DIY Hair and Beauty from Martha Stewart

Hands up, I have to say I love Martha Stewart! Before I got engaged I only knew her as a fallen-Oprah-meets-Darina-Allen-type-figure and had really only heard of her through sideways quips on Family Guy. I still don’t know the ins and outs of the jail thing but what I do know is her wedding website is a treasure trove of all things beautiful and bridal (what’s not to like about that). And she’s all about the DIY!

Here are some of her step-by-step DIY up-styles that are great for engagement parties, hen nights, the big day itself or even just a swanky night on the town… And the second one even tips its cap at Romeo + Juliet…

I have tried this one myself and I have to say, I love it! It’s just so elegant and works well on my mid-length hair.

I’m not sure what I love more about this, the hair or the eyeliner! This look reminds me of Claire Danes in Romeo + Juliet, a pretty, youthful yet urbane hairstyle. And as we all know, Irish women love a bit of volume.

Buns have been a mahussive trend on the red carpet this year, and this is Martha’s elegant spin on the simple bun.

So there you have it! Martha S brings us salon styles without the salon price tag!
