This week I’ve been trialling some new hair styles I found on pinterest but never got around to actually doing them. What I find about most pinterest hair styles is that they all begin with blow drying and curling your hair, or just the first part?! I for one don’t have time to blow dry my hair, unless its a super special occasion! My hair is thick, naturally curly / frizzy and reasonably long so it takes FOREVER to blow dry and style. I chose three styles that are shown on straight hair to see how they would look with curls.

This is my hair – no style


Style 1


Take two sections from the front of your hair and plait them, softly, either side.


I liked how this turned out, however the plaits aren’t as noticeable against messy curls.


Style 2


Take one strip of hair from the centre front and french braid it. Secure with elastic and repeat 4 more times, two on each side (like shown).


This I also liked, I think this looks just as good with curly hair, but it would be even better if my hair was pink!


Style 3


Take two large sections of hair from the front, twist into a small bun on each side. Secure with elastic and pins.


This is my fave! I think it looks just as cute with the curls and I feel like a kitten 😉

Definitely worth trying these out, I think braids and buns are going to become bigger trends so get in there first!
