How to Create This Elegant French Twist

Steps
1. Start with dry or damp hair. Hair can be curly or straight.
2. Comb through hair with your fingers and pull it all over to the desired side.
3. Take your hair into one hand like you are going to create a low side ponytail.
4. Twist hair forward (towards your face) starting with the hair behind your ear, from the roots. Twist hair a couple inches down the ponytail. I stopped mine just below the earlobe.
5. Now secure the twist with bobby pins. Place pins at the base of your twist where the hair is folded in at your scalp. For the best hold, take the lip of the pin and push it in and away from the twist, then push it back into the twist, up against your scalp. This will tightly secure your twist. Set the style with your favorite hairspray and prepare to turn some heads!

The Makeup Life!



Trip To America! 
Week in Pictures



So my brother and me headed to America for Thanksgiving! 
I love thanksgiving, its all the best parts of Christmas without the stress of buying presents
 - Food, Family and fun!

Me and my brother Michael
  

We landed into Boston Airport after a 7 hour flight from Shannon. The flight was so smooth, but my vegetarian meal was not nice at all - plain rice and steamed vegetables, everyone else got chocolate cookie, but I got a fruit salad I love cookies! :( what happened there!  

I love Massachusetts, I have to live there at some stage in my life!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
           
                 

 

So we headed to the mall, my brother totally embarrassed me by playing my video on one of the laptops, I did take the picture but very quickly walked away embarrassed! Love to get a Mac, one day I will I guess. 

Hey has anyone else noticed MAC and Mac are both very expensive and best in their own niche? No just me?? 


I didn't go into M.A.C. (we have it in Ireland) I did go to.....



As you can see I was pretty happy about it! lol

  

 
       I spent most of my money in there to be honest, they have such lovely stuff in there and then as you go to pay and you are in the queue they have loads half sizes very very tempting!! I gave in!



 I will hopefully film a haul and upload it tomorrow before I am off to England on Saturday, I dunno why I planned it like this its crazy!


Hope you all had a great week!

How To Tease And Fluff Your Hair

How To :
  • Step 1 : At the end of your part, separate a 1 inch section of hair.
  • Step 2 : Starting half-way up the length of the hair (not just at the root!), tease downward repeatedly using a teasing brush. Don’t be afraid to over-tease, as you can lessen the volume when you smooth. Spray section.
  • Step 3 : Working backwards, separate and tease a second and third section of hair, and spray each section.
  • Step 4 : Use a boar bristle brush to smooth out the teased hair. You can also use the tail of your teasing brush to fluff and give shape. Spray again.

Punky Ponytail Hair Tutorial


Step One:
Brush all of your hair through to ensure your hair is free from any knots and tangles :) I love popping in my Quad Weft hair extensions to make this super thick and on-trend. ♥
Step Two:
You will need to section off the top section of your hair like I’ve shown in my pics; to do this, take the tail end of your styling comb and create two straight lines either side so you are left with a section around 2 inches wide.
Step Three:
Take this section back to the crown of your head and section off with a hair band while we tend to the rest of the hair. :)
Step Four:
You should be left with most of your hair down and the top section secure in a hair band. You will need to take another hair band and secure the remaining hair so that you are able to concentrate on the top section without any pieces of hair interfering from the bottom section.
Step Five:
Now, we’re going back to the top section to create the punky ponytail; you are going to be french braiding this section right to the back to where this section ends. Start at the front by taking three equal sized sections and begin a simple three strand braid; you will then need to take a section from the left side and add it into the closest strand in the braid. Continue this with the right side too, alternating between the left and right side. Braid back to where your crown is and neatly secure in place with a hair band.
Step Six:
Now, for the bottom section, you’re going to need to brush all of the hair back gently and neatly into a ponytail, ensuring you get the end section of the braid into this too; then you can take out the hair band from the braid so it falls with the rest of your hair in the ponytail. :)
Step Seven:
Once you have secured your hair into a ponytail, you need to take a small section from the underneath of your hair and wrap this around the base of your ponytail. This will hide your hair band and make the hairstyle look super sleek. :) Secure in place with a bobby pin, ensuring that the hair band is hidden and the ends are neatly tucked away. :)

How to do a fishtail braid

Fishtail braids look harder than normal braids, but if you think of them as two ponytails it’s really simple to do.
Steps :

1. Put your hair in a ponytail. Once you’re more practiced, you can skip this step, but it’s a must to keep this braid in place, especially if you have layers cut in your hair.
2. Split your ponytail in two. Hold one side in each hand and keep these separate as you braid.
3. Cross a small section from the left to the right. Take a small piece of hair from the left side of the left ponytail and put it in the right ponytail.
4. Repeat on the right. Take a small piece of hair from the right side of the right ponytail and put it in the left ponytail.
5. Repeat this process all the way down the ponytails. Each time, cross a small piece of hair from one ponytail to the other side. As you move down the ponytail they cross over, forming the fishtail braid.
6. Tie the end and stretch it out. Secure the end of your fishtail braid with a small, clear elastic. Gently pull at the sides of the braid to stretch it out. This makes your hair look thicker and fuller, and emphasizes the shape of the braid.

The Wrap Around Side Braid

Steps :
1) Start with a dramatic side part.
2) Take a collection of hair from where your part starts and begin the braid only adding in hair from the front side or the side of the braid closest to your face or neck. This makes it an open, or one-sided french braid.
3) Keep braiding from underneath the braid, only taking hair from the front side of the braid.

~Always keep the braid on top of the loose hair you are braiding in. 
~If you mess up, it's OK. Unbraid the hair until you can find the 3 strands again. Stay calm and keep going. If it's not perfect it is ok. Sometimes the flaws in a braid make it better.

4) Once all the hair is braided in, continue with a standard braid the rest of the way down, or put it in a messy bun, or keep a smaller braid going with part of the hair left out and do a messy bun with a braid in it. There are so many options!

Make A Twist And Tuck Braided Updo For Hair


Steps :
1. Begin with dry hair. If your hair is silky textured, I suggest adding a mousse or a spray gel to help coarsen up your texture. In these pics, I put a slight wave into my hair by using a 1 3/4 curling iron.
2. Take a section of hair in front of one of your ears and twist it back,  going back to a few inches down from crown. Repeat on the other side.
3. Secure the twists together at the back of your head with an elastic.
4. Section your hair in three and start a loose braid.
5. Braid your hair loosely to the ends of your hair and secure with an elastic.
6. Roll your braid into and under your twisted ponytail and bobby pin it into place.
7. To make your hair fuller, fray your braid out and pin into desired place.
8. Finish with a medium hold hairspray.
