Breathtaking braids for fall season!

Hi guys!
How are you my lovelies? I noticed one thing today that I’ve not posted stuff about hairstyling.. So today I will share some hairstyle which I’m obsessing over.. I’m obsessing over braids. Braids are still trending as a look they were all the runway this season in every form. Hang tight i’m sharing some of the looks with instructions to create them!! 

  1. Modern Milkmaid braid 
    Part your hair down the center and create loose fishtail braid on both sides (NOTE: you need medium to long hair to pull this look off). Secure each braid with an elastic band. Pull the braids, over the top of your head, crisscrossing them to create a headband effect. Fasten the braids into place with bobby pins. Keep it cool-girl and pull a few wispy, face-framing strands out around the hairline.

  2. Boho Pony Braid
    Start by making one thin braid (about the width of two fingers) on the side of your head where the natural part falls. Then pull your hair and the braid into a messy pony (you can tease the unbraided hair to give it texture). Finish by taking a piece of hair from under your pony and wrapping it around the base of your hair tie (it will look super cool against your pony’s wild texture).

  3. Chic Bun Braid 
    Start by making a loose French braid. Next, take the bottom third of your hair and tuck it under at the nape of your neck. Secure it against your head beneath the thickest part of your braid for a chic bun.

  4. Twisted Braid 
    Take a 3-inch section from each side of your head and split each section into two pieces. Twist the pieces together from mid-length to tip into pseudo braid and repeat it on the other side. Finally loosely tie both sections together at the back of your head.

  5. Mini Mohawk Braid 
    Channel your inner Cara Delevingne and make inch-wide french braids starting at the hairline (spacing them about an inch apart), stopping at the mid-length. Once you’ve created all the braids, pull them into a high pony and use a curling wand to add soft blends to the ends of your ponytail.

Hi guys! so today again I will be talking about hairstyling but today is a bit different. Today i will be talking about haircare and what kind of shampoo one should use for different types of hair! The upcoming posts will be about makeup and styling.
There is such a vast range of shampoos available that sometimes it is difficult to know what is right for your hair! So going through Glamour and Vogue columns I’ve gathered some tips for all of you out there.. 

1. If you have curly hair 
Curly hair is gorgeous, but it can be difficult to control due the frizz. Avoid products that contain silicone as they will not provide your hair the required nourishment. Instead one should use products with natural ingredient like jojoba oil and glycerin. 

2. If you have fine hair
I know girls, having fine hair is so frustrating as they lack volume. If this is your hair type, look for products which will help in building up the volume for hair like volumising shampoo it will help you build up the volume. Natural ingredients such as rosemary and lavender will also do wonders for your hair.

3. If you have damaged hair
If your hair type is damaged or colored or dry all you need to do is moisturize it. Chemical treatments such as straightening and coloring will strip out the moisture. There are special shampoos for damaged and colored hair, remember whenever you wash your hair condition it!

4. If your have oily hair 
Hair can be naturally oily or it can be caused by styling products, if this is your hair type stick to shampoo with sulphates that will remove any left on products on your hair. Also avoid overloading your hair!

Hope you guys liked it!

Snapchat Cosmopolitan! (Day 35)

I believe everyone has a snapchat and can read news and magazines in it! my favorite is reading Cosmo! So i came across this article to tell if short hair will look good or not! The simple trick told by hairstylists were to use the 2.25 inch rule! To try it, position a pencil or pen under your chin horizontally and then place a ruler under your ear, vertically. Take the measurement from the intersection of the pencil and ruler. Less than 2.25 inches and you’d look amazing with short hair and if it’s more, long locks will be most flattering. 

Hope you guys liked it! 🙂
