Beauty Tips and Tricks: Hair (or the three B's)

Hair is one of a woman's many assets and sometimes lady's get stuck in a rut. Well today its time to shake up the monotony of hair with some old stand-bys. Like an LBD (little black dress) or a big structured bag there are staples in a girl's hair as well as her clothes and here are three that every girl should utilize. I like to call them the three B's (braids, buns, and bobby pins).

Braids: The LBD of hair. Nothing says chic, put together, and fun like a good french braid. And the best thing it is a good sub for a hat or scarf on those bad hair days.

Side Braid: The trick is the messier the better. The polished version looks  more like a little school girl rather than chic fashionista that you are.

Braided Bun: It can be sleek and on the top on your head or messy and to the side but trust me it always looks good.

A Bun: Like the braid, twists (or buns or chignons), are an excellent bad hair day go to. It can be an easy messy bun or a sleek chignon. It all depends on your mood and your outfit but girl you will always look good.

The Messy Bun: Easy and cute. Need I say more?

The Chignon: A classic stand-by.

The Bobby Pin: The best invention...ever (well in beauty any way). It can help create the perfect twist or just liven up your hair when you want to wear it down.
