You're sure to turn heads with this hairstyle inspired by Kim K!
Things you'll need:
(I would recommend John Frieda's Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Serum)
1 or 1 1/2 inch curling iron
Hair elastics that match your hair color
(I would recommend L'Oreal's Elnett Satin Hairspray)
Step 1: Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner. *Optional: To tame frizz for the whole school day, I would recommend that you try John Frieda's Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Serum. You put it in your hair when it is wet. It prevents your hair from frizzing up all day and protects it from heat.
Step 2: Apply your heat protectant. If you took my advice on the John Frieda Serum, then this step is already done.
Step 3: Comb (not brush) your hair to free it from tangles and begin to blow dry it. You want to blow dry your hair with your head down for lots of volume and body. After your hair is nice and dry, blast it with the cool setting on your blow dryer so that your hair stays voluminous for a long time.
Step 4: Make sure that your curling iron is heated up. Open the clamp and wrap 1 inch sections around the barrel then close the clamp. Curl your hair away from your face for some sections and toward your face for others for a more tasseled look. Release your hair in the palm of your hand by holding your curling iron upside down to release it. Let is sit in your palm for about 2 or 3 seconds then let it go. You should now have a wave that looks like Kim's. Do this all over your head. Lightly hairspray your waves so that they don't fall out of place when you do the next step.
Step 5: This is the fun part! Take a section of hair on the top of your head as if you were about to make a pouf. In the picture, it looks like Kim has her hair loosely, french braided at the top with little sections hanging loose from beneath braid going toward the side of her face. That is what you are going to do. Pull up your section of hair and on the right side toward the middle of it, take out 2 strands of hair(If you are confused, look at the picture to the side and above. Look closely at the two strands of hair that look like they have been pulled from under the braid). Clip those 2 strands of hair to the side so that your french braid doesn't pick them up.
Step 6: With the rest of your section, at the right corner of it, divide it into 3 sections and begin to loosely french braid your hair(Look at the photo above the one up top). Make the braid a bit tighter as you reach the quarter point of your section. Once you hit the quarter point of your braid(if your hair is long like Kim's, quarter point is like 1/4th of your section of hair;so like to the top of your cheekbone) stop braiding and gently tuck it behind a section of hair above the back of your ear and bobby pin it(look at picture above).
Step 7: On to the other braids in this hairstyle! Take a small section of hair toward the back of your head and make a basic braid. Once you hit the end of your braid, seal it with an elastic hair tie that matches your hair color. For the braid next to your french braid, take a small section of hair above your ear and make a basic braid. When you hit the end of that braid, tie an elastic hair tie that matches your hair color at the end of it. Now hairspray your hair to keep everything in place for the whole day!
And there you have it! This hairstyle make take a little bit of practice but once you get the hang of it, you'll want to wear it all the time because it is so pretty and it will become easier for you to do!
This hairstyle is so easy and fun to do! Its really good for when your having a bad hair day!
Things You'll Need:
Elastic Hair Ties That Match Your Hair Color
(to hold your hair in place while you work on one side of your head)
Step 1: Make sure your hair is clean and conditioned as well as free of any products!
Step 2: Divide your hair down the middle of your head and clip up one side of your hair to keep it out of the way.
Step 3: Brush out your section of hair that you left out so that it is nice and smooth. Then begin to braid your hair. Once you hit the end of your braid, seal it with an elastic hair tie that matches your hair color. Do the same for the other side of your hair.
Step 4: Take a braid and wrap it around the top of your head then bobby pin it so that it stays in place. For the other side, do the same thing but make sure it overlaps the end of the first braid. Now take the end of your current braid and tuck it under the first braid so that your hairstyle ends up looking more like a halo (Look at both pictures of Elle's hair).
Step 5: Take little sections out on the sides for a messy look like Elle's. If you like for your hair to look neat, then you can skip this step.
Step 6: Lightly hairspray your hair so that everything stays in place!
There you go! Now your hair is ready for the day!
You'll rock the hallways with this hairstyle inspired by Lucy Hale!
Things You'll Need:
1 inch Curling Iron
Step 1: You want to start off with wet hair so make sure your hair is clean, conditioned and free of any products!
Step 2: Apply a heat protectant. (Like I said in the Kim Kardashian portion of this post, I recommend the John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Serum.)
Step 3: Begin to blow dry your hair with your head down for volume and body. After your hair is nice and dry, blast it with the cool setting on your blow dryer so that your hair stays voluminous for a long time.
Step 4: Curl your hair in 1 inch sections with preferably a 1 inch curling iron. Be sure to curl away from your face and make sure that when you release your hair from the barrel, that you are holding your curling iron upside down and releasing your hair in your palm! After you've done your whole head, gently finger comb through your curls and lightly hairspray it(I would recommend L'Oreal's Elnett Satin Hairspray).
Step 5: Take a section of hair around your crown area ,tease it, hairspray your teased section and gently brush down the top for a smooth surface (look at the pictures if confused).
Step 6: Part your hair slightly to the side (like almost a center part but move it over a bit) and take a section of hair above your ear on the right side. With your section of hair, gently twist it and bobby pin it to the side like Lucy's (look at the picture to the side). Cover your bobby pin with a section of hair in the back.
Step 7: On the left side of your part, make sure your hair falls in a swoop toward your face to resemble Lucy's hair. If you have a bigger forehead like me, make sure that your swoop covers your forehead instead of it being on the side of your face. Kind of like Beyone's hair in the picture to the left.
Now your hair is done! :)
This hairstyle is perfect for those who sport bangs!
Things You'll Need:
1 inch Curling Iron
Step 1: Start off with wet, clean and conditioned hair that is free of any products.
Step 2: Apply your heat protectant and blow dry your bangs first. Then blow dry the rest of your hair with your head down for a voluminous finish. After your hair is nice and dry, blast it with the cool setting on your blow dryer so that your hair stays voluminous for a long time!
Step 3: Take your 1 inch curling iron and begin to curl your hair in 1 inch sections, away from your face. Release your hair from the barrell, holding the curling iron upside down. Hold your released hair in your palm for about 3-5 seconds then let go. Do this for your whole head excluding your bangs.
Step 4: Once your whole head is done, lightly hairspray your curls so that they stay in place.
Step 5: Above your bangs, make a center part. Toward the end of your eye brow, glide your finger into your hair creating a section ending toward the crown of your head. Take that section, slightly twist it and slightly bump it up then bobby pin it in place. (If confused, refer to the photo above.) Do this for both sides of your hair.
Step 6: Lightly hairspray your hair to keep everything in place!
Now you're done!
