SAVE IT, SISTER!

Tis the season of the updo. Prom, graduation and weddings are in full swing. When you’re getting ready and putting your hair up, you should always try to wear something that buttons or zips in the front to avoid pulling it over your head. However, sometimes you have a dress that has to be put on over your head after you do your hair. The best thing to do in this case is find fabric or a scarf, put it over your hair and tie it under your chin (similar to this image). This will significantly help keep your hair from getting caught on your dress, zipper or button.

SWISS MISS

We get asked to do braided hair styles all the time! One that we absolutely love for summer time is “The Milk Maid Braid”. It’s pretty and easy to do on yourself. This was Tabitha’s first time ever doing this and we think she did such an amazing job. You can create many versions of this: tight, loose, fishtail, add fabric, whatever you want! I like to pull loosen it up with a crochet hook, but you can also pull it apart with just your fingers! That’s the beauty of individual style. Get creative. This can be done on practically any hair type. If you have straight hair like Tabitha does, I suggest curling the ends of the hair so that they tuck in easier. Hair that has curl or texture does really well with this updo!
