"u" is for updates & "v" is for volume

good morning everyone!
thanks for being patient with me for not posting yesterday.
because of that, letters u & v will be sharing.

letter "u" is for UPDATES!
let's talk about the top 5 latest trends in hair for fall 2011:

1. cotton candy colors
an AMAZING tutorial for how to do this can be found here:

2. top knots
these are so easy... and super chic.
i am loving that they are hitting the runway this season!

3. ombre dying
you have likely seen this style all over the place lately.
i love it. it adds so much texture to the hair! 
i have got to do this next time.

4. big chignons
either on the side, or behind, chignons with LOTS of volume.
try adding some extension hair in your chignon to pump up the volume!

5. fabric in hair

"v" is for volume
here are some tips for adding volume to your hair.
first: an awesome product:
this really really helps add volume to the hair.
i love it.
big sexy root pump
and now a teasing tip:
1. lift top of hair and spray @ roots: aerosol usually works best for this.
2. blow dry the roots to secure the hairspray
3. tease with a brush or teasing comb
4. lay down
(at this point you have HUGE hair!)
5. lightly brush over the top layer to tame the poof...
and you have volume!

  1. I love your blog, and your series about hair! How great! It is nice to get a break from crafts every now and again! I admit I have been in a bit of a hair slump..... its hot out and so it goes up.... I need to embrace some volume again! I haven't tried the big sexy root pump...I might just have to pick some of that up! I am an aveda girl---I like the volumizing tonic... I am not sure how amazingly it works but I sure love how it smells lol! Anyways, thank you so much for linking up to my first blog link party ever. I means so much to me and I am enjoying looking around your blog and getting to know you!
