Braided Topsy Tail

March 26, 2013
Like my glasses?  Check out Proof Eyewear. 

1.  Begin by sectioning out the hair from your ear forward on one side.
2.  On the same side, put the rest of your hair in a low, side ponytail.

3-5 - Turn the ponytail inside out by creating a hole at the base and pushing the end of the ponytail down through the hole.  

6.  Take the section you left out and braid it.

7.  Loosen the braid by pulling on small sections with your fingers, making it look messier.
8-9  Tuck the end of the braid down through the hole you created for your inside out ponytail.

 10 - Wrap the end of the braid around the elastic to hide it.  Secure the end with bobby pins.

Fresh Flower Tips

March 25, 2013
In case you haven't noticed, wearing fresh flowers in your hair is already a huge trend for weddings this year.  I can't lie, I love this trend and wish I would have done it for my wedding!  A few things to keep in mind if you are considering wearing fresh flowers -

1 -  Never, ever spray anything on your flowers.  No hairspray, no perfume, nothing!  These products will only cause your flowers to wilt.  Spray your hairspray, perfume or whatever else you have before you put your flowers in.
2 - If you aren't have a floral accessory made by your florist, bring a glue gun and some hair clips to make a last minute hair accessory on your own.  
3- When cutting your flowers, leave some of the stem attached to make it easier to stick them in your hair or attach them to a hair clip. 
4-  To help keep them fresh, put in your flowers right before your ceremony begins.  Keep them in water in the refrigerator until you put them in.
