It’s super easy to get caught in a rut doing the same-old, same-old when it comes to styling your hair, which if it looks good, I don’t blame you! But, there’s always those times when you’re ready to spice things up a bit and take your hair game to the next level. With a new season coming up, I figured it’s the perfect time to share with you all one hairstyle and two simple tips that can help you style your hair in new, yet fun ways! No hairspray needed and brushes are optional for the dos in this post 😉
Before I get started, I want to let you all know that all my fun and embellished hair ties throughout this post are from France Luxe hair. They have the absolute CUTEST hair accessories, especially for spring, so when they reached out to send me a few of their products it was a fast yes from me! I’ve worn their Grab&Go ponytails holders on the daily for the past year, and at least one of their ponytail holders featured in this post have been in my hair or on my wrist ever since I received them. That’s when you know it’s true love! So go check’em out for all your dire hair accessory needs, I promise they have you covered.
THE BUBBLE PONYTAIL
Similar to the Bubble Braid Tutorial that I shared with you all around this time last year, this is just a simpler and quicker version. All you need is a ponytail holder and some tiny rubber bands (the number of rubber bands depends on the length of your hair). Put your hair into a regular ponytail, then take one of the rubber bands and tie it about one inch from the top of your pony. Then carefully pull apart the part you sectioned off until it forms a bubble-like shape. Keep repeating this until you get as far down as you can go on the ponytail. And viola, in less than 5 minutes you have a chic hairdo to wear!
USE EMBELLISHED HAIR TIES FOR BASIC LOOKS
Of course, we all have those days when our hair isn’t cooperating and we have to revert back to the basics of half-up, half-down styles and the regular ponytail. Never fear, there’s still a way to take your basic hairdo and turn it into something a bit better. By using embellished hair ties, like scrunchies, hair scarves, or funky clasps like the pearl one featured in the bubble ponytail section of this post and the orange spiky one below, you can take your hair from zero to 100 real quick! Even though you won’t have a complex hair style, the embellished ties can make the look more unique and more YOU.
MAKE IT MESSY!
Messy buns and braids have been a trend for years, but if you’ve never tried it or could never get the hang of it, now is the time! My top tip to make a messy look is to do the hairstyle, pull out pieces of hair towards the front of your head, and then shake out the look lightly with your fingers; all without looking in a mirror. I’ve found that this creates an imperfect, yet cute and acceptable style that mimics those of your fav Instagram blogger 🙂 Also, one of the coolest ways to messy up your hair (in a boho-chic way, of course!) is to do micro braids throughout your head when you’re wearing your hair down, or throughout a teased ponytail.
My hair is one of my favorite ways to express myself, so using different styles and hair ties is something I love to do. I hope you enjoyed this post and are inspired to test out these styles and tips as they for sure upped my hair game!
