BIG NIGHT OUT: 4 WAYS TO STYLE LONG HAIR

When Amity told me she curls her hair with a straightener I didn’t believe her. My long hair never holds a curl! And the fact that I have sensitive skin, limiting the products I can use? #forgetaboutit

Then I heard about this new Rose Gold Ion Smooth Paul Mitchell straightener claiming it heats up to 410° in 60 seconds. I thought it was a gimmick until I tried it… Suddenly I was all heart eyes emoji! A few YouTube tutorials later and I’m curling my hair on the daily. It’s actually addicting!

For the longest time I had this ‘long-hair-don’t-care’ attitude. I’d just wash and go but this iron has me all inspired so I wanted to share a few looks with anyone else who may be stuck in a rut like I was. I’m pretty laid back when it comes to my hair so you’ll notice I’m not crazy about having every hair in place as long as the basic style is there. Easy to do, romantic with curls.

#1. Headband

Trust me, I feel like it’s cheating too. But what a huge difference it makes! You can dress any outfit up with a simple headband and they come in an endless variety of sizes + colors. I personally stick to skinny neutrals so they go with more outfits.

#2. Half-Up Hair

Another super simple one… Tease the crown, scoop up the hair beginning above the ear & secure with a couple bobby pins. I added an optional hairpiece to dress it up a bit!

#3. Side Crown Twist

This one can be tricky the first time but I love the end result. Make a line through the side of your hair with a comb, (like you would a side part, except this one is on the side of your head). Make another line above it, (thickness depending on how thick you want your twist to be) and separate that section from the rest of your hair. To make it easier you can clip the rest of the hair back. Then, start from the front and twist the hair in small increments, all the way to the back and secure with bobby pins.

#4. Top Bun Hair

My go-to whenever I’m having a bad hair day. Throw it up in a ponytail, (secured where your want the final bun to be), tease it near the hair tie, then swirl around till it makes a ball and secure with bobby pins.

{As mentioned above, this straightener does go up to 410° but I keep it to the default setting of 360° and make sure to give my hair a treatment once a week. Leave a comment below if you’re interested in an all natural hair repair tutorial!}
