#Molly3 #Fishbone #Braid

#Molly3 #Fishbone #Braid

I love braids.  And it's a good thing too because they are everywhere!
I think the thing that is so intriguing about braids is their versatility.
Just scroll through Pinterest and you will be blown away
 with the millions of ways they can be done.  Seriously mind boggling!
So it was only fitting for Molly's last look in her ad's Trending theme to be a BRAID.

And I think this Fishbone Braid is perfect.

Love how you can see the ribbons of color weave through. 
Remember we still have the extensions in Molly's hair for thickness, hilites, and texture.
Here's the link if you missed it :  

Need a reminder of how to do a Fishbone Braid?
Click on this link for a quick and easy tutorial:
Just know it's from years ago.  I've got bangs.  My little girl is well....little.  LOL
Maybe I should update that tutorial??  Probably should.
Anyway, back to present day.
Check out these cute pics of Molly's Trending braid.

Notice you can't see the elastic that is holding the braid.  
We took a piece from below the elastic and teased it.  Wrapping it around the elastic and tucking it in the back makes it disappear.  
Lastly, we used a working spray for softness.

Super Cute * Super Different * Super Trendy
Big thanks to Molly for always being such a JOY!!!
And a huge THANKS to Sarah for lending her photog skills.

Whatcha think?  Any of the four looks stand out as your favorite?

#Molly2 #HalfUp #HalfDown


#HalfUp #HalfDown

Hopefully you read my previous post, Now Trending : #MOLLY 
so you have already met my sweet friend.
Sponsoring Molly for her high school Scholarship Pageant has been so much fun.
And I think the "Trending" theme has been perfect. 
With our next look we did a super popular and timeless half up half down.                        

So to give it some real boom pow we worked with the golden extensions that we had previously put in her hair.  This gives tons of Oomph to work with as well as adding a lot of texture to her final look. Separating off her crown section, we backcomb to give a base and lift.  Just a few push downs with the teasing comb does all you need.  Then pin this section at the base of the cushion
 (where you backcombed).


  Working on the right side, take her front section
 (leaving out a few soft strands) and pull it over the pinned cushion and secure.

Now is the fun part.  Take the hair from the left side (leaving a few, soft strands out here as well) and pull back towards the crown.  Braid this section.

Drape the braid over the cushion and pin!  
Make sure to tuck the ends under for a polished finish.


So there you have it, a unique new look for a half up half down.  It's timeless and romantic but can still be playful.  You could always take this to a more elegant look by simply curling the hair with big waves.  Brush it out with a dressing brush such as a Mason Pearson and you would have gorgeous glam.  

Hope you like this look!  Let me know what you think?
I've got a little more to show you from Molly's Trending day.  Hopefully these looks are "trendy" and "classic" at the same time because really the CLASSICS make the best TRENDS.
