My 1,000th Post! Micronesian "Kieki" (Basket-weave updo)

Hello friends,

     Last night I watched several YouTube videos explaining how to do a basket weave braid, and this morning I tried it out on my own hair.  I have always wanted to do this hairstyle, and although I would like to do it again with more weaves, I am quite happy with my first attempt at this braid.  My Micronesian friends were very surprised to see this hairstyle, they told me my hair looked just like a "kieki" which is a mat made out of woven palm leaves.  How thrilling to hear their description, that they could see the woven concept I was striving for <3

     Thank you for visiting my blog.  I love sharing hair pictures with my friends around the world.

My new YouTube video: Buns & Bows by Andrea

Hi friends,

     I hope you are having a wonderful day, thank you for visiting my blog.  This morning I made a new hairstyle video for my YouTube channel.  It's one of my favorite go-to hairstyles, made with three center buns and two hair bows.  Thanks for watching!

Staircase Braid

Hi friends,

     I hope you are having a lovely day.  How exciting to once again be heading into the weekend!  Today I braided my hair first in a headband braid, made with a waterfall braid and a lace braid.  I wrapped this braid around into a French braid, which I brought over one shoulder.  This braid reminded me of a winding staircase, you can almost see the steps wrapping around one after the other.

     Thank you for coming to see my new pictures, be sure to click around my other posts when you have time <3

Lace braids and a side bun go together nicely

Hi everyone,

     Today my hairstyle was partly inspired by Braidsandstyles12's video that I shared in my last post.  I made two lace braids on one side of my hair, but kept a section of unbraided hair between my braids.  Then I added a single lace braid on the opposite side, and brought everything together in a big side bun.  Thank you for visiting my blog!

Pink pleats and flowers

Hello dear friends,

     Words fail me when I try to describe how much I love this outfit.  I wore my hair in a simple updo made of one braided flower, a low looped-braid bun, and flower clips to match.  My sister and I are traveling to Japan soon, I am definitely taking this skirt and top with me!

     Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I wish you a lovely start to the brand-new week.
