Right french braid into left side pony tail

1) Make a part down the middle, go as far as the crown of the head. French braid the right section to the crown then finish braiding to the end of the hair.
2) Comb the left section into a side pony tail and bring the braid across and secure with an elastic.
3)It's hard to tell but I braided the side pony tail and made a bun, I let the ends stick out for that messy look.
Add an accessory, and your good to go.

Originally this style was going to be 2 french braids brought into pig tails but my fingers just didn't want to braid one side, and we ran out of time so I improvised. I thought it turned out really good and she looked really cute at her school assembly where she got student of the month award!

Finally a hair style!!

When I did my daughters hair this morning she pointed out that I haven't been taking pictures of it anymore. I told her I hadn't really been into it lately and she told me to go get the camera so I did. This style isn't anything grand but it's cute and it was quick and easy. I didn't take step by step pictures, but if there's any confusion just let me know and I can do step by step.

1) Start by making an exaggerated part, go to about the crown of the head, like so.

2) Pull the side pieces down and secure with elastic, then pull them back into a pony tail.
3)Once you have your pony tail take a small section of hair, then divide it into 2 sections, then twist both pieces to the left. Take your left twisted piece and cross it over your right piece, continue all the way down, always crossing left over right, this creates your twist, secure each twist with an elastic. I made 4 twists.
4) I took one of the twists and circled it around the pony tail covering the elastic, and secured it with bobby pins.
And that's it, and easy, simple yet cute pony tail. Back view

Curly or straight?

I use to have beautiful natural curly hair. I absolutely loved it at least as an adult as a teenager I didn't care for it to much! Anyway it was so easy to manage and if I was in a hurry all I had to do was spray and scrunch, but after I had my 3rd baby my curl decided to be curly no more. That's why I decided to cut it short, if I'm gonna blow dry it I want it to be fairly quick. Anyway yesterday I decided to try something different and let it dry naturally then I curled some little sections with a curling iron. It didn't take very long and it turned out cute, I got several comments on it, someone even said they couldn't decide if they liked it curly or straight better! That made me feel good and it was nice to have curly hair again.

When I got up this morning I thought the curl would be gone or it would be super frizzy but it wasn't. I just sprayed it with a little hair spray separated some of the curls and this was my result..It was nice to not have to re- straighten it (something usually have to do daily). My hubby doesn't usually notice(or care) how I style my hair so I was pleasantly surprised when he asked if I was going to style it like this more! That is the best compliment a girl can get!!

So what do you think curly or straight?

New color and cut.

I am in Idaho visiting my parents for the summer, it has been so much fun. My mom took me and my girls out for a day at the Salon, Ryne got her hair cut I got a cut, color and some high lights Ellie just watched! We had a blast, Thank you Grandma J.

I had all the red stripped out of my hair, I decided to go back to my natural color of light brown with blond highlights, I love it, it turned out so nice. Here's a side view...Front, sorry these aren't the best pictures, they are from my phone. I finally got a new camera but I have to get a memory card for it, so until then my phone pics will have to do!
I didn't get any pics of Ryne, she really just got a trim cause she wants "to keep it short awhile".

No go

So I apologize for not posting new hair styles, I actually have a few I would love to post but my camera decided that it was time to not work any more. So I am looking to get a new one, I am researching and hoping to find one that will last me longer than 2 yrs that seems to be how long the ones in the past work, we are also saving up for it as well which will take a couple of months. So be patient I will be back with more styles.

School Picture/before shot

I got my kids school pictures today!!So this is my daughters I realized while looking at this picture how much I miss her pretty long hair *sniff*sniff. But I also realized this is a perfect before picture, cause the day after this was taken was the day she decided to go through with the "self hair cut". Even though it is curled a little, you still get the idea of how long it was.
Oh well it's just hair it will grow back! :)

New Hair Cut

We finally got Ryne's hair cut on Tuesday, I didn't think to take a before picture but to give ya an idea of how long her hair was they took off 4 1/2 inches! So these are the best pictures I could get of the "self hair cut"...
Why do they always go for the front!?
She took chunks out of the rest of her hair as well, I just didn't get a pic of that the front was the worst of it.
And on to the hair cut. We went with a cute bob, the style looks really cute on her and she really loves it and that's all that matters.
And the front. I am still trying to some up with come cute styles that stay put, as soon as I figure some out I will post them.

Back, not back

Ok so I have been without my computer since the 18th of February, and now I am finally back!! It's good to be back, but I probably won't be posting many styles, ya see my daughter decided that she wanted short hair and so she did a self hair cut! She cut the front pretty much down to the scalp, and then she just took chucks from the rest of it. She has been wanting short hair for a long time now, she just got tired of waiting I guess, I will be taking her in to see what can be down to blend it, and I am not sure how much hair we are going to have to play with. But stay tuned.

Diagonal Dutch braid

YEAH!! A new hair style ;) This is is really easy.

1) Do a diagonal part, from one side of the head to the other, ending just behind the ear on the opposite side, like this;
2) Do a dutch braid on the front section of hair. I did a chunky dutch braid by taking bigger sections of hair, you can do whatever you want, it just depends on the look ya want and also how much time ya have, also you can braid all the way to the end of the hair if you want I didn't. So this is what it should look like so far;3) Then pull half of the remaining hair into a pony tail make sure to include the braid. You can leave it, or you can curl it like we did add a bow and your done. Front shot.
Don't forget to check out my Etsy Shop!!
