  • 3 Easy Hairstyles that Can Be Worn Anywhere

    The Hair Dame

    Hairstyles are always hard to come up with in the moment needed, Dames. I also tend to search for something cute every time I’m trying to get ready for the day. However, having a few in your arsenal is great so you don’t have to get ready — you stay ready!  It’s why I can literally be done getting ready to go out (shower, makeup and all) in 15 minutes. Why? Let’s be honest, our hair takes the longest. I’ve mastered the shortcut and sharing with you. Here’s a few of my go-to’s and how to do them yourselves!

    IMG_2775

    Middle part French braids with a high bun. I love this hairstyle for dirty hair days. It’s great with a Canadian suit (all denim) or a cocktail dress.

    IMG_2776

    Step 1: Part your hair in the middle and french braid both sides of the part stopping just behind your hear and tie it off with a small rubber band.

    Step 2: Using a bristle brush, brush your hair up to a high ponytail meeting the two braids. Using a bristle brush will ensure a smooth upstyle and this is what makes this style look great for dressed up occasions.

    Step 3: Back comb the ponytail a bit and wrap it around the rubber band to create a bun.

    Step 4: You can create a little texture in the braid by pulling it apart a bit to loosen it. Comb out some hair around your hairline for softness.

    Step 1: Separate the top section of your hair and pin it aside. French-braid the side of your hair reaching back past your ear and gather the rest of your hair to meet in a ponytail.

    Step 2: Separate an inch of hair out of the top section and back-comb it. This will be used as a base. Take your Secret Extensions by The Hair Dame and fold the piece into thirds. Bobby pin this hair piece into the base you created.

    Step 3: Drop the rest of the top over the pinned hair piece and connect it with the ponytail with a small black rubber band. Wrap a pice of your hair around the ponytail. The extensions have given your ponytail a new life!

    Half up volume hair style with Secret Extensions

    This hairstyle is kind of a no-brainer and super simple. I put in my hair extensions, tease the underneath section of my crown. Then, I clip in my Secret Volume hair piece and tease those. I drop the hair and gather it in middle back. At weddings, I tend to be the last to get ready because I’m always doing the hair and makeup, and this always works for me.

    Well, Dames, I hope you like my three go-to’s. Let me know how you do with them and if you have any questions leave them below or ask on IG @thehairdame.

  • How To Create a Dramatic Fishtail Braid

    Processed with MOLDIV

    Hi, Dames! Ever wondered how those girls on Instagram get such a big fishtail braid? Well, the answer is hair extensions! Even if you have long hair or thick hair, you can still use fun hair pieces to create a dramatic fishtail braid with accentuated color. Here’s a way for you to do it with Secret Extensions by The Hair Dame: I used two hair pieces in dark golden blonde and lightest golden blonde. It gave me a really cool ombre colored braid, and believe it or not, the fishtail braid is the easiest braid to do because it consists of only two strands.

    Check out the video below so you can follow along.

     

     

    Put on the hair extensions like a headband, then:
    1. Remove hair from underneath around your hairline.
    2. Remove hair around hairline from under the band.
    3. Brush out the top hair to remove from under the band.

    Gather all your hair to one side and fasten with a clear rubber band to begin fishtail braid, then:
    1. Split hair into two sections.
    2. Take thin pieces from the end and cross over the other section. Repeat on other side.
    3. Continue this motion going all the way down to create the braid. The thinner the piece you cross, the scalier the braid will look.
    4. Secure braid with clear rubber band, and pull the crown a bit for extra volume. Spray to finish.

  • How to Create a Crown Braid with Hair Extensions

    Hey, Dames!

    Are you one of those dames that can braid on other people but can’t braid your own hair to save your life? Well, we have a really cool way to braid your extension halo piece and incorporate it into a style as a crown braid. Check out the video below and give it a shot!  Tag me in your final look @TheHairDame.

    Step 1: Braid the Secret Extension hair piece. You can use your HairClutch as a styling assistant, it holds the hair into place so your best friend doesn’t have to.

    Step 2: Gather your hair into a low bun and pin into place. Having little hairs stick out is ok, it adds texture.

    Step 3) Put on the braided hair piece like a headband and fold the braid over the seam of the hair piece. Pin it into place.

    Step 4) Remove some hairs around your face to soften the look. Hairspray to finish.
