Hairstyle 11/30: Loose Modern Glamour Waves

side hair vintage wavesToday I have a special reappearance of the long neglected hairstyles series – and it’s featuring my littlest sister on her birthday (happy birthday my baby love!). These photos are a continuation of the shoot from yesterday, only specifically focused on her hair.

The waves were created using a curling wand, which I used to wrap all the curls in the same direction – away from the face. I let her hair set for a few minutes before gently brushing out the curls to get these gorgeous glam waves. Her hair is naturally ombre’d from spending the entire summer in the sun, and I think it makes for some really pretty highlighting of the hair texture.

Hairstyle 10/30 Half Up Loose Fishtail Braid

Braided up this little number on le baby sister, based on this photo. It is now my favorite and I want to wear it everyday. We tried two different versions of the style, both super easy to do. It’s a little difficult to see in the photo, but the baby braid is off to the side of her head, and looks just different enough to catch your eye. Love!

I finally got my act together and did a new style for the series. Admittedly I was a little more interested in the makeup portion of this look, but I really love the hair too. I’m thinking this would be perfect for the 4th with curls piled high on the head.

To get this look I used Maybelline’s gel eyeliner in blackest black and their ColorSensational lipstick in Are You Red-dy. Badass bandana acquired from a thrift store or somewhere equally random.

Hairstyle 8/30: Fishtail Braid

I wasn’t planning on including the fishtail braid into this hair series, but then I heard someone call it a snake braid, which is such a better name for it. So, here we, my snake braid and I.

This one takes quite a while for me to do as my hair seems to be about 28 feet long these days, but it’s well worth it. Plus, it holds better than a traditional braid, where my layered hair starts to stick out every which way as soon as I tie the elastic. Also, the snake braid looks quite lovely worn as a crown:

Hairstyle 7/30: Side Rope

This style rules because it takes all of 60 seconds, and is different enough to warrent a second look.

Divide hair into two sections, twist sections in the same direction, twist together in the opposite direction, then braid the bottom to hold the twist.

I realize this probably shouldn’t count as a ‘hairstyle’, but I’m behind on these posts and a girl’s gotta catch up somehow! Plus, I never wear my hair like this so it counts.

I wore this to my parent’s house for Easter dinner. I’m not even sure that I brushed it, which is pretty standard protocol for me.
