We tease it, we pull it, we dye it, we cut it. Experimenting with hair styles is one of the greatest parts of being a lady- when you're in the right mood and your hair is behaving, that is! Usually I just let my hair go free, fixing my bangs and calling it a day. But lately I've been really inspired to kick it up a notch and do a little more than just blow dry and go.
I've had a few reader questions as to how to style a beehive up-do, and most recently, how to achieve the '60s inspired braided up-do I featured yesterday. Rather than creating redundant tutorials featuring my own mug, I figured I would kindly point you in the direction of some pretty fantastic hair tutorials from other fine blogging ladies.
1. Keiko Lynn's Braided Do
I've done the beehive up-do. I've done the maiden braids. But combining the two? Not only is it a perfectly lovely style, but also a great way to ground a scarf on my head. I don't know about you, but when I wear hard scarves, I often feel as though they might slip from my head at any moment. I've found braided dos are the perfect trick for securing scarves! Also, be sure to check out Kara Haupt rocking her own version of this very same style.
2. Elsie Larsen's Summertime Twist
Here's a style I have yet to try, but it looks so easy and pretty! This style is great with flowers or other hair accessories tucked inside, and I think it might also serve as a great style to host a small vintage hat. Next time I'm about to pull my hair out on a bad day, I'll just twist it up like this, and who knows? Maybe when I take down the twists, my hair will actually have a nice curl to it?
3. Veronika's Anna Karina Inspired Beehive
The beehive is my favorite go-to style when headed out in a fancy dress. The trick with this style is a lot of teasing, and if it weren't for the resulting tangles, this is a hair-do I would sport a lot more often. Isn't the bow on top so pretty?
4. Casey's Charming 40's Braids
I really love the style of the 1940s, but so many hair-dos from this era are either too complicated or too costumey for me to try on an average day. This pulled back and braided look Casey created is straight out of the '40s, but has the ease and simplicity of a modern style. I'll be trying this one soon!
