3 Hairstyles for Curly Hair

I have stick-straight hair, so a lot of the pins I see on Pinterest for hairstyles will never work. So, I recruited my friends Aunica to showcase some curly hair pins! I stared with a low messy bun with some side twists. It was pretty easy to curly her already curly hair around my fingers in order to get the top texture. I pinned them at the nape of her neck. I then gathered the rest of her hair and spun it into a bun, which I secured with a hair binder and bobby pins.  This is definitely something someone with curly hair could do quickly in the morning to dress up their look. Super easy!

Next I tried a pin that isn’t just for curly hair, but I really want to see it done. It’s a hair bow. You gather all of the hair in a ponytail and on the last time through the binder, you leave the ends in so there is a bubble of hair. Then you divide the bubble to either side and pull the ends of the pony (the tail) and pull it over to make the center of the bow. You pin them down with bobby pins to secure it. Fluff until you’re satisfied. I was actually really happy how this turned out, and it was super easy! I’m sure it would be more frustrating on straight hair, though.

For the third style I decided to do a semi-up do. You leave all of the hair down and pull strands from each side. You twist them as you bring them in and fasten them in the center, I used a hair binder. You do the same thing twice more, further down the hair. While this one was easy, I can’t say it’s my favorite. It’s pretty, but just not my style.

Reinvent the Necklace in Under 60 Seconds

Time Commitment: Under 60 Seconds

Cost: $2.50 if you need to buy ribbon

Ease of Activity: 10/10

“Re-Pin” Worthiness: 10/10

I like recycling. I like thrift shops. I like adopting pets from the animal shelter. Basically, I like giving things a second chance in life.

DIY-Pearl-Necklace-In-SecondsThat’s why this project is so wonderful. As I was looking through my jewelry, I realized that there were several pieces that I don’t really ever wear. I thought about throwing them away, but instead I thought I’d check Pinterest to see if there were any fun ideas of how to turn them into something better, and let me tell you, friends, Pinterest did not disappoint! So, if you have some old jewelry lying around, give this a try. Maybe you’ll create something wonderful!

I really liked this project because it’s so easy and simple, but it’s cute and can be worn several different ways.  Dress it up for work or dress it down and wear it with jeans. Take a couple of your old necklaces and start putting them together. It helps if they’re similar in length, but not completely necessary. I had to play around with some different styles before I found what I really liked.

This is an awesome project because it is so quick but also so inexpensive. The only cost is if you have to purchase the ribbon. You could switch the whole look of the necklace, too, by trying different color ribbon. You could even try using some lace or hemp, depending on the style you’re going for and what necklaces you’re using.
