Essential for the last 15 cm

Advertorial










And to take care of those locks...



THE LAST 15 CM IS THE MOST IMPORTANT!!

Why?



- Your "oldest" hair are the ends... They are they are repeatedly dyed/permed/rebonded the most number of times as compared to the rest of your hair, making it look and feel more damaged

- Hair with damage tangles, causing hair to be unruly and ugly!

- Because cutting them is not a long term solution if you want to have long hair!

- Damaged ends will be the one reason you will never dare to go blonde - which everyone should at least once! ;)

- And last but not least, a healthy last 15 cm of your hair will allow you to experiment with MANY FUN HAIRSTYLES!



And if you are wondering why my last 15cm is so awesome despite bleaching it so often, it is because I use Essential's products - Damage care that takes care of hair from root to tip!

And just to demonstrate how important the last 15 cm is, today I'm gonna create 3 different hair styles that are easy and fun to do!!


1) The Double Braid Hair Band

Recommended for girls with longer hair...


First take out some hair as shown... Now tie them into braids for as long as possible!

Very simple... Just flip both braids over your head and pin into place with bobby pins!


And tadah! Here's the end result! Perfect for a movie night (I'm thinking Grecian-styled dress) or even a picnic (checks and a basket- cute)!

As you can kinda see, my hair is not nearly long enough to have the braid tucked all the way at the bottom, so I just had to blend the ends into the side of my head and hope no one notices... If the ends are damaged it will be super obvious and ugly!


2) The Classy Ponytail


Every girl ties a ponytail from time to time but there are ways to make your ponytail stand out!

This style was actually done for my ROM and I LOVED IT! I felt I had perfect hair that day! :D And I even kinda designed it myself. *blush* Not that it's original per se lah but I told my hairstylist exactly what I wanted and it was awesome.

First tie a high ponytail.


Putting out a strand from the bottom, loop it over and over your hair tie, finally pinning it at the bottom again with bobby pins!



Like this!

Now using a curling iron, curl ONLY THE ENDS of your hair!!


Adjust the curl such that they all curl into each other in one big neat curl, and secure with hair spray!

I like how the hair now looks so clean and chic! :)


Front view

Needless to say, damaged ends will not make this look work.
If your hair ends are all dry they shouldn't even be subjected to a
curling tong!



3) Fish tail braids with a twist


I've shown how to do fish tail braids on Guide to Life before but they are so cute I thought I'd share how to do it on a blog post instead. And this time, I added a pink clip-on hair extension to one of the braids!


Separating hair into two. You don't have to do that if you only want one braid.

Further separate hair into another two bunches - Let's call them A and B.

From the back of A, take some hair and loop around A to put at the front of B...



Like this...



From the front it should look like that!

Now from the back of B take some hair to loop around B to join A.



And it looks like that!

Fairly simple... Sorry if I sound confusing... If you don't get it you can watch youtube tutorial videos. :)



AND DONE!!! I love the beach look :D



Muah!



Working the style with healthy hair ends ;)

Hair extensions are often very shiny and healthy so if your own ends don't match up it'd look super odd!


Hope you like the styling tips!!!
