Hello Everyone!

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

Today I am going to show you this super cute bandanna top-knot hairstyle. Let’s get started!

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.

Fishtail Side Braid

*Bonus Post*

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! We have a special bonus post for  you today!

Hey hey hey, everyone! Today, I have a super easy, super cute hairstyle to show y’all! So, this is one of my favorites to do when my hair is just a plain old mess, and I want that somewhat boho style. It’s really easy, takes little timing, and comes out really cute! Let’s get to it!

Items needed: two bobby pins, one elastic, and hairspray if desired.

Time: roughly 5 minutes

Difficulty: medium

1. Alrighty, to start, grab a small section of hair, anywhere from about a half an inch to an inch away from the front of your face.

2.With this section, begin to French-fishtail (by adding in hair to a normal fishtail braid) the the section until you get to the back of your ear (if you’re dealing with short hair, you may want to do the braid with smaller sections.)

3. Now, with that hair, continue to fishtail-braid (but you’re not adding hair in anymore!)

 

4.When you get to the end of your braid, hold it somewhat tightly, so that you do not undo your work.

5.Then, begin pancaking the braid by tugging on the edges (little tip: if you’re looking for a messier appearance, pancake the braid a bit more.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.Secure the pancaked braid with an elastic. Then, pin the braid to your desired placing (I like to hide my bobby pins, so I make sure to pin my braid behind a section of hair.)

And that’s all there is to it! If you’re dealing with shorter hair like mine, I would suggest hairspraying it.

Another little tip: if you want an even messier, boho appearance, grab different sizes of sections of hair throughout the braiding—rather than the same all the way through. (; Anywho! That’s about it!

(If you want a more formal look or just perhaps a tad fancier, I recommend curling your hair.  This side braid looks really cute on curly hair! And also try to make the braid as even a possible.)

Thanks for reading! Happy hairstyling, y’all!
