The 4th

How were your guys' 4th of July? Having a 4-day weekend was the perfect remedy to my busy schedule. And I purposely took that time to catch up on my magazines & some much needed sun.

For the 4th, friends & I went to a local beach & since I have stick-straight hair, I knew that any beach waves I created wouldn't stay, so I opted for what most girls are doing - Dutch braids. My hair wasn't long enough, but the magic of bobby-pins helped.

+ Split hair down the center (I left my bangs parted to the side)
+ Braid each side & secure with hair ties
+ Simply pull each up to the center of your head & pin with bobby pins
+ Any left over strands only adds to the "modernness" of it - and helps prevent looking like a milkmaid.
