Hair…

This week I’ve been trialling some new hair styles I found on pinterest but never got around to actually doing them. What I find about most pinterest hair styles is that they all begin with blow drying and curling your hair, or just the first part?! I for one don’t have time to blow dry my hair, unless its a super special occasion! My hair is thick, naturally curly / frizzy and reasonably long so it takes FOREVER to blow dry and style. I chose three styles that are shown on straight hair to see how they would look with curls.

This is my hair – no style

Style 1

Take two sections from the front of your hair and plait them, softly, either side.

I liked how this turned out, however the plaits aren’t as noticeable against messy curls.

Style 2

Take one strip of hair from the centre front and french braid it. Secure with elastic and repeat 4 more times, two on each side (like shown).

This I also liked, I think this looks just as good with curly hair, but it would be even better if my hair was pink!

Style 3

Take two large sections of hair from the front, twist into a small bun on each side. Secure with elastic and pins.

This is my fave! I think it looks just as cute with the curls and I feel like a kitten πŸ˜‰

Definitely worth trying these out, I think braids and buns are going to become bigger trends so get in there first!
