half up twist, hair tutorial



This is a super simple hair tutorial and I surely do not think that I know all that much about hair! 

But I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorite ways to wear my hair in 2013!

If you are a curious about my hair straightener ( it can be used to create waves or to straighten) it can be found here
It is the worth the price in my opinion, I have had mine since college!

    This looks great! Can you share how you create your waves with your straightener?

    Is your hair naturally super straight or does it have some body to it? Mine is stick straight and I can't seem to get it to hold a curl for more than a few minutes – I'm wondering if a chi would be worth it.

    Casey, your hair is so magical and soft looking. And messy-without-effort-looking. It looks great long, too!

    Looks great! I like pulling pieces of my hair back like that, it's nice having my hair out of my face, but still 'down'. Do you get your hair highlighted?

    I used a straightener to curl my hair, too! But then I cut it off and I started missing my long locks… 🙁 Beautiful tutorial!
