tried the braided bun a few weeks ago & fell in love. super chic & easy!


I am loving the first one! It looks so chic, not to mention easy.



I love these gorgeous up-do’s! Unfortunately, even with the step-by-step tutorials, I can never manage to recreate them :)


Yeah… it takes practice. I would say the easiest one is the pigtails knotted. Def worth a try!



These hairstyles are amazing! Can’t wait to try! ;)



These are great! Last night I was so fed up with my hair that I took out the few extensions I had in and am thinking of just chopping it off…
