Are you tired of drab, lack luster hair?  Wishing you knew the secrets of those women with shining, gorgeous hairstyles?  Don't wish anymore, read these hairstyling tips and secrets and you WILL!

Just about every woman knows how to fix simple hairstyles like a bun,Guest Posting a braid or a ponytail.

If you can manage these simple (but usually pretty boring) hairstyles, then with a few twists on these well known hairstyles, you can have a gorgeous hairstyle that will turn heads.


For the first hairstyle I'll teach you, you start with an ordinary ponytail.  I love this hairstyle, which is a really cute ponytail that is extremely easy to make.  Make sure the ponytail you make is a high one.  Loosen the ponytail just slightly so that it hangs a little lower.

Now, using your fingers, part your hair in the center, starting from your crown and ending at the nape of your neck.  You should be sure to divide the hair underneath the ponytail as well as above it. 

Then push your thumbs up from the nape of your neck through the part you've created in your hair.  Hang your head upside down for a second, flipping your ponytail over.  Hook your thumbs around the base of your ponytail and push it upwards to the nape of your neck.

Once a good sized loop of hair is pushed through, grab it with your hand and pull it all the way through.  Now turn your head right side up again and carefully comb your hair together just above the ponytail to make a neat finish.


This next beautiful hairstyle starts the same way as the flip through I just taught you... with a high ponytail.  First you make a part down the middle of your head (like you did for the flip through) only you end AT the ponytail, leaving a good layer of hair under the ponytail untouched.

Then you pull the sections of hair apart above the ponytail creating a "pocket."  Fold the entire ponytail up and gently tuck it down into the pocket, distributing the hair as even as possible.

Push the elastic ponytail band down into the pocket as well, so that it is hidden from view.  If you find this to be hard loosen the ponytail a little more.

Now, just comb your hair carefully over the part you made earlier.  Try using a bobby pin or barrette to pull your hair together just above the pocket.  If your plastic band tends to show, a barrette will also help to hide it.


Yet another of my favorite hairstyles is one that is a variation on the braid, and is rightfully called "the rope."  To make this hairstyle you start with a ponytail that you've divided into 3 even sections.

Twist the right most section of hair to the right, and cross it over both of the other sections.  Repeat this, always twisting the farthest right section to the right and crossing it over the other two sections until your "rope" is the length you desire.

Then secure your hairstyle with a scrunchie or elastic ponytail band once you've finished.

Master these hairstyles and you'll never be stuck wondering what "do" you should wear today.  But better yet, you won't be stuck with the same drab hairdo everyday.
