3 Simple Long Hair Style Ideas
Comments Off on 3 Quick and Easy Long Hair Style Ideas

I feel like my hair is 90% of the time styled one of these three ways, the other 10% would be just a messy ol’ top knot that nobody wants to see. Over the past couple years I have been working on moving away from having a top knot every. single. day. It takes more time in the mornings, but I always feel so much better about myself when I take the time to do a little styling. If you follow me on Instagram then you are most likely familiar with these three quick and easy long hair style ideas already.

Before we begin I have to give a little (HUUUGEE) shout out to my sister, Mauve Hair Design. I would most likely have no idea of what to do with my hair if it wasn’t for her. Over the years I have learnt so much from watching her do her own hair and styling mine.

Three quick and easy long hair style ideas

3 Quick and Easy Long Hair Style Ideas

  1. Half Up Top Knot

    3 Quick and Easy Love Hair Style Ideas

    When I cut my hair last year to just below my shoulders I really started to love this style. Before that I always thought that my hair was too long and it looked funny. As my hair has grown back out I still LOVEEEE this style and rock it weekly.

    * Hair Tip: Start to section your hair from the top of your ears and then angle slightly upward. I like to do this to include my medium length side burns (thanks children) but allow for more hair to be down in the back for thickness.

  2. Fish Tail Side Braid

    3 Simple Long Hair Style Ideas

    The thought of doing a fish tail braid used to scare me. I always thought it was wayyyy to hard to do any never even tried… classic. Guess what, it really isn’t that hard at all. Check out a You Tube tutorial or this post for a “how to” fish tail and you will know exactly what I mean. The other day I even showed a friend how to do it while at coffee together and that afternoon she was rocking them.

    If you start with already curled hair, it allows you to make little errors and have them a lot less noticable too, just remember to loosen it up after you complete the braid by massaging your fingers along the braid and pulling little pieces looser.

  3. Hair Up Braid

    3 Simple Long Hair Style Ideas

    This still looks great with your long hair curled or not. I find with long hair (and long bangs) it is nice to get some of that hair out of your face. This is a super quick way to do it, and is a great go to if you leave the house with your hair down and then on the go you decide you want to have some of it tied back. I used to think this was like a grade 5 style but since I recently started rocking it again I often get so many compliments on the style. So even if it brings you back to elementary school days, I promise it’s still cool.

  • Hello! I wanted to welcome all the new faces around here as it’s been a while since I did any sort of introduction. So here is a little about how I started and a goal of mine, please do share a little about you, and a goal too!⠀
•⠀
I started this blog over four years ago while on mat leave with Sophie. I’d never met anyone who blogger, didn’t know a thing about building a website but had a passion for social media and a need for connection.⠀
•⠀
Six months later I went to school for graphic design and graduated from BCIT and Emily Carr in Vancouver a year later. It was a crazy year doing school and keeping this blog afloat — but I’m so glad I did it!⠀
•⠀
This space has grown into such a beautiful thing for me. A place to feel inspired, creative, encouraged and connected to so many others in the same and different stages of life.⠀
•⠀
It’s been on my heart (for over a year now) to create a physical place for connection, not just this profile on Instagram. I have no idea what it looks like yet but the passion is growing stronger as I feel I might start having more time to develop on this idea. I think I need to start taking some of my own advice, the same line I say to those wanting to start a blog but don’t know how. Just start, you’ll figure it out as you go.⠀

  • Has anyone else started to get that back to school panic yet? Like how the heck is it two weeks away?? I was talking to a friend yesterday about both our kids going into kinds this year and how strange of a stage it is. We’ve spent 5 years raising these little humans of ours and then off they go to spend most of their day learning. I’m super excited for Sophie because I know she’s going to love it, but that weird mom panic is starting to set in 😅 also! Ezra is going into Grade 4 😶 when did that happen?! He thinks he is going into grad 5 because he was in a 3/4 split last year and already knows everything that Grade 4’s would learn 🤷🏼‍♀️ he’s got a good argument but I keep telling him I’m pretty sure he’s going into grade 4 still, poor guy.

On a whole other note... Evelyn has started to master this whole potty training thing and I bought he some underwear cause we are fully committing (minus bedtimes) things really do happen all at once when it comes to parenting hey.. we’ve got all the feels happening today 😅😢😳😍😊🤔 ps: @peoplefootwear my kids want to thank you for keeping their feet stylish and comfortable this summer 😘 #gifted #peoplefootwear
