Want to learn an easy day to night hair style? So did I so I asked my stylist for some help. I’m kind of in love with my hair stylist, Tera Rae Stephens. Look how darn cute she is! I’ve been going to her for a few years now and she’s The One. I’m always obsessed with the color she does for me and she cuts me so that I can have style but not spend a lot of time on it. We’ve established that I’m really lazy, right? Tera has the best style, has a darling family and, oh yeah, she blogs! It is one of my favorites. She shares style posts and also beauty tips and sometimes even recipes! It is a must read! Since my focus is on prepping for Alt Summit right now, I asked her to share an easy day to night hair style. After each day of the conference there is a night of parties with not a whole lot of prep time. She happily agreed. Because she’s cool like that.
I much prefer to be taking the pictures instead of being in them. Even more so for these since my entire family is battling ridiculous head colds with so much congestion it makes your eyes all puffy and like you haven’t slept in weeks. And don’t even get me started about my red nose.
I have makeup on. Seriously. Um, could my color be any more perfectly suited for me?! I freaking love it.
For Tera’s easy day to night hair style: Start with dry hair and create a deep side part.
Start a french braid on the side of your head, heading towards the back.
Continue the braid to just behind your ear and then stop picking up hair and finish the bread. Use a small, clear elastic to secure it.
Bring the braid around the back of your head. Lift up your hair and secure the end of the braid.
Smooth the hair over the pinned end of the braid. Depending on your personal style you can leave it like this or pull some of the hair up a bit to create a poof at the crown. Gorgeous!
Oops, we somehow didn’t manage to get a straight on shot of the finished look. But it is super cute. The deep part gives you a little lift at the roots, and the tight braid gives you an edgy, sort of rockery look. This is super easy and would take just minutes to do. You can see a finished picture of the style on her blog here. She also shared this day to night look on Fox 5 San Diego during the holidays. See the video here. I told you she’s legit!
Thanks, Tera, for helping me get party ready!
