Thank you so much for following my blog! I always enjoy getting to share these hair pictures with my friends. Today my hair was still a little wet from when I washed it last night. (I don't use a hair dryer on my long hair, just on my bangs. I usually wash my hair with the Condition-Wash-Condition method twice a week. I'll wash it at night before I go to bed and let it air dry all night long. I use Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner, and Johnson & Johnson's No More Tears detangling spray as needed when I'm combing my hair out with my big comb.)
To make this hairstyle, I first made two small lace braids, then swooped my hair up like I was about to make a high ponytail. But instead of using an elastic, I held my hair in place with a small octopus clip and twisted the length of my "ponytail" into a rope braid which I then wrapped into a high bun. There is no sock involved, this bun is totally made up of my hair alone. I like the way the little braids peek through here and there. I held my bun in place with bobby pins and these three little hair clips. Then I added my emerald headband as a finishing touch. One of my favorite hairstyles so far!
