Ok Moms... Who of you has time to wash, dry, and style their hair every morning? Those of you lucky to be able to pull off a short bob hair style, yay! But if you're like me, with no guts to just let it go, we have our daily styles. All depending on what wash day you're in. Ha ha, yes, I said wash day. I don't need to wash my hair every day. Really no one should. There are several articles proving that it isn't good for your hair to wash it every day. So I have "wash day styles". Day 1- fresh flat ironed curled under. Day 2- sides pinned back out of my face. Day 3- half up bun with a few pins. Day 4- some type of braid. Day 5- Different braid or mommy bun.
Let's get real... I'm in a mommy bun by 4pm most days
Like my wing liner series, Ill give you a braid series as well. The first one is my favorite. The Dutch braid.
Part your hair on whichever side you are comfortable with. I always choose a deep part to make the braid a lottle mor dramatic.
A dutch braid could also be called an inside out braid, pulling the strand under instead of over. still keeping the pulling in of new pieces into each new cross under.
Follow the hair line down and over the back of your ear. This is when I band the braid and prep the rest of your hair to be pulled off to the side and braided in.
Band off the hair at the bottom. With one hand, hold the end of the braid. With the other hand, lightly pull small pieces of each cross under out a bit. It'll make the braid look looser and more relaxed.
Sometimes I am not as careful while braiding and will simply take a few bobby pins and smooth down those sharkies. But sometimes the messy parts are the best!
Any hair styles you have been wanting a tutorial on? Leave them in the comments below, and Id love to give them a go for you!!
