Hair Diary - 5 days, 5 styles

2 weeks ago my colleague commented "your hair is different every day, you should take pictures" which gave me an idea... a hair diary! I don't know if my halo braid tutorial gave you a hint, but I love doing my hair and doing different things with it so here's my diary of a working week in hair...

Also, I've put a quick "how to" for each style, just follow this big hair tutorial to get a good base for these hair styles.

Day 1: Messy bun


How to: Pull hair up into a high, messy ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Then take inch thick sections and backcomb them fully until you have a bushy ponytail. Then curl it all around the base of the elastic band loosely and pin it in. I like to leave some sections a bit loose and falling down.


 


Day 2: Down Day


I don't straighten my hair so this is just it rough dried and scrunched. Yes I know it's a mess but I like the volume and texture.

Day 3: Fancy French Plait



I got this idea from a hairstyle I saw Leona Lewis wearing at an award ceremony


However I wanted it a bit neater for work. I left my fringe out but you can also put it in. What you do is part your hair as normal, then start french plaiting above one ear and around the back of your head. As you get to the back of the other ear, stop french pleating and take it down into a normal plait or a fishtail one as seen on Leona. Sometimes I also roll the tail of the plait up as a side bun.

Day 4: Posh Pony-tail


This is a great way to make your day off hair a bit more interesting. I scoop up hair into a ponytail and then take a small section and wrap it around the hairband to cover it. Then use a small grip to pin the end underneath the band.

Day 5: The Kate wedding do'


This is an easy one! Take the top section of hair which has been thoroughly back-combed and using a couple of grips, twist slightly and pin into the scalp and add a pretty flower. This was inspired by Kate's hair at the wedding but with a bit more volume.

So there we go, 5 days in my hair. Do you want to see this again next week?

  3. oooh I love this post! I never do anything with my hair, just clip my fringe back in some way, this has definitely given me some inspiration though :) xxx

  4. I am so jealous of how good you are at changing your hair! I am so lazy with my hair and I find since it's really long now I do less with it than when it's used to be short. I may have to make a hair resolution!
    My favourite is your twist on a French plait. Do you do it reversed or something to make it sit on top like that? Mine always look like the tucked under old-school version xx
