A Beautiful Mess… Messy Updos!

8 Apr

Love this look! Gonna wear this next time I hit the town:)

Get out your teasing combs cause messy hairstyles are so” HOT” right now! This style really works for me cause I’ve been doing a  messy birds nest on top of my head for years (cause I’m lazy) but now I get to have messy hair and look trendy at the same time. Messy looks are simple and quick and the messier the better!


The messy top knot birds nest

Want a messy birds nest? Here’s how:

  • Pull the hair up into a very high ponytail on the top of the head
  • Divide the ponytail into several sections then tease each section with a comb, creating lots of volume and texture (it should look a little crazy right now so don’t be alarmed… it will soon be tamed!
  • Brush the ponytail out just a little bit to even out the texture, then wrap the hair around the ponytail to create a messy topknot.
  • Secure with bobby pins all the way around
  • Spray with hair spray

Beautiful messes, I love putting those two words together.

Happy Weekend!



Feathers…So Fly!!!

18 Feb

When I found out that feather hair extensions are the hot new trend for Spring 2011, I almost fell off my chair. Feathers are completely FLY!

I shopped them around online and found a good deal on eBay, getting them for around a buck a feather. You also need to buy the silicone hair beads to install them in your hair.  I bought 200 beads on Amazon for $11.

From what I’ve read, these extensions seem very easy to install, all you need is a pair of pliers and a hair hook (like the ones that come in a highlight kit).  What’s cool about these natural feathers is that they can be styled, washed and curled right along with your regular hair and can last up to a month or so.

I am impatiently waiting on my feathers…please Mr. Postman, hurry up with the goods!
