Brit + Co has a great round up of hair chalk styles that is sure to get your creative juices going! Hair chalk is a great alternative to dyeing (and less risk of it all going pear shaped when you wash your hair!) and it means you can change up your style each day. Hair chalk is so easy to find these days - they even have it at Woolworths if you’re in Australia - and some brands are actually really good on dark hair too! I love the bottom pic, it’s very girly and somewhat how I think a mermaid would have her hair. Click through for even more inspiration, including darker hair pics!
My hair has been put in a pony tail so much in my life that it now has a kink in it. Yep. Anyway, I love ponytails, especially as I can’t stand my hair in my face. But plain ponys can get boring, and for some reason scrunchies are no longer a mainstay in my house. I really love the pony on the far right with it’s ‘bubble’ segments. I’ll just need to purchase a few more elastics!
I love those tutorials where they show you how to recreate a hair style that only takes four different pomades, 300 bobby pins and 7 arms. For some reason, my hair never looks the same as the picture, fancy that! If you can French braid (or braid if you’re like me!) and create a back comb, you can create this hairstyle. I like that it’s an updo but doesn’t feel too ‘done’, meaning if you get up earlier than me in the mornings, you could probably create this style (or something close to it!)
Regardless of whether you’re a casual bike rider or a every day cyclist, if you wear a helmet you’ll know the horror of helmet hair! Well here are 5 gorgeous hairstyles that you can easily create and have confidence that after your ride your hair will still look fab (in fact, these are great to try even if you have never ridden a bike in your life!)
Keiko Lynn is my beauty hero. She seems to have perfected the cat eye, always has the most amazing lipstick and she can tie a hair scarf like a fiend! Sigh. Anyway, whilst perusing her site, I came across this fantastic tutorial on how to do an updo for short hair. I kind of sadly accepted I would no longer be able to put my hair up once I cut it, but this style which combines a teased crown, bobby pins & a pretty scarf is something even I could re-create! Perfect Summer hair!
I always try to feature short hair tutorials but sometimes they’re hard to come by. That’s why I like this ‘hair jewelry’ - you can wear this on short hair as well as long - the two flowers are attached to bobby pins. This is so customisable, and you could even wear these as a cardigan clip!
If you’re wanting to try a new look in 2014, try going to the past for inspiration! The victory roll is a intricate 1940’s hairstyle which as you can see above, can be created and styled in many different ways. Molly Makes has rounded up four tutorials on how to achieve the look, from a casual take to a mix of styles. So get your bobby pins and teasing comb out and get to styling!
There are so many long hair tutorials out there, but not a ton for short hair. So you can imagine how surprised i was to find a collection on all places as BuzzFeed! Crazy. But hey, there’s 20 of em, count em, 20, for us cropped locked gals. I absolutely love the first one pictured, the side knot. Check out the rest on the click through!
Oh my gosh, this is exactly how I curled my hair when I was little! I was way too much of a wuss to sleep in curlers. Rag rolling is actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it, and isn’t going to damage your hair like a curling iron or hot rollers might. Just make sure of two things - that your hair is damp (not wet!) and that you give it enough time to curl. I usually did it before going to sleep. You wake up with pretty, soft wavy hair. This is also fantastic for little ones!
One of the requests I get all the time is requests for short hair tutorials. But it’s so hard to find ones that aren’t just ‘slick it back with a headband’. So I love this updo - a gorgeous combo of braids and bouffant. Super pretty!
Last Monday, in a fit of frustration, I cut my hair short. I don’t regret it because it actually looks pretty good (though I would not suggest cutting your own hair to anyone - mine is quite wavy which makes the choppy look work!). But then I find a ton of gorgeous braids on the internet. Of course! But that doesn’t mean I can’t share these looks with you, my fab reader. If you’re doing something special this weekend then this might be a great Spring look.
Every time I think I’m going to chop all my hair off in an annoyed rage I see another gorgeous long hair tutorial and change my mind. I love every one of these tutorials - they make me think of Disney princess hair (especially the third one. I’ve been seeing a lot of styles where the hair hangs over the ear, so romantic!). And yeah, I’m really digging that first bubble-ish style. Great for us ladies who aren’t great at braiding!
Whenever I see a new twist on the ponytail (pun!) I post it because that is basically my hair’s natural state. Quick, easy and pretty!
I always find these tutorials on Pintrest and the like where they say ‘this is soeasy to do, and it takes less than five seconds’. Then I try and it ends up taking half an hour and I’m running late for work and I stick my head with a bobby pin and UGH! But I tried this one this morning and I can confirm… yes you have to use about a billion pins but it looks amazing and I still got out of the house on time!
As a perpetual pony-tailer, I love this tutorial for it’s new twist on the old favourite! And it’s so simple to do too, I swear - you could probably do it right now if you have long hair and a ponytail holder!
