Vanhojentanssit lähestyvät, joten juhlakampaukset ovat jälleen mielessäni.
~ The following post is in Finnish only, as it is about a special ball that the Finnish schools have in February, and has some specific information about that day. You are still welcome to admire the photos below. ~
Leteillä saa juhlakampauksesta hieman erilaisen ja päätäkääntävän. Omista kampauksistani suosikkeja ovat Ruusutarhan paperikukilla koristellut kampaukset.
Myös kruunuletit ja nutturat ovat hyvin juhlallisia:
Lettikampaukset ovat paitsi kauniita, myös kestäviä ja (ainakin minulle) nopeita tehdä. Kaikki ylläolevat kampaukset tein alle 20 minuutissa, mutta juhlapäivänä kannattaa varata puoli tuntia, jotta kampauksesta tulee täydellinen.
Tämän vuoden Vanhoille teen kampauksia seuraavasti:
- 13.2. aamulla kello 7 alkaen Munkkivuoressa (Taiteentekijäntie 8 E59)
- myös muina aikoina, kuten 12.2. ja 13.2. iltajuhliin
- sopimuksen mukaan myös esimerkiksi asiakkaan kotona, jos kampauksen varaajia on samassa paikassa 2 tai enemmän (Kerää siis kaverit kokoon, tulen tekemään teille kaikille omannäköiset, hienot kampaukset, ja voimme myös sopia ryhmäalesta)
Suunnittelen kampauksen kanssasi etukäteen joko valokuvien tai koekampauksen avulla. Kampauksen hinta ilman koekampausta alk 45€ ja koekampauksen kanssa alk 60€.

Winter weather and nice hair is quite an impossible combination: any kind of hair do is easily ruined by wearing a hat.
It’s been cold and windy here, and we’ve had some snow, so hats have been on for weeks already. Just having a french braid or two low pig tails is getting a bit boring. So I thought I’d compile some nice braids that will fit under a hat, and won’t get messed up when you put your hat on and take it off.
A good idea is to have a lace braid holding all the hair around the face, these styles will hold well. Here I’ve done one french lace finishing in a french braid at the back and one fishtail lace braid finishing in a fishtail at the back. (The fishtail picture is a bit summery, but works well in winter)
I’m really into waterfall braids lately, but they don’t hold that well, especially if you’re wearing a hat! But a nice thing to do is to tie the rest of the hair back, and your waterfall will stay, no matter what the weather:
This one uses the scissor waterfall braid (tutorial by Hair4myPrincess here). I’ve just done two of them on one side, one on the other, and finished with a fishtail. If that’s a bit too much for you, you can do any kind of waterfall and braid the rest of the hair.
Finally, all half down braids look good with a hat, and if the top part is strong enough, the hat won’t ruin it. So single or double lace braids work well. This one is two fishtail braids, but works just as well with normal 3- or 4-strand braids.
I haven’t been blogging much lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been braiding… Quite the opposite. I’ve been practising braids that I thought were impossible.
First one: fishtail braids. If you asked me a month ago to do a fishtail braid, I would have said it takes too long and will become loose too easily, and looks messy in any case. But now I quite like them.
There were couple of contests on Instagram, where you had to do either a normal fishtail braid or a french or dutch fishtail, so I thought that was a perfect excuse to practise.
This is an updo that I created from two french fishtails.
It took quite a long time, maybe 20 minutes. The fishtails lasted a day, but the bobby pins that I used to pin the two braids up with, came off quite easily, and the braids just hung down the back… but that also looked alright.
A dutch fishtail / inverse fishtail is a bit more difficult, and I never used to like the way it looked. When I practised them a bit, I came up with hairdos where it actually looked quite nice. This one is probably the best:
This is a starburst bun, but instead of french braiding it, I’ve used a dutch fishtail braid, and instead of tugging the end of the braid inside the bun, I wrapped it around and only tugged the very end inside.
This one was a bit too fancy for a 5-year old, and lots of babyhair started sticking out quite soon, but I think it would be great on an adult or a teenager.
