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!
All the cool fashionable girls seem to be wearing this updo right now so I’m excited to see a tutorial on how to do it! And it’s so easy to create, you could do this while you’re half asleep getting ready for work (yeah, that’s me!)
Adding a scarf to your ‘do is a great way cover up less than stellar hair days! My favourite one is the fun knotted do! Plus Paper N Stitch rates the tutorials so you know straight up if it’s easy (or just looks easy!)
A Cup Of Jo always has these gorgeous tutorials for your hair that give the impression that you just did a little twist here and a little tuck there to create a casual yet classy style! If you always fall back on a pony (guilty!) then this is a great way to add a bit of a twist (no pun intended!) to it.
Here is a quick yet pretty hair style that can be styled in two different ways. I particularly like the way the hair is twisted around the pony tail. I’m trying this out tomorrow!
