Spring Hairstyles!

Half Updo_Twisted_Flower

Hi guys! Lately, I’ve been looking for and trying to think of new ways to do my hair for the springtime. My hair is layered, so buns and braids end up being sort of disastrous for me…but that didn’t stop me from experimenting!

I found the above picture online, and thought it was a cute but easy spring hairstyle idea…I usually put my hair up in half updos, but I usually just pin them with a bow in the middle or something. This seemed like an easy way to change it up a little.

Anyways, I just wanted to share this with you guys…hope you’re all enjoying the beginning of spring!


DIY: Easy Hairpin

2015-01-30 19.50.28

Wednesday…usually considered one of the dreariest days of the week. I decided to spruce up this Wednesday, though, which a little DIY I just did myself last week. I don’t know if this is already online somewhere (It probably is…everything’s online these days), but I decided to share it anyways.

This DIY takes less than 5 minutes, is cheap and is also incredibly easy. What more could you ask for, right?

All You Need: Dangly earrings (Ones with jump rings you can open), a bobby pin and some pliers.

I find that the textured bobby pins (Like the one pictured above) work best, because the charms are less likely to fall off.

There are only really 3 steps in this simple DIY, so here we go!

1) Detach the dangly charm(s) from the earring.

2) Close the jump ring using your pliers.

3) Slide the charm(s) onto the bobby pin.

You can also add jump rings to charms and basically customize these any way you want…I find that these little pins are a great way to spruce up any bun! You just have to be careful when taking them out of your hair, but you can switch up the charms whenever you want.

I don’t have my ears pierced, but I still receive earrings as gifts sometimes, and I also occasionally see earrings that I absolutely love. I couldn’t believe I didn’t think of using them this way before. And you can make a matching pair of pins, too! I used the other half of these earrings to make a necklace, but you can do whatever you want with them.

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your February, and see you soon!
