Tangled Up

If you are like me, and despise combing out your hair, during or after a shower, you must look into a Wet Brush Pro. Hands down, the best detangling brush I have found so far. The flexible, and elongated bristle’s easily detangle the hair, without causing breakage. 

I always recommend applying a leave-on conditioner to the hair, before, you even attempt to untangle the hair from a shower. One of my favorites is Pinstripe from R+Co. Start brushing it out, working from the bottom up, so you do not cause any breakage. It’s also the perfect accessory to keep in the shower, to brush that conditioning mask through… You know, the one you should be doing as a treatment once a week. Take care of that hair ladies! Do you have any tricks that you found to detangle your hair?

Freshen Up

In a hair rut? Try something different. 

This easy take on a classic bun, incorporates three hair knots to make one awsome style. 

You will need

  • Clear elastics
  • Bobby pins

How To

  1. Tease the top of your hair to give a little extra volume.
  2. Make your first section by running your fingers from your temples, straight around to the back of your head.
  3. Style your first knot by pulling the hair half way through an elastic and then wrapping it a few more times to secure it (the messier the better).
  4. Make another section below the first, by running your thumbs along the bottom curve of your head. Repeat #3.
  5. Gather the leftover hair to make your last knot.
  6. Fluff up each knot by pulling it apart a touch and then secure and loose or crazy ends with a few bobby pins.
  7. Lastly, spritz a little hair spray all over to secure it.

Twist & Braid

It is easy to wear your hair down, whether naturally straight or wavy. Embrace that natural texture and add these three extra steps, for a little change in your normal routine.

Tools Needed

  • Bobby Pin
  • Clear Elastic

1) With hair parted just off center, twist the smaller side back and secure with a Bobby Pin.

2) Grab a three inch section of hair from the opposite side, braid and secure with a clear elastic.

3) Softly pull the braid apart, by sliding the elastic up as you pull one strand down.

Top Knot + Braid

A playful revamp on the classic top knot, I recently wore this look to brunch as a quick little ‘do. It is the perfect style to wear when your hair is a bit unwashed….a favorite way to keep my hair on the weekend and let it just be. Keep the style fresh with this look.

  

 Follow below for the how-to and the step by step.

You will need:

  • Teasing comb or brush
  • Hairspray| Used: Kerastase Laque Dentelle
  • Hair Tie
  • Hair Donut
  • Dry Shampoo or Kerastase Volume in Powder
  • Small elastic
  • Bobby Pins

  

1) Part your hair and tease the sides and crown, spraying a light hold hairspray after. 

  

2) Smoothing the sides,leave the volume at the crown and make a ponytail. Leaving 1/4 of the ponytail out, place a hair donut over the ponytail and secure at the base on each side with a Bobby pin where the hair and donut meet.

  

3) Braid the left out section, and secure with a small clear elastic. Lightly pull the braid apart to thicken it. Using a dry shampoo or volumizing spray, spritz the ponytail. Back comb the ponytail, letting the hair fall down as you go.

 

4) Flipping the ponytail over the base of the pony, coil the hair around the donut and secure the bun with Bobby pins at the base where needed.

 

5) Wrap the braid over the bun securing the ends with a bobby pin. Spritz hairspray all over to finish the look, smoothing the sides and keep the messy texture elsewhere.
