Howdy:) Day two of my festival hair week is actually covering two things that I've been getting requests for a lot lately - basic braids that look age appropriate and not like you're trying to be a kid.haha and also braids that you can wear fun hats with! These particular braids have a more rustic finished look, but the method is the same and I'm excited to finally be putting out a little tutorial for you guys:)
One last thing before starting, remember that keeping them loose while you braid will help them not look so 'american indian', and never starting the braiding higher than your shoulders is what keeps them looking mature and a little more sophisticated. Okay lets get going!
- two hair-ties or elastics
Notes: If you already have texture in your hair then leave out the dry shampoo otherwise spray a bit on for some grip. If you have silky or fine hair(like me!) then you'll want to include some hairspray to help the braids hold in place longer:)
One last exciting thing before I finish up: Noonday Collection, the inspiring company that sells the necklace I'm wearing here, has graciously offered to give one away to you guys! I really love the mission behind Noonday Collection and each beautifully handmade piece that they sell. This necklace for instance is called the 'Modern Angles Necklace' and it was handmade by artisans in Ethiopia from up-cycled metal and artillery. "These remnants of former weapons of conflict are new beautiful pieces of redemption. The women who make these pieces are HIV positive and they are proud to say they are no longer defined by their disease. If you want a deeper glimpse into the Noonday Collection artisans, here is a link to our Website." I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to work with Noonday Collection, I love knowing that my necklace has a history and so much meaning, and I'm so excited one of you will win one for yourselves, so lets get to it!
