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!

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!

How to: Twisted Half Up Hairstyle

June 28, 2016

Here’s another super simple hairstyle for medium to long hair. It’s my version of a twisted half up style. All you need are 2 bobby pins!

Step by Step:

1) Curl your hair

2) Start at your part, I had a side part and twist and grab hair at the same time

3) Continue to your temples and start twisting just the hair strand

4) when you reach the end of your hair fatten the twisted strand by pulling pieces from it, make sure to keep holding on to the end of the twist

5) pin that twist back with a bobby pin

6) repeat on the opposite side… and done

Quick Braided Bun Tutorial

February 5, 2016

Here’s a quick change to our normal “effortless” bun…The Braided Bun, works best with long hair!

  1. I sprayed Paul Mitchell Dry Wax on my ends for some texture with a little shine and oil
  2. Tie hair up, I like it pretty high so you can see the bun/braid
  3. Do a three strand braid
  4. When you get to the end of your braid, pull the sides of the braid to fatten it up, have a bigger braided bun
  5. Wrap it around your pony
  6. Bobby pin in place and lightly pull the braided bun

Done!
