my hair routine is pretty simple, most of the time i like to keep it all natural but i always appreciate the way a different hair style can mix up someone’s look or take a basic outfit and make it a little more glamorous. i asked my friend ashley to come up with four different hair tutorials that could be created in less then four steps. (if i’m gonna do my hair, it’s gotta be easy!) take a peek and let me know if you try one, i’d love to see!

i think my favorite was the knotted ponytail. it’s so easy, it’s laughable.



• take a strand of hair from both sides & create a loop on the left side.
• using your right thumb lift the right section of hair up through the loop. do not pull the section of hair all the way through…

• take the end of the right section and go over and under the left section of hair.
• taking that same section of hair pull it through the loop you created with your thumb & pull to create a knot.

i love this half up look and the contrast of the soft feminine waves with a more structured interlocking twist.


• create 2 small braids, one above each ear.
• spray a little texture spray and pull apart until you get the desired texture…

• using hairpins pull both braids up and around crown area and pin.

braids are always a win, they can be used in so many different ways and they actually stay put once you pin them which is plus.


• gather all of your hair like you’re going to create a low ponytail & twist to one side.
• taking the twist in the opposite hand, tuck it up/underneath at the nape of the neck & pin with hairpins…

i love how this look feels instantly glamorous and very 60’s. i sometimes debate wanting to cut my hair short but this look gives you the best of both worlds.

and, it paired perfectly with the pale pink peony dress by camilyn beth which felt very ladylike.


• part your hair down the center to create 2 large sections
• taking both sections tie a single knot
• using a large hairpin secure it through the center

this hair look feels very california cool, laid back but also fit for a fancier occasion like a wedding or date night.

    these are so elegant and beautiful… in moments like this I look at my outgrown pixie and sigh ))

    These are really lovely Bri. I recently donated my long hair to cancer (well, for wigs, not literally to the disease but you know what I mean), and I can’t wait until it grows back! And then, murphy’s law, I’ll most likely find lovely short hair tutorials… such is life 🙂 But I’ll definitely come back to these!
