Upgraded Sock Bun!

Sock buns are awesome!! If you’ve never made one check out the tutorial here.

They immediately add volume to your hair and make a regular bun look so much more substantial! They also make it look like you know what you’re doing and were able to gather your hair into an impossibly neat, ballerina worthy, bun.  With that being said, here’s a fun twist on a style that’s quickly become a new favorite!

Headband Series #2 The Making Of A Sock Bun

Headband Series #2 The Making Of A Sock Bun

If you’ve read yesterday’s post you know we’re re-purposing the beautifully bejeweled Pink Pewter bracelet. What are we re-purposing it for you ask? Hair jewelry! More precisely to decorate our sock buns.

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to make your very own carefully crafted, luscious sock bun!

1. Yes you need a sock

Grab a sock, preferably in a neutral colour that won’t blind if it accidentally peeks through. Cut off the toes, and roll it in on itself. Make a high (very high!) ponytail and place it inside the rolled up sock.

Bend forward and separate your hair such that it falls evenly all around the sock and secure it with another elastic. Read more

Headband Series #1 An Intro!

Headband Series #1 An Intro!

Hi lovelies!

I won’t keep you waiting any longer. The time has come for me to share my awesome new Pink Pewter headbands with you, along with some simple hairstyles. These headbands are so gorgeous that they dress up any hairstyle, or lack thereof.

I’ve been playing with them all weekend but I first wore one to work this morning, and let me tell you, if you need an ego boost – wear Pink Pewter headbands! I can’t remember the last time I received this many compliments! These headbands are certainly unique and grab your attention, not to mention sparkly. Everyone loves sparkly.

Pink Pewter was kind enough to send me 4 samples of their beautiful pieces, and I intend on sharing them with you all week long!! The brand has a huge celeb following, and it’s no wonder with each piece being so beautifully unique and emanating the passion and love-for-the-art put into it. They are widely distributed internationally, and in Canada they can be found at Trade Secrets, or online at Amazon.ca

Quick little bun for long hair

Quick little bun for long hair

Pretty much everything I do is simple, and as the saying goes “Necessity is the mother of invention“. What is necessary for me is to be able to have a shower in the morning and wash my hair before work but not spend a million hours straightening, or curling, or styling it, because that’s not what mornings are for.

What I’ve been trying to do is come up with simple ways to put up my hair instead of just sporting a ponytail all the time. Although my hair is dry below (it’s second day hair), I will often wash my hair and blow dry just the roots. If I then braid it, or put it up, I look put together, I don’t have to leave my house looking like I just ran out of the shower, my hair dries nice and smooth, and it takes no time at all!

The good thing about this hairstyle is you only need 1 elastic, and it will still hold marvelously! Believe me this is key for those of us with thick hair. If I can put it up and not have it come down, I’m a happy camper. You can do this quick little bun on the go or after you’ve left the house, because it’s that simple. I did mine in 30 seconds but I’m sure with a little hairspray and a few more minutes you can dress this baby up, and make yours neater than mine.

So without further ado, here’s my bun:

1. Start with a simple pony tail
