Festival Hair: Easy Halo Braid


Hello lovelies, hope you're all doing well. I was recently contacted by House of Fraser and asked if I wanted to take part in their competition named hairstyles that rock; the aim is to create a hairstyle that you would wear to a festival. My first couple of ideas were too complicated and not practical for a festival so I thought this beautiful halo braid would be perfect as it can be worn on your first day to create heat-free curls/waves for the next day or as a way to hide any greasy roots later on. The best bit? It looks great messy so you can sing and dance to your heart's content without having to worry about your hair and it literally works on any hair type so you can all channel your inner bohemian self.

If you would like to recreate this look all you have to do is create a dutch braid (a reverse french braid) starting above one of your ears then across the top of your head. Continue braiding around your head in a circle shape until you can no longer add any more hair so finish the braid like any other and secure with an elastic band. You'll probably look a bit strange at this point but don't worry, you'll be lookin' good in no time at all. Now take the tail of your braid and wrap it over the top of your head, tucking the ends under the existing braid and securing with bobby pins. To finish off, pull out some hair to give off a relaxed vibe, spray with some Aveda hairspray and you're good to go. Hopefully you like this look and if you have any questions, please leave them in the comments and I will get back to you asap.

Have you been/are you going to any festivals this year? What's your favourite festival look?

Easy 3 braid hairstyle


Hello lovelies, hope you are all doing well. Normally my hair just does it's own thing and goes wherever it wants to; regardless of what I actually want it to do so when I achieved this look, I just knew I had to share it with you lovely lot. This style would be perfect for anyone with a bit of texture in their hair (my hair is naturally a bird's nest curly) or someone who just wants to get all their hair off their face. The best bit? I did this without a mirror and it literally took me 10 minutes, if that. 

If you want to recreate this look, firstly separate a large section of hair on one side (I took all the hair in front of my ear on my right side) and tie it up out of the way. Half french-braid your remaining hair (just a normal french braid but you only add hair from one side, in this case from the nape of your neck, if that makes sense?) starting from your left ear. Once you've added all your hair, just finish your braid and tie off with an elastic band. Fold the 'tail' of your braid back on itself so it's sitting above the french braid and secure with bobby pins, tucking the end under the french braid. Untie the hair you separated out earlier and split it into 2 sections, tie one section out of the way. Create a dutch braid, secure with an elastic band and pin it across the back of your head, using bobby pins, and hide the end like before. Finally, with your last section, start by doing a dutch braid and and then create a fishtail braid, tie and secure the same way as before and you're done.

Hopefully that made sense but if you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments below. If you do have a go, I'd love to see how it turns out!

Just a hint of cuteness


Hello lovelies, hope you're all doing well. Last week my school hosted an enrichment week and one of the activities was going to a farm...not everybody's cup of tea but being the crazy animal lover that I am, I jumped at the chance to go and ended up having a really good day (minus the mucking out). I got to have cuddles with the most adorable little micropig, feed some crazy lambs, take a tractor ride-which was actually pretty scary and got to watch pigs racing. Now I just need to win the lottery so I can have my own little farm...
