Dutch Girl Braid

So a fun fact is I love braids. I love any kind of braid. I search Pinterest and I am always looking for fun braids to try! I know how to French braid my own hair and to fishtail my own hair, but I don’t know how to Dutch braid… yet.

My friend Dutch braided my hair and I have to say I love the Dutch braid style. It’s amazing and I love how it looks with my balayage hair color too! It’s the perfect spring/summer braid and it’s perfect for when I go out or go to work or am on location at a video or photoshoot.
This hairstyle is my new favorite look.

Boho Braids

It’s all about Boho this summer and what better way to be boho than with some braids! I came across this amazing tutorial and I had to share it with all of you! The braids are so simple and easy to do and give you that instant boho feel!

I did the first braid in the tutorial and it turned out amazing and looked perfect with my new maxi for summertime! You can even add in a beaded headpiece to give it a boho twist!

Which braid is your favorite?! Are you loving the boho trend?!

French Braid Updo

The other day I was so excited to do a photoshoot for gown with Original Piece! It started raining right the when photoshoot was to begin (and it was an outdoor photoshoot), but luckily it stopped an hour later!

I didn’t have much time for hair and makeup, so the hairstylist and makeup artist did a quick French Braid undo. Literally I think it only took about 10 minutes for her to do this look and I absolutely loved it! I got so many compliments and it paired perfect with all the gowns they had!
To do the updo it’s really simple. All you have to do is do two French braids and then simply pin them up with bobby pins!

Waterfall Braid for Summer

I’ve been looking for the perfect hairstyle to wear at the beach. If your like me in the summer you hate having your hair in your face especially at the beach when it’s so hot out.


I discovered the waterfall braid and how I can easily do it in the front of my hair to pull back those strands. I put the rest of my hair in a simple ponytail and I love the look for the beach! After the beach or a day out in the sun you can simply take the ponytail part down and your instantly trendy for summer!

My New Fall Look

So today I went to the hair salon and had to change up my look because fall is here!

I had about 4 inches cut off and added layers around which I have to say I love it! My hair was one length and for those of you who have long hair you know how hard styling it can be, especially when your hair is thick, which mine is!
I added in more ombre highlights and got a few statement platinum pieces added, which I love! I’m so glad I got it done!
The added curls were a plus for the look! I love how the curly and everything turned out! Now it’s time to see if I can curl my hair just as good as she did!
What do you all think of my hair for fall?
