Everyone wants fuller, thicker hair.  Especially when you throw your hair up into a ponytail, you want it to appear as full and luscious as it can!  There are lots of different ways you can achieve this, you just have to follow a few tips in order to do so.  Here are 5 different tips to volumize your ponytail!

  • Before every ponytail, you’ll need to add some texture to your hair. This will make your hair look fuller before you even put it into a ponytail.  Whether you do this with mousse or texture spray, it’s the first step to almost every hairstyle!
  • Prop up your ponytail with two bobby pins. Set two bobby pins in place under your ponytail like the picture below.  This gives it the height it needs and will also help keep it in place for the night!Chelsea Crockett - Bobby Pin Hack
  • Add some dry shampoo. Dry shampoo does more than just its original purpose.  If you add some to your hair before you put it up, it’ll feel cleaner and appear thicker!
  • Tease different sections of your hair. To keep the messy look, tease different parts of your pony so it’s not too over-the-top but still has some lift in it.

Did these tips work for you?  Share with me below what works best for your hair!

Concealer is one of the best beauty tools in the world.  You can hide your tiredness by disguising dark circles or conceal stubborn pimples that won’t go away.  It color corrects, brightens, and evens out your skin to give you the perfect foundation for a beautiful face of makeup.  With that being said, we should know what we’re doing wrong with our concealer to guarantee that we’re making the most out of our product! 

  1. Rubbing in your concealer with your finger.Chelsea Crockett - Naked Concealer  It may be gross to think about, but our fingers are covered in dirt, oil, and lots of bacteria.  Our fingers also don’t absorb any of our concealer like a beauty blender would which leaves it feeling caked on.  A beauty blender will blend it evenly and leave you without creases or streaks!
  2. Using the same concealer for all your blemishes, dark circles, etc.  Although this isn’t necessarily the wrong way of doing it, you can get much better coverage by using differently textured concealers.  For dark circles, try using a thicker concealer such as a cream based one.  As for pimples, try using a light, liquid concealer!  
  3. Applying your concealer first as your base.  Although you may be anxious to cover up those zits as soon as you wake up, you won’t get your best coverage by starting with concealer.  Apply your foundation first, then apply your concealer!

What mistake are you making?  Now you know what to change when it comes to applying concealer!

There is one sort of hair style that I have not been able to fully master, and that is the messy look. You know, the Gigi Hadid, just off of the beach, effortlessly messy hair. I have heard that the key to a successful beachy, wavy, wind-blown style is using texture spray. Not all texture spray is the same, though, so I did a little bit of research to see which one would help me achieve my desired look. Here are my top 3 texturizing sprays, which are all really affordable!not-your-mothers-double-take-dry-finishg-texture-spray

  1. Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease: This one costs less than $5…winning! Misting this spray all over your locks gives it that “undone” texture. Spray it on curled hair or natural hair for a boost!
  2. Not Your Mother’s Double Take Dry Finish Texture Spray: I love the “Not Your Mother’s” brand. This spray hydrates your strands with aloe and keratin while giving it a tousled finish. And, it is under $7!
  3. Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray: This formula absorbs oil and odors while giving your hair grip to hold its style, whether you are rocking an updo or beachy waves! It is also infused with argan oil that conditions and moisturizes your hair. This product is $11, and styles your hair without getting sticky or crunchy!

Having messy, tousled, textured hair in the summer is my dream! I recommend these sprays to anyone who feels the same. 🙂

Waking up in the morning is tough enough, but waking up early and being in a rush can be a total disaster!  Between deciding what to wear and doing your makeup, there’s barely enough time to give your hair a little TLC.  Luckily, there is a way to pull off that crazy bed head you get from a long nights sleep.  In a few simple steps you can achieve the perfect messy hair…think of it as “un-styling” your hair.Chelsea Crockett- bed head hair

First and foremost, you have to embrace your natural hair texture.  By playing off your hairs natural waves or curls, you’ll be able to style your hair much faster and easier.  Start by brushing out tangles with a wide-toothed comb, NOT a hairbrush.  A comb will take out specific tangles, while a hair brush will get rid of your natural texture.  Next, run water through your fingers and add it to the pieces of hair that look the limpest.  This will add body to dull, lifeless strands.  Add dry shampoo to your roots for freshness and volume.  A little dry shampoo goes a long way for instant fullness.

It’s as simple as that, and no heat is required!  Embrace that perfectly beautiful and messy bed head!
