Hairstyles That Hide Blemishes

One of the biggest skin related misconceptions is that once you’ve made it through puberty, you shouldn’t get a blemish ever again. While some individuals are lucky enough to have the complexion of a porcelain doll, the vast majority of us still experience blackhead breakouts, cystic flare-ups, and pesky pimples. Some women find that blemishes occur when they’re under a lot of stress, others may notice these imperfections at certain times of the month, and some women can’t pinpoint a single cause of their blemishes. But let’s face it, pimples aren’t fun for anyone – no matter what the reason! Whether you’re just not into caking on the cover-up or you’re sick of reapplying it every few hours, you’ll be delighted to know that there are indeed hairstyles that hide blemishes. Below you will find two different hairstyles, each a bit different from the other, but both equally suitable to cover up the imperfection that has made its mark on your face. Browse through the blemish hiding hairstyles below and show that sucker who’s boss!

Braided Crown
This artsy blemish masking hairdo is perfect for covering those pesky pimples that run along the hair line, as well as those unsightly forehead zits that make you cringe every time you wash your face. After your hair has been washed and died, go ahead and cover your blemish with the treatment of your choice, then allow it to dry for a few moments. When you’re ready, grab a small section of hair behind your ear, separate it into three sections and begin a French braid. As you move along draw pieces from the back to pull to the front and incorporate into the braid. You want to be sure that you’re leading the braid along the top of your forehead, this way it ends right around the opposite ear. Use a small elastic to secure the end, then use your fingers to flatten and widen the braid. Then lay it across the top of your forehead so that there’s no visible space between your hairline and the braid, then secure it behind the ear with some bobby pins.

Faux Side Bangs
This style is also commonly referred to as “the swoop.” This style is perfect for hiding any imperfections that pop up on your forehead, brows, and even the temple area. Simply start by creating a deep side part, so that about three-quarters of your hair is pulled to one side. Also, when creating your side part, keep in mind that you’ll want the side with more hair to be the side that your blemish is on. If you typically need extra volume, go ahead and give your hair a good tease now. You’ll notice that there are strands of hair falling into your face, trying to make it back to the natural part. Swoop those strands so that they lay diagonally across your forehead. Bring the remaining hair behind your ear and slip in some bobby pins to keep it all in place.

Simple Updos You Can Style at Home

One of the best things about social media today is the encouragement of sharing and using all kinds of DIY tips; from baking to cleaning, makeup to hair, the internet has an indefinite amount of tips and trick. Of course, this is all fine and dandy, even more exciting when you find a new hack and it actually works! However, we’ve all experienced the anticipation in the promise that a specific hack will work, only to be let down. We noticed that a particularly large amount of hack-let-downs are owed to the disappointment of DIY updos. The problem isn’t necessarily in the updo itself, rather, it’s the amount of skill required to create the updo – which many people confirm they don’t have after a few attempts – that can drive a DIYer crazy. Fortunately, we understand that the majority of you aren’t hair stylists. Although we also understand that you also want to the independence of creating an elegant updo without having to make an appointment at the salon. For this reason, we have selected some simple, yet stunning updos that you can easily style at home.

Disclaimer: It is important to keep in mind, before starting any hairstyle, to have an open and accepting mind of your final ‘do. Seldom do hairstyles turn out exactly as they are shown in pictures (even when professional stylists attempt them), which is why it’s important to find the beauty in your work and any imperfection. Oh, and one more thing: don’t wash your hair… styling clean hair can be a major pain! Whether you skip the shampoo or add a good amount of product to your hair, it’ll be much easier than attempting to style squeaky clean stands.

Flirty twisted updo
Separate your hair into two even sections. Select a small section by your temple and begin to twist it away from your face. Once you’ve twisted a few inches, grab another small section from the hair below it and marry the two by twisting them together. Continue the process until the entire side of your hair is twisted, at which point you should keep twisting until the hair starts to coil and pull itself into the scalp. Secure the twist with a few hair pins, then repeat the process on the other side.

French twist
For this ‘do, it’s important to begin with a volumizing product. Then you’ll want to separate your hair into a horizontal part, which is basically like creating a half-ponytail, but instead of using your thumbs to separate your hair, you’re going to use a comb to create a part that goes straight across from one ear to another. For extra volume, tease this top section, then twist it just a few times and secure the “tail” against your head. Gather together all the hair of the bottom section, starting at the nape of the neck, twist all the hair upwards. Once it’s twisted all the way up you can start to incorporate the ends of top section with the twisted section. Finally, tuck the ends of the hair underneath itself, be sure to secure it with hair pins and some strong hold spray.

Chic Chignon
Start with a low side part that is parallel to your eyebrow. Bring all your to whichever side of your head is opposite of your part and create a low side ponytail. Divide the pony in half, then create a rope braid. To do this you’ll want to twist both sections in the same direction, once their twisted to the bottom twist them over each other in the opposite direction. Continue twisting in the opposite direction until you’ve reached the bottom, and secure the rope braid with a small clear elastic. Now wrap the rope braid around itself, similar to the way a cinnamon is wrapped. Slip in a few bobby pins to hold everything in place and finish with some hair spray!

  6. Once you’re no longer able to incorporate “dropped” pieces,  incorporate the tail of the waterfall braid into a regular braid with the reaming hair of the Dutch braid. Be sure that to secure the braid with an elastic.
  7. Now, grab a section of hair on the other side of your head, divide it into three sections and make a French braid. Continue on until you’ve reached the bottom and secure it with an elastic.
  8. Finally, take any remaining hair that’s in the back of your head and the tails of the braids and twist it all together into a bun. Hold it in place with a few hairpins, add some hair spray, and you’re good to go!

Creating Cute Ponytails, Pigtails, & Buns

Put your hair up in a bun, drink some coffee and handle it.

We all have those days. You know, the ones where you think you’ve gotten back into your back to school sleep routine, so you feel confident that staying up late to watch the season premiere of Modern Family won’t change your ability to wake up at six a.m. Except, you find yourself rolling out of bed at a quarter after seven rushing around the house getting ready, hoping you’ll make it to your eight a.m. class in time. We’re all human – things like this happen. It’s time’s like these that you don’t need to apply your extra-long falsies, or curl your hair to perfection. All you need to do is slather on some CC cream, throw your hair up, and make sure the lid is screwed on to your coffee mug tight because you’re about to slay the day.

A major miss conception about the term “throwing your hair up” is that the resulting hairstyle will be a major messy bun or sideways ponytail. But this isn’t always the case! There are plenty of other ways to quickly style your hair so that it looks fab. Whether you’re running late, or just like your hair out of your face, check out the mini tutorials below on how to create cute ponytails, pigtails, and buns in just a few moments!

Women with a stylish side ponytail

Double Twisted Side Ponytail
This pony is super stylish and beyond easy. All you need is a single hair elastic and maybe some hairspray if your hair is thin and tends to slide out of style throughout the day. Start by twisting the hair on one side of your head along the hairline. Keep twisting, grabbing more hair as you go along. Once your twisted hair reaches the back of your ear, use the elastic you have on hand to secure it. Now repeat the same twisting method on the other side of your head. Take the elastic out of the first twist and use it to secure the two twists together into a single ponytail.

Dutch Braid Ponytail
Who doesn’t love the charm of a loose Dutch braid? Not only are they cute, but we thank the style gods because they’re super easy! If you don’t already know how to do a Dutch braid, it may be wise to practice ahead of time, however, as we said they are very easy: it’s very much like a French braid, the only difference being that you cross the outer sections under the center section, instead of over. To create the Dutch braid ponytail, begin by taking a small section of hair a few inches above the ear and creating a side Dutch braid. Secure the end of the braid with a small elastic. Next, use your thumb and index finger to pinch and loosen the braid giving it a full, boho look. Then pull all of your hair (including the braid) to the center of the back of your head, and secure it with an elastic that matches the color of your locks.

Phish Tails
Some people say pigtails are just for children, we disagree! Rock a set of modern and mature pigtails by separating your hair into two sections. Then do a fishtail style braid into each pigtail. Once you’ve secured each pigtail with an elastic, use your fingers to loosen them up for a fuller look.

Braid -Up Bun
This super cute look takes no more than ten minutes and only a few hair accessories. Separate the top half of your hair as if you were going to do a half-up-half-down ponytail, but instead of a ponytail, you’re going to braid it. Secure the end of the braid with a small elastic, and loosen it just a bit with your fingers. Now wrap the braid like a cinnamon bun around itself. Once you can’t wrap anything more, use a few hair pins to secure your braided bun in place.

Creating A Chic Braid

No matter what the season, where the event takes place, or the time of day, a chic braid is always appropriate. Going to and evening wedding at the Ritz? A braided updo is a perfect choice. Meeting your crush for an early morning coffee date? A messy braid will complete your yoga and hoodie ensemble. The best part about braided hairstyles is that many of them are actually easy to do! Granted, there are plenty of braided styles that stump even the most talented of stylists, but the majority of them look much more intimidating than they actually are… seriously. Below are step by step tutorials for two different chic braids, check it out!

The Fab and Faux Fishtail

  1. Begin by pulling all of your hair to the back of your heady and securing it into a low pony. For the best-finished result, we recommend securing it with a sturdy clear elastic (or two-to-three of tiny clear ones so that they provide a stronger hold) or a regular hair tie that matches your hair color.
  2. Stick your thumb under the elastic and up through the center of the hair above the elastic. If you’ve done it correct you should be about to pull the half section of your hair apart from the other half by using your thumb and index finder.
  3.  With your free hand grab the “tail” of the ponytail, flip it up and tuck it through the opening that you’ve just made with your thumb. You’ll pull the hair all the way through. It should look as if you have a few inches of a fishtail above your ponytail.
  4. Three-or-so inches below the original elastic, wrap another clear or color-matching elastic around the hair and use your fingers to separate the section of hair between the two elastics (the same way you did in step 2).
  5. Just as you did in step 3, flip and tuck the “tail” of the ponytail through the opening.
  6. Repeat septs 4 and 5, adding as many sections as the length of your hair permits.

Triple Braided Knot

  1. The first thing you’ll want to do is back comb or tease a wide section of hair that runs along your hairline which lies at the crown of your hair. This will create the volume you need to slay this sexy updo.
  2. Divide your hair into three even sections. Secure each section with a tiny clear elastic.
  3.  Braid each of the sections moderately tight, then secure them at the end with another elastic.
  4. Even though you braided each braid moderately tight, use your pointer finger and thumb to pull the hair apart, this way the braid becomes wider and appears a bit fuller.
  5. Twist each braid around itself until it coils on itself. At this point, it should be twisted all the way to the base of the section. Secure it to your scalp by inserting color matching bobby pins.
  6. Repeat the previous step to the remaining two braids, then give your updo a bit of extra hold with some hairspray.

Faux & Half Hawks

The faux hawk trend has taken the hair industry by storm; Like clothing, it is typical for hair styles to go in and out of fashion, but it seems that faux hawks and half hawks are here to stay. The term itself, faux hawk, does have a sort of intimidating ring to it. In fact, a simple Google search on the beauty term brings up the following definition: a hairstyle in which a section of hair running from the front to the back of the head stands erect, intended to resemble a Mohawk haircut (in which the sides of the head are shaved). After giving the definition some attention it’s understandable as to why many women were apprehensive about trying the look at first, giving it a slow climb to popularity. However, with the faux hawk on top we have put together two very easy to follow tutorials: the first one for a classic, all up faux hawk, and the second for a flirty, half hawk.

Faux hawk hairstyle

The Faux Hawk:

  1. Using your thumbs, pull the center front section of your hair back to create a poof, then secure with two bobby pins.
  2. Now, slide your fingers into your both sides of your hair so that you are pulling back the hair which is about halfway between your poof and your ears. Merge the hair you’ve gathered on both sides together, securing it directly under your poof with an elastic.
  3. Use a hair large hair clip to move that ponytail away from the rest of your hair. As in step 2, slide your fingers into your hair, this time grabbing the sections of hair which are right above the ears, then pull them together and secure them with a loop right under the first pony.
  4. Continue to make ponytails that are the same or similar thickness as the first two, depending on your hair type you should finish with about 5-7 individual ponytails. As you pull the hair back, it may be helpful to use a brush to smooth out the hair so that it doesn’t have any unkempt-looking hair bumps. Do your best to keep each ponytail the same distance from the previous. Once you’ve finished gave the sides of your head a spritz of hair spray.
  5. Use a medium-to-large barrel curling iron to curl each section of hair, being sure to curl each pony in multiple sections, not all at once.
  6. Starting back at the top, wrap the curled pony loosely around itself, then secure it to your scalp with hair pins. Spray it with some strong hold hairspray before moving onto the next one. Continue on until all your hair is pinned up and you have yourself a faux hawk.

The Half Hawk:

  1. If your hair is not already naturally curly or wavy, it would be beneficial to distribute hair texturizer to your locks before styling.
  2. Slide your fingers on either side of your hair so that you are gathering all the hair parallel to your brows (about an inch-or-so above your ear) to the crown of your head.
  3. As you bring the hair from each side together, use your thumbs to tuck the outer pieces of hair under the center pieces to create body.
  4. Have bobby pins ready to go as you use one hand to hold the hair in place, pinching the tucked hair under. With the other hand slide a few bobby pins (at least three, if not more) on each side so that you are securing those outer-underneath pieces. It’s best to alternate which side you insert the bobby pin so that you create an X with them.
  5. Once you gave the hair secured with hidden bobby pins, you can release your grip and let that half hawk flow. Don’t forget to mist on some strong hold hairspray!

The Many Ways To Wear Bobs and Baby Bangs

The beauty world’s fear of having too-short hair is long gone. With bobs and baby bangs hotter than ever more and more women are wondering if they can pull off a short ‘do. If you too are contemplating a chop, but wondering what your style options will look like, look no further. Below is a handful of ways to style both bobs and baby bangs.

The Many Ways to Wear Bobs

Bob haircuts

Lengths

  • The Classic Bob: The blunt cut that your teenage-self said you would never wear, well now you can rock it. To imagine the size, think of model Karlie Kloss’s fresh cut bob.
  • The Baby Bob: For the women who want to go short, but not that short, the baby bob is a perfect choice. The ends of your hair should be grazing your chin so that it is too long to be considered a bob but too short to be considered a lob. Think of singer Julianne Hough’s short cut.
  • The Lob: The perfect cut when you want to assert your maturity, but still want that extra feminine oomph. The ends of the hair usually fall somewhere between just-above-the-shoulder and just below the collarbone. T.v. personality Khloe Kardashian, singer Nicki Minaj, and actress Ashley Benson have all been seen rocking this length.

Bob haircuts

Looks

  • Messy Curls: The tousled look is a great option for any bob. All you have to do is curl your hair as you normally would, apply a spritz of hairspray, then use your fingers to loosen everything up. If you get some frizzies while doing so, simply rub some anti-frizz serum between your palms and smooth it back down.
  • Tight Curls: Whether you emphasize your natural curls or use a small-barreled curling iron, this classic look work day and night.
  • Twisted Bun: It’s exactly what it sounds like! Simply twist your hair back into a bun, using as many bobby pins as you need to hold it in place. This is great for date night, taking all the hair away from your face so that your fabulous bone structure is the main focus.
  • Bombshell Bump: Yes, the bump is back on the rise, and it’s the perfect way to style your bob. Simply pull back the hair between your temples, give it a quick tease and use pins to hold it back.

Baby bangs

The Many Ways to Wear Baby Bangs:

  • If you have the itch to totally change up your look, a super cute option is a pixie cut with wispy baby bangs. Not only is this look super easy to style in the morning but you’re bound to be bombarded with compliments.
  • If Beyonce has been the inspiration of baby bangs, then you should wear them just as effortlessly as she does. Go for that I-woke-up-like-this look by simply using your fingers to scruff up your bangs once they’re totally dry.
  • If you’re a bit punky like Miss Kelly Osbourne, use a curling iron to give them a tuck.

Over the Rainbow

Rainbow hairstyle

Rainbow colored hair is one of the hottest trends in the beauty world right now! If you’re like the majority of women interested in the look, chances are you have no clue of how to go about the vibrant style. If you are feeling a bit lost in the clouds over the rainbow look – but that’s okay! Read on to gather the info of everything you need to know for rocking the rainbow.

Color and Incorporation
If you’re reading this article, chances are more than likely that you’ve already begun looking into the different colors and styles that fall under the umbrella term of Rainbow Hair. It seems that there are more and more options everyplace you look. If you know you want to go for the look, but are looking for some extra inspiration, here are a just a few of our favorite color palettes and a handful of ways to incorporate the color into your hair:

  • Standard Rainbow: Just as it sounds, standard rainbow uses the six elementary rainbow colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple).
  • Electric Rainbow: This selection of colors is just a bit different from the standard rainbow in that instead of sticking to the typical rainbow shades, the colors are amplified; think of using highlighters to color a rainbow, rather than crayons.
  • Unicorn: This theme is super delicate and ultimately favored by those who typically stick to lighter color palettes. Colors in the unicorn rainbow include silver and very light blue and pink.
  • Watermelon: The daring watermelon rainbow includes the two main colors of the juicy fruit, pink and green.

Keep in mind that the color themes mentioned above make a very limited list. There are many, many more rainbow hair colors including electric watermelon, sherbet, mermaid, and more; the color options are endless. Once you’ve chosen the colors for your new look, you’ll need to decide how you’re going to incorporate the color into your hair.

  • A (very) full set of highlights: this will give you multi-colored streaks evenly throughout your hair.
  • Rainbow Roots: With this method, the rainbow color will not be visible when your hair is styled straight and left down, however as soon as you curl your hair, put it up, or even run your fingers through it, the rainbow color will pop.
  • Under Lights: This is very similar to rainbow roots, the variance being that there is less color and it is more of a streaky color than a chunky root color.
  • Under Layer: this is similar to getting a partial set of highlights; instead of getting the color on top of your head it will be under layers of hair and only visible when you pull your hair up into a ponytail or bun.

When the Trend Ends…
Just like any other bright beauty trend, this one will one day come to an end, which is why it’s important to keep in mind that rainbow hair is a pretty hefty commitment. If you’re not sure you can handle the commitment, there are a number of ways to rock the rainbow with lesser commitment, such as semi-color, hair chalk, and colored hair spray. That said, if you’re up for the commitment, here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind during the heat of the trend, as well as when the trend starts to die down:

  • More likely than not, your stylist will have to bleach your hair prior to adding in a multiplicity of colors. This means that your hair will be extremely fragile as it will have gone through a double process to get where you want it. To maintain your hair’s integrity, it’s a good idea to use a deep conditioning treatment once a week or so. Another way to care for your newly colored hair is to wash it less frequently, this way it has a chance to absorb all those natural oils before they get washed out.
  • Keep in mind the typical fading time for the colors you’ve chosen; you may have residual hair color when the rainbow trend begins to die down. The best thing you can do in this case is to let the color fade naturally. By doing so, you are prolonging any re-damaging of the hair that may happen when you choose to dye your hair again. Typically, green, blue, and purple take the longest to fade.
  • No matter what color you dye your hair, new growth will appear, giving you those oh-so-dreaded-roots. With a “typical” color, you can simply visit your stylist to re-high light the new-growth and solve the problem, but it doesn’t work quite the same with rainbow colored hair. Eventually, you will be waiting for your color to fade, as your roots grow in and the trend has ended. You don’t want to color the roots, as this would only defeat the purpose to letting the color fade. But, remember you did a double process, which means under all that color, the hair cuticle is much lighter than the root, which makes things difficult. The best way to avoid awkward roots is to allow your hair to go through the natural fading process and have your stylist help you get your hair color where you want it.

The country of Japan is recognized worldwide for lush, inimitable culture. The people of Japan are known for their fun, yet modish style. Notorious for following all the latest beauty trends, Japanese women frequently sport unique and head-turning hairstyles.

In addition to their unique cuts, Japanese women are no strangers to wearing the latest hair color trends, as hair dye often complements their fair skin tone.

Kitty Ears
This look is for anyone who likes to be the center of attention. What you’re going to do is create two tiny pigtails that should line up diagonally above your eyes. Use a regular sized hair tie to secure the pigtail, then twist it around and around just until it starts to coil on itself. Next, wrap the twisted pony completely around the hair tie. Once all the hair is wound up, stick two bobby pins at the base of the kitty ear, so that they are crossing over each other like an X. Once secured with bobby pins, use your finger to pull the center of the wrapped hair up just a bit, in order to create the classic pointy kitty ear.

Twisted Bouffant
This half-up-half-down style looks stunning on those with medium length layered hair, plus it takes almost no effort at all! Simply start by pulling your hair into a loose half pony and use the tip of a comb to pull out just a few small sections of hair. Rather than just securing the pony right away, use our fingers to twist the pony atop itself. Once it’s as twisted as you like, slip a few bobby pins in the top and the bottom of the twist. You can even heat the look up a bit by curling the loose hair – perfect for date night.
