Try It! 5 New Hairstyles

May 13, 2013

If you're looking to try a new hairstyle, we've got just the ticket for snapping out of a hair rut! Whether you wear the same old ponytail or your hair down everyday, trying a new hairstyle is an easy way to instantly change your look. We've tracked down a few super cute hairstyles that would change up your look - no need for a trip to the hairdresser or any drastic haircuts! All you need is some creativity and some hair pins!

1. Braid Headband

Braided headbands are the perfect way to keep your long hair back from your face when the weather gets hot this summer. This works best on long hair that isn't layered and is much easier than it looks.  Part your hair down the middle and make a small braid on each side starting from behind the ears. Pull them over each other (to the opposite side) and use pins to pin them tightly against the head.

2. Dip Dye Hair

Use temporary hair color that washes out to get Dakota Fanning's dual-toned dip dye hair colour! If you're blonde, pink looks a pretty contrast. If you have dark hair, try something bolder like blue or purple - don't be afraid to experiment, it will wash out anyway! You can go half and half like Dakota and just let a few wispy colored ends or choose a section and just color one thick section. This is an easy way to get a bit of rockstar edginess without going too all out!

3. Top Knot

For a new way to do a bun, try a simple topknot like Shenae Grimes! Pull hair into a ponytail right on top of your head, twist your hair and pin the ends in place. Let a few wispy hair pieces fall out for a more casual look or go for the ballerina look and make it look more sleek and dainty.

4. Contrast Hairpins

Emma Stone's pretty pinned hairstyle looks amazing and better yet, is super easy to pull off! All you need are some contrast bobby pins and some hairspray. Go for white like Emma or feel free to pick any other color as long as it stands out against your hair. Use a curling iron to create some waves in your hair but twisting a few pieces around the barrel. Or just simply let your natural waves or curls go au naturale. Pin hair on the side and create a design like Emma's by crisscrossing the pins so they stand out.

5. Side Braid

Adding a side braid is a pretty way to add a bit of style to your hair. Add just one or even two or three! Part your hair in the centre and take a two-inch section of your hair on one side and braid it. Secure with a clear elastic and leave the bottom few inches loose for a more bohemian look.

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?

My best friend is autistic and mild to moderate on the spectrum. He has a daily routine and obviously keeps to it.  His sister who's 18 told me about his condition. And she spoke to me about how much help he needs around the house. My friend doesn't actually need all that much help, as his autism isn't that bad compared to others I know. He mainly suffers reading people's emotions, and having the confidence to make friends and talk aloud. But his sister did complain that he was always the needy one around the house when she was younger.  What you've got to understand is that autism affects people in different ways, no autistic person is the same, and so requires a different level of work and help towards them. Your brothers didn't ask for this. They were born like that. I know how it feels though, feeling left out. And feeling like your parents don't love you. They really do. They just don't have time to express that love, which is kinda sad really.  Maybe you could get involved in helping your brothers out. Depending on how old they are, you can educate them on reading emotions, and things like that. They're great life skills. Or simply just being there for them is something you can do. Autism itself is a pretty frustrating thing for the person who has it. My friend hates it, but tries to live with it as a gift. Just a little support can go a long way.

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
