Mermaid hair tutorial

Hello people! Hope you’re all doing alright! Today I wanna introduce you to my favorite hair-guru on Youtube! Her name is Bebexo, she has the most beautiful hair tutorials and she can always make them simple. <3 A few days ago I had to pick up my mom at the airport and my hair was looking so bad! I was gonna french-braid it, but I saw her new tutorial and decided to give it a try! I have half as much hair as she has and I also have layers, which makes mu braids thinner, so it looks smaller than her’s, but I think it was good enough, hahaha:

The frontal look (with my 'old' hair, haha)

The braid

It is not the best picture ever, but… Well, as I said, she has much more hair than I do, so it looks better on her hair, I can’t wait to get myself some hair extensions! Also, as you can see, my hair is all faded, I was letting the color go away  just washing it, I didn’t wanna bleach it anymore, I changed the color, as you saw on the last post. :D

Here is Bebexo’s tutorial:

So, what do you think of this look? Do you wanna try it? I hope you enjoyed it! :D Bye! o/

Nail art time!

First I would like to thank you all for following and commenting, I wasn’t expecting it that soon! Thank you very much! It means a lot more than you can imagine. <3

Now I’ll make a quick tutorial on how to do the nail art I’m using this week! It’s pretty simple, but it’s cute. :3 Also, I was bored with my squared nails and filed them, now I have Saber Tooth pointy nails, hahaha. >3

So, choose any two colors you like, I’m using a light and a dark purple. After applying your favorite nail strengthener and base coat, apply two coats of your lighter color (or enough coats to make it opaque), then paint diagonally the tips of your nails with your darker color. Like this:

Pointy, bohohoho >3

But do all your nails, this was just to show you the base color too. Now take your darker color and make tiny hearts following the diagonal line, it’s easier than it sounds! Just make two dots and connect them, like this:

I bet you are impressed with my photoshop skills NOT

Make three or four hearts, or as many as you want. (: My tip is, if you’re right handed than do your right hand first, if you can do on this hand, you certainly can do your left hand! Since I started doing nail art I follow this “rule”, it works for me, may work for you too! (oops, just screwed one of my nails typing D: But it’s ok, thankfully was just the very tip, can easily be corrected, yay! :D). Now use your lighter color to make dots following the diagonal line too, you can even make one heart too, so cute! :3 Well, it should look like this:

Yay, hearts! :D

Before I finished doing this to all my nails, I took a picture to show you another possible look, I found this one cute too! (just ignore my index finger on this picture). Here:

Dots and one heart, charming, huh? <3

Now, finish all your nails and I just realized you have a Valentine’s Day nail art! :D Too early for that? I don’t know, valentine’s is only in july here in brazil, lol. Add glitter if you’d like to or just top coat it and it’s done, yaaay! It’s easy right? Now, for the final look, TA-DAAAA:

Final look, cute and easy!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, I can make more if you find this helpful! Now, I better be going, since I still need to buy lunch and it’s almost dinner time, hahaha. See you soon, bye!!

How to dye your hair with a fantasy color

Hello guys! Today I wanna give you some tips about bleaching and dyeing your hair, yay!

First, if you’re gonna bleach your entire hair I DO NOT recommend that you do it by yourself at home, bleaching is a very serious process and can totally fry your hair and you’ll have to cut it off and if you leave the bleach for too long in your hair it can break and make you cry! ): So pretty please, do it in a salon for your hair’s sake!

Now, if you’re gonna do just some highlights or retouch the roots you can safely do it by yourself. Have a friend to help you do the back part of your head would be a great idea too! (: Something really important is to not try to save money here, you’ll need good products to archive the desired look with minor damage. It’s recommended to use the same brand of bleaching powder and OX, you can also buy a bleaching kit, I know Manic Panic has a bleaching kit which I never used, but read some good reviews about it, the only con I read is that only one kit is not enough for long hair (which is obvious, bitch please). I know Amazon sells it, you may also find it at Sally’s and you can buy online from Fuel The Army too.

The 20 volume is for lighter hair, 30 is for almost all hair colors and 40 is for really dark brown or black hair. It’s always important to test it in a very small piece of hair so you can see if your hair can handle it without too much damage. Never leave bleach on your hair for longer than 45 minutes (one hour at max!!!), otherwise it will break or become elastic and week AND no hair color will stick on it for more than two washes. I’m being this annoying about it because I’ve left bleach on my hair for too long once, fortunately only one piece broke, but the rest became very week and fragile and would break all the time, it took a long time and a lot of money to make it better, but it’s still weaker than the rest of my hair and I’m always worried if it’s gonna break and fall and leave me with short hair… ):

Even if you have natural blonde hair it is necessary that you bleach your hair so the fantasy hair dye can penetrate your hair properly, so use the 20 volume OX and leave it for 15~20 minutes, it’s enough for blonde hair. You can dye it without bleaching, but it will last for a shorter time and will look darker that it was supposed to. The tone of blonde you need to archive for each desired color is different. Reds and oranges requires an orange-yellowish blonde; greens, pinks and yellows requires light yellow blonde; blues, purples and light colors (baby pink, lavender etc…) requires really blonde hair (around level 9); for white and silver colors you have to bleach your hair until almost white.

If you have dark hair, don’t try to archive a very light blonde in only one day, it won’t happen, you will probably need to bleach it three times, you’ll need to wait at least one week between bleaches and will have to hydrate your hair a lot during this period (and after it too), this way you can archive healthy light blonde hair. :D

Now, there’s a trick for yellowish blonde hair, if you want to break the yellow, you can neutralize it with violet shampoo, you can also use this kind of shampoo to maintain white hair!

I think that’s it for bleaching, dying is the easy and fun part! Just divide your hair in small sections and spread the dye with a brush (the bleaching kit includes one!) evenly. Each brand works in a different way, so read the instructions to archive better results. If there’s a section you wanna keep blonde, you can cover it with conditioner to protect it from the dye. And remember to use gloves! Unless you like to have colored hands, that’s up to you!

So, I think that’s it! If I missed something or if you have a question, please let me know!
