Tutorial: The Hippie Halo

This tutorial sure has been a long time coming! I’m quite proud of the video, and working with this crew has been a dream! I’m so excited for you all to see it.

Please enjoy!

Note: This look is best achieved with an Emi Jay headband. I’ve tried it with a number of other headbands and the results are just not the same (the honest truth!). I created the Hippie Halo in my bathroom mirror after opening up my first pack of Emi Jay headbands…it seems like only yesterday. Their products are great and I’ve enjoyed working with the company so much. We have another video currently being edited that I think you’ll love!

Go here to scope out all the great products at Emi Jay. And as always, send in your Hippie Halo photos!

    So cute! Love the video too, great production. And if that is your bedroom you have to tell me what wallpaper that is, I love it.

    As for the halo…. why did I just hack 7 inches off of my hair????

  3. Alex Says:

    Reagan! This video is amazing! I felt like I was watching a (very serene) day in the life of Reagan, bright & cheery all while learning how to do the hippie halo. Love the new production style, cannot wait to see more :)

    Is this your apartment? That wallpaper is amazing- and you look adorable! :) This looks so easy that hopefully even I can do it (I can’t even braid my own hair, it’s really sad). I think you’ve convinced me to buy one of these headbands!

    Well done! I love this video! My daughter was intrigued. The same one who saw your curling wand demonstration and who now does a pretty decent job, at 13, of doing her own hair thanks to you. Keep these coming!

  35. Leah Says:

    I totally forgot I was watching a hair tutorial…I got all caught up in the “movie”! I loved this…make more! And keep havin’ fun!

  36. Jordan Says:

    Ok, sorry if I missed this answer somewhere, but- I went to the Emi Jay website and they have headbands that are 1 inch and 5/8 in. (amongst other ones). Which size did you use for your halo? And which sizes do you recommend for what? (Hi, my name is Jordan and I haven’t accessorized in 10 years.)

  37. Audrey Says:

    Yeah! I love your tutorials and I was eagerly waiting for a new one. Cute wallpaper, cute font, cute video overall. : )

    Hi!! I saw this hair style on a woman that came into my work! Naturally I had to IMMEDIATELY know how she did it!! Myself and about 5 other women learned about your website and we’ve become obsessed! You’re so talented! I’ve loved your tutorials so much that I recently featured you on my blog, Sunny Inspiration! I would love if you could check it out!
