French style side bun

Hello friends,

     How exciting to pass 5,000 likes on my Facebook page for braids and hairstyles!  And my blog is within days of reaching 1 million views, so we have lots of reasons to celebrate :-)

     I love side bun hairstyles, and when they are combined with a headband braid they are super nice.  This hairstyle is a side hybrid braid with a 3-strand braid directly behind it, ending in a side bun.  Thank you so much for visiting my blog!  As a bonus, I added a couple of pictures of my look today~ a mermaid look to go with my favorite "mermaid" clip <3

Tiara headband braid, plus wet hair selfie

Hi everyone,

     This morning I braided a small accent braid, then used this small braid as the fourth strand in a 4-strand headband braid.  I combed my hair into a smooth bun, and my style was finished.  It lasted all day long as you can see, since these pictures were taken this evening before sunset.

     Tonight I washed my hair, and after I combed it out I checked the mirror to see how close I am to floor length.  I decided I would baby the ends of my hair and try to stretch out time between trims, to hopefully reach a healthy and even floor-length with as little taper as possible.  After all, why not?

Looped braid and fishtail side bun

Hello friends,

     This morning I watched a video that one of my favorite hair artists, Lilith Moon, shared in 2015.  She showed how to make a loop braid, and it was so lovely that I tried it out on my own hair.  I made the looped braid on one side, and added a fishtail side bun on the opposite side.  I love this hairstyle and braid, and am so thankful I learned how to do it.  When you have time, watch Lilith's video, she shares three or four different hairstyles in the same video.

     Thank you so much for following my blog!  I can't believe how close I am getting to 1 Million views!

4-strand Mohawk tuck braid

Hi friends,

     I am so grateful to be feeling better, thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers.  Today I braided my hair in a Mohawk style French braid made with 4 strands.  Then I gathered the loose hair on either side and made a second 3-strand French braid over the Mohawk braid, tucking it in safely.  I added a loose low bun to this hairstyle, and was all set for pictures.

     How exciting to have my hair featured in London's New! magazine.  Hopefully all my friends in the UK can hurry to the shops and get your own copies.  What a unique experience to be included in this lovely Disney-themed article.

Temporarily off-line due to sickness

Hi friends,

Wrap-around French braid

Hi friends,

     This morning I tried a new version of a French braid, called a wrap-around French braid.  I love this style, and it is so easy to create.  Thanks to SweetHearts Hair for an amazing hair tutorial.  I know I will be doing this braid again and again.

     Love and prayers to all my friends in America after the terrible shooting in Las Vegas.  The stories of people giving their lives to save others are a testimony that good still overcomes evil.  "May God bless the souls of the lives that are lost. May God give us the grace of healing. And may God provide the grieving families with strength to carry on."
