An Expert Tutorial on Tree Braids

Marquetta Breslin, from BraidsbyBreslin gives an awesome step-by-step tutorial on creating long, lustrous tree braids. We love how she breaks down each step so you can recreate this look at home. Enlist a friend (or two) to help with the braiding, those teeny, tiny strands take a looooong time to braid, but the results are worth it!

What you’ll need:

  • 18 inch hair extensions (wet and wavy hair is used in the video).
  • Duck bill clips – they really come in handy and can be used to comb, separate and secure the hair strands as you style.
  • Barbering strips to prevent fly aways while drying
  • Moisturizing oil or mousse to keep those strands smooth and silky
  • A Blow dryer
  • Lightweight gel to tuck in any strays

All set? Check out this video tutorial for the how-to:

Dry, Dull Hair is NOT a Good Look

ABBA Pure Shine DropsBe honest, is your hair dull and dry? Are those ends brittle (translation – scary!) and parched? Dry hair is not only lackluster and lifeless, it’s usually unhealthy too. We all know dull, frizzy hair is not a good look, so why not fix it?
 
If you are experiencing dull, lifeless hair, smooth things over with ABBA Pure Shine Drops. This super smoothing, shine enhancing elixir seals in moisture and adds a high gloss shine to every hair type with only few tiny drops. And in this case, less really is more – a drop or two does just fine! ABBA Pure Shine is loaded with Rice Bran Oil that restores natural luster to those dull strands and, my favorite feature of all – it fights frizz.

These drops are dedicated to improving manageability, and can be used on wet or dry hair. I like to use a tiny bit on the ends on wet hair to seal in the moisture, then I usually follow with an entire “once over’ with another two or three drops on my hair when it’s dry. This helps seal my strands and locks out the frizz factor.

It’s also extremely lightweight, safe for color-treated hair, and of course it’s from ABBA so rest assured it is 100% Vegan, Sulfate Free, DEA Free, Cruelty Free and Eco-Sensitive. All good stuff. Why wait? Go ahead and banish the brittle, dump the dullness, and fight the frizz for good with ABBA. You’ll notice the difference after just one drop.

Spring 2008 Hair Trend: Bangs are Back

We’ve spotted a number of celebs sporting fun, flirty bangs lately. If you’re looking to bang it out, it’s a great idea to go to your stylist armed with a few celebrity pictures for inspiration. Just remember, bangs this year are slightly curved under, not stuck to your forehead. Cleopatra bangs are so 80’s.
