Did you know, 1 Billion of us that consult YouTube on a monthly basis?
When it comes to all things beauty, celebrity, cooking and lifestyle, knowing the best channels to watch, trust and rely on, can be a challenge. As part of a new mini-series, The Best of Youtube, I will highlight and profile some of my favourite Youtubers from each category.
This week it’s the Beauty Community, starting with Hair.
LetsMakeItUp1 aka Kaley
This girl sure knows a thing or two about hair! Kaley is the hair-extraordinaire, uploading videos since 2010, LetsMakeItUp1 focuses on easy, elegant, modern hairstyles for the average girl. Her tutorials are step by step guides, usually inspired by redcarpet hair, TV shows, Pinterest pictures or music videos. Ranging from Caual Updos , Formal Updos to Casual non-updo hairstyles. To make the most out of Kaley’s channel, I would advise that you have good knowledge of your own hair and what works and doesn’t work for you. She does her best to advise which hairstyles suit a particular hair type or length in the intros to her videos. I would suggest that you try out and practice these tutorials before you plan on wearing them, especially if it is for a formal occasion or big event. The videos are really easy to follow and understand, but some of the styles are quite intricate and require practice. She also features videos on products that cater to a vast range of hair types and styles.
Model turned YouTube hair guru ace, Lilith Moon, features tutorials for all occasions. Her styles focus mainly on medium to long hair lengths. Time and time again, I can consult this channel and learn something new. Lilith also uses clip in hair extensions and features extensive guides and FAQ videos on how to achieve the perfect look. If you want to learn how to create a knotted braid , an interesting, intricate side braid or something effortlessly chic, LilithMoon is the channel for you.
Cute Girls HairStyles
This channel is best for those of you who wish to learn the basics or wish to expand on your basic hair knowledge. It’s also a great channel for a Mother or Father with little hair styling knowledge. Compared to the other channels I’ve suggested, most of the tutorials are carried out on a model. Mindy, the founder of the channel, is a mother herself and the modelsshe uses are her own children. My favourite tutorials are the winding lace braided ponytail, the Dutch lace headband and their 3D Plait ponytail. All of the videos on this channel are really well put together and simple to follow. Perfect if you’re just starting out and love to braid!
Bebexo is an excellent channel for anyone interested in hairstyles thats quick, quirky, and deviating from the norm. Each video is stronger than the last. Her latest one minute back to school hairstyles video is brilliant for every day, even if you’re not going back to school. A lot of hair videos on YouTube can be confusing and full of waffle. Bebexo’s tutorials are concise and informative without losing the effect of an effortless style. Be sure to look at her blog aswell for more advice and all things beauty, including product and style reviews.
Hopefully you like these channels as much as I do. Remember, a lot of the styles featured in these videos take practice. Don’t give up if they don’t work for you the first time! As always, let me know your favourite YouTube Hair gurus below.
