Video: "Rapunzel meets Aladdin and Abu"

Hello friends,

Of course I had to dress up as Rapunzel for Halloween :-)  My braid is a pull-through braid with flower clips added as accents.  Here is a short video clip, and I will post pictures separately!  Thank you for following my blog, I hope you have a lovely day.

Autumn Braid

Hello everybody,

In spite of the rainy morning, I was able to take some pictures underneath a beautiful autumn tree.  Now to decide which picture to enter in Haartraum and Haselnussblond's "Autumn Rapunzel" contest on Instagram :-) In case you are wondering, this is a four-strand French braid.

North Carolina High Bun

Hi friends,

I was able to spend time in North Carolina this week, and visited Old Salem one afternoon. The fall colors are so beautiful now! That day I wore my new top with a lace back, so I put my hair up in a high bun. Always a good way to slightly dress up on a casual day :-)





















This leaf literally fell on my plate!

French Lace

Hi everyone,

I saw an idea for a new hairstyle on Instagram, combining lace braids and a French braid in a way I had not tried before.  First, I sectioned off small sections of hair on each side of my head then I made the center French braid.  Then I started with the left section of loose hair and lace braided it down to just above my ear.  Then I stopped adding hair from that side, continued the braid without adding hair long enough to reach the right side where I continued lace braiding while adding hair from that side for a change.  I criss-crossed back to the left side and finished gathering the rest of my loose hair, and finally crossed back to the right side once more and finished gathering all the loose hair on that side.  I wove the smaller end of my lace braid through the end of my French braid, then folded my braid up to about waist length and clipped it in place with tiny hair clips.  Hopefully pictures will explain much more clearly :-)  All day long, wherever I went, people would randomly come up and tell me how much they loved this hairstyle~ so kind of them, and always a nice thing to hear!
