Flipped braids for my friend and me

Hello everyone,

     This afternoon I taught my young Micronesian friends the popular "flipped" braid that took the internet and Instagram by storm a few months ago.  I love the surprise of this braid, it definitely has a WOW! factor.  I demonstrated the braid by braiding my own hair first, then I braided my friend's hair.  Hair-braiding is definitely a way to give girls individual attention and make them feel special <3

Marguerite Updo

Hello friends,

     One of my favorite books of all is The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy.  I've lost count of how many times I've read it.  My updo today reminds me of a style the heroine Marguerite might wear.  It is a braided bun, and I used the ends of my two braids to make a bow directly beneath my bun.  I love the way the tail ends of my "bow" curl slightly and add such interest to this hairstyle.  It's a way of wearing your hair up, but showing a little curl and length at the same time.

     Thank you for coming to view my blog!  I hope you visit often to see my posts of different braids and hairstyles for long hair.  Love to you all <3

Camoflauge Braids

Hi friends,

     Happy Memorial Day <3  I wore my new camoflauge top in honor of the day.  My hairstyle is a center mohawk braid with another French braid braided loosely across the top, using hair from either side of my mohawk braid.  To me, this hairstyle is a fancy updo camoflauged as a messy look.  I like how my hair looks loose and soft, even though it is up in braids and bun.

     Thank you so much taking time to visit my blog.  Please come again soon, and share with your friends who are also interested in hairstyles for long hair.

A simple updo to match my dress

Hello everyone,

     To those of you who are new to my blog, welcome!  I love sharing hair pictures here with my friends around the world.  I washed my hair last night and let it air-dry all night long.  This morning it was soft and shiny and ready to be piled up into this easy updo.
     Instead of making a more elaborate hairstyle, I made a poofy front section with a big bun and added headbands and a bow to match the colors of my dress.  I like polka dots, they are always fun and have a retro feel.  Thank you for coming to see my post!  Please come again soon, and I hope you have a lovely week.

Easy Rope Braid Updo

Hi everyone,

     Today I wore a favorite casual dress, and fixed my hair in a casual yet pretty style to match.  I made a side lace rope braid that ended in a side bun.  This updo is simple to make, and reminds me of Elsa's look for Coronation Day <3  Thank you for coming to see!
