tutorial: favorite braid

November 11th, 2011

So besides how adorable Calvin is in the photo below, I really love this hairstyle!

This is basically my go-to for any day where I want my hair out of my face, but I don’t really want to spend a lot of time on it.  I actually wore it for a day of New York Fashion Week, in part because braids are basically the most stylish hairstyle you can actually create yourself at home!

I could try to describe how to do this braid, but the easiest way to do it yourself it just to watch the video!  And if you guys try this, make sure to send me pictures — I can’t wait to see them!

Also, I know this is silly, but today is 11/11/11!  Be sure to make a wish.  🙂 I know I’m silly and superstitious, but who could pass up a day like that as an opportunity?!  I wish for a zillion million dollars.  And world peace. 

(Just kidding — obviously, if I told you guys, it wouldn’t come true!  But world peace wouldn’t be SO bad…)

    loving this hairstyle! i will give it a go & try to take a decent picture!

    i’ve never heard of this making a wish thing until i read it on a few blogs this morning! it’s a nice idea, i think i might give it a try 🙂
    (here in the UK, 11/11/11 is Rememberance Day because the armistice agreement was signed, apparently at 11am in the morning..)

    Somehow not working for my (heavily) layered hair. Any suggestions? I’ll play with it and send you pics of what i come up with – it seems to be a super-cute style if I could just get all the little bits to stay put!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.
