braided love


Hello love,

Braids have been a staple in the hair world for centuries now- and it's no wonder! With so many ways to style this cute hair-do, you can really do anything. One trend that has been sticking around for a while is the lace braid- very similar to a French braid except instead of pulling hair from both sides, you only add hair to one side of the braid. It's so cute and a great way to mix up your every day do.
Here's how:
Step 1: Separate the section of your hair to be braided — from the rest of your hair.
Step 2: This braid can go from ear to ear, or start at your part, so start braiding either at the beginning of your part or just behind one ear as you would a French braid. (Warning: tired arms ahead!)
Step 3: When you’re ready to start adding pieces of hair, only add hair to the top side of the braid. For the other side just keep braiding but don’t pick up anymore hair to add in. Continue braiding across to your ear or around to the back of your head.
Step 4: After you finish braiding the entire section, end the braid with a small elastic. If you wear your hair down, you can use bobby pins to secure the braid from moving around. Or you can work the braid into a low chignon. However you choose to wear it, you’ll have a built-in headband that keeps the hair off your face and looks great!

ombre hair... it's growing on me

hello love,
so i'm sure you are probably quite aware of this eclectic trend of ombre hair strutting the runway and all over the red carpet... at first i wasn't sure if this was something that would EVER be cute. lately though, it's growing on me.  
what do you lovelies think about this fun hair trend? 
talk about design... your hair is your canvas.
thinking about adding some color to my ends!

blue blue blue

hello love,
so as you might have noticed from fashion week about a month ago or any magazine lately, blue is in... big time. jewel tones have always been trendy during the fall season, but this season people can't seem to get enough of the deep, royal or cobalt blues! so i thought i would try a monochromatic look (with accents of gold), another trend this season, using only shades of blue. what do you lovelies think about my blue look?? also, check out the CUTEST nail tutorial ever, it's so easy and very adorable.
