+ Looking FANCY in a hurry! Use a braided pony tail or braided head band with optional chignon

If you are running out the door to something you want to look cute at, but don’t have the time….try one of these! The braided high pony tail, the braided head band or the braided headband with chignon. This is great too if you don’t know how to french braid…easy and takes a few minutes. Or you can try one of these buns

Put into high pony tail, leave a little out from underneath, braid it, secure with clear band on bottom, twist the little piece around top band and secure with bobby pin. 
Braid a small piece from behind the ear, wrap over head and pin near other ear, repeat with other side.
Follow instructions from above, take hair and twist at the lower back of the head loosely, and pin. OR you can use do this with a bun…like one of these.

  15. you have to coolest blog ever!! can’t wait to continue following. :)

  16. looks very cuty. damn i hate my middle long hairs-_-


  17. I love your toutorials! I’m always wishing I knew how to “do” my long hair, and your posts are a great place to get ideas and not be intimidated.

  18. I never have much luck with doing my hair but I’m doing to try the braided “headband” because it looks so cute! Thanks for the tutorial :)

  19. Wow, you have amazing hair! I just found your blog via Giverslog, and I love it so far! I have super-fine hair that I’m trying to grow longer. It’s hard for me to do last minute classy, because if my hair is looking flat that day, there’s not much I can do with it to make it look nice. But I’m working on trying to figure it out! One thing that works sometimes for fine hair is a quick french twist. It’s easy in my hair because I only need a few pins to secure it (since it’s fine and thin and light)

  20. Pretty! This was an extremely wonderful post. Thanks for supplying these details.

  21. It’s difficult to find well-informed people for this subject, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  22. There is certainly a lot to find out about this topic. I love all the points you made.

  23. Spot on with this write-up, I truly feel this amazing site needs a lot more attention. I’ll probably be returning to see more, thanks for the advice!

  24. Next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t fail me as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, nonetheless I actually thought you would probably have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you can fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

  26. I like it whenever people come together and share views. Great website, keep it up!
