Ola everyone! Trying something new/different for today’s Elbeef post – a hair tutorial! If you read my Come Clean post, then you’d have an inkling of why I’m hair tutorial-ing all of a sudden.
It’s because this pretty gal inspired me to do so! 🙂 Her hair is always soooo pretty, different, and perfectly coiffed that I needed to know her secret! So we hung out one day and she did just that – share with me her hair skills & secrets! 😉
Aren’t they AWESOME?! And she taught me all that in about an hour or less! 🙂 I’ll be posting a new “Steph Hair Tutorial” every now and then, so if y’all have any hair requests, message me! 😉
TODAY’S HAIR TUTORIAL: THE BOHO PONYTAIL
Believe it or not it’s super easy! To make this simple hairstyle even better, it’s best to start with wavy/curled hair. Steph uses a flat iron to curl hers. You can watch this video on how to create beach waves with a flat iron before we begin! 🙂
All you need for this hairstyle are 5 rubber bands! I told you it’d be easy as pie! 😉
1. Tie your hair up into a ponytail. Steph left some wavy bangs for added boho cuteness! And it’s all about effortlessly messy hair when it comes to being bohemian right? 🙂
2. The Waterfall Step: Take the upper portion of your ponytail (just above the rubber band) and part it in the middle. Then, take the lower portion of your ponytail (AKA THE TAIL) and loop it over the parted upper portion.
We’re looping, we’re looping!
And tadah! After the parting and the looping, this is what your hair should look like. Isn’t it pretty already? You can actually stop here and call it the…Pretty Waterfall..Tail (WHUT! LOL!).
3. Now it’s time to…ATTACK THE PONYTAIL! Well, you can be less aggressive sounding like me and simply focus on the ponytail. Basically you’re just going to repeat the Waterfall Step throughout the length of your ponytail ‘til you reach the end.
The white outlines represent where your rubber bands should go. And from there on out, Waterfall Step each division of your ponytail.
4. Smile and flaunt your pretty boho ponytail! HAHA! But I mean who wouldn’t right?! After all that waterfalling, you and your ponytail deserve a day/night out. 😉
So! How was the first boho hair tutorial? Wasn’t it simple and easy? 🙂 Steph and I will be back soon for more boho hair goodness here on Elbeef! 😉
Have a happy weekend! 🙂
All the best,
P.S. Where can I buy a copy of Candy’s latest Style Guide? 😉 AND I’m jealous of everyone watching The Killers tonight. Ahuhu!
