Sizzling Hairstyles To Try!


I haven't rocked the "half-up, half-down" hairstyle since I was in middle school, but I am a BIG FAN of the infamous "beachy topknot" look.
It's just so easy to do. It takes less than a minute.
And it's effortlessly cute!

There are several ways to play up this simple look:


- the upside down french braid bun


- the donut/sock bun


- the braided high bun


- or the classic lazy day messy top knot


This reminds me, I NEED to go get me one of those sock bun thingies, ASAP!!!

What's your go-to hairstyle?

  1. My go-to hairstyle is definitely this! Messy for casual days and a little polished for work and formal stuff.

  6. I just like the thrown up in a 'whatever' way type of bun. The sock buns and braided buns are all too perfect. I love messy, carefree hair! :)

    And usually I just keep my hair down... I'm trying to grow it out right now since I have short thick hair. Yuk! :)

    Love,

  17. i love beachy topknots! especially the braided ones ;)
    my hair is kinda thin though, so it doesn't look that good on me haha.
    my go-to hairstyle will definitely be a low-side ponytail. it works everytime!

  18. Your an expert on buns! My favourite is the lazy day messy top knot! I've just had my hair cut shorter so I can't do much with my hair anymore except wear it down. Regretting it already! Lovely pictures, keep in touch, bex x

  20. I like the donut very much! There's a girl at work who wears this always perfectly, but I guess my hair is a bit too short at the moment to try this out.
