French braids and bumblebees

Hi friends,

     Today I wore my fun bumblebee top, which seemed to call for a fancy hairstyle.  I made a French braid headband with a small 3-strand braid alongside as an accent.  Then I made another sideways French braid with the rest of my hair, and put the length in a side braided bun.  I love the ruffly look this hairstyle has, frilly and fun.

Decorative Braided Braids

Hi everyone,

     Yesterday I fixed my hair in a simple style that still looks very elegant, a low bun accented with a 4-strand braid.  My 4-strand braid is made of 4 small braids, and was the perfect match for my lace top.

     On another subject, before I washed my hair last night, I tried out the hair mask that I recently pinned on Pinterest.  I mixed together 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 tablespoons honey, and one egg and applied the mixture to my hair.  I put my hair in a bun and covered it with a plastic bag, then after about an hour I washed my hair as normal.  This morning when I woke up, my hair was perfectly dry, and oh-so-soft, strong, and smooth.  I definitely recommend this hair mask, and will be using it again and again on my own hair.

Blue side bun and braids~ my Monday style

Hello everyone,

     I hope your week is off to a great start!  It's been a rainy day here in the islands, but I still managed to take some hair pictures in between rain showers.  My style today is made of a small French braid that turns into a lace braid, that ends in a braided side bun.  A sleek look for Monday, or any day :-)

Blue Ribbon Updo

Hello friends,

     If any hairstyle was worthy of a blue ribbon, this one is :-)  Today I tried my hand at a corset braid made with two Dutch braids and a length of blue ribbon.  Instead of continuing the corset effect down the length of my braids, I opted for a low bun and added blue bows on either side.  I love how this hairstyle turned out, and look forward to trying the corset technique again and again.  Thanks so much for coming to see my pictures, I wish you all a lovely day.

Simple side bun with braid accents

Hi everyone,

     I hope you are having a lovely day, how fun to be heading into the weekend once again.  Today I fixed my hair in a very simple style, a side bun with three small braids as accents.  This is an easy updo for every-day, but it could also go for a fancy occasion.  In that case, I would probably add a flower clip or two and it would be perfect <3
