Hair Inspired: Taylor Hill’s Half Top Knot


The gorgeous Taylor Hill shows us the best hairdo: the half top knot!  If you’re like me and you don’t like having your hair all the way down, then this is the perfect hairdo for you!

You simply pull back a portion of the top of your head, making sure to leave the sides loose, and twist the potion into a bun.  It’s definitely a nod to the 1990’s grunge era–relaxed but still casual cool.  I’ve seen a lot of bloggers wear this look, because it’s really flattering and so simple.  Make sure to keep it all a little messy–have a few flyaways and stray pieces, so it looks more worn in.  Check out Taylor Hill’s half top knot below!

The Simplest Hair Style For Autumn/Winter!


Ever since I cut my hair short, I’ve been dreaming of longer hair and being able to braid it without short pieces poking out.  Instead of having hair in a ponytail, the cutest style is braiding it.  It’s simple and so feminine–perfect for when you’re wearing scarves, a turtleneck, even a t-shirt and jacket. I love the loose whimsical type braid, as well as the tighter braid, like Megan Fox below.  So next time you’re having a bad hair day, or you just want your hair to be back but not in a ponytail, try one of the bottom two braids–so chic and so easy!

Which one is your favorite?

The Best Way to Change Your Hair For Fall/Winter!


When the season starts changing from hot to cold, I always have the desire to change my hair.  For some reason, for me, the two things go hand in hand.  If you’re like me and you don’t want to cut or color your hair, the best way to change your hair for fall and winter is to get bangs!

You can get bangs cut above the brows like Lily Aldridge on the cover of S Moda magazine, or you can get longer bangers that hit you below the eye, like Rihanna.  Rihanna also rocked the shorter bangs like Lily a couple of years ago when she was a blonde and it looked amazing!  While I like both looks a lot, I really love Rihanna’s because you don’t have to fully commit to bangs–if you feel like having bangs, you can have them showing, but if not, tuck behind the ears and no one would know.

The Must Have Haircut of Summer!


Lately, I have been loving short hair but I absolutely adore Hailey Baldwin’s haircut!  My hair is currently a couple inches longer than my shoulder but I want to make the leap to short hair and Hailey’s hair is going to be my inspiration.  It’s short yes, but the ends are textured, giving the look volume and youthfulness.  It’s edgy but still really manageable.

If you are thinking of chopping off your hair, think about this look.  Ask for textured ends and no layers except for some light face framing layers in the front.

Take a look at some photos of her gorgeous hair!  Tell me what you think of this short ‘do!
