A few weeks back I posted a picture of this hairstyle on instagram. I love asking you guys which hairstyles you’d like to see tutorials for and it was a resounding yes for this one. This is such a bold hairstyle but I think it would look so cool and nearly any event, a concert, night out with friends, or even to a school dance! Let me know what you think and if there are any other tutorials you’d love to see! Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy
Step 1 / Begin by dividing out a section of hair along the top of the head by creating two part lines from the forehead back and down towards the nape of the neck.
Step 2 / Clip down the bottom hair.
Step 3 / Take a section of hair near the hairline, twist it together and pin it in place with a bobby pin.
Step 4 / Now take a section from the right side cross it over to the left side, wrap the hair under and pin it in place with a bobby pin.
Step 5 / Then pick up a section from the left side, cross it over to the right, wrapping the hair under and securing it in place with a bobby pin.
Step 6 / Continue picking up sections from one side and crossing them over to the opposite side, wrapping them under and pinning them in place behind the previous section until reaching about an inch or two from the nape of the neck.
Step 7 / Now let down the hair on the sides of the head and combine it all together at the base of the mohawk.
Step 8 / Wrap a clear elastic band half way over the section and then twist the hair and the elastic together before wrapping the elastic band once more over the hair to form the bun.
Step 9 / Take the ends left sticking out and loop them back towards the elastic, tucking them in.
Step 10 / Pin down the edges of the bun so it’s flush with the head.
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!

Waterfall Braid Wrapped Flower Instructions:
Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the right side.
Step 2 / Then divide out any hair to frame the face and clip this out of the way.
Step 3 / Pick up a section on the heavy side of the part for the braid and divide it into three smaller sections.
Step 4 / Cross the right strand over the middle strand and then cross the left strand over the middle.
Step 5 / Then cross the right strand over the middle and pick up a new section crossing it over and into the middle strand.
Step 6 / Drop down the left strand, pick up a new section from underneath it and cross it over and into the middle strand.
Step 7 / Then divide the left strand in half and cross half over and into the braid as well.
Step 8 / Repeat those steps continuing the braid until it reaches around the back of the head and hair has been brought in from the right side of the head.
Step 9 / Now stop adding new sections into the braid and just continue the braid down to the ends before sliding a bobby pin over the bottom.
Step 10 / Go back over the braid and gently pull on the edges of the braid but only on the right side. This will make the petals of the flower easier to see.
Step 11 / Then tie the bottom of the braid with a clear elastic band.
Step 12 / Roll the braid upwards onto itself, creating a spiral and place it where the waterfall braid ends.
Step 13 / Tuck the ends of the braid into the center of the flower.
Step 14 / Weave bobby pins through the flower starting under the outer edges until it feels secured in place.
Step 15 / Gently pull on the outer edges of the flower to help accentuate the petals of the flower.
Step 16 / Set everything in place with a medium-hold hairspray.
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

Hair sectioning clips
5 Dutch Braids High Bun Instructions:
Step 1 / Start by dividing out a small section of hair along the top of the head by creating two part lines and clipping down the bottom hair.
Step 2 / With this top section of hair create a dutch braid by crossing the side strands under the middle strand while bringing new sections into the braid until the braid reaches the crown.
Step 3 / Continue the braid a little further down and then slide a bobby pin over the bottom so it doesn’t unravel.
Step 4 / Now divide out a similar sized section of hair on the right side of the head and repeat those same steps creating a second dutch braid.
Step 5 / Then divide out a third section on the left side of the head and create a third braid.
Step 6 / Now create two more dutch braid with the two remaining sections of hair above both the left and right ears.
Step 7 / Once all five braids are done, all of the hair together at the crown and wrap it once with a hair band.
Step 8 / Then remove the bobby pins from the ends of the braids and unravel them.
Step 9 / Spread the hair around the hair band before wrapping the hair band twice more over the hair to form the base of the bun.
Step 10 / Loop the ends back towards the hair band and tuck them in.
Step 11 / Now pull on the edges of the bun to tighten it against the head and make it a little fuller.
Step 12 / Then pin down any edges of the bun where the hair band shows through.
I love throwing my hair into a ponytail during the hot, summer heat.
Tossing in two dutch braids is a super, simple way to make your everyday pony a little extra cute. This style works best on second or third day hair when it’s a little too dirty to wear down but not dirty enough to commit to a messy bun.
Try it with wet hair after hopping out of the pool or dress it up for a fun night out with friends! Thanks so much for reading! Have a great weekend – xo, Missy

Today’s tutorial was inspired by the Lace Braid Wrapped Bun. I love the creativity behind that style but wanted to create a similar tutorial that was done in a more basic way. The method behind this look feels more “classic” and I love that the bun isn’t the usual messy bun that I love to do. I think it gives this style a completely different feel and I hope the technique is fun and new for you to learn.
I’m currently making a list of new tutorials to film over the next few weeks so if there is anything that you’d love to see in an upcoming tutorial, be sure to let me know in the comments below! xo, Missy
Double Braid Wrapped Roll Bun Supplies:
Clear elastic band
Double Braid Wrapped Roll Bun Instructions:
Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair where you normally part it. I’ve placed mine on the right side.
Step 2 / Divide off a section of hair at the crown and pin down the right side before wrapping the left side over the top and pinning it down with more bobby pins.
Step 3 / Next separate out the back section of hair by creating part lines behind both ears and bringing the side hair forwards, over the shoulders.
Step 4 / Take the back section and tie the hair together, near the bottom, with a clear elastic band.
Step 5 / Roll this section upwards towards the head and pin it in place with bobby pins.
Step 6 / Now take the hair on the right side and divide it into two sections, a top and bottom.
Step 7 / Wrap the bottom section over the top of the bun and pin it in place with bobby pins.
Step 8 / Then do the same thing with the hair on the left side, taking the bottom section, wrapping it over the bun and pinning it underneath with bobby pins.
Step 9 / With the hair on the right side, begin a french braid and then switch to a lace braid so you’re only adding in hair from along the hairline.
Step 10 / Once all of the hair is brought into the braid, continue braiding the section to the bottom.
Step 11 / Now pull on the edges of the braid to make it fuller.
Step 12 / Lay it over the top of the bun and pin it in place with bobby pins, tucking the ends into the bun.
Step 13 / Repeat the same steps with the hair on the left side creating a second lace braid.
Step 14 / Stretch out the braid by pulling on the edges.
Step 15 / Lay the braid over the bun and secure it underneath with bobby pins.
Step 16 / Set everything in place with hairspray and smooth down flyaways.
