Arigato from Tokyo

Hello friends!

As you can see I'm traveling now, so not as many hair pictures to post but lots of scenery pictures. I apologize for the awkward angle of some of my hair photos, I have not yet mastered the art of the selfie ^_^
     First some pictures at the waterfront by Rainbow Bridge, and Tokyo's version of Time Square~

And my visit to the Imperial Palace, so beautiful :)

Ginger Rogers' Updo

Hi everybody,

     Last night I washed my hair, but used coconut oil first.  I combed my hair out and put coconut oil on the length, especially toward the ends.  Then I put my hair in a bun and waited a few hours, and washed my hair as normal.  I love how coconut oil conditions and strengthens my hair, plus it smells wonderful <3
     When I was searching the internet for pictures to go with my Ginger Rogers' half-updo post, I saw this picture of another one of her beautiful hairstyles.  So this morning I made my own version.  I saved a small section of hair at the nape of my neck, and piled the rest of my hair into a slightly messy, big bun.  Then I French braided the section of hair I had set apart, and wrapped the end of my braid around my bun.
     The morning sun was perfect for taking hair pictures!

Mohawk Hairstyle

Hi everyone,

This hair-do has become one of my favorite go-to hairstyles.  I just start at the top by twisting a section of hair and clipping it in place and continue until all my hair is involved somehow in this center mohawk.  It's easy to do, doesn't take a lot of time, and I love the look.

Make a 4-strand braid look like an 8-strand braid

Hello everybody,

Today I braided my hair in a sideways 4-strand braid, but it looked so neat and even that I hated to wrap the end of my braid up into a bun.  I wanted to do something a little different than my usual Elsa-technique of making my braid appear shorter.  So, I wrapped my braid around my head and clipped it to my French braid.  This actually makes my 4-strand braid appear to have 8-strands, and it was certainly much easier than trying to French braid that many strands :-)




(And just because he's so adorably cute...)
