Short hair for the day~ Christmastime

Hi dear friends,

     My wedding day is two weeks from tomorrow~ I am so excited!  Today I fixed my hair in a simple updo that is made with hairclips.  It creates the look of short hair for a day, no cutting involved at all :-)

Hi everyone,

     I hope you are having a lovely Christmas season.  I am happily making wedding plans, which also means I'm mostly absent on my blog.  I do apologize, but thank you for all your warm wishes and kind thoughts.  I am so very happy <3

     Today I braided my hair in a simple 4-strand braid, such a fun hairstyle that is perfect for any occasion.  Thank you for visiting my blog!

Bridal Hairstyle

Hello friends,

     So much has been happening lately, I can't believe I have not been posting at all on my blog.  Please forgive me!  But I have a good excuse, I'm getting married!  My love Justin and I are getting married at my home in Micronesia on New Year's Eve, next month.  I've been trying out bridal hairstyles, and have decided on something rather like this.

     Last week I went to get my bridal portrait done!  What a wonderful, amazing experience.  I've dreamed for so long about being a bride, and now it is actually happening.  I love my dress and veil and can't wait to walk down the aisle and be married. 

     To make this hairstyle, I first created a poofy section at the top of my head with bobby pins.  Then I took a small section of hair and braided a 3-strand braid, gently pulling on one edge as I braided to give the braid a lacey look.  I wrapped this braid around like a headband and pinned it in place.  In this version, the bun is a smooth low bun wrapped around with another three strand braid.  In my bridal portrait, the bun is a flower bun made with two 3-strand braids that have had one edge gently pulled like my headband braid.  The pulled-out sections look like petals in the flower bun.  This flower bun is the bun-style I think I will do on my wedding day.  What do you vote?

     I can't promise to post pictures as often as I have in the past, but I will do my best to have something new to share several times a month.  Please feel free to browse through past months and years and see all the hairstyles and braids I have shared along the way.  Your love and friendship is greatly appreciated, thank you to all my dear friends around the world.

Love, Andrea

Lovely Braided Roses Style

Hello dear friends,

     I apologize for going so long without posting any new hairstyles on my blog.  I have a good excuse, two actually~ a boyfriend, and travel plans ;-)

     Here are pictures of a braided style I did a week or so ago, I absolutely love it.  This hairstyle is made with simple French braids and three strand braids, I wrapped the ends of my braids into the roses and pinned them in place.  I love this look, it has such a princess-y feel.

     As always, thank you for visiting my blog!  I will try to post more frequently in the days ahead.  Have a beautiful hair day, friends!

5-Strand Mohawk, perfect for sparkles

Hi friends,

     A few days ago I braided my hair in this fun 5-strand mohawk braid hairstyle.  I love how this braid turned out!  Thank you so much for coming to see my new post.  I'm sorry my posts are a bit spread out lately, I've been rather caught up in some things.  But I still enjoy sharing hairstyle pictures with you when I can.  Have a wonderful new week!
