Pretty Big Mohawk Hair Tutorial.

1 // Part the crown of your hair (all the way around). Pin it up on top of your head to get it out of the way.

2 // Make a bun with the top portion of the remaining hair.  (If your hair is thin consider backcombing/teasing first)

3 // Make a bun with the bottom portion of the remaining hair.  (if your hair is thin consider backcombing/teasing first) Pull to loosen the 2 buns. I like a slightly messy look.

4 // Take down the crown of your hair.

5 // Back comb/tease the crown of your hair.  Select a small amount of hair to stay out near the front/side of your face.

6 // Roll the hair down to your scalp. Adjust the shape of the twist if you need to.

7 // Secure the twist with a few pins on the side.

8 // Take the last small piece of hair and twist it. 

9 // Continue twisting the small piece of hair into a coil bun on the side of your head. Then secure with pins. This coil bun can be a focal point near your face. You just feel it out. and figure out what shape looks cute by your face. 

10 // Spray with hair spray. I like the Hard Head hair spray by Bed Head.

*NOTE* If you have thin hair then back comb /tease the under side of your hair for every step. Then smooth the top if necessary. (photos by Janelle Marina)

The Double Ponytail Hair Trick.

I LOOOOOVE that the classic ponytail is back making a style statement this season! Sometimes I am a little shy when it comes to this kind of stuff but today I thought I would try another hair tutorial and show you a very simple trick to create a long full looking ponytail. I call it the double ponytail. This is a trick that I learned in high school and from time to time I like to wear it when I want something a little different. This style is a little more elegant than just the regular ponytail. So, here it goes. P.S. In number 2 I totally look mad. haha But it was the best action shot of that step.

1 // Start with your hair blow-dried and curled. This is actually a few days after I washed it. But freshly washed will work great and probably look better!
2 // Pull the lower half of your hair into a mid range ponytail.
3 // Comb and side-sweep the top half of your hair. Give it a little back combing for some volume if you need it.
4 // Secure the top half of your hair into a ponytail directly on top of the lower one.
5 // Drop the top ponytail. Loosen a few places and tuck away any strays to make sure it looks nice!! Make sure to view the ponytail from both sides and adjust to make sure that the lower ponytail is not showing. You may want to experiment and try a few different ponytail heights to find a combination that works well with your head shape. FIN!!!

Have you ever tried this look before? Are you the ponytail type? Let me know if this is a type of post that you enjoy or not! And if you have done any hair tutorials, I want to see!! Post up and send me a link.
