BLOWN-OUT BRAID USING HAIR ELASTICS

Whether you have naturally long hair or you wear hair extensions, you can create this blown-out braid!
This is a great tutorial for those of you that cannot get to grips with braiding your own hair, whether you struggle to master the pattern or just find it too fiddly. This a simple cheat that will change your braiding game forever.

All you need is clear hair elastics, mousse & hairspray for added grip, and a spare 5 minutes! It doesn’t get much easier than that.

You could sport this gorgeous cheat-braid to a festival this Summer, or, you could strategically place some gypsophila down the braid and turn it into a stunning bridal / bridesmaid hairstyle.

This is so gorgeous! Split your hair into 5 even sections and fishtail. If you don’t know how to fishtail there’s many tutorials on YouTube. It’s super hard to explain the order or the braids but you can tell my looking at the picture💖✨

How to tie a hair scarf for short hair

Short hair is amazing but it can sometimes be a pain to style. I’ve been borrowing my bff’s styling wax recently to keep my pixie in shape, but there are some days when it just refuses to be tamed and that’s when I bring out the hair scarves. 

Today I’m sharing a step by step tutorial on how to tie a hair scarf for short hair. This is one of the easiest ways to wear a scarf if you’re looking to keep the top of your hair covered. Since my hair is super thick and wavy, it likes to stick up at the top, especially on those bad hair days! This is my preferred scarf tying style to keep everything all neat and tucked in when I don’t have enough time or just can’t be bothered with doing my hair. 

Using a square scarf, fold it into a triangle.

Place the scarf on top of you head with one end of the triangle sticking over your face. The shorter this bit is, the easier it will be for you to tuck in the scarf later on. 

Pull the two other ends over your ears and on top of your head.

Tie the ends together in a double knot over the bit sticking out in front of your face. Fluff the scarf a little over your head so that it looks natural and not too tight!

Now, double those two ends behind your head and knot them again at the nape of your neck. This knot shouldn’t be too tight, otherwise it’ll start travelling up the back of your head after a while! Tuck the stray ends under the scarf and secure them with a bobby pin. 

Finally, roll up the end dangling at the front and tuck it under the knot. And that’s it, you’re done! Takes all of two minutes and you’re good to shimmy out of the door. 

I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial! I’ve put together a little selection of square scarves below, and a composite image for pinning.

Fluffy Bun

Fluffy Bun?  Fan Bun?  Slinky Bun?  I’m still struggling to figure out the perfect name for this look!  No matter what it’s called, I love this hairstyle because it is a unique bun that only takes 5 easy steps to complete.  Another thing that is great about the style is that it creates a big, voluminous bun, even if you don’t have a lot of hair.

Materials:

1) Brush

2) 2 Hair Ties

3) Bobby Pins

Procedure:

1) Begin by brushing your hair into a high ponytail.

2) Re-tie your ponytail with a second hair tie on top of the first, but do not pull all of your hair through on the last loop.

3) Wrap the loose hair (not pulled through) around the base of the ponytail and bobby pin into place.

4) Take the top loop of your bun and fluff it out.

5) Bobby pin the ends of your bun down and to the shape of your choice and finalize with hairspray.
