Allow Me to Educate You {Hair Tutorial!}

"Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at."

...

Aaaand my mind drew a blank. 

The best I could come up with was a hairstyle I learned recently, that has gotten quite a bit of positive feedback. 



It's super easy, so I figured today would be a perfect day for my first {and possibly only} hair tutorial. Get excited, because you're going to love how simple this is. 


One // Use a bobby pin or two to pin back some of the top of your hair. 

Two // Take a chunk from the very front, and make a braid. Any size will do, I like mine to be a medium size. Temporarily use a rubber band to hold your braid.

Three // Take out the bobby pins that you originally used to pin the top portion of your hair.


Four // Take your braid over the top of your head. 

Five // Remove the rubber band, and replace it with bobby pins to hold the braid in place. 


Six // This part is optional depending on how your hair looks at this point. Since you are flipping the braid upside down, you may have a section of your scalp showing, or a bump. If you would like to cover this, take a small portion of the front of your hair (that was previously pinned back in the very beginning). 

Seven // Use a bobby pin to cover the bump/your showing scalp with this small piece of hair. 

And voila! You're done!



Hope you enjoyed this simple makeshift hair tutorial :)

It was that, or how to do the sorority arm pose. 


Let me know if your blog has a "how to pose in pictures" tutorial, because clearly, this is all I've got.
