I don't know about you guys but it seems hair is everywhere these days. I would have to say that every 7th pin on Pinterest is about Hair! I have a head FULL of it so I enjoy all the amazing do's - quite inspirational. But who really does all these things? I am proud to say that I try to not do the mom "ponytail" all the time, but let's be realistic. So I figured I would give one these hairstyles I've pinned a try. So, have you guys seen the waterfall braid?
It's really beautiful. I thought this one would be similar to my do since her hair type is kinda wavy like mine. So, I just got back from trying it out. My arms are pretty tired cause I had to do it twice. I figured mine would come out looking like that cookie monster cupcake fail that is soooo hilarious.
So here is my attempt. And I must say I am NOT an exceptional braider.
|1st try. It does not look like picture above. haha You also have to switch hands 3 times for each side which was hard.|
|The front view. Like my sticky note in my bathroom? :) I just braided down the end.|
|2nd attempt. Definitely better but a little crooked & my arms are tired.|
|Not quite as hard but I am not sure that mine is quite right either. I pinned up the fallen side and the just did a messy bun at the bottom.|
|Here's the back. Sorry for the poor lighting.|
I have to say not too bad but not a do in a hurry either! And mine definitely doesn't look like the photo. I will have to try again some other time. I have to share my favorite hair things with you though that ARE EASY. To finish off my bun - I have these little metal spiral doodads that are my GO TO all the time!
You can get these just about anywhere. I got mine at Target. Super cheap too. You can do all these do's with pretty much no bobby pins. Sometimes I use just a couple for fly aways. It's so fast & it doesn't pull & hurt either.
Here are some hairstyles that are my regular ones with these genius little spiral pins. I do have naturally curly hair so you will have to let me know how they are on straight or fine hair.
|I got these hairstyles on a google image search for buns & up do's for long hair. The middle row, one to the far left is called the Gibson bun. I like to do that one with two barrettes low in my hair at about my ears. |
It helps keep it tidy looking.
