Indian braids

I don't know about you, but my mom use to put my hair in Indian braids all the time when I was a little girl, and it seems to be really popular now. This style is the basic Indian braid but changed up a little, I saw this on a blog awhile ago I would love to give that person credit but I have know clue who it was. I like the little change, it helps to keep the shorter hair in the front back in the braid. I do love this style it is really quick, it's great when your in a hurry or ya just don't really feel like being super creative, this is also a good style for camping.

1. Part the hair down the middle, secure one side out of the way while you work with the other side.
2. Part a small front section of hair and braid, you can do any kind of braid you want, French braid, dutch braid, fish bone braid, or even twisting it work well with this style. I did a dutch braid, braid down as far as you can.
3. Take the back section of hair and braid it like you would with an Indian braid adding the front braid like this...
This is what it should look like, when you have it done. Do steps 1-3 on the other side and your done. Back.Front. Hope ya enjoy.

"Princess bump"

I can never find my camera when I need it! I was half way through this style when Ryne reminded me where daddy put the camera, so no step by step pics for this one but no worries it's VERY VERY easy and super cute.

1. Start by parting the hair down the middle, secure one side while you work with the other.
Divide the section into 3 sections.
2. Instead of doing this style down the back of the head, we are going to do it up the head. With that said start with the section closets to the base of the head, pull into a smooth pony tail put in elastic, then separate hair under elastic and then pull the hair through, tighten. The hair from the pony should be pointing up towards her forehead not down towards the neck. Repeat this step one more time on the same side then do it again on the other. This is what it should look like.3. Grab the sections from both sides, pull into a pony tail and tuck under like ya did the rest of the hair, then pull the hair back creating a "bump" secure with bobby pins.
I hair sprayed the cascading hair that was left with hair spray and scrunched it, added a flower and wa la done!
What it looks like from the side.
and the front. Ryne called the "bump" in the front "a princess bump"! This style took me 5 mins today, super easy,super fast and super cute what more could ya ask for!?

Braid Puff and Giveaway!

So after being encouraged by friends and stopped by strangers I have decided to sell my hair bows on Etsy! And to kick it off I am going to be doing a giveaway, it's my very first one and I am excited really I am BURSTING with joy!! The giveaway will start on Monday, that way I have some time to get everything set up and decided how I want to do the giveaway, so stay tuned for more info on that!

Now onto today's hair style. I didn't take step by step pictures cause I couldn't find my camera! I did find my camera AFTER I was all done with the hair, and the pictures I managed to take are kinda blurry, so I apologize. I'm not sure why they are blurry I will have to mess with my camera and figure it out.

1.Start by parting hair just in front of the ears, so you have a front section, then separate that section into 3 sections and French braid each section, this is what the braids should look like.
2. Once the braids are done, part a section of hair out just behind the braided section (just behind the ears). Comb it smooth, to get the poof I took a small sock rolled it up and stick it under the section of hair, then pulled the braids back and secured with an elastic. 3. Here you can see the pink sock sticking out, I just put a bow over it to cover it, or you can smooth the hair over and secure with a bobby pin.
4. Curl the back and add a bow (if you want to). And your done. :)

Crazy bow and Etsy?

So I saw this new kind of bow, I have actually seen it around a lot and I finally decided to try it out. I have heard it called many names, pom pom bows, rag bows, I think I will just call it a crazy bow,cause you can get really crazy with it. I really like it, it was really fun to make and the possibilities with it are endless, I actually made this one for a friend, I made one for Ryne that's a little bigger I will have to post it later.

So I have been thinking about selling my bows on etsy again if I have enough interest, so if you or anyone you know would be interested in buying my bows let me know by leaving a comment. Thanks.:)

Princess Leia buns with a "twisty"

So I am officially back now with some new styles. Ryne wanted "two wisty ponwe tails". I was originally just going to pull them into pigtails then twist into buns, but she had something else in mind! I had her describe and show me what she wanted, it took a few minutes to finally come up with something that even remotely looked like what she described, but she was happy with it. So here it is:

1. Start by parting the hair into 2 sections, like your going to do pigtails.
2. Take 1/2 of the hair and pull out a small section of hair from the front, like so:3. Then divide it into 2 section and then twist them together, like this:4. So the same thing to the back, pull out a little section and twist. 5. Bring all the pieces together into a ponytail making sure the "twisty's" are on top. Then twist the ponytail. This is what you should have at this point:6. Then wrap the "twisty" loosely around the pony tail, you should have a bun of some sorts secure it with bobby pins. Repeat steps 2-6 on the other side then your done! Front shot, see she is so happy with her style. She was so proud that she made it up herself, I will have to have her come up with a name for it.:)
