I am so excited that summer is just around the corner!

*****************

Items Needed: 1 hair elastic, bandanna // time needed: 5-8 minutes (or less!) // difficulty: easy

*****************

1.) Start with your hair in a middle part (or a side part works too!)

tip: When my hair is wet I love to spray it with a sea salt hair mist. It adds a lot of texture and gives your hair beach-like waves. That’s what I did today. (:

2.) Grab a 1 inch section of hair from one side of the part and begin to do a french braid  straight back. Make sure to use smaller pieces of hair when you add strands in. Stop adding strands in just a couple of inches before the crown of your head ends. Do a couple stitches without adding in strands and temporarily secure with an elastic. Repeat this step with the other side. Now your hair should look something like this.

Tie your hair as if you are doing a regular half up pony tail, but on the last twist of the elastic, pull your hair half-way through. Pull gently on the outer ends of the top-knot to make it more fluffy.

4.) Roll up your bandanna and wrap it around your top knot and tie it in a secure knot, leaving the ends hanging on the side.

Dutch Braided Side Messy Bun {For SHORT hair!}

Hello Everyone!

Today I am going to show you how to do one of my favorite hairstyles. This one is great if your hair can be a little unruly and wild, like mine, and you just need a quick and simple hairstyle to make it look nice and put together.

 

 

This works great on short hair, however like always, it also works on long hair too. (:

Let’s get started!

********************

Items needed: 2 small hair elastics, 1 hair tie, 5-6 bobby pins as needed // Difficulty: easy-medium // time needed: 5-7 minutes.

********************

1.) Start with your hair parted in a side part. (A middle part works too, so just part your hair where you like it.)

2.) Started on the side where your side bun will be, begin to dutch braid straight back. One you start to reach the end of the crown of your head, finish the braid without adding in any more strands and secure with an elastic. (I like to leave some hair strands down in the front to frame my face)

3.) Now do a dutch braid in the same way on the other side, except instead of going straight back try to curve it slightly around your head. Once you reach the end of the crown of your head, continue braiding down without adding any more strands and secure with your second elastic. Then go back and pancake both braids.

4.) Now gather all your hair to one side for your side messy bun. I did mine on my left side. Now do a messy bun. I feel like everyone does their messy bun differently, but this is the way I do mine. I start to wrap it around like I’m doing a ponytail, but twist your elastic when your hair is about halfway through, then wrap it over. So it almost looks like a pull through ponytail. I hope that makes sense, and here’s some pictures of the steps, which should help a bit.

5.) Now grab random strands from your pull-through messy bun and bobby pin them down so you’re messy bun looks more messy and full.
