So I have some regular "go-to-dos" but I've decided to branch out a bit and try some new lovelies.
Here Are My Regulars:
And for those of you who think you can't do the beach waves because you have short hair, these beautiful ladies beg the contrary:


And here is my inspiration board:
I'm seriously thinking about getting a perm
after seeing these coiffures.


I will being trying my hand at these fancy braids in the next few weeks, and I'll let you know how they go. 
Go ahead and join me...you can even send me pictures if you want--I'd love to see: ashleyanielson@gmail.com

What's Your Go-To-Do?

The fishtail is pretty and I have been wondering for a while how people do that- sounds perfect :)

LOVE the fishtail braid! my hair is super straight and fine so i have to tease the heck out of it to give it a little body to get the messy look!!! and i could never have sexy beach hair...mine's seriously bone straight!!!

Oh I just love the title of this post! Hair is one of my favorite songs of all time.

I am one of those girls who have short hair so all I do is straighten it out, but I've been trying waves lately. Also a middle part, because I realized it looks good on me if I do it right but usually I can't do it right. I used to have really long hair like yours and I miss it so much!

But what I really really want is the Victoria's Secret model's hair. Oh my goodness they have the wavy, sexy, bedhead hair down pat!!!

how do you make the hair do ate the last pictures ?
i really love it !

Johanna said...

I love braids! I've recently started to wear a braid, either on the back or on the side. I wish I had thicker hair; my braids are almost non-existent. Ha!
Otherwise I put my hair up in a knot or a ponytail. I love your big knot!

jaimie- i wish you lived by me so you could come over. i promise you that i could make you hair beachy wavy. i have super straight, fine hair and i know it can be done!

johanna- you should curl it before you braid it, or just tease it, then it will look thicker.

big huge messy top knot all the way. i'm even old enough that i can remember doing a version in all my 3 decades. that makes me sound like i have no teeth and wear depends.

I have crazy curls. When I'm feeling particularly motivated, I flat iron the life out of them but my easy go to is gel and let them dry.

Cortney said...

I have very, very thick wavy/curly hair that's almost to my waist. I don't blow dry it, or straighten it. I don't even own a brush :) I wash it about 3 times a week, let it dry naturally, and wear it down most of the time. I'll alternate this with the top half pulled up in some way- braids, or rolled back and pinned- or I'll do a high pony tail with a piece of hair wrapped around the band. Simple and easy. I do my hair and other people's hair for proms/weddings, so I can do crazy stuff with it, but usually I just leave it to its own devices.

I love trying new hair-dos too!
I usually keep it sleek or beachy and I am a fan of the side braid.
I should try more up-dos.

Aubree said...

I cannot figure out the beach wave for the life of me! Have you posted a tutorial on how you did it? If not, you should and soon!
