  1. The messy side ponytail ALWAYS comes in handy when your hair is dirty. I spray it with dry shampoo and pin it up. Works well and people compliment me on my dirty hair :)

  2. I love that small round-up bun. Guess that will look great for my next summer trip

  6. I feel as if my sole purpose here on Earth is to find true love. What is true love exactly? I feel like true love is when you can accept some one for who they are 100%, and have no remorse towards them. No matter what the other person’s faults are, you should be able to look past them all. Another big role in true love is trust. You cannot love someone if you don’t trust them 100%. Without a trustworthy bond a relationship can only get so far. Eventually an untrustworthy relationship will come crumbling down to the ground before your eyes.
    I was seeking this beautiful feeling of love all my life until I found! allowed me to search for love without having the stresses of society being put on my back. I felt as if I was free and could be myself 100%. There are so many different types of people anyone can look for. My old taste in men was dumped down the drain because there are so many different types of men I could search for. For once in my life I didn’t feel like I had to pretend to be someone else.

  7. These are such beautiful pictures. Wavy hair was amazing… I wish my hair could look like that, but it always ends up looking like crap. Lovely though!

  9. Thanks for sharing this post! It’s definitely helpful for when it’s time for holiday pictures! One Christmas I was having the worst hair day imaginable and so I borrowed my cousin’s bobbi boss wig and although I never wore a wig before, I loved it! That wig saved my bad hair day!

  10. So lovely.. I’ll definitely ask my stylist on the hair salon to view these holiday hair styles for professional recommendation on what will be the best hair style that will fit my facial structure :)

  11. Simply lovely and with that I believe my woman will be more beautiful and captivating and I can’t wait to see her that neat and simple. If you don’t mind try visiting eindianhair review because I believe this is related to what you are doing.

  12. Thanks your share. 24 inch hair extensions will give you not only the extra length, but gorgeous thickness and volume to your look. Long hair can be great for working lots of different styles! 24 inch hair extension is the best choice to perfect hair without damaging your own hair. At, we supply best clip in hair extensions to you with different textures and various colors.

  13. This is actually very useful. I’ve learned to do my own hair a long time ago but I must admit that I still don’t have it all figured out yet. I still need some new input in order to improve my style in different ways. I have a personal hairdressers adelaide to make it when it’s rush though, it’s quite convenient.

    • The holiday hair tutorial is shared on the post here. Know all about it

  14. so lovely..thank you for sharing.. |ti

  15. Yessssss I’m in the process of revamping how I style my hair and this is providing me with some great motivation!

  16. I love those twisty buns. I’m so rubbish at doing my own hair! :(

  17. I finally mastered the Messy French Bun–thank you Joanna–these tutorials are wonderful!

  18. The messy side ponytail is my favourite! And the only hairdo of your 14 tutorials that I can do without bobbypins injuries!!! ;-)

  19. Love these looks! Could you do a short hair tutorial sometime? I have a pixie cut, and I am always wondering what products are best to use. I have trouble finding styling products that give my hair texture without making it look spiky or stiff. Just a post with a bunch of cute pixie cuts that I could show my stylist would also be great. Swanks!

  20. Alas! If only I had long straight hair :o) Bring on the short and curly tutorials!!

  21. I can’t wait for your gift guide to begin! It’s always so fun and inspiring.

  22. Yay for the gift guide! I need some help this year.

  23. This is literally my favourite post! Absolutely love it.
    Each and every one of them is lovely, everyone at work will be shocked when I wear each of these for the next two weeks…

  27. Love playing with my hair and have a few holiday shindigs coming up! :) x

  28. I wish you (and every other blog) would do a few hair styles that someone with slightly shorter hair can pull off. My hair is a couple inches past my shoulders but I can’t do most of these. Also, some hairstyles down instead of up always?

    • ditto. i need ideas for my short hair too!

  29. love these!!!

  30. The messy side ponytail ALWAYS comes in handy when your hair is dirty. I spray it with dry shampoo and pin it up. Works well and people compliment me on my dirty hair :)

  31. will definitely be making use of this ….thanks for the round up will be playing around with these all evening !

  32. All of these are so beautiful!! I have such long hair and styling it takes forever but it is so thick that some of these styles cant even contain it…I am going to try them. This list is very comprehensive, Thanks for posting!

  33. Thanks for doing this round-up. I’m growing my hair out of a bob now…can’t wait to go back to being able to do these styles again. I especially love that messy French bun.

  34. This post is sure going to come in handy!!

    Thanks for sharing!

  35. Any chance that you could do a hair tutorial for shorter hair? My hair comes halfway between my chin and shoulders (and is slightly layered), so it is too short to do any of these. Oh, but they are so, so beautiful (and so is your friend!). How do some people make beauty look so easy? So jealous. :-)

    • Ditto this!

  36. Ooh, thank you for making a round up of all of these. I’ve been experimenting with my hair more and more recently, and it’s gotten to the point where it’s successful about 30% of the time instead of 3% of the time. :) Thanks!

  37. Aww, they are all brilliant and the three twisted buns make my heart skip a beat. It’s so romantic yet so easy:) Kisses

  38. I love these tutorials! They are so pretty, and easy enough to follow. Thanks for posting again, I will be trying out the three twisted buns for a holiday party!
