TUTORIAL | Chunky Side Braid

Tumbnail youtube DSC_0351 Update

*after I filmed, I sat outside, read a bit from my favorite book, and drink lemon infused water. BEST day!*

Well I asked and people answered.  I made a video… On Youtube.. on a hair tutorial.  PLEASE GO EASY ON ME!!!  Not kidding, this stuff is soooo freaking hard to do. It took me so many times to film, edit, (don’t get me started on the editing ha 😉 ) voice overs and exporting it.  I don’t know have daily youtubers do this!! I wouldn’t be able to sleep that’s for sure. (please note: I will be making more videos if people react the to videos well!) Well, it has taken me 2 days to complete this, and I’m “mildly” ok with it.  Being stubborn, I probably will never been 10000% satisfied with whatever I do because there is always room for improvement.  But, to save some time, I completed one task, now onto the next.  I’m actually really excited to share this video though since I’ve always wanted to be a “beauty guru” and sit in front of a camera and make videos. I’ve always been scared since I can be shy but I was hit with this “youtube” bug. So here it is. My first beauty guru is posted & live!! Feedback is much appreciated as well!! Thanks to everyone who voted in my poll and commented on facebook to what I should do. You have been so extremely helpful.. *also, in the video, I know half of my sentences made NO sense! I was sooo nervous. ha!!* Thanks for reading!

    Love your hair, and this is such a cute braid for summer! Your hair is such a beautiful blonde colour, what do you ask for when you go to the hair salon? I adore your blog! XOXO – Ema (www.theprettycitylife.com)

      Thanks Ema!! If you recreate the look, I definitely want to see! I’ve always been naturally blonde but this past time, I’ve asked to break my base with a 7N and then use bleach with 30 volume developer for the highlights! For every two highlights I pull one lowlight through with the 7N! If that makes no sense to you, thats okay, just tell that to the dresser and they’ll understand! I also ask for ombré because I’ve been liking the dark on top look! Thanks for reading!! Xoxo

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me personally.
    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you may did, the net will be considerably more useful than before.

    I used to be wondering if you happen to considered changing the structure of your
    website? Its very well written; I like what youve have got to say.
    But perhaps you could a little bit more when it comes to content so people
    could interact with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for just having one or two images.

    You may could space it better?

    Heya fantastic website! Does running a blog such
    as this take a great deal of work? I have absolutely no expertise in coding but I was hoping
    to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any ideas or techniques for new
    blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I simply needed to ask.

    This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to maintain a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (nicely, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I truly enjoyed what you had to say, and much more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
