Bridal Hair Series: Chignon/French Knot Updo

This week’s style is compliments of a DHO reader Loïca who was kind enough to share her personal wedding day hairstyle with us. I love her hair style!  It looks to me like a modern chignon or french knot updo.  Very elegant, with a touch of bling compliments the tiara.  What I like about this style is that you don’t have to worry about the wind getting the better of it, or that it will collapse.  Once the chignons are...

Hair Trim

I cut my hair – myself! Over the weekend I got the snipping bug and the result was a 1½” trim.  I’ve never really trimmed my hair properly.  I usually just trim one or two areas on my head and usually no more that a few millimeters.  After snipping out the split ends last weekend however, my hair needed a trim for 2 reasons: 1) to even out the ends and 2) to get rid of the split ends at the ends of my hair, since I...
