How To Fishtail Braid – Hairstyle Photo Tuorial

Hair tutorial time! My brain is completely fried at the moment, so many things to organise and do, I think I need a life overhaul! Being a bit busy means less time for pretty hair, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have cute hair. Fishtail braids look really complicated but once you understand the basic idea they are quick and easy to do!





Here is a video version for those of you who prefer them and the downloadable version is at the end as usual:

So let’s get started!

How To Do Temporary Hair Colour With Pastels


It’s been a really crazy week and between everything else I’ve been getting the next batch of these hair tutorials ready. Today’s tutorial is something that might help those of you thinking of dying your hair a crazy colour. I get quite a few comments and emails every saying “I want to do my hair like yours but I can’t because of school/work/something else”. Well this is a great way to see if it looks good before you commit or do it for the weekend and then wash it out before Monday!

The video version of this will be added as soon as I finish editing!

Let’s do it!

How To Do A Quiff With A Pouf – Hairstyle Tutorial

Has it really already been another week *_* God this year is going so quickly!

Today’s hairstyle is a classic pouf with a quiffed fringe. This style is great for school because it’s very quick to do and you can pin the bottom hair however you like to meet rules like “hair must be tied back” etc. You can even pull the bottom hair into an updo at the back and make it suitable for work.



How To Do A Plaited Headband With A Pouf Hairstyle Tutorial

Hair tutorial time again 😀 I am pretty happy with how regularly I’ve been able to get these done, the new set up makes me so much more motivated. Now I just need to finalise my video set up with some new lighting and I’ll be set!

Today I’m showing a basic small pouf style with two plaited headbands.


Start with clean brushed hair.


Pull out a small piece of hair from the nape of your neck.


Now plait down the whole length of the hair and tie off.


Repeat with another piece of hair on the other side of your head.


Put those to the side of the moment while we make the pouf.

Pull a large section of hair up from the top of your head.


Pull it forward on an angle and then use your brush to lightly tease/back comb the back of the section.plaited-headband-instructions21

Now fold it backwards gently so the pouf is as high as you like and pin in place. I like to shape it with my hands so it’s nice and round. You can fluff it up with your fingers too. If you don’t like the shape just pull it up and start again.


Now grab one of the little plaits and pull it up and over your head to the other side. It should sit at the part between fringe/bangs and pouf. You can pull the side bits of hair behind the plait for a smooth look or leave them in front for a soft look. Pin the plait on the other side of your head, mine reaches just behind my ear but as long as it goes over half way you should be fine.


Now pull the other plait to the other side. it should cover the end of the first plait. Tuck the end of it under the first plait and pin in place.


If the ends are really obvious then pin a little of your loose hair over the top. Give the whole thing a burst of hairspray.


And that’s it! I like to curl the ends of the loose hair so it’s a very floaty soft look but I think it works really well straight too.




I hope you enjoyed the tutorial 😀

I’m going to continue doing these as regularly as possible so if you have any hairstyle requests please let me know!


Vintage Rolled Vintage Hairstyle Photo Tutorial



Yay for more hairstyles 😀 This one is a big rolled vintagey style. I did a video on this one quite a while ago which is at the bottom of the post along with the downloadable version!

Let’s get into it, start with brushed hair.



You will need a hair sausage or something which can be put in the middle of the roll to pad it out. I did a tutorial a while ago on how to make your own sausage so check that out over here.



Start by brushing your hair backwards leaving a small section on either side of your face.



Decide roughly where you want the end result to sit on your head.



Gently hold the hair up like this:




If you don’t have a hair sausage you can use pretty much anything in that shape. Even a couple of clean socks rolled up will do 😉

Flip the ends of the hair over the sausage like this:


Gently roll the sausage and hair towards your head.



And it should end up like this:



Fluff out the sides so it covers the sausage completely. Pin it in place using bobby pins.



Now give it a a decent helping of hair spray.



Next curl the sections of hair you left down at the front.



You can leave them down like this as a softer version of the look.



Otherwise you can just fold the hair up so it follows the same curve of the roll and pin in place. It should hide the ends of the sausage completely.



Now just style your fringe.



As a finishing touch I like to add a some flowers at the top of the roll or a string of pearls.



All done!


This is a great style for summer as it keeps the hair off your neck.



For those of you who prefer videos here it is! I’ve been having some technical issues with embedding videos so if it doesn’t show up just leave me a comment and I’ll get it up again >_<
