Hair Tutorial | VERY Easy Summer Braided Bun Knot

Hello Lovelies! I've FINALLY got around to doing a blog post and what better way to start than on a SUPER easy hair tutorial. It's as simple as it looks (excuse my dark roots, lets just ignore them shall we). All you will need is a hair elastic and a bobby-pin and you will be good to go.

1). Take a big section of hair and tie it with a hair elastic.
2). Now plait the ponytail you just created, braiding half way down, grab one of the plait strands ready for step 3.
3). Holding one strand of the braid in one hand, push the rest of the plait upwards towards to hair elastic.
4). It'll look like this, like a wonky sausage.
5). Now wrap this around your hair elastic - creating the bun.
6). Bobby-pin the braided bun in place and that's it! Ta-da!

And that's it, now we all can pretend we are the Kardashian's in no more than 2 minutes.

Two simple hair tutorials | Perfect for a wedding

As it's getting near "wedding season" I thought i'd show you two simple hair-dos you can do on yourself. One using the pull through braid technique and the other is a super easy pony tail. 
The beautiful hair accessory i use in both of these tutorials is from Johnny Loves Rosie. Lets get started!

1). Start by separating a section of hair just above your ears ( using your thumbs going from your ears to the middle of your head is the easiest way to do it. Then secure it with a clear elastic.
2). Now divide the pony tail you just created into two.
3). Grab the first mini pony tail and tie a hair elastic about two finger widths down.
4). Clip that out of the way like so.
5). Now, do the same to the second split of the pony tail, tie an elastic band 2 finger widths down.
6). Make a little opening with your fingers in between the two hair elastics.
7). Unclip the top ponytail and pull it through the opening you made in step number 6.
8). It should look something like this!
9). You'll now need to grab the hair elastic that is at the front and clip it out the way.
10). And tie a new elastic band on the ponytail you created underneath.
11). It should look something like this! (don't worry if it looks messy).
12). Now pull the shinanigens out of it, pulling each loop upwards and outwards.
13). Once you've got your desired look, use a hair accessory of your choice to cover the hair band.
14). Tada, you should be done, the trick is to pull it apart as much as possible.

1). Start by curling your hair, i used a 1" barrel curler. Then pop your hair into a mid-high pony tail.
2). Grab a medium to small section of hair from the pony tail.
3). And wrap it around your hair elastic and then clip it in place. I clipped the wrapped hair under the pony tail.
4). Pull the hair from the crown forward to create more body.
5). This is what is may look like, it's completely up to you how much you pull it apart etc.
6). (Optional) Use a hair accessory over the pony tail and clip it in place.
7). + 8). And you are done. It's as simple as that.

Hair Tutorial | Pull-through chunky braid/plait

Hello! I know, I know, it's been nearly two months since I last blogged. TWO MONTHS HOW RUBBISH. This year I'm determined to post regularly, starting from today. So what better way to start off 2016 than with a hair tutorial (woohoo!) and it's a braid - surprise, surprise.

This was the first time I tried this method of doing a pull through plait as i'd seen it around so much and i must say it looks way more complicated to do than it actually is! All you'll need is a large clip and a few clear elastics. So lets get started...

1. Start by making a section at the top of your head, and tie it into a small pony tail.
2. Clip the ponytail you just made out the way so you can grab another section just below this.
3. Now create a new ponytail just under your first one. Unclip the top pony and you're ready to go!
4. Split your first section into two. Just like picture 4.
5. Grab your clip and clip up the lower pony tail in between the two sections you just made.
6. Next, grab the two sections over this and tie with a clear or hair coloured elastic.
7. It should look something like this.
8. Now continue going down your hair, repeating steps 3-7. Collect more hair from the sides as you do.
9. Always remember to clip the solid ponytail up in between the split ponytail.
10. Continue down as far as you fancy, then secure the whole plait with an hair elastic.
11. Here's my favourite bit, slowly pull out the plait as much as you want, the bigger the better!
12. You should now be done!

This looks complex (but it's easy once you have it) and I hope my instructions were clear. Hope you all had a fab holiday and i'm looking forward to 2016 with you guys!
