20 No Heat Hairstyles

I’ve been on the long hair journey a good majority of my life. That means, you’ve gotta keep the split ends away. The only way to avoid them is to avoid the heat. Which is somedays, totally unavoidable. I get it. However, on those days which it is avoidable, you don’t have to look homeless. I promise.

That being said, here’s 20 hairstyles which require no heat and look fairly put together when finished. Some of these I do often, the rest of them I can’t wait to try!

PEEPS Marshmallow Easter Garland!

Did any of y’all catch my Facebook live disasters last night? Well, first try I had some major craft fails followed by technical difficulties. Once those problems subsided, I tried to come back on. Only to realize after 5 minutes of crafting or so that I was on my personal channel…Oops!

Don’t worry, I’ll attach the videos for your personal amusement at the bottom of the post. Haha! But for now, I’ll supply you with the details & a tutorial for stringing your own PEEPS Garland! I learned a lot from my Pinterest fail the first time around & now I’ve got the “experience” to share my tips!

It found the perfect home on my baking hutch in the kitchen! The bright colors bring a solid spring vibe to the breakfast area. A pair of tacks seem to be holding it up well. I’m already imagining marshmallow PEEPS garland for all the holiday y’all! Since you can find PEEPS for pretty much each season now, it won’t be hard.

To Make Your Own-

1- Gather up supplies: PEEPS in assorted colors, bunny marshmallows (or other springy colored marshmallows), dental floss, long needle, cooking spray (like PAM).

2- Pull out dental floss twice as long as you want the finished garland to be.

3- Thread the needle through the dental floss, folding floss in half with needle in the middle. Tie the two ends of the floss together. *Using an extra long needle works the best. Be sure your needle is longer than your PEEP.

4- Lay a towel down over the workspace. Keep project over towel to manage the mess. Spray dental floss & needle with cooking spray.

5- Start threading the PEEPS on! Pick a pattern or don’t, it’s up to you! I used the smaller marshmallows in between the PEEPS; you can use all PEEPS if you prefer. I’m not sure if you can tell, but they’re actually mini, bunny marshmallows. I found them in the seasonal Easter section at Target. *Be sure to string needle through the top of the head of each PEEP. If you pierce the needle through the body, you risk the chance of your PEEPS turning over.

6- You will need to spray more cooking spray over the floss & the needle as you go along. Otherwise, you will have a big, sticky mess!

7- Leave plenty of floss at each end for tying a loop to hang the garland by. The more PEEPS you add on, the heavier the garland will get. Keep this in mind when considering where you’ll hang it too. It will be hard to tie loops onto the end because of all the cooking spray, but have patience & use a rag to wipe it off!

I decorated the rest of my baking hutch with some yellow Easter grass & pink, plastic eggs. Super simple!

The leftover marshmallows look perfect in a couple of glass canisters! Add them to hot chocolate or homemade rice crispy bars for a real treat!

Don’t forget to pin it for later! —>…
