Tutorial Tuesday – Quick Updo



Have an event or holiday party coming up? Do you already have the perfect outfit? Is your hairstyle still up in the air?

Then try this quick updo that looks fun and elegant at the same time! In just a few easy steps you’ll be ready to strut your stuff with a hairstyle that looks like it took hours to perfect.

  • Pin back your bangs, or the front section of your hair and add a little volume for some oomph.
  • Take a section from each side of your hairline and bring together into a twist at the back of your head.
  • Twist the section around your finger and pin into a small bun. Pin and hold your  hair in place with bobby pins.
  • Repeat steps 2 & 3 until all your hair is twisted and pinned into a line down the back of your head.
  • Shown are five small buns but you can adjust this to suit your hair thickness and length.


Tutorial Tuesday – Use a Curling Wand

The use of curling wands can be tricky. Depending where you hold it, vertical or horizontal position or how tightly you wrap your hair around the barrel and so on can change the look and feel of your curls at the end. To end this battle with yourself, follow our tutorial to get easy curls perfect for any occasion!

You will need:


  1. Before you begin curling, make sure your hair is clean and dry.
  2. Prepare your hair by gently detangling it with a paddle brush or wide tooth comb.
  3. Horizontally part your hair starting at the temple and clip it out of place.
  4. Start with a vertical section of hair around an inch thick (the smaller the section the more curls you’ll have).
  5. Start wrapping your hair at the base of the barrel, and keeping a firm grip on your hair, wrap the entire section around the barrel without overlapping.
  6. Hold the tip of the section tightly around the barrel for a few seconds and release. The longer you keep your hair on the barrel the more defined your curls will be.

P.S. When you’re done with your whole head, don’t forget to run your fingers through your hair! This will give your curls a more natural look.

Spritz a shine mist to leave your hair smooth frizz-free.

Stay beautiful!


Quick Beauty Tip – Homemade Treatments for Damaged Hair

treatments-for-damaged-hairI’m obviously obsessed with beauty products and I’m not ashamed to say it – but I am also a fitness buff and fully understand and recognize the power of the natural ingredients we all have access to. So many of the delicious & nutritious things we include in our diet can also be used to make us more beautiful too! Here are a few of my favorite hair masks using all natural ingredients you can get at any grocery store!

1. Banana & Avocado: YES we are obsessed with avocados! Mash a ripe avocado and ripe banana and mix well. Apply an even layer to clean, dry hair and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and condition as usual. Your locks will be moist & shiny when you’re done! Plus, this mixture smells delicious!

2. Honey & Olive Oil: Sounds like the beginning of a salad dressing recipe – but this combo does wonders for your tresses! Combine equal parts of the two and apply from roots to tips. Secure hair in a shower cap and let it sit for 45 minutes. Shampoo lightly and condition normally afterwards. Your hair will be silky & shiny when you’re done!

3. Thyme Treatment: If you suffer from dandruff, try this – boil 8 sprigs of fresh thyme in 2 cups of water. Once rapidly boiling remove from heat and let cool. Strain and massage the leaves into your scalp. Rinse and repeat with leftover mixture in a couple days. This is a natural way to fight flakes!

Tutorial Tuesday – How To Curl Your Hair With A Flat Iron

Everyone is always asking us how to use your flat iron to create loose, large waves in their hair. Today, we reveal the secret. As shown here, start to rotate your wrist toward the bottom of the piece of hair you are working on. For a tighter curl, start closer to the scalp. If your hair usually holds a curl, you’re ready to go. If it has the tendency to drop when you leave the house, put a mist of light hairspray before you bounce. No pun intended! TT-CurlwithIron

Naturally Curly Hair Care at TheBeautyPlace.com

If you were born with naturally curly hair managing your curls can be aggravating at times. Have you thought about using styling products that work with your hair instead of against it? Some styling products control your hair by making it stiff. Here we give you some great tips in maximizing the potential of your curly hair!

Keeping frizz controlled involves moisture. Keep your hair moisturized with the correct shampoo and conditioner. TIGI Catwalk Curlesque Defining Shampoo and TIGI Catwalk Curlesque Hydrating Conditioner have smoothing properties that moisturize and condition hair. It enhances curl retention and fights frizz! They are sulfate-free because your hair does not need to be dried out.

Going natural is a great way to show off the health, shine and strength of your curls. Plus, it helps save you time. Flat ironing your hair for hours and then for humidity to make it look like a cotton ball is depressing. Another great advantage is you will stand out in the crowd! Try Curly Sexy Hair Curling Detangler to make your curly hair look bouncy, glamorous, and grab all the attention! It is a leave-in detangler that helps not weigh your hair down. By delivering extra moisture and protein to your hair, your hair gets soft support that defines every curl, but still touchable. Starting off with a detangler after washing is a great tool in managing your hairstyle.

Curly hair is easy to manage with the correct styling tools. The best beauty products at discounted prices are at TheBeautyPlace.com.
