Easy side French braid

Hi everyone,

     Sometimes the simplest hairstyles are the best.  Today I combed all my hair to one side, then made a side French braid with a braided bun.  I love how this look turned out.  It will be great on future mornings when I'm in a hurry or want a simpler look.  Thank you for visiting my blog!

Edgy French Mohawk Braid

Hi friends,

     Today I braided my hair in a center mohawk braid, and added a small braid on either side to edge the part line.  I love the extra special look this simple step adds to this hairstyle.  Thank you so much for visiting my blog to see my new post, I hope you have an amazing weekend.

Big low buns are my favorite

Hi everyone,

     Hairstyles with big low buns are my favorite every-day look.  Today I combined a simple Dutch braid with a big low bun.  Here are some pictures taken in the evening light, after wearing my hair in this style all day long.  You can see how well it lasts, no matter how busy I was during the day.  Thank you for visiting my blog!

Pink Wreath Bun

Hi friends,

     This morning I wore a favorite pink top with lace trim, so I fixed my hair in a style to match, using a pink lace headband and flower clips to dress up a low bun.  I love the simple yet fancy look of this hairstyle.  Denim flowers add a shabby chic touch.  How nice to take hair pictures in front of my pink flower wreath, in the light that is streaming in my room from outside.  On super sunny days like today, it's great to be able to take hair pictures indoors for a change :-)

Every-Other Updo

Hi everyone,

     Today I fixed my hair in four sections, and French braided every other sections.  I left the extra two sections unbraided, and put the length of my hair in a side bun.  I love the texture of this hairstyle, it's fun to mix things up a bit and not braid every parted section of hair.  Thank you for coming to see my new pictures!  Be sure to check out the DIY hair mask and length pictures that I shared yesterday.  Have a wonderful day <3

Length pictures after a new DIY hair treatment

Hello friends,

     Last night I tried out a new DIY recipe for hair, and it was amazing!  This morning my hair was so silky and soft, also very straight and full, a look that I love in length pictures.  Here's what I did:

     I mixed together about 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 1/2 tablespoons milk, and 1 1/2 tablespoons honey.  I stirred these three ingredients together until smooth.  (The consistency was similar to conditioner.)  I put this mixture on my hair.  (I still had several spoonfuls left in the bowl when I felt like I had applied enough, so I didn't use quite the entire amount.)  Next I piled my hair into a bun and clipped it in place, and let the conditioning mask soak in for about 30 minutes.  After that, I washed my hair as normal, making sure I thoroughly rinsed out the DIY hair mask before I went on to Condition-Wash-Condition with Herbal Essences Moroccan My Shine shampoo and conditioner.

     Later when I combed out my wet hair, I hardly lost any hairs at all in my comb.  My hair was very easy to comb out, and it smelled great.  (I hate the smell of mayonnaise but I'm willing to endure it if it helps my hair.  Thankfully there was no mayo smell in my clean hair.)

     If you're looking for a way to straighten your hair without heat, try this hair mask and see how it works for you.  Here are length pictures from this morning, after using this DIY hair mask the night before.

Hair pictures by the ocean

Hi friends,

     This morning my sister and I were driving down by the ocean here on our small island home, and stopped to take pictures.  What a beautiful background view <3  My hairstyle today is a combination of lace braids and double buns, with golden hair clips to add interest.
