I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I love the color blue. It has been my favorite color since I was a little girl and till this day, I still love it.

Braided Hairstyles

I’ve always loved braids and cute braided hairstyles. There’s something truly feminine, girly and elegant about them and even though I’ve never been quite good at doing braids, I like looking at tutorials and experimenting with my hair. Have you every seen a hair tutorial online that looks amazing but it just doesn’t work for your hair? I think we all have.

after clip in hair extensions

Many years ago I had glue-in hair extensions, and I loved it. Having long hair completely changed my appearance to a more girly, feminine look (here is an old photo of me with black hair+hair extensions). Glue in hair extensions were great because they stayed in my hair for at least 3-4 months. The downside was having to go to a salon that would put them on for me and then take them out when my hair grew. Even though I loved my…
