Messy beach waves tutorial!

About 2 days ago I was looking at G_S, and someone commented on getting wavy gyaru hair. As in this kind of wavy:

Someone suggested using a 3 Barrell Waver curling iron, which let me tell you all, works wonders, but the waves come out more spaced out and longer, and don't give the 'messy' beach hair look. You know what I recommend doing? French plaits. Eyup.

Here's what I mean. This is my hair on a daily basis (and this time, I'm not sorry for the stupid face, it's the only kind of pout I can actually pull off x'D):
 My hair, as you can see, is wavy already, but the waves are very layered and long, and almost straight (but not really.). Just look and you'll know what kind of hair I have, ok? x'D
 Now, on the back of my head, I split my hair into two big section and a small one on top. The small one I made into a plait, and curled it into a bun, then used bobby pins to hold it down. I used about 4 or 5, since it was bugging me like hell x'D I then took one of my two big sections (in this case, my right), and I french-plaited it (look up how to french plait on youtube or google, this was only my second time, literally, making a french plait, and it looked good, so practice makes perfect). I left about 3 to 4 inches at the bottom, as my hair looks awkward with the very ends waved x'D I only did one side, since this was at about 1 in the morning, and I couldn't find a second bobble -.-"
I fell asleep with the bun and 1 french plait in my hair, and woke up around 8, and voila, here's the result :')
As you can tell, I was happy x'D The pics are edited, but you can still see how the waves look, and trust me, if you have medium, long, or even short hair, this will work somehow and will look good. Be sure to use hairspray or wax/gel to keep it in longer, since I plaited the other side, fell asleep, and the first one had fallen out already, so yeah, make sure you have 2 bobbles prepared x'D

So yes, I hope this helped at least a little bit ^^ I'm definitely not the first one to have this idea or use it, and there are tons of tutorials on youtube, but it's to show that using waving irons doesn't always give you the desired effect ^^

Here are more pics of wavy hair on gyaru:

I hope you find this tutorial useful and the pictures inspiring, I'm actually doing this again since I found a bobble while tidying my desk and table, so I'll definitely have pictures of it tomorrow!

Bye all, hope you enjoyed reading this post! <3

Oh lord.....

....I haven't posted anything for 50 millenniums, so here's some pics I've collected over the past few months which are good enough to go on here. Some will have info and some won't.
 Dress from Redd, 5 quid. It's cute isn't it :'3
Dress from TK Maxx, parents bought it for me for Children's Day back in Poland :') (since I'm from there and all, LOL x'D).

Small/medium sized crab me and my dad bought in the fish market, unfortunately my mum was away for the weekend in Poland, but, alas, we got 2 large ones the next week, and she liked them :') The head was ripped open for us by the (really really extremely cute) guy at the counter, and the inside of it actually tasted nice :') I recommend you all buy it once in a while, it's quite a challenge to open the claws and such x'D

Fruit, fruit, and... more fruit :'D I'm on a diet, so it's essential for me to eat fruit more often, and they contain a lot of vitamins, and are fucking delicious (duh). That piece of chocolate you see there is the last piece of chocolate I ate this year, as chocolate makes the skin break out easier/quicker than normal.

The afternoon lunch I had about 2 or 3 days ago. It was a tidy one, with the bowls only being half full (once again, for my diet). Home-made chinese which my parents made (and is amazing! And yes, I'm so asian I eat with chopsticks :'P), Bigos (traditional polish food, my mum made it since she makes it the best), and cheese on toast x 2. Altogether, much less than I normally have :')
And finally, home-made milkshake. My mum makes these a lot, and since they're delicious, I really don't mind :'P
It's milk, fresh strawberries, ice, and 2.5 teaspoons of sugar, all into the blender, with a slow cycle at first, then full power. Another one she made up a few days ago is: banana, kiwi, orange, milk, and ice, but this time, no sugar, unless you really want some. Once again, blended slowly then at full power. Really good as a quick drink :')

So yeah, I hope you all enjoyed the pictures, and since my Lightbox was fucking up (my SD cards is partly in fault), I used Pixlr-o-matic instead, and I have to say, it's not as bad as I thought :')

Welp, until next time, whenever that may be, bye bye, and I hope you liked this post and found some of the info and recipes useful, they're quite good for diets and controlling your stomach ^^
