Heat Free Hairstyles - BLOGMAS DAY EIGHT!

(Thank you again to Cerys, for helping me tremendosuly, recreating these looks and taking the photos! Also quick note - I'm sorry the lighting is not identical!)

It was only a month and a half ago when I wrote my first hairstyle post, and I know many of you really enjoyed that post so I though I'd write another one for BLOGMAS! I really hope you enjoy it!

1. Fishtail:
Divide your hair into a side parting and take all of your hair onto one side, and start by splitting your hair into two sections. Take a small piece of hair from the outside of on of the two main sections and move it to the inside of the other section. Take a small piece of hair from the outside of the oppisite section and move it into the inside of the opposite section. Make sure your pulling tight so it stays secure. Continue by taking small pieces from each side into the inside of the opposing section, keep going until you reach the end and secure with an elastic.

2. Hairbow:
Start this hairstyle by taking the front sections of your hair into a small ponytail at the back of your hair, this is also known as the 'half up half down' hairstyle. You may need a two way mirror for the next part as it can get a bit tricky. Make a second ponytail underneath the first, and begin to pull it tight until it seperates into two. Use a few bobby pins to secure this. Then make a very small third ponytail underneath the others, and bring it over the middle of the bow to create the divide. This hairstyle is exceptionally hard, so you'll need lots of practise, hair clips and hairspray!

3. Half Up, Half Down:
This hairstyle is very simple and most likely you've already completed it prior. Taking the front sections of your hair sweep it into in a neat ponytail using a brush to smooth any bumps, and you guessed it - secure with a rubber band. You can either choose to leave it or braid it so it falls into loose curls like I have done.

4. Braided Bun:
Begin this hairstyle by diving your hair into a centre/middle parting and on the left hand side french braid your hair, continue this until you either run out of hair or if you would rather secure a rubber band in the middle, the band will be covered by the rest of your hair regardless. (If you don't know how to french braid then you can see my previous hairstyle post where I explain how!)  With the remainder of your hair, scoop it up as if to begin a ponytail but instead scrunch it into a messy bun. Use a hairband to tie it and using a teasing comb or your fingers, pull out loose strands to make the hairstyle a little more messy and carefree.

Please let me know if you'll be recreating this looks at home, and what your everyday hairstyle is!
