Calling all curly girls! Here’s a fun, fancy little updo for you. We get lots of requests for updos on curly hair from our readers who want to embrace their natural texture. Working with curls when doing an updo is so much fun because almost anything you do looks romantic + girly! This tutorial is pretty easy and you can accessorize it with anything you want. Here we added a necklace from J. Crew (incorporating jewelry into the hair is always SO much fun!) but you can add flowers, a headband, or just leave it plain + simple! If you don’t have curly hair and you want this look, you can always spend some time and curl your entire head with 5/8″ or 3/4″ barrell iron and then follow along! Let’s do it…
- On clean, combed, wet hair work a golfball-sized dab of mousse into your hair. Start at the root and work down.
- Diffuse your hair or you can just let it airdry if you’re not a fan of the diffuser.
- If you have any extra frizzy/misbehaved bits, wrap curl them around a 5/8″ barrell curling iron.
- Add a light hold styling spray if your curls feel too soft. Nothing too sticky! You don’t want to rough up the curls by pulling them apart after using a strong hairspray.
- Separate the “bangs” section as you see in photo 5. Clip that away and save it for later.
- Pull up half of your hair. Start behind the ears and pull it up on top near the crown.
- Twist that whole section and pin it in place.
- Use a ponytail holder (best if you use one that matches your own hair color) to make a ponytail in back. You want the ponytail to end up right below that bone that you can feel in the back of your head (the occipital bone).
- Roll that ponytail up into a loose, messy bun and pin using large bobby pins.
- Take the “bangs” section out of the clip.
- Pull it back, twist and secure into the bun.
- Once that’s secured, spray everything with a light holding hairspray.

Encourage Your Waves
This quick tip is dedicated to all you gorgeous gals with “almost there but not quite” waves. You will need: Setting clips, tissue paper (I didn’t want to put tissue paper in the photo because it would have blocked too much of the pattern, but you can put a tiny piece of tissue under each clip to avoid creases!), setting spray, and light serum.
- Air dry your hair as you normally would. Try not to brush your hair after you get out of the shower!
- Once it’s 85% dry, lightly mist the top layer with your setting spray.
- Use your tissue paper and clips to set the waves in place. Try to match the pattern of your own natural waves below. It shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes to get these in place!
- Let it sit for about 20 minutes while you get dressed/do your makeup. If you need to, use your blowdryer on low and give it a little heat help. Make sure you use a nozzle and that your dryer is pointed down toward the floor to avoid frizz.
- Once you remove the clips, add a little bit of a light serum to your ends and a quick veil of light hold hairspray.
If your hair is super-straight on top, this might not work for you but it’s worth a shot! You may find that your top layer just needed a little more support!

Valentine’s Day Date Hair

- Leave two sections out in front (basically everything from your ears forward) and clip them forward. Imagine the back of your head split into 3 sections. If you want a little volume, tease the crown and then make your first bun in back. Pin using small bobbypins and make sure the bun feels secure. If your hair is really thick and you need to use clear elastics as well, go for it.
- Next make bun number two right below that and pin.
- Now make the third (final) bun on the bottom and pin. These buns don’t need to be perfect– in fact, I think they’re better when they’re all a little different and have some texture.
- Using the hair in front that you left out, make 2 braids on each side and tie them off with the tiny clear elastics. You want to make one from the bottom half of your section and one from the top half of your section. Gently pull them apart to add some texture so they don’t look too “done”.
- You should have two braids on each side as you see in photo 5.
- Take the bottom braid from one side and wrap it around the bottom bun. You want to slide the braid in between the lowest bun and the middle bun and then wrap it around the base of the bun and pin it in place.
- I’ve illustrated a pattern in photo 7 so you can see how the braids are wrapped around.
- Once you’ve pinned your braids into place, check your balance in back by using a hand mirror. Make sure it looks good from all sides. Pin any unwanted stray hairs or fly aways and voila!
Hope everyone gives this a shot no matter what hair type you have. It’s a super-quick updo and it could be a great look for an upcoming VALENTINE’S date! xo
We <3 Valentine's Manicures!

It’s almost Valentine’s day!! Whether you’re celebrating or not, a heart mani always looks simple + sweet. After trying to get a perfect heart a million different ways, I finally figured out the best way to do it. Washi tape! You can order it online, find it at a stationery store, or I’ve even seen it at Target in the stationery section. Washi tape is much less sticky than regular tape so you don’t have to worry about it adhering and pulling off your base color so much. Okay, here’s how we got the perfect heart!
- You’ll need a red, a metallic gold + a gold glitter. I used this for my red, this for my metallic gold + this for my gold glitter.
- You’ll also need washi tape and small scissors. I used the kind for trimming brows.
- Paint your nails with the red and let them dry for a few hours. I like to let the base dry overnight just to be safe.
- Cut a 2-3″ piece of washi tape, fold it in half but leave the ends apart like you see in photo 4.
- Place the open ends of the washi tape on your pointer finger on the opposite hand you cut with. Cut out a half heart that is a little less than half the width of the nail you’re putting the heart on.
- Gently peel your washi tape open to see the full heart.
- Place it on the nail and press the edges with a soft, dry, clean paintbrush.
- Paint the metallic coat first. This will give you the perfect heart shape, which you can’t get when using glitter polish alone.
- Now add the glitter polish on top of that.
- Peel your tape off slowly while the metallic and glitter polishes are still wet. You don’t want them to dry to the washi tape.
You can use a detailing brush to add more glitter to the heart if you want to. Add a top coat once the glitter heart has dried. xo
