1. Beginning on wavy hair, take a medium to large section close to your right ear.
2. Braid the section going from the front to the back.
3. Repeat on the opposite side.
4. Bring both braids to the back and secure them with an elastic.
5. Loosen and mess up both braids by pulling on them gently with your fingers.
6. Take one braid and wrap it up and around itself, creating a small braided bun. 
7. Secure with bobby pins.


Avett Brothers.  Amazing!

This week we have music from Sigur Ros and a giveaway from Threadsence.  The tutorial below was inspired by one of the looks from Threadsence's Untamed Lookbook.  Be sure to check it out!  


1 - Pick up a medium to large size section close to one ear.
2 - Wrap the section across the back of your head and bring it to the other side.
3 - Pick up another equally sized section close to your other ear.
4 - Bring the two sections together and secure them with an elastic right behind your ear.
5 - Take the ponytail and create a fishtail braid, securing the end with an elastic.
6 - Use your fingers to pull on sections of the braid, making it loose and messy.
7 - Finish by cutting the elastic at the base to remove it.


Sigur Ros is my all time favorite.  Lucky for me they are coming all the way from Iceland to the music festival I am going to!  Can't wait, and can't believe how good they sound live in this video.

Music Festival Series #1 - Messy Twist


April 1, 2013
Today marks the beginning of my Music Festival Series!  In case you missed my last post about it, I will be going to my first music festival this year in Washington (Sasquatch Music Festival).  I am so excited about this festival that I came up with this series of tutorials, music, and giveaways, all surrounding the idea of the music festival scene.
 Get ready for some awesome tutorials, giveaways, and music this month!

First off, congrats to the winner of last week's Style Lately Giveaway, Katie Carton!
Please contact me within 48 hours to receive your prize!

The first "music festival" look I created is for a messy twist, plus to go along with it I'm going to share some of my favorite music from The Tallest Man on Earth, and you won't want to miss the giveaway from Pixie Market.
Check it all out below!


1-  Beginning on wavy or second day hair, sweep all of your hair over one shoulder.  
2-  Starting off your part, take a medium size section and split it in half.
3-  Take the front piece and cross it over the back piece, bringing the back piece to the front.
4-  Add a new section of hair to the new front piece, making it thicker.
5-  Now cross the pieces again, taking the front piece over and the back piece under.
6-  Continue this process of twisting the sections and adding hair down your hairline, creating a twist braid.  
7-  As you braid down be sure to keep the braid close to your face, resting near your hairline.  As you get past your ear start taking bigger sections.
8-  Finish with a normal twist braid.
9-  Secure the end with a clear elastic.
10-Finish by gently pulling on small sections to loosen the braid and make it messier.

You probably guessed that I am a huge music lover from the fact that I am going to a music festival this year.
The Tallest Man on Earth is one of my favorite musicians.  If you like folk music, you will fall in love with this Swedish man.  Watch, and enjoy!
