Cinnamon buns that are just as good the second day

Hi everyone,

     Today I did something I rarely do~ I kept my hairstyle from yesterday and let it last another day.  Usually I never do this, because I don't like braids or updos that look fuzzy or unkempt.  Not so with this double bun updo, in fact I almost like it better today than yesterday because it has a more wispy, care-free feeling.  It's not always that cinnamon buns are just as good the second day, but certainly that is the case here :-)

Bow Braid Updo

Hello friends,

     Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  Each time you stop by you help me get that much closer to reaching a million views!  This morning I watched a tutorial video by Luxy Hair on YouTube, on a beautiful style called a bow braid.  I used the technique I learned to make this bow braid updo~ I love the romantic look of this hairstyle.  It would be perfect for a fancy occasion :-)

Tribal Mohawk Braided Ponytail

Hi everyone,

     Today I wore a simple dress that has a tribal pattern to the material, so I fixed my hair in a Mohawk style to match.  My braid is a version of a fishtail braid called a hybrid braid.  The basic concept is the same as a fishtail, except you use extremely large pieces of hair instead of tiny pieces.  That's why this braid looks not quite like a French braid, but not quite like a fishtail.  I love it because it lasts all day long without getting fuzzy, always a plus to any braid in my opinion.

     Thanks so much for coming to see my pictures!  I wish you a wonderful day.


Easy to see why this is called a "crab ginger"


And in case you missed it, a colorful Elsa braid was my post a few days ago~

Colorful Elsa Braid

Hi everyone,

     Recently I discovered some wonderful hairstyle videos on YouTube by SweetHearts Hair.  Today I tried out one of my favorites, a pull-through version of Elsa's braid.  I love how this braid turned out, and my worries that it might cause my hair to tangle did not come true.  When I took the hair ties out this evening after wearing my hair in this style all day long, my hair was mostly untangled and easy to comb out.  I just added a little rose oil to the ends, gently combed from the bottom to the top, and put my hair in a bun.

     I definitely want to try this braid again, especially when I have another chance to wear my Rapunzel dress!  Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you have a lovely day.
