Flicked Fringe Retro Hairstyle Tutorial Video!

I don’t usually talk about sucky things happening here but this week has been an absolute bust. I haven’t been able to finish anything at all that I started >_<

Between catching a cold while standing on a freezing air field tarmac on a photography job with James, craft projects failing miserably, several friends having major life crisis’s and illnesses, family members being in hospital, Lottie stealing some panadol and spending all day throwing up… it’s just been kind of a sucky 2 weeks.

So instead of spending the night editing and then posting one of the craft tutorials that failed fairly miserably I’m calling today a wash and going to bed early to kick my cold and regroup so I can do better tomorrow!

Sometimes rather than trying to push through crappiness you just need to reset your clock, watch a movie, eat some junk food and wake up for a new day tomorrow!

In lieu of a real post here’s a hair tutorial video I forgot to post last week!

Today we’re doing a style which has a little bit of a retro twist! The deep part with a flicked fringe is really fun and you can dress it up or down.

How To Do A Twisted Plait Hairstyle – Video Tutorial

Happy Monday!

This week’s video tutorial was a reader request. I wore this style in a couple of outfit posts and the hair was a lot more eye catching than I thought it would be. It’s so easy that I usually wear it on my lazy days XD

Hope you enjoy!


Written transcript:
Hey besties!
Welcome to another hair tutorial!
This one is a viewer request from an outfit post I did a while ago while I was wearing it!
Twisted Plaits
Start with some clean, brushed hair and divide it into two sections.
Take the first section, divide it into three sections, then plait it down to the very bottom.
Make sure you start the plait fairly high up, just behind the top of your ear.
You want the plaits to be quite tight otherwise the end result won’t stick up correctly.
Now secure it in place with a hair tie at the end!
Now repeat on the other side!
Plait! Plait like a swiss mountain girl in a fairy tale!
Secure it in place and you’re halfway there! Or you know, leave it like this and call it a day! Lazy win!
Now take the first plait and twist it backwards as tightly as you feel comfortable.
Then roll it around it’s self into a little bun and then pull the hair tie off at the end.
Once it’s off, continue wrapping the hair tightly around the base.
As you go, pull the plait out a little bit and it will form a twist, like this!
Once you’re finished put a hair tie back on it to keep that sucker in place!
The end result should look like this.
Now (obviously) repeat on the other side!
Twist it backwards…
…roll it up on itself…
…pull it out a little bit…
…and hair tie it in place!
Adjust it as necessary so they are the same length.
Accessory time! You can go big with a hair flower but I like to wear this with a simple pearl headband.
Tadaa! Cute, adorable and a little bit different to plain old buns or plain old plaits.
This looks a bit different because of my gradient, but it looks GREAT with dark hair colours.
Let me know if you give this one a go and thanks so much for watching, bye!

How To Dye Pink Gradient/Ombre Hair Extensions

I was sent some human hair extensions to play with by VPFashion so I set about dying them to match my actual hair colour. I ordered the lightest blonde but my hair is almost white so I needed to bleach then add the pink over the top as I do on my normal hair.

The results were very good and I had a lot of fun playing around with them. I will wear them quite often to give my hair more volume in places.

You can an $8 discount on the VPFashion site by entering violetlebeaux1031 in the “Referred By YTB Guru” option when checking out.

Pink Gradient/Ombre Hair Extension Instructions!

Hello! Today I’m going to show you how I dyed my hair extensions in the same sort of pink gradient that my real hair is.
I love my hair but sometimes it’s nice to have extra length and volume so… HAIR EXTENSIONS!
I’m using human hair extensions provided by VPFashion.
These ones are #613A- White Blonde. Use the code “violetlebeaux1031” to get $8 off your order.
Link in the description.
These extensions are great quality but the colour is just not quite right.
I used the extensions, my usual blonde dye, my pink dye, scissors, a brush, some paper and my phone as a timer.
Firstly, lay out some paper to protect your surface from the dye because it’s going to get messy!
I would think that most of you would do this in your bathroom rather than your living room so it probably wouldn’t be nessecary.
The next thing I did was mix up the bleach. Please read and follow the instructions that come with the bleach you’re using.

For the rest of the written instructions check my blog or turn on closed captions!

Easy Rockabilly Loop Hairstyle Instructions!

Good morning! Today’s style which is a little rockabilly inspired!
Let’s get started, you can do this with curly or straight hair, just make sure that you brush it before you start.
You want it to be nice and smooth so that the loops are smooth to.
Grab a section of hair from the top of your head on one side and twist it around your fingers to form a loop.
Make sure that the tail of your loop faces the back of your head.
Push the loop down so it sits flat against your scalp like this.
And then pin it in place.
You want the pins to be inside the loop so that you can hide them later.
I used dark pins so that you can see what I’m doing, but I suggest you use pins that match your hair.
Brush the hair so that it hides all the pins and then hairspray in place.
Grab the section of hair underneath the first one you just did.
Make sure that you have the tail of the first loop included in this section of hair too.
Pull it upwards and form it into a loop underneath the first one that you made.
Again, the tail should be pointing to the back of your head.
Pin it in place.
The pink bits of my hair look cool when they are twisted around like this, kind of like candy!
Brush so you can’t see any hair pins, then give it a blast of hairspray.
Tadaa! Really that’s it!
All you need now is a cute hair accessory.
You can add as many loops as you want, but I like to dress it up with a big flower.
You can put in the front like this, but does hide the loops a little bit.
So if you want to show off the loops, pop it at the back.
Very cute!
Now you’re ready for a night of rockabilly music.
Or you know, cam whoring and posting it on instagram!

Hope you enjoyed the video and see you again next week, bye!

The Great Gatsby Inspired Hair/Make Up – 1920’s In 20 Minutes

This is such a fun look and really doesn’t take too long to do! I had way too much fun making this video including doing the Charleston for far longer than I actually included in the video XD

Hope you enjoyed it!

Transcript:
Today I was a bit inspired by the remake of The Great Gatsby so I wanted to do a look suited to that. Neither my look or the looks in the movie are particularly accurate for the time period but they sure are fun!

The Great Gatsby Inspired Hair/Make Up Instructions:

Hello, today we’re going to have some fun with a look inspired by the new Great Gatsby movie!
Hey besties! Hmm, that 20’s theme party is in 20 minutes! How can I get ready in time?
I’ve got it!
A cute hat and fake finger waves!
I’m a freaking genius!
Ok, let’s get started!
Separate your fringe and curl it under using whatever method you’re comfortable with.
Part your hair in the middle and then separate a piece of hair on the side.
Brush it around so it forms a wave that finishes just above your ear, then pin it in place!
Using the same section of hair, form a second wave that finished behind your ear like this. Then pin it in place!
Repeat on the other side.
Form a wave that finishes just above your ear, then pin it in place.
My hair was already curled for this but you can do this look with straight or curly hair.
This version is a way to quickly cheat at making finger waves if you have a hat handy.
A hat can cover anything!
Once you reach the back, fold all the remaining hair up and pin it to the top of your head.
This style does work better with shorter hair.
Make sure that all your pins are above the level of your hat line.
Now smooth it all down with some hairspray. You cant have a 20’s look with fly-aways!
This looks alright but just wait until you add a hat!
BAM! Super cute! And that’s how you do super quick/easy/lazy almost finger waves.
Now you just need to top off the look with some make up.
Obviously if this was a real 1920’s look you would start from scratch but this was for a last minute costume party.
The key to 20’s eye shadow is to create a darker line around your crease.
Then a darker line around your lash line as well.
Line your waterline in black and bring some of the shadow down to soften it up a little.
You don’t want a sharp wing, you’re aiming for a rounder shape.
Use lots of mascara on your top and bottom lashes.
These looks are quite bottom lash heavy and that’s how you get that doe-eyed look that was so popular back then.
Add a darker shade of lipstick and that’s it!
Now you’re ready to look out a window pining for your lost love.
Now charleston your way all over that dance floor!
I hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial. Check the link in the description for more photos and other tutorials!
