Trying New Hairstyles

I’m pretty basic when it comes to my hair, and I normally wear the same ‘ol style over and over again and rarely ever switch up and change it.

It’s normally always the puff ponytail with a braid or crinkles on the side, and nothing fancy or new (as you guys have probably already noticed).

But recently I realized “hey, you know what it’s 2017, the weather is getting nicer, my hair is growing out, and I’m kinda sick off of this repetitive hairstyle that I keep reusing every time I do my hair, and I might as well go on ahead and do something different with it” so I did!

And here’s how the hairstyles turned out:

Space buns with bangs

So the first hairstyle I tried was space buns with bangs; and basically I just curled my two front pieces of hair to create loose wavy bangs, and then just made one bun on both sides of my head to finish the look. This hairstyle came out really cute and nice in my opinion, and I truly did like how simple and easy it was even on my first try.

For my second hairstyle, I chose a fro hawk. And thanks to my helpful older sister, she helped make this hairstyle possible by bantu knotting my middle part of my hair and then braided the sides of it, for a mohawk effect. And when we took the bantu knots down the next day, it made it into a really curly poof that I absolutely fell in LOVE with and thought looked super funky and cool.

So I actually asked for help with this hairstyle too, because I’m not very good at french braiding and always seem to have a difficult time gathering my hair into a braid. But this time my mom helped do my hair instead of my sister, and went on ahead and braided both sides of my head and tied it with a rubber band at the tips. I like this hairstyle because it’s easy, fast and reminds me a little bit of the 90s which is something I really like about it, and I will probably do it a lot more often.

And those were all three of the hairstyles I tried; I hope you guys enjoyed this, and hopefully got a little inspiration from them! Don’t forget to leave a comment down below on which hairstyle was your favorite, because I would love to know what you guys thought.

Bye!

My favourite must be the Two French Braids. Great post and will stalk you for a whike so don’t mind me if I like a post that is very very old πŸ˜‰ xx
