I really like curls. But I don’t have them, my hair isn’t curly or straight, it’s a bit between curly and straight. So recently I bought myself a curling iron. I wanted to share this, because I have to say it works really good. The curling iron I bought is the Best Beauty Curling AT570A, this is a conical curler.

Before you start, you have to make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then you take a small piece of hair and twist it around the curling iron. I only twist the lower half of the hair around it. You don’t have to keep it around the curler for that long, only a few seconds. If you have a thicker pick, you have to hold it a little bit longer around the curler. If you did it all the way around your hair, it will look like this.

You can leave your curls like this, or you can brush them out. Finally, you can use some hairspray which helps the curls last a bit longer.
It isn't that hard to do, and I hope you will give it a try after reading this:)

I am always searching for a hair bow, and I have to say there are quite a lot, but I can never find the right one. So I thought I can probably make them myself,  than I have the freedom to make it in every color I want, and It’s way cheaper than buying them. So I learned how to make my own hair bow. I really like the bows I already made, and actually I can’t stop making them. So today I’m going to learn you how to make your own bows as well.

First: what you need!
1. Your choice of fabric, today I used lace, but you can use every kind of fabric you like.
2. A pair of Scissors
3. A Glue gun with glue sticks
4. Any type of hair-clips you prefer

you choose your fabric, and lay it inside out and fold it one time, because this fabric is kind of thin I’m folding it over one more time. Then I cut off all the fabric you don’t need. Now I cut some of the length, because I don’t want my bow to be super long.

Now I fold the fabric so the two opposite ends are touching, and I glue them together  

What I am going to do next is pinch the middle of the fabric, so I create a bow shape.
Now that I have the bow shape I take the glue and glue the little creases that I created together.



 Now I take some more fabric, I fold it a few times and again cutting away some excess. And then I glue it together so I create one strip. When the strip is a bit too long cut off the excess so it fit around the bow. Now I wrap it around the centre of the bow and glue the opposite ends together.
And there is your bow!



Now I take a hair-clip, and apply a little bit of glue on the back side of the bow and hold the hair-clip against it for a few seconds. Then I also glue the very ends of the clip against the bow, because it makes a nice shape.

And that’s how you make these cute hair bows!
