Month of no heat hairstyles: Week 2

Well hello!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! We spent the weekend camping at our favorite park for Nathan's birthday. (Which is the day before Valentine's Day.) We aren't big Valentine's people so we don't typically celebrate it. But being camping definitely brought on a lot of hat wearing, which I LOVE.
So I know I'm a week late posting the second week, seeing as we are in the 3rd week, but I wanted to catch up and give you guys some different hairstyles that weren't just covered up by hats! So here is week 2 of no heat hairstyles:

(Left to right)

1: This was at Nathan's birthday lunch. I just pulled back the sides into a simple half up do, with bobby pins holding the back into place.

2: Here is one of the hat pictures that I mentioned before. So really nothing to it. The beauty of throwing a hat on and not having to worry about your hair! I love it. 

3: All down here, nothing exciting, just freshly washed hair. 

4: When I'm at the salon I hate having my hair fall in my face while I'm working so I twist the front section of my hair back out of my face and pin it in place. 

5: Here is the same type of style as before except instead of a twist I french braided the front section off to the side and secured into place.

6: One of my favorite styles is the half up bun. Quick and easy but still cute!

7: Here I just pulled all of my hair to one side and twisting the very back and bottom of it I bobby pinned it into place leaving the rest down. 

Things you will need:

1: Bobby pins
2: Comb
3: Hairspray
4: Hat ;)
5: Hair Tie 
6: Some sort of teasing comb

Month of no heat hairstyles: Week 1

So recently my hair has not been agreeing with me. Usually when this happens I just either trim my ends or do a deep conditioner to revive it and add tons of moisture. However neither of those options worked for me this time. So I decided to make the month if February a "month of no heat hairstyles." And no it has nothing to do with it being a short month, although that is a perk! I already miss my curling iron more than I ever thought I could miss an object before. But I know it will be worth it in the long run, and not only can I try out a bunch of fun different styles but it will also save the integrity of my hair by giving it a break from all the heat!

So here is my first week of heatless styles:

(Left to right)
1: This was SuperBowl Sunday so I had to represent the Hawks, so I just threw a beanie on top of 3 day old hair and scrunched in some texturizer in my ends.

2: Fish braid off to the side with a few tendrils around the face and bobby pins holding the back loose pieces into place. 

3: I had a lacy headband that I used to roll all of my hair up into and then bobby pinned to hold in place. Super quick and so much easier than you would think!

4: This was airdried after washing it the night before and sleeping in damp hair. I just ran my fingers through it in the morning and left it down for the day since it was just a lazy day at home.

5: This was an early morning for me since I had to be up at 5:30 so I just threw it up into a quick bun. This is my go to quick do. 

6: I teased the top of my hair and put it all into a very low ponytail. Separating the hair directly above the hair tie, you'll pull the whole pony tail up and over through the hole that you just separated. Then I braided it all the way down and tied it off with another hair tie. Then I rolled it up into a bun and secured it with bobby pins. 

7: Today I just threw a baseball hat on and scrunched some texturizer into my ends and called it good. 

Things you'll need:

1: brush/comb
2: teasing comb
3: bobby pins
4: hairspray
5: texturizer (I use 'not your mothers beach babe texturizing lotion.')
6: hair ties
7: headband

SuperBowl makeup/month of no heat styles

Happy Super Bowl Day!!!! We're all about the Hawks over here so I decided to do my makeup in honor of them. 

I used:
Urban decays naked2 palette 
Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz 
Younique cosmetics mascara
Gerard cosmetics buttercream lipstick 
Maybellines gel liner in blackest black
Loreal true match lumi foundation
Maybellines fit me concealer 
Today also marks the first day of my "1 month of no heat" challenge. So for the hair, it's day three since I last washed it, so I just threw a beanie on over top and ran some beachy texturizer through my ends and called it good. Rollin with the messy look today. The texturizing lotion I used was "not your mothers' beach babe texturing hair cream" which I just emulsified in my hands and scrunched into the ends of my hair.

Stay tuned for this full weeks no heat hairstyles! And don't forget to subscribe!
