Easiest 5 Strand Braid Hair Tutorial

I'm not even exaggerating that this tutorial is the easiest five strand braid tutorial. What I love about the look I've created is that you only weave hair from one side of the head instead of both so it works beautifully for beginners. After you braid the hair, I give it a little twist so that it helps the hair have a tad bit of volume.

Don't believe me that its a super easy five strand braid hair tutorial? Then watch the below video to see for yourself. I also have to give my girl Claire with Beauty and a Bargain.com for loaning her gorgeous locks for me to braid. If you guys like fashion on a budget, make sure to check out her blog right HERE.


GHD Flat Iron limited edition Review

You guys! I'm dying over the new ghd limited edition flat iron in Lagoon. The colors are so amazing and rich. This special edition is a 1inch ceramic flat iron with advanced ceramic heat technologies which helps with enhanced shine and smoothness. The little things always gets me excited and I love how this iron comes with a heat safe mat, has a sleep mode that switches off on its on after 30 minutes (perfect for inside the salon)  and it has swivel cord which allows me to create gorgeous flat iron waves like I have in the above photo.

ghd is definitely top of the line, and is currently my flat iron of choice inside the salon when I'm creating the ever so popular flat iron waves on my clients that is all the rage right now. These retail for $225 but defiantly worth the investment. They even come with a 2year warranty. I'm a true believe of you get what you pay for, and this iron my friend you are getting well worth your money.


Faux Fringe with Top Bun

Faux Fringe with top bun hair tutorial is on the menu for today! This is the perfect style for my friends that want to give a fringe a shot with out the commitment. The faux fringe style is just that, a faux fringe from the hair that you put in your top knot and swoops across your forehead. This style can be worn for several occasions including dressy, formal or for a causal day out.

This hairstyle was done on blogger friend Claire with Beauty and a Bargain. If you don't follow her already, make sure you do because she is pretty amazing. Claire has really long hair so this style worked out beautifully. If your hair is shorter, don't be discouraged because you can rock it to. You bun might just be a tad smaller than Claires.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and if you love it make sure to give it a big thumbs up and Subscribe to both of my YouTube channels HERE and HERE.

Easy Side Knot Updo

Todays hair tutorial video is on the side knot updo. The easy side knot updo can easily be worn casually or dressed up with a nice dress and some fun earrings. I just love this knotted updo look because is chic and very different so you will be sure to turn heads. Basically for this look you bring all the hair to one side and by utilizing a simple knot technique you can create a fun up style.

Watch my below YouTube hair tutorial on how you can achieve this look in minutes and if you love it, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and give this hairstyle a big thumbs up.
