Hair Too{s}day.

Volume 9: Sneak Preview Fall 2011 

Welcome to my official weekly tutorial  of what do to with your hair!! People are always asking me 

"How did you do that to your hair?" 

And so here are my answers, trials, and step by step tutorials of 

"How you can do that to your hair, too!"

It's going to be a good fall time ladies! As much of a procrastinator as I was about blogging the past 3 months, I have to give myself the fact that I have been a good girl growing out and taking care of my locks. I have almost completely grown my bangs out and past my cheek bones, and I have gained a good 2-3 inches since my last hair cut in March. But why the hell do you care about all this? I don't know. 

Moving on to what you came for, some hair inspiration! I wanted to give you girls a preview of what's to come in my hair tutorials and would gladly take any requests! Enjoy my current obsessions when it comes to hair. 

the messy pony. 

I can't wait to try this and tutorial the do! 

I'm thinking a chunky scarf and boots come October. 
(oh fall I'm so excited you're coming!)

growing long layers.

I'll sneak in updates of my process of growing long layers into my hair - a style I've never had before. 

currently it's very close to this. 

love love loove this natural look. 
(could hardly find any brunettes!)

everything braids. 

will I ever give up my love for braids? 
I think not. 

I got my hair to look just like this the other day and had no time to tutorial or take a picture. 
I will retry don't you worry. I'm just excited my hair is finally long enough :))

This makes me want to plan a night out in Denver! What a cute yet sexy hair style. 
Definitely recreating this.( Dina, I need your straightening skills!)

sorry for the crappy photo but this I can't wait to try!
(especially since I'm obsessing over 70's inspired silhouettes already)

fall wedding season. 

I have a friend's wedding to go to in September and I of course am going to need a fab hair do!

I love this do, but someone give this girl a burger. 

* tip of the week *
If you're like me, you believe avidly in washing your hair every other or third day. I will sometimes even push it to four if it happens to be Sunday. I'm telling you ladies, I swear by it. If you have easily greasier hair after only a day try one of my tricks to boost my do on a second or third day. 
Just because you're not washing your hair, doesn't mean you should go four days without showering completely! If you flip your head over and pin your hair into a ridiculously high buns before you hop in the shower, the steam will freshen up your volume and product. 
eins. Brush your hair with a large tooth comb to eliminate any knots and tangles and to distribute natural oils. (Don't stress if you dampen your roots) 
zwei. Unpin your hair working your hands to get the style you had the previous day and let any dampness air dry itself.  
drei. Wear naturally the rest of the day for a relaxed beach wave style, or take advantage of the texture and work your skills on a braid, up do, or messy pony. 

* coming next week *
I'll compare freshening up with baby powder vs dry shampoo? Have any of you tried that yet?


love your locks, girls.

  1. I'm attempting to grow my hair out but it takes forevvvverrrrr! But all these fall styles are super cute! As a blonde I used baby powder ALL THE TIME! It worked like a charm. I haven't tried it yet as a brunette, kinda scared the white won't blend in as well with my new dark locks. And I have a dry shampoo spray that works okay. Except I don't like the stiffness it gives my hair. Looking forward to tips!!!
