Step 1.

Pull your hair back and secure with a rubber band.  I prefer using the clear rubber bands especially if you have light colored hair.

Making Three Braids

Step 2:

Divide hair roughly into three sections and make three braids.  Secure each one with a rubber band.

Three Braids

Making Rosette

Step 3:

Take each braid separately and wrap it in a circle.  Tuck the end underneath.  Pin the rosette a couple of times.  I use two mirrors when doing this so I can see how the rosettes are turning out.  Adjust the braids as needed to make them look like rosettes.

Final BraidThere you have it!  A very simple and romantic look!  It’s so simple and just perfect for the holidays or any time.

5 Min. Top Knot

final image

Here’s a really simple hair tutorial for a messy top knot.  These are great for those days when your hair isn’t cooperating or you just don’t want to deal with your hair.

Step 1:

hair pulled up

Put your hair in a very high ponytail on the top of your head.

Step 2:

flipped ponytail

Flip your pony tail over and take a comb and tease your hair.

Step 3:

flipping over again

 Flip your ponytail back over.

Step 4:wrapping top knot

Wrap your hair around the base of your ponytail.  Make sure to wrap this pretty loosely (not too tight).

hair clips

Step 5:

securing top knot

Secure your top knot with bobby pins or magic grip hair pins.  I find that because I have so much hair, the magic grip hair pins are perfect for the weight of my hair.  I also don’t have to use an excessive amount of bobby pins.  So, if you have a lot of hair I highly recommend trying the magic grip hair pins.  I got mine at Sally’s Beauty Supply Store.

Adjust your messy top knot.  Pull at the sides a little bit if you need too.

There you have it!  So, simple and easy to do.

Easy Swirled French Braid


final image copyThis is a great version of the french braid.  It literally takes 5 minutes to do.  This hair style is perfect for parties, weddings, or for any hot summer day.

Step 1:

step 1 of the swirled french braid

 Start by parting your hair over to the right side for the french braid.  You are working at a diagonal  across your head.  If you don’t know how to do a french braid, take three strands of hair.  As you braid with the three strands, you gather more hair before you work it into your braid.  There are great tutorials out there for you for the basic french braid.

Step 2:

step 2 of the swirled french braid

Continue the french braid at a diagonal.  You can see I kept pulling the hair over from the left side up and over.  You will need a comb to make sure you hair lays down flat.  Finish the braid and braid all the way down.

Step 3:

step 3 of the swirled french braid

Pull the braid up and twist it around.

Step 4:

step 4 of the swirled french braid

Pin and tuck the remaining hair underneath.  I always use two mirrors to check out how the hair style came together and I make adjustments.

Pin a flower in the center if you have one or just leave it as is. Enjoy!


Runway Ready Look In Minutes!

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to wrap your ponytail and make it look sleek and awesome!

Step 1: Start by putting your hair in a ponytail.

Step #2: Take a small section of your ponytail.  I try to grab the section from underneath my ponytail.  I know from experience that my hair will end, after I have wrapped it around a couple of times, at the underside of my ponytail.  This is ultimately where you want you want the end of your hair to end up.  This may take a little practice on your part.  You will have to figure out with the length of your hair, how many times it will wrap,  and exactly where to grab your section of hair (side/bottom) depending on the your length.

Step 3:  Pull your hair up and wrap around your ponytail.

Step 4:  Bobby pin your hair underneath into the bottom of your ponytail.

Step 5:

There you have it!  A sleek and modern runway look in minutes.  Hope your enjoy it!
