Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the right side.
Step 2 / Divide out a section of hair on the heavy side of the part from the part line down to an inch behind the left ear and clip the forward hair out of the way.
Step 3 / Now pick up a small section, behind the forward section, for the first braid and divide it into three sections.
Step 4 / Begin a French braid crossing the right strand over the middle then the left strand over the middle.
Step 5 / Now cross the right strand over the middle, pick up a new section of hair and cross it into the middle strand.
Step 6 / Then cross the left strand over the middle, pick up a new section and cross it into the middle strand.
Step 7 / Repeat those steps continuing the french braid, crossing the side strands over the middle strand while adding in hair to both sides. *On the right side of the braid, bring in all of the hair from the right side of the head, sweeping it around the back of the head. and continue down towards the nape of the neck.
Step 8 / Once all of the hair from this section is brought into the braid, continue braiding the hair a little further down and tie off the end with an elastic band.
Step 9 / Let down the front section of hair, along the hair line, and begin a second french braid.
Step 10 / Begin the french braid by crossing the right strand over the middle then crossing the left strand over t he middle.
Step 11 / Then create two stitches of a french braid, adding in new sections on both sides of the braid.
Step 12 / Now continue the french braid but stop adding in sections on the right side of the braid and only bring in hair to the left side of the braid, from along the hairline.
Step 13 / Continue the braid down the left side of the head until all of the hair is brought into the braid.
Step 14 / Now braid the section a little further down and tie off the end with an elastic band.
Step 15 / Slide in bobby pins along the front braid to pin it against the head.
Step 16 / Then go back over the braid pulling on the edges, as well as the looped pieces in the braids, to make them wider.
Step 17 / Take the end of the first braid, wrap it around the bottom of the back braid and pin it underneath with a bobby pin.
Step 18 / Then go back over the bottom of the back braid and pull on the edges to make it wider and more full. Then set everything in place with hairspray.
If you recently saw my Lioness Halloween Hairstyle then today I’m excited to be sharing the makeup from that video.
I used a bunch of different shades to achieve this makeup look so if you’re new to makeup you could easily use one eyeshadow and finish with the liner. I think the real effect is bringing the black liner in towards the nose on the lower lash line along with the detailing around the nose and mouth.
Even if you don’t plan to dress up for Halloween, I hope you enjoy this tutorial. Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy
Who’s ready for another Halloween tutorial? There are so many costumes that focus on the makeup so for today’s video I wanted to create a hairstyle that matched the costume too.
Lions are the ‘King of the Jungle,’ right? What better way to make a crown for a Lioness than with a half up Dutch braid? I especially love the really tight curls and think they take the lion mane up a notch. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks so much for watching! xoxo, Missy
Here’s the makeup tutorial for the Galaxy Girl Glitter Buns that I recently posted.
I thought this makeup would be hard to recreate but it’s actually pretty simple if you take the time to blend it all out. The most difficult part was gluing the glitter to my skin because it kind of clumped up so I highly recommend using white paint or eyeliner to draw on the constellations.
Also, I wish I’d used some temporary pink or blue hair dye so consider that as an option if you decide to recreate this costume! Happy Haunting! Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy
Happy October! It’s already sweater weather around here and it actually makes me really nervous for winter, lol. I’ve been stocking up on sweaters and love the texture detail of this one. I bought it one size up so it’d fit a little looser and it’s sooo cozy!
Over the weekend my younger brother got married. It was a beautiful celebration and a ton of work but it was so fun to catch up with the relatives that came. I’m always the most grateful for family during these types of get-togethers.
My brother’s fiancé (now wife) asked me to do her hair. She wanted a simple, beautiful low bun and I loved the way it turned out. I wasn’t able to get any good pictures of it so maybe once she gets the pictures from the photographer, I’ll be able to get a copy of it.
