Braided Inspiration

3 Jan

Happy New Year, lovelies!

I was so inspired by my braid crush, that I ended up doing a braid hair do on my own hair.

I’m not awesome at fancy styles and even less awesome in braiding, but this turned out okay.

Style Guide – Hat Head!

14 Nov

We live in Chicago and this week has been so cold!  WINTER IS COMING.

Winter is a great time to grow out our hair and to train your hair to not need to be washed so frequently because you can wear hats!

I have often avoided hats because I feel like they aren’t cute but last year I embraced wearing hats!  Just find a few you love and you will thank me later.  For great, cheap hats try Target or H&m.

Pro tip: if you need to take your hat off (work, restaurant, etc) I recommend keeping dry shampoo on had to help make it look less dirty and less frizzy.  Also, wearing a braided style can help make you look done-up with minimal effort.

Here are some cute styling idea:

It’s tucked under so a little itty bitty tail doesn’t hang out since that’s NOT cute.

Waterfall Braid – cute and easy

16 Oct

Braids are always cute and a quick way to change up your look.  The waterfall braid is a nice option as it’s easier than a french braid and it good for work, school or even going out.

It also looks great with straight or curly hair!  And with all hair colors. 🙂

Easy Hair – Braided Hair Headband

14 Oct

I am no hair wizard so I am always trying to find new and easy ways to style my hair.  The braided headband is SO easy and people are so impressed by it, especially since they don’t make those fake hair braids in BrightassRed.

ImageLove this look?  Here is how you do it!

Image

Take a small section from behind one ear.  Braid it.  Swoop it over.  Pin it.  done.

Hair too short to make it all the way over your dome or you want a thicker headband?  No problemo!  TWO BRAIDS.  One from each side.

Image

Here is the HOW TO!

Image

As you can see, this is the same process as the single braid method except you repeat on the other side as well.

This style looks great with up-dos or with your hair down.  With bangs or without!

Here is me rocking a braid with an up-do:
