My go-to French braid in a bun!

avatar
relpixela
My hair is a little crazy! Having dry, thick, wild curls is an adventure in itself, but having those key styles to dress up a bun is so important! Today I’m sharing my go-to hairstyle when my hair is almost ready to be washed (I can only wash my hair once a week—curly girl problems) and I want it to be out of my face for work. I call it an easy French braid in a bun! Here are the easy steps to get this cute style yourself: 1. Brush your hair! Especially if you’re curly like me—it will ruin your curls for that wash cycle but since we’re at the end anyway it doesn’t really matter. By brushing our your hair it is less likely to tangle. 2. Something I like to do to add volume and texture is a styling powder. Many brands make them, but today I’m using the Redken Dry Shampoo Powder REDKEN - Dry Shampoo Powder 02 With Charcoal
it’s basically a charcoal powder to soak up excess oil in your hair. Lasts forever! At $22 for 2oz it had lasted me over 6 months! My only complaint is the dispenser, I wish it was like briogeo’s, which is a aerosol-free sprayer. 3. Part your hair like your normally do, then tie up one side while you work on the other side. 4. Begin your French braid at the front of your part. You can make the braid as tight or loose as you’d like! 5. Make sure you continue along the side of your head, not the top. 6. Secure your first braid with Bobby pins and/or tie it up! 7. Repeat this on the other side. 8. Remove all of your temporary Bobby pins, grab all of your hair and put it in your usual bun. I keep mine lower on my head depending on the day. 9. Secure any stray hair or bumps with Bobby pins and you’re ready to go! I work part time at a print shop where it’s crucial that my hair is up and out of my face so I can operate heavy machinery. This is a cute style I wear instead of a boring bun 🤪 What are your favorite hair styles for your job(s)?

Powder vs Aerosol Dry Shampoo
Powder vs aerosol dry shampoo. What’s the difference?! Y’all dry shampoo is having a MOMENT in the beauty industry! From dollar cheap to high end, you’ll find dry shampoo under almost every sink these days! And for good reason- damaged hair is a thing of the past! Dry shampoo can help extend your style and eliminate using so many heat tools on your precious locks. Now which dry shampoo should you choose? There are several types but the two most offered are aerosol and powder. Aerosol is a spray dry shampoo that will often have a bit more power than its powder counterpart. It will almost always also contain alcohol, which can help dry out scalp oils and leave your hair feeling cleaner. I find that the aerosol spray has a large area of coverage, yet it’s not as precise as a powder. If you like to use dry shampoo all over your head, aerosol will certainly provide the coverage! Powder dry shampoo will be either tapped into your roots, or applied with a bottle that “poofs”. Although it doesn’t have the wide coverage that spray does, you can concentrate the powder on smaller areas of your head if you have problem areas! In addition, if you hair is fine, powder could be a great option due to having fewer ingredients. It will be lighter weight in the hair and not weigh it down as much. So... what’s the gist? I truly believe it’s PERSONAL PREFERENCE! Don’t attack me now, but after much research I don’t think one is supreme over the other. Give them both a try and choose which you like best!

Simple 3 Step Hair Bun👱🏼‍♀️
Simple 3 Step Hair Bun👱🏼‍♀️
This is for all my fine and long haired people out there who struggle with even basic hair styles and whose hair doesn’t hold curl or volume despite hair spray! 1. Make a high ponytail with a thin elastic👱🏼‍♀️ Tips: You can Bobbi pin loose bits or brush them before making the style so it’s tighter. You can also use a hair oil or clear brow gel for flyaways at this point or at the end. 2. Twist and wrap hair in circle around the ponytail elastic until it’s fully wrapped around. Pull and adjust so all pieces are in place to your liking. Redo if needed to get it to look how you’d like it to in the middle. 3. For extra security, use Bobbi pins to pin together. 4. Put big sprunchie on top! My favorite is from Invisibobble. They’re really soft and big and they also have a variety of colors and patterns. My favorites are their light pink and leopard print ones but they have a bunch! 💕What’s your favorite easy style? invisibobble - Sprunchie Scrunchie

❓Spiral Hair Ties Worth the Hype❓
❓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!

how to style and manage thick hair!
how to style and manage thick hair!
hello everyone! today i am going to help give some tips and pointers on how to style and manage thick and/or long hair! if you cant tell, i have extremely thick, long, and fine hair. this is typical of scandinavians, as i am mostly scandinavian and get this hair type from my father. so, if you’re scandinavian as well, you also want probably struggle with your hair. my hair actually used to be much longer, but i cut it because im moving away soon and wont have access to my affordable hair stylist (my best friends mom)😂 the problem with thick, fine hair is that its very hair so curl and style because it doesnt want to stay put, and it doesnt hold curls very long. not to mention, curling my entire head of hair takes me about three hours😭 also, heats bad for your hair anyways, so none of these hairstyles involve heat! instead, they involve braids! now, any of variation of these styles can be done without braids. but i find braids to be a simple yet elegant way to manage hair like mine. i get a LOT of tangles very quickly, so braids help prevent tingles. another thing i use for thick hair is ARGAN MAGIC - 10 in 1 Treatment Leave in Spray this is a hair mist that de-frizzes my hair, and helps to smooth it out. its a good idea to always wet down your hair with hair mist or water, as it helps you be able to seperate and work with your hair. now lets get into the styles! style one: hair pulled back from face this style is really simple and can be done with braids or just plain hair. it involves pulling a front chunk of hair from each side away from the face and tying it together in the back. this helps get hair away from your face that may cause sweat or acne, and it can help to make your hair look more tame. style two: half up half down there are many ways to style to top section of your hair! in this photo, i simply put the top of hair in a ponytail, braided it, then tied it at the end. some girls like to do a bun on top, others do a plain pony. you can also french or dutch braid just the top part of your hair and leave the rest down if you like. this can help get your hair out of your face! style three: one sided dutch braid this hair style is a little more difficult. basically, i started a dutch braid on the left side of my head, and incorporated all of my hair into it. youre left with a nice side braid! i cant braid down the middle of my head, so this is a better option. also, double dutch or french braids look great for thick hair, as they look really big and stylish. definitely wet your hair for this one! so, how do you style your thick hair? do you have any other tips? dont forget to cheer and follow if you enjoyed ❤️

Easy And Perfect Hairstyle For Curly Hair🤩🤩
Easy And Perfect Hairstyle For Curly Hair🤩🤩
This is honestly a perfect hairstyle for curly hair! I really like to spend time doing my hair. A couple of my friends told me that it was hard for them to find a nice hairstyle. I recommended this hairstyle to them, and they all loved it! But honestly, it looks different for different hairstyles. I personally think it looks the best with curly hair. And here is how to do it.  Step 1: Everyone has slightly different curls. You should pin up sections of curls according to your curls. Find the best ones for you.  Step 2: Don’t brush curly hair! You can use a leave in conditioner spray if you have any tangles. Step 3: Separate a section on top of your head down to around your temples. Give it a twist at the back and pin it in place with bobby pins. I like to leave it loose to keep some volume on top. Step 4: Take a section of curls near your ear and twist them over and around the first bobby pins. Pin them in place with bobby pins. Step 5: Depending on how much hair you have, split the rest of your hair into smaller sections. Twist each section up into a loose bun and pin in place. Step 6: Look out for any curls poking out and push them back in. Use a pin to keep them up if you need to. If you have long or thick hair, you can use hair elastics to create some small ponytails in step 5. This helps hold your hair up so you can pin the curls more easily. Also, you can use spin pins if you have thick hair. I hope you find this helpful. If you have any other tutorials for curly hair, let me know!!

Easy Party Hairstyle Pictorial
Easy Party Hairstyle Pictorial
About my hair: thiiiiick, long, wavy/curly, frizzy This style was done on same-day washed hair. I loveeeee this style, especially for summer! It’s super easy to do. The concept involves making small buns. While my pictorial involves making 3 buns, depending on your hair length you may only be able to do 2 buns. I’ve also done this style with 2 buns and it’s really cute! This style can be done regardless of your hair type. What you’ll need -heavy duty Bobby or spin pins -hairspray -comb -optional: texture spray if your hair texture is fine or slippery Steps: (Pre-step: spray texture spray throughout hair if using. Skip if not.) 1. Comb all of your hair from the front of your head towards the back. 2. Separate the section of hair near your crown. 3. Twist the hair counter-clockwise until it starts to coil. Wrap the hair around itself into a bun shape. Use your other hand to hold the bun in place while wrapping. 4. Pin the bun in place. 5. Separate the section of hair above your ears. 6. Repeat steps 3-4 to pin a second bun into place. 7. Repeat steps 3-4 to pin a third bun into place. 8. Add additional Bobby pins if needed to secure your buns and smooth hair in the front of your head. Use hairspray to lock your style into place. If your hair is shorter, this style can be done by separating your hair into 2 sections instead of 3. Accessories, like sparkly pins or clips, would look awesome with this style. My tips: Invest in some spin pins. They make buns a BREEZE. For these small buns, I only use 1 spin pin because they hold so well. goody - Hair Simple Styles Mini Spin Hair Pin are about $7-9. Heavy duty Bobby pins also work well, such as CONAIR - Styling Essentials Firm Hold Bobby Pins , which are amazing for thick hair (about $6-7). I don’t suggest using non-textured styling pins because they won’t hold this style. I used VERB - Ghost Hairspray in this pictorial, but feel free to use whatever medium or high hold hairspray you have on hand!
