Swirl Braids

Hello everyone,

I'm so glad that you have enjoyed seeing a few pictures from my trip.  You can see that we had a wonderful time!  Now for a few hair-do pictures~ a few days ago I tried this swirly-lace braid updo, and thought it turned out rather interesting.  The bun is a rose bun with the two lace braids wrapped around it.  I put the clip in early, before I finished winding up my hair into a bun.  This helps hold my hair in place even more securely, I've noticed, especially when the clip is kind of small to hold a lot of hair.  The first pictures were taken with a flash, and the last couple of pictures were taken without a flash.

Swirl Braids


  1. I am in love with your blog. Your hairstyles and pictures are extremely pretty. And even though they are of the back of your head, I can "see" you smile on the other side :)
    I myself have below my butt length hair, it is reaching my knees, maybe another year or so if it continues to grow like it is.
    I want to know how you keep fly-aways away. That is one thing that annoys me so much. If I oil my hair it seems to reduce it, but not entirely.

    1. Oh, thank you so much for the kind compliments on my blog! I use Suave hairspray (super-hold) on my bangs and my hair-styles. This seems to keep my hair smooth and fly-away-free all day. Happy growing! :-)
