5 Gorgeous ‘Dos For Cycling Chicks | Refinery 29

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!)

4 Hairstyles For Unwashed Hair | Refinery 29

There are lots of reasons you might have dirty hair in the morning (at my house it’s from repeated alarm clock hitting!). But just because your hair is dirty, doesn’t mean you have to settle for the usual pony - these four hairstyles are pretty and fairly easy to create. I particularly love the top right hand style - I’ll have to practice it so I can do it even when I’m half asleep!

How To: Two Strand Twist | Refinery 29

Though I hate to admit it, I’m quite un-coordinated. I realised this quite young when I thought I was going to be an amazing drummer. This un-coordination extends to doing anything with my hair - I just can’t hold that and then move that there and then twist that… gah. This two strand twist seems to be right up my alley - surely I can twist two pieces of hair together!? Plus it apparently gives you nice beachy waves if you leave it in overnight. I’m sold!

Chain Bracelet | I Spy DIY for Refinery 29
I’m pretty sure the knotting in this project is macrame - if someone knows please comment! Anyway, irregardless of what type of knotting this is, it’s adorable! If you don’t want to use suede or can’t find it, you could use thick cord, cotton thread, or even that plastic cord you made bracelets out of when you were a kid!

Stained Glass Nail Polish Tutorial | Refinery 29
This was meant to be a tutorial for Christmas but who says you can’t have stained glass nails any day of the week?! The colours pictured are very Christmasy, but I would love pink, blue and yellow colours. This has white as the ‘lines’ but if you wanted to you could also go for ‘real’ stained glass and use black with bright colours over the top.

Prada Inspired Clutch | Refinery 29
I know some people think that luxury items like handbags and clothing are a waste of money, but one day I would love to own something by a high fashion brand! It’s not just the name - it’s the quality of the workmanship too (and OK, the name!) Until the day I have a spare $1000 to blow on something extravagant though, I’m going to go the DIY route, just like with this pretty jewel encrusted clutch! There’s nothing quite like a bit of faux-bling to dress up a LBD, and when it’s this cheap to re-create, why wouldn’t you want one of your own?!

Glitter Collar | Refinery 29
For my birthday in April this year, I’m going to have a glitter party! Everyone is going to have to glitter up or face the consequences (which will be a glitter bomb to the hair) I’m pretty sure I have enough DIYs on here to dress head to toe in glitter. I’m going to make this for myself to go over the top of my favourite black dress… and my glitter shoes, glitter nails, glitter hand bag…
