Front Rope Braid & Braided Headband

I am going on day two of my little buns hairdo I did.  I try to not wash my hair for at least 3 days, and I can’t go much longer than that.

I am going to link this post up to The Pleated Poppy, No Model Lady, and Momma Go Round for an outfit of the week.  I was proud of this outfit because everything in it was from the 30×30!!  Whoop whoop!  It’s a bit fall-ish, and I am liking that even though our weather here isn’t entirely fall weather.  It was kinda nice to wear a scarf and boots.  This is what we like to call California Fall.

Top & leggings: Target; boots: Nordstroms Rack; Scarf: gift; Belt: can’t remember…
I tried two hairstyles today.  The braided headband I wore for the first half of the day.  You can barely see the braids which kinda defeats the purpose, so I think I am going to have to revisit this with some ribbon or something.
This is the rope braid.  You may have seen this around the web a bit, and that’s probably because it is cute and easy!  The video tutorial below is for this one.   I saw it first on My Yellow Sandbox, she has a lot of great hair inspiration and even an e-book!

I hope you are getting some hair inspirations this week!  How is the Hair Challenge going for ya?  Some different each day?  Just one day?  Maybe just an afternoon?  Anything counts!!

Here is the twisted rope braid tutorial: If you’d like to see another look using rope braids, here is how to do a rope braided bun!

Are there any hair styles that you would like to see me try to do?  I would love some suggestions!!  Either leave them in the comments or shoot me an e-mail!  I can’t wait to see all your hairstyles at the link up Friday!!
