Tips & Tricks #4: Sharks (hair that pokes out)

October 06, 2008

Have you ever gotten completely done with a braid only to find one rogue piece of hair bumping out? These little flyers can ruin even the best of hairstyles! I call these flyers ‘sharks‘ since they often look like a shark fin on the head. Nobody wants to start over after already doing the whole hairdo.

Here’s a trick that works with most sharks. This one is hard to see, but if you look at the second braid to the left, right where the braid changes from a french braid to a regular braid, you will notice a shark (yes I’m really quite picky!)…

Take a bobby pin and grab the middle of the shark. Push bobby pin down into hair until hidden. This takes the excess hair in the shark and incorporates it back into the braid…

Voila!! A now-hidden Shark! (I am using my comb in this shot to show you where the bobby pin ended up.)

Happy Hairdoing!

Tips & Tricks #2: Use Good Hairstyle Products

October 04, 2008

The trick in doing great hairstyles is to have the hair looking healthy and conditioned. The best way to get such wonderful hairdo’s is to use dependable products. In fact, when doing girls hair it is really important to find the best products that work for you.

I am on a budget with five kids so I try to find affordable, yet reliable styling products.

Water for wetting down the hair is always a good idea. I am also a big fan of hairspray as well… in particular, I like RAVE 4x MEGA hairspray. For very fine hair, which tends to fall out, I use the Got2B Glued Gel or Got2B Blasting Freeze Spray. For extra loose spots or little fly-aways, try using a good Pomade to help smooth and hold in place.

Whatever your choice of products, make sure they are good, work well, and USE them!!

Happy Hairdoing!
