Earlier on this summer, I posted the Hippie Halo tutorial. Its one of my favorite tutorials to date, but there was a whole section of me taking my hippie halo out for a bike ride that didnt make the final cut. I watched it recently and decided it was too cute to be unshared. Check it out below!

(my take on some crappy hippie pose)

Since posting the Hippie Halo tutorial last month, Ive loved getting tagged in your tweetpics and instagram photos. Seeing the Hippie Halo in action makes both my heart and my hair swell. Some of you have gotten creative, and just done some partial hippie halos. Ive been calling it the Halfie Halo. Its a good look for those of you who like hair in your face (I do!).

Lacys is gorgeous.

Andreas is gorgeous.

These two inspired me to try the halfie halo. Even though its called the halfie halo, I wore it and felt fully cute. That was a bad jokebut a true statement. This beautiful headband was sent to me by a company called Andreas Beau. Its not really done too differently than the full blown hippie halo. Alls you do is situation your headband to your liking, then tuck the back section only. Easy as anything!

My top is from Forever 21, my jeans are from Rag&Bone, my wedges are from Steve Madden and my headband is from Andreas Beau.

As always, share your Hairdresser on Fire inspired dos with me! I love to see your creative takes on these styles. Tag me on twitter @hdofblog, or on instagram @busybusyscissors or on facebook.

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

Please enjoy!

Note: This look is best achieved with an Emi Jay headband. Ive 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 headbandsit seems like only yesterday. Their products are great and Ive enjoyed working with the company so much. We have another video currently being edited that I think youll love!

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