Ok all you gals I'm showing you how I get my ballerina bun today!  I've been asked how I get my bun so huge without a sock or anything, so here it is haha I hope this works for some of you and makes  it so you can have a quick hair day when you really should be washing it, because doesn't ever girl need that!?  
Oh and by the way, I'm sorry I have been a little MIA lately.  I got to go visit my sis in St. George and it was a very needed getaway!  The only thing that stunk was remembering how much I miss them!  You just need a little sister time sometimes!

Good luck with your twists gals!!

I'm sure that many
 of you already do this to your hair so this is going to just be a little refresher for you! I hope you all

Wavy Curls Tutorial  

I have been asked by many to explain how I curl my hair.  I feel kinda silly showing you guys because it is so simple, I don't really have any hidden secrets.  I realize I look pretty ridiculous in this video so don't judge haha and yes that little noise in the background was Hanes, he was loving it! I tried explaining everything the best I could so please if you have any questions feel free to ask.  
(I couldn't figure out how to make the video any bigger, so make sure you expand it.)

  1. Your hair is awesome and very similar to mine. Ideally I'd like to wash my hair less too but it gets so oily that its hard to wear my hair down on a second day. What do you use (if anything) as a dry shampoo or second day hair product?


  2. Hey Cara! I just found your blog on pinterest and i LOVE it! I recently started using the revlon colorstay foundation! I was wondering what shade in the foundation you were?!

    Thanks a bunch!


  3. Thanks for this video! I've never curled mine without clamping it so I'm excited to try this. Just found you on Pinterest :)

  4. You have gorgeous hair!! How it is cut? I know it's a strange question haha but what would I tell my stylist if I want something similar?

  5. Love your blog! I would also like to know what shade of the Revlon color stay foundation you use?

  6. Thanks so much for sharing your hair secrets! You are so easy to follow & seems easy enough for me to do! :-) Found you from Oxford Trunk whoo hoo! :-)

  7. P.S. Where did you get your awesome shirt you are wearing in your ballerina bun tutorial? SUPER cute!

  8. Thanks for the awesome tutorials! I love them! I've always used the clamp on my curls, so can't wait to try it this way. Found you on Instagram!

  9. you are one hot mama! i met your friend brittney larson and your blog is just too cute.

  10. I have a similar type of hair (think, slightly coarse), and am wondering what you ask your hairstylist for cut-wise?

  11. love your hair and hair tutorials

  12. You only have to wash your hair about every 5 days? You are so lucky!!

  13. Thank you so much! I have always wondered how to do a top knot and those curls. You are so pretty! I love your hair and makeup and fashion!

  14. Could you do a tutorial of the sock bun?

  15. I have to tell you that your hair curling tutorial has changed my life for the better! I could never curl my hair before and your method works like a charm on my hair!!!! Love, love, love it! Thank you so much for providing your tutorials! I can't wait until my hair gets longer so I can try your knot bun one! :) Thanks again!!!!


  17. YOU HAVE THE BESTTT HAIIRRR!!! How do you get it long & thick?? or just naturally born lol

  18. love your blog, My hair is natural curly but dry and frizz.What kind of morr, hair you use on your? I can't wait my hair grow long.Thank You!

  19. Love hte blog, I have a natural curly hair,it dry and frizz.What kind morr,[the blue bottle] you use?Thank You!

  20. love your blog,i have a natural curly hair,dry and frizz.What kind Morr,[the blue bottle] you use? Thank you!

  21. i love your blog. but how do you make your hair look naturally wavy with out doing a braid??

  22. You said your waves last 4 days and that you only wash your hair only 5 days. How do you have your hair when you sleep? I pull mine in a high pony and by morning it's a wreck. I always have a frizzy mess near my face, a dent from the elastic, and the rest is half straightened out. Also, what do you do with your hair when you shower? Shove it in a shower cap?

  23. Thank you so much!! I have a huge dinner tonight and will be doing these curls!! I couldnt get them right and its because i didtn have the iron straight down! so easy!

  24. It sounds like my hair is similar in texture to yours. I can wash it and wear it for several days before needing to wash it again. However, since I upped my workout routine, I have to wash it more often because my whole head gets sweaty! When my hair was long (I cut it off for locks of love but I am growing it back out), I could curl it and it would last for a few days. I don't know how it doesn't mess up when I sleep on it! I am counting my blessings though.

    I also love your make up tutorials. I love that you don't claim to be a makeup artist or expert but you can still create easy and great looks. Thanks for sharing!!
