Schools back in session and that means back to the grind.
Switching over from summer time leisure to juggling school,
work, a social life and getting to the gym can be tricky. During
that time, we are here to make your life a little easier while
helping you look more fabulous…it’s a win-win, we know!
You may have heard that you shouldn’t wash your hair every
day, and that’s true, however some people can’t even bear the
thought. For me dirty hair means 20 minutes extra in bed, but
no matter what your hair washing schedule may be, I’m going
to do two things for you:
1. Introduce you to your new BFF – dry shampoo.
2. Give you five different hair styles to get you through the
week without washing your hair, all but once.
Whether you rock these cute styles yourself or use them on
your little ones before you send them on the bus, I promise you
these are all simple to do and you might just have the best hair
in the office or classroom!
As Sunday night rolls around and you prep yourself for
the week ahead, give yourself an invigorating shampoo
with Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoo and conditioner.
This is where most the work goes in; time to blow dry
your hair and break out your curling iron. Curl your hair
a little tighter to give it room to loosen up and fall.
When you’re done, twist your hair up onto the top of
your head; this will help keep your curls and avoid bed
head, in the morning.
When Monday morning rolls around, shake your hair out and touch up anything that needs
fixing. Flip your head upside down and spray it with hairspray. The lived-in look is in, so
don’t worry about it being perfect!
On Tuesday, a simple half up half down is always a good go to. Wear it all back off your face or leave a little bang
down. Just make sure you take a piece of your pony tail to wrap it around your
hair tie to hide it.
*Quick tip – crisscrossing two bobby pins is the way to hold anything in your hair.
*Break out that dry shampoo whenever you need girl! Shake and spray around your hair line, part and in the crown area. Letting it sit for a few and then shake your hair out. Rub it all
in and just like that you have fresh looking locks my gal pals.
Add a little spice to your Wednesday with
a side braid with a twist. Before starting
with your average French braid, twist
from the thinner side of your hair along
the nape of your head until all your hair is
gathered to one side. Then, split your hair
in three and do a normal French braid half
way down; then, tie off your braid using
the hide the hair tie trick! If your hair is
long enough, finish it off with a fishtail
braid for a style filled with texture.
Thursday is a time for Buns Buns Buns! Place all your hair behind you and split your hair into three pony tails. Starting with the middle one, split that pony tail into two twisting them all the way to the bottom and securing it with hair an elastic. Then, twist each section up, like a ballerina bun, and pin it against your head. Do the same for the other two pony tails and pin the buns in place. Finally, pinch and pull at the buns to make them fuller.
Push through your dirtiest hair, knowing it is Friday; but know that dirty hair makes braiding easier. Adding one or two mohawk braids
to a simple messy bun makes it less messy, and trendier! By making a middle part, braid two braids going back, adding to it until you get to the crown of your head; then finish
braiding what hair you have and secure it with an elastic. Gather the hair from behind your ears up to the crown of your head, leaving the braids out, make a messy bun. Finally take the two braids, and twist them around the bun then pin them in place.
So, there you go, girls! Go ahead and give it a try… don’t worry you can thank me later! Share these cute styles on your social media! #VRSelfie #osceolawoman
