FALL HAIR TRENDS with Guest Blogger Lainey Pemberton

Photo credit: Lainey Pemberton  from @laineymariebeauty

Messy Bun:

1.) To do a chic yet simple messy bun, you want to start by gathering your hair into a high pony tail and securing it with a hair tie.

2.) Next, grab your hair and wrap it loosely around the base of the pony tail, bobby pinning it as you go. Once your hair is wrapped all the way around, ensure it’s secure with a few more bobby pins (if needed), and then begin tugging on the outside of the bun to make it look even more messy.

3.) Pull on your hair at the top of your hair to loosen it up a bit and now you’ve got the, “I tried but didn’t try” messy bun look!

 

 

Dutch Braid Pigtails:

1.) To begin your dutch braid pigtails you want to part your hair down the middle or to the side.

2.) Take a chunk of hair near the top of your head and divide it into three equal sections.

3.) Take one of the outside strands and cross it under the middle strand. Take the other outstand strand and cross it under the middle strand.

4.) Now, start incorporating hair into each of the outside strands by adding in a small section of hair to those strands, continuing to cross them under the middle strand. Make sure to include all of your hair by the time you get to the base of your head.

5.) Once you’re at the base of your hair then do a normal 3 strand braid and tie if off with a clear elastic.

Repeat these exact steps on the other side and then pull apart the braid and you’re done!

 

 

French Braid Side Braid:

1.) For a side French braid you want to begin by parting your hair to the side.

2.) Next, take about a two-inch chunk of hair from the top of your head and begin a french braid.

3.) To start a french braid, section this portion of hair into three even strands.  Now, start a normal braid; take the right strand and cross it over the middle strand. Next, take the left strand and cross it over the middle strand.

4.) Now begin adding hair with each crossover. To do this, gather a small section of hair from the hairline, add it to the rightmost strand, and then cross it over the middle strand. Repeat on the other side by gathering a small section of hair and adding it to the leftmost strand, and then crossing it over the middle strand

5.)Repeat these steps until you’re to the base of your head. Be sure to incorporate all of your hair before you reach the base of your head. Once you’ve added in all of your hair, finish the braid off into a regular 3 strand braid and tie it off with a clear elastic.

The long wait to learn your baby’s gender should be celebrated, so why not make a fun photo op out of this special time in your life?

Gumball Fun

Gumballs are an easy and creative way to represent your baby’s gender. Once you’ve picked out pink and blue gumballs, you can place them in a jar and decorate them any way you like. We tied a bow on to each jar for a simple detail. You can set up your shoot with a blanket and pillows like we did for a casual atmosphere, or set the jars on top of a table with you standing in front of them. No matter how you want to set up your shoot, have fun with it! There is no right or wrong when it comes to shooting your gender reveal.

Take a couple of fun photos of you in different poses, from blowing bubbles to holding the gumballs in excitement. Once you’re ready to take the final photo for the reveal, simply hold up the gumball that will reveal your baby boy or girl.

Silly String Madness

Lover of silly string? Then this gender reveal idea is perfect for you. This gender reveal requires the help of your friends or family, and is a great way to share the moment and fun with loved ones. Buy two cans of silly string: one that is pink, and one that is blue (for this shoot we used 4 cans). Have your friends stand on either side of you and when you’re ready, have them spray you with the blue or pink silly string to reveal your baby’s gender. While this shoot might look messy, it’s really very easy to cleanup as the silly string dries.

We hope these cute and quirky gender reveal ideas will inspire you to have fun and get creative with your baby’s gender reveal.
