Do you remember this cute style? Its honestly one of my favorites. Its great for when you are growing out bangs. It's great to add flare to a ponytail. It's SUPER FANTASTIC for swimming. We love this one for swimming. It stays in tight and is so cute! So use this style, love this style and have a great weekend. To get this tutorial just check out this link on our Securing a Single Twist tutorial.

Fishtail Twisted Pull Back

It is time to start pulling out some new back to school hair styles. My favorite style for school are the ones that are easy to pull off on any kind of a morning. This one is perfect. Its easy, but super cute. 
Step one: Divide the hair into sections. Part off your front sections to fall just behind the ears. The parts don't need to be perfect. As a matter of fact, most styles can really benefit from a little less perfection when it comes to your parting. If you don't have a solid part you don't have to try covering a part-line in your finished style

Secure the back section out of your way so you can work with your front sections. If you want a little more "Umph" and volume to this style you can backcomb this section and smooth the hair over the top before you secure it back.

Step two: Starting with a section on one side of the hair in the fringe area you will twist the hair towards the top/back of the head. This is a loose twist.

Step three: Picking up small sections of hair twist in loosely into the front twist working your way to the back. You will do this on both sides meeting at the occipital in the back of the head.

Step four: Keeping the two sections separate you will now start braiding.

Step five: We used a fishtail braid in this example, but you could do a wide variety of braid options in this style. Braid it all the way to the end. Because this is supposed to be a loose style we pulled out and puffed out our braid just a little.

The sixth picture is the finished look. Don't you just adore it? At this point you could curl the hair a little more if you feel like it needs it or you could just leave the hair in its natural fall pattern.
Happy hair doing. Enjoy this cute style and make sure you share your work with us by tagging us on Instagram or sharing your photos on our Facebook page. Have a happy week.

Flash Back Friday


Today we are taking a short stroll back to the last time Beans had short hair. The length of her hair in this picture is actually a little longer than her hair is right now. I 100% adore this cute simple style in short hair. If you haven't seen the tutorial for this one yet make sure you go check it out here. Have a very happy Friday.

Ladder Waterfall Style (For Short or Long Hair)

 I am sure hoping everyone out there is having a great summer. Despite bee drama we are having a blast this summer. I'm a little shocked to say that we are only a month away from school starting back up again. It feels like this summer has been going so very quickly.

Thank you so much earlier this week for the love and support you all showed me with my bee sting last week. I can't tell you how grateful I am for all of you and your very kind hearts and words. Thank you.

Now we have a new super cute fun hairstyle for all of you that is done in Beans short hair. However, this style is going to be totally fabulous on any length of hair. When you have short hair the part you work with is all that stuff on top, you don't get a lot of styles in the back, but you aren't missing much. By doing the style up top you are almost guaranteed to end with a nicely balanced style.
We are calling this style a Ladder Waterfall Hairstyle since it incorporates both into the finished look. I don't do a step by step on the waterfall braid since I already have a great tutorial and video done. So make sure and go refresh with this post if you aren't familiar with this type of braiding.

Once you have done that come back and lets go through the step-by-step on achieving the same look we've done in the photo above. Scroll down to see the full tutorial.

Bee's Knees

I actually don't think Bee's have knees, but I know for a fact they have stingers. For those who have followed us for years you have not been a stranger to my very severe honey bee allergy. This summer we took it to all new levels!

Beans got stung by one this last week and we got the stinger out. I touched the stinger, but thought nothing of it since it hadn't actually stung me. Within an hour I had hives starting on the insides of my arms. By the next morning I had them covering my arms, around my hairline and starting on the backs of my legs. By that second night I was struggling to breath and was now covered in very itchy hives that felt like my skin was trying to escape my bones. After a night of sleeplessness and struggle to breath I went in to my doctor. It was then that we decided it had to be a slow onset of my bee sting allergy. CRAZY.... right?

It has taken a week of steroids, oatmeal baths, longs pants in the summer time, but I finally feel like I am getting back to relatively feeling normal. I have sores all up and down my legs from itching and around my hairline, but they are healing fast. I have only two more days on the steroids. I think things are looking up for me. I will be really thrilled when I feel safe to shave my legs again! (TMI)

Anyways... with that behind us. Beans and I shot a new tutorial that I just need to get edited and posted. I don't have a sneak peak for you, but we like it. Simple, but awesome. She still has her short hair. Watch for that hopefully later this week if all keeps moving forward so well.

Thanks for all the love and support you guys have always shown us. We love you.
