I’m all about a low maintenance hairdo that still looks put-together. And this hair tutorial is definitely in line with that mantra. It involves using a simple gold hoop (I think it cost $2 on Amazon) as a decorative hair clip and simple fishtail braid.

Gold Hoop Hair Tutorial
Starting with lightly textured hair (you can use a texturing spray, also great with second day hair), pull hair through your hoop and wrap it around, pulling it through a second time.
Using bobby pins secure the hoop on each side, criss-crossing your bobby pins to help keep them secure. You can also spray your bobby pins lightly with hairspray to give them extra sticking power.
Taking a small section from your pony and braid it into a fishtail braid and pull sections on each side to keep it soft and messy. that’s it. Super simple!
P.S. I’ve been thinking about chopping my hair pretty short recently. Like really short. BUT I’m about 90% sure I’m not going to do it. Do you ever want to do something crazy with your hair, but your brain just won’t let you?! Sometimes I just feel like I need a change, but then I’m like, wait….I don’t know if I like change. 🙂 Anyway, while my hair is still long, I’ll be rocking this look whenever I can. Even though it looks better on Machaelie than it will on me.
Think you’d give something like this a try? What do you think of the gold hoop as a hair accessory?
