Pinterest Inspired Hair: Braids and Waves

When I decided to grow out my hair, I told myself that I would have fun with it and try new styles, and fight the urge to throw it in a ponytail every day. I wouldn't call myself a natural when it comes to hair styling (despite my mom being a retired hair stylist), but thanks to Pinterest I figure I can learn.

Recently, I've gotten into a bit of a rut, just reaching for my straightener to style my hair every day. However, when Irresistible Me sent me their Sapphire styling wand to try last month, I vowed at the time I'd get better at adding some waves to my hair. I found this fun look with waves and tiny braids on Pinterest from Maskcara, and I wanted to give it a try. 


I still need some practice getting the waves just right, but I do like how even just curling a few sections adds some texture to my hair. My hair is naturally wavy, but not wavy enough to look like much of a style. 



I had a curling wand that I purchased (cheaply) before Irresistible Me sent me the Sapphire to try. After using the Sapphire over the last month, I can tell you honestly that it is worlds better. It heats up super quickly and my hair holds the curl significantly better using this tool. Plus, because there are eight different wands to choose from, I have lots of options for future Pinterest-inspired hairstyles. 


I like breaking out of my usual routine and trying new things with my hair. I hope that as it grows longer I'll get even more comfortable experimenting with different tools and techniques. 

Have you tried any fun new hairstyles lately?
