4 Strand Braid

Here's the 4 strand braid tutorial.  Check it out, it's like a 3D braid!

Braids: 2 Strands, 3 Strands, 4 Strands, 7!

If you regularly watch my youtube channel you have probably already guessed that I love doing braids!  What's not to love?  They're heatless and they can brighten up a bad hair day.  I've decided to go a step further and explore the world of four-strand braiding.  The picture above shows a four-strand braid that I did earlier today and I am now in love with it!  It looks 3D!  At every single angle you can see the braid.  It never looks flat at all.  I might even bring my curiosity of more strands up to a seven-strand braid.  Stay tuned for more!

Violet Love Headbands Review Video

Violet Love Headbands byRebecca Michaels

Last month, my boyfriend and I went to Dallas for a trade show.  When we got there we met Rebecca Michaels and fell in love with her headbands.  My boyfriend now sells these headbands in his shop.

What I love about these headbands is that they are unique and come in many different colors and patterns.  You can also wear them big or small.  The She headbands are made specifically for working out.  I've worn them while running and they don't even budge.

For more information about Violet Love headbands visit  Here you can order headbands and other apparel, or you can use the store locator to find out where you can buy these headbands near you!
Stay tuned for a tutorial on Violet Love headbands on my youtube channel!

The Best "Second Day Hair" Products

Want a product that will make your hair look and smell awesome?  Want an easy fix for bad hair days?  TIGI has just come out with a brand new line of products that is perfect for fixing dirty and dull hair.  There's no need to wash your hair everyday with products like this!  For those readers who watch my videos often, you know that I try to find ways to create hairstyles out of "second day hair."  Second Day Hair:  Hair that has not been washed today, but still has the potential to look beautiful

Transforming Dry Shampoo
I love this because it removes oil on days that you don't wash your hair, plus it doesn't leave it looking dull like other dry shampoos!

Salt Spray
This product is unique and leaves your hair with tons of texture and volume.  Plus, you can spray it in wet or dry hair!

Work It Hairspray
This is perfect for when you want to put your second day hair in an up-do or an intricate style.  This hairspray will give maximum hold without getting flakey.

Finishing Hairspray
I really like this hairspray because I love having "touchable" hair.  This hairspray will give your style hold, but you will still be able to run your fingers through your hair.

Styling Cream
Add this product to wet hair to control frizz, or add to dry second day hair to maintain fly-aways.

True Wax
Turn your bad hair day into a bold and polished look while fighting against humidity!

Wet Look Gel
This gel gives a glossy wet look without making hair look greasy.

Hopefully the descriptions of TIGI's new products will help you find a product that you will love.  I just want all of my readers to know that I do not get paid to say that I love these new products.  I just do.
