NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Double Halo Braids

I'm going to get the ball rolling this morning with a warning: you will be sick of seeing this hairstyle by the the time April is out. Outfit photos and videos have all been shot with the double halo braid on my head - so sorry not sorry in advance on that one. Everyones seen a halo braid before so this is nothing new, but I thought I'd pop up some photos today as I realised over the past weekend that, with my mid length-y/growing out locks, I'd have to get a little creative if I wanted to actually pull off halo braids on myself. 

Anyone with shorter hair will know that one braid on each side just wont even reach the top - especially without shorter layers poking out left right and centre. So I decided to split my hair into four parts. Front sections and back sections. Doing this allows me to get the full looping over of the braids at the front, but still keeps the shape at the back of the head that the rear braids create. The braids at the back only just meet - so I made sure I had a fair few hair pins in a colour that matches my hair to keep them in place. If you want to see a tutorial then just shout and I'll put together a little something for ya!

There are more photos in Tuesdays outfit post (link here), but you kinda get the gist. If you've got shorter (not too heavily layered) hair, double it up ladies! It's definitely helping me get through the "growing out blues". Did I mention I'm on a hair growing marathon again? More on that next week...

  20. My hair is medium-short length right now (and layered) and I'm currently try to grow it back out (I used to have really long hair, and now I'm seriously missing it). Anyway, I try all the time to braid my hair now and small pieces are constantly sticking out this way and that! I'd LOVE to see a tutorial for this style! Thank you!!

  38. I love this look on you! Especially the pieces that frame your face--I have super long hair which I don't think would suit letting pieces out but this has inspired me to play around a bit!

  52. I'd love to see a tutorial of this! I have in between length (and rather fine) hair which I love and hate with equal measure as it's so hard to find fun up-do's that aren't just a donut bun!
