I’ve been wanting to venture in to more beauty and life style/enteratining posts for you girls and today’s post was one I was SO excited to put together! I’ve become a creature of habit when it comes to my hair styles. Long Beachy Waves are my go to because they’re easy and flattering but it was SO nice to step out of my comfort zone and try a few new styles that I ended up LOVING!
First up let’s talk velvet bows. You’ve probably seen them all over Instagram and Pinterest and how freaking cute are they? I was dying to wear one ( unleashing my inner 12 year old;) and thought it would be so fun and playful for the holidays.
I’ve seen most people rock them with a pony tail so I wanted to do something slightly different. I went with a top of the head teased half pony and this pretty blue ribbon. It’s SUPER easy to do at home. Just curl you hair, tease your roots then bring the top part into a pony and add the ribbon! You can find velvet ribbon at you local craft store but the one in today’s post (linked below) was so much easier because it’s a pre made hair tie. There’s no need to worry about cutting , retying or perfecting the bow. Once it’s in, you’re ready to roll.
This next look is something that was totally out of my comfort zone. I RARELY wear my hair all up but this was such an unexpected pleasant surprise. …..
Now I wish I could take credit for this hairstyle but I DO NOT have these kind of hair skillzzz 😉 My girl Erika at 1011 Makeup (if you girls are local check her insta!) whipped this up for me in literally in 5 minutes…she’s that good! but if you girls would like to see some snaps/videos/tutorials of these styles just let me know because that’s something we’ve been talking about doing.
We went ultra feminine with this volumized whimsical braid and added in these dainty pearl headbands. I haven’t worn a head band in YEARS but I just thought these were so delicate and romantic that I wanted to layer two together.
After my hair was teased, curled and the headbands were in, I kind of wanted to just wear them like that but i’m glad we swept it all back and went full force with this braid. So fun right?!
and lastly another cute braid we did here incorporating another pretty velvet now….
Sweet and Simple!
Okay let me know if you girls are feeling these posts? If you would like to see more of these beauty segments and or if you’d want to see some mini videos on how to create them?!
