft romantic curl. Keep reading if you want to find out how I achieve the soft loose curl look (this looks great on all hair types!) First off always protect your hair with a heat protecting spray. One of my favourites for heat protection is the incredible milk 12 effects by milk shake. This product was actually recommended to me by my hairdresser – I love it because it’s super nourishing without weighing down my hair and has multiple benefits (it protects your hair against UV rays, controls frizz, detangles etc). It does have quite a strong sweet smell so if you’re not into that, I’d opt for something else! To curl my hair, I use the 1 inch classic curling wand by Nume – the thicker the wand the looser the curl. I find the 1 inch is perfect for a standard curl – anything bigger than this gives volume rather than curl, and anything smaller tends to give you a ringlet or tight curls. I start by sectioning my hair into two – one on the right side of the face, one on the left. The key is to curl in alternating directions for each strand – but you want to make sure that you’re wrapping your hair around the wand in an outward motion for pieces of hair close to yourr face. That way the curls should frame your face nicely and the rest of the curls should all be separated from each other since the curls are going in different directions. The result should be a soft loose romantic curl – finish with some hair spray to keep the curls in and you’re ready to go!
How I “Plop”/Air Dry My Wavy/Curly Hair w/ pics!
Do you have naturally curly or wavy hair? What about cults/waves that you've been taming with heat tools for years? Want to improve your curl/wave pattern over time? This is for you! About my hair: thick, long, some layers, curly/wavy,dry What you'll need: •100% cotton t-shirt •Leave-in conditioner •Curl cream, gel, mousse, etc (whatever you prefer) •Patience, because this takes a while! I've included a numbered pictorial so you can follow along, but please note that each numerical label isn't necessarily its own step. Some are just additional angles. This method is part of the “curl girl” method and is called “plopping ". "Plopping" with cotton gently removes moisture while reducing frizz and helping natural patterns look more defined. Steps: 1. Start with freshly washed hair. Squeeze your hair with your towel a few times until it's no longer dripping wet. No more towel after this. 2. Scrunch hair with your cotton t-shirt for about 15-20 seconds. 3. Use your fingers to apply a leave-in conditioner, or if your leave-in is a spray, just spray it and finger comb through. 4. Scrunch hair with t-shirt again. Your hair should no longer be super wet. 5. Apply your preferred curl or wave product and make sure to disperse throughout your hair starting with your ends. 6. Use your hands to scrunch. Flip head upside down and continue to scrunch. 7. Lay your t-shirt on a flat, clean surface (I use my bed). The neck should face towards you. 8. Gather all of your hair with your head up aside down as if making a ponytail and place in the center of the t-shirt. 9. Fold the bottom portion of the t-shirt onto itself, then take that folded section up over your hair towards your neck. Your forehead should be touching the neck of the t-shirt. 10. Use 1 hand to hold the shirt in place while taking each sleeve and tying them together. You will need to switch your hands during this step. The tie should sit low on your head. 11. Leave hair in shirt 20-30 min (depending on hair thickness). 12. Take hair out of shirt, flip over, part with fingers or comb (if desired, but don't comb anything else!!), and air dry. My hair takes about 3-4 hours to fully dry post-"plop". If you want to use a hair oil, use it before wrapping your hair. Products I used: KRISTIN ESS - Ultra Hydrating Curl Leave-In Cream and IGK - Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel . There are good YouTube videos out there to learn more if you are wanting to learn more about this method!

My Go-To Hairstyle!
I always feel my best when my hair looks it’s best haha! For me my best looking hair is a messy but glam, perfectly imperfect disheveled styling. I love this look because it’s sexy and easy to achieve and frames the face well. This effortless looking style perfectly accompanies my personal style and always gets me compliments. I have really fine hair so this gives it the illusion of volume and density. I find this look takes me about 15 to 20 min to create. It’s perfect for a Date with a hottie or a night out. Here’s how I get my look! 1. After I’ve allowed my hair to air dry after a shower I section it off using clips. I take the top portion of my hair at the crown and lift it away to reveal the lower layers. 2. I then go in using my Bio Ionic Graphine MX curing wand, curing pieces of hair towards my face and away from it starting from the back of the head to the front, rotating the barrel clockwise for one piece then counterclockwise for another, except the pieces that frame my face which I curl away from my face. Using this technique gives my hair a natural looking curl. I love this wand because it’s less damaging to my hair and it has a long barrel which speeds up the process. 3. After Curling my hair completely I will set the style using the iconic L’oreal Elnett extra strong hold hairspray. This hairspray helps hold the curl in my pin straight hair. This is the hairspray that’s been used on me backstage at shows my entire career and it really works, it’s a fashion week essential! 4. Taking my Tangle Teaser hair brush I then brush out the curls to give my hair a more wavy texture. This brush is very gentile on my fine hair, I also love that you can use this brush on wet and dry hair so it’s efficient. 5. For extra shine, moisture, and a beautiful scent I apply the Balmain Hair Couture Silk Mist all over my head. I’ve been using this product literally since it first came out and it really gives my hair a luxurious feel. It has Argan oil in it which nourishes dryness. I recommend this product to anyone who needs moisture, scent, and shine all in one product! Just don’t spray too much or your hair will look greasy. 6. I finish the style with a few sprays of the Oribe Dry Texturizing spray. This amazing smelling spray gives me a boost of volume and makes my hair look perfectly tussled! It’s not quite a dry shampoo and not quite a typical texture spray, it’s kinda a hybrid of the two. This Is another product I discovered backstage at shoots and shows, and has stayed on my beauty counter for years. If you want to treat yourself to something bougie this is the finishing spray for you!

My hair in the photo is very thick and has a deep wavy texture. To achieve this look I used: ⭐️ Miss Jessie's - Curly Meringue This is a great product for wavy and curly hair. It conditions my hair and makes it easier to comb through. It also adds shine and removes any frizz. It helps any styles on my curly/wavy hair last longer. For this style I either use this product or Miss Jessie's - Pillow Soft Curls which essentially does the same thing but even better! ⭐️ jane carter solution - Shine on Curl Elixer is a hair oil that contains Aloe Vera, Argan oil and Macadamia oil. It adds shine to my hair and it also protects my hair from heat damage when I am styling with heat tools. This is great for people with dry curly hair. It will condition your hair and make it easier to brush out. ⭐️ Spray Bottle ⭐️ Wide Tooth Comb or Hair Brush ⭐️ 2 Hair ties Step by Step: 1. Fill your spray bottle up half way with water. Add a scoop of your hair cream and a little hair oil. Shake the bottle to combine. 2. Spray mixture into hair until damp (DO NOT SATURATE HAIR WITH MIXTURE)! 3. Use a wide tooth comb or brush to remove any knots from hair. I like to start from the ends 4. Part hair down the middle into 2 sections. 5. Flat twist hair outward, away from face. 6. Take twist and wrap in a bun 7. Repeat on other side 8. Let hair dry overnight and undo twist to reveal beach waves! #CherieCreator

Favourite Quick Boho Braided Hairstyle✨
This is a style I have loved to do for over 10 years now...I honestly feel like it never really goes out of style and it’s so simple (as long as you know how to French braid). It allows me to keep my hair out of my face while still keeping it down which is always a plus for me...I hate hair hanging in my face!! My hair is fine in texture and naturally blonde but is colour-treated (with bleach). Here’s the steps I take to get this cute style! 1️⃣ I started with day-old hair (this style looks the best when your hair has some “grit” to it) and did a slight side part. I then took a small section of hair near the front to start the braid. 2️⃣ This style actually uses a Dutch braid, which means the hair goes underneath as you cross the middle instead of over top. I start my braid out on that small piece, crossing each side under the middle strand one side at a time. 3️⃣ After I have the braid started, I add in a piece of hair to each side as I cross under until I like the size of the braid. 4️⃣ Once I get to the bottom, I hold the braid with one hand and with the other I go through and pull pieces out all the way up to make it look more loose and “boho”, I then secure the braid with a clear elastic. 5️⃣ Using a bobby pin, I pin the braid to my head just above my ear so that it’s secure (this is totally optional, you can leave it loose too!) 6️⃣ Last, I spritz in some salt spray for texture (I used the davines - This is a Sea Salt Spray ) and add a little oil to my ends to keep them hydrated (I used the gisou - Honey Infused Hair Oil ) Hope you enjoyed this super easy tutorial!!🤗

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.4 DAYS AGO
