French Rope Braided Up-do

July 25, 2017


Red Dress: Here / Gold Necklace: Here

I recently picked up this beautiful red dress for an upcoming wedding, and as soon as I put it on I instantly wanted to create an up-do to pair with it. I decided to go with this French Rope Braided Up-do since it’s so simple to do, and can be worn sleek and formal, or more undone and casual. For the wedding I will probably wear my hair down, I’m thinking possibly old hollywood curls all pulled to one side, what do you think (tutorial here)?

Also, I have brainstormed a lot of new content ideas for my channel and blog, I am so excited to share with you a more personal side of me, and my hobbies and interests. I love creating hair tutorials and will continue to do so, but I also love spending time outdoors, hiking, biking, and adventuring and I so badly want to share those experiences with you. Let me know if you have any suggestions of content you would like to see.

If you’re someone who loves simple hairstyles, and you consider throwing your hair in a pony-tail as you putting in effort, than this is the hair accessory for you. Adding ribbon to any hairstyle whether it’s a pony-tail, bun, or half-up hairdo, is the quickest way to transform a basic hairstyle into something special. I thought I would share with you 3 simple hairstyles incorporating ribbon, first is a Bridget Bardot inspired half-up hairstyle (my favourite), second is an effortless bun, and thirdly is a voluminous topsy tail. Such a simple way to elevate your everyday pony-tail so you can rock it to your next special event.

Let me know your thoughts on this, do you think ribbons are too girly? Or do you agree they’re a great way to personalize a hairstyle?

Are you guys ready to learn how to do the coolest braid ever? The DNA braid is THE braid for Summer, and I am so excited to share this hair tutorial. This braid was giving me serious Wonder Woman vibes, by the way have you guys seen the movie yet? Sadly I didn’t love it, but I am going to give it another chance because I am all for a strong female character, plus a female director, how badass is that? Okay back to the hair, so I know it looks difficult, and overwhelming, but I have simplified it into just 3 easy steps so you can recreate it yourself.

Let me know if you try it, and if your arms are as sore as mine afterwards. xo
