Fun Triple Buns

Hi friends,

     Today I wore a favorite top that says "Love Life"~ always a good reminder.  To complete my outfit I wore a very special necklace that I got as a Christmas present from a dear friend, so special <3  So of course I had to fix my hair in a style that would rise to the occasion.  I decided to try something a little new and different and made triple low buns.

Purple Rose Waterfall

Hello everyone,

     Today was another beautiful sunny (and windy!) island day.  I fixed my hair in a waterfall braid, then braided the loose pieces into a lace braid directly under my waterfall braid.  I've seen this hairstyle called a ladder braid on the internet, but it reminds me more of a woven palm frond.
     I added a single purple rose to the side of my bun as an accent, one of the flowers I saved from my Rapunzel braid at Halloween.  Thank you for coming to see my new post!

Audrey Hepburn's High Bun from "Breakfast at Tiffany's"

Hello friends,

     This morning I tried my hand at re-creating Audrey Hepburn's hairstyle in the classic film "Breakfast at Tiffany's."  I made a ponytail and high bun with most of my hair, but left out enough to make the swoop at the front which wrapped around the back and up to my bun.  I would definitely love to try this hairstyle again and again <3

Poofy French braid and herringbone bun~ my look for today

Hi everyone,

     I hope you have a lovely day today.  The weather here in the islands has been beautiful this week, very bright and sunny but with a strong steady breeze.  This morning I fixed my hair in a French braid slightly to one side, and pulled on the sections when I was done to make my braid poofy.  I braided the length of my hair in a herringbone (or fishtail) braid and wrapped my braid into a low bun.  I held my bun in place with bobby pins, then added a large clip on one side.
     Thank you for following my posts her on my blog and on Facebook.  I love sharing hair pictures and posts with my friends from around the world.

3-D French-Box Braid

Hello friends,

Thank you for following my posts!  Today I braided my hair in a French braid, using the 3-D box braid braiding pattern.  Basically you take four strands of hair:


Outermost 4 goes underneath 3, underneath 2, then flips up and over 2 to be placed in the middle of 2 and 3.  So now your strands look like this:


You repeat the same pattern starting on the opposite side.  So take strand 1, move it underneath 2, underneath 4, flip it up and over 4 so that it is now between 4 and 2.


Now to start French braiding, just add a little bit of hair to the outermost section before repeating the pattern.  I keep it straight by thinking, "Under, under, over...under, under, over..."

I hope this explanation is helpful, now for pictures of my braid :-)
