new hair-do - waterfall braid.

Yesterday, I got a great idea from the lovely Kim Barrett's blog, "Grin and Barrett". She posted about a hair style called the "waterfall braid".



As my hair is getting much longer, I have been playing around with different hairstyles. I have a lottt of hair, so when I wear it completely down it gets flat easily because there's a lot more hair then there has been, so half up styles, braids, and bobby pins have been frequenting my life. When I saw this braid, I knew I had to try it. So I did. Here are the results.




It wasn't the best because it was my first time, but I think it turned out nicely. I loved how it kept my hair back, but wasn't too tight because you let the hair continue to cascade down rather than putting it all into a french braid. It would be great to practice enough to be able to do it around the back like the picture, but I definitely couldn't get that far yet. But if I can do it at all, then anyone can. Here is the video tutorial:



I'd love to try it like this someday - with curls and putting a couple flower pins in to hold it in place.


Happy braiding! Let me know if you try it!

  9. Hey Ashley, I'm wondering...how do you dye your hair blonde? Do you just highlight it, or dye all of it? Do you use an actual color, or is it bleach?
