hair recreate // updated header!

First of all, how do you like my new header?

I know I've had it up for a couple weeks now, but I have been so busy with work and passing my state boards that I haven't had time to mention it.  

I love it, and it was made by my friend Susan over at 2 cats & chloe.  She is so talented with everything she does so when she offered to make me one, I gladly accepted!

Secondly, I wanted to show my version of the braid that I had posted a few weeks ago since some people asked and it's always fun to see someone else's version. Well my didn't exactly end up like Lauren's, but I think it's cute.  I love braids and am always wearing one (well, not always, but a lot!).  

My hair is pretty layered so the braid itself isn't real thick, plus I had a lot of fall out pieces that I had to hold up with some bobby pins.  It was annoying and pieces of the braid also poked out like little pieces of wheat or something.  The bottom part of my hair is definitely long enough to pull this off but because of the layers, they make the braid a bit short.

I will definitely wear this again, but I honestly couldn't tell too much of a difference between a regular braid and this version.  Nevertheless, it was fun to do























 If you try this, I wanna see!

Sweet! Love the braid! How long is your hair, unbraided? I am in the process of growing mine out again... just waiting for it to be long enough to do fun things with again. And thanks for the shout out!! xoxo
