Watch Me Style | Braided Updo

posted on: April 28, 2013

I have a new found respect for hairstylists.

By no means did I think their jobs we’re easy, but until I felt the sting in my lower back and ankles from being on my feet for hours braiding hair, I couldn’t even begin to say I understood. I still can’t.

My girl from college let me play in her hair this past weekend. I don’t do hair. I’ve never put my hands in someone’s hair or even fixed my mouth to say I would try. Not until this weekend when I was asked, “Can you do something with my hair please?”

I used Ecostyler Gel to smooth down her edges and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie to twist her hair.

The video may be 4 minutes and 13 seconds long, but trust me when I say this took me a long time to do. You can practically see the sleep dropping off of her face in the video below.

I learned that I can actually braid and I’m proud of myself.

Please subscribe to this blog and my YouTube channel to see more videos when they come out. I’m also on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

Much love,
