Kelly Osbourne and a few other celebs started the trend on this one. A light purple that some call lavender, others lilac, it goes well with neutral makeup or a smokey eye and/or a bright lip. Miss Osbourne is often seen sporting this color with a kind of punk rock look, but it can be surprisingly sophisticated with the right hairstyle.

 

 

  1. Deeper brights that blend

If you’re up for purple hair but don’t necessarily want to bleach out a darker natural color to try it, this may be an option for you. Deep purples (or blues, or any color you love!) that blend in with a darker natural color are a more subtle way to show your appreciation for creative coloring.

Rose gold is back in the spotlight when it comes to design and fashion and is taking a new form these days – hair! Rose gold hair coloring is a light combination of blondes and reds that gives off a golden pink glow. With its warmer tones, it is a great color for summer and fall and goes well with neutral, natural makeup.

 

 

  1. Gray

Gone are the days when gray was just a reluctant color for the aging. Gray is the newest hair color to become fashionable for both young and old. There are a range of shades from light and silvery to deeper gray with highlights. Find one that works for you and run with it!

 

 

  1. Turquoise

There are many variations on this color, but it’s often referred to as turquoise or “mermaid” blue. You can find it as an all-over color, blended in, or as an ombre , and it is sometimes mixed with other brights or pastels to create fun color combos like “cotton candy.” Bright, bold makeup can be a fun match to this hair.

 

 

  1. Burgundy

Burgundy is a great color for the fall and winter months and can be altered to match warm or cool skin tones. Basically, it’s a combination of deep reds and purples that really gives hair a punch! A darker natural color can blend very well with burgundy if you’re looking for something subtle, but for more va-va-voom you may need to lighten your hair. Blondes may need to go a little darker to avoid a brighter, more purple hue but it’s a look any natural color can achieve.

 

 

  1. Vivid red

You’ve seen it before on celebrities like Rihanna and probably wondered if you could pull it off. Don’t be afraid to try! Warmer skin tones look great in this color but it looks fabulous against a very light skin as well. A nude lip or a bold red that matches the vibrancy of the hair color are a perfect match when it comes to makeup.

5 Up Dos

Need some new hair ideas? Try one of these 5 fun updos. Find them at @tipsaholic #hair #hairstyles #updos

5 Up Dos

For most formal occasions the up do is a must. It keeps your hair up and out of your face, allowing your outfit to shine. It can also give you a professional look when needed. Check out these five easy updos for ideas for your next event.

 

Top Bun Updo

This look will always be stylish and is so simple to do. Simply pull hair into a high ponytail, twist the hair around into a bun, and secure with an elastic band. No need to add another accessories or even hairspray.

 

French Knot Updo

This is a classic look that is perfect when a sleek, professional looking hairstyle is needed. Part hair from one side, and sweep hair to the back of the head. Then twist them to form a neat outer edge, and a rolled-inwards look from the other side. Pin in place.

 

Braided Loop Updo

This is a sweet, romantic look. Part hair at the top and braid each side portion of the hair into two braids. Take the rest of the hair and make into a ponytail. Fold the end of the ponytail back towards the nape of the neck, to make the hair into a large loop, and secure with an elastic band. Cross the two braids over the ponytail, and wrap the ends of the braids around the elastic bands to hide it. Secure all loose ends of the hair underneath with pins.

 

Twisted Reverse Updo

When you just need hair up off your neck, and want to take about 10 seconds to do it, this is perfect hairstyle. Pull hair back into a low ponytail. Then twist hair, and secure it to the crown of the head with a clip or barrette. Either leave ends loose for a messy look, or tuck them under the hair and pin for something more polished.

 

Rolled Updo

Gather hair in a low ponytail with an elastic band placed about an inch lower than normal. Part the hair in half right above the elastic band. Flip the ponytail through, and then pull the end back up and tuck right above the elastic band. Pin in place to secure.

5 Braid Hairstyles

If you have medium to long hair there are so many ways to wear your hair. An easy and intricate way to do your hair is with braids. Here are 5 Braids to try. 5 Braids Hairystyles via tipsaholic.com #braids #hair #hairstyles

5 Braid Hairstyles

The braided hairstyle is making a comeback. The best part is it keeps long hair from turning into fly away hair, while adding sophistication to any hairstyle. So channel your inner Katniss Everdeen and check out these 5 braid hairstyles.

 

Multi-Braided Bun

Section hair and create four braids, two braids using hair from the sides, starting at the top, and two braids from the bottom middle portion of the hair. Simply wrap one of the middle section braids into a bun, and then twist the other middle braid around the bun. Take the two side braids and add them to the bun, leaving a portion of the two braids visible along the sides of the head. Secure the bun with bobby pins.

 

Braid Integrated into a Bun

Divide hair into a front and back section. Gather the back section into a ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Take one section of the front portion of hair and two sections of hair from the ponytail and braid it together. Continue braiding and added in more sections of hair from the ponytail and the front portion as the hair curves around the head into a large bun. Finish braiding any hair left and tuck into the bun. Add a pin to keep the ends in place.

 

Wrap Around Braid

Braid the sides of hair on both sides. Leave the rest of the hair down. Add a few soft curls for a romantic vibe. Cross the two braids around the back of the head, tuck the ends under and pin into place.

 

Fishtail Braid

Separate hair into two sections. Take a skinny piece of hair from the outside of one section of hair, and cross it over to the other section of hair. Merge the skinny piece with the hair; do not leave it separate. Next take another skinny piece of hair from the outside of the other section of hair, and move it together with the first section of hair. The skinny pieces should now look like an x in the hair. Repeat until the braid is complete.

 

Waterfall Braid

This creates a braid around the head with the rest of the hair remaining down. Starting near your hairline on one side begin with three piece of hair like you are going to do a French braid. Braid the hair for about a few inches then drop the middle piece to hang down with the rest of your hair, at about your part line grab another piece of hair to replace it. Repeat braiding a few inches, dropping a piece of hair to blend in with the rest of your hair, replacing it with another piece of hair, and continuing. When you get to your opposite ear, do a normal braid for about an inch, and then secure in place with a bobby pin.

5 Work Hairstyles

Need some new inspiration for work hairstyles? Here are five ways to do your hair for work with a professional flair. 5 Work Hairstyles via tipsaholic.com #work #hair #beauty #hairstyles #workhair

5 Work Hairstyles

The office often calls for a certain look. You have the right outfit to project that professional image. And of course the shoes need to be perfect. But to complete the look, you often need the right hairstyle. Here are 5 work hairstyles to keep you looking great while doing your job.

 

Decorative Twist

This style works best with either thin or shorter hair. Gather hair together. Twist and tuck hair into an informal chignon. Secure with a few decorative hair accessories to complete the look.

 

Looped Bun

And for those of you with longer hair, try out this hairstyle. Create a high ponytail and secure with an elastic band about an inch lower than normal. Part hair right above the elastic band, and flip the ponytail through. Fold the ponytail in half into a loop and secure the ends with pins against the head, underneath the top fold of hair. Make sure the hair stays sleek by adding some hairspray.

 

Long Ponytail

This hairstyle keeps the hair off your face, but still allows your hair to have a little flow. Create two ponytails one high on the head and one closer to the nape of the neck, one directly above the other. Make some soft curls in the hair to add volume and texture. From the back, this will make your hair seem much longer than it really is.

 

Side Braid

This one is fast and easy. Make a haphazard part in your hair. Braid hair to one side of your head, and secure with an elastic band at the bottom. Pull out a few face framing features to add to the style.

 

Long and Straight

Sometime simplest is best. Simply leaving hair down could be the best way to go. To keep it professional, avoid out of control curls, and keep the look polished and straight. The use of a flat iron could be a benefit for this style.

6 Ponytails

6 Simple Ponytails ~ Tipsaholic.com

The quick cure for any bad hair day is always a ponytail. But just because it is a quick fix, doesn’t mean it can’t also add some serious style to your look. Here are 6 ponytails that are sure to look great. They might just become your go to look no matter what kind of day.

 

Inside Out Ponytail

This is the average ponytail with a twist. Gather hair back into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic band an inch or so lower on the ponytail than normal. Separate the hair right above the elastic band in half, and flip the ponytail through.

 

Side Lace Braid Ponytail

This creates a beautiful and romantic look. Plus is keeps all the hair out of your face, showing your face clearly. Start with braiding the front section of the hair, keeping the braid to one side of your head. Gather all the rest of the hair into a low ponytail and secure the ponytail and the braid with an elastic band.

 

Cute Headband with a Ponytail

This works best with a thin fabric material or elastic headband. It makes a memorable statement, and could even be used in formal occasions. Place the headband at the front of your hair, and tease the hair at the crown to add some volume. Draw the hair back low at the nape of the neck with an elastic band. Take a small piece of hair, wrap it around the band securing the ponytail to hide it, and pin the ends of the piece of the hair underneath.

 

Half Ponytail

This is an up-do style with only half the commitment. Start by adding soft curls to the hair. Pull the sides and top of the hair back and secure at the crown. Leave the rest of the hair down for volume and style.

 

French Braid Ponytail

This is a simple, but classic look. Create a French braid with your hair starting at the top and secure it at the bottom of the braid with an elastic band. Leave the ponytail portion of the hair unbraided.

 

Twisted Ponytail

This works best on long hair, and is perfect for keeping all strands of hair secure. Pull hair into a high ponytail with an elastic band. Pull a strand of hair over the band, and secure the ends underneath, to hide the elastic band. Twist the ponytail and secure it every couple inches with an elastic band. Clear elastic bands look best with this.

10 Disney Princess Hair Tutorials

10 Disney Princess Hairstyles - tipsaholic, #hairdos, #disney, #princess, #hair

disney hair title
 If there’ one thing a princess-loving girl can appreciate, it is that fabulous princess hair! Follow these detailed tutorials and learn to create some of the most memorable princess hairdo’s to date – all it takes is a bit of creativity, a comb, and some hairspray. Your little princess is sure to go crazy for these new styles, all inspired by her favorites in Disney royalty!

1. Belle’s half up-do

Belle’s classy half up-do seen during her romantic evening with the Beast is a great hairstyle for school but elegant enough for an event. Dress it up with a pretty ribbon or a tidy little bow. In lieu of a Velcro roller to create the “bump,” you may use a rolled nylon stocking or similar piece of soft material.

2. Snow White’s curly bob

Although this tutorial shows how to turn longer hair into a faux bob, the curling and pinning methods used to create Snow White’s look will work great on short hair too. Don’t forget Snow’s classic red bow headband!

3. Jasmine’s tiered ponytail

This Jasmine hairdo is a dressier version of the basic ponytail, making it a great go-to for mornings when the girls are running a little late! Part hair on one side and drape it loosely into the ponytail to add even more Princess Jasmine flair.

4. Ariel’s elegant swoop

Ariel’s “swoopy” bangs and loose curls were perfect for her first dinner at Prince Eric’s castle, and any little girl will look just as fabulous in this hairstyle. Take the swoop down a notch if you’re looking for a look that’s a bit less characterized or add a few seashells to amp it up!

5. Elsa’s coronation hair 

Elsa’s coronation look is a great way to keep hair back and away from the face in an elegant way. Just start at the front and keep twisting until all the hair is gathered and curled into a bun. Oh, and of course the look wouldn’t be complete without a tiara!

6. Anna’s coronation hair

Make this cute up-do your girl’s go-to for parties and events! Anna’s coronation hairstyle might look complicated, but the instructions from CuteGirls Hairstyles make it very doable. The tutorial uses a purchased braid headband like this one, but also suggests how to use real hair to form the braid in front, just like Anna.

7. Cinderella’s up-do

Simple and sweet like Cinderella, try this easy up-do on any busy morning! This is a style that can work for many lengths of hair and can be dolled up with a bow in the back or, as Cinderella prefers, a headband in the front! Add a little volume in the front to capture even more princess essence.

8. Elsa’s side braid

We’re going to double-up on Elsa hairstyles because, let’s face it, she’s got great hair. And who doesn’t love the loose, wavy braid Elsa styles for herself after letting it go? Avoid those tight, head-numbing braids and try this more relaxed look instead.

9. Rapunzel’s fancy braid 

Follow this tutorial to give the girls Rapunzel’s elaborate braid whether or not their hair is a mile-long. If you really want to capture the look, add some pretty flowers and hair clips.

10. Merida’s tight curls

Merida’s rather unruly curls may not be your cup of tea, but with a bit of taming they can be perfect for a bouncy, spiraled hairdo for the little girls in your life. This tutorial uses plastic drinking straws and bobby pins to create the perfect spiral curl. Short-haired girls can pull off the same technique using straws that have been cut down to size.

7 Hot Beach Hairdos

7 Hot Beach Hairdos | Tipsaholic.com #hairstyles #braids #beach #hair #hat

tipsaholic-7-hot-beach-hairdos-title

 

Going swimming with your family and friends during the summer is a lot of fun, but looking at photos of yourself with messy and wet hair isn’t as thrilling. Try these 7 beach hairdos and look stylish even when soaking wet. Take a few minutes to do your hair before you jet off to the beach or pool and you’ll look great all day long!

 

1. French braid on the front, ponytail in the back

This swimming hairstyle is fairly easy to do and will look great on everyone. Most hair lengths will work just fine with this ‘do. First, section off your hair on the top and make a french braid along the side. Then pull back your hair into a ponytail (as seen on Fitbie) or a low, messy bun.

tipsaholic-beach-french-braid-ponytail-fitbie

 

2. A few thin braids around the face, keep hair down

If you prefer to keep your hair down when swimming, keep it stylish with a few thin braids to frame out your face. You could do two thin braids at the front, off to one side, or braid a section in front of each ear like Brooklyn Decker does here in People Magazine .

tipsaholic-beach-small-braids-hair-down-people-magazine

 

3. Side fishtail braid

This swimming hairdo featured on Stylezza is easy to do and looks good even when messy, making it a good choice for long days spent at the beach with the wind and sand blowing through your hair.

tipsaholic-beach-fishtail-braid-stylezza

 

4. Cornrows

Cornrows (as seen below on Daily Hairstyles) is a popular swimming hairdo, and for good reason. They keep hair off your face, stay neat for a long time, and can be done with any hair type. Yep, braids make the best beach hairdos.

tipsaholic-beach-cornrows-daily-hairstyles

 

5. Headband and a messy bun

Keep it simple with a cool headband and a messy bun. This will help protect your hair from the sun and wind, but you’ll have to remove the headband before swimming and put it on again when you get out of the water. The good news is that it’s pretty easy to put on. Check out this tutorial by Keiko Lynn to learn how! Or keep it simple and grab a colorful headband that you can just put on without any fuss. You could try adding some bobby pins to help it stay on while you swim.

6. Low chignon

With a low chignon, you’ll look stylish even when your hair is soaking wet. I like to add a side part to my low chignon, but do what looks best on you. Add some earrings and you’ll go from pool-ready to party-ready in a few seconds. Check out this beautiful chignon from The Small Things Blog.

tipsaholic-beach-low-chignon-the-small-things-blog

 

7. A hat!

This isn’t exactly a hairstyle, but it’ll do in a pinch. Don’t wear just any old hat, though. Wear a colorful and sporty baseball cap, which goes great with a bikini. Try a cowboy hat or a cool fedora. An extra large beach hat is always a classic, like this one from Ali Express, along with big black sunglasses.

tipsaholic-beach-hat-ali-express

 

I hope you’re as inspired by these beach hairdos as I am! I think I’ll be rocking the braid in the front and ponytail in the back for most of the summer. What about you? What beach hairdos do you turn to for a long day of water fun?
