I’m really sorry I didn’t post a hairstyle for the last post of the 6 in 6 days, I was really busy that day, and didn’t even realize until the next day that I hadn’t! Hopefully this makes up for it! 😉 From now on there will be a regular post each week (usually on a Monday.) Remember to subscribe for email notifications on new posts! Now lets get onto the hairstyle!
I saw a picture for this a while ago, but had never tried it before. I think it’s a really pretty, and unique hairstyle, and while it may be a difficult one to try on yourself, it’s great to do on other people! If you would like a diy tutorial on this hairstyle, please leave a comment below!
Items needed: Rat tail comb, brush, 2 small rubber elastics, 4-5 bobby pins.
Begin by parting the hair down the middle..
then section off a crescent shaped bit of hair from the top of the part to above the ear, on either side of the head…
tie back the remaining hair for the moment..
Next lace braid from the part line on either side of the head until you run out of hair, finish off in a plait.
Un-tie the remaining hair and french braid until you reach just above the nape of the neck…
Finish off in a fishtail braid..
Now go back and grab your two lace braids, tying them together with an elastic around where the rosette is in the picture…
then pancake the braids a little to make them look fuller…
and form a bun shaped rosette, pin it to hold it in place, and you’re done!
I’ll remind everyone once more, that this is going to be a request run site, so basically you make the request and we’ll try to do the hairstyle for you!
For my first official post on Seton Girls Hairstyles, I’m going to show you how I do my basic wand curls! They’re pretty easy once you get the hang of using a wand, but it can take some practice (believe me, you should have seen some of my first attempts! ) So hopefully this tutorial will help you out, and please don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you have any questions ect!
I used the babyliss pro conical curling wand (32mm-19mm, )
Make sure if you use shampoo not to over do it. (and only wash your hair every 2-3 days) This helps your hair regulate it’s own natural oil production, keeping it nourished naturally. 😉
Use a good hairbrush, this is very important because you don’t want to be damaging your hair with a bad one. Brushes like this one and this one are very gentle, and therefore, good for your hair. These ones (or similar) could probably be found at most shops with hair supplies.
Always plait or braid your hair before going to bed; it prevents damage as you sleep and your hair is much more manageable when you wake up in the morning. If you can, using a scrunchie like this one : is meant to be much better to sleep on than a normal hair tie, which is more prone to damage as you sleep.
Another big tip would be never to use hair products with SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) SLS (sodium laureth sulfate) or any number of other bad product put there which you should avoid. That said, these are two of the most damaging for your hair (not to mention unhealthy.) So try to use natural and organic hair products when possible.
One great hair product is argan oil. It can be a bit more on the expensive side, but getting a good one is really worth it because it will last a long time. 😉 Coconut oil is also extremely effective for taming frizz and nourishing dry ends.
One of the biggest tips is to have a hand mirror to use along with a larger mirror (a bathroom mirror for example) in order to see the back of your hair while you are braiding/styling. This helps so much! Like this one:
When you wear any type of ponytail, do NOT take it out by yanking the rubber band through your hair. Instead, try to gently unloop it until it slides out. This simple change will prevent LOTS of unnecessary damage to your hair.
Here is a great book on hair care; especially if your hair is curly:
