If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm kind of obsessed with braids. They're such an easy way to spice up a Plain-Jane hairdo! Today, I started by french-braiding all of my hair (including my bangs) from my natural part on the left side of my head. I braided around to the back like this:
Then I repeated it on the other side. (Loose braids, girls, loose! We don't want to look like we're 5 and our mom did our hair for us!) Where the braids met in the back, I threw my hair in a ponytail:
Next I made it all messy and made it into a bun:
And then I was done! Can you tell I've had a couple of rough mornings? It's written all over my exhausted face. Haha!
And now for.... THE GIVEAWAY!!!! Yay! Thank you guys so much for making this happen! So, this week's giveaway is... A collection of styling products from Rusk!
Here's what we've got:
Blofoam: this is a root lifter. You put it in your hair at the roots while wet, then blow-dry it. For maximum volume, you'll want to blow-dry upside down or directing your hair the opposite way you're eventually going to style it. Does that make sense? I hope so.
W8less Plus: This is an extra-firm hold hairspray. It's an aerosol (which, by the way, is really the only hairspray to use. I only use the old liquid hairsprays with pumps for one thing; getting ink out of clothes. I'm aware of how un-envrionmentally friendly I am) and it has, well, and extra-firm hold!
Being Undressed: Okay, perhaps not the most appropriate of names, but it's seriously a great product! I use it when I do french braids to help keep the flyaways down. It's also a good pomade for boys' hair (you're welcome, Zac).
