So I threw together some last minute hairstyles tonight! Some are simple and classic while a few are kinda out there! But either way maybe you can use one for your go to hairstyle this week! I am a huge fan of the classic styles (as you will probably see in many style tutorials I like to do). But I have to share this story. I come from three generations of hairstylists. THREE!
My grandma who was a stylist, gave me her hair school Hairstyling guide. It has been such an amazing book to have because it history of classic styles and the history knowing it was used a great deal by someone I love so dearly. The pages, while fragile and withered on the edges remind me of the timeless inspiration held within that small book as well as the talent my grandma had to re-create them each day.
Then my mom was also a hairstylist. Right there I gained more knowledge from her hair talents. She again taught me (and still does) about so many little tips and tricks for styling hair. She has been my go to phone call when trying to figure something out-always. It has been such a blessing to know how to create styles from so many different times. I love sitting down and finding a picture and “breaking it apart” in order to figure out how it it put together. Or at least how I would style it. Styling hair is like my relaxation time and I can’t wait until my girls have long enough hair to do more with. Haha
Anyways, onto the styles. scroll below and choose your favorite!
- “Hat Hair”. This one is my favorite ever since I saw a similar one done by Sharon Blaine. She is my biggest inspiration when it comes to styles “outside of the box”. Holy smokes that woman knows how to create the most extravagant hairstyles as well as a hat made out of hat so big, you wonder how the heck it is staying together! Although they made their three times as big and probably cooler!

1. Part your hair off into a square wide enough to lap over your part.
2. Pull the ponytail over to the side of your part with less hair on it. (opposite your natural part)
3. Depending on how big your ponytail is you can make larger sections. I made 4 because I have zero hair now since the baby.
4. The section closest to your head TEASE and roll into a ball on your head + pin
5. The second second tease again and this time wrap around the previous sections. (you may repeat these steps depending on how thick your hair is!)
6.The third section is now wrapped around the teased portion and flat against it to create a smooth appearance. Spray with a firm spray.
7. The last section it the gently wrapped around the base and pulled out at sections on either side to create the brim of the hat. Bend each side upward and spray with a firm lasting spray. That’s it!
2. Big French Twist
- Make a base in the back and pin.
- 2. I like to pin back my bangs at this point so that they go into the twisted part.
- Starting from the ends, now begin rolling hair inward towards the base and pin on the outer sides.
- Smooth hair back into the twisted portion and spray with s softer hold spray to avoid the crunchy look!
3. 1920’s Hairstyle
- I like to do this into sections because I have such long hair.
- Begin curling on your part either forward or backwards depending how you want it to lay. I like forward because it is a little classier. The on the opposite part make sure to curl the opposite way you did on the other side…make sense? Hah Just switch ways you curled on the next side.it will make sense with it is bruised out.
- Once it has time to set, and sprayed with a firm spray again, let down your hair and brush through with a wide comb.
- After it is brushed you will see the form of the “s” wave and want to follow that with your fingers and pin along the wave.
- Tip: push the hair upward and you can easily find the wave again if you lose it.
- Spray and let sit.
- The back: if you have shorter hair just roll it into a bun. If yours is longer like mine, I like to tie a few knots in a few different sections and roll it up and pin!
4. Hollywood Wave
1.With a larger Curling Iron (or small depending on what size of wave you want) curl your hair along your DEEP part and follow downward in each section.
2. Repeat the similar process of pinning along the wave to create a more indented “S” shape appearance.
3. Gently comb before or after as well depending how loose you want it to look.
4. Spray! I would use a very soft spray since you want a more lived in look!
Annnd A few from last years Halloween! Sorry No tutorials for these but The first one below is just three ponytails along the hair with the front bangs pinned back. Then fishtail braid each section, roll it up and pin!
Hope you enjoyed a few quick styles before the Halloween Festivities! We are getting excited for the kids because they are really getting into dressing up. We need to get on making it to the pumpkin patch before Halloween comes though! Or we are going to miss all the carving fun!
Do you still dress up? What are your costumes this year!?
