The Impromptu Braided Headband

Today I decided to try making an impromptu braided headband. This style was created on the fly for demonstration purposes, but it can be smoothed out and made more presentable. This is a fun hairdo to try when you want to pull part of your hair up, but leave most of it down since it keeps the tresses of the face.

Playing around with photo editing software I made it appear as if I was holding a large hollyhock. Here I am wearing an impromptu braided headband, which it two accent braids wrapped around the head and pinned up.

Braiding Long Hair

I like to create a simple braided hairstyle many days of the week.

I felt like after yesterday I might not do any more long hair videos for awhile, but I just decided I wanted to do more of the kinds I like. In today’s video, I demonstrate how I create a simple ponytail braid. I have been washing my hair only two or three times a week, and I find that ponytails hold better the second day after washing. I am also interested some of the talk around the web about how some people only wash their hair with conditioner, which I might try, but I think I will still always want to use shampoo. Pro-conditioner people swear their hair is far more manageable only washing with this toiletries.

Here is a slideshow illustrating the completed braid. This day I wore a black sweater and a pencil skirt along with the plait.
