TRYING NEW THINGS: BRAIDS

Remember how I said I'm making my blog a little bit more personal? 
Today, we shall talk about hair. 

I'm one of those strange people who does not like putting her hair up. Seriously, I will curl it, scrunch it, straighten it. But when it comes to ponytails or heaven forbid, braids, I'm a definite no go.

This is my hair, pretty much 99% of the time. --------------> 

I love it. I really do. But I've been trying to fix that lately. Trying new things. And I kind of fell in love with braids again. 
So below, are a few hairstyles I've been donning lately. 
(I'm sorry for the lack of personal pictures. I will work on posting those) 

Pinterest is my friend in this sense, so thank you all of the wonderful people for posting these tutorials. 

     This one is probably my favorite go-to right now. Since Arizona is an extremely hot place to live, this hair style allows for a little cooling off. If I'm outside at all, working on something, or even swimming, this is great way to keep your bangs from being plastered on your forehead. 
     Sometimes, I'll leave my hair down, curling the tips. Other times, I'll pull it back, to keep off my neck. Either way, it looks great and is easy and practical.
                             
     
    This is another cute way to spice up your hair a little. Just braid your hair on one side, then pull it back into a ponytail. I've done this keeping my bangs down and pulling them back. I like it both ways. 


    And last but now least, the side braid. What I did here was take one of the three parts of the braid and braid it into a smaller one. Then using that braid as part of the three, I braided them into the side. Then, I pulled the braid apart a bit, making it fuller around my head. You can even add a scarf or a band to the hair, making it more dressed up. 

Well, these are my top three go-to hairstyles right now. They take just a few minutes and make life so much easier. 


What kind of hairstyles do you prefer? Let me know what you think of these. 

XOXO,

Not sure the response I'd get for trying this, but my hair is long enough, lol.

That is SO cute... I'm gonna try it today! Thanks for the idea. I'm always looking for things to do with my long hair.

I'm like you; I usually wear my hair down except when I run or am doing yard work. Then, I either braid my hair to the side or pull it up or back. Love the pics.
