How to : Get Instagram worthy hair!

bun side_edited-1

Hey! So todays post is a How to: “Get Instagram worthy hair!”

By this I don’t mean you have to change your hair! I am going to show you a few little tips and tricks on how to edit your hair selfies!!!

Something fun for a miserable Monday!

In an ideal world we would all have amazing photographers, lighting and backdrops to follow us around capturing amazing hair shots! but unfortunately this is not reality and we have to work with what we have, all images in this post are just me sitting in front of my bedroom wall with my camera on my tripod!

OK so it’s really pretty simple and I have a few key points to tell you to get started and I will go into more detail in the photo descriptions!

One || More is MORE! The messier the better

Two || FaceTune is your friend, “In a good way”

Three || If in Doubt Black and White it out!

Four || The bigger the better!

Five || Keep it Clean.

Ok so now to put these into practice and tell you some more info!

(All images have a before and after – Left is original photo, no edit, colour change etc and then right obviously with the edits I suggest!)

THE MESSY BUN

bun blog before and after

Ok, so as I said point number one, always go a little messier then you would actually wear, in real life this bun was really pulled out and may not of lasted that long on a day out! But for the effect of it to show in a photo you have to push it that little bit further to capture the image.

THE LONG HURRR DON’T CURRR

down bac

Ok so point number two Facetune (the app) is your best friend! And no, not to smooth the hell out of your skin so you look like a wax work!

Facetune has this amazing option called “Detail” now you do have to have a light touch with this DO NOT just put it all over the image! you just use it to enhance the texture of the hair strands, I try and pick precise hair strands and also detail the highlights/shine in the hair, as you can see above!

THE FISHTAIL

fishtail back_edited-1

Ok so my tip for this next one, is probably one more for blondes which I have only recently learnt being a newbie blonde!

Sometimes the camera can pick up different tones in your hair, but not in a good way! i.e if you can see in the before image, there is one very Orange chunk of hair! which just doesn’t fit in! so if you love the hair shot but not the tones the lighting has captured, go for a moody black and white shot which will really enhance the hair style and texture as there is no colour distraction!

THE FISHTAIL

fishtail front

Keeping with the fishtail, this is the bigger is better rule!

When doing any style of braid not just a fishtail, I really believe the bigger the better, a skinny tight braid just doesn’t look that great! so really get in there and poof it out to widen the braid so the camera can really capture all that texture. (use detail tool in Facetune to highlight the braids texture)

THE MESSY BUN

bun side

Ok finally, Keep it Clean! for me this tip goes with all my Instagram photos (where possible) again using FaceTune!

FaceTune has this amazing tool (used in all images) which is Whiten! I do not use this for what it is technically meant to be used for, it is meant for whitening your teeth, eyes etc.. PLEASE don’t do this! it looks super fake and just weird! ANYWAY thats another story! I use it to, as you can see, whiten my background! I do this with most of my Instagram images as I like a clean white look to them but as you can see what a MASSIVE difference it makes! and its super easy to do you basically just choose whiten, and run your finger around the background!

SIDE NOTE – This will only work if your background is a light shade, my raw background was actually a pale grey wall.

SIDE SIDE NOTE – Obviously I have enlarged these images for you to see clearly what I am doing, Instagram is a lot smaller in image size, so the effects look more natural and amazing on there.

Ok so that is a few of my tips and tricks, I have done a full video on how I edit my instagram photos on my youtube channel HERE but if you would like one specifically on this let me know in the comments!

The app mentioned can be found in the iPhone app store – Facetune (I’m sure most of you have heard of it already!)

The hair extensions I wear (in all images) are Beauty Works – HERE

How I went from Black hair to Blonde hair!

before and after in_edited-1

Hey Guys!

I am so sorry I didn’t get this up last week as promised! it basically was finished last week and I went away on holiday but I left it uploading Wednesday but for some reason it had an error during upload so it didn’t publish for you! and I couldn’t do it while I was away! so sorry!

ANYWAY

Here is EVERYTHING I did for my hair Transformation!

I had wanted to do this for a little while as I get super bored very quickly with my look! you know when you look in the mirror everyday and your just like urgh you again! (is that just me?..)

So first of all I asked you guys what you thought of my idea and I posted this photo on Instagram as my “INSPO” pics

IMG_8092

(photo – Instagram – @tashietinks)

So this is the look I wanted, I wanted to keep really dark roots but have like beachy blonde hair you know?

So the majority of you said DO IT! like probably 95% there was only a few of you that had doubts so I did it!

Here is my before and after

before and after in_edited-1

I started off by doing the colour which I will leave everything I used listed at the bottom of this post including who did what as well!

My colour without the extensions looked like this

blonde henna

And then I went to have my Beauty Works LA weave fitted (all details listed at bottom of page)

Which transformed my look even more and I love it!

Below – Before and after extensions! What a difference!

Right I think that is everything but if I have missed anything out let me know in the comments and I will let you know!

If you have any questions please let me know! and try this at your own risk!

One more thing! This is NOT good for your hair, you can’t do this and not expect it to get damaged in the process! all you can do is try and make it as least damaging as possible and always take your hairs health as first priority as at the end of the day there is no point having an amazing colour blonde but you have no hair left!

I used to be a hairdresser so I know quite a lot of info, if you don’t feel confident to do this yourself or have a drastic amount of black dye build up on your hair then go to a salon!!!

Thank you so much for viewing!

How To – Winged Liner

winged liner blog cover

Heyyyy Guys!

So I little makeup tutorial for you today… I have a video on how I do my Winged Liner… This isn’t to say this is the right way to do it as I personally don’t think there is a right or wrong way, everyone does it differently and I have seen some crazy ways in the past! But its just about finding the easiest way for you!

The way I have shown you is how I do it most of the time, however, if I know I am doing a dramatic wing and eyeshadow look I sometimes use the tape method.  I have shown you this before in previous videos but basically this method consists of apply any kind of tape, I use cello tape, on the edge of your eye in your wing shape, doing this means you can apply your eyeshadow and liner straight over the tape without worrying about the shape and then simply remove it at the end to reveal a perfect sharp wing! I have done this a few times in my videos but if you would like a tutorial on this method then let me know!

Back to how I do it most often!

I unfortunately don’t have any super new tips for you, the only big life changer I found was to use gel liner (my fav is Inglot) and then also go over it with a liquid liner to really perfect and get that liner on fleek! so sharp it will cut you.. hehe

Choosing the right brush is also super super important! I find it easiest with a small detailer brush, I think this is because I do a lot of Art so it feels like a paint brush to me! So with my Sigma E05 liner brush I am ready to draw on my war paint!

Some people prefer a small angled brush, I personally don’t but again this is personal preference.

Here are some pics of the look but watch below my full tutorial on how I do it as I think it is much easier to watch me do it then me tell you how I do it!!

Hope it gives you some tips!

Beach Life

beach blog cover

Hey Guys!

#happyfashionfriday

Today is a little different as I have a few items to show you! basically if you follow me on social media you would have seen that I went away to Marbella for the weekend for my friend’s birthday…

The location was so beautiful but I wasn’t planning on “working” while I was there, but on the last day it was really cloudy and the beach looked super moody which I love! (weird right!) Anyway I thought it would make some amazing photos, as I LOVE photography, it is something I have always done and I am super passionate about.  So I took myself down to the beach with some of my favourite key pieces I took away with me as my “Summer essentials”

So hope you like them and I have linked (where available) the pieces worn.

 ONE

Skull black kimono – Ebay

Head Scarf – H&M

LOOK TWO

My Vintage Levi high-waisted cut offs are an absolute must for me in the summer and while on holiday, you can style them in so many different ways and I love them!

I got mine last year from Brick Lane market but any vintage store have them or Urban Outiftters if you don’t mind paying a bit more for the same thing!

THREE

sabo top beach BW

Oversized Tee – Sabo Skirt – HERE

Sabo Skirt is my number one online store right now! if you haven’t heard of it, they are an Australian brand with literally so much amazingness its unreal! I bought a fair bit from them and already want more! I know you’re thinking WOW ordering all the way from literally the other side of the world must take so long to arrive and so much money in postage, WELL, NO! I honestly am so impressed with their service, I ordered the items on a Friday and they arrived on the Tuesday!! how unreal! and the shipping was so cheap, I just can’t express how much I love this store!

(side note – this is not sponsored as I know it sounds like it is!)

FOUR

I told you I would get a lot of wear out of this white thing from Zara!

In the first pic I have paired it with my fav new shorts also from Sabo Skirt – HERE

(Saboskirt website possibly have the best photography of their items ever!)

I then wore the white thing on it’s own and love the way it looks, I tied it up as well and it still works it is so multifunctional and a great purchase!

FIVE

Lastly is a simple white shirt from H&M it’s light material so perfect for warmer weather and I think a clean white shirt on the beach looks so chic over your bikini <3

So that was almost my whole suitcase! apart from a couple of evening pieces, this was the first time EVER I have just taken hand luggage! I don’t know how I did it, I was a mess packing as I wanted to squeeze in 5 pairs of shoes and then the case was full! AAHHHH but some how I did it!

Let me know which item is your fav!
