Braided Updo

can I just say, 
I'm loving having my baby sister here in Jamaica!
lots of good, real belly laughs

My sisters are gorgous, dharlings!  
I love their style.  I miss borrowing their clothes!

I thought it would be fun to "make" my sister do a couple of 
feminine girly posts while she's here.  
This braided updo is cute, stylish and fast. 

Meet Monica Grace. 
"She is my favorite out of all my sisters because she is the 
                                prettiest, sweetest, most amazing person
 I could ever ask for in a sister." {last part wrote by Monica}

Sisters are the BEST! Very nice hairdo...and you're right she is beautiful!

So pretty! And it helps to begin with a beautiful (and so modest, of course) face. Looks like fun! Soak in that sister time!

Bethany said...

Thanks! I gotta try it!

I love how you said that it's quick. To me, anything past a ponytail or messy bun isn't quick. But you made me realize, you know, it's not like I'm "REALLY" crunched for time at every moment. I've got time to do a cute doo!

Thanks again! So cute!

It looks fantastic. My hair have gotten so long and I'm getting really bored with pony tails!!! I've been looking for some ideas how to change my hair but not cut them (as my husband would hate that)! I'm used to have short hair, but since we're married I keep them long...

Sachiko said...

Very pretty I love the look so much!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

What a great look! Your sister is so pretty and this hair style suits her! I would love to try something other than just twisting up my hair and using a butterfly clip. Sometimes I do the first portion of her instructions, but leave the back down, so I should just try the braiding part. Of course, mine will probably turn out looking like some horrible bird's nest! Thanks for the tute!

Kristen said...

What a great style! I'm going to a wedding soon and have been on the lookout for an easy but beautiful updo....I'm off to practice in the mirror right now!

Thanks for sharing!
