Hair Week Day 4 - Ashley of the Shine Project

Today we have one of my favorite bloggers visiting.

Ashley from the Shine Project inspires a lot more than cute hair.  Her blog is dedicated to helping others in big and little ways.  She's sharing a cute hairstyle with us today, but I hope you'll also stop over HERE to read about an amazing new project she just launched called Threads.

Welcome Ashley!

Hey ladies! I'm Ashley from The Shine Project. My site is dedicated to inspiring and encouraging others to live the best life possible while lifting others around up! We just launched a new project yesterday called Threads, and we're so excited. We employ at risk youth to make amazing bracelets, and in turn they are able to pay their way through college. Nothing like giving the future leaders of America a chance. After you're done with the tutorial, I'd love for you to come check it out.

I'm a firm believer that if you want to save the world, or even just your kid from sticking that cheerio up their nose, that you need to feel good about yourself. I share different hair tutorials on my blog so you can feel pretty and worry about the other important things. 

Today I'm going to show you how to do the 
Fishtail Pull-back
(Ya, I make up my own names. I'm not fancy enough to know the real lingo.)

Step 1: Part your hair either down the middle or on the side you normally part on, and fishtail braid a front small section of your hair. I have a step-by-step tutorial on how to fishtail here if you don't know how. It's really really easy so don't get scared away!

2. Braid to the end of your section of hair, and wrap it around your head to place a bobby pin in the back. Do the same thing now to the opposite side of your hair, and have the two braids meet in the back.

3.If you have long hair, it will look a little messy where the braids meet because you'll have extra hair that was too long. Tuck those strands underneath the braid so that you can't see them anymore.

4. Put a bow over where the braids meet in the middle and you're all finished!
This takes me about 10 minutes max.

You can find a couple other of my favorite hair tutorials here and here

Shine on.

Thank you so much, Ashley!  And please take a second to check out Ashley's new project - Threads.  It's a great cause and the bracelets are RIDICULOUSLY CUTE.  See?  I promise you'll love them.  Go check out all the styles HERE.

Thanks for stopping by.

Why does that look more like a regular 3 strand braid to me? Is it because you are using less hair or because of the amount of hair you add each time? Cute hair style either way! Now I just have to get mine to grow a little more...every time I get close to "long" hair, I chop it all off!
