We Tried Needlepoint For Your Hair — and It's Awesome

When we reported on Bleach London's hair tapestry last year, our Pinterest blew up with repins. Intrigued by their creation, it was time to take matters into our own hands — so weave we did.

Hair tapestry is, essentially, needlepoint for your hair. It's a lot of fun, and truth be told, and it's a therapeutic, too. (They should provide the activity at wellness treats.) We paired up again with our cronies at Mane Addicts, who brought in Michelle Borbolla of The Gypsy Bazaar. Michelle mastered the technique, and told us a few tricks too. First being: doing this on your own hair, unless it's down to your navel, is a bit difficult. So grab a friend, or use the ease of a clip-in extension — especially when going with an intricate design.

The Knotty Girls: Judy Yuen



I have been in the beauty industry for over 25 years. I specialize in cuts, colors, highlights, styling, perms, and waxing. I started my career right here in Northern California and haven’t left since. I attended Kenneth Beauty College for my formal beauty education in 1988. I have kept up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry by attending classes and workshops held by Tigi, Matrix, and Eufora as well as many others.

I have experience as a beautician in both popular-commercial shops and boutique salons. During my time at Regis Hair Salon, I was a 5 time recipient of the Regis Annual Color Award.

I strive to be the best hairstylist I possibly can be. I am always looking to improve and perfecting my skills. What makes me happy is being able to create beautiful and personal styles that make people feel great.

3 Wedding Hair Veil Looks | Beauty How To

Weddings can be downright stressful. Haven't you seen Steel Magnolias? My Best Friend's Wedding? (Side note: Julia Roberts fancies her some wedding movies, doesn't she?) So the last thing you want to worry about is whether or not your desired hairstyle works with the type of veil you want to wear or vice versa.

Paul Perez, stylist at Sally Hershberger Salon in Los Angeles, specializes in wedding hairstyles and gave us a few inspirational looks depending on the type of veil you pick: the birdcage, the cathedral, and the midlength veil. (Three of the most popular designs!) So which one works best with a top knot? And if you have short hair, can you even pull off an updo? These tutorials will answer all of your wedding hair woes.

Natural Hair - 7 DIY Ideas! (Tutorial)

When planning this natural hairstyle tutorial, we knew we had to recruit the hair mavens at Mane Addicts to help us find the master in natural styling. And they delivered! Celebrity hairstylist Cesar Ramirez glams up performers like Ciara, Jennifer Hudson, and Kelly Rowland, and when we tasked him with creating seven easy to DIY natural hair looks — one for every day of the week — he nailed it.

These looks can be tailored to any natural hair length — it's not about how big or how long the hair is. It's all about showing off the texture of your hair. "It's not about it being too superpolished or too sleek or overly product," says Cesar. "You can do it in 10-15 minutes on dry hair, on the second or third day, and you don't want to wash your hair because you are going out or have somewhere to go. It's more about texture than length or trying too much," says Cesar.
