Hair Extensions 101 on www.girllovesglam.com

I get asked about hair extensions all of the time and I thought I would finally create a post full of the types of questions I get asked about hair extensions in a little Hair Extensions 101 course to teach you all about the different types of hair extensions, how to take care of hair extensions, what types of products to use on hair extensions, and other frequently asked extensions questions!

How to Style Straight Across Bangs: YouTube Monday

It is Monday again! That means it is time for another video!

I get asked ALL of the time how to style straight across bangs. I get asked at the salon when I am cutting bangs, my friends with bangs ask me, and people thinking about cutting bangs ask me. For a long time, I thought it would be a silly video to do because it is so simple. After asking a few people their thoughts on the matter, I realized that it may be best to just go ahead and film it!

Minnie Mouse Ears Toddler Hairstyle

I have a major Minnie Mouse fan at my house. One day as I was trying to think of something to do with her hair, she wasn’t really cooperating. I was kind of desperate to come up with an idea for her hair that she would sit still for. When I couldn’t think of anything, I asked her what kind of hair she wanted that day. I was not at all prepared for what she was about to throw at me… Minnie Mouse hair! Say what?! Minnie Mouse doesn’t even have hair! That is when I came up with the idea to do Minnie Mouse EARS as the toddler hairstyle instead of her hair that doesn’t actually exist.

There are a few really great things about this hairstyle. One of the great things is that it is really easy to do, but what is probably the greatest thing is what happens if you do it when the hair is wet! If you do this hairstyle when the hair is wet, it turns out really smooth (Unlike the photos I have of the hairstyle. We were kind of a hot mess all together that day.), the hairstyle will usually stay looking good for at least another day after you have done it, AND when the buns start looking a little bent out of shape you can take them out and they leave the most adorable ringlets behind that make for a super cute ponytail on the last day. If your girls are anything like mine, they HATE getting their hair washed. This hairstyle is a saving grace that it lets me get away with not washing her hair for about 2 days, so we can enjoy bath time without the dreaded hair washing fight. [Read more…]

Five Minute Hair: Headband Twists

Let’s face it, we are all busy. Most of us don’t have time to focus on our hair as long as we wish we could. It is important to have some great hairstyles that you can go to easily on the days that you are in a major hurry. This crossed over headband twist hairstyle is one of my favorites for those busy days.

This hairstyle looks even better on hair that has more dimension in it. I don’t really have highlights in my hair right now so it is a little harder to see, but on hair with highlights, or lighter hair in general, this hairstyle looks really awesome. Sometimes the twists are a little harder to see in darker hair, so sorry if you can’t see them as well! [Read more…]

Messy Braided Double Bun: Five Minute Hairstyle

I am all about embracing dirty hair for a few days after I  have washed it so that I don’t have to damage it as much by straightening it everyday. That is why I love this Messy Braided Double Bun that I am sharing with you today! It is perfect for second or third day hair before you wash it again and it takes just about five minutes to do, depending on how quickly you can braid.

Pulled Back Fishtail Braid

I have naturally curly hair, but wear it straightened out most of the time. When I straighten my hair out, I am basically committing that I am not going to wash my hair for a few days because straightening my entire head everyday is so bad on my hair. It is good for me to have a few hairstyles that I know would look good on my 2nd or 3rd day after straightening my hair, without getting out the curling wand or flat iron again. I love the look of fishtail braids, but don’t necessarily love the look on me when all of my hair is pulled back into one. I decided to have the best of both worlds by keeping my hair down and doing a fishtail braid as well! It takes about five minutes and adds some sass to a boring hair day.

How to make dry hair healthy


How to make dry hair healthy on www.girllovesglam.com

I live in a really dry climate and my hair suffers from it, big time! My ends split over and over again and my scalp gets really flaky. It is the worst! Now that the weather has once again started to cool down, my hair has started to feel as sad as it has in the past cold weather seasons. My scalp started feeling itchy and my hair was beginning to lose the shine I had worked so hard to get. All of the popular hairstyles right now have one thing in common, silky, shiny hair! That can’t be obtained when your hair is unhealthy. [Read more…]

Mother Daughter Twist Hairstyles on www.girllovesglam.com

I love having a little girl. It is so fun to get her dolled up. She loves it! She loves doing her hair, playing with my hair, and getting all dressed up. She is all girl! I thought it would be fun to have a matching hairstyle, but not so much so that it looked like we had the exact same hairstyle. I chose to create a twisted hairstyle that was a little juvenile and one that was more of a grown up version of it. [Read more…]
