    Wow, you are so gorgeous but I love the self-deprecating facial expressions. Just out of curiosity, do you color your hair? It looks natural but unbelievably pretty & matches your eyebrows. Also wondering if the pictures are airbrushed because your skin is flawless! Unfairly flawless :-) I swear, I’m not trying to sound like I ‘m having a girl crush. I was just blown away & in the rare mood to post it.

    P.S. BTW, #4 is my favorite. I’m going to do my daughters hair like that for her school pictures

      Hi Jamie, Thank you! I highlight my hair with golden blonde and white blonde highlights. I also dye my eyebrows medium ash brown.

    I don’t understand the difference between a late braid and a French braid?

    • July 6, 2014 / 6:45 PM

      Oops! Lace *

      A french braid has hair pulled in on both sides while a lace braid only has hair pulled in on one side.
