Two Fun & Easy Hair Looks For Spring

I often get asked for quick tips on creating pretty hairstyles without too much fuss. I designed these two styles for polished, low-key workdays and celebrating the start of spring. These two looks serve as inspiration for your blog, social feed, or ushering in a new spring wardrobe. Give these styles a whirl and let me know how they worked for you! Tag your take on them using #beautyforbloggers. 

The Double Knotted Pony

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  • Two Clear or Nude Colored Elastic Bands
  • Hair Pins (and a hair clip if you desire for styling assistance)
  • Sectioning Comb
  • Black leather ribbon for an extra dose of style, if desired
  • Holding spray and curling iron, if desired

HOW TO GET THE LOOK

  • Split your hair into two sections at the crown. 
  • Place the top section into a ponytail with an elastic band (so your hair resembles a half-up, half-down look).
  • Take a 2 1/2 inch section of hair from your ponytail and wrap it around your hair elastic to disguise the band. Pin the ends close to the scalp once you’ve wrapped the entire length of your hair around the band. Remember to place the pin wavy side down to keep your hold in place. 
  • Hold further with hairspray, if desired.
  • Create a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Repeat the same process of wrapping hair from your ponytail to accent your look. 
  • The key to this style is to then tug at each wrapped section to gently elongate the look of each wrapped piece, making the look extra fresh for fall. 
  • Lastly, modernize your wrapped section at the nape of the neck even further by adding a slim leather ribbon tied at the middle of the wrap. 
  • Add soft curl to your ends and finish with a soft layering of holding spray.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK

  • Add a French braid to that teased section and wrap it around your hair elastic to disguise the band.
