Hair series: My day 1 hair

I always get comments about how readers appreciate the fact that I change up my hairstyles on a daily basis. It becomes very apparent especially when I share weekly roundup photos. I've been wanting to put together tutorial videos so you all can see how quick and easy it is for me to style my hair, and I'm happy to say that I've *finally* took the plunge to start this hair series. Every Tuesday for the next 5 weeks, I will be sharing hair videos of my most frequently worn hairstyles. Changing up my hair isn't just for the purposes of completing an outfit, it's mainly my way of pushing my hair to last up to 5 days between washings. Today, I shall start with day 1!

Day 1 hair: The simple side pin
Products used--- Hairspray: TRESemme | Thermal shield spray: Not Your Mother's | Teasing Brush (mine came from my salon, this is similar) | Bobby pins: Goody

My long, side-swept bangs are really fussy on day one. They always want to fall forward in my face and never stay in place. I've found that pinning them to the side on day one helps them stay to the side on their own for days two through five. Also, for the sake of salvaging the health of my hair, I try and only use one heat tool on my hair a day. Since day one hair is freshly washed and blown dry, I just let it do it's thing without using a flat iron or curling iron - the hair dryer is enough heat on my mane for the day.

All that being said, here is a quick video tutorial so you can see this easy style in more detail. The rest of the series will continue as follows:

Day 2 hair: All down, straightened with a flat iron

Day 3 hair: Half up, half down
Day 4 hair: All down with slept-on-braided waves and curls
Day 5 hair: An easy top knot

Hope you will continue to follow along over the next few weeks!

  1. love the new series and happy you are doing it because your hair is glorious and always well done.


  2. Ah, so much hair envy! It really is fun to see all the different styles you do and how you use them to enhance your outfit (even if that's not the primary intention!). It also makes me relieved most of my photos are headless because my hair is the same every day and I'm sure people would get sick of it!

  3. So, I'm totally getting a teasing brush tomorrow! I didn't even know they existed... and I've never been successful teasing with a comb. Thanks for the help! I also appreciate that your hair products don't cost a ton!

  4. Ive been looking for the same teasing brush! thanks! First time hearing your voice! very cool to match your voice to your pictures!

  5. I need to get that teasing brush! I like the Youtube series, puts the person behind the blog a little bit closer. Hope to see you at my Wednesday Inspirations Linkup.

  6. Fun hair tutorial! I use the one-pin hair style, but I haven't used a teasing brush! I need to find one!

  7. I'm definitely looking forward to the hair series! I actually bought dry shampoo based on one of your older blog post. Looking forward to see what other hair stuff to try.

  8. I'm excited to follow along! I am always looking for things to do with my hair (other than the messy bun or pony tail that I always do).
