~*Braided Pull Throughs*~

~*Braided Pull Throughs*~
I got these ADORABLE flower clips and a headband from Every Little Detail yesterday and couldn't wait to use them. I decided to use the Pink and Sparkly Green flower first. There is still a sale going on so get over there before its over! You don't wanna miss out on 20% off, just type in SpringFever20 in check out.

Okay, to do this just seperate the front hair into 3 sections, the top and the sides. Then braid the sides and split the top one into 2 and braid each one. Pull the rest of the hair into a low ponytail and make a lot of braids out of the ponytail hair leaving some of the ends unbraided.

Pull the ends of the ponytail braids under and through making sure it comes through the very middle top of the ponytail and then twist the seperate braids around the ponytail and secure with an elastic on top.
So now you have the 2 layers of hair, hold it straight up and back brush it and curls under a little. Then add your bow or flower like the one I got from Every Little Detail and your set! Here is the finished do'

Once again-sorry about the crappy dark pictures. I will hopefully be getting a new camera soon :)
Thank you very much, Jessica!

Upcoming Renaissance Festival!

So it is that time of year again! The Ren Fest has started and my daughter and I are going next month. So I am going to try to get some new Renaissance Hairstyles up before then.

We have been going to the Arizona Renaissance Faire since Chelina was in Kindergarten. It's always fun to spend the day there. So much artistry and creativity to enjoy! It always give's me a lot of  inspiration for hair styles.

Besides, it's nice to take a break from the present reality and take a step back in time. Can't always take life too seriously lol.

So check back with us to see the pic's. I know I have been slow moving on my return but I recently started a Instagram account for the blog to give me more motivation lol. All the talented Hair Artist give me motivation and inspiration to get my tail in gear!

Valentine's Day Braided Heart

Hey everyone! It has taken me a while to even get one thing up. My daughter thinks she is too cool to have her hair done so now I have no model lol. I may have to enlist the use of bribery or just buy a mannequin that doesn't look like it has lost half it's hair lol. So I apologize but this is what I have for now. I will get something better up soon. She has to sleep sometime hehehe, jk!

For Valentine's Day I did a Braided Heart for my sister. It ended up being a rushed thing but I think it looked good considering. Her and her fiance were going out to dinner and she wanted something festive. Here is the pic.

Thank's for checking us out! Hope you had a nice Valentine's Day and always find a reason to show love <3 .="" p="">

Twist's & Flower's

♥~Twists & Flower's~♥
Well, I had to think of a pre-Easter hairdo for Chelina for the Easter Egg Hunt tomorrow sooo I combined these. I think it is cute and could be used for Easter as well.

I started out by sectioning off a circle around the head and the middle I put into a pony and clipped out of the way. Then I sectioned out 9 boxes around the head (the outer circle) and put each one in an elastic. Then I split those in half and connected each half with the one beside it and made the twist. I did this all the way around and put another elastic around to secure it with the pony. I then made the flower as I showed in the other blog I posted.

There you have it...a cute style for formal or informal days :) Here are the pics.

☆ Knotted and Twisted☆
This is a very cute style and VERY easy to do! One thing is, you have to be working with at least semi long hair cause it shortens it a lot! As you can see in the picture, it shortens my daughter's hair to shoulder length and her hair is waist length.

So basically what I did was I separated the hair for piggies and pulled the bangs back into a little poof, secured by an elastic ( make sure you use gel when doing this). Then I took a small amount of hair right below where the left piggy is and put the rest into the pig tails. Then the small amount of hair, I twist braided and attached it to the right side piggy.

Then I took the hair from the left piggy and separated into two and tied. Then I switched the pieces that were in my hands and tied again. I did this tie and switch the whole way down until there was just this tiny bit of hair left. Switching hands makes it so you don't end up with one side longer then the other. Then I did the same with the right side and I was all done.
Here are the rest of the views below. Also, please if you can read my last post called Death in the Family I am trying to help my cousin get donations for funeral expenses. Anything you can donate would be wonderful! Thank you in advance!

Halloween Makeup 2015

I know this is late but I wanted to share some pictures from Halloween. I did makeup for my daughter, my sister, her fiance and myself. My sister and her fiance and me did a Voodoo theme. I was the Voodoo Priestess, my sister was a Voodoo Doll and her fiance was Papa Legba. My daughter was going to be a Voodoo doll as well but she decided to be a Broken Evil Doll instead. It was a good night but it makes me sad that holidays aren't what they used to be. I miss when almost all the houses in the neighborhood had decorations all over. Now sometimes you can't even tell it is a holiday. 

Holiday's are a magical time for kid's and we are taking that away. Kid's need more magic in their youth and less crappy stuff! No matter what I have gone through I have always made sure holidays were good for my daughter. So come on people get it together and stop being selfish! Ok, my rant is done lol. 

Here are our Halloween Pictures.

Hope You Had A Spooktakular Halloween!
