Today’s tutorial is this pretty half up hairstyle inspired by @svglamour on instagram. I love looking through pictures of hairstyles and always feel so inspired by the different hairstylists I follow on instagram and pinterest. It’s so amazing to see everyone’s unique styles and perspectives on hair. It has always been so fun for me to share my passion for hair and I love seeing it from so many other people as well.

On another note, Halloween is coming up soon and I’m planning a few tutorials. Let me know in the comments below if there’s a specific Halloween tutorial you’d love to see! Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy

For Labor Day weekend, we headed down to St. George to visit my brother and his cute family. We spent the weekend eating at Waffle Love, cliff jumping at Sand Hollow, and learning how to play poker. I also decided to share a few clips of my recent hair appointment since I often get asked about my hair color.

I hope you enjoy seeing these highlights from our trip! Let me know if you’d love to see more vlogs in the future by commenting down below!

Thanks so much for watching! xo, Missy

Truth: It’s 1:30 AM and I’m rushing to put this post together. I put it off all week and now I’m paying the price so I’ll keep this short. This is one of my favorite hairstyles for Summer.

Of course, even though it’s now Fall, I’ll still wear this look all year round. I’ve always loved this time of year, Autumn. With the close of another Summer, it always feels like I’m leaving a small piece of myself behind. There’s something so solemn about the end of Summer; as if life starts new again with the Fall, a time to reinvent yourself and begin again. Maybe it’s just the nostalgia.

I’ve never done tutorials for some of the more “basic” styles so when someone requested a tutorial for this look I was more than happy to create one. I hope you love it, like always, thanks so much for reading. xo, Miss

Today’s tutorial was inspired by a post I saw on the account @braidsbylia on instagram. I am often asked where I find inspiration for tutorials and instagram and pinterest are my first choices for finding unique and fun hairstyles.

I love the double fishtail french braids in this hairstyle. I think it adds a little something extra to the style.
