Braid Waves

Hello friends,

Thanks so much for stopping by!  After wearing my French braids for two days, I let my hair down this morning to admire the braid waves.  Here are some pictures to share with you :-)

Fun with French Braids

It was raining this morning, so I had some extra time to fix my hair before heading out the door.  I started at one side and worked my way across, separating sections of hair and making small French braids.  Here are the results :-)

Thank you so much for following my blog!

Criss-Cross Bun

Hello friends,

This morning I did Lilith Moon's three-cornrow hairstyle, then I made a low messy bun and criss-crossed the braid ends over the top.  Everything is held in place with bobby pins and hair pins, and my hair has stayed perfectly in place all day long!

My hair clip collection

Hi friends,

Thanks so much to Les Cheveux de Mini for your kind comments on my previous post~ I took this picture in your honor!  I keep my clips and hair bands in perfume boxes, usually stacked neatly on my shelf with my make-up but now on my bedspread for you to see.  Also included in the pic are my favorite Grah-Toe hair fork,  my combs, and (yes, I admit I use it for my bangs!) my hair dryer.  The round biscuit tin was a gift from a friend in Germany; I keep my bobby pins, barrettes, and ponytail holders in it.
     A lot of friends have asked where I get my clips from.  Most of the jeweled clips are from a local store here on my island; I think they came straight from China.  The rest of my clips and hair bands came from different Ross stores or Macy's.  A few of the fancier clips and forks are from an on-line store called Sophia's Style.  They have a lot of nice hair things for reasonable prices.  Of course, Claire's is always full of fun stuff!  My silk flower hair bands are from their on-line store.
     As always, thank you for following my blog!

Mohawk/Side French Braids Updo (version 2)

Hi everybody,

Thank you so much for following my hair picture blog!  Today I fixed my hair in the style from one of my most popular posts, a smooth center Mohawk-style section with two tiny side French braids.  I gathered the rest of my hair into a ponytail and made a swirly bun.  Ta-da!
