Top 04 Go-To Hairstyles (Long Hair)

LONG HAIR EDITION

Well hello you beautiful devil you. NICE TO SEE YOU! I am happy to introduce the new category on MaddyCorbin.com — Beauty & Hair. This was the most sought after & voted on section from my Instagram @maddy.corbin, after getting countless direct messages on "how I curl my hair" and "how I put the beret over the buns without messing them up" I decided to create a Long Edition of my Top 04 Go-To Hairstyles. *secret time* tomorrow I am chopping my hair off and bleaching it for my trip to NYC this weekend! Because of this, you can bet your cute Instagram feed that I will be doing a Short Edition in a few months!

I am excited to see how you style your hair! If you do any of my styles be sure to hag me #MaddyCorbinBeauty so I can see & share! Also, don't be afraid of the Pin, you can pin any of these images to save to your well put together life via Pinterest. So, what's your go-to style this winter? Drop me a comment!

THE TWINS

Step 01: Brush through your preferable blown-dry hair.

  Step 01:  Brush through your hair, I prefer to start off any hairstyle with freshly blown dry hair!

Step 02: Make a part down the middle of your head, all the way toward the back.

  Step 02 : Make a part down the middle of your head, all the way toward the back.

Step 06: Move, scrunch, pin and secure as you feel best looks. This is where the fun comes in. Once you get it where you like, find a loose piece and wrap it around the elastic & secure it!

Step 07: Do the same thing to the other side! Bring on the TWIN!

Step 08: Use previous steps until the second bun looks up to par. Don't forget that even though they are called the twins, these babies are fraternal, no 2 buns are the same!

Step 09: Hold open the beret wide & slide on top of your head, this is perfect because it can hide any fly-aways or "oops!" This is when you could add hairspray as well if you prefer!

Step 10: Take a selfie because you just transformed yourself into the cute french girl everyone wants to paint. Be sure to share your selfie with #MaddyCorbinBeauty so I can spam you.

FISH OUT OF WATER

Step 01: I always start with my natural part because it is to the side!

Step 03: Separated all of your hair into two equal sections.

Step 04: Bring a small part from the outer edge of one section and add it to the other side.

Step 05: Do the same with the other side, bring a small section from the outer edge and add it to the other section.

Step 06: Continue this process throughout the entire length of your hair. Be sure to hold both sections tight & pull when you add new sections. We will loosen it later.

Step 07: Once you get to the bottom of your hair, secure it with your choice of an elastic.

Step 08: Make it unique, loose, tight, have fun with it. I like pulling from the inside out to loosen the edges so the braid doesn't look too tight!

Step 09: Take some hairs out! Make it look natural. I like taking out some around my ears, and forehead.
