 About a year and a half ago, I did an Instagram post of my 'can't-french-braid braid' & I had a lot of requests for a tutorial. I did a pictorial, but I kept getting requests for a video so here we are... At the end I show how I use spin pins to make a messy bun! :) SO, this hair style is REALLY good if you A. have dirty hair B. are growing out bangs & they are at an awkward length or C. want to have an elegant hairstyle that can be done quickly if you have a special event or something coming up! (video is at the end of the post.)

PS. If you are new here, bear w/me on videos- I always have to make sure everyone knows I am not great w/video! Also, I mention in the video that I don't really have a mirror nearby so I couldn't really see what I was doing so it didn't turn out as neat as it would if I were close to a mirror.

 Details:
My sequin top is HERE! (On Sale 40% off for Black Friday!)
