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

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 hairstyle ideas for thick hair.

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.

3 Quick and Easy Hairstyle Ideas for Thick Hair (Also great hairstyle ideas for curly hair)

  1. Half Up Top Knot

    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

    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.

    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.

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and Iโ€™m so glad I didnโ€™t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜ณ) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. Iโ€™ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) theyโ€™ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. โ€” @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco โ€” @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. โ€” @jamprco is a local PR company that Iโ€™ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Letโ€™s make some peoples days and share the โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think โ€œthis, this is a moment they are going to remember.โ€ Itโ€™s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, โ€œthis is their childhood, this is what they will remember.โ€
