There’s nothing worse than waking up late to discover there isn’t enough time to wash your hair before work or school. When a messy bun or ponytail simply won’t cut it, this hairstyle will be your new favorite for saving the day. With a dash of dry shampoo and the right styling products, you can have your hair perfectly styled for whatever the day holds and without anyone knowing you’re overdue for a hair wash.


Twisted Buns Updo Supplies:

  • L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo
  • TRESeme Beauty-Full Volume Flexible Finish Spray
  • Nexxus Maxximum Finishing Mist
  • Rattail Comb
  • 9-10 Bobby pins

Step 1 / Begin by spraying the roots with the L’Oreal dry shampoo. This helps refresh the hair and soak up any extra oil when your hair is due to be washed. Even if the hair is clean it’s perfect for adding a bit of texture and grip to the hair. 

Step 2 / Next, pick up sections of hair at the crown and backcomb the hair, brushing the hair near the root downwards, to add a bit of extra volume and volume. Then spray the roots underneath with a volume spray to set the backcombing so it doesn’t fall flat throughout the day.

Step 3 / Pick up a section of hair at the crown and twist it together at the back of the head. Then twist the hair together and wrap it clock-wise into a bun pinning the twist as you go. 

Step 4 / Continue wrapping and pinning the section until the hair forms a bun. Then pick up a new section on the right side and combine it with the ends from the bun.

Step 5 / Wrap this second section into another bun under the first, slightly towards the left, and pin it against the head. Then combine the remaining hair together and twist it all together. 

Step 6 / Wrap the twist into a third bun, under the previous two and pin it with several more bobby pins. Set the style with hairspray and smooth down any flyaways.

Happy Monday! The weather here in Arizona has been absolutely perfect lately. This sheer sweater has been such a great transitional piece with the warmer weather. Not to mention I am completely obsessed with the color. I have been filling my closet with soft pastel shades for the upcoming Spring season. It’s easily one of my favorite seasons to dress for. Sadly, this sweater is already sold out but I found a similar one and there are so many other cute sweaters to choose from too. Pair any cute top with white denim and it’s one of the easiest ways to make your outfit more suitable to Spring!

Today’s tutorial is a little bit different. I’ve been really wanting to step outside the box recently and try hairstyles that weren’t your typical everyday styles. This tutorial was inspired by a photo I saw recently on an instagram account, @entwinedbypippa. I love how complicated it looks but if you love waterfall braids then you can easily learn this look. Be sure to let me know if you do decide to recreate this look! I have no doubt you’ll get lots of compliments if you ever wear this style! xo, Missy

  • Step 1 / Begin by dividing off a section of hair along the center of the head. Create a part on the right side, continuing it down the back of the head and then tie off the bottom hair.
  • Step 2 / Then create a second part on the left side, tying off the hair at the bottom.
  • Step 3 / Next pick up a small slice of hair from this middle section and split it into three pieces for the braid.
  • Step 4 / Begin a french braid by crossing the right strand over the middle and then the left strand.
  • Step 5 / Cross the right strand over the middle and bring in a new section of hair.
  • Step 6 / Then cross the left strand over the middle and bring in a new section.
  • Step 7 / Now begin creating a waterfall braid so drop down the right strand and pick up a new section of hair behind it, crossing it over the middle in its place.
  • Step 8 / Then drop down the left strand, and bring a new section of hair over the middle in its place.
  • Step 9 / Continue the waterfall braid along this top middle section of hair back to the crown. Then continue the braid down the back of the head.
  • Step 10 / When the braid reaches the nape of the neck, tie it off with a clear elastic band.
  • Step 11 / Let down the hair on the right side and tie it into a bun.
  • Step 12 / To create the bun, first combine the hair together at the nape of the neck. Wrap an elastic band part way over the hair to create a little loop.
  • Step 13 / Then twist the hair band once and wrap the ends of the hair around the right side and over the top of the loop. Then wrap the elastic band over the hair to create a second little loop.
  • Step 14 / With the ends left sticking out, loop them back towards the elastic band and tuck them in.
  • Step 15 / Pull on the edges to make the bun a little bigger.
  • Step 16 / Now take the hair on the left side and repeat the same steps creating a second bun at the nape of my neck.
  • Step 17 / Set the style with hairspray.

We’re home from our trip and it’s so weird being back. This morning I was getting breakfast together and it felt like we’d never left. I love going somewhere new though because routines can feel so stale after a while and a quick trip always helps me feel refreshed. Part way through the drive I turned to AJ and said I was having so much fun. He thinks it’s so strange but I really love road trips. Driving in the car has always been so fun to me.

Black has always held a special place in my heart. It’s so sleek and never goes out of style. Mixing textures and pattern is a great way to keep an all black outfit from feeling flat. I love this lace top because it looks so classy but wears like a casual top. I paired this look with neutral accessories but I think keeping it all black would’ve been so chic too. What do you think? Would you style it with a neutral heel and bag, keep it all black, or add a pop of color?  xo, M
