These 5 Curly Hairstyles are Perfect for Bad Hair Days
Anyone can argue that curly hair can be both a blessing and a curse. It's a glorious day when every curl is a perfect spiral, you have volume instead of poof, and you look like you stepped off the runway. Though there are days when your curls humble you. It's on those days, my friend, when you opt for these curly hairstyles instead. So grab your smoothing serum, leave-in conditioner, and parting comb and turn those bad hair days into great curly hairstyles.
It's chic in the front and party in the back. This curly hairstyle helps you channel your inner model. Tame your mane with some gel and a bristle brush, then when you've got your hair as smooth as possible, bring your curls into a low ponytail. Then tease away to your heart's desire.
If you want a hairstyle that will get your hair under control and out of your face, braids are a great solution. A two braid hairstyle specifically is a classic. Regardless if it's regular, dutch, or pull-through braids, this style is both practical and sweet. Additionally, the texture of your curly hair will also add a lot of dimension and hold to the look.
Speaking of braids, you don't have to braid your whole head. Accent braids are a happy compromise between getting your hair out of your face and showing off your brilliant natural texture. Get creative with it! Braid the side of your head for an edgy look or your bangs for a bohemian vibe. Try chunky or little, the options are endless! Accent braids aren't just for one style, you can apply them to practically all curly hairstyles!
You know that messy bun that you see, and it's just so freakin' pretty? And you're like, 'why doesn't my messy bun ever look like that?' It's probably because the girl sporting the super cute messy bun knows that the key to the perfect messy bun is curls. Curls just add romance to an otherwise low-key hairstyle. This is a great curly hairstyle to play around with and learn about your curls more and look fantastic while doing it.
If you've got natural hair, put your hair in Bantu buns! This funky hairstyle is great for when you want to look modern and hip without all the work. With each section make sure to smooth down the hair with gel before tying it into a bun. Another key part to creating the aesthetic of this hairstyle is clean even parts. This is a versatile curly hairstyle that you could assemble into a faux hawk or space buns.

3 Easy Ways to Volumize Your Hair
Hair concerns: Flat, Thin These are my 3 quick, go-to hair tips for volumizing my hair! This is great for when you’re on the go and don’t have too much time on your hands. 1. Use a Root Volumizer Hot Tool (Bed Head Little Tease Hair Crimper for Outrageous Texture and Volume) - Using this root volumizer hot tool will give you the volume of teased hair without the tangled knots and hairspray. It works by making small crimps or waves in your hair and gives your roots volume from the texture it creates. Just make sure to cover your roots with a layer of hair to conceal the textured areas. - Directions: Clamp the hot tool at your roots, brush it out with your fingers, and cover it with a layer of hair. Spray a moderate amount of hair spray to keep it in place. 2. Dry Shampoo - Thin, flat hair usually looks lifeless because of the lack of texture and thinness of the hair shaft. This means that having freshly washed hair can actually be your worst enemy if you’re going for a volumized look. Adding in a hair product can help at the roots by allowing for your hair to be styled into place. You can use any texturizing spray to do so, but I like to use dry shampoo especially for second-hair days! It helps soak up the oils in my hair as well as volumizing my roots. - Directions: Use any dry shampoo your own and spray onto your roots and brush it out. 3. Hair Extensions - Adding hair extensions onto your head will effortlessly give the illusion that your hair is much thicker than it actually is. The added layers will make the roots of your hair appear uplifted. You can choose from lengthening hair extensions (like mine) or extensions that match your hair length. Either way, it’ll make your hair on your head look much fuller. - Directions: Use clip-in hair extensions and clip it onto your roots. Cover the clip-ins with a layer of hair and spray hairspray it to keep it in place. #cheriepartner #sponsored

Dermatologist opinion: caffeine eye cream
THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream Why I like the Inkeylist caffeine eye cream: ✔️ Lightweight texture blends very easily ✔️ Hydrating ✔️ Can help reduce puffiness ✔️ Antioxidant ingredients help fight off free radicals from the sun and pollution ✔️ Can help improve the appearance of dark circles ✔️ Fragrance free- no smell to it! ✔️ Affordable ✨ It is one of my favorite go-to eye creams because of the caffeine which really helps with my puffy eyes in the morning and has helped with my dark circles. I also really like that it blends in easily, is fragrance free, and affordable. I like using this once a day in the morning but this can be used twice a day. I like using it in the mornings because it really helps with my puffy eyes (which is worse in the morning for me!). I notice an immediate effect on the puffiness around my eyes. It took a few weeks to notice the improvement on my dark circles. What do you think about this eye cream? Comment below!
