BRAIDED PONYTAIL

TGIF guys!! This week has been pretty brutal for Eric and I. He hasn't been getting done with work until 11 o'clock, sometimes waking up at 6 to finish. To say that I am looking forward to some quality time this weekend is an understatement. We haven't planned out what we will be doing, but the weather calls for lower 80's so obviously water will be involved. I guess this is the Summer that doesn't want to end!

Moving on to hair!! I got this hairspiration from the lovely Barefoot Blonde. I'm telling you, the things that girl can do with her hair is unbelievable. Thinking I need to get my hair some extensions ASAP! A few simple tips to recreate this look can be found below! Would you rock this hairstyle? What look do you want me to try next? Leave your suggestions in the comment section below!


To Create
step one: Brush through hair and part down the middle. Grab a small section on the right side and start french braiding in a backwards motion and tie off. Use fingers to loosen braids. Repeat on the left side.
step TWO: Connect two braids loosely in back, connect with a small elastic.
step three: Gather rest of hair to the back, integrating the hair from braids, and create a simple braid down. Secure with hair tie.

  2. TJ, I feel you on that! For some reason this whole week was off for me as well. So busy! I am so ready for this weekend, but am hoping it doesn't fly by too quickly!

    I hope whatever you guys do this weekend, you have some fun and can relax a little! It's pretty cold here in OH for the next couple of days! Hope it cools down for you!

  29. I feel you on the late night working spouses...my husband owns his business and will be in there making signs until 2 AM sometimes. :/ It stinks, but at the same time I enjoy my alone time (read: bubble baths, home pedis and reading).

  30. Nice hairstyle! I should be more adventurous with how I wear my hair.
