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.
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!
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.
Small bottles and containers are always the best options, even if you are traveling by car. Big bottles of shampoo and conditioner take too much space and we never use that much, anyway. The BIODERMA Sensibio H2O Make-up Removing Micelle Solution is one of my favourites and already comes in a 100ml package.
2- Oil-Control Blotting Paper
I can’t live without it! You just press over your face and it removes the oiliness, without removing your makeup!
3- Face cream
A powerful face cream, like the Lait-Crème, from Embryolisse, can recover any damage you have done on your skin from either hot or cold weather.It is light and can be used even as a primer for makeup.
4- Dry shampoo
It is a makeup bag life savior: it creates volume, masks any excessive oiliness and leaves the hair with a natural texture.
5- Light colored nail polish
Dark and colourful enamels tend to get older faster. So, for long trips, light colored nail polishes (that are also lovely) make chips harder to see.
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.
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!
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.
This hairstyle is perfect for the weekend! It keeps the hair out of your face, is super easy to pull off, and it looks really cool. Just remember to use a lot of texturing hair spray to get this effect. If you have fine hair, you can also apply something to give more volume (mine looks very sad if I don’t use it).
