Julianne Hough Inspired Updo Tutorial

My girl Jenny from Confessions of a Hairstylist recently cut 6 inches off my hair. Now, I’m always looking for new ways to style the shorter locks and with awards season right around the corner we got inspiration to recreate Julianne Hough’s updo from last year’s Golden Globes. I’m definitely going to be rocking this look for new year’s!

Here is the how-to:

Beachy Waves – How to Curl Hair Using a Flat Iron

I don’t think this hairstyle can get any easier – just prep with beach spray and in less than 10 minutes you are done. Best part is when I’m traveling I only bring a flat iron with me.

I’ve gotten some requests for additional beauty tutorials, please leave a comment below and let me know what you want to see!

DIY Bridal Tulle Headpiece

With wedding season fast approaching, many brides-to-be are looking for unique ways to customize their big day. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a Tulle Headpiece that can either be worn by the bride, flower girls or wedding party. This is a great way to call out the bride for a bachelorette party as well (especially if you aren’t into the typical bachelorette decor).

Materials:

Tools:

  • Scissors (find a similar leopard pair of scissors here)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Ruler

Total cost: Under $10

Time: 20 minutes

Steps:

  1. Cut 12 pieces of tulle into 8 inch strips.
  2. Cut 6 inch piece of twine and set aside.
  3. Layer pieces of tulle on top of each other, alternating directions.
  4. Fold tulle in half and pinch the bottom together, secure with twine.
  5. Secure tulle to headband with a drop of hot glue and hold in place until dry.

Tips: 

  • I prefer to use tulle with texture like the birdcage type or I mixed regular tulle with a swiss dot style in the video.
  • If you are going to use a comb you will only need 6-8 pieces of tulle depending on the fullness you want.
  • Using a straight edge/square shape tulle will give you a more avant garde look, using rounded edge/circle shape tulle will give you more of a rosette style.
  • Have the bride where it the Bachelorette party and/or bridal shower in order to call out the bride-to-be.
  • Consider making versions for the bridesmaids or flower girls, tulle comes in various colors that will match the wedding color palette.
