Upside Down Braided Do

1. Gather the top half of your up and clip it out of the way.

2. Flip your head over, then take a small piece of hair at the nape of your neck to start your braid. If you don’t know how to French braid, watch our tutorial first.

3. Continue French braiding until you’ve incorporated all of your loose hair into the braid.

4. Braid your hair down a little more (regularly braiding the end, no longer French braiding) before tying it off with a clear elastic.

5. Flip your head right-side-up and release the top half of your hair. Gather all of your hair – the top half and the bottom braid – into a high, messy pony. Once you feel your pony is secured with an elastic, you can undo the elastic from the braid.

6. Twist your pony into a top knot (tutorial here) and secure with spin pins or bobby pins. Hairspray that baby and…voilà!

Smooth, Straight Hair with a Bend

Flat iron with bent ends: Here’s the trick. Right after the hair comes out of the flat iron, you’ll want to drape it over the brush as you see in photo 11. Let it cool for about 10 seconds and set it down. Once the hair cools with a little bend move to the next section.

Looking to go blonde without completely killing your hair? I hear you and I’ve got just the thing! Not only is this color totally gorgeous but if you still wanted to go blonder you totally could! Ask your stylist for this dark blonde color and then every time you return to the salon ask them to pull some highlights through. You’ll get the lighter shade you want in no time and save your hair the trauma of going super blonde all at once (trust me, been there, done that!).

P.S. The cut this girl has is AMAZING.
