Never too late to be my Valentine

Hi friends,

     This week my new skirt came in the mail, and since it is still February I wore it today.  And to match my Valentine skirt, a romantic soft updo made of a simple French braid with the length of my braid pinned in place around my head and ending in a low side bun~

4-strand pull-through braid, for an afternoon at the beach

Hi everyone,

     This morning I tried out a 4-strand pull-through braid after watching a YouTube video on this hairstyle.  Mine doesn't quite look like the original, but I love the look of this braid just the same.  How fun to learn new braids and hairstyles, and share pictures with my friends here on my blog.  Thank you for visiting!

This little bird stayed in his special spot all afternoon...

Can you see him?

I got a present, a fresh coconut :-)

4-strand lace headband

Hi friends,

     Today I made a 4 strand lace headband braid and a side bun, but this particular version of a 4-strand braid is different from the ones I usually make.  Normally I take 4 strands, then cross the left outmost strand over, under, over.  But in this version, you cross the outmost left strand over, under, then the right outmost strand crosses under, over.  That's why there is a single strand of hair running down the center of the braid, which never actually has any hair added to it.  I always wondered how this type of 4-strand braid was made, and finally last night I learned how to create this braid by watching a video from Sweethearts Hair Design on YouTube.  I'm looking forward to trying a ribbon version soon.

Big wavy bun and Big pink flowers, two of my favorites

Hello friends,

     Yesterday I braided my hair in a simple side Dutch braid while it was still wet, since I had washed my hair that morning.  Today I had braid waves, yay!  I left my hair uncombed and put it in a big side bun, so all the waves would show.  I love big pink flowers and big wavy buns :-)
