Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

This weekends inspiration comes from an actress of one of my all time favourite shows: Sarah Hyland from Modern Family. The lateral fishtail braid she is wearing here is lovely. I may have a soft spot for braids, as you can see here and here! If like me, you find it difficult to make a nice fishtail braid, you can make a regular one and it will also look fantastic!

Sarah Hyland’s braid is a super-classic and versatile hairstyle, which can be used by women with all shapes of faces. Use a hair ointment throughout the length of the hair and then make a voluminous blow dry, then split the hair into wicks and apply a curling iron – this will make the strands more messy and unobtrusive.Get the whole hair and position it to the side.Trim the threads in two or three and begin to braid them – fasten with a transparent hair band.

Use the curling iron to mark the strands of the fringe – loose, they soften the face. Finish the hairstyle with a good hairspray.

My hair does not have volume, at all. Then, of course, I am drawn to hairstyles with a lot of it 🙂 !  I think this particular voluminous ponytail can be something I will be able to pull it off, with lots of volumizing hair products and a good curling iron!

Start with a Chelsea blow dry – before, pass a volumizing hair mousse on the length of the hair to ensure the volume and fixation of the waves. Make upward movements with the root to add volume. Then throw some styling powder only at the roots to add more volume.

You can take a few strands on the side of the head and make a braid or a thin twist. You can also choose some interlaced strands and end with a curling iron to give this look of movement.

Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

I have an engagement dinner this weekend and I think it is a perfect opportunity to try this small lateral twist! It is fun but nice hairstyle for this kind of event and also perfect for the summer! If you have good hair skills (or a good hairdresser) you can make a small lateral braid, it is also very nice.

The coolest thing about this hairstyle is that girls with curly or wavy hair can use it in a natural way without having to blow dry the hair. The volume and curls they already have naturally are the main characters of this look. To achieve the polished effect of the photo above, make a solution with a gel of high fixation and water, sprinkle it on the roots and fasten it in a ponytail at the nape of the neck. You can also use a strong hold hairspray. If you have a fringe, mix the strands with the rest of the hair. It is fresh and chic!

Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

A low ponytail is one of the most versatile hairstyles: it goes from running errands on a Saturday morning to cocktail parties and Sunday picnics. We also saw how versatile it is here and here!

The first step is to brush the hair with the aim of leaving it flat on the top of the head and shape the ends.With a thin cord comb, make a line by splitting the hair in half and then position it behind the ear. Then apply some hair ointment to the palms of the hands, distribute them through the hair strands so that they remain close to the scalp and fasten with an elastic band. Complete the ponytail using a lock of hair to go around the ponytail and make it even more sophisticated.

This weekend I am going to try a braid tiara! It is not a hairstyle easy to do at first, but it is worth to give it a try because it looks very pretty and polished!

The hairstyle is ideal for everybody because just by shredding and giving a little volume to the fringe, all types of faces are elongated.

Here is a helpful guide:

To make a braid tiara, start with a blow dry with a smooth finish. Then separate two strands at the height of the ears, make two braids, cross them over the head to form a tiara and fasten with hair pins. To make it even more polished (and like the woman in the picture above), complete the production by dividing the front of the hair in the middle and hanging behind the head – overlapping the braid – to form a hairstyle half-trapped. Finish with hair spray.

Making a hairstyle with hair up can be a great option during the hottest days of the year. Ponytails are very versatile and can go from running errands during the day to formal parties. It is so pretty and so simple!

 

You can add volume to the front part of hair just following these simple steps:

1- Begin the style by creating a large triangle section of hair from your crown to the recession of your hairline.
2- Tease this triangle section. If your hair is super soft, add a little hairspray to the section for texture and hold.
3- Pull the teased triangle section of hair back towards your crown. Twist the hair, push it up a bit and secure with a bobby pin. Pushing up your section before securing it will give you added height.
4- Comb remaining hair back to the desired height of your ponytail. Pull tightly to keep the hair smooth.
5- Secure the ponytail with a hair band.
6- Take a small section of hair out of your ponytail, wrap it around the hair band and secure the ends of your section with a bobby pin underneath the band to conceal it and create a more polished look.

Hair Mist Favourites: My Current Top 5 Scents

One of the things I simply love and do not live without in life is perfume. I love to feel that I am smelling good. =] When I was young I had the habit of sprinkling fragrances on my hair, after all, it is delightful to smell a delicious aroma in the air when we shake our locks, right ?! Or when you are going to hug someone and that person has a lovely perfume on their hair.

There are also those occasions when we leave a restaurant with the smell of food in the hair, or even some smoke-smelling party or barbecue… Thinking about these, there is nothing better to help us on those occasions than hair mists, they exist, are many and varied, and can save our lives on many occasions.

Hair mists can be used every day, even for those who wash their hair more often. It is good not to overdo it so that the fragrance does not accumulate on the hair. It should be applied with a distance of 10 cm from the hair strands.

Currently, there are several versions on the market, with more or less fixing, but everything depends on your taste. Remember to be careful with the mixture of fragrances between your shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer and hair scent… Do not overdo it! If you, like me, love having scented hair, you will love today’s post! Here are the top 5 hair perfumes I am loving:

1- Valentino Donna Hair Mist: It is a sweet and striking hair scent. Suitable for those who like to leave their trail of fragrance in the air!

2- Angel by Mugler Perfuming Hair Mist: This makes your hair smells so good!  It isn’t as intense as the perfume, which I like. It also helps to neutralize unwanted odors.

Hairstyle inspiration for the weekend

This weekend I am willing to try something a bit more complex on my hair! And although the hair in the picture is long, I think this look can work for different lengths of hair (my hair is currently with a medium length)!

I think is a pretty hairstyle, not to trick to replicate at home and very put together! It can also go to several different occasions!

Effortless-Braided-Beach-Waves-650x650

This hairstyle has two fancy braids that start from the sides and meet at the centre of the back of the head, where you should tie them into a simple pigtail. To make the braids to stay at the right place, you can apply hairspray and hidden hairpins.

You can also make the hairstyle more elegant by curling or really smoothing the loose part of the hair.

Graduation: The best hairstyles

One of the most awaited moments in the student’s life, the graduation deserves a production to match the event. However, with the gown covering the chosen look and the cap being the center of the attention in the head, it is necessary a little of creativity to enhance the look on the long awaited occasion. To receive the diploma in style, here are a few tips.

StockSnap_P3HOQ0NV1C

Straight and wavy hair are good options if you plan on using your hair loose

Loose hair is the bet of most women for graduation. A simple blow dry ensures smooth, beautiful hair in place all day long. For this option, invest in products that maintain the effect of the blow dry for a longer time, like anti-frizz products. The nervousness, the long hour under the sun (or strong lights of the stage) and the heat caused by the gown can cause sweat and frizz on the hair. With the blow dry finished, boost the shine of the hair with shine spray.

To escape from straight hair, one option is to curl the locks. There are several ways to make the Babyliss, creating definite curls or just light and wide waves, at the tips or the entire length of hair. To give more prominence to the whole loose hairstyle, bet on tiaras, loops or rhinestones, that do not fight with the cap.

Tied hair must be low and with no volume

Who wants to escape the traditional loose threads can bet on simple, low and volumeless hair so that the cap does not spoil or mark the hairstyle during the ceremony. Good options are the ponytail or tied on the lateral. The textured locks guarantee style and fade from the ordinary.

Braids please all styles

Braids are a great option for those looking for an enhanced look. There are several versions, such as traditional, embedded or fishbone. The options for any length of hair are endless and contemplate several styles. The braids also work as detail to turbine semi-tied hairstyles and buns.

Buns guarantee a sophisticated look

For graduation, buns should be low or lateral, with few undulations. The hairstyle is simple to make and guarantees a sophisticated look. Vary the style with twisted or braided strands, try a different strand from the one you normally wear or highlight the fringe.

Twisted hairstyles make a romantic look and are uncomplicated to do by ourselves. It is very versatile, going from brunch to a date night with ease.

To make sure it will stay in place for as long as you want, don’t forget to put it on with hairpins and hairspray.

This hairstyle can be easily done with a medium or long hair, and I think it can work even for people who like me, have far less volume than the one in the picture! Never be afraid to try a new hairstyle!
