Summer Hair Challenge: Days 13-17

Hey Girls! I hope you had a great Father's Day weekend! Here's the days I didn't have a chance to post! I have a couple that are great for adding a little bit of a fancy twist to one of my favorite styles to do in my hair! Let me know on the poll on the left of the page what hairstyles you like, and then I will try to add more of those in my pictures! See you girls later!
Have an awesome day!

 Day 13:
This hairstyle is a fun, semi-casual hairstyle that takes only a minute or so. Its a great way to take your hairstyle from casual to something you could wear to a dinner if you spent more time on it!
 1. Section off your hair from the middle of your head on the top part and pull it away from the hair at the back crown part of your head.
2. Tease the hair at the back crown part of your head like there's no tomorrow... or until you get the desired height. 
3. Take the section that you made first and bring it back to lay over the super teased hair.
4. Pull all of your hair back into a ponytail at the top-middle of the back of your head/.
5. Loosen the top part of your ponytail with your fingers and "comb" through the top to give it a more separated feel. 
                                                   6. Take a section about 1/2 inch big from your ponytail 
                                                   and braid it to the ends of the hair, but leave room for
                                                   loosening the braid.
                                                   7. loosen the braid and secure with a small elastic.
                                                   8. Wrap the braid around the base of the ponytail, and pin 
                                                   into place just behind the hair binder that is holding the

 Day 14:
This hairstyle kind of reminds me of the renaissance. It is a hairstyle that uses small braids to create a kind of crown, and the hair swept over it is great for keeping your hair off you face during the hot summer days.
 1. Take a small (1 inch-1/2 inch) section from near the back of your head on both sides of your head and braid to the ends as far as you can.
2. Section your hair from in front of where your braids start and pull the braids over the parts. Bobby pin the braids in place by pinning the ends under the other braid.
3. Pull the hair from in front of the braids to the back of your head and secure with a small hair binder.
 Day 15:
This is kind of like the up-do version of the Katniss braid except you french braid instead of a dutch braid. Basically you just pull the hair back along the direction you braided from after you've finished braiding to the end of your hair.
 1. french braid from the top left side of your head to the area just below your right ear. Braid regularly until you reach the ends of your hair.
2. Pull the hair you braided regularly back along the french braid you just made. 
3. Wind your hair back and forth as many times as it takes to get to the end of your braid and pin in place.

 Day 16:
This is almost exactly like the day 13 hairstyle I did, but instead of braiding the hair that you sectioned from the ponytail, you just twist it around the base of the ponytail and pin it in place. Also, for this one I didn't tease my hair at all. 
 Day 17: 
This is a fun hairstyle for going to the pool. you can twist the hair and put it in a bun to keep it off your neck for particularly hot days or if you don't want your hair to get wet.

1. Make an extreme side part on one side of your head.
2. Using all of the hair from the front top part of your head to the crown of your head, start a dutch braid. 
3. Dutch braid all of your hair to just below your ear. Make sure you don't add hair from the opposite side of your head until you get to about half way down your head.
4. Secure the braid/ponytail with a small elastic.

You have to accept whatever comes along and the only important thing is that you meet it with the best you have to give.
