small hair ties once a year and that lasts me for simple hair styles throughout the year. I am also quite fanatical about using snagless hair ties, I don't want the metal on my hair. There are so many great snagless alternatives now that it's a piece of cake. On the topic of cake, I'm looking forward to some tonight since it's my beautiful sister-in-law's birthday. You might remember her wedding which took place in April. Click here for part 1 / part 2 / part 3.
After plaiting my hair I roughed each section up to make it a little looser to create the illusion of fuller and thicker hair. My hair is very fine so I like to use volume powder or mousse to get an added texture. I then simply lifted each braid up to the crown of my head and secured it with a couple of bobby pins.
It was so easy and I really like the result. It's a really cute up-do and the less perfect it is, the better it looks. It did feel a little tight though so I loosened the braids a little. It was almost like I got a reverse facelift.
Heidi in the Alps books when I was little and I loved learning about how it was growing up in the alps. Divine books and it reminds me of our beautiful trip to Zermatt in Switzerland two years ago. I would love to go back there in winter to check it out. Who am I kidding, I would love to go back there anytime!
