Boho Side Braid ~ I’m a stylist…

I am sure you saw the outcome of the photo shoot that I was so privileged to be a part of about a month ago.  I had so much fun doing it the women involved are just incredible.  It is an excellent way to promote your business, specially if you are in the wedding industry.  So I thought was a better way to help my cousin get her little photography business off the ground than a styled shoot.

And I was the stylist!  I put together a vintage 1940’s travel themed shoot.  I thought our model looked beautiful and it was a lot of fun to do.
I thought it was only appropriate to dress like a stylist.  So I got my torn jeans, my baggy shirt, my bangles and hippie tree necklace and I was ready to go.
And to really complete the look, I gave myself a boho side braid. 
{I am really totally kidding about dressing like a stylist. I didn’t think that at all, I just happened to feel like a stylist with how I dressed and my hair and all, so I just went with it.}
By the way, my 4 year old son is my photographer.  Not bad, eh?  He might have a future here.  Anyone looking for a 7 foot photographer??  I guess he could get some different angles…
And again, I have a video!  Aren’t you proud of me?  And again I apologize for quality! 

So how is my little challenge coming?  I haven’t worn my hair in a regular pony tail since I started my 30×30!!  What kinds of hairstyles have you been trying?  I have some new ones up my sleeve that I saw on Pinterest today.  Can’t wait to try it!

E-mail me a picture of your hair efforts!  I want to feature them!  Even if it is just a cell phone pic, who cares, it’s evidence that you did it!!

Have a Happy Hair Day!!

By the way, here is a sneak peek at the shoot I styled. Isn’t the makeup incredible? And I made her little veil thing and did her hair. So fun!

    Hahaha, my 4 year old does my shots sometime, it's almost easier to be more natural with them than others isn't it? i love your look – especially love your necklace!!

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE the photoshoot pics, “Mimi!” haha. You and your hubs are naturals in front of the camera. How much fun that must have been to pretend to get married all over again!!

    Can we have a tutorial of your hair in the side pictures? I love the high bun and double hairband effect, and need to try and recreate it for a wedding next month. Just found your blog, but I will be a regular reader now!

    I love your blog – stumbled across it in my internet trawling tonight! 🙂 I am keen to do more with my hair than the usual bun or ponytail! WIll have to try this braid! 🙂 Thanks

  27. Ania September 15, 2011 at 12:39 pm #

    your outfit is cute and I love the hair. I will have to try it. I've always had short hair so I don't know what to do with long hair. I either wear it down, in a ponytail or buns. I'm getting so many cute ideas from fellow bloggers.

  28. Megan September 15, 2011 at 2:55 pm #

    how freaking pretty are you!?!?!? your hair looks perfect. i really wanna try some of these soon! im so bored with my blah hair!!! 🙂

    That style looks so nice! I might try it when my hair gets longer. I'm super impressed with your son's photography. Definitely, he might have a future.;)

    I followed you over from Southern Lovely because I really want to figure out how to do this hairstyle for myself, then had fun linking over to the styled shoot. I'm a photographer and I'd LOVE someone to style all my shoots!

  34. Marie October 25, 2011 at 4:13 am #

    Great job on the shoots! They look beautiful! I want my hair to be able to do this 🙂
