Do you ever get tired of wearing your hair down or having it hanging in your face? I know I do, and with the warm weather closing in you are going to want your locks off of your neck. Here is a way to dress up your regular every day braid.

Tease the crown of your hair and spray it with dry shampoo to give it some volume. Part your hair into three dad739579455313fbd5a0166eefa9b08sections and braid the middle section. Secure the braid with a clear elastic. Then, take all of the sections and braid them together. Secure the end of your final braid with a clear elastic. Pull the braid apart a little bit so that it widens and loosens, giving it a wistful, effortless look. Spritz your look with some hair spray and then you are done!

I love braids because they are so effortless and classic. Try it out and comment below!

Curl Your Hair…And Make It Last!

Are you tired of crying tears of frustration when your perfectly curled locks lose their bounce after 30 minutes? One of the most frustrating things for a girl is when you spend hours curling and styling your hair, just to watch it fall out faster than you can say “Beautyliciousinsider”. Here are a few tips on how to make your curls last!

  1. Use volumizing shampoo: A great tip for girls who have thin or flat hair is to use volumizing shampoo and tumblr_m8qgvzgWPc1r44f5bconditioner to prep your hair for styling.
  2. Trim: When you have a lot of dead ends, it really prevents your hair from holding a curl. Healthy hair holds a curl so much better!
  3. Curl on unwashed hair: It may sound weird, but that is what the experts recommend! If you are curling on clean hair, you’ll need to add in much more curling cream or mousse than required, which weighs the hair down.

Hopefully these tips will have you rockin bouncy, lasting curls for hours on end!

Who likes spending hours brushing, drying, and then curling their hair? Not many people enjoy this loooonnngg process, but they love the end result! What If I told you that there was a way to curl your hair using nothing but paper towels?  There is a new method of curling hair that I just discovered that takes about 20 minutes to accomplish and doesn’t damage your hair whatsoever! Ladies and gentlemen,  I introduce paper towel curls!

Wash and comb your hair as you usually would. Let it dry a little bit so it isn’t sopping wet.  Start taking sections of your hair, the smaller the section the tighter the curl, and roll the hair the hair into 2 inch strips of paper towel just like you roll a curler. Tie the ends of the paper towel together tight so that it will hold all night.  The paper towels will absorb the water in your hair, so it will dry overnight. In the morning, unwrap the paper towels and DSC_0088presto! Beautiful bouncy curls. Take your fingers and run them through the curls to loosen them up a bit, and mist them with hairspray to help them stay in all day. You can save the strips of paper towel for next time you want to do this hair style so you don’t have to cut the strips all over again.

This hair style saves so much time, and it doesn’t require you to use heat so you can save your hair some damage! Score! If you try this hair style, comment below and let me know how it works out for you!

Fake A Long Pony!

Do you have shoulder length hair and long to have a long, luscious pony tail like the ones you see in the movies? I have a secret trick on how to trick people into thinking that you have a longer, fuller pony tail. Check it out!

First, loosely curl your hair to give it some body. Next, tease the crown of your hair and smooth it out. Pull the top half of your hair up into a high pony tail. Next, pull the bottom half of your hair into another ponytail in the middle of your hair. Spread the top ponytail out so that it covers up the bottom ponytail. Because you have a low pony on the bottom, it makes you look like you have looooong hair! Cool illusion, a4670dd63d87a6dfd550c1dc20635583right? Tie a sleek bow onto the top pony to add a girly touch to it! I have worn this chic style to everything from weddings to church!

Want to spruce up your look? I know sometimes get bored with mine, too. Here are a few ways to go from “blah” to “tada!”.

 1. Go short for the day! Pin the ends of your hair under to create a fake bob. I love this idea! Because I have long hair, creating an illusion that I have short hair would be really neat. This is also a great way to keep the hair off your neck if it is hot outside. It can also be a very romantic-looking hairstyle if you leave a few whispy pieces of hair out and then loosely curl them.

2. Try bangs! But try clip in bangs before you totally commit to them. You want to try clip-on bangs before cutting your hair so that you know whether bangs will look good on you or not! Hair takes a LONG time to grow back, so you don’t want to cut it and then hate it! If you have bangs and you don’t like them, you have a few options on how to hide them. One option is to pull them back into a French braid. The next is to split them down the middle and pin each half, letting the rest of your hair fall over them.

3. Don’t have time to wash your hair? Try a waterfall braid, which works better on dirty hair anyway. Want to spruce up your braid? Weave a ribbon into your braid. Black looks chic, while bright colors pop. Another great braid is the headband braid, which holds your hair back away from your face.

Need some quick volume for your hair? Are you always short on time? Well here is a super quick, super easy way to get fast volume that is sure to add sass to any outfit. Want the deets? Scroll on!

Okay, so is it just me or do some of you have moms who walk around the house wearing ridiculous rollers in their hair? Or worse, do they drive you hair rollersplaces while wearing them? Have no fear, I am not going to make you wear rollers out in public, but I am going to suggest you wear them in the comfort of your home! The best way to get super volume in your hair is to take your damp but almost dry hair and put the top layer in giant Velcro rollers. Use metal roller clips to hold the rollers in your hair.  Once you have the hair in rollers, use a blow dryer to warm the hair in the curlers and blow dry them for about 5 minutes. After you have blow dried them, leave the curlers in for another 10 minutes to let the hair cool down. Spritz them with hair spray and then take the rollers out. You should have some loose, large curls/waves. Rock this easy, voluptuous hair style wherever you go to show super sass!

XOXO, Chels
