Humidity is the absolute worse.  Your hair can go from straight to curly or curly to flat as soon as you step outside!  Even your makeup can’t beat the heat and ends up sweating off before no time!  If your hair is notorious for frizzing up when humidity Chelsea Crockett - Double Braidsstrikes, try some of these hairstyles to rock no matter what the temperature is!

First rule is to conceal as much of your hair as possible.  Wearing a simple ponytail will still leave room for it to frizz up!  My go-to hairstyle is French braids or a fishtail braid.  Since the double braids are back in style, I rock them all the time!  If you can’t do French braids on yourself, try learning how to fishtail.  It’s super easy, and with a little practice you can master the look yourself!  (P.S. this is a good hairstyle if you have a lot of layers. Chelsea Crockett - Braided Bun It takes little pieces at a time so it stops them from sticking out like they might in normal braids!)

If you need a little extra help containing the frizz, don’t be afraid to utilize accessories!  Things like headbands and hats are made for rescuing you from hair emergencies!  Apart from accessorizing, buns are good for this too.  I have yet to try this style for myself, but braided headbands followed by a bun like the picture on the right are super cute!

Which is your go-to hairstyle?  Let me know insiders! 🙂

Hairstyles That Beat Humidity

When the summer humidity takes over, it can be next to impossible to tame your frizzy locks!  It’s such a bummer to spend the time curling or straightening your hair only for it to get ruined!  I’ve got a few great hairstyles that won’t look bad when hit with a little humidity.  It’s time to get familiar with your new favorite summer dos!Chelsea Crockett- humid hair

  • The top knot is the ultimate humidity fighting hair style! It’s meant to look messy, so as pieces start to come out or frizz, it’ll look like it was supposed to be that way!  Try it half-up or all the way up for a cool summer look!
  • A pony tail is always a safe bet when trying to beat humidity, but can often be boring. Spice up the traditional look by loosely braiding one side of your hair and combining it with the other side for a half-braided pony! You can also do this with a low bun!
  • If you want to wear your hair completely down, opt for curls! First apply Moroccan oil to keep your hair smooth before drying and curling it.  Last, apply a humidity fighting hairspray.  Your hair will most likely fall throughout the day, so curl your hair tight for it to last longer.  By the end of the day you should have loose beach waves.
  • A loose side braid is always great for outdoor weather! Try a fishtail or traditional braid to one side and then pull certain pieces to spread out the braid.

Don’t let the summer humidity keep you for embracing your beautiful hair!

XOXO,

Are you wondering what fall trends are in store for your luscious locks? I’ve got a list that will give you an inside look on what trends are to come this Fall.

Braids! This Fall, braids are coming in hot! Braids are a great way to pull your hair out of your face and make a fashion statement at the same time! Perfect! Some great braids are fishtail braids, French braids, Dutch braids, and just your everyday original three stranded braid!

Beach waves! I looove this trend! It looks so effortless and can make you look like you just came from a day at the beach. Some ways to achieve this look are to apply “Not Your Mother’s” Beach Babe spray to your hair (grab it here:http://tiny.cc/NotYourMothers_BeachSpray). It works amazing and smells like coconuts! Bonus! Another way is to loosely curl a few strands of your hair, let them cool, and then brush them out. Easy!

Low Buns! Just by pulling your hair into a bun at the nape of your neck can instantly give you a sweet, put-together look. You can do this with a regular bun, or you could even braid your hair and then twist THAT into a low bun!

Believe it or not, homecoming is just around the corner! You’ve got a lot of preparation to get to! There are so many things to think about: the dress, the group your going with, your DATE, where your going to take pictures…the last thing you want to be worrying about is your hair! I am here to help you pick out your perfect homecoming hair style, because you’ve got enough to worry about as it is!

  1. Heart shaped face: Ladies with this face shape have a broad forehead and then their face starts to taper from the cheeks photo (7)and jaw line down to the chin. I have this face shape! Since the lower part of the face is narrower compared to the upper portion, you want to draw attention to the lower part of the face. The best hair-do to help you achieve this goal is the half-up half-down look. Curl all of your hair and then pull the upper part towards the crown back while the rest falls gently around your shoulders.
  2. Round face: For my round faced babes, your goal should be to take attention away from the cheeks and ears. This will make your face not look wider than it really is! One way to do this is to draw attention up and elongate your face. A hair style that helps you do this is an intricate bun or sleek high pony tail. Never under estimate the impact of a strategically placed pony tail.
  3. Narrow or oval face: You lucky ducks have it made. The shape of your face is ideal because the proportions are just right. Truth is, you can do just about anything to your hair. The updoo that will highlight your beautifully shaped face is to pull all of your hair back into a bun. You can leave some loose wispy hairs down to give you a more wistful look if you prefer.

I hope this helps you choose which homecoming hair style is right for you! I am sure you will look gorgeous no matter what style you choose.

XOXO, Chels

Who loves cotton candy? I am obsessed with the fluffy, magical stuff. Here is a hair style totally inspired by it! It is fun, flirty, and totally adorable! Here is how YOU can do your very own “cotton candy” bun!Cotton-Candy-E-Liquid

Tease up some of the hair at the base so that you can give your roots a little volume. Pull your hair into a high pony tail.
Spray hair spray throughout your whole pony. Tease the whole thing, make sure the whole pony tail is all teased up.
Once your hair is thoroughly teased, twist it around to make it into a bun. Take some bobby pins and secure the bun once you have twisted it up completely. Spritz the whole thing with a bit of hair spray to set it.

Viola! Now you have a cute, sweet hair style that will keep the hair off of your neck and keep you cool, but also give an innocent flare to your ensemble. Do YOU like this hair style? Comment below!

XOXO, Chels

Sometimes life can be hectic and being a girl doesn’t help out.  Between blow drying and styling your hair, putting on your makeup, and picking out the perfect outfit, a time crunch is the last thing you need!  So what do you do when you have just enough time to shower, but no time to do your hair?  No worries!  I’ve got the perfect solution to styling wet hair!

If you have a long drive to your final destination, curl your hair through air drying.  Once in the car, divide your hair into 4-6 sections.  Twist each section and slowly lay them down.  Once each section is twisted, try not to move your head too much so the hair stays in place.  Once you reach your destination, shake out your hair to reveal soft, pretty curls!Chelsea Crockett- wet bun

If you want a more professional look, try wearing your hair up.  Since wet hair stays in place easier, try a twisted bun.  Brush all of your hair up into a high pony tail and twist your hair tight until it coils into a bun.  Secure it with bobby pins and you’re good to go!  The easiest of all wet hair styles is a simple side braid.  As your hair dries, you can take it out of the braid to reveal wavy hair or leave it in!

Next time you’re in a hurry, don’t panic! Styling your hair in a flash has never been easier!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Everyone loves a good top-knot bun hair-do, am I right? This style is safe for just about any occasion! I found a way to spruce up your basic every day top-knot. Introducing: The twisted top-knot! Here is how to achieve this unique look.

First, pull half of your hair up into a high pony, and then do the same with the other half, so you have two high-ponies. Take one of your pony tails and divide it into two sections. Twist each section, and then twist the two topknot6sections around each other. Secure the twist on the end with an elastic. Clip the twist off to the side so that it doesn’t come un-twisted, and then repeat the above steps to the other ponytail. Once you have the end of both twisted ponies, one in each hand, then twist them around each other until you have formed your top-knot! Once they are fully twisted, pin the twists to your head with bobby pins! This hair style can be achieved super quick, so it is perfect for mornings that you are running a bit behind, or those mornings you just don’t feel like working too hard on your tresses.

Add spunk to your ensemble with this cute ‘do!

XOXO, Chels

Gym Hairstyles, So You Don’t Have to Wash It After

You really want to hit the gym, but remembered you have somewhere to be shortly after.  You’d only have 30 minutes to get ready; therefore you wouldn’t have enough time to wash your hair.  What do you do?!  Luckily, it is possible to have a cute hair style after hitting the gym and here’s how:

When you start to sweat, you scalp gets warm which creates a mold.  Because of this, there’s a large chance that your hair will stay the way you had it when you worked out.  It’s important to plan ahead!  If you want your hair wavy, then wear it in a French braid.  You could even start the braid at your bangs for an allover wavy look.    If you want your hair curly, then twist your hair into a top knot bun and secure it with bobby pins.  This way, you will avoid creases throughout your hair. Chelsea Crockett- french braid at the gym

Keeping your hair straight is a bigger challenge.  Wear your hair in a low pony tail using a fabric hair tie to avoid dents.  If you have bangs and want them to lay flat after your workout, pin them to the side using a bobby pin.  You can even part your bangs down the middle and secure them to each side.

Next time you think about skipping the gym because of an event, remember these simple hair tricks.  You have no excuses now!

Emergency! Bad Hair Day: 3 Quick Hairstyles for a Formal Event

 I think we’re all in agreement that a bad hair day counts as an emergency… A girl’s worst nightmare!  Especially when the event you have is formal or dressy, with no time to fix up your hair.  I decided to put together three easy, on-the-go hair styles that can substitute for any fancy up-do!

            Style number one… a high bun, or sock bun!  Chelsea Crockett - High BunAlthough the traditional sock bun is still cute and fashionable, I like to put a little spin on it and create a high bun.  It’s almost the same thing as a sock bun, but with a slight different look to it.  I have a tutorial on my channel titled “Easy High Bun.”  Check that out and you’re set!  It’s super simple and non-time consuming.

            Style number two… a slicked back ponytail, AKA the Kardashian ponytail :)!  This one works best with longer hair.  To start out, you’ll need a ponytail, bobby pins, and some hairspray.  Leave out a small section of hair at the back of your head.  Pull your hair back into a high ponytail, making sure the elastic is tight around your hair.  After, wrap the sectioned piece of hair around the tie and secure it with a couple bobby pins.  If you have fly-a-ways, spray them down with hairspray so your ponytail looks clean and slick.

            Last, but not least, style number 3… braided half-up.  Part your hair where you normally do and take one, two-inch front sections from each side of your part.  Braid both pieces and secure them together in the back with bobby pins or a small hair tie. 

                        Hope this helps next time you’re a little off schedule!

Wanna know what the fall 2013 hair trends are? Good, cuz I am about to tell you!

Messy Beach Bun: These buns look effortless and wind-blown! You can achieve this look by sectioning off the hair in front of your head (where your bangs would be) and pulling the rest of your hair up into a ponytail just below the crown. Twist the pony into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. Next, curl the hair in the front loosely and then randomly pin them around the bun in the back.chelsea crockett messy bun

Upside Down French Braid: I am in love with this trend! It is so stinkin cute. It is not as hard as it looks! Just flip your head upside down and start the braid at the nape of your neck. Braid it until you get to your crown. Gather the rest of your hair and combine it all into a ponytail. Wrap the ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Viola!upside down french braid chelsea crockett

Braided Headband: This style is so classy! How do you do it? First, part your hair down the middle. Then make a small braid on each ear starting behind each ear. Pull them over each other and pin them tightly against the top of the head.chelsea crockett braided headband

I hope these work for ya!

            Hey girls!  We all know how much I love trying out new hairstyles and what’s a better time than summer?  Whether you wear it up or down, there’s always a cute and stylish way to show off those beautiful locks!

            One of the first looks I go to is the messy or high bun.  They’re easy to throw up and work with any outfit.  One of the best things about a bun is that it’s okay for them to look messyWink.  Just throw it up and wear it how you want!

            Another one of my on-the-go styles is a side braid.  Along with being super easy, you can make it your own by doing the many different styles there are.  Fishtailing and French braiding are just a couple ideas on how to make your braid fun and unique!

            Chelsea Crockett - Beach WavesLast but definitely not least, are beach waves.  I absolutely love this look because it gives off the summer feel and adds the beachy look to your sun kissed tan.  At almost any beauty salon you can find a spray to help give you that ocean air vibe.

            These are just a few summer styles for you to try out this season! Hope this helps!

                                                            Locks of love! – Chels
