Two is always better than one, right?! One of my favorite things to do is recreate old tutorials with double braids. I’ve done it with several hairstyles already and have been so excited to share this one with you. I tried it out a few months ago and posted the picture on instagram. Of course, many of you asked for a tutorial so I hope you enjoy it and give it a try! Thanks so much for watching! xo, Missy

Step 9 / Repeat those steps continuing the lace braid, only adding in hair on the left side of the braid until it reaches the left temple.

Step 11 / Let down the hair that was clipped back and divide out a second section for the second braid.
Step 12 / Repeat the same steps creating a second lace braid, bringing in hair to the left side of the braid and then tying off the bottom with another elastic band.
Step 13 / Once both braids are done, bring the rest of the hair up into a high ponytail, adding the braids in last and tie it all together with a hair band.
Step 14 / Remove the elastic bands from the ends of the braids and brush through them.
Step 15 / Take small sections of the ponytail and create loops, pinning them in place with bobby pins around the hair band.
Step 16 / Continue creating loops, pinning down the ends wherever there are gaps in the bun and place a few on top of the bun to create dimension. Tip: As you’re pinning the sections, make sure to check in the mirror so the bun stays symmetrical.
Step 17 / Go back over the sections of the bun and smooth down any flyaways with hairspray.
If you’ve been looking for the perfect summer pony, this is it! Hair scarves are all the rage this season and this style looks even more trendy with one wrapped around the ponytail. I am beyond obsessed with the puffiness of this braid and the best part is that it only takes a few minutes to do! If you’re having a hard time keeping the style in all day, try sliding a few bobby pins along the braid to help hold it in place. Let me know what you think. Thanks so much for reading! xo Missy

Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle I recently wore and posted on Instagram. Many of you asked for a tutorial so I thought it’d be fun to share that today. I am so in love with this hairstyle and love how casual it looks from the front. My favorite hairstyles are ones that don’t look too fussy from the front but then wow! when you see it from the back. Wear it to work during the week or for a special event coming up, there’s no doubt you’ll get plenty of compliments!
I recently attended a hair class taught by Hair and Makeup by Steph and learned so many new techniques! She’s someone I’ve been following for a long time and her work is always so beautiful. This was the second class I’ve taken from her, the first way back in 2014, and it was so fun to watch and see how she creates some of her stunning hairstyles. I always feel so inspired after learning new hair methods so hopefully I can put together some tutorials that feature a little bit of her influence. If you ever get the chance to attend one of her classes I highly recommend it!

The other day, someone told me I looked like Cara Delevigne from the movie Valerian.
I found a picture of her wearing a hairstyle similar to this one and thought it was such a fun, summer hairstyle. It’s a great heatless style and would even work on wet hair too. Wear it to the beach or the pool to keep your hair off your neck and out of the way! Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy
