Hair Week Day 3 - Abby from My Yellow Sandbox and a GIVEAWAY

Wake Up Wednesday will resume as normal next week.  It's another wonderful day of hair today with a repeat guest from last year.


Last year Abby from My Yellow Sandbox shared THIS beautiful up-do.


She's back with a beautiful new one today.  Welcome Abby!


Well hello!  I'm Abby, the crazy blonde behind the blog My Yellow Sandbox.  I'm twenty-five,  a mother of two and I love Swedish Fish.  You can find me teaching new hairstyles and chatting beauty, fashion, crafts and family with my readers!


Cheri asked for a special hairstyle and so special you shall get!  This is a formal rolled up-do.  Don't be scared, it's much easier than it looks!  This hairstyle is so unique and perfect for those nights you want to turn heads.  I've never had so many compliments in my life!


Check out the video to get this look!



 Here are a few hairstyles I've recently posted over the last month or so.  If any of them catch your eye, hang a left at my place and I'll teach you how to get the look!

Thanks for having me Cheri!!  Hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Isn't that style gorgeous?  AND Abby is giving away FIVE of her Ultimate Hairstyle eBooks today to you readers.  Enter by leaving a comment here and we'll pick the winners at the end of the week.

Thanks for dropping in.

I am a sucky commenter, but this time I am definitely commenting because I would love to win an ebook. I have super long (like to my bum) and super thick and super heavy hair and so never do anything more than have it down, in a braid or in a ponytail or bun, so would love to try some of these styles by abby. Will definitely be checking out her site too!

Trish said...

I would love some ideas for long hair! Mine is usually up in a bun. Thanks for the giveaway!

Leigh Anne said...

Love her hair! And all of the styles! Thx for the inspiration :)

Rama said...

Yay for long hair styles! Maybe if I collect enough ideas, I'll be able to convince my daughter to do something with it! She has gorgeous red-auburn almost waist length hair, but everyday when I ask her how she wants it done, she says, "straight down." Aaarghhh!
