  1. I’m completely useless when it comes to even giving myself a simple braid, so what did I do? I took the plunge and cut off my long hair into a pixie cut. Less fuss when getting ready, easier to clean, and I use less precious shampoo from those tiny 3 oz bottles.

    • Many girls chop their hair off for travel. Glad it worked for you!

  2. I don’t know how to braid

    • I don’t either but you can follow the tutorials and they show you how to create the hair styles :-)

  3. That’s all fine, but what if you have slightly shorter hair and they are not that thick?

  4. I was so excited about the sock-bun tutorial, especially!! I have always wondered how those girls pulled off such perfect buns! Im a big fan of head wraps too although it gets waaayy too hot for them in the summer time! I bike and snowboard a lot and I loathe helmet hair so I do a lot of french side braids and twists. And im heading off to South America for 6 months soon so these tips will def come in handy!

    • Yes, me too! I finally have hair long enough to create a proper bun!

      Braids and twists are the only thing keeping me going right now in SE Asia with the humidity…

      Glad this helped!

  5. I’m always rocking a french braid when I travel. It keeps everything out of my face and looks cute. Practice at home before you go and soon enough, you’ll be so quick with your fingers, you’ll be able to french up your hair on the top bunk of a sleeper train. Its not easy, but can be done!

    • good idea! wish i was better at braids!

  6. That sock bun technique is awesome! I wish my hair was long enough for it.

    • I actually let my hair grow just for my travels. The sock bun technique is great on or off the road. What’s your travel hair style preference?
