Half Up Waves Hair Tutorial

September 20, 2016

Straight or Wavy?

My hair is naturally straight, to get it this pretty wave, I use the Hot Tools Deep Waver and I love it!

Similar to the effect of braiding your hair wet and letting it dry, you’ll get similar pretty waves.

Check out the video, I did a quick little twisted half up style after I waved my hair. Also you’re going to love Kenra’s new matte hairspray. Flake free, brushable, humidity resistant, that dries on contact, the perfect finishing spray. It’s a medium hold and not too shiny, perfect for undone, tossled hair styles!

Texture Braided Top Knot Hair Tutorial

I’ve been seeing this cute hairstyle and finally decided to do it!

  1. Section just the top half of your hair, nothing above the ear.

2. I did a 3 strand braid, braiding over the middle, continually grabbing from each side

3. once you reach the top of your head, secure with rubber band

4. braid the pony, grab a thin section from that braid and push hair toward the first braid

this will create a flower look.

5. Wrap that flower braid into a bun and pin down with bobby pins

Try it!
