"Crossing Lace Braids or X Braids"

Hi Everyone!! How's your weekend?

I saw another hairstyle from my fave hair bloggers. This is called the "CROSSING LACE BRAIDS" or the "X-BRAIDS". It is simply 2 dutch lace braids (or any kind of braids) that crosses at the center.

Well, this is how it turned out on my daughter's hair after I've done it:

As you can see on the side view of this hairstyle, i did a dutch braid on the 2 top parts on each side, crossing them to the other side of the bottom part of the hair. 

When you get to the bottom half part this is where you do the lace braid, wherein you only take hair or add hair from the top. 

It kinda looked a bit different from the original, i guess because i braided her hair a bit tight or near the scalp. The trick here is to make the braids a little bit loose to make the lace braid look kind of flowing. 

Thanks for reading. Until next time! Happy hair styling everyone!

Lots of Love,

Tuesday's Hair - Mohawk Anyone??

Hi everyone!! How are you all doing?

Whew!! It's super hot now here in the Philippines!!
Summer time!! 

Since it's very hot here, and my daughter has long hair, she wanted to always have her hair up in a ponytail. Just to keep it away from her face & neck.

So i started looking at these 4 hair blogs i follow for some nice updo hair styles. There were lots of them! And because i was running out of time i need something quick. Finally i saw one at Mindy's blog and it's called the "BUN-HAWK" a cute version of the Mohawk (w/c is originally worn by men) It is also called the "BANTU KNOTS". This was such a cute idea & very easy to do!

the "Bun-Hawk"
Mindy's hair blog "CuteGirlsHairstyles" is very famous now in the US. Even her FB page is famous. She & her family (dad & kids) were invited on Anderson Cooper's TV show to do hairstyling. Though, we don't have that channel here in the Philippines, I'm waiting for it on YouTube. They have been on many TV shows in the US.

Going back to the hairstyle, as i said, it was very easy to do. You just have to part your daughter's hair into 5 pony tails. You can make the parting equally or you can do it like small pony to big pony. Then each ponytail, you grab the hair and twist it. Keep twisting till it curls up then you can now make a bun. Secure them with elastic bands & bobby pins. Here is our finished product:

the "Bun-Hawk"

As you can see i started the bottom ponytail smaller and as it goes up it gets bigger. But, like i said you can do your ponytails equally/same amount of hair.

I took some more pics and here they are:

she feels like a rock star!!

By the way, the top she is wearing is from SM KIDS (SM is like one of the many popular malls here in the Philippines). It's like a Lady Gaga inspired top, with all the big bows and ruffles on the sleeves:

My daughter really loved this hairstyle!! The pictures tell it all!!

She likes it so much! Love the butterfly earrings too
Rock on!! yeah!
the top is like Lady Gaga's outfit
So that's it my friends! Our Tuesday hair....good to wear on these hot summer days! When we go swimming, she will definitely have these hairstyle.

So long for now! God bless you all! And thank you Mindy!!

Lots of Love,

"Happy Easter 2013 - Our Easter Hairstyles"

HAPPY EASTER to all of our readers, followers & to our fave hair bloggers!!

How was your "Easter Egg Hunting" adventures?? Well, me & my daughter already had our egg hunting weeks before. You can read about our "Pre-Easter Egg Hunting" fun by clicking this link: "IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER TIME!"

Anyway, here is our "Easter Hairstyle" for this year 2013. We call it the "4-STRAND ACCENT BRAIDS"

I have seen these hairstyle in almost all of my favorite hair bloggers. There are also different versions of this one and it is pretty easy to do once you mastered doing the 4-strand simple braids.

This is just what my daughter wore for the day at home. Here are some more pics of this hairstyle:

A closer look at the braids

Side view of the hairstyle
It's a simple 4 strand braiding technique. The 4th strand you just have to make into a simple braid first to have that "accent" effect when you do this braid. 

You can also use a ribbon instead as your 4th strand "4-STRAND RIBBON BRAID". That was what we used for Easter last year. Here's the pic of the 4-strand ribbon hairstyle:

So which one did you like best?? Whatever hairstyle you pick to wear on this day, I hope you all had a great and fun Easter.   And don't forget the main reason we are celebrating it is because our Lord has risen again!

Until next time!!

Lots of Love,
